Single-player is a solid experience worth buying. But multiplayer is the prom queen here, and a serious Modern Warfare rival. With Infinity Ward in flux, Battlefield could emerge as the premiere military shooter in the next few years.
Though it occasionally stumbles, there's one thing that Bad Company 2 clearly demonstrates: DICE has graduated from the, "can only do a multiplayer FPS" class, and is perfectly capable of making a great all-around game.
Bad Company 2 as an online shooter is flexible and engaging, offering several features that the competition can only dream of. If you're looking for a more strategic and team-based change of pace, look no further. This is the game for you.
The cliche 'game of two halves' normally conjures up images of classic football comebacks, but after staggering through the glaringly uneven single-player campaign in Bad Company 2, twenty-four hours after spending a whole day solidly playing the superb multiplayer component, there's hardly a more apt description of DICE's wannabe CoD-killer. This is all about the online game.
There's no denying the appeal of Bad Company 2's multiplayer. DICE is still expertly nailing down what it pioneered all the way back in 2002, and the experience remains far from stale. However, poor design in the single-player makes for a campaign that's not only lacklustre throughout, but cripplingly buggy at times as well.
This game may have been worthwhile when it came out, but now days there is no reason to buy it anymore, the reason being multiplayer is dead nobody is online anymore, I was able to play two or three matches during my time with it which is probably do to the fact that Battlefield 3 is out, or maybe because of the limited modes and maps, but what I played of the multiplayer I really enjoyed and I would love to play more but sadly I can't because no one plays it anymore, and the campaign ****, it's no fun at all, the story seems tacked on just to have one, ditches the sense of freedom that gave the originals its charm, and suffers from cheap deaths, one good thing about it is Marlowe and the crew of Bad Company are as likable as ever, it's just sad there mission isn't, it really pains me to have to give it this score because I can see from what little I was able to play that when multiplayer was popular it was the bomb, but now its dead, I guess like all good things, it had to come to an end.
This is a review of the single player because the multiplayer is amazing. I know it I have played it way too much as a kid but now I'm playing the single player because it's a kind of the only thing that's still alive.
So you remember that like Cast of characters for the first game that has agency going out to do their own thing finding goals lay making plans just all around just a kind of funny goofball group. They are back with no agency this time.
They feel like they're mostly here because hey they're likeable and we have to put them in the sequel even if the stories were done in the first game and now it fills like most of their charismat has been **** out of their face I saw that they had a new writte for this game. So maybe he didn't know how to write them correct.
But the gameplay is better than the original and what I mean. Is that it feels like the most okay shooter for this time when you shoot the enemies and that is about it. No more big Maps you can go about and finish the objective for many angles now you play like a generic Call of Duty game and not one of the good ones.
Locally the multiplayer is amazing and fun, but sadly I have inviting this review at a time. Where it no longer exists on the console, so that's just about it. Hope you have good memories about it because now we're just lived with a bad single player.
