  1. It looks great, has fun characters, a load of interesting weaponry, and works nicely whether you’re playing alone or with a squad. The campaign lasts long enough to feel fulfilling, and the multiplayer kept me coming back once that was complete.
  2. Battlefield: Bad Company is an attempt to lure the Battlefield-audience to the consoles, and it's one fine attempt. The qualitative and humorous single player campaign is a fun experience that introduces the player to the gameplay in a great way. The real blockbuster feature here is the online mode which is jam packed with great features and modes, all of which are greatly enhanced by the destructible environments. All in all, this is one great experience.
  3. Seeing as how most military first-person shooters take themselves dead seriously, it's refreshing to see Battlefield: Bad Company's dark sense of humor.
  4. The writing is good, the characters are great, and the destructible environment actually plays an integral role in the game, rather than just serving as a claim to place on a sticker to move copies at Wal-Mart.
  5. Solid gameplay aside, strong characters coupled with occasional whiffs of Full Metal Jacket and Apocalypse Now ultimately help Bad Company transcend its lineage.
  6. In the previous Battlefield games we had to do without the singleplayer mode. Fortunately Bad Company is changing that.

    Personality, guns and destruction are Bad Company's strongest cards and it plays them hard. [Aug 2008, p.98]
