In Battlefield: Bad Company 2, the 'B' company fight their way through snowy mountaintops, dense jungles and dusty villages. With a heavy arsenal of deadly weapons and a slew of vehicles to aid them, the crew set off on their mission and they are ready to blow up, shoot down, blast through, wipe out and utterly destroy anything that gets in their way. Total destruction is the name of the game, delivered as only the DICE next generation Frostbite engine can. [Electronic Arts] Expand

    Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is as complete a package as you could ever ask for. Multiplayer-heavy titles can be a fickle beast, but we’re pretty sure we’ll be playing this one for quite some time to come.
  2. Both single player and multiplayer experiences excel in Bad Company 2, and the sequel is a great step up from its first iteration. This is one of the best and most addictive on-line experiences in a shooter in years.
  3. This really is one of the best looking console shooters I've ever played.

    It's kind of like DICE has trained for a game development biathlon, resulting in its first game where the single-player mode is just as good as the multiplayer -- and that says DICE has what it takes to be among the best in the business.
  5. 'Battlefield: Bad Company 2' comes armed with a heavy arsenal and some bad attitudes, and delivers another solid shooting experience that will please fans of the original, and dare I say it, the “COD” clan as well.
  6. Overall Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is a sequel worthy of taking your attention away from other shooter out there.
  7. 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.

The Single Player Campaign is the best in its class and the Multiplayer has some of those epic 'Battlefield' moments. And, the way that you can customize your 'classes' in a multiplayer game is much better than those of Call of Duty. It is definitely a better game than the first Bad Company and is worth the purchase. I could not disagree more with JohnD, as if one side has something such as a helicopter it can get frustrating getting killed over and over but it puts you into a hard situation that YOU have to deal with. Also, if you level up or unlock something in-game you get to change and use it, in-game. For a basic summary, best in it's class and I have played EVERY Battlefield game to date. This is incredible.

I went in thinking "oh look another call of duty game" but it's actually much better than any COD I've played. The graphics are stellar, the characters are immediately likeable, and the sound effects and weapons design are top notch. The only downside is that the single player mode is a little short, but on the other hand this is by far the best multiplayer game on the PS3. Look at it this way: It's bene out for 6 years now and STILL had a live server with thousands of players active on a daily basis. I don't even think COD can boast that. Plus, the DICE engine really shines on this game and allows you to decimate environments in real-time. A real blast to play! Definitely a top contender for best PS3 game I've played. Expand

    nikko!! you MORON!! MW2 runs at 600p! But anyway gave this game a 10 as it is ultimate fun! wont compare it to MW2 as ive played the hell out nikko!! you MORON!! MW2 runs at 600p! But anyway gave this game a 10 as it is ultimate fun! wont compare it to MW2 as ive played the hell out of that game and find it boring with its terrible maps. Bad company 2 has the best multiplayer experience out there, with great vehicles, game modes and weapons. Maps are very good and are suited to people who like to snipe or run and gun. If you havent played this game and are struggling for money, i suggest you trade in MW2. Expand

It has all the bells and wistles you expect from a new shooter and some that other don't have. The inclusion of vehicles in multiplayer makes a big differnce.

I have quite a few complaints about the single player, but since i am not going to finish it, i wont voice them. However, the multiplayer is a blast. It offers a nice change of pace for those who got sick of campers in MW2. I say rent it to see if you like it and then go out and buy it if you do. Expand
