Yeah, I Was In The Shit

Conclusion: A nice diversion that breathes new life into an older title, certainly worth the $15 asking price for those still playing regularly. It is a shame they didn't at least dabble with taking the levels out of the jungle and into the city though.
Conclusion: Ultimately, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is one of the best FPS titles currently available. Single-player might not be exceptionally heavyweight, but it manages to mostly push all the right buttons. It's multiplayer where the real substance lies though and it's there that you'll find that BF:BC2 offers real long term gameplay that's both satisfying and infinitely entertaining. And that's really Bad Company 2 in an artillery shell.
Excerpt: It's no secret that EA wants its own Modern Warfare, but in recent years the mega publisher has struggled to put together a game that can shift units in numbers even approaching what Activision's series has. In DICE, the Swedish studio behind the Battlefield series, EA has a development team more than up to the job, and its latest effort, Battlefield: Bad Company 2, is without a doubt the best modern combat FPS the publisher has ever produced.
Excerpt: During World War 2, a squad of heroic American soldiers made its way to a small island off the coast of mainland Japan to meet up with a defector and to bring him home to the United States. The operation had all of the earmarks of a suicide mission, but those brave men had their orders, they had their strength and they had enough determination that there was no reason to question their ability to overcome the odds stacked against them.
Excerpt: It’s fair to say that that my PS3 and Battlefield: Bad Company 2 disc are very well acquainted by now, having spent the better part of three months together. No other game has provided me with such ample amounts of entertainment so far this year, and, as a result, an inhumane number of hours of my insignificant existence have been poured into painstakingly upgrading my online ranking. I also like to think I’m a proficient player, and am very proud of my dedication.
Conclusion: For the price of some very good standalone PSN games, you can purchase a separate mode that is fun in it's own right. What ultimately detracts from Onslaught is its disconnect the proper multiplayer. Knowing this, any fan of the game should consider it.
Excerpt: Since the beginning with Battlefield 1942 , DICE's Battlefield series has been hugely influential of all other multiplayer shooters. Over the years, the series' focus on large-scale battles has dwarfed the competition, taking the core concepts of games like Tribes and making them work with a more realistic military backbone. For years, DICE focused on this concept, bringing game after game to PC, something that changed with the release of Battlefield: Bad Company.
Excerpt: When it comes down to multiplatform first person shooters, many think that Infinity Ward's Call of Duty has that market cornered. Well, they don't, because Electronic Arts and DICE have something to say about that with their all new Battlefield entry: Bad Company 2. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is truly a solid effort from a multiplatform game, an effort we'd really love to see more of from other developers and publishers.
Excerpt: released in late 2009, it quite easily became the ultimate offering to gamers looking for a multiplatform online multiplayer shooter that would provide long-term satisfaction, with its exhaustive series of upgrades and unlocks wrapped up in the refined, battle-tested gameplay developer Infinity Ward is known for.
