Battlefield: Bad Company 2: Reviewed (PS3, 360)
7 September 2013
Excerpt: This year will see a whole deluge of FPS titles coming to the gaming arena but the beginning of March brings a direct competitor to Modern Warfare 2 to the fore. Although, the scene has been somewhat dominated by a certain Infinity Ward title I have found that this franchise is fast becoming stale with no new innovation. There is a gap appearing in the market and EA are making serious headway into filling that void.

Excerpt: Finally, we have a game that is something different to the Modern Warfare franchise in the form of Battlefield: Bad Company 2. The differences between Modern Warfare 2 and Battlefield are vast with Battlefield opting for a more strategic approach to your shooter, providing glorious destructable playgrounds that are balanced in design.
Excerpt: I've been playing the Battlefield games since 1942, not the year, the game Battlefield 1942. I've always loved that the games were unapologetically multiplayer only, and that that multiplayer action was always so frantic and wide-open. No other series of games has been able to match the kind of gameplay in Battlefield games that lets you do things like hop into a plane and fly to an enemy base, parachute in and capture it, hop into a machine gun nest to defend it from...
Conclusion: With all of those flaws, it is obvious that N3II: Ninety-Nine Nights isn’t for everyone. However those things that it does well it does so exceptionally that it’s worth a lot more than a cursory glance. Considering similar games on the market are so slow to evolve, it is amazing that N3II: Ninety-Nine Nights has done so much. It is a bold game, one that hit the mark more often than it missed, and it is worth an addition to almost any gamer’s collection.
Shooter series gets more graphic, bumped from T to M rating.

Summary: Parents need to know that Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is an M-rated game, unlike the first game in the series which was rated "T" by the ESRB. The first game in the Bad Company series featured plenty of gunplay, but had no blood and only minor profanity. In contrast, this sequel shows blood with almost every bullet impact, and the soldiers’ mouths are decidedly dirtier.
Excerpt: There has always been profit to be made out of war and computer games are no different. Modern Warfare 2 and MAG made a healthy profit so not to be left out EA and DICE takes us back to the Bad Company outfit and the wake of death that follows them. Set after the conclusion of Bad Company , the team has been given carte blanch to gather intel and locate a WMD which has the “suits” scared out of their wits, the power of which is briefly shown in a playable...
Excerpt: In the holy trinity of Fallout 3 downloadable content, Bethesda promised their flock three additional packs of content that would expand upon the rich, post-apocalyptic universe that they had taken from Interplay and re-invigorated as their own. The first, Operation Anchorage , was a major letdown, an excellent premise marred by linear storytelling, uninspiring weapon choice and limited exploration.
Summary: Wow, what a fun ride. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 brings the boys from Bravo Company back and sets them on another crazy adventure they didn’t ask for. Delivering an experience on par with a summer blockbuster movie, the single-player campaign took me on an adventure through South America that spanned snow-covered mountains and rainy, dense jungles.
Conclusion: It has a more realistic feel then COD (and also it doesn't take a full clip to kill a enemy) but it also lacks the same feeling as multiplayer COD. My experience so online has been a lot of lone wolfing which is fine all, but I haven't really been able to talk to other gamers. I guess it's probably because I am only starting out a good couple years after the game has been out. All in all though I give this game 4.5 out of 5 stars. Bottom line THIS GAME IS AWESOME.
