""Ok, we're unf*cking the situation ourselves!""

This is just a really neat, enjoyable shooter. It is on the short side, though. I finished it in a couple of days easy.

I don't think it's as good as the first one. I remember the first game being longer and having more freedom. A lot of the action took place in wide open areas, and you had the freedom to capture a variety of vehicles to help you complete your goals. That's pretty much gone in this game. The levels are smaller and much more confined. They are also very linear. You still use vehicles here and there but you are not afforded the same freedom. Most of the time you're on foot except in dedicated vehicle sections. For instance you're given an Abrams tank for one (rather short) mission, but once you reach your objective you have to get out and that's it, no more tank action. And that was the only time you could use a tank in the entire game! I remember in the first game frequently borrowing T-80s and BMPs, hopping in and out, repairing them with my power tool, and just generally having a big ole time crashing around the country side in them. That's all gone, sadly.

It uses the checkpoint save system, which sucks but seems to be standard on console shooters. It also has health regeneration, which really sucks. In the first game you healed yourself with a needle. The problem was you could carry as many as you wanted. I thought it would have been far better if you could only carry three or four. You'd have to find more as you went. They've gone in the exact opposite direction unfortunately, by removing the injections altogether. Now your health regenerates on its own as in Gears of War and (I still can't get over this) Mass Effect 2. It's something I really personally don't like. Not one little bit.

I also intensely dislike onscreen prompts that look like Xbox controller buttons, but that seems to be another standard feature of console games. Someone should tell them, if you want to detract from immersion into the game, that right there is one damn good way of doing it.

But the good news is your team is back! These guys helped make the first game what it is. Not only are they helpful in combat they're real characters. The actors do a great job voicing the characters and banter between them can sometimes be quite funny.

There are lots of very cool guns to choose from. Honestly it's agony choosing which one to take with you sometimes!

One improvement over the first game is they've done away with player respawn when you die. Now when you die you load the last checkpoint rather than spawning in again like it's a damn deathmatch.

All in all a really fun, polished and enjoyable game. But the short length and the restrictive levels hold it back in comparison to its predecessor.

"Battlefield at it's best."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This game is Battlefield at its best. I purchased it in March 2010, I enjoyed this more than BF3 and way more than BF4 and Dice says they “don't get” why their fans love Bad Company!- Enjoyable campaign characters and a multiplayer catchy and amazing, equalled MW2 easily. Awesome.

"Amazing"

This is literally the best game I have ever played, I nearlycried when it arrived

Description

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Limited Edition includes:

Four vehicle warfare unlocks

  • Improved Vehicle Armor - An up-armor package is mounted on all vehicle types, decreasing the effect of both explosive and penetrating warheads, significantly improving vehicle survivability.
  • Supreme Vehicle Firepower - Additional weapon packages are mounted for the driver of all armored vehicles, greatly expanding the range of targets the vehicle can successfully engage and destroy.
  • Vehicle Motion Sensor - Use this electronics warfare package to locate enemy units in direct proximity to the vehicle.
  • Tracer Dart Pistol - This magnetic dart attaches to any vehicle surface, allowing squad members to track, lock on, and fire rockets onto moving targets even beyond line of sight.

Two classic Battlefield 1943 weapons

  • M1A1 Submachine Gun - Reliable but heavy this classic weapon is a powerful force in the hands of any Battlefield veteran.
  • M1911 Pistol - Highly customized M1911 are favoured for its dependability and the power of its large .45 calibre round.
Get ready for the most spectacular FPS multiplayer experience ever! Battlefield Bad Company 2 brings the spectacular Battlefield gameplay to the forefront of next-gen consoles and PC - featuring best-in-class vehicular combat set across 8 huge sandbox maps each with a different tactical focus. New vehicles like the All Terrain Vehicle (ATV) and the UH-60 transport helicopter allow for all-new multiplayer tactics in the warzone, extensive tuning ensures that this will be the most satisfying vehicle combat experience to date. Tactical destruction is taken to new heights with the updated DICE ‘Frostbite’ engine. Players can now take down entire buildings or create their own fire points by blasting holes through cover, thereby delivering a unique experience in every match.

Players can also compete in 4-player teams in 2 exclusive squad-only game modes, fighting together to unlock exclusive team awards and achievements. Spawn on your squad to get straight into the action, and use gadgets such as the tracer dart in-conjunction with the RPG to devastating effect. Excellence in the battlefield is rewarded with an extensive range of pins, insignias and stars to unlock along with 50 dedicated ranks to achieve. Variety also extends into the range of customisable kits weapons and vehicles available. With 4 distinct character classes, 46 weapons, 15 gadgets, 13 character specializations and over 15000 kit variations to discover and master players will be able to fine-tune their preferred fighting style to give them the edge in combat.

All of these features combine to deliver spectacular and unpredictable action moments found nowhere else in the genre. Battlefield Bad Company 2 is all-out multiplayer warfare at its absolute finest!

The modern battlefield is evolving and once again "B" Company are caught on the front line. Already one of the most popular online shooters ever, this latest game adds greater variety and greater destruction than ever seen before.

For the first time you will be able to raze buildings to the ground, with almost every object on the map being completely destructible. It's not just the scenery that takes damage more realistically though, as this is the first Battlefield game since Vietnam to feature blood wounds.

Despite all the new vehicles, weapons and specialist equipment though the game is more accessible than ever with preset equipment kits that let you choose a basic style of play (assault, engineer, recon or medic) and immediately get started. With an improved single player and story mode too this is ready to take its place as one of the definitive online shooters of modern times.

Features:

  • Modern warfare: More destruction, more weapons, more vehicles and more variety await in the biggest and most complete Battlefield experience so far.
  • Total annihilation: New Destruction 2.0 technology allows you to level buildings and engage in "micro-destruction" by chipping away at an enemy's cover.
  • Packing heat: More than 46 different weapons which can be customised to create 200 different firearms and over 15,000 possible kit variations.
  • Army transport: Take control of 15 different vehicles on land, air and sea - from the new UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter to boats, tanks and armoured cars of every description.
  • See the world: The biggest variety in locations ever for a Battlefield game, from icy mountaintops, to dense jungles, arid deserts and dusty villages.
