Rated 10 out of 10 by fps fan this is great
I love this game. What can I say? It has a beautiful story, amazing acting and the online is perfect (well for me at least). The sound for me though was a bit weird. The guns kinda sounded all the same; just a loud explosion stuff. I don't own this; I rented it, but I'm skeptical about whether I should get the regular or the gold. Sure, you get the weapons easier, but you can earn them and you don't have to pay the extra ** dollars. I know this game is a definite buy, though, for anyone that likes shooters, online shooters and/or comedy games. Oh, and also the unlockables were a bit weird for me too, because if you're like me and you bash through games as fast as you can, then go back through to find all the extras. It kinda annoyed me a bit that you had to find them all and there were quite a bit of them. Maybe if you unlocked them or earned them, but having to go search through every single house was a bit annoying for me. Otherwise, buy this game. You won't regret it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Rengaw (CigarShot) BC Battlefield is a HIT
I've luv'd the Battlefield series and this release is no slouch, it's got everything you'd expect except for parachutes and laying flat to snipe, oh and a couple more maps wouldn't have hurt either. Other than that I highly recomend this game, I luv the gold disc and all the weapons, team play is good, sorta miss capture the flag mode though it's ok, also it's real enough to be able to accidentially kill your team mates but some guys just go too far and it ruins some of games, it would have been nice to have a no damage friendly mode. The Knife is a little over powered and some of the guns a little under powered, tanks are not much more tough than a jeep but pack a little extra punch if you don't mind the wait for the next shot. Of all the things I miss the most though it's probably the sniper zoom mode, all scopes are single view. Great game over all and thanks to all who helped make it happen, keep up the great work. PS3 version rocks!

First, the graphics are the best I've seen in a modern shooter. The attention to detail is what you should expect from EA. The Dice engine is jaw-dropping! Secondly, the online play is so addicting, I've been losing a lot of sleep since the demo first launched. The availability of several types of ground vehicles, attack helicopters, and stationary guns also adds to the fun. Each ground vehicle allows up to two people, one to drive and one to man the machine guns. Add a totally destructable environment and a good teammate, and even the smallest vehicle can have devastating effects. I experienced absolutely zero lag during the online play, which impressed me even more. I'm counting the days until the full version. I can't wait to see what other features are available.

I preordered the Gold Edition of the game for PS3. The only advantages of the gold edition is that u get a weapon from each class right away without having to level up to 25th rank, which kind of takes away from leveling up but gives u a fair advantage on the battlefield. I got the demo on the 29th and thought it was alright. The weapons are kind of off balanced. The assault rifles have barely any power, I ran up behind someone and it took 13 shots just to kill him without missing. The map Oasis seems more like a vehicle/tank war based map, but is good enough for the demo. Snipers are alright except that bolt action ones are only for really skilled players because of a fairly long time between shots. I hope the full game is a lot better than the demo and I give it a 8/10 right now.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Master Chief117 Pretty Sweet
Alright, first off, this game beats Call of Duty 4. Many Call of Duty fans may not agree. The distructible environments add a great twist to the battlefield. There is no place to hide!The unlocking weapons is pretty cool and the ranks are cool. There should be more maps, both singleplayer and multi. I would reccomend this game to others because it is a sweet shooter. I wish you could give commands and that there was a offline multiplayer mode. :-) You can only talk to other squadmates, which is cool and not. If your friend is not in your squad, it stinks. If only you and your friend are in a squad, it rocks. The maps can get very large, and the sniping benefits pour out of the large buildings and mountanous ranges. They controls are a little different from others, such as R1 shoot.
Rated 0 out of 10 looks great!!! but.......
I have to say that BFBC looks really cool but the problem I have that it's gonna be like battle field 2 modern combat for ps2 how its gameplay is? if so i might not buy it but rent it but if its more realistic like an actual military game should be then ill just have to get it and what i mean by what i said is it like BF2MC is like if you had a m4 and u shoot someone and it doesn't do as much as an mp5 or like an AK-47 does the same amount of damage as the m4 where it was all off balanced and it was best to be a sniper or special ops because of the over powered fake weapons (special ops class generally) thats really the only thing i didn't like about battle field was hoe off balanced it was but hopefully Bad company will be different and more realistic and not so off balanced.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Grant Oehmler WAY better than Call of Duty!
I bought this game thinking that it would just be a replay of call of duty, but boy was I WAAAAY off! Never have I ever played a more fun, challenging, realistic shooter than "Bad Company". I love how they introduce so many new guns, like a more modern version of the AK and MP5. I absolutely love the characters that you fight with. They are just like a real squad, cracking jokes, nagging each other, and talking about things that a real teen/man would talk about in that situation. And to top it all off, I haven't even tried the multiplayer, but I've heard really good things about it. So, if you want to be immersed into a whole new genre of shooter, don't look over this game. I promise that It won't dissapoint you if you really are a 1st person shooter fan. Buy it. Period.
Rated 8 out of 10 by mike70535 Bad(Company) is good..but...
I found it pretty fun overall and I'll probably play it over again to find all the unlockables. However it should have had more combat between the enemy combatants and your squad. It just seemed like there were more tanks and armored vehicles to overcome instead of actual combat. When you do come across the enemy, they seem to rather hide or run instead of engaging you. I love being able to use any vehicle available. That part is awesome. Especially the anti-aircraft guns. The story is good. Makes it even more fun with a storyline that's easy to follow and funny as heck. I hope there's a sequel of sorts because overall it is a definite buy for those that play shooters. I just hope they keep the same developers. I am not a fan of games that flip-flop between developers.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Jazz816 OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have never played a fps game before, so when I downloaded the demo I was skeptical. (My cousin loved it and persuaded me to try it.) I played the demo for twenty minutes and then went out and bought the game. All I can say is OH MY GOD! The graphics and the interface (along with everything else in the game) just blew me away. The DICE engine creates gameplay that is unparalleled by any game that I have ever played. The story line is great and is historically funny, although as with all good games it is too short. The controls are easy to use and remember, and they add some usually unused controls too, like L3 to crouch. The sound is awesome and one of the biggest things in the game is that there are absolutely no glitches! No lag lines or anything! The online experience is great, although you might want to mute the microphones, because players with the headsets tend to use vulgar language. If they make a sequel to this game, the only thing that I hope they would add would be the longer storyline and maybe make the weapons hold more ammo. But, once you get into the story and online these small problems won't matter to you because YOUR IN BAD COMPANY NOW SOLDIER! All in all, this is the best game you will ever own and I can almost totally guaranty that you will love it! NOW GET OUT THERE AND KILL SOME RUSSIANS!

Yeah, so I thought I'd just "inform" a few who need not know what FPS etc. To buy in Quarter 2 of this year.... This is definitely one of EA's finest works of art with the new DICE Frostbite Engine Environments 90% +++ of the time can be blown up. I'm going to be getting the Retail Gold Edition just so I can get all of the goodies that come with this slaughter-fest of a game. As you probably know already, this game features a 24-player online experience with a new game mode "gold rush". It has new vehicles, Weapons, Story, Better Graphics... Pretty much everything a new battlefield game should have. Cannot wait baby gonna pick this one up right when it comes out 6/23/08!!!!
