Rated 9 out of 10 by bogs13 Better than Black Ops
Picked up Bad Company 2 last month and played through campaign and thought it was pretty good though not as good as the call of duty campaigns. After that I started to play multiplayer. I haven't been able to stop playing since! Almost every part of the map can be destroyed, you can go into every house, and other great features. There more than 5 tanks you can use depending on the map, Different cars, helicopters, and map-based weapons. Starting out wasn't easy after playing CoD multiplayer. CoD is easy for anyone to play, everyone uses same guns, goes to same spots, etc. and has more instant action. Battlefield is the complete opposite. Strategy and a little bit of skill are needed to win games, a variety of weapons, and the maps are so big its hard to go to the same spot twice. The only online glitch I've seen is sometimes when your team wins it will actually say your team lost. After playing this I am definitely going to buy Battlefield 3.
Rated 10 out of 10 by GaminSince86 Best multiplayer war game on the market.
Battlefield is like any other game when it comes to flaws. It has them, but its the best multiplayer war simulation game on the market. It blows every Call of Duty game away as far as gameplay goes. If you are trying to decide what game plays the best online for a first-person shooter then you have to try this one. This game and Halo3 are my top two favorite multiplayer games to date. I know a lot of people are captivated by Call of Duty, but its only because of the built up hype and they probobly haven't played this game. Do not listen to it and try this game. I've played and prestiged through many levels in all of the Call of Duty games and they always feel laggy and unfair. I know what I'm talking about because I've put days worth of hours into them all. Call of Duty is awsome for Zombies, but thats it. As far as the best multiplayer war simulation game on the market goes..... Battlefield wins hands down to date by far.
Rated 9 out of 10 by Sightz A true masterpiece of art
This game is one of the few that I pick up and listen to music without feeling that Im missing out on an advantage. You can not wait around the corner, waiting until you hear a poor soul walk around the corner. There is just so much sound happening all the time, it make it seem that you're actually on the battlefield fighting with your fellow comrades. This game also has a unique feature in that you can actually destroy the battlefield. This allow you to stragetically destory certain areas to give your team the upperhand. Ex. Your playing rush, and you need to get to the A bomb site quick. Use a tank to blow a whole in a building, quickly plant the bomb and retreat to the roof of the building to rain bullets on approaching enemies. Singleplayer is amazing, until you get to the last mission i won't spoil anything but it didn't feel satisfying as the rest of the lengthy missions. If you don't have time to sit down and play for 30mins. Don't bother picking this up or the upcoming Battlefield 3 (different series, still basic concept though* as these games can run an easy 30mins constantly.
Rated 10 out of 10 by ismokedu420 Best Modern Style Shooter
i had always been a call of duty fan but i decided to try buy this game. i was amazed when i first played. it played so much cleaner than felt more realistic than CoD. Campain is pretty fun but short and funny also. multiplayer is awesome. the thing that makes multiplayer so good is that every class is balanced. someone before said shotguns are overpowered which is bullcrap. shotguns are finally useful in a shooter like CoD style, and you cant use an assault rifle for every situation like CoD where you can easily only use one weapon youre entire multiplayer experience. one of the coolest things about this game is the ability to destroy cover and buildings. i only have one bad thing to say about this game and that is that for the size of levels in multiplayer, it seemed like it could use more players in a match because its harder to find enemies
Rated 9 out of 10 by SteathHunter94 Great Game for all players
Battlefield Bad Company 2 Ultimate Edition is a great game overall. Graphics are excellent. Because Battlefield Bad Company 2 has destructive cover you can chip away cover and your enemies become exposed. Also if you feel lazy you can always find the window that the enemy is in and blow a huge hole in the wall or just take the entire building down. Also the sound is excellent. If an explosion went off beside you, your hearing would be effected making it more realistic. Also gun recoil and gun noise is accurate. Guns are great and they all have their different uses. Gameplay i felt was fluid and it made sense. It didn't jump around too much. I don't have any current complaints about the game. Overall again Battlefield Bad Company 2 is great and currently i would advise getting the ultimate editon for the VIP maps and extras.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Iam08 Overall fantastic game.
This is fantastic game. The campaign has a great story line from the start the start and keeps you in it from beginning to end. The Frostbite engine used in this game helps with the great sound as well. Online sounds very much like an actual battlefield in this game as you can hear almost every shot fired from a gun around you. If you have surround sound, prepare to immerse yourself. With graphics equally as superb it is a great game. Those are the positives, and here are the negatives. This game has some bad lag. Not extremely bad, and not consistently, but there are times when you go to knife an enemy player online and the knife phases through them. Disconnections happen sometimes as well, but overall it is good. Aside from those two it is a well put together game I would recommend to anyone.
Rated 8 out of 10 by KickingBear A Fantastic FPS with one game breaking flaw
I absolutely love the way this game plays online. It definitely demands more tactics than similar shooters. Playing sniper is particularly fun in BC2. But I ran into a horrible glitch that made me not buy it. There can be a problem connecting to the ea servers and it will not show any unlocks you may have received and will entirely reset your rank you will not gain any xp without being properly connected. This is an off and on occurance but it can last from a few short minutes to 48+ hours. Last time i played it i hadn't got my stuff back for 2 days, so it may have completely over wrote all my saved data. Apparently EA hasn't fixed this problem for months and unsure if they ever will. So im just waiting for BC3 or Battlefield 3. Such a shame that a great game had to have such a dire bug
Rated 10 out of 10 by SoapOnARope Incredible Game
Well with MW3 coming out the same month as BF3, we'll get to see a huge flame war between the fanboys. Now on to the review: The dynamics and gameplay of this game are awesome. It really gives you the feeling of being in a fire fight. The guns have recoil which means that kids you cant just go into a match and expect to be able to drop targets on full auto at 200 yards. Also the bullet drop and drift when sniping adds in an extra challenge and really gives you a feeling of accomplishment when you hit someone at long range. My only gripe is that online is really youre only option here. Onslaught is for XBL, 1943 is XBL (1943 is kick a*s) and after campaign theres nothing more to do with single player. In the online battles the maps are huge and offer tons and tons of options. Each class can be effectively used on each map. Squad spawning is a huge plus. Vehicles are loads of fun. Only dislike about gameplay its self is that when you reload, no matter what weapon, your character will load a new magazine and then slap it a second time-which adds an extra 2 seconds to your reloading time. Thats huge when youre in the heat of battle. And with bolt action weapons you have to release scope to chamber the next round.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Gary Honest Review
Alright. First of all, get this game new because of all the downloadable content. I have played COD since i was 11 or 10 and i am 15 now. COD is honestly, nothing, to this game. (cept for zombies). in fact, the 2 games are in NO WAY alike! this game focuses on team strategy and preporation. it isnt run and gun. if you try to run and gun, you will be shot. the classes are fun to rank up in, recon, engineer, assault, medic. each class has its ups and downs. the DOWNSIDE to this game (for me) is that since im a fairly new player (a noob) i rarely do well. My K/D ratio hovers around 1. wheras my COD KD is like 2.8... If you are new, you will struggle. Also, i dont really like the story mode. It seems.... not deep. I dont know, mauybe if you played BC1. final say: buy it.
Rated 10 out of 10 by bc2rules the downfall of cod starts................
Okfirst of DO NOT listen to the cod fanbboys this game is insaaanely amazing. Imagine being in a building sniping then a tank starts shooting at the building then you hear a squeeking sound. Then!!! The buildings collapsing get out!!!!!!!!! You jump out plant 2 c4 on the tank explode it kill yourself but get a double kill cause thre was 2 ppl in the tank. This is 1 of the least epic things that could happen. Campain is beast and funny. Haggard is hilarous. Get this!!!!!!!!!!!! It is the best fps of all time! Battefield 3 will b better but thats in october. O yeah and a good strategy to take out tanks is but c4 on a quad bike and drive it up to a take jump off and blow it up sometimes u kill ur self but its worth it to kill a tank.
