I listor: 2
Same great formula, now with a solid single-player game.
Those looking at Bad Company 2 as only a single-player game might come away disappointed. It's an action packed, gorgeous, and explosive game but it doesn't quite come together into a campaign for the ages. It more feels like an added bonus to the multiplayer game and for those in search of that, this is a great choice. Bad Company 2 as an online shooter is flexible and engaging, offering several features that the competition can only dream of. If you're looking for a more strategic and team-based change of pace, look no further. This is the game for you.
The team at DICE went for a more cinematic and epic feel with Bad Company 2 and almost nailed it.
Those backdrops sure are gorgeous. The destructible environments add to the chaos quite nicely.
Some fantastic audio samples and above average voice acting.
Solid shooting mechanics and an excellent approach to multiplayer combat.
Lasting Appeal (9/10)
This is the kind of multiplayer game you can go back to for months and months without getting bored.
