Battlefield: Bad Company 2 -- Limited Edition (Sony PlayStation 3, 2010)
About this product
|Players reenlist for more mercenary combat through massively destructible environments in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. A direct sequel to the original, the game has players resuming their place among the AWOL squad that found its fortune at the end of the first Bad Company. Picking up the plotline soon after the end of the first game, the story follows the group through the rocky Russian border and beyond, with missions set in dense jungles and barren deserts as well as snow-covered mountains.|
Buildings and other objects of all sizes can be damaged or destroyed completely, with the right firepower at the right time and place. Players can proceed through each mission as they see fit, be it through stealthy ambushes, keen tactical strikes, or heavily armed frontal assaults that leave nothing but smoldering rubble in their wake.
As in the first game, players customize their characters by choosing an equipment kit before the start of each mission. In Bad Company 2, four basic kits are available: Assault, Engineer, Recon, and Medic. Each gives the character special abilities and limitations, encouraging squad-mates to support one another and work together as a team. As in earlier Battlefield games, players may commandeer vehicles they find in their missions, including motorcycles, patrol boats, tanks, and Blackhawk helicopters.
Characters earn experience for killing enemies and accomplishing mission objectives. Experience points can be spent to upgrade the character. Player characters can also collect dog tags from the enemies they take down. In addition to the single-player campaign, the game supports a variety of online multiplayer options, including an assault-style "Rush" mode in which teams take turns defending and attacking crates of valuable cargo.
The Limited Edition of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 ships with a number of in-game features unlocked for immediate use, including radar functions, extra tank armor, and three additional infantry weapons.

From the moment I laid my hands on Battlefield: Modern Combat for the PS2 I knew this series was going to be my new home. I had previously played Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, SOCOM and Black Hawk Down games on the PS2 and even though they were great single player and online competitive games they lacked something [in multiplayer]that is ever present in any battlefield: Vehicles.
Modern Combat was the highest point for first person shooters in the PS2 because it gave players the full experience [as much as a video game can provide] of being engaged in warfare. From Humvee s to light and heavy tanks, and from armed boats to transport and heavily armed choppers.
This is not to say that the individual soldier became useless or dull. Battlefield offered five different classes to choose from, each with their unique specialization to suit the need of any battlefield. The individual soldier, if used correctly could also turn the tide of any battle. The satisfaction of sniping the pilot of an enemy chopper was one of the highlights of this game. You got all this from one single video game.
This brings me to Battlefield: Bad Company 2.
The single player campaign follows the struggle of a four soldier [Marlow, Sarge, Sweetwater and Haggard]squad named Bad Company whose mission is to find and destroy a weapon of mass destruction originally developed by the Japanese during WWII and sought after by the Russians in present time. This game features stunning visuals, specially when you first arrive in Bolivia. Mountain ranges [environment as a whole]look and feel very much alive. Adding to the rich visuals, the game provides one of the riches sound experience I have experience within this genre. From the sound of footsteps on snow to the buzzing mosquito's in the Bolivian jungle, the sound quality is stunning. However this is merely the iceberg.
By the time you finish the campaign you should be familiar with most weapons merely by hearing them being fired. I have learned to distinguish which weapon I am being shot with just by ear. Although the campaign is very linear and the script is not well profound, it is enough to get players engaged from one mission to the next. However what makes the campaign more entertaining is the random conversations amongst the bad company squad. From Haggards knowledge of spanglish to their favorite Terminator scene are some of the few conversations that will have you laughing hysterically as you progress in the campaign.
Unlike its PS2 counterpart this game boast many different weapon types with additional support accessories. Weapons available include a variety of assault rifles, sub machine guns, light machine guns, sniper rifles, pistols, rockets, grenades, C4, to name a few and this are only the weapons you can take with you. Throughout the game you will find many stationary weapons from heavy machine gun emplacements to stationary RPG's. To add to the weapons, the vehicles, the different soldier classes and amazing terrain, [as in the first bad company installment] destructible environment puts this FPS in a league of its own. Anything from houses, shacks, wall, barricades to full scale buildings can be brought down with enough firepower.
The online component would need a review of its own but I will say shortly that is an amazing experience on its own aside from the campaign. A player will be addicted to this game in no time and the multiplayer will keep you coming for more.

This is a way to have fun and relieve some stress as well.
I would recommend this game if you want an all out knock-down,drag-out,shoot-em-up type of game[not for real by the way];this is a good choice if you want to get down and dirty plus lay down the law on your opponents as well.

Battlefield Bad Company 2
The graphics were good and it is a good game. I did like driving the atvs and the tank. Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 however is a much better game in my opinion. It would have been nice to have a coop mode for playing with a friend and a multiplayer mode for battling outside of online action on Bad Company 2.

Buy it and you will not be disappointed
Battlefield 2 was a great game. The action was great, the guns were great and the graphics were very good. This is a fps game and I really enjoyed the way it felt so real while in fire fights.
Story was a little boring and seemed odd to me
The campaign single player was a little to short
Multiplayer had way to many flaws imo
