About this product
- Product InformationPlayers 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 "Ultimate Edition" includes the previously download-only multiplayer title Battlefield 1943, and "Onslaught" mode that send waves of enemies at up to four players, the unlocked extras from Battlefield: Bad Company 2 -- Limited Edition, and VIP downloads.

Deeper and more thoughtout than Call of Duty games.
I've been playing first person shooters since Counter Strike 1.5 came out, so I think I have a little knowledge in the genre. The Call of Duty franchise has been beating on the same dead horse for a long time and for some reason... kids still love it!
I'm an enthusiast when it comes to military shooters and my standards are higher. I look for a game with depth, balance and the life span of the game will last longer than 1 year until the sequel comes out. Here comes Battlefield Bad Company 2. This game is more than guns and scoring kills. This game is about team work.
The problem with COD is everyone is out to be number 1 on the scoreboard and thats all. This game is for those who want to work together with players to achieve victory for the team. Class based and more realistic than COD, it might not be for everyone.
With bullet dynamic physics, vehicle warfare, destructible environments and huge open sandbox style maps, this is a game of patience and thought so the learning curve is a little steeper than Call of Duty. The maps are spectacular and DICE Studios is constantly releasing new maps for this game which came out back in March of 2010! (7 map packs thus far and recently an expansion pack was released!) You can't go wrong with a game that has such a dedicated company still supporting it.
The sound FX are amazing too. DICE has incredible audio range technology that really captures the feeling that you're in this world, be it in an open desert or inside a building.
The game modes are a refresher from Call of Duty as well. No more team death match or free for all. Conquest and Rush are the two most commonly played modes (while you can still find plenty of players in the other game modes) that offer lots of good lengthed fun matches.
The list goes on and on for me and others on why BC2 is superior to Call of Duty. If you're into a more realistic military shooter experience (without it being a simulation) than do not hesitate to pick up a copy of this state of the art masterpiece.
See you on the battlefield!Read full review

Just the extras this game comes with are worth the price. It comes with battlefield 1943, onslaught mode and the VIP pass unlocks 7 map packs so far! Couldn't believe all it comes with. Make sure you buy an unopened copy so you know the codes haven't been used.
I wish the game would allow you to turn off swearing like Gears of War, instead I had to resort to turning off dialog all together.
This game is all about the online multiplayer, some of the best online multiplayer ever created! Huge great looking environments that are completely destructible. Blowing up a wall or an entire building becomes part of your strategy. It is objective based, so you are rewarded for having a strategy, and if a team is full of people who camp and snipe, they lose, as they should!

Fun but no COD
The biggest fault with this game is it is not like COD. I became so used to that series that this one seems to fall short. I find it far too slow and cumbersome while playing the multiplayer mode. Also a drawback of buying a used game is that the access codes have been used and to get the full potential of the game you need to buy them online. You very quickly make it more economocal to buy the game new. The game has an interesting and amusing storyline and is generally fun to play, but it is no COD.

Best Game EVER!
This is one of the best games I've ever played, I liked it even more than COD Modern warfare 2! The Graphics are excellent, the story line is even better than the first Bad Co., and the online play is Awesome! EA has always put out a great product and BC2 is one of their best! If you liked Bad Company, you'll love Bad Company 2. If you haven't played either then get them both, you will not be disappointed!
