Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Review

 I have been a fan of the Battlefield series since the very beginning and this is an amazing edition. The multiplayer is basically what I asked for in a Battlefield game. Which is war-like combat on a huge map, scattered with  vehicles, and just that old school Battlefield feel. It really brought me back to those old days from Battlefield 2 for PC. In this they brought back the conquest mode which is basically when the map is covered with 3-5 points that your team needs to capture and hold. It is the most basic mode in the Battlefield series. They also have rush which is the mode from Bad Company 1 where there is 2 bomb sites and an offense who blows up the bomb and a defense who defends the bomb. There are two new modes which are squad rush and squad death match. Squad rush is just rush with 4 on 4 instead of the normal 12 on 12. Squad death match is a 4 v 4 v 4 v 4 showdown for who's team can get to 50 first. I usually only stick to rush and conquest and sometimes squad death match but I probably wont be playing squad rush anytime soon. Dice really did raise the bar here on the multiplayer and it exceeds the first game by a lot. As far as the single player, story is a bit dry and I find myself lost in exactly how the story is progressing or what I 'am doing in the big scheme of things. Other than that the visuals are amazing and everything looks so nice. Stunning environments and I think they perfected the destruction. Overall it is a great game.   The only hangup I have is when a conquest game is ending they start to blare this annoying horn sound, they needs to be gone in the next update.

I actually recommended the Toy Soldiers review you did, and though both reviews are equal in length, you do a good job of capturing what Toy Soliders is quickly and effieciently. It's always nice to read a more elaborate review, but for an arcade title that's pretty one dimensional - heck , it's got what...5 or 6 things in total you can buy? - I felt it was sufficient. 
 
Here though, anyone trying to gauge what BBC2 is won't really be able to tell because you don't tell them a whole lot. What's conquest? What did you ask for in multiplayer? Etc...
 
Maybe you're not trying to elaborate, and if so I apologize, just trying to provide constructive criticism.

That's good improvement man. Well done. Now hopefully people can get a better sense of what the game is like and how you view it.
 
Easy changes that make a big difference, good on you.

    The Best Multiplayer Experience 0

    Bad Company 2 provides the  best multiplayer experience currently on the consoles. I think it betters every other serious FPS on console: COD:MW2, HALO, MAG etc.    I didnt play BC1 but was always a fan of the series on the PC and I still play Battlefield 2. I was abit skeptical about DICE's new outing on the consoles but it seems my fears were unfounded as the game has blown me away. While it doesnt match the scale of previous installments with only 24 players, but it matches and even surpasses...
