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.
