I'm finding the campaign to be good fun so far...I'm only a few levels in, but it has a great opening level, and the subsequent levels have some cool epic explosions and hectic firefights.  There's a little bit too much "on-rails" stuff so far, but that's my only complaint, and its a small one.

I do, and since the campaign was the only reason I liked the first one, I won't be buying Bad Company 2.

All my favourite games get 4 (Fallout 3, BF 1943, Borderlands) so I guess that must mean this is awesome?! A bit weird that MW2 got a 5 though when that also had a flawed single player campaign and a weaker multiplayer than BC2 (in my opinion) maybe spec-ops saved it? Personally not my cup of tea.

When was this? You said 5/5 in a comment on the MAG review. "
Wow, somebody has a good memory (I didn't even remember saying that at first).  Anyways, I voted 4 in a "what do you think Jeff will give it" thread after hearing the campaign wasn't too hot. That 5/5 comment came from me being surprised by Jeff giving MAG ( a game which he didn't seem to like all that much) a 4.

First BC campaign was mediocre at best and the characterisation and dialogue was tired and unfunny. 
 
Luckily I don't play Battlefield games for their story arcs or "witty" jibes from it's characters during the campaign. Multiplayer all the way.
 
And Squad Rush is available to all non-Americans from day one.

Great review! 
 
What if it did not have a single player part but was just like MAG? How would it compare to that? I would love to see some thoughts on that subject.

Thanks for the review Jeff!

Good review. I mostly agree with all of it.

It's because you know how reviews work.  With average singleplayer, you're not allowed to give it 5/5   :)

Don't forget to set the audio to the WAR TAPES setting.  Makes a world of difference and really puts you into the action.  Awesome game.

I loved the campaign of the first one so much for the characters. Looks like imma be doing a hella lot of standing around then to enjoy this one. Tis a shame. The end of the first one made me enjoy BFBC the way I did too.

Great review.  
 
I hope the Bad Company 2 multiplayer gets more attention than the first game's did.  It's so well balanced and fun.

Worth a purchase, then.

Good review, I could never understand your views on the first game's single player... I would however prefer a more refined version of that, than what they seem to have produced.
 
But this is BF, im in it for the MP!

Basically. The team of Jeff defenders, MW2 lovers and the 'stars mean nothing' duders will all unite and make a destructive force.

I called it.  Great multiplayer + so-so single player - coop = 4 stars.

Damn, this is definitely a get for me, then

I felt the single player portion of the first BC was very bland and served only as a tutorial for the multiplayer, so I am very surprised by Jeff's fond memories of it.

Great review Jeff. Might pick this game up later if I get the chance.

Nice review.  Usually I don't skip the single player of any shooter but this review totally validates my decision of skipping the campaign.

There are going to be a hell of a lot of MW2 haters who are going to rip this review apart.

@Venatio: 4 makes sense.

Hmm, 4 stars? Expected 5
