Really disappointing to not see any of this at E3
This reminds me to get the first one, its $20 now
Personally I thought the SP in BC was fairly average at best, and the thing that made it good was the MP.
The biggest problem by far was lack of maps and only ONE game type, which although fun did get very old.
It was a good effort, but never more than a 7.5 / 10 for me. Hopefully this will address some of those issues.
What's with GB's obsession with Bad Copany single player? It sucked, it was really dull and just felt like an empty generic experience. The great MP mode is what Bad Company was all about, the single player was an after thought, jeez. Hopefully the next game will be even more focused on the multiplayer.
This may actually be interesting. I wanna get it for PC.
The destructibility of BF: Bad Company felt satisfying and yet it was lacking in other areas of the game. Map and game type variety was my biggest complaint of the first game which kept me away for a long while and instead played COD4 most of the time. I'm glad they addressed that and will spice things up, so to speak, for BC2. As for quad vehicles, it'll be interesting, as a sniper, to get to a decent position quicker, or to perform a quick plant. It'll certainly force people to hustle a little more from time to time.
I'll definitely keep an eye on BC2 for sure. This video perked my interest a little more.
Correction: That is not a tank... It is a APC (Armored Personel Carrier)/ Armored Car
Could not care one bit about BC2.
BC had awesome multiplayer. At one point it was actually in danger of stopping me playing Call of Duty 4 but let's face it only MW2 is going to be able to do that.
I think I might rebuy the first after reading and watching videos about this game
Great!! Looking forward to see more at E3
bad feeling about bad company 2 from this interview honestly
If they really improve everything in mp and sp(I know, they won't)the game will be a dominator. My one fear is that they will take some resources away from the sp, and try to emphasize the mp too much. I just really enjoyed the sp in BBC...it was such a light year improvement from the older BF games. Also, if they do not improve the ability to squad up with friends and STAY together, my fun w/the mp will be short lived just like it was w/BBC.
Could not care one bit about BC2.
he didnt ask how clean it smelled :(
It sounds silly, but one thing I loved about the original is the sound effects. The sounds of the weapons were the best I've heard in any game.
How about being able to completely annihilate a building, instead of just getting it down to their foundations?
Make the feeling of the guns more flexible and less chuggy.
Make the guns smaller looking. They take up the whole fucking screen.
Team killing is constant in BF: BC's multiplayer, especially in close range combat.
More concentration on accuracy and less on spray'n pray.
Keep the humor.
Please DICE, don't change the game too much, because as it stands, BC1 ispretty much perfect. I just finished a 6 hour marathon of Gold Rush before I saw this story. Every time you play you experience something awesome and new. 8500+ kills and still loving it.
At the moment, I love playing the offensive sniper. Move quickly from cover to cover. Playing a favorable angle. Carefully approaching the crates. Hopefully having some useful squadmates using me as a spawnpoint. In throwing range of the crates, uncovering all enemy activity and going for it. Then a swift retreat to a tactically superior spot (it's all about angles you know) to snipe people trying to disarm the explosives. It's even better, if some squadmate goes in for the arming of the crate. Good soldiers always play an angle. Favorably with sight on the crates. For the frakkin' win!
350 hours is insane dedication. I only got around 100 hours and haven't played all year. Focused on support for a long time, then messed with the recon with the infantry scanner + knife combo. People hate a knife rapist, that's for sure.
Battlefield 2 had persistent statistics and unlockables. If anything, Call of Duty 4's persistence online took cues from Battlefield 2.
I definitely hope there is a multiplayer beta signup. Not sure if I'm getting it for PC or 360... depends on what friends get or if PC has extras.
Taking a cue from the wildly popular multiplayer in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Bad Company 2 will have some persistence online, with certain weapons and perks being awarded based your performance in the game.Battlefield did this long before Call of Duty ever did. My how people are so quick to forget.
Bad Company was a great game, but unfortunately suffered from some pretty major graphical problems. Massive screen-tear, over-use of grain effects to name but two.Is v-sync that much of an issue? I didn't notice it much at all. And grain noise effect was no worse than the one used on the video in this article. Not nearly as bad as the L4D default. Though I do think that all games that use a grain filter should have an adjustment bar in the options.
Oooh, was that gameplay footage reflecting off of the fish tank?
Anyway, nice interview Ryan. I can't wait for this game
I thought the first one was pretty damn fun,BC2 looks like itll be a step up in all areas of the game
Nah, the multiplayer was still the best part about BC imo. I still play it today. Don't get me wrong, the campaign was fun and better than most shooters but come on, it's a BF game!! :)

I still love and play bc, it looks like their fixing all the key problems in the first one, finally.
one thing that i liked about the first game was the humor, so we'll see how this one come out for me

Hopefully, Dice have left their lesson from the first.
"Taking a cue from the wildly popular multiplayer in Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Bad Company 2 will have some persistence online, with certain weapons and perks being awarded based your performance in the game."
Isn't it more accurate to say that COD4 took a cue from Battlefield 2? That game had persistent weapon unlocks nearly four years ago. In any case, the original Bad Company had this as well.
Can't wait for BC2
For a second there, I thought RUSH was where you get to play in a Three-Man Band.
Oh well, the alternative sounds aight. Can't wait for this game!
Being a fan of Battlefield since the early days of 1942 I was a bit sceptical of the first Bad Company and its Single Player focus. However I was wrong and enjoyed the game a great deal. I like how Dice are keeping quiet on the SP storyline just now.
Looking forward to checking this out in 2010.
Great interview, I plan on picking this game up, I've been enjoying the first one since launch.
Thats an awful long time to wait for this game, with any luck I'll have a job by then as well. Then it will matter to me what games are being released. Thats assuming that it gets released in Europe early 2010, so it might be even longer.
Aww man. I want to play it this year!
cool i liked the first one alot so this is a buy for me
