I hope so. I really didn't enjoy the campaign in the first one. In fact, I didn't even finish it. I hope that I pop this in on release day and have a single player ride that does what MW2's single player campaign failed at.

Some games should just give up on the concept of "single player campaign". This is one of those.

I take it this means no driving tanks around on a golf course this time.

Pity they've taken the main difference between the two series, Humor,  an irreverent tone, and a focus on the whole "they ain't anything special, just a bunch of guys over they're heads" motif; the things that made Bad Company BAD COMPANY; and CHUCKED them to the curb.  What you end up with is a semi-class based "relistic" multiplayer focused shooter that looks a WHOLE FUCKING LOT like MW2 in all respects save for the guns, location, and characters.

Looks are completely different than experience.

Especially well done editing Vinny and/or Drew. The editing is always good but for some reason I really noticed in this video.

Good lord, that's a lot of sweat.

No, I will not let the newbies CHILL OUT.

At least the locations are more based around the plot.

What the dude says in the interview directly contracts some of what you say (ie the focus on the characters) 
and they haven't actually shown anything from the single player at this point, so I'm not sure what makes you think you can make claims about whether or not it feels like Bad Company.
 
Do go right ahead and get angry at me about it anyway, though.
 
Edit: I also played the BC2 beta and can tell you that the game handles nothing like MW2. At all. It plays like a Battlefield game and nobody could mistake it for anything else.

Always the Russians. Nobody ever picks a fight with China anymore.

Looks kind of like MW2. . . except it's going to actually be good.

Well, this is obviously superior to MW2 since it will have dedicated servers on the PC.
 
I'm quite serious.

@9mmfistcuffs:
How the hell is this a Modern Warfare clone exactly? I fail to see your point
Edited by 9mmfistcuffs

I swear the more I see of Bad Company 2 the less I want it. Way to take everything GOOD and DIFFERENT from the first game, throw it out, and turn it into a Modern Warefare 2 clone.    Absolutely Pathetic.

Posted by Agent47CSim2

I'm really, really looking forward to this. Possible first day buy.

Not really digging this "serious tone" business. There are plenty of serious FPS games out there. The biggest part of Bad Company 2's charm was it's goofy nature and if you take that away, it's just Battlefield. Not that there is anything particularly wrong with that...

Posted by Milpool

Snow levels... South America levels... War coming to American homefront... must... not... make... MW2 reference....   AAAAAAAAAAA
Posted by Adziboy

Sweet. I still play the first one to this day, and multiplayer is still one of my favourites. Everything was quality, especially the sound and this one sounds and looks even better.  
 
Hardcore sounds interesting if not all too similar to what everyone else is thinking of, but who cares? At least it's in there, because I did sometimes get frustrated at 2 hit sniper kills and people who seemed to soak up bullets. 
 
Graphics look vastly better, and I cannot wait to see what the gameplay is like. Most anticapated game of 2010 so far. (Oh, 'cept Heavy Rain, possibly God of War, and MAG is along the same lines);

Yo Ryan I'ma let you finish, but Brad Shoemaker has the best interviews of all time!

Hardcore mode...thats a pleasant surprise.  If its done well it can mean a lot of success for this game.

Posted by Hashbrowns

Each time I think the current generation of consoles has gone as far as it can, there are games like this that still surprise and impress.
Posted by DrinkBourbon

I couldn't put down the beta when that was still going. Very excited for this game, although it sounds like I should probably get myself a copy of the first game and beat the campaign before March 2nd. 

Posted by Gspoon

 My game plan for about 6 months.
 
Mass Effect 2,Bad Company 2, and God of War 3

Posted by mano521

they have hardcore modes? thats good i guess. i hope the regular mode is the same as it was in badcompany 1 though.  i dont mind if they make a hardcore mode wth no hud and more weapon damage, but dont change how the original was in the non hardcore modes 
 
cant fuckin wait for this game :D

Already pre-ordered it on Steam. Have really high hopes for this game.

All the footage is from the 360 version and it still looks amazing. This game has sleeper hit written all over it.

Posted by MasterOfPenguins_Zell

I loved the first games single-player. Can't wait to jump into this campaign.

...Bad Company 2 has a single-player?

Looks awesome!
