Battlefield Bad Company - Initial Impressions

There is a lot to be said about a game in which you can basically destroy everything that is front of you. Can't find a door into that warehouse? That's ok, just blow a hole into the side of the wall and presto!

You can tell that the developers wanted this to be a much better single player experience than their previous effort and although the campaign story is good, it ain't no GTA4, lets put it that way.

Visually the game looks great and runs at a very nice frame rate, which is very important to me personally.

The problem for me so far is that even on the normal difficulty setting, the AI is ruthless. You pop your head out from around a building, you will get shot within a second, it just doesn't feel realistic, its like they can see you though the walls.

Having played through the first few levels, I decided to restart the 2nd level on Easy, yes I know you may be thinking, well you suck, well maybe I do however trust me, Easy is still a challenge and the AI seems way more realistic. I also recommend you "up" the sensitivity of your weapon slightly for a more precise shooting experience.
