i like the beta on ps3, but it's hard to find good or coordinated teams...

Oh snap, son! This is da new hawtness and what not, yo!

As tired as this comparison may sound to some people, I'm really interested in how this stacks up against MW2.  As a console player, the dedicated server issue doesn't really affect me, so it's the rest of the two packages that are being compared in my mind.

Ah this is a good Quick Look, I didn't expect it. I would like to get a code for this soon but this video will do.

Posted by ProjektGill

I'm loving this beta so far if only because this is the only FPS my friend has and sometimes you need a break from sports games.

Posted by Blair

I'm quite pleased with this.

Posted by misterpope

Always liked Battlefield. This looks good. 
Posted by mrsmiley

hmmm... graphics look great, but the game looks frustrating. maybe it's just cuz the iron sights are ridiculously small, and because jeff doesn't know how to crouch or site for enemies. :P

At about 11:00 Jeff says that the vehicles are all first person but I'm pretty sure if you press up on the D-pad it goes into third person.

Hahaha there so bad <3 oh well. Can't wait for this.

Posted by BenderUnit22

Played some of the beta, but I'm not a fan of either vehicles or sniping, so my "run around and look for dudes" play style was getting me killed left and right. Too bad, I remember playing the BF1942 expansion demo for weeks, but as it is, I'd rather just play Modern Warfare 2 or Uncharted 2.

I want to get into the beta soo bad.

Poor Jeff, he was getting messed up.

Defense is far easier than attacking in BF:BC.

Spawning in the sniper's nest was the best thing in this video. 
 
"What up dudes!?" *BLAM*

Yup I'm surprised he didn't know this but that's typical for the lack of care many people in the media have for this game, espcially compared to Modern Mehfare 2

Hmm...


I think I prefer Modern Warfare 2 over this. I like smaller maps, and the environments seem less detailed in bad company 2.

Posted by SilvaTone

why isn't this for xbox 360 too  ? wtf

Posted by Vinchenzo

Looks alright, but I think I personally prefer MW2 though.

Holy shit man, you just stumbled unto a goldmine. I should run to the patent office right now but I'll have to kill your first to make sure you're not going to sue or something.

He gave the first game 5*s. I doubt hes taking this like he would a normal shooter.

Awesome.

Posted by Vorbis

MW2 is definitly a modern arena game where as battlefield is more of a sandbox. Have always loved BF but never tried BC1, the destructable stuff looks alot of fun.

true, pity it was for all the wrong reasons. He gave it 5 stars because he thought the multiplayer tutorial (or should I say single player game, if you can call that dry, boring mess a sp campaign) was awesome, and he didn't log much hours into what made the game the awesome game that it is - the multiplayer mode

So many Quick Looks this week, this is why i love this site.

It's not? That's weird, I always asumed the Beta was available for the 360 too. Must be some kind of deal behind the scenes or something.
Posted by Blackout62

Ohh, I need to know what 90s' movie Bad Company will be ripping off this time.

Still prefer MW2 after playing the beta. Still going to buy it, but it is obvious that it hasn't changed much at all, just like most sequels. Game probably won't last long on the consoles (evident by the people who aren't playing Bad Company now) so the obvious choice will be for the PC, since there are so many butt-hurt PC gamers who will play it to try and spite IW. Too bad IW is swimming in their pool full of money to even care.

i got this beta, then my 360's usb wifi fucked up and got MW2 for ps3 the day after i got Bad Company 2 beta. I would rather play MW2, but the beta was fun....1 level just gets old fast though

Posted by OmegaPirate

i have no sound from this video 
 
Weird

Posted by Krenor

I'm in the beta as well, while the graphics are awful the game is fun as a battlefield game should be

Posted by johnlennon

I've had this beta for about a week now, the only problem I've had so far is how you can't one hit kill someone with a sniper, even if you shoot them square at the head. Then you have to zoom out and reload, then zoom back in (which at that point they would already be in cover and avoid you).

Posted by HatKing

Looks interesting, I got into the first game's BETA but didn't really play it.  I did enjoy the story mode in the first one too... maybe I'll check this out.
Posted by Boiglenoight

Played the beta a great deal.  It's Battlefield Bad Company with a lot of polish.  If you passed on the first game, this one's a lot better to start with far as multiplayer is concerned.  More acute focus on squad / teamplay, if you're in a group that's working together you can roll the other team if they don't have a comparable squad on their side.  
 
Like what others are saying, it's not Modern Warfare.  It's a sandbox where MW is an arena style military shooter.  Also, tanks.

Can't wait for this game!

 What are you saying? Loads of people play Bad Company on the 360...
Posted by Druminator

Can't wait for this. The destruction looks way better this time. One thing BF has always done better than any FPS, is spawning.

British / American stuff comes up way too much in these videos... 
*cough* it's pronounced Chih-LEE and bay-tah, like day-tah!! Bloody yanks etc. etc.

Edited by MeatSim

They got rid of the specialist class, my favorite class so right now I am in a screw this game mentality.
More Oscar Mike is a good thing though.

Posted by Crashews

The main menu background in this beta (and the tone of the first game overall) evokes some serious "Three Kings" for me.  This is a good thing.

Posted by CL60

Jeff really sucks at this game :P

Posted by MetalGearSunny

Looks great. Can't wait!
