R6V2 or BF:BC?

#1 Posted by Djrocks (93 posts) -
Well I'm getting ready to get a new  Xbox360 (after trading it in for a ps3). I was looking at a list of games I haven't fully played yet and I narrowed it down to two games. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Battlefield Bad Company. I'm a huge can of nice technical shooting and if I get R6V2 it will be my second time trying a game like that (the first was on gamecube). Then again I love Dice and Battlefield 2 was great experience (even though 2142 made me almost cry in shame), after playing the demo of Bad company it looks like the true susccesor to Battlefield 2. I can't pick both, and I have no idea what to pick. I just need something that can really hold me down for awhile. I would like to know how many maps each game has and how lively the game is online. Thanks.

I think R6V2 is the most well-balanced game overall, but BF:BC can be a lot more fun if the spawn camping doesn't get too out of hand. I would personally recommend R6V2, but know that it really isn't a high recommendation.

BF:BC, I played both the R6V games, and I think BC is much more enjoyable.

BF:BC is possibly more fun but I got bored of it quicker than I did with R6v2, so go figure.

BF:BC for sure, R6V2 wasnt that good as the 1st one, BF:BC was fun and hilarious

I loved the first RSV, but the second one didn't do anything for me. Battlefield:BC is a lot more fun IMO.

If you've never played Rainbow Six Vegas then get the sequel. If you already played the original get Battlefield

Play the demo of Bad Company to see if you like it, if you don't get RSV2. Although RSV2 is more recycled than new content so if you did play the first one, no large reason to play the second one.

I never played the first one before, story doesn't bother me much since I'm just thinking about both of the games for the online content.

Rainbow Six, I personally found both the single player and multiplayer much more enjoyable, and with co-op and terrorist hunt you can't really go wrong. BF:BC is awfully fun too though.

I've put a ton of hours into Rainbow Six: Vegas 2, and I've played Bad Company for a bit, and I have to recommend Bad Company over Vegas 2, its just more fun, and a better bang for your buck if you ask me.

Well i only bought RSV1 and i didn't really like it at all, BF:BC would be my choice

#15 Posted by Taalon (112 posts) -

Both are good, but I prefer Battlefield: Bad Company.

#16 Posted by TullyAckland (237 posts) -

Bad company is the better game in my opinion, tbh i saw hardly any differance between the 2 vegas games. Thats not to say it was bad, but its multiplayer got old fast for me.

Bad company

Since IMO R6V2 is like an upgrade more then a sequel, I would say BFBC.

#19 Posted by MAV3R1CK (125 posts) -

Rainbow SIx Vegas 2. I play both and I think that RSV2 had a lot of more replay value and different multiplayer modes. Battlefield had only 1 mode as of today, but they will add the mode Conquest later on through software update/

I thought the first Rainbow Six Vegas was a lot better than the sequel. Bad Company is a good game, very refreshing and definitely worth the buy.

#21 Posted by Brickz187 (6 posts) -

Rainbowsix Vegas 2 is better then Bad Company IMO. If you dont have any friends to play with, the online will be pointless. No one ever talks and there is never much teamwork involoved. Bad Compnay is fun though, just I prefer RSV2

#22 Posted by BlindEffekt (917 posts) -

There both extremely good games, but for CQC go R6V2. Or if you want ranged free battles Go BFBC.

BAD COMPANY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

I own both....just so you know I'm not some stupid fanboy (though if you look at my posts, you can clearly see that I'm a Halo and Bad Company Fanboy).....I think BC is better...I guess that's all I have to say.

#24 Posted by JoeyIA (662 posts) -

I like R6 better as a game but lots of the people playing it are jerks, where most of the people playing BC are alright.  I'd also recommend Cod4, I didn't like 2 or 3 at all but 4 is really good and the people online have been pretty cool too.  I only played 4 because everyone I work with has it, otherwise I would have never given it a shot.

#25 Posted by natsfan7 (56 posts) -

Games you should get (if you can)-
1-Halo 3
2-Gears of War
3-Call of Duty 4
4-Battlefield: Bad Company
5-Viva Pinata

#26 Posted by BlindEffekt (917 posts) -

Why would you put halo up top?

#27 Posted by JJGIANT (755 posts) -

RB6 is better

#28 Posted by Forzen (89 posts) -

Well I'm currently playing Battlefield BC and loving it. I played the original Vegas and it was excellent but from what reviews and friends say the second isn't as good so I would go for Battlefield if I were in your position.

#29 Posted by LightYagami245 (1117 posts) -

I say R6V2.

#32 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

Go with Bad Company. My favorite, hands down.

#33 Posted by Nibbz (203 posts) -

bad company.

#34 Posted by shadowjak (456 posts) -

R6V2, more tactical.

#35 Posted by RebornNinja (6 posts) -

I would go with BF:BC......

#36 Posted by mrhankey (695 posts) -

BF: Bad Company

#37 Posted by NinjaMunkey (204 posts) -

Rainbow six vegas 2 is a very good game, the SO will be better, but the multiplayer is not amazing, which is where BFBC shines.

#38 Posted by JJGIANT (755 posts) -

definately rbv2

It is my favorite game for the 360 so far........If you think COD4 (or whatever game you really like) should be on top, then fine, cause it's your opinion!
