    I've finished the single player recently and its great also multiplayer is good but could have been great if there was more modes.

    For now ive done the single player on normal and im on the last mission on hard really enjoyable so far. As for the multiplayer i find it good enough lacks a few things the pc version have when it comes to game modes but that will be sorted soon.

    It was good, but somehow, 2 weeks later after owning it, I haven't played it. Don't know why.

    Singleplayer is decent at best due to the bizarrely designed AI, checkpoints and health system. Essentially it encourages the tactic of using no tactics whatsoever. Which is ass backwards in a game that's supposed to be about freeform combat. Other than this major flaw it's pretty good though. Could've been much, much better.

    Multiplayer is great fun on the other hand. Despite its flaws.

    I borrowed it from a friend. I had mixed reactions...the multiplayer is fun, and the gold rush is a nice addition, but the single player kinda bored me after a while.
    I finished it two times just for the achievements though.

    Its great, but the multiplayer experience varies from great to awful. Often your team just run around looking for kills while the gold crate is being destroyed and that seriously gets under my skin.

    The artillery rushes are completely retarded aswell, constant team killing to get on it.

    I picked a used copy of the game even though I wasn't too impressed with the beta/demo. In a few days I ended up returning it because I just wasn't feeling it. The SP is fun, but playing it through it just makes me wish it was co-op and the teammates "writing" is ridiculous, but at least it's not bad enough to take away from the game.

    My real issue is with MP because it has the same issues that all Battlefield games have, like spawn-camping. But everything seems worse in this game. When I can start up the game and join a random MP match and die in under a second (without any chance) ...there's something wrong. This happened to me over half of the time and it just took away from any fun I may have...

    I bought it. I beat the single-player in short sittings over the span of two days. I played a little of the multiplayer. I wrote a review of it and that would be great if some people would check it out.

    I played multiplayer a ton for the first week, but now I haven't touched it for days. I've been waiting for that new game mode to come out. I haven't completed single player yet just because I've been too lazy.

    Love BC. Bought it primarily for multi-player but it turned out having a good single-player campaign so I can't complain =)

    Just got the game, started on hard. But i think ill end up playing medium. My first impressions on the multiplayer are ok. Id probably rather play halo or cod though. Because my level is higher and im more familar. Well see.

    I started playing this game with an open mind, not expecting anything from it, and wow I was impressed! The Single Player is fun... On medium, I think Hard can wait until my next play through. The Multiplayer is a nice refresh from COD4 and Halo 3, and although there is only one gametype they are adding another one soon. All in all this has to be one of my most unexpectedly loved games this year, besides Earth Defense Force 2017 that is.

    Got this game last week and am loving every second of it.  The single player is captivating and the multiplayer is BF2 on console.  Only complaint is the Turret like AI.

    It is a good game.  I thought the review gave a bit too much praise, blowing stuff up is neat, but not exactly a huge change in the gameplay, also the game has some bugs and quirks that come into play that didn't get any mention in the review.    I wrote up my own review in there and posted it.

    It is a solid rental, but yeah if I had it to do over again I'd do a rental or a price drop.

    Multiplayer is ridiculous at times, but it's fun. Surprisingly, I think Battlefield 1943 is better.

    This isn't the developer DICE's forums. And the reason that happens is because there are a limited number of spawn points that dedicated players eventually learn and often camp. It will probably be fixed in BC2 like in BF Heroes -- you parachute in toward the middle of the map once the enemy begins camping your home base.
