5.0 out of 5 stars Bad Company aint so bad, 19 Sep 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Battlefield Bad Company 2 - Ultimate Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
This is a good game with fun multiplayer and this edition includes oodles of downloads as well. Let me just say what you get with UE.
- Bad Company 2
- Onslaught Mode
- Battlefield 1943 (a psn game - multiplayer only)
- Limited Edition Unlocks (this includes the M1AA1 thompson assuault rifle and M1911 handgun)
- VIP downloads (not sure what these are)

Bad Company 2 -
Graphics - absolutely outstanding, things look beautiful with serene jungles and gorgeous looking Arctic wastelands. Simply put if you could date this game, you would. The charachters look and move like they would in real life and everything has a nice textures added to it. There is a weird sudden pop-in here and there and the odd glitch but its not too bad. Unfortunatley there are not that many enemy charachters but its forgivable. 9.5/10

Campaign - you fight in a four man squad (who are a bunch of misfits) in a fictional US-russia war. The huge majority of this game takes place in South America and given that its only seven hours long, I was disappointed with that. There a few moments in the levels that stand out in gaming and are amazing to say the least but the majority of time you will spend shooting things. However, it manages to keep it fresh and you can easily play this through 5,6 times to get all the trophies. The background story is to thank for this because the overall plot is interesting and engaging. 9/10

Sound - the music is lovely and adds to the atmopshere with the massive gun sounds which will blind your ears while grenades go off in the backgrounds. the tank sounds a bit defeaned though in both singleplayer and multiplayer and silenced rifles just sounding plain odd. sniper rifles punch a pack and you can hear an enemy footstep creeping up to you. if you have a good pair of headphones you will be delighted 9.5/10

Controls - if you have played MW2 you might take some time getting used to this. R3 is used for crouch and you cant go prone( i found that this stops camping online but i wish theyd include this feature in campaign). they are responsive and reliable. you have unlimited sprint and you jump pretty high. to knife is r2 and to throw a grenade l2, but i would swapped these around because you often get this mixed up. 9/10

Multiplayer:
The obvious big part of the game. Multiplayer is good - the maps are big and varied. It relies heavily on teamwork, with the option to spawn on top of a squad member(s). Its very easy and extremely quick to join a game, it doesnt lag much but when you knife down a door, there is a second delay or when you destroy a building there might be a lag once in a while but considering the graphics and how quick it is to join the game to say thats a major issue is to be whining to say the least. There are four classes you can be, Attacker, Recon, Medic, and Engineer. You can choose the loadout of each class; what guns should be you have,etc. To win a match, a squad must have a balanced selection of the classes.There are four modes:

Squad Deatmatch: the one ive played the most and its very fun. Basically the first squad to get fifty kills win.
Rush: destroy or defend the Mcom stations(there is more than one way to do it).
Conquest: the most difficult to understand of the game modes. basically capture and defend bases for as long as possible.
Squad Rush: a smaller version of Rush.

Overall multiplayer is fun although it will take you a while to get used to it. Cant wait for 'nam. 10/10
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Basically buying BFBC2 for the game itself is a good enough reason. But with this version you get the bonus content as well. A voucher is included in the game to download so make sure you have a psn account.

Onslaught: average to say the least. its alright on easy and odds are you will only play each map once for the trophy. However, take it to hard and its IMPOSSIBLE to complete. I once hit a standard guy with a sniper headshot three times, blew him up twice with an RPG, then knifed him and he was still alive. Its stupidly hard. At best, youll play this once on easy and never again. 6/10
Battlefield 1943: considering the multiplayer depth of BC2 odds are you wont play this as much. its a fun game but for my taste way to complicated. a nice addition anyways 9/10

The rest are little unlocks that feel maybe you shouldnt pay extra for. However, is this the Ultimate Edition of Bad Company 2? Yes, it definitely is
