Battlefield: Bad Company (Xbox 360) Review

Set in the near future, the Battlefield: Bad Company single-player campaign drops gamers into a dramatic Eurasian conflict. As part of a squad of four soldiers, players risk it all to go AWOL on a personal quest, fighting their own war within the war. Featuring a dramatic storyline flavored with attitude, Battlefield: Bad Company leads gamers far from the traditional frontlines on a wild ride with a group of renegade soldiers who decide that sometimes the gratitude of a nation just isn't enough.

The Battlefield: Bad Company cinematic single-player experience captures the freedom and intensity of the franchise's legendary multiplayer sandbox game play in a dynamic world where nearly everything is destructible. Gamers have total freedom to be daring and innovative, adapting to and tackling challenges in unexpected "Battlefield-style" ways. Create sniping positions by blowing out a piece of a wall or drive your tank straight through a small house. The ever-changing battlefield forces players, their teammates and enemies to react accordingly.

The game also features a full suite of the franchise's trademark multiplayer game play, supporting 24 players online.

Battlefield: Bad Company is the first game built from the ground up for next-generation consoles using DICE's bleeding-edge Frostbite game engine, delivering unrivaled graphics, effects and game play.

Platform for Display: Xbox 360Edition: Standard Edition won't let me.

BFBC is a brilliant game and let nobody tell you it's not. It's not perfect, but contrary to the popular belief niether is COD4. What's amazing about this game?

-The stand-out moments here aren't the same as COD's. You create your own here so they also won't be the same as EVERYONE else's.

-Destructive environments allow you to be creative with the way you attack situations and this really is SO much fun.

-Destructive environments also means that replaying scenarios is infinately less tedious. Playing COD again is good but this will be a riot on the third go.

Weapons and Sound - Again variety is the key. So many weapons to try out and the sound - modelled in real-time - is amazing!

What sucks?

- It seem that if you include destructive environments you HAVE to put explosive barrels EVERWHERE. I don't blame DICE for wanting to showcase this as much as possible but I think they should have been little more frugle with the placement of explosives.

- The health system is WAY to forgiving. Being able to jab yourself with a needle every 10 seconds and get 100% health back makes the first half of the game far too easy.

- Eagle eyed enemies! You wouldn't need the health system to be forgiving if the bad guys couldn't see you through trees! This is very annoying. You do spend a LOT of time trying to find guys that you can see on the radar with no trouble.

Definately more good than bad - showcase by the fact that I've spent the majority of my waking hours playing it since I got it last Friday, and will definately be giving at least a second run through!

This game is great as long as you don't try to compare it to COD 4.

COD 4 is serious and trying to get the gamer gripped into a situation.

Bad Company is a much more relaxed, fluid game. The controls are still easy but the emphasis is more on fun and blowing stuff up rather than dramatic music killing a world menace.

Your NPC comrades are great fun, all taking advantage of stereotypes. You have a computer nerd with specs, a sarg with attitude and a hill billy, red neck who has some of the funniest lines of dialogue I've come across. I was actually laughing at some of his comments during the game, which is rare " i've got this cousin who's got a great voice but a face like a can of dog food!" All the while buildings are collapsing around you.

The game AI is not super intelligent and sometimes it seems a bit ridiculous when it takes 2/3 of a clip to kill one guy but at the same time they don't walk though walls like other games.

The destructive element of this game is excellent, you are actively encouraged not to use doors to enter houses, "just blow a hole and make your own.

Overall, the whole idea behind this game is too have a laugh. Its a great red neck adventure.

I wish i had brought it on release as the multi player is excellent.

Bad company is a brilliant game. The single player aspect isn't spectacular, but the multiplayer is something else. So to start off, the battlefied franchise has never been well known for it's single player campaigns. This is the first one to incorporate a real story and it's not done too badly. I think it introduces you to the controls, damage systems and the gadgets of the game quite well, but to be honest, I wouldn't buy it for the single player alone.

One thing I will quickly go into is the new frostbite engine, allowing you to blow up pretty much anything. This system is great.. the 'novelty' of it all wears off pretty quickly, but once you sink your teeth into the online mode it becomes second nature and seems hard and annoying to imagine a game where you can't just blow up the wall to get the guy who just ran in. It's not 'groundbreaking' but it's a lot of fun and very very useful online.

So the main part of this review then is the multiplayer. I'm a big fan of Call of Duty 4 but I truly think this is, dispite it's niggles, a lot more fun. There's not a lot of modern online shooters that are good for the new generation of consoles, so I'd say the current competition is between this and call of duty. But Call of Duty is simply nothing like this, whilst it concentrates on fast and furious gunplay, bad company is a bigger package. Although at time of release there is only one game mode and 8 maps, the mode simply doesn't get boring and the maps are massive, all lots of fun and contain a lot of variety within each one.

You will be able to drive jeeps, tanks, boats and helicopters. These vehicles all behave nicely enough and when used correctly can be devestating. But the great thing about this game is the balance between all of the classes, vehicles and weapons.

The USP of this game is, of course, the destructibility of its environments. While this may seem gimmicky at first, it does play a tactical role in the game. For example; pinned down in an urban environment? Rather than brave the streets (and inevitably be gunned down) blow holes in the walls and make your own way through the sides of buildings and flank the enemy. Genius, and great fun. Also of great use is the ability to call in mortar strikes (similar to the airstrike on COD4, but rather than being restricted to 10 uses and only on 1 level, in BC it's unlimited) to clear out hard targets.

Downsides are; because you respawn with any enemies killed staying dead (rather than in most games where when you die, enemies respawn too) tactics are largely irrelevant - you can simply play it like a war of attrition, as a one man kamikaze army. Also, in terms of weapons, while they sound brilliant (better than any other game I can think of) you will probably end up playing the majority of the game with an AK (with or without grenade launcher) as they are plentiful, and there is little benefit in experimenting with other weapons. Occasionally a sniper rifle is useful, but that's about it. It gets a bit dull in that sense.

In conclusion, while COD4 is a better game (objectively, in terms of pulling you in and engrossing you in the story) after you've played BC you will sorely miss the ability to destroy your surroundings, and hiding behind indestructible cover while bullets bounce of it, now feels ridiculous and highly unrealistic.

At £15, this is a MUST BUY for FPS fans.
