Don't think its COD, its not, its bad company!
on 8 October 2008
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.
