The lights are on
I have been a fan of the Battlefield series ever since Battlefield 2 came out for the PC. Battlefield Bad Company 2 is the second Battlefield to have a story, which is actually pretty good for a game that is multiplayer focused. The multiplayer is what really shines on Bad Company 2.
Bad Company 2 starts off a little while after the events of Bad Company 1. The squad is sent in to find a man that could help stop the development of a powerful bomb. The story is a typical story, but the gameplay is what is fun about the game. The controls take a little getting used to if the player is used to the Call of Duty series, but I prefer BC2's controls. The movement of the character is more fluid and fast compared to most shooters on the console. When the player shoots an enemy it does not take much to kill, usually two or three bullets at the most. This does not make the game easier however because the character you play does not take as much damage as on most shooters. One feature that stands out on BC2 is the destructible environments. On BC2 if you are taking cover behind a wall to not expect it to protect you for long. The bullets will rip the wall apart. Also rockets and grenades will blow up the wall instantly kill any player behind it. This feature is helpful against campers on multiplayer.
Multiplayer is some of the best I have seen. The weapons feel powerful and have a bit of weight to them. When a player sees another player the player that shoots first usually wins the battle. The player does not have to worry about shooter another player and that player turning around an kill you because of getting shot by a shotgun. I prefer playing the multiplayer on the hardcore mode. On this mode you no longer have the ammo counter, radar, and crooshairs on screen. Plus on hardcore it only takes a couple bullets to take the enemy down. The multiplayer is also intensified by the fact that the game handles 24 players and has vehicles like tanks and helicopters on large maps.
I recommend this game to any one who like more hardcore type of shooters and a more realistic feel to the controls and gameplay.
