Replay – Battlefield: Bad Company

by Andrew Reiner on Sep 08, 2017 at 08:00 PM

The arrival of Destiny is the first salvo fired in what we like to call "shooter season," a series of months where most of our gaming time goes to newly released FPS experiences. This year, shooter season consists of new entries for Star Wars Battlefront, Call of Duty, Wolfenstein, and Quake. We also just received a new expansion for Battlefield 1. As great as DICE's support for Battlefield 1 has been, we're still left wanting one more thing. We want more Bad Company.

PC players probably don't hold Bad Company in the highest regard, as the first entry was a console exclusive with a completely different approach to multiplayer, but change ended up being good for Battlefield, especially in terms of storytelling. We take a look at what made Bad Company so special, and discuss why now might be a good time for the series to return in a big way.

We then turn back the clock even more to take a look at another team of "bad" characters on Sega Genesis. You'll even get a tease of the forthcoming Replay Civil War, which replaces Showdown as this year's huge office-wide competition.
