When I had this game, noone and I mean NOONE
was playing online. I wonder if the servers were down that day or something.

The single player version of this game looks good.
But if you a Rainbow Six or Metal Gear player, you are going to be frustrated with the controls. You cant take cover on walls in fact, I found myself continuosly dying because there is no way to take any kind of cover. The fact that the walls can be blown up, is fun at first, but it becomes just another thing. note on that.. I put C4 o the back of a tank, and detinated, and it did nothing. While this game might have some good points, if you like Ghost Recon, Rainbow Six, or Call of Duty, this game may just frustrate you .

I just recently was able to have the opportunity to play this game. I have it for both systems too. I was much hoping of the game to be quite good, I didn’t think it was going to be as great as the outcome as it was! The characters are hilarious with what they say throughout the game, different kind of humor, in comparison to Army of Two. Humorous lines & good game play.

I was a little on the shaky side of how well the A.I. would be for co-op play, I was very impressed with the smoothness & not too sensitive response when it came to healing/recovering your characters condition in battle.

Game play is easy to follow, I picked up on the hidden messages throughout the game, there are secrets throughout the game, for those who haven’t played & those that have, now you know, even if you didn’t before hand.

Controls are very simple, that’s my hardest critique of any game I play & rate. Very smooth, not ultra sensitive, just enough to fly thru battle, reload, high five your men in combat & keep on blowing stuff up! It’s a very entertaining, highly fun & addictive in my view. I hope this was helpful. Enjoy!

Bad Company is an extreme short game. Its singleplayer can easily be beaten in less then 2 hours.

This game may be a turn for the better of Battlefield games to come.

Its singleplayer may be short but its a load of fun. Blowing things up and watching the physics work it's eye shattering magic is certainly something to awe at.

The game certainly brings alot of the old weapons, and classic traditions of Battlefield back to both the singleplayer and multiplayer but also adds alot of new stuff. The squad based combat is one of these new things but while sometimes your comrades help you, the majority of the time they are prove to be useless. They just run around and sometimes even get in your way.

The difficulty of the singleplayer game is extremely easy. Health is only a swap of a weapon away. A simple injection will restore yourself to full health and can be used infinitely. The only thing stopping you from constantly doing it is a timed reuse of the injection. But, as long as you have cover - its not hard to wait.

Multiplayer certainly is STILL the main thing going for the new battlefield game. Its still the best thing in the game. Its alot of fun and will keep you entertained for at least a week. It takes on a Call of Duty 4 style of unlocking weapons and leveling up and perfects it.

DICE says for the multiplayer they will be bringing the classic style conquest mode to Bad Company soon which will further increase its life span.

Im not exactly sure if I recommend someone buying this game. I DO recommend you rent it from Gamefly right now. But the life span of the game doesn't exactly justify its $60 price tag. The $45 price tag Gamefly lets you keep it at the time of this writing is certainly a GREAT deal but, whether you should buy it or not is up to you.
