EA's attempt at another shooter, BC, was well intended. The controls were good but your character's movements aren't as versatile as in other shooters. Graphics are fine, not bad, not great. Sound is good. Accurate sound effects for weapon fire.
This game is all about the plot. They didn't diversify the levels. Every mission feels the same. You run towards the triangle on your map, shooting enemies along the way, blowing up buildings, checking rooms, picking up weapons, blow some armored vehicles up, meet at the red smoke. The dialog is ok, but gets repetitive for example, "I'd hate to see you on a bad day."
I found myself feeling like I was playing for no reason. I wanted to find out the rest of the story, but felt monotony of the levels getting to me.
The good thing is the game as very flexible. You can ride any vehicle, fix vehicles, blow up any wall, and go almost anywhere.
If you like a slightly mindless shooter with some innovative qualities, and don't mind repetition, this game is for you. If you're hoping to get a COD4-like combat experience, don't get your hopes up. Online play is not as fast as COD4, but also has it's innovations.
Bottom line, this game is better the bad, but not great. A must rent because you may love it or hate, depending on the type of player you are. Rent it first, to see if it suits you.

When I put battle field bad company on my game Q, I was truly excited, but when i played the game i was less than satisfied. The graphics are nothing special, and the game play is fairly solid, but through out most of game, YOU DO THE EXACT SAME THING. 75 % of the missions are the exact same thing, and after 15 minutes of the game you will get tired of it. I don't recommend this game to anyone, except people who love doing the same thing throughout an entire game
