Battlefield Bad Company 2 was released early on in the year, March to be exact. It had a tough ride between now and then, having to fight off some of the most loved franchises of all time, including yet another sequel in the ever-popular Call of Duty franchise and the revival of Medal of Honour. Luckily, neither of these titles were released In march and Bad Company 2 went on to perform well in the charts.
Of course, this game isn’t going to appeal to everyone; your Gran probably doesn’t find sniping, being a medic, assault class or even an engineer fun. However, what you have to admit is this: The game does cater for a diverse bunch of people, depending on how you want to play it. Constant updates throughout the year have enabled this title to get new people on board with the addition of Co-Op maps and further multiplayer maps. With the thrilling multiplayer it boasts. It had me captivated, begging me to beat those ‘Yanks’ in as many ways as possible. That’s what it’s about, is it not?
You will notice, I haven’t actually talked about the single player yet, that’s not because it’s bad. It’s more of a case that it isn’t “where the action’s at”. Multiplayer is definitely the strong point of this game and kept clawing me back into a match, working as a lone sniper, long into the year. Holding my attention more than the games further down the list. What’s more is the recent release of the Vietnam Map pack; it has re-ignited my love for this brilliant game.
