This genre is crowded, and while Call of Duty and Halo may grab the headlines and sales, Bad Company 2 is a nice alternative to the hectic run-and-gun style of Call of Duty and shielded opponents of Halo: Reach. EA is still continuing support with a new pack recently released and a full expansion called Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam. Innovation is what keeps this genre alive and flourishing. DICE studios has done a great job adding new ideas and concepts to the console FPS genre -- it makes some of the changes brought on by the competition seem amateur in comparison. The are many virtual wars to fight, and many virtual opponents to shoot, but Bad Company 2 makes it worth your time to enlist in this crowed FPS market.

Still, there is no other shooter out there that can compare to Battlefield Bad Company 2. Although it has some issues I can honestly say that this is the best shooter I have played in years. Better than Modern Warfare? Well, that is a matter of taste and opinion. I like Bad Company 2 more than Modern Warfare, but I can say this, in the hopes of staying neutral: EA and Dice have closed the gap tremendously and created something truly special that in many ways equals or surpasses Modern Warfare.

Sure, a number of minor things got under my skin (some painfully spread-out checkpoints, crappy multiplayer unlocks, and a few bad online spawn points), but they'll scarcely prevent it from marching into the homes of millions of people for me to blow up. It's kind of like DICE has trained for a game development biathlon, resulting in its first game where the single-player mode is just as good as the multiplayer -- and that says DICE has what it takes to be among the best in the business. In times when "modern" is the word-of-the-day for military-themed shooters, Bad Company 2 proves you don't need to stand at the top of the medal podium -- you simply blow it to goddamn smithereens.

With all the different classes, vehicles, and stationary weapons (like heavy machine guns and mounted rocket launchers) at play, there is a dazzling array of ways to wage war. These tools, coupled with the threat and promise of destructibility, make Bad Company 2's battlefields uniquely chaotic and electrifyingly fun. The action is top-notch in both campaign and multiplayer alike. Whether or not you're looking for a new shooter in your life, you owe it to yourself to play Battlefield: Bad Company 2.

Bad Company 2 ist ein spielbarer Action-Film: Die zerstörbare Umgebung bringt eine Prise Taktik und einen ganzen Kochtopf Atmosphäre. Außerdem begeistern uns die Levelvielfalt, der unglaublich gute Sound, die detailverliebte Grafik und die mal durchgeknallten, mal nachdenklichen Charaktere. Punktabzug gibt's für die miserable KI und die stellenweise etwas laschen deutschen Sprecher. Also Solospiel ist Modern Warfare besser, im Multiplayer-Modus halten sich beide Titel ungefähr die Waage.

Die Kampagne hat mich zwar nicht so gefesselt wie der Online-Part - trotzdem wurde ich gut unterhalten. Auch hier macht es Spaß, mit Panzer & Co alles in Schutt und Asche zu legen. Schade, dass die Chaoten-Truppe nicht so viele skurrile Witze reißt wie im Vorgänger. Ein weiterer Pluspunkt ist die Technik: Aus der Nähe betrachtet können die unscharfen Umgebungstexturen zwar bei weitem nicht mit all den Feinheiten eines Uncharted 2 mithalten (so wie der Publisher andeutete), doch auch EAs Shooter zaubert ein überaus ansehnliches Bild auf die Mattscheibe: Idyllische Panoramen, zerstörbares Terrain, detaillierte Charaktere und vor allem der konkurrenzlos wuchtige Sound sind klare Highlights. Wichtiger als das ist allerdings, dass der Online-Part verdammt viel Spaß macht - vor allem, wenn man Wert auf Teamplay legt! Wenn DICE sich auch beim Singleplayer noch etwas mehr ins Zeug gelegt hätte, wäre ein Platin-Award fällig gewesen.

Pour pas mal de raisons, Bad Company 2 pourrait bien passer pour le négatif de son grand frère. En effet, alors que le premier opus nous offrait une campagne délirante en dépit de ses lacunes et un multi un peu léger, voilà que cette suite se contente d'un solo efficace et maîtrisé, mais qui ne laissera pas de souvenirs impérissables, avant de faire péter la baraque avec un redoutable multijoueur à ne manquer sous aucun prétexte !
