From Amazon.ca

Sometimes the gratitude of a nation just isn't enough

Set in the near future, the Battlefield: Bad Company single-player campaign drops gamers behind enemy lines as part of a squad of four soldiers - risking it all to go AWOL on a personal quest. Featuring a dramatic storyline flavoured with attitude, Battlefield: Bad Company leads gamers far from the traditional frontlines on a wild ride with a group of renegade soldiers who decide that sometimes the gratitude of a nation just isn’t enough. The Battlefield: Bad Company cinematic single-player experience captures the freedom and intensity of the Battlefield series’ multiplayer sandbox gameplay in a dynamic world where nearly everything is destructible. Players have total freedom to be daring and innovative, adapting to and tackling challenges in unexpected Battlefield-style ways. Create sniping positions by blowing out a piece of a wall or drive your tank straight through a small house. The ever-changing battlefield forces players, their teammates and enemies to react accordingly.

The game also features the all new, objective based multiplayer game mode "Gold Rush", supporting 24 players online. Play as attackers and defenders and make full use of the tactical destruction as well as the unique vehicle experience of Battlefield: Bad Company.

Battlefield: Bad Company is the first game built from the ground up for next-generation consoles using DICE’s bleeding-edge Frostbite game engine, delivering unrivalled graphics, effects and gameplay.

B Company

Welcome to the 222nd Army battalion, B-company. This is where the Army rakes together all the insubordinates, hellraisers and troublemakers that won’t fit in any other unit. When the Rangers and Deltas are too expensive to waste, these guys are the first ones in.

They’re called “Bad Company”; a mismatched bunch of rejects selected to serve their country as cannon fodder. This isn’t the kind of outfit a lot of soldiers would join voluntarily. Getting transferred to “the B” is a punishment and a way for the generals to put all their rotten eggs in one basket.

No one starts out in Bad Company. But for some, this is where they end up.

Format: Video Game
EA's Battlefield series has always delivered a top notch online experience, but how does Bad Company stack up? Perfectly.
In Addition to the online play, Bad Company also features an all new single-player campaign which adds nicely to the already tight mix of gameplay.

So whats great about the online play? An all-around quality of design, which few games are able to match.
Seven massive and beautifully structured levels make up the field of play, with two well tweaked game modes: Gold Rush(Attack and Defend) and Conquest(Capture the Flag). Both of these modes work very well. Everything feels very balanced.

You are able to pick from 5 different class types; Assault, Support, Recon, Demolition and Specialist. Each class has its perks, catering to all kinds of players and their styles. I found the equipment available for each class to be fairly adequate, enabling for a perfect mix of teamwork with other friends online.

Some criticism, however, may arise in the feel and handling of weapons. The effectiveness of some weapons seemed to be dumbed down to prevent a certain weapon from becoming a "noob cannon". One example is the grenade launcher; even a direct blast from this weapon rarely, if ever, takes out an opponent in a single hit. However, this issue seems hardly to be a problem, and can easily be overlooked for the sake of balanced gameplay.

As for the single player campaign, though not as fine a slice of pie as the online play, is still a great addition to the game. The campaign moves you along large battlefields covering a great amount of distance with a tight nit group of characters who aid you on your way and keep you smiling with light hearted remarks and well tuned sarcasm. This works pretty well overall.

Fun game - even in 2014. Good story and just a tiny bit goofy troop member. Didn't play online at all. Did the solo campain and it took me around 10 hours.

If you can get this game for a few bucks, the solo mission is a lot of fun. Dunno about the online play

Not perfect, but a lot of fun. June 24 2008
By Will - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Video Game Fun:   
This is a great game in its own right, with 24-player online matches, fully destructible environments, and a full range of land, sea, and air vehicles in very large maps. All of these things are very impressive for a console, but may be nothing too exciting for fans of the older Battlefield games on the PC.

It may take a little while just to get used to the game, but it can be a lot of fun once you get into it. The game overall isn't as clean or realistic as Call of Duty 4, but you really have to keep in mind that they're trying to bring a lot more to the table, whereas COD4 focused on perfecting a few key aspects of the gameplay. Those are two really different approaches to game development, and so it's really not fair to compare the two directly.

With that said, however, the controls and aiming don't feel nearly as sharp or responsive as they should, and this can get frustrating when you're trying to frantically maneuver your vehicle out of harm's way or land a shot on the guy in the tiny window across the village.

It'll be a little while before you pick up on the full range of things you can actually do in the game (tagging enemy vehicles with tracer rounds so that your buddy can lock onto it with a rocket launcher, for instance, or deploying smoke from your tank to cover your retreat). That's when things really get fun (and you stop dying as much). Online matches tend to descend into chaos rather quickly, but if you find some friends to play with and stick together, the cooperative aspects of the gameplay really shine through and can make for a very rewarding experience.

In conclusion, there are a few areas for improvement, but it's a very good multiplayer game in its own right, and it's definitely worth checking out (especially if you're new to the series).

Is this game a secret? March 31 2009

I think this game is better than any of the COD games. No infinite enemies spawning, not as linear, great graphics, big environment and most everything blows up. Co-Op would be a big plus with all the vehicles, etc..I am going Live because of this game.

the next level of Battlefield. July 11 2008
By Raul Duke - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Video Game Fun:   
hands down, this is the best FPS this year, the only one i expect to be better is Farcry 2. im a sucker for open-ended sandbox style gameplay, and this one delivers, the levels are HUGE and your options for victory are only limited by your imagination. that enemy tank getting your down? just call in an airstrike. dont have that equipment? find some c4, make a quick pass by the tank, dropping it as you run, and watch the firewors! this game is a total blast, its the most pure fun ive had with a shooter since Bioshock.

for the first time in a Battlefield game, you actually have a great single player game, the story and characters really are well done, even if your teammates are living cliches. basically your squad of four consists of the lowest outcasts of the army, who are there either there to shorten a jail sentance or shorten their required time served. they fight on the front lines, usually alone, and with some quick wits(and big guns) you can conquer a small army! which brings me to my next point and one of the very few negatives in the game, in many cases online or off, the most important factor is not skill, but who has the biggest guns, not that skill isnt immensely important, because it is. if you dont know the game, the online regulars will tear you apart and spit you back out before you realize your dead. the fantastic single player will get you acquainted fast though.

as of right now, the online only has one match type, Gold Rush, which plays similar to capture the flag, only on a much larger scale with multilple control points. the classic Conquest mode will be added for free download in the next couple months.

a big factor is the destructible environments, and it delivers. mostly. i have a few complaints regarding the environmental distruction. if i can destroy nearly any wall, why are floors completely invincible? and if my tank can plow through a wall, why does it get stuck on the most pesky little things?(small rocks, framework, a BATHTUB haha).. nothing game-breaking, but it gets pretty annoying driving vehicles in towns/bases.

on-foot, fps controls are similar to COD4 with the steady-aim/zoom in on the left trigger. the only major difference is the placement of the duck button, here its RS instead of B. not the the game itself feels AT ALL like COD4, and it isnt trying to in the leased. this game is carrying on the Battlefield tradition, and oh man is it a worthy follow up. i cant stress enough how great this game is, just take my word for it, and buy it now

Battlefield & Chaos July 7 2008
By coopertex - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Video Game Fun:   
Battlefield Bad Company is a FPS for the XBOX 360, This is an open world combat game similar to Medal of Honor Airborne and Frontlines Fuels of War. But most people feel that it must be compared to Call Of Duty 4, which of course is the best FPS on the 360.

Playing the single player campaign in Bad Company has you fighting alongside a squad of three AI (artifical intelligence). Unfortunately, your AI sqaudmates are practically brain dead! They will stand out in the open and not shoot back at the enemies. The enemy AI are shooting hailstorms of bullets at you but seldomly attack the AI squadmates on your team. This shoddy programming takes away from the realism and makes the game feel cheesy and low budget.

Since your sqaudmates are useless, that you will have to take it upon yourself to get into the combat and mission objectives. Many of the missions have intense firefights and are pretty straight foreward. The maps are very massive and open for the most part. This open world combat lets you devise your own plan of attack which is an excellent experience in itself. There are plenty of weapon pickups and checkpoints which automatically save your progress. If you get killed, you just respawn from the last checkpoint you passed.

The levels use streaming technology which means no loading times when going from one part of the map to the next. The levels also are persistant which means that whatever destruction you caused or enemies you killed; they remain the same and DO NOT reset after you get killed. The best thing about Bad Company is the destructiblility. Trees, containers, vehicles, and walls can be destroyed. The graphics and sound effects do a good job of conveying the chaos from this destruction.

There are two game mode type for multiplayer online. The mode called, "Gold Rush" allows up to (12) players on each team. The defending team protects the gold crates, while the attacking team tries to destroy them by either planting a charge on the crates or simply shooting at them till they blow up. Gold Rush, is so much fun that it should be renamed to "Head Rush".

Recently the game's developer, made Conquest mode available as a free download. Conquest plays like a cross between capture the flag and territories. It uses four pre-existing maps that have been modified to fit its style of gameplay. It is a nice addition to the overall package.

Here's a small taste of what you should expect to see during the matches:
Mortars shower from above, attack choppers dominate from the air, battle tanks destroy by ground, artillary strikes are awesome, air strikes have lethal precision. All the while lots of small skirmishes are taking place-Specialists running around with their silenced smg, Demolitionist blasting with their shotguns, Snipers killing from afar, Support providing suppressive fire and Assualt soldiers aggressively attacking everyone.

Despite some of its flaws, the chaotic battles, destructive environments, and amazing sound effects make Battlefield Bad Company an enjoyable experience for FPS fans. It is not a perfect game by any means and it probably won't topple COD4, but Bad Company certainly is one of the best open world combat games available for the XBOX 360.

Pros:
+open world combat
+destructible environments
+massive levels
+excellent map designs
+ragdoll physics
+jaw dropping sound effects
+excellent controls
+excellent vehicles
+balanced weapons
+intense firefights
+conquest mode added recently

Cons:
-brain dead AI in single player mode
-It does not win over COD4

One of the Top 5 Games of 2008 Aug. 22 2008
By Gorilla - Published on Amazon.com

Killer game!

I almost skipped Battlefield: Bad Company because it doesn't have co-op play. Thankfully I bought it anyway.

This game hits everything it aims for.

Gameplay: Fantastic. Immersive. Fun, even for those who are just watching. Interesting health system - one of your outfitted items is an adrenaline self-injector. You select it, pull the trigger, and watch your character stab himself in the heart. After grunting, your health is replenished to 100%. There's a 5 or 10 second recharge on this injector, more than enough time to give the enemy a chance to finish killing you, especially on the hard difficulty.

When this system was introduced, I thought it would get tiring after a while, or make the game too "arcade-y," but that wasn't the case. You'll still die, and the choice the designers made about the health system keeps the combat interactions as realistic as possible without being excruciating. (let's face it: no one buys a game where they lie in the mud getting eaten by bugs for a week before scrapping the mission and going home...even though I'd wager that's a more common and "realistic" combat experience than this game offers. If you want realistic combat, join the marines.).

Level Design and Missions: varied and fun. I tend to hate timed missions, and there's only a single ONE to be found here. A good assortment of shoot 'em up, protect your friends, escape, destroy hardware, and defense. There's even a night mission that requires solo play (without your AI team), and it's one of the most memorable in the game.

There was ONE mission that nearly had me stuck. That was due to my own lack of skill in playing - I got stuck (without ammo) on the wrong end of a bridge covered by snipers and .50cal nests. Even so, I eventually got through. You know those annoying games where you get lost during a level? Where you can't figure out where to go or what you should really be doing? Not here. A helpful (if a bit restrictive) red "artillery range" area is displayed around the path to your objective. If you go into the red area, you have 5 seconds or you're dead. A bit cheesy, but it keeps the game flowing. Even so, the game's environments are huge and beautifully detailed.

AI: I played this game on the "normal" and "hard" difficulties - the AI was intelligent and had a few different strategies. "Hard" is comparable to the Legendary difficulty in Halo. It's something fun to do while having a few beers with friends, seeing who can last the longest, and over a few hours advancing through a level.

Your AI teammates don't die and never run out of Ammo. It helps.

Weapons: Fun to use, realistic looking and sounding (except for the Steyr AUG...not sure what happened there). The only game I've played so far where shooting a rifle actually kind of feels like...shooting a rifle!

Sound: Without a doubt, the highlight of Battlefield: bad company. This game has incredible sound. Interesting fact: humans are genetically programmed to fear only one thing at birth: violent noises. Well, this game delivers them. Several times during the game, I found myself crouching behind cover longer than I needed to, and just enjoying the sounds of the battle raging around me. From NCO's shouting orders over the gunfire, to the screams of soldiers getting hit, to the thundering sounds of artillery and heavy armor in the background, to the fantastic sounds of the small-arms fire echoing down a street...it's amazing.

The sound is a huge part of why this game is so cool. Good speakers highly recommended.

Storyline: Enough to keep it going. I can appreciate a good story, but it really isn't needed (and wouldn't be all that productive) here. The developers clearly spent their time on what mattered for this game. The storyline is there for those who want some direction/context, but it's lighthearted and doesn't take itself too seriously. Perfect for the world you're playing in, since this game needs a fun story to balance out the "serious" combat. Believe it or not, this actually ADDS replay value to the game. I don't think I would have gone back for a replay on "hard" if I knew there was a dark, brooding story (a la Rainbow) looming there waiting for me.

Overall: This is a fun way to waste 15 hours of your life. There's plenty of replay value to be had, and you never have the feeling that you're running out of things to do. So many games give you all they've got in the first 5 hours, and then make you repeat it over and over for another 5 to get to the end. When you're playing Bad Company, it always feels like there's more than one way to get where you're going, depending on your style of gameplay and the weapons you're currently holding. It's never tiring, and thanks to a first rate save system, you can usually finish up within 3 or 4 minutes without losing any progress, if Real Life calls.

10/10. A must-have for anyone who's ever enjoyed shooters.
