Battlefield Bad Company.

The game:

Battlefield games have always been popular for the massive scale of battle and off-course vehicle warfare, something that sets it apart from its rivals like Call of Duty.
Intense fire-sequences and extremely loud explosions fill your speakers as you roar down the golfcourse in your M1A1 Abrahms Main Tank, 60 tones of modern warfare, prepared to rip every house apart.
Dice have really created the sense of scale for the soldier in this game. Now as most FPS games it utilizes the controller fully with commands and excellent aiming system.

Singleplayer:

You take part of the 222nd Army Battalion, or B Company. You, Preston Marlowe joins up as the rookie in the the squad. But this is no typical company you join, it's the Bad Company, the place for people that are hellraisers and troublemakers end up. Its called Bad Company since the mismatched bunch of rejects are selected to join the army as cannonfodder.
You dont choose to join the B Company,you get transfered as considered a punishment.
You squad contains of 4 people including yourself:

Preston Marlowe is just the typical army boy, like Lieutenant Dane in Forrest Gump. Always had a man in the family in every war, and got tranfered for landing a chopper on the Basket court.

Haggard is the a weird fellow in the bunch, triggerhappy and loves explosions. Reminds me of the stereotype of a redneck.

Sweetwater is a nerdy machinegunner that joined just to get a scholarship. He's always playing with Haggard in the cutscenes, pretty funny to see.

"Sarge" Redford is kind of like Sergeant Johnson in Halo, but with more of a fun character.

The game starts of in ex-soviet country, with a made up name. You join up with you squad and start getting these suicidal "quests".
Your informer is a girl that everyone on the squad thinks is a real "hottie", and they keep asking about her. They eventually get on side tracks with some stories of Haggard dating her cousin. As one of your extreme fire-fights end up, they noticed that the ones they've just killed are not Russians, but Mercs. Not just ordinary mercs but "Acta non Verba" (Act dont talk (also a reward in the USMC)), but the thing is that they are known for getting payed with goldbars.
Haggard founds a small gold bar on the dead merc, now all hell breaks lose! As they get further they manage to invade a country, going AWOL (Absence Without Leave (Desertion)) when they frantically trying to chase down the goldbars. You will drive tanks, gold choppers and cars just to get to them, and ultimatlly getting to the "Legionnaire", the leader of Acta non Verba.
Estimate length: ~9-10hours


Multiplayer:

The Battlefield series are built from the open-sandbox battlefield tactics and warfare. There are two game modes in this game: Gold Rush and Conquest.

Gold Rush is a objective based attack/defend war, as one team is trying to defend their gold while the other one is trying to take it. The map expands as the attackers proceed further. This reminds of Rush on the Bad Company 2 demo.
Conquest in the old school Battlefield game-type, as you start of by your main base and proceed to capture spawnpoints/flags on the map. This is a Secure and Defend, as the other team will probably try to take the flag from you.

As you start you will have to select from four different classes, containing of Recon, Assault, LMG/Medic/Engineer and Specialist/"Bomber". All classes can be altered to suit your taste better with other weapons and stuff you unlock as you proceed in the ranks. Not as customizable as MW2 for example.
Every class has its advantages and disadvantages, making it a pleasant and even as there are no overpowered or glitches to exploit.


Sound:

This game has the original sound track and some good selected songs, aswell as radio in cars, both in Multiplayer and Singleplayer mode. But thats not where it stands out, every sound effect is unbelievably well recoded and makes you think if its not real after all. Call of Duty is not even close, with their "pea-sprayers", there is no depth in any of their games.
I had to turn down the volume after a moment after playing, with walls crashing down, buildings and bombs all over the place. There is nothing like running over trees with a tank and accidentally run over a sniper camping in the bushes. No other game comes even close.


Graphics:

This game is using the Frostbite engine, so the graphical edge isnt the best but combined with the destructible environment its something you forget early. Ive even heard sources that BF:BC2 is going to rival Crysis for best graphics on the PC.. So the engine was a bit unrefined at this game and much improved in the second one. Something i like is the anti-aliasing they have utilized heavily to improve the look of it. the game is running very smooth and so far i havent seen a single hick-up in performance.


Remarks:

A lot of in-experienced pilots will fail in this game, including me. The controls to the helicopters in Multiplayer are freaking hard!!!

Get this game, its down big time in price, and a good way to get the story before Bad Company 2!

I dont understand why you are only allowed to hold one weapon unless you have got a sniper. I get a machine gun but no pistol or anything to go with it and I cant pick another weapon up without swaping my other gun.

Weight, but still i get your point... When i was in the military i was using a M249 (minimi), as i were a LMG gunner in a recon platoon. Yes i did finish my military last year just before summer. I sweden we have something called "Lumpen", its kind of a draft but you dont get a job from them. Its kind of a 1 year training, to create a emergency military force. For 30 years ago every male in sweden had to do it, now there's is only 8 thousands... if im correct....

And the reason for not having 2 guns is to have more ammo to the primary gun, nothing else. We did get side arm training but, in case of action we would only get 1 rifle of the type we where trained in. God i loved shooting from the "foreign box". All kinds of weapons, Lee Einfield Sniper, that hurt a lot when it hit the shoulder.... But most fun was the AK-47, sounds amazing Razz

Good review. Even though BF:BC just doesn't appeal to me.
