Battlefield: Bad Company Impressions

The closed beta for DICE's next installment in the Battlefield series went live yesterday. Bad Company is exclusive to the Xbox 360 and PS3, and it's also the first BF game to utilize DICE's shiny, new Frostbite engine. I had a chance to sit down with the game and see just what it's all about.

Not being able to play with friends is a big downer for me but I understand that it's only a beta.
The tanks are fun though.

victim alert ehehe. joking

im having fun sniping and calling the tank busters.

Captain Tuttle3714d ago

I haven't tried sniping yet...I heard the draw distances are insane.

EastCoastSB3714d ago

Sniping is REALLY hard at great distances, you have to be precise.

Marceles3714d ago (Edited 3714d ago )

I wouldnt call the draw distances insane...the differences aren't anymore than what was on BF2. There's also pop-in on the beta, but the tech issues don't make the gameplay dull at all...if you liked BF2 you'll like this game as well

mariusmal3714d ago

yeah. im sniping great because i played BF2 a lot. it's similar to BF2. an yes it's insane compared to COD4.

Ive been playing the beta and it's ok nothing special, the destructible walls are fun for like 5 minutes then once that part has warn off its just basically the same battlefield as always.

I will give this game a miss i think.

Drilling through the wall is quite funny though as it makes a massive gap as if you had just fired a rocket at it

If it's the same old Battlefield...why complain?

Battlefield is frickin' AMAZING!

The multi-player is GREAT!

Props to these guys if they can pull of flight controls as well as Incognito. I don't think anyone has. Warhawk's controls are just...EFFIN A!!!

I doubt they'll even use the sixaxis anyway.

Not a great fan of the Battlefield series from the start i tend to prefer war games without the vehicles, unless its done really well like warhark, halo etc

LeonSKennedy4Life3714d ago

All my friends are in the Beta.

Why are they only doing a 360 Beta though? Didn't they learn their lesson when Infinity Ward screwed up their servers on the PSN??? If Insomniac can run 40 players at LAUNCH and have NO LAG...everyone else should be able to get away with 32 players and have no problem.

Then again, who's as talented as Insomniac. They really are an underrated company...even with all the hype surrounding Resistance 2.
