Battlefield fans have long called for another Bad Company game. In fact, before this year's Battlefield game was announced, some had hoped it would turn out to be Bad Company 3, not Battlefield Hardline.
it reminded me of the film kellys heroes
It reminded me of the film Three Kings. https://www.youtube.com/wat... Firstly it was the single player campaign, and the fact that you could blow-up most of the buildings... in single player. Now the single player portions of the Battlefield games might as well be on-rail shooters for their complete lack of variety.
its all about the humor, nothing else.
It honestly reminded me of Three Kings also, but with humor. I loved the game and the single player was just fun to play. Then when you went to the multiplayer that was just amazing.
As said before, I really think what made it special was the destruction and the fact it wasn't a bro-shooter ! Every game tries hard to be "cool" and place the setting to be way too serious...BC really felt refreshing...Also not so much bullcrap and emphasis on endless customization.
for me it's the SP campaigns! so refreshing and full of humor and the stories are quite good and enjoyable compared to BF3 and BF4 where you're just a disposable soldier in the uber-generic storylines like one of those movies directed by Micheal Bay! all KABOOM but no substance! MP are awesome too with full destruction and stuff! it boggles my mind how in the hell did they come from awesome BFBC to poop like BF3 and BF4? I'm talking about the campaign, of course and why the hell did they tone down the destruction? like some of you guys here have said, I doubt I want them to touch BFBC series ever again as it might leave a bad taste if NF3 and NF4 are any indication for what to come! SMH at you guys DICE!
Lack of seriousness. It was just fun and the characters worked well together. I was a little bit disappointed with BFBC2 as they took a more serious route. Go back to them just going awol stealing stuff
I miss the sounds from when you got your patches and awards from bad company 1!!! I miss that the most. Also when you knifed someone and got their dog tags. The first bad company was the best in terms of tone. The second one had the better game play.
Not only was the destruction better. The gameplay was better and netcode was very solid. The game wasn't trying to do to much and was very well balanced.
The goofy campaign was great but what stood out the most was the competitive Multiplayer which had quite a learning curve, you can still find people playing it unlike BC2 so dice should definitely go in the bc1 direction. Probably one of my favorite games I'd love DICE endlessly if they'd make a direct sequel to the first one.
I think the fact it wasnt a bug riddles mess it why it was so popular.
Come on who doesn't like trying to outrun a helicopter in a golf cart? Bad Company was plain old fun, I wouldn't want another Bad Company game, I did for a long time but if they did another one it wouldn't be a good as the older games, they'll find away to screw it up I used to play Bad Company 1/2 daily, BF4 I play once a week, that should say enough
aye when a series is left for a few years and devs go another direction,they never nail what made it good when they go back.
Hopefully that isn't true for H-Hour
I loved Bad Company and BC:2 even more! to me it was all about the destruction, by the end of the match almost everything was rubble, barely any structures standing. Besides Levolution, the newer games don't have as much destruction.
The destruction. Also i preferred the original Frostbite 1 engine over Frostbite 2 or 3.
The funny squad and great single player campaign. Also the DESTRUCTION!!!!! I also like the MP maps much much more as well.
yeh the maps where miles better than the new ones I think.
The single player story and open nature. It wasn't a CoD rip off. Does anyone really need to ask why it was better than b3 & b4.
the planting c4 on a chopper then jumping out blowing up a tank. this is my fav fps this gen. so underrated. i like bad company 2 more than bf3. havent played bf4 yet but will when i get my ps4 edit and the destruction was supreme!!!!
Though I really disliked BC2
The campaign had interesting comedic characters Instead of 'generic Sgt' 'generic soldier 1' 'generic soldier 2' 'token black soldier' Plus it had a wacky story a bit like Kellys heroes about stealing gold instead of the generic bad guys with nuke affair.
I played the multiplayer BC2 to death. I loved how the maps were insanely huge and the destruction was beast.
I'm with you there. The BC2 maps were my absolute favorite in any game ever.
Yeah the rush game type was awesome.
Battlefield 3/4 destruction is like making the cutting in MGS rising only on fingers xP .
I made a mistake in my first comment, I meant to say that "the maps WEREN'T insanely huge" they were just the right size for confrontation.
Everything! Game had its issues but it's still my favorite Battlefield.
It was properly balanced, guns actually killed people and the maps were varied and awesome.
Bad company 2's Multiplayer was balanced better. The maps were some of the best they have made. And most of all the destruction was incredible. Way more destructable than bf3 or 4.
Its the humor like some said. Its the main characters (mainly the one who cracks all the jokes). Its the going against establishment to get a buck plotline. I think if they did a Bad Company 3 it should really feel like an epic action movie from the 80s with reoccuring characters (weird and unique) and stuff like exploring hidden temples and stumbling through intrigues and larger then life situations by an inch of self respect and hair; their characters growing stronger and bonding closer in the process. None of this bro tier shit... We want men with nothing to lose not channeling meme internet humor but real comedic timing and jokes that work.
They should sell the IP then. Keep the battlefield name and just sell the name bad company to someone.
Ahhh i remember this pile of garbage, got talked into it by friends to pick it up for PS3 - "good shooter" they said, as i begged them to let's not keep jumping to new crappy shooters everytime one comes out. "Let's stay on COD 3!" ( WW II based game ) i plead as it really focuses on you know the shooting, instead of lame gimmicks. So i tried Battlefield BC & it sucked terribly, lame gun fights, wonky controls, no prone? - really a military shooter with no prone...sir Fu k you, couldn't cook grenades if my memory serves me, very limited modes online - no TDM, CTF, single F CTF, standard DM just nothing fun about, i just never saw what anyone liked in it either.
The game on PS3 ran like a PS1 game. It was a piece of crap. Frame rate in the teens the entire time. I was so upset at the level of feces that was Bad Company.
Loved Bad Company 1 & 2 on PS3, and still play Bad Company 2 on PC all the time. I don't know what the cost would be to port the 360 version of BC1 to PC, but I wish they'd release Bad Company 1 on Origin :) It would help to create some additional depth with regards to the amount of games that Origin has to offer, and it would further bolster the Battlefield series on PC. They should release BC1 as a digital download on PS3 also. Not sure why they only offered BC1 as a digital download on Xbox 360 only.
How many people still play BC2 on PC?
Lots of people still play. Off the top of my head, I would estimate more than 500-600 during peak hours, and no less than say 250 at low times. Just a rough guestimate....
when they tried new things out its was good but it seems when you take that and mix it with regular bf its a complete shitty mess.
I personally like the slight open world like levels in the first bad company. Even though what i mean is big maps compared to a lot of first person shooters.
