"June was perhaps our most poorly reviewed month in IGN Xbox 360 history. Store shelves were packed with games -- almost all of which were bad. Few managed to stand out and only our winner for Game of the Month managed to truly earn our admiration.
Xbox 360 Game of the Month: Battlefield: Bad Company
Why We Picked It: "Battlefield: Bad Company is a great addition to the long-running series, despite the fact that it leaves the comfy confines of the PC world. The added storyline gives newfound depth to the formerly shallow single-player mode, despite the fact that the dramatization pales in comparison to what we've seen from Call of Duty 4. Where Bad Company truly shines is in its multiplayer and the technology that drives the game forward. Both raise the bar in their own right and give the competition something to strive for. In this summer relatively devoid of solid first-person shooters, Bad Company does enough to earn your hard-earned dough." – Nate Ahearn"
