With the KILLZONE 2 release out of the way, the only real competition for BATTLEFIELD: Bad Company 2 in 2009 appears to fall on the shoulders of Modern Warfare 2, MAG and HALO 3: ODST. Looking at the competition, BATTLEFIELD: Bad Company 2 does appear to be the obvious underdog. Modern Warfare 2, the sequel to the 2007 Game of the Year in COD: Modern Warfare followed by MAG, the PS3 exclusive bolstering the most robust online experience with 256 players online and countless upgrades. Finally, HALO 3: ODST, the Xbox 360 exclusive shooter which is surrounded by much mystery.
Can DICE offer an experience that could possibly trump the competition?
