Back to Bad Company: what DICE's forgotten shooter taught me about life

OXM's Edwin writes: "We've all been there, we Battlefield veterans. Trapped in a nook while some utter b*stard studies you from afar with the calm of a boa constrictor, sending death your way from what feels like all directions. "

The story is too old to be commented.

I hope they make Bad Company 1 a digital download for the Playstation Store. BC2 was just released as a digital download around 3 weeks ago which is great since I'm all about downloads now.....the benefits of a 500 GB HDD on my PS3 :D

On another note, the Bad Company series is the best the Battlefield has to offer. The characters are some of my favorite characters of any game out there, and you can't beat the destructibility that Bad Company offers. Nothing like collapsing a house on a few enemies.

Put BF3 at the very end. Actually don't even put it on the list.

BF2>BF2MC>BF1942>BF2 142>BF1943>BFBC>BFBC2 > BFH/P4F>a steamy turd>BF3

Maybe I should move a steamy turd in front of BFH/P4F

One of the best things about BFBC2 was the destructible environments.
I never got frustrated with that game the way I did with BF3, BC2 would still often turn into a sniper fest but it was less of a pain than it is in BF3 because of the smaller maps, I got sick of seeing snipers in BF3 taking off in a chopper or a jet then dumping it when they got to their spot.

lol im sorry,

dont dare compare BF2, 2142 & 1942 to these modern "battlefield" games.

If you truly think these great PC games are in anyway comparaple to the modern BF era garbage we have today then you have either never played them or you got destroyed.

It is not even battlefield anymore since EA got their grubby little hands involved with BF.

DICE are a great developer when they are left to do their work without EA interfering e.g the DICE keynote they made some amazing mods for skyrim.

Sorry but older BF games are about tactics and having a good aim, not charging around holding down shift noobspraying and getting rewarded via the supression effect.

u can pick up bad company 1 for £5 quid 2nd hand shop brother. probably 10 dollars if your american. and not needin an online pass for it is win win. still prefer bf3 thoe imo over the others. just has far more immersive gameplay.battlefields are my favs no doubt.

@BattleAxe

BF2 and 2142 are at the top of the series.

Pandamobile2384d ago (Edited 2384d ago )

It was hard for me to classify BFBC as a true Battlefield game because 24 players was such a small number. The action was pretty sparce.

I enjoyed the single player though.

dark-hollow2384d ago

Besides the limited number of players and the inclusion of Jets, i think BFBC1&2 is much better than the nerfying galore that is BF3.

Pandamobile2384d ago

I disagree. Maybe if your first Battlefield game was the Bad Company series, but going from Battlefield 2 to BFBC2 didn't feel right.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVED Bad Company 2, but it was missing a lot of what I loved from previous BF games. Namely air combat and large scale 64 person battles.

Surface blemishes aside, Battlefield 3 is an amazing game and in my opinion, way better than BFBC2. The player locomotion is SO much better. Weapons handle better, vehicles are better, etc.

BF3 took the best parts of BFBC2, BF2 and Mirror's Edge and smooshed them into one awesome package.

Oh, and it's also the best looking multiplayer game in existence. So it's got that going for it as well.

"Don't get me wrong, I LOVED Bad Company 2, but it was missing a lot of what I loved from previous BF games. Namely air combat and large scale 64 person battles."

thats why i said if only bad company had those it would totally blow BF3 away.

"Surface blemishes aside, Battlefield 3 is an amazing game and in my opinion, way better than BFBC2. The player locomotion is SO much better. Weapons handle better, vehicles are better, etc."

nothing drastic in how weapons/ vehicles are handled from BFBD2 to BF3. what truly annoyed me is how nerfed and weak everything felt.
now and especially after the latest "updates" good weapons are now basically useless, mortars are like mosquito stings, tanks are graves on wheels, riding those would would assure that you would get owned very fast, and i dont mean that tanks should be the ultimate weapons of mass destruction, but come on! give us some firepower and make respawning times for tanks if they get destroyed longer.

balancing is great, but nerfying every good weapon and even makes some completely useless is not the way to go.

at the end of the day i had more with bad company then i did with battle field.. there both fun but i always went back to bad company

Soldierone2384d ago

To each his own (and I'm sure no matter what Battlefield die hards will tear apart anything saying something good about Bad Company) but I enjoyed Bad Company 2. It had great skill in gun on gun play, plus people would hide in the hills and stuff all the time.

I love BF3, it just feels "easier" than Bad Company 2. That and they keep nerfing everything.....and no matter what, you always get people that learn how to fly in Battlefield and thats when I get turned away most of the time. When BF first comes out, people are getting used to it and learning the maps and getting the hang of flying. then they get good and your stuck running scared from the "elite" pilots in the sky, and it sucks.

(As a PC gamer I can see the hate for Bad Company, but as a console gamer Bad Company 2 was a better experience for me)
