DICE Unsure Why People Like Battlefield: Bad Company

Battlefield fans have been getting a lot of attention from EA and DICE. With the shelving of Medal of Honor, Battlefield has become EA’s only go-to military shooter. Still, there’s a fan request that has gone unanswered.

Bravo, DICE. You guys prove once again that you're totally clueless nowadays. There are several reasons why people loved Bad Company.
-It had legitimate destruction
-Well balanced gameplay
-Non-serious, goofy tone
-There weren't a billion unnecessary unlocks(aka simplicity)

Need I go on? If they ever make a sequel, I hope they realize what made the first two stand out and they take their damn time with it.

Good funny story and excellent multiplayer maps.
That's what I loved anyway.

exactly, one of the few campaigns with good characters and worth playing through.

level design was also miles better than any battlefield after them

BC and BC2 were far better games than BF3 and 4. apparently they have become retarded at DICE....i gues in their relentless pursuit to copy COD they have lost their identity

Salooh1575d ago

Yeah , i enjoyed the single player of bad company more then battlefield 3 and 4 single player combined . But never tried the online . I love the multiplayer on 3 and 4 though despite their problems. I always try to avoid noticing problems in games lol . So i'm having a different experience than most people xP ..

- Bad Company 2 maps were tight, balanced for 24 players

- had the best Rush mode in BF games

- vehicles more friendly to handle

- weapons and control felt better

- better damage balance

- better destruction

- objects easier to make out

Just bring us BC3, I was looking for this before BF4 tbh, Just make sure the game isn't broken went it releases....

I don't get it either. I know I'll probably get a lot of dislikes but I'm just stating my opinion and people should respect that. Battlefield 3 and 4 are way better than bad company. I don't understand how people think bc2 campaign is better than BF3 or BF4. Story is weak, production value is close to nonexistent. No epic set piece moments. Reminds me of people who prefer cod 4 campaign over mw2 and say black ops. Really weird, given the facts that the new installments are superior in every aspect; story, production, voice acting, score, environments, characters, villains....

I don't understand why people prefer bc2 multiplayer either. I myself love bf3/bf4's multiplayer and prefer it over bc2. For example first comment said that he likes the bc multiplayer because :
"-It had legitimate destruction" You're telling me bf4 has no destruction ? yes in bc2 you could destroy everything , but the maps were flat meaningless shit.
"-Well balanced gameplay" I don't understand how bf3 and bf4 are not balanced
"-There weren't a billion unnecessary, unlocks(aka simplicity)" You don't have to think about unlocking anything. Unlocking stuff and getting rewards is part of the fun in any game for me.

I think that a big part of the reason some people prefer bc2 over bf3 and bf4 is that they played it when they were younger.

Ali, the main installments went backwards in terms of a main feature (destruction). Running through a town while tanks and rockets destroy all the buildings around you was such a satisfying experience that BF3 and 4 were almost dissapointing.

Bring back mortar strikes called in by Recon.

Bad Company 1 had one of the best FPS single player campaigns last generation hands down. Although short on game modes, BC1 also had some amazing multiplayer maps.

Bad Company 2 was also fantastic with an improved multiplayer suite, but I have to admit that I didn't like the single player campaign anywhere near as much as BC1.

I would love to see EA release Bad Company 1 on Origin so that PC players can experience the awesome characters and open world single player action. I was really disappointed that EA never released BC1 as a digital download on PS3.

Overall, I prefer the Bad Company series over the main Battlefield series. In fact, I still play Bad Company 2 on PC all the time.

DICE should re-watch these videos they posted on their blog! A fellow named Norm360 made them and are the best video montages on BFBC2!

Oh man DICE... Really?

Come on' are you even playing your own games..

Why don't they just REMASTER Bad Company 2 and give us that, instead of the broke BF4 skin pack Hardline.

I would love to play Bad Company 2 on PS4 with new improved graphics, and keep everything the same, all game mechanics how they were.

When ever a Game Company is clueless on why something is good or why it works, Guess what you should do???

Ask your consumers.... -How did DICE become so clueless..

I didn't like BadCompany 2 tbh. Is it better than BC? Because I kinda liked that one and finished it.
Maybe I was just tired of Shooters at the time I played BC2

b163o11575d ago

Understandable, FPS have flooded the market last gen

Iamnemesis48801575d ago

Bad company is still fun to play

LonDonE1575d ago (Edited 1575d ago )

Bad company 2 online took skill to dominate and a good player could own, this how its supposed to be!
BF3 and BF4 just dumbed the game down, for instance stinger missiles which take no skill easily shoot down choppers, in BC2 it took skill to shoot down the chopper! and it took skill to fly well and dominate in the chopper!
It also takes skill to fly well etc in BF3 and BF4 but the problem is the chopper is too easily killed!
I think BF3 and BC2 were balanced allot better and the maps were light years better then BF4!

Also i think the control's were more snappy and responsive and more arcade like, i think BF3 and BF4 and overly complex with regards to guns attachments etc. Its over kill! I loved BC2 but it was ruined later in its life with the net code patch which lowered the server tick rates.
Its the same problem with BF4 which had a bad tick rate and is only being addressed now!

But even with its problems i LOVED BF3! sank hundreds of hours into it, the gun on gun combat was much better in BF3 over BF4! grenade spamming has to stop, it has ruined BF4! and the guns in general feel and handle like crap compared to BF3 and BC2!

I would buy BC2 remastered in 1080p 60fps and BF3 remastered in 1080p 60fps for the PS4 any day of the week!!

The unlocks in BF4 are retarded, forcing me to play with weapons I don't like to unlock weapons that I do like.

Bad company was fun Dice that all you need to know.

user74029311575d ago

its all about the gameplay thats why!!

LOL_WUT1575d ago

Real upfront knifing, shotgun sniping, UAV, destruction it was an overall better franchise compared to BF3 and 4 ;)

colt-of-tipton1575d ago

Well DICE for starters the characters are far more memorable and actually funny because of that the campaign was a joy to play.Then in multiplayer actual destruction that I cause, not crappy set piece "levolution" aswell as fantastic map design, that's why DICE .
