To quote the video review: “Bad Company’s philosophy can basically be summed up by one of its ubiquitous smiley-face grenades — blow stuff up and have fun doing it. No matter what map or mode you choose, every battlefield is highly destructible. Tanks, dirt, bridges, buildings, and even fences and sandbags explode. Even though there are still certain things that can’t be knocked down, you’re highly encouraged to see cover as temporary and discover that the quickest route between two points is as straight as the rocket flies.
Bad Company set out to deliver a successful single-player campaign, and it succeeds. This isn’t a unique feat and it’s not a new high standard, but it’s definitely a first for the series. The game’s multiplayer mode finally brings the PC experience to the consoles and will hold up for quite a while with the promise of downloadable content, but there is definitely a hole left for conquest mode to fill. Even so, this Battlefield is definitely worth returning to.”
