Bad Company 2 Might "Easily Pull Addicts Away From MW2"
Almost from the moment Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 released, EA has been promoting Battlefield: Bad Company 2, often saying it can and will compete well with Activision's quality blockbuster.
But a source besides EA has now proclaimed the highly anticipated sequel to be even better than most expect. According to a recent hands-on preview by PSM3 magazine (as cited by CVG), Battlefield: Bad Company 2 "feels more spontaneous and varied than your average shooter," which is a statement many gamers can get behind. After all, we often complain about a lack of ingenuity and diversity in the FPS genre, although we should remind you that both MAG and Bioshock 2 aren't your everyday, run-of-the-mill first-person experiences and they are both available now. Anyway, the article goes on to say that the abilities and classes in BC2 are outstanding and really separates this multiplayer mode from the rest of the crowd; in the end, they say: "For our money, the best Battlefield yet is a better online game than Modern Warfare 2." That's a fairly bold claim, especially considering the insane popularity of MW2.
"DICE have produced a game that could easily pull addicts away from Modern Warfare 2's moreish paintball sessions."
Those who played and enjoyed the original title will be glad to hear this, and if you never played the first Bad Company, you should still be excited about this sequel. DICE has proven their worth several times over this generation; the BC franchise isn't their only claim to fame and we shouldn't forget about Mirror's Edge. We want a sequel to that, too, guys.
