Review: Battlefield – Bad Company

In Video Games on June 30, 2008 at 11:02 pm

What can I say about this amazing game? Well, let’s start with the basics, the plot. The plot is overall hilarious and fun. It takes you through the lives of the ‘Bad Company’ who are all US Army rejects and are labeled ‘expendable’. One of them blew up an ammo dump in Paris, another uploaded a virus to the Army’s secure network, the Sarge just wants to get out of the Army, and you, well you are the new guy. You go through Russia wreaking havoc, blowing up things, and mowing down Reds. The graphics, sound effects, and music are truly amazing. The graphics are mind-blowing, every detail is included and not one is left out. You can level entire towns, blow holes in buildings wherever you want, chop down forests, and even make ditches in the ground. The sound effects are so realistic that it’s scary. There are echos when you’re in a building, the guns sound so real, explosions are frightful, the whole lot. I personally love the soundtrack, the strings go very well with the gameplay and there are numerous songs, there is even a real working radio in the vehicles. Xbox Live is extremely fun. You go around stealing everyone’s gold and trying to defend your own, it’s something you’ll get addicted to pretty quickly. Well, that’s my review, here is the roundup.

 

Gameplay/Plot: 9.5/10

Graphics: 10/10

Sound effects: 10/10

Music: 9/10

Online Multiplayer: 9/10

Overall: 9.5/10

Bad Company

Off Topic: GTA IV, completely addicted

OK, I got GTA IV a few days after it came out, and I have to say that I am completely, utterly, and totally addicted to this amazing game. So addicted, in fact, that I am writing a blog post about it. You have all of Liberty City (New York City) to do whatever the hell you want. Jack a car, blow up a bus, murder a man, fly a helicopter, whatever you want. The story is also amazing. It is very deep and fluid, and it is extremely long. I have been playing until about midnight every night ever since I got it and I’m only about 30% done with the game. There are so many twists and turns, but still manages to keep the story solid, to-the-point, and cuts the crap. The multiplayer is also as amazing. You can play as a cop or a criminal, with all of NYC to yourself. If you have Xbox Live then hit my gamertag up at ‘Androlic 4000’. I know, corny, but that’s all I could think of. I give this game a solid 10/10 for gameplay, graphics, music (Over 200 songs), multiplayer, storyline, and creativity, you’re Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 collection is far from complete if you do not have this game.
