I had long grown tired of multiplayer games since the release of the Xbox 360. Sure, I was willing to give multiplayer games a try but nothing grabbed my attention for long, not even behemoth titles like Halo 3 and Call of Duty 4. Bad Company 2 was the first online game since Return to Castle Wolfenstein that had me completely immersed and addicted to for the entire year. Dice created a fantastic multiplayer that no other developer has matched this generation, unfortunately the campaign doesn't reach the same heights.
Pros: -Explosive class-based multiplayer -Multiplayer scores based on how much you contribute, not just kils -Superb, large-scale maps -Beautiful graphics -The best sound effects for a FPS...EVER. -Dedicated servers= No lag, No host advantage -Solid campaign with a great WWII intro level
Cons: -Campaign pacing is sluggish -No large set-pieces for campaign -Still no co-op campaign -Horrible teammate A.I. -Lame story and weak humor
