JD Shep’s Game Fly Rental Review Summer Extravaganza #7 was originally posted as a Facebook note on 08/08/2010. Minor changes were made to the content and format.
Seventh on the list from Game Fly was “Battlefield Bad Company” for the Xbox 360.
*Warning* this review is incomplete.
“Battlefield Bad Company” is a first person shooter. This review is covering just the campaign portion of the game and not the multi-player.
I unlocked 1 of 50 achievements for 25 points out of 1000 points. (You can probably already sense where this is heading.)
You play as Private Preston Marlow, a new recruit to a division of the army known as Bad Company. Bad Company is a group of misfit soldiers that get sent on the missions the army doesn’t want the rest of the soldiers sent on. Though the missions in the campaign begin innocently enough with standard seek and destroy objectives, the team’s motivations quickly take a turn once the promise of personal wealth enters the equation.
1) Dialogue was funny.
2) Looks good.
3) Destructible environment.
1) Destructible environment– meaning you have no bloody cover. Or actually your cover becomes bloody.
2) I did not like the controls for the individual or the vehicles.
3) I died way to friggin’ much.
I really tried, but I could not get through the game. I don’t even think I made it past the first level. I was very frustrated and died at an incredible rate. It wasn’t that hard I just could not get used to it. I know I am going to piss a lot of you off especisally since a lot of the big ‘guys’ gave it more positive reviews, but I give this game the rating of 1) Clay Pigeon Substitute.
Thanks for Playin’!
