Good. No problems here.
The first mission takes place in World War II, whereas the rest is set in the present day. It's very slow and boring, not only does this level base itself off of something that never could have possibly happened in World War II, but the screen shakes maniacally whenever a loud alarm or a big explosion goes off. It's almost laughable when it happens. The rest of the missions have very beautiful environments, varying from snowy mountains, rain forests, deserts, urban, open areas with mountain surrounding them, and with autumn trees. in some places. The story itself is okay. But the part where the game's problems really appear is in the gameplay. Whenever an enemy has a shotgun, they can kill you at the range of a sniper rifle, and the enemies only try to kill you, instead of your teammates as well. They apparently also have x-ray vision, because no matter where you hide for cover they always know the exact spot your in. For example: If you try hiding in a house, every enemy will always know which room you're in, which corner you're hiding in, and which part of the wall to shoot. The cutscenes make it seem like an action movie, but with good characters. I won't try to spoil anything, but the final mission is surprisingly satisfying even though it isn't very long.
I really can't say much about this, because playing it requires your email, what country you live in, and what your birthdate is. Most games don't require this much information to play online.
It comes with the free DLC Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam, however, since this DLC is multiplayer-only, it needs the same information as said above.
I expected better, but it doesn't deserve to be called a bad game. Hopefully if DICE ever figures out what fans loved about this game and they make Bad Company 3, they will improve on some of these features.
Multiplayer is a fun and once you get the hang of it can be full of shenanigans. However, multiplayer isn't very popular right now. Only a few servers are populated in North America and the players are often very good so it can be hard to play. The Vietnam expansion was the best expansion I have ever played but has even fewer servers and players. Too bad since this was a very fun game.
Recommendation: I can't recommend it at more than $20 as the multiplayer base has mostly moved onto Battlefield 3 and 4 and other games. The singleplayer is fun but look for a discount so you don't have to pay the ridiculous EA price tag on Origin for a 2009 game.
The multiplayer rocks completely and since about half the players are all maxed out on experience from playing for years it is a decent challenge. The only drawback is when the opposing team is largely pros and your team is less so. Being completely dominated multiple times can be a bit depressing, especially when you turn around and find that half your team left the game ;-)
I've not found the auto-balancing function to be very effective even though it may announce the teams will be rebalanced "very soon".
Worth buying and playing while there are still servers up and running.
