Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is arguably one of the two best shooters. In the single player campaign you command a soldier that is a member of an elite squad that is usually sent behind enemy lines to complete top-secret missions. The single player campaign starts with a flashback of US soldiers that were sent to the vicinity of Japan's coast during the last few years of WW2 to investigate a new weapon the Japs were developing. After that you are to find out who used a similar weapon. Oddly enough, Russians did it. I won't spoil any more of the story line because it is really fun to complete it by yourself. It is like a movie.

Graphically, the game has seen improvements in character models and in object models. Most of the maps show great building details and those maps that have vegetation show how rich the detail are. Using the same engine as Bad Company 1, Bad Company 2 allows you to destroy pretty much everything: vegetation, buildings, vehicles, etc.

The game engine allows for quick action. Maps are larger than those of Call of Duty, so the experience is totally different. Physics is involved in every move that you make. Shooting at long distances requires skill, since bullets drop because of the force of gravity, so you have to aim higher to kill. The online mode is more realistic than last year's game. The only thing that I don't like is that you can actually see the bullets that you fire, which under normal conditions you wouldn't be able to. more
