Battlefield: Bad Company (1)

OFFICIAL WEBSITE: http://badcompany.ea.com/
SYSTEMS: PS3, XB360
RATING: T for Teen
DEMO: here (on June 5th)

You probably know a bit of the story line, 4 rejects essentially get all the worst assignments and blast their way thru to victory.

Well, taking a look at some of the footage, I think this game might be worth serious consideration. There are some odd things about it, like always driving vehicles in 3rd person, and much of the game I think you're nothing more than a taxi driver for the other squad members, but there is something about the level of detail, the large landscapes, the quality of dialogue, sound effects, ability to blast openings in buildings and the self-administering of health, that makes this game worth a second look.

With this in mind, the upcoming Battlefield: Bad Company 2 should be worth a look.
