Battlefield Bad Company 2 is a recently released shooter for PC, PS3 & XBOX 360. The original Battlefield Bad Company game was released on console only.
I don't know how the console players received this game but from what I've seen, PC players are loving it. From Battlefield veterans to Call of Duty players, many are loving this game for it's online element. For me though I think Battlefield 2 (v1.5) is the superior online game but that's another story.
Battlefield Bad Company 2 has a singleplayer campaign.
Many PC players will be saying..
--What's a singleplayer? --BF:BC2 has singleplayer? --Yeh that's what you do when your internet is down...
BF:BC2 has given me some of the best singleplayer gaming I've ever experienced.
*stunning *intense *engaging *FUN!
Serious game - NO Did I mention FUN? - YES
Before I started the campaign I really wasn't expecting much. I thought at best it may look good but will probably be a token addition to the game. I was wrong!
Dense jungles : deserts : snow-torn mountains : destructable environments.. You'll get about 8 hours of play so two nights will do it for most. I highly recommend playing this singleplayer campaign. The game is worth the money just for this alone..... and then there's the online modes..
I give the BF Bad Company 2 Singleplayer Campaign 9/10. The only reason it doesn't get a 10 for me was the lack of Co-op. Being able to share the experience with friends would make this Campaign close to perfect. I would love to see this in a future patch! Spending a day with mates playing as 'B' Company working our way through the Campaign..
I was looking forward to Call of Juarez: Bound In Blood. It's the prequel to the Wild West 2006 action shooter Call of Juarez. I played the original Call of Juarez demos but found they crashed a lot which put me off. I had faith in this recently released prequel though and bought it on release day. I was hoping they would release a solid western style shooter considering they already had a title to get feedback on etc. The result was positive and I've played many hours without one crash :)
There was one thing though that annoyed me (besides the lack of server cvars)... the crosshair_helper... that ugly circle right in the middle of the screen! For me it is so bad I couldn't play it. It ruined the immersion for me. I would have at least liked some menu options for the croshair setup.
Anyway, I've put together a small simple mod to remove the hud_crosshair_helper. It works for single and multiplayer. Multiplayer servers do not require the file for a client to use it.

Welcome to my blog :) My hobby is to put together online game servers. This site provides all the information about my servers and mods plus more in the one easy to navigate place. The front page is a chronological account of my workings, server updates and gaming news while the static pages hosts full details of each server/mod. Other things will be posted on occassions but it'll mainly be gaming related.
