Default So... I bought Battlefield Bad Company 2... bored already

Its probably just me... but this game is boring as hell. Good thing I only spent $20 bucks.

I'm going to "try" to play more, but definitely not nearly as intrigued with it as a game like Left 4 Dead 2. Maybe its because I burnt myself out of Battlefield so much years ago that they bore me now.

For what its worth, I played Battlefield 2 a ton and really had fun. This game just doesn't do anything for me. Maybe my taste has changed.

I honestly agree with you... I only tried the SP part of the game but **** is it boring. And why does the game feel sluggish when its running at 50fps or higher the entire time?

How much have you played? I'm creeping up on 20 hours and starting to like it more now. My first impressions were fairly lacklustre, not really sure if that was because I didn't have all the good unlocks or if I wasn't into the play style.

BF2 took me a good 20 hours to really start to enjoy it too.

Single Player is not really that good but who buys a BF game for Single player?

Why include a SP portion in a game if you don't intend on people to play it? The Bad Company series is a SP series with MP. Theres a reason they put a story into it, even though its a bad one with annoying characters.

I'm not going to play a game for 20 hours just to maybe like it more.


For reference. I loved Battlefield 2 within 1-2 minutes of playing. Same for Left 4 Dead 1/2. Same for Unreal Tournament 2003/2004. Same for Crysis. Same for Half Life Series. Same for TF2. The list goes on and on.


My feelings for Battlefield BC2 are the same as the Modern Warfare series. Yes i see why other people like it, but most people who like these games are the same that like Halo. They are noobies to FPS genre. I've been playing FPS games for 17 years. You're going to have to bring something better to the table than this cookie cutter FPS to intrigue me.


The best way I can describe how I feel about BFBC2 is that this is the exact same feeling I had when playing Unreal Tournament 3 for the first time. Yea sure its ok... but haven't I done this 20,000 times before?

When was the last game you played for 5 minutes, started a thread about how it sucked, then changed your mind after you actually played it enough to see what it had to offer?

I always give games their fair share of time. I'm going to play BFBC2 more. If I change my mind, trust me I will let everyone know.



For reference. I made a thread about how much I hated Left 4 Dead 2 when they released the demo. Most everything I disliked, was fixed by the time the actual game released, now Left 4 Dead 2 is my favorite game. Trust me dude. I'll give all games a fair shot.

Well, BC2 is all about MP IMO, though it has its issues that need to be fixed (hits registration for example)

Add me up for that. I have both games and I didn't even like it and I'm glad I didn't spend time acquiring those useless achievements. Waste of money for sure.

But my kid sister likes l4d2 so I let her play.

The single player is very meh. I have no desire to finish it. It plays like a training mission.

The multiplayer is awesome though.
