Been playing my copy that I got used from Gamefly the past few nights...

Great game for the $15 I spent... I'm looking forward to the Vietnam Expansion.

I find it hard to spot enemies though, they blend in so well.

Is this game worth it? I didn't care for the 1st one....this one looks improved and it seems the kids stay away from this one as opposed to COD + the Vietnam map looks pretty awesome.....I can get this pretty cheap through Gamefly, but is it worth it?


YES. A resounding YES. I've played this game more than any other over the past year. Multiplayer is very, very fun. And if you're buying used from Gamefly, you should be receiving the unused VIP pass in the case, so you'll get all the maps for free. The only DLC that has not been free so far has been the Onslaught mode, and the upcoming Vietnam expansion. (Also the completely skippable Spec-Ops alternate outfits.)

Wow this sounds like a no-brainer then...thanks for the response.

I don't know if you guys know this but the upcoming [free] VIP Map Pack 7 has 4 new maps. And now you are going to be like oh yea kirby "new" maps, right. Just like all those other "new" maps. No this time it is for real. 2 maps from the original Bad company and 2 real new ones based on BC2 single player. Pretty awesome. Edit: But also they are nerfing the Carl Gustav my favorite gun :(

Glad to see a 'Nam release date.

Not sure if I like the new maps. Cold War on Rush is intense, though. Heavy Metal is fucking HUGE.

No sound problems except some dudes mike buzzing last night. Feel free to add me anyone. I'm not that great a player. I still need to do some of the Onslaught stuff too.

Still adjusting to the maps but I will say they all offer something a bit different than what we're used to, especially Heavy Metal. Hooray for variety.

Did they add new music for the loading screens of the new maps? Maybe I just wasn't paying attention but at least one or two of the songs I heard I didn't recognize.

Was getting close to full achievements on this, then they fucking tacked on the Vietnam ones! Argh. Was hoping they'd be kept separate. Oh well. Should be on again tonight for a while...was in a few games with Hydrox yesterday where we promptly got decimated by some dude in a helicopter, although I did make a miracle tracer dart shot on a helicopter that had to be near maximum altitude. Makes me wish this game had a Halo-ish replay editor. Anyone who wants in send me a message when I'm playing.

Still need all the Onslaught stuff. I figured I'll just stick to the hardcore ones to get all the achievements at once. As long as we have one sniper/spawn bitch we should be ok.

I'm loving the new maps, I've gotten owned in Heavy Metal twice.

Yes Kane, they did add new music for some of the new maps :D I liked that small detail :D

I don't know if y'all have had the same issue as me but I have still not been able to receive my XM8 LMG silver star despite several kills I've gotten with it. I thought that, and several other small issues, would be something they would fix in this last update.

I just hate to stare at that silver star that won't disappear from my stats page :lol:

Onslaught was a lot of fun, and unless I am in a game of rush with my friends (or playing L4D or CV HoD) I'd be happy to help anyone with Onslaught. Friend me or msg me if interested, and I will try to help out.

Damn these new levels. They are killing my k/d and tactics. They are way too big to the point where it is easy to get around people.

Same. Playing Cold War a lot has easily decreased my k/d from 1.17 to 1.11 in a matter of one day. I normally don't care about K/D ratios but I was pretty proud of that considering how bad I suck at most FPS.

Looks like a lot of fun. 8 new maps total in the next month (including the recent vip pack) and the other BF maps that I haven't played in months will make this feel like an all new game. Now if only they would remake backstab and bridge too far

Played for a couple hours with Lifes Avenger and Stuttering Billy .. good times. I probably won't be on much this weekend, but Sunday night/Monday I'll be on regularly all week throughout the afternoon.

was playing last night and i had trouble with the sound - there was none. anyone else have that problem?


I had this happen once a couple months ago. Pretty weird glitch. No sound at all. I was in party chat with a friend at the time. Power-cycled my xbox after the match, and it was fine again when I reloaded it.

Did they add new music for the loading screens of the new maps? Maybe I just wasn't paying attention but at least one or two of the songs I heard I didn't recognize.


I noticed the same thing last night. It's a nice touch.

I love how big some of the new maps are in Rush, like Oasis, and the one from BC1 with the huge tank battle to start, forget the name. But the one in the snow (Cold War?), holy crap, that one is tiny, especially the first stage.

If you have a prepaid live card then no you do not need a credit card.

Do I need to dl the 1.6GB Vietnam update just to start playing online again? I don't plan on buying the Vietnam expansion, so I'd rather not use up all that space. It keeps telling me I can't find any matches.
