Despite the rather long acronym for the game(BFBC2), the first blush of both the single and multiplayer have proven to be absolutely over the top. Particle effects, sound and lighting are all nothing short of amazing and in multi: the destructible environments fundamentally change the way the maps are played. Sadly, I’m getting a lot of lag in multiplayer, but that will lessen as I find closer servers to play on.
The single player reminds me quite a bit of Far Cry– one section harkens back to my favorite level: River, but with sound and lighting that put Far Cry to shame.
If you haven’t picked this up, even if you have no interest in the multiplayer game, it’s time!
