It was a good try, I guess. Couple of things:

Was he playing the PC, Xbox 360 or PS3 version?

The dust and bloom effects can hurt your eyes, luckily they can be reduced in the PC version.

There is multiplayer, which is the focus of the game. Try reviewing more than 40% of the game?

Loading screens involving "Google maps" were originally done in Battlefield 2, not Modern Warfare 2.

Complaining about the mortar scene doesn't really jive. You complain that you died a bunch, which means you either were just terrible or you wanted the developers to make you invincible for that scene?

I usually enjoy these reviews, but when they're bad... they're bad.

I found the review funny as always.

I am a battlefield fanboy at heart and I was hoping to get this game. My view so far is that it has been too dumbed down for the consoles. Battlefield 2 was amazing and BC2 seems like Battlefield 2's awkward cousin trying to be MW2.

Was I the only one who noticed that Yahtzee's accent seems to be slowly turning more australian?

I had to make an account just to say that you sir are a jackass, this isn't funny and neither are you. Start taking your hobbies/career in a different direction. Maybe go back to college, or go to college for the first time. Anything but this bullshit.

And no, I own the game and it is fun, this guy does not know what he's talking about. One of the most addictive multiplayer games out there, in my opinion, far better than MW2 in multiplayer and campaign. Fun and funny. The story shouldn't have to be equal to a oscar winning movie.

Well, I guess I'll have to agree.

I mean, I don't play Shotgun of Shotgun: Shotgun Shotgun 2 anymore, but if we recall that Yahtzee only grades the playability of the single player mode, hell, MW2 WAS better. That is, in my opinion, obviously. And his.

Anyways, great review as always.

I totally concur with the dumbed down bit. I played Vietnam, BF2 and BF2142. Although it's nice to see a new BF version out there, the n00b friendly kniving system is awkward and here and there things feel 'rushed'.

The single player campaign bit should be deleted in an update of the game. Really, what is 'single' player doing in a BF game?? But this is the bit where they are trying to look like MW2 for sure.

Okay, thanks you guys. I have more confidence in buying this game now.

Just you wait. Fable 3 is going with the regenerating health system too.

Yay someone reviews the single player part of a game that everyone buys for the multiplayer. Go back and review the multiplayer from the point of working together with friends. This game is far better and much different than MW2.

Very good work.

The singleplayer was shit

But it is a battlefield game, and the multiplayer did not even get mentioned? For shame. The MP is the best in years

The problem with yahtze's review that i see is that a reviewer like Yahtzee who refuses to play multiplayer cant really review a Battlefield game since the focus is on multiplayer. I for one miss the old battlefields which didnt even have single player campaign. I disagree with the idea that a game needs to be able to stand on single player alone. Look at TF2. A multiplayer-only game that is fucking awesome as well.

How many blurred penises do you go through in an average review? This one seemed particularly high. Do you blur them yourself?

My Gods this one was heavy on the puns/metaphors and does not change my opinion of the game in the slightest, meaning that I didnt really care about the game, nor did I want to play it or its younger brother, before watching the review and, guess what, I still dont want to // If I want to play a good FPS I will turn on TF2 or Strangers Wrath and until otherwise noted that will not change

-M

When he said "I want to play an FPS that allows me to have more guns than eyeballs" I instantly thought on Fallout 3. Okay, Fallout 3 is not an FPS "per se", you have to tinker with all the RPG elements, but that game allows you to have all the weapons you are able to carry (which I discovered the other day was about 12, without overcumbering yourself) and it's a very good example of how to blend FPS and RPG elements into one game.

I don't know if I would count Modern Warfare 1 and 2 as "realistic shooter" since I can play them with the same tactics I use in halflife 2 and still do pretty well.

And this.

Owning (& enjoying) the suite of Battlefield games, I find myself returning to BF2 _much_ more often than BC2. Find me on the Killer Bee server #1 - Dragon Valley! Huzzah!

Dice ought never to have added the inane single-player mode & instead stuck to what they do best - & are _the_ best at doing. There was simply no need to emulate the CoDs, which have deteriorated with every iteration.

Postscript: amusing as the ZP rants are, I'm one of the newfags irked that Yahtzee doesn't 'do' multi-player. I'd surely like to see a ZP on BF2. Nattameen..?

The Battlefield: Bad Company 2 community is really shit. The game itself is near flawless but the community can go fuck itself sideways. It must be all the 8-year old retards from MW2 that hoped over to it. Fucking idiots the whole bunch of them. Buy at your own peril. If you're gonna play it, get a group of your friends togehter. Otherwise you'd be wasting your money. The singleplayer is shit and the community horrible. Spawn camping, vehicle stealing, base rapping, rocket and noobtube spamming, purposly team kills.....

It's a retarded, dumb and really a pathetic community... Shame, the game is awesome

He's pretty much right, the single player is kinda.. well, bad. Leave it to a multiplayer dev to create a crappy single player campaign.
That said, I adore the multiplayer.

This review has made me lose respect for Yahtzee. He's a funny guy but this review goes to show that sometimes he can really miss the point.

I only bought this game for the Multiplayer... Singleplayer was at best OK. Modern Warfare 2 kept me amused for much longer. Awesome thing though is that this is the only video I've watched that properly describes the cons of the game! Good job!

Bought this for PC. It's a fun game if you have some friends to play with. If not, beware of angry teens who will kill you for your car, even when you're on the same team. Also, the bloomin' and dust in this game is horribly overdone.

Let's summarize all the comments: "Derp I'm terrible so that means that the game's bad"

saxton121:
lol that was damn funny

and Yahtzee's right,this whole game is almost an MW ripoff from start..who needs a loading screen with google maps?

Star wars battle field did the same a lot earlier

Haha, I knew that was going to be hilarious. Especially the part about the Russians on another planet.

PSST! GUYS! Battlefield's been doing modern warfare longer than CoD has!

This is my favorite FPS series, Battlefield, and Bad Company 2 is the best FPS I've ever played to date. I love the destructive environment, the weapons, the bullet-drop, the classes, the perks, the vehicles, the squad-respawns, and everything about the game! It's amazing, but the Single Player Campaign is a bit lacking, not as good as BC1. To be honest, when I played the Campaign and finished it, I was contemplating taking it back until I played the awesome Multiplayer.

Realistic? Duuuuude, you know your games better than that right? Right? <>

Play BF2, then BF:BC2. BF:BC2 is a console game, which means it's bouncy as anything. So unrealistic it's painful.

BF2 was solid. I can't describe it except BF2 was good. Unless you're playing on a console in which case. xP

Also, while it is a CoD 4 clone, remember that up till CoD 3, the series was a MoH clone, CoD 4 and up became a Halo clone. So really, everything is just a Halo clone masquerading as "realistic" nowadays. While PC gamers scoff at realistic and moan over our lovely comm rosette turning into.. Into.. Ewies.

Also, no offense, but you really need to play Quake 3. Learn how to move, then learn how to aim. The rail gun was good for that.

Now go play BF:BC2. It's easy man, SVU, run in head shotting everything that doesn't move and putting a shotgun shell into the face of everything that does. Was enjoyable right up until that stupid river which kills you if you land in it. -.-

Alright multiplayer though, enough BF2 vets are around that there's a few people who know how to play.

this was a great review. I say this as a fan of BFBC2; I've found that when it comes to gaming it's good to see that the games you play aren't perfect and though Mr.Croshaw (forgive me if I misspelled his name)is brutal in his reviews, he maintains a policy of brutality with reason and creative language, this meaning that throughout every review that I've seen by Mr.Croshaw there has never been a complaint of his that was invalid or boring. Great Job.

Far too many people took this review as a serious decider in buying the game or not, especially since it is a singleplayer review on a multiplayer series.

Given what DNF turned out to be like, this review is utterly hillarious is hindsight.

Then play the multiplayer, you know, that thing, that the game was made for.
