I keep reading on the internet about how everyone’s sick of Modern Warfare 2 after two months because of campers and akimbo shotguns and an endless list of minor gripes. They all say that they’re moving along to Bad Company 2, which you can see demoed in the rather cool music video above. In case you’re wondering just why that song is so awesome, you’re probably having flashbacks to when it was used in the 300 trailer.
I can’t say that I’m blown away by what I’m seeing in the video. Yes, the ability to pilot vehicles like ATVs and tanks is pretty awesome, and I really like the destructible environments, but do the graphics look pretty shitty to anyone else? Modern Warfare looks like real life most of the time, while the textures here look…lackluster.
That being said, I suppose it’s entirely possible that game play is a lot more fun, and I’ll reserve judgment until I get to play it myself. Can anyone out there back up all the hype surrounding this game? Is it worth my $60?
