June 23, 2008 - Excellent - Battlefield: Bad Company is awesome and there's plenty to do, both by yourself and with friends online.
June 23, 2008 - Excellent - One could easily say that Bad Company expands the genre itself with its combination of great story, destructible environment and surprisingly deep single-mode multiplayer.
July 2, 2008 - Excellent - Between its easy-to-enjoy multiplayer and the romp that is the single-player campaign, Battlefield: Bad Company is an easy game to like. It looks great, has fun characters, a load of interesting weaponry, and works nicely whether you're playing alone or with a squad.

June 23, 2008 - Good - Developer DICE dodges the trap it's laid for itself (i.e., games devolving into grenade-launcher duels) by reducing splash damage. Unless it detonates in his face, a single explosive shell stands a greater chance of dazing an enemy than killing him outright -- one smart move among the many that make Bad Company a very good multiplayer game.
June 26, 2008 - Good - Battlefield: Bad Company is the most console-feeling Battlefield ever produced. It's mindless fun that's not going to take you away from better games like Grand Theft Auto IV or Call of Duty 4, but it's a great way to while away the summer days that are left after you finish all those triple-A titles.
July 18, 2008 - Good - Battlefield: Bad Company is by no means a bad first-person shooter, but it's also far from the best.
Jon Miller
June 27, 2008 - Good - Battlefield Bad Company is the most fun, addictive shooter released so far this year. While far from perfect, the intense sandbox warfare is something that you have to experience.
Barry Keating
June 23, 2008 - Good - Yes, it's a little one-dimensional at times - but which decent shooter isn't a little? Still, even these moments are elevated by the crafty use of destruction and the incredible HDR technology which will turn your head.
June 20, 2008 - Good - In this summer relatively devoid of solid first-person shooters, Bad Company does enough to earn your hard-earned dough.
June 23, 2008 - Good - Battlefield Bad Company might look like just another FPS but it feels very different. The open-world levels make for some unique gameplay opportunities and the multiplayer mode looks like it should gain a very large online community.
