Can someone stand up to the might of Infinity Ward's Modern Warfare 2? Andrew Pfister sat down with DICE and Electronic Arts in Germany to check out the latest build of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 and came away impressed. Based on what Andrew saw, he's pretty sure it's ready to put up a fight with the reigning champ of military shooters.
"The dangling carrot comes in the form of ranks, pins, stars, and insignias -- comprising an array of rewards and recognition for quality play. The marketing quote of the demo was that Bad Company 2 is going to provide "the best all-out war experience," which means that DICE has Modern Warfare in their sights. That's an uphill battle for sure, but it looks like their arsenal is solid enough to make it an interesting fight."
