This first-person shooter is a sequel to Battlefield: Bad Company, which was released in 2008. This game was released on 2nd March 2010.

While Bad Company 2 is mainly a first-person shooter, it stays true to the mechanics of a sandbox game as it allows you to move around the area freely and control many military vehicles such as APCs, tanks, helicopters and ATVs. When on foot, the player can choose between a bunch of realistic military weapons such as AK-47s, M4-Assault Rifles, Uzis, grenades, Molotov cocktails and much more. The player can walk, sprint, jump, and crouch. The player can fire from the hip when faced with tough conditions. Update your Nvidia driver system to enable the 'Physx' option. The Physx engine puts emphasis on the game's destructible environments and gives you the ultimate gaming experience. Witness falling debris, walls, and fences as you fire your way through the mission. The game's physics engine simulates the destruction realistically. Instead of giving players health checkpoints as seen in the previous Battlefield game, this game has a new feature called 'regenerating health' system. This feature lets the player heal from his or her wounds and regain health by staying in cover and avoiding confrontation. If you are heavily wounded in the game, you will see blood and dirt splatter across the edges of your monitor which adds to the realism of this game.
The game consists of two campaigns: Single-Player and Multi-Player. In the single player campaign, you will play as Preston Marlowe who was also the protagonist of the previous game. The missions are divided into a series of objectives you need to achieve before finishing the level. The storyline is carried by a wonderful narrative via cutscenes that are rendered using the Frostbite 1.5 engine. While your team members can never die, you cannot order them to carry out an objective for you. As a player, you will be accompanied by your members who will provide cover-fire as you carry out your mission. Each mission has a main objective and few optional side objectives. These side objectives add to the fun as they are equally interesting add to the gameplay. You will come across sensor stations that you need to destroy and drive around in military vehicles while battling your enemies. If you run out of ammo, you can refill your weapons by accessing the 'Supply Drop' checkpoint. The 'Supply Drop' checkpoints are basically crates of weapons dropped by your company to help you accomplish your mission. The Multi-player campaign is the USP of this game as you can have hours of fun with your friends and other members on the network. You can be on the same team or battle each other. The multiplayer mode lets you choose from four classes: Medic, Recon, Assault and Engineer. Each class has a different set of weapons and equipment and serves a specific purpose. The multiplayer modes feature 15 vehicles such as a quad bike, patrol boat, Black Hawk, and a ZU-23-2 auto cannon among others. A 'Dog Tag' system is included in this game as you are given your opponent's dog tags as a reward after you kill them using a knife. The multiplayer mode offers five campaign options. The 'Rush' campaign puts you and your friend on the battlefield as you have to keep killing your attackers until all service stations are destroyed. The enemies re-spawn and the level is only finished when you destroy all service stations using explosives or ballistics. The 'Squad Rush' campaign is similar to 'Rush'. However, you have only two squads. One squad tries to defend the territory while the other attacks. The 'Conquest' campaign goes old-school as it borrows many gameplay elements from its predecessor. The players have to capture and defend flags for as long as they can before dying. The 'Squad Deathmatch' campaign puts you and your squad against three other squads. Have fun strategically planning and slaying your enemies for the ultimate victory. The 'Onslaught Campaign' gives the player an objective of capturing certain territories on the map. Up to four players can participate in this campaign. The game is won only when all territories are captured.
The game begins in 1944 where a group of U.S. Commandos infiltrate an Imperial Japanese Navy controlled island to rescue and secure a Japanese scientist who is working on secret a scalar weapon. The commandos manage to secure the scientist after a fierce fire fight. However. While returning, the commandos witness the weapon firing that results into a tsunami. The commandos are killed in the process. In the present day, Preston Marlowe, George Haggard, Terrence Sweetwater and Sergeant Samuel Redford are seen battling Russian forces to secure a scalar weapon device. The squad manages to defeat the Russian forces and escape Russia with the weapon only to realize that it is fake. Back in America, Army General Braidwood is impressed by the squad's work and transfers them into the Special Activities division. He assigns them with a new objective to find and contact Agent James Wyatt, who is codenamed Aguire. Sergeant Redford visibly appears upset as he had hoped to retire after the previous mission in Russia. The squad travels to Bolivia and fight the Columbian forces to finally rescue Aguire. Upon rescuing him, Aguire sends the squad to the Andes to retrieve his scalar technology from a French weather satellite. Marlowe is separated from the squad during an intense battle but manages to locate the data server. He is finally extracted by the others. Marlowe then learns about a man named Arkady Kirilenko, a Russian Army colonel who the squad encountered in Russia. Aguire tells Marlowe that Kirilenko is planning to use the scalar weapon to disable America's power grid and make way for a Russian invasion. The squad is then sent to capture Kirilenko in Chile where he is believed to be hiding. The rest is up to you. But be warned, Kirilenko is a dangerous individual and capturing him will not be easy.
