Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is a continuation of a great tactical game developed by Digital Illusions in cooperation with Electronic Arts. The first installment was published in 2008 and next to Battlefield 2: Modern Combat, was a successful attempt to transfer the series from PCs to consoles (Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3).
In the second installment of the sub-series, we assume the role of a member of the infamous, eponymous company, consisting of not so exemplary soldiers. As usual, the team found itself at the center of an extremely dangerous events, and again takes part in a large-scale military conflict. To learn the interesting history we have to crawl through, inter alia, snow-capped mountains, dense jungles, and small villages no one has even heard about.
The gameplay does not essentially differ from the original, because the creators decided to continue and expand the best elements of the first installment. So we get quite a few opportunities to use many vehicles which are even more numerous in Battlefield: Bad Company 2. Battles with their participation are spectacular and truly epic. A very impressive arsenal consisting of various weapons and equipment was given at our disposal. The core of gameplay is certainly sowing destruction. Most in-game objects can be destroyed.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for PC, X360 and etc. uses the great potential of the advanced Frostbite graphics engine which was used in the first part of the series.
