I’m not a Call of Duty junkie, but I do like shooters. I think Black Ops looks as interesting as the next guy. I finally played Modern Warfare (the 1st one) and have to play #2.
All that being said, one of the games we did get sent for review at launch was Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and I really enjoyed it.
I had played Bad Company 1 and thought it was decent, but nothing to remember. The amount of polish that has gone into Bad Company 2 really surprised me and made it feel like a top tier shooter almost immediately. The story wasn’t bad (I would have MUCH preferred an alien/artifact angle, but I’m a Sci-fi dork) but the environments, weapons and sounds were absolutely wonderful.
