5 It's the little things that make it GREAT!!!chicka | 09/04/2010 | See all chicka's reviews (1)I dont want to compare BBC2 to MW2 and MAG but the comparisons are inevitable so forgive me when they are made. I will admit my colours are firmly nailed to the BBC2 banner.The thing I love about BBC2 is that it highlights good teamwork and rewards it. I dont get that impression from MW2. I think DICE and UBISOFT have made the right moves in trying design a community that is built on people helping each other rather than everyone for themselves. The teamwork aspect is highlighted by one feature that MW2 doesnt have - vehicles with multiple seats. There is nothing better than jumping in a chopper as the fourth person and youre an engineer which means youre not just a passenger. You can pull out your trusty rattle-gun and repair the chopper as it flies around and you get reward points for your trouble. Pretty much the only time you are a passenger in a vehicle is on a quad bike or sea-doo and then youre just catching a ride into the battle.And what a battle!!!The standout in this game is the sound. The crack thump of a round wizzing past your head the huge explosions which more often than not are bringing down buildings. Ive been very close to explosions as an engineer in the army and the only thing you arent getting from the great sound in this game is the wind being knocked out of you. The talk of explosions beings me to something else MW2 doesnt have; DESTRUCTION. How many times have you been playing MW2 and a sniper is barricaded in a house with great fields of fire and you cant do anything about it just get shot in the head. In BBC2 you bring the house down around him!!! I think the destructible environment is a huge advantage over MW2. MAG tried it but only went part way making objective targets destructible. I liken it to the rise of racing games with destructible cars like GRID DIRT2 and NEED FOR SPEED: SHIFT. The incumbent in that arena was Gran Turismo (no destruction) as COD (no destruction) is in this arena. GT5 developers have delayed release to include full vehicle destruction. I think we will see the same happen in the next iteration of Modern Warfare. If not they stand to lose even more ground to the likes of BBC2.The maps are huge and well designed. They look beautiful and varied. If you like sniping you finally have a realistic distant to shoot over. Not only that but the teamwork aspect rises to the top here as well; spotting. Snipers in real life arent just there to shoot guys from a mile away they are recon. Spotting targets for others to take out. I think the best thing about the maps is that you dont just want to play the same class on every map. Some are good for sniping others are full of vehicle which is good for engineers.The low point is the single player mode. It is a little glitchy in places and the story doesnt always flow well but the one liners made me laugh. The campaign doesnt really prepare you for the multi player mode as it doesnt teach you how to do all the things that you can do in multi player. But thats half the fun. Jumping into your first chopper taking off and immediately going straight backwards out of the field of play. Frustrating but fun. Its a challenge to fly the choppers which is what you want out of a game. A challenge.I think the graphics are close to being on par with those of MW2. The weapon physics are great and to my knowledge very realistic. The gadgets and perks are well thought out and not just thrown-in to give you an advantage for having reached a high level.Overall I really enjoyed the single player and Im loving the multi player. For me the teamwork - sound effects - vehicles and DESTRUCTION are what sets it apart and above the others.
