Judging Battlefield-Bad-Books by their Covers (Battlefield: Bad Company)


12th Oct 2010, 11:35 AM

Battlefield Bad Company works well because it revels in the simplicity of the main characters and their relationships between one another.

You're effectively Captain Cookie Cutter, just a soldier, a regular man o' war. But then, you're thrust into the ragtag group of misfits, Battlefield: Bad Company, and you can see why the writers decided you'd be better off not talking so much.

You've got Haggard, the redneck-type who loves demolition and general whoopage. Then there's Sweetwater, the tech genius. And to top it all off, there's the shamed commander who is *thiiiis* close to retiring.

It doesn't even care, in fact, it revels in the cliche, and it works all the better for it. You know the characters are going to bounce off one another, and practically predict what each will do in any given scenario, but in the same way 80's cartoons have a predictable charm, Bad Company is always hilarious company.

Now all they need is a magical talking animal sidekick, and they're sorted.

The guy with the six shooter kind of looks a character from Red Dead Redemption...
