Very likely the best team-based first-person shooter currently on the market.
Bad Company 2 incorporates highly destructible environments, four-man squads as part of the overall team (as in real warfare), and realistic effects such as bullets taking time to reach their targets due to distance and bullet drop due to gravity (which makes sniping a bit difficult, but more skillful and tactical than that retarded quickscoping nonsense).
Set in the near future with an array of modern weaponry to choose from, players have access to four "kits," which include: Assault, Medic, Engineer, and Recon.
With very large maps and the option to engage in vehicular combat, players cannot adhere to a single style of play, whether they like it or not. Despite this reality, players still like to use the Medic kit because you don't have to reload as often with an LMG; and they still use the Recon kit because sniping doesn't require too much effort on their part.

The next generation of the Battlefield serious, rumored to be the final stage before the mysterious Battlefield 3 is announced.
Bad Company 2 features the new Frostbite 2.0 allowing for even more destructible environments, meaning no longer can you take down a full wall by one grenade, only a small hole is opened up.
Bad Company 2 is also the first M rated game in the Battlefield serious, due to the language and blood.
It's also the first Frostbite game that will be available for PC. A beta of it is released on November 19th, but for Playstation 3 only, meaning the forums were flooded with whining Xbox 360 players. The PC beta also comes out sometime in December.
The game is scheduled to be released on March 2nd, 2009.
Battlefield Bad Company 2 is rumored to be able to compete with Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2.
A first person shooter game, set in a modern warfare context, popular for its online play. Released by EA and created by the game studio DICE.
Person 1: I love Modern Warfare 2, it almost makes me feel like someone cares about me.
Person 2: Dude, Modern Warfare 2 is like Battlefield Bad Company 2's retarded cousin.
The game Call of Duty try hard fans hate to admit is actually better than Call of Duty. This is because the game has an destructible environment which means if you blow a grenade up in a house, it would be altered.
You can even make your camping spots, and YES, camping is mandatory in this game. It is actually the closest you will come to a real-like war FPS game. The it actually has gravity, and if you want to camp and get a head shot from long range, you would have to aim above someone's head.
Call of Duty Fan: Dude! I just got a 31:0 K/D Ratio in MW2!
Old Call of Duty Fan: Dude, I will not worship you unless you do that shit in Battlefield Bad Company 2.
