Be known by the company you keepEver since I played Battlefield 1943 and later Battlefield 2142, I wasn’t a huge fan. Sure, the multiplayer action was good – vehicular combat is always nice, but overlarge maps meant you needed to have at...

Early on in Battlefield: Bad Company 2, during a mission that the ESRB has somewhat spoiled, you hear an absolutely frightening and ominous sound. Its inspiration can easily be found in things like a foghorn or the tripod from Steven Spielberg's...
