I don't care how good or bad the music is, it sucks that there is music in multiplayer period, especially in a game where sound can be a crucial component to winning a round.. and no.. you can't turn it off nor can you adjust its volume in relation to other sound effects.

Luckily it's removed in the competition mod though.. with most of the other lame stuff.
the music in cod4 multi doesnt bother me, and i honestly only noticed it about 5-6 weeks after it was released...lol. when i do notice it i kinda like it, makes a change from the typical deathly silence. although an option to turn it off would have been better, rather then no option at all.

I like...

-the immersion. nice effects
-the graphics, looking nice!
- the sound, those guns actually sounded like being fired outside

i dislike...

- the granade throwing, (i throw better with my left arm!!)
- the gun is a bit zoomed in and to the side of the screen for my liking
- takes to many shots to kill a bad guy
- and the bad guys dont move as realisticly as COd4 which has set the bar in a place i would hope other FPS's can match from now on

Multiplayer Beta Program For Battlefield: Bad Company March 17th
DICE Announces Multiplayer Beta Program For Battlefield: Bad Company Shipping June 2008

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – March 13, 2008 – DICE, a studio of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: ERTS) today announced the multiplayer beta test for Battlefield: Bad Company on the Xbox 360™ video game system from Microsoft®. IGN Founders’ Club and IGN Insider will offer keys to members and the public in North America and Europe to participate in the multiplayer beta test starting March 17 provided by IGN’s popular game download site FilePlanet (http://www.fileplanet.com). In addition, keys will also be available through IGN Entertainment’s gaming Web sites including IGN.com, GameSpy, TeamXbox, Planet Battlefield and Voodoo Extreme. Battlefield: Bad Company will launch on the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Xbox 360 in June 2008.

“We are really excited for this beta as it gives us a chance for great feedback on how to polish the experience of our multiplayer mode; Gold Rush,” stated Karl-Magnus Troedsson, Senior Producer for Battlefield: Bad Company. “Battlefield and FPS fans get their first glimpse into how tactical destruction can be applied in multiplayer gameplay. We think offering these two very different maps will give gamers a fantastic experience and some great insight into the game.”

In North America, GameStop will also offer keys on a first come, first serve basis for this Exclusive Beta Xbox Live™ event. With only 5,000 beta keys available at GameStop, gamers should pre-order their copy now at www.gamestop.com/badcompanybeta

The Battlefield: Bad Company multiplayer beta test will give players a chance to return to the battlefield to embark on an exciting mission to capture the spoils of war. Gamers will battle through two different maps, access new infantry kits and vehicles as well as experience the unique tactical destruction in Battlefield: Bad Company that changes the way first-person shooter games are played. With an unlimited upgrade tree and rewards, the multiplayer beta gives players the exhilaration, excitement and fun that awaits them when the final game ships later this summer.

“Xbox Live has a tradition of hosting some of the greatest demo and beta events gamers can play,” said Marc Whitten, General Manager of Xbox Live. “We continue this practice of awesome online gameplay with the new beta of Battlefield Bad Company.”

On the other hand I did pass the screening but they no longer have keys, unless you register/pay for one.

LOL, true. I'm pretty sure there are going to be more. Teamxbox and the other sites that were mentioned before haven't put up their codes as far as I know.

There are 2 rows of guns that say "Buy this weapon on Xbox Live Marketplace".

My mind.

It has been blown.
Wow. "Bad Company."

We dug this grave with nickels and dimes.
