The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Grenade launcher? Check. Large gun? Check. Huge smoking crater where an enemy use to be? Stunning.

Not long ago I decided to pick up BF:BC. Boy did I do something good because karma was on my side. I couldn't stop playing. The game has good humor and great characters who spread the said humor around. For example, one of the characters, Haggard, runs down a hill into a nuetral country after gold firing his shotgun into the air yelling, "There's gold in them hills!" Later after catching up with your redneck friend he says he'll scout ahead only to have Sweetwater(one of your squadmates) say,"Sarge Haggards running away again!" To which Sarge replies,"Shit, look at that." Sweetwater then says, "Yeah, I know he runs like a girl." But enough about the humor. Let's talk about the explosions. Taking a few things of C4 and planting them around a building then detonating them results in a beautiful explosions destroying almost everything of the building. Basically the big point of the game is described as 'Blow Stuff Up And Have Fun Doing It.' BF:BC has more of a prevalent story than any other BF, and it's pretty good. The main villain, the Legionnaire, doesn't really make much of an appearance until the last few parts of the game, and the end of the game just kinda goes, "So, this is what happened, now go outside and get exercise." The enemy AI isn't exactly the best. To be frank, they're about as dumb as my left foot. But they will attempt to flush you out from behind your cover. They'll shoot grenades from their grenade launchers at you, but they will stand out in the open alot of the time. You, however, have the ability to heal yourself every few seconds, via the Self Injector. A little shot like gadget that fills your health all the way up, your comrades, don't have to be protected either like many other FPS. They're pretty much useless unless they should happen to kill a few enemies, otherwise they're just there for the humor and to watch you blow things up. The mulitiplayer aspect is good. There however, is only one mode, and that's Gold Rush. Although more modes are promised to be uploadable in the future. BF:BC may be a bunch of misfit guys deemed expendable by the U.S. Military, but it is definitly one of the best Battlefields games I've ever played.
