Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (6 ):

This mobile version of BATTLEFIELD: BAD COMPANY 2 has impressive graphics and manages to capture the same kind of feeling and intensity of its console game counterparts. However, because it is such a close representation of the other versions of the same title, it struggles to mimic the same kind of intuitive control scheme. This app has to rely exclusively on touch-screen controls, which is difficult to do for any first-person shooter. That is why this genre is rare in the app market. It's nearly impossible to manage all the controls (weapon selection, aiming, moving, shooting, etc.) without players obscuring the screen with their hands. Likewise, it can sometimes be time consuming to trigger the desired control, resulting in vulnerabilities for the player. In short, this app looks nice but has not perfected how to control an FPS on a touch-screen device.
