Battlefield Bad Company 2 Multiplayer

So after embracing myself in the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 realm for a while its an all new experience its like an all new world of BC2 this is where the game shines. I dare say this is the only place it shines, but I promised my therapist I would think happy thoughts so lets just say it shines brighter here, much much brighter.

As you login to your EA account to play the multiplayer, BC2 has adopted what practically every other game seems to have adopted as of late the inclusion of a leveling system uniquely you start from level 0 instead of level 1. The player has 4 different game types to chose from:

Well I finally got my fangs into Battlefield: Bad Company 2 after all the hype and the fact about all my Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 companions basically bailed on me and left me to the comfort of random people.  So after being loaned a Bad Company 2  account to test out the game I decided to get my own copy but that was solely due to the multiplayer aspect.
