MW2 > BC2.
Actually able to play. Realism? Who gives a shit. you want realism, you'll fuck off shitty arcade games and play Arma2 or Battlefield 2. And Realism? Really? infantrymen who suddenly know how to drive tanks, fly attack helo's, and fire them at the same time, despite having crews of 2-4? Come off it.
HAWKX does Flight Combat better, despite the relatively poor graphics and lack of realism in respect to damage. Arma2 does Tank battles better. MW2 and Medal of Honor both do better for BC2.
If you're too shit that unloading a full assault rifle or SMG magazine won't kill someone, frankly you shouldn't be allowed near a shooter.
Bad Company was one thing only - a sandbox produced with a mediocre story-line and no depth to characters (even worse than MW2 - I had no empathy with Fags and whatever their names were, whereas I was pissed off to fuck when Shepherd killed Ghost and Roach).
I agree with 5tons points -
Aiming points don't do relative damage - putting a round in your arm is going to put you in shock as much as a trauma to the chest. One in the leg is going to drop you. if you're going to factor in "true effects" such as this, then go the full way.
Movement - there's rattle and roll with the weapon, but you're still a perfect marksman when you're standing/crouching
Prone - so, the basic position from which everyone learns during basic training is the most accurate shooting position is ignored? Again, they want their cake an eat it, and unfortunately, it doesn't work.
Snipers - most horrendous idea to ever get put into this travesty of a game. In MW2 The 50 cal, and Intervention are the most powerful weapons in the game when used correctly, and only one of those becomes a semi efficient no-scope killer - at which there are a damn sight more effective things you can use, such as the FAL for single shot, FAMAS for burst, and SCARH/UMP for Auto.
As fo rmW2 issues - Dual wield 1887's annoyed the fuck out of me - as a point of protest, I never use Akimbo 1887's - i prefer the FMJ Striker anyway. Then again, the game never really professes to take itself too seriously unlike the first one - seriously, satellite crash, recover military hardware, and (the best bit) a Terrorist Attack that was designed to have the Russians think it was the Americans by leaving an American at the scene, and the CIA only placing the American there to discover the motives for the attack, followed by a General who instigated WW3 causing millions more deaths to avenge the lives of those lost during the nuclear attack 5 years before.
10th presitge? What is that really in the scheme of things? Fuck all. It gets you a shiny badge - I know that I only prestige to see if I can advance faster than I did before. Personally, I much prefer getting my accuracy up. On one of my most recent accounts, I went from 17% accuracy before attempting to master the M86, RPD, and AUG - it dropped to 9%. i then went onto assault rifles, and mastered the FAL, Scar, FAMAS and TAR21 - getting it up 14, then the SMG mastering dropped it 11, and sniper has got it back to 13 recently.
It's not a black and white question really, there are different shades of anal probing,
a rectum spectrum, if you will
