Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Onslaught DLC (PS3)


Battlefield: Bad Company 2 has been one of the games of the year so far for me and I have spent a lot of time with the multiplayer. So I was pretty excited to discover that the first batch of DLC (excluding the VIP stuff) was something I could play alongside my friends on.

Onslaught is a 4 player co-operative based download pack in which you take on waves of AI controlled enemies.

The rounds take place on several of the maps already featured in the full game, so you will be in familiar surroundings.

You must move from area to area clearing out enemy troops from each section, hindered by reinforcements parachuting in to help the enemies out.

You are timed overall in how long it takes you to finish a level and your time then goes up onto the leaderboard.

Onslaught is great to play with like minded friends and communication will be key. As long as one of you is left alive the others can respawn on them so tactics do come into play if you find yourself as the ‘Last Man Standing.’

Overall this is a great addition to the existing multiplayer game modes in Battlefield: Bad Company 2 but the price (£7.99) is edging towards the higher end of the scale. If you don’t have friends playing this game I wouldn’t recommend picking this DLC up, however if you’re looking for a new experience on Battlefield with your friends you could do a lot worse.

Rating 7/10
