'Bad Company' not an elite squad, but still finds the target

The allure of most military shooters is assuming the helm of an elite, highly-skilled soldier. Then there's Battlefield: Bad Company.

In Electronic Arts' army caper, you join a crew of military rejects in a satisfying campaign that grows more engaging once taken online.

As Preston Marlowe, you're assigned to the 222nd Army Batallion, B-Company, a squad of screw-ups and troublemakers chosen to serve as a first wave of offense. B-Company is in the middle of a futuristic war against Russia. The team eventually goes AWOL after discovering stashes of gold throughout the region.
