Shopto has started an unbelievable weekly special, offering the newly released BattleField Bad Company for only £28.99, which is £9 cheaper than anywhere else and for an EA game, that is truly special, as they're normally around the £40 mark for a while.

Don't forget that Shopto will also guarantees that 99% of there will arrive the following morning, providing you've completed checkout by 5:30pm today, so you could be playing this by tomorrow morning and all weekend with no delivery costs.

Finally, don't forget to go through Quidco to receive a further £1.16 in cashback, making this just £27.83.

Hope that helps.

The reviews have also been very favourable, even the notorious IGN and Gamespot have awarded the game 86% and 85% respectively and by there standards, that can be quite impressive, as I've played some fantastic games that were given a lower score.

I don't understand the cold votes! This is far cheaper than elsewhere and I was about to post it myself. Good spot, realfriendlyman.

brilliant game, wish the price would drop on the 360 though, £40 is too much!

Good find, heat added ;-)

Yeah definitely, I'm a bit surprised the PS3 version is cheaper because they're normally equal to or more expensive but I'm glad it didn't have a pricedrop because I only received my xbox 360 version from Shopto as of yesterday and I'm yet to play it. :giggle:

Is this game an good now? I played the demo and it was awfull and very glitchy. Nothing compared to COD 4?
I love first person shooters so if anyone can tell me in the final product is sorted I'll order. :thumbsup:

Well this is what IGN said (probably the most reputable reviewing site ever), so there does seem to be some flaws but it makes up for it in other areas:


IGN SCORE: 86%
There are plenty of flaws that FPS gurus will be able to nitpick about, but Bad Company delivers a fun-filled single-player campaign with a multiplayer component that can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the best in our industry.

Dont forget if you have it, you can use £2 voucher from eurogamer

Great spot, almost bought this for £30 from ebay lastnight! Cheers OP

Thank OP, ordered

I have this game, it is awesome , the multiplayer is the best and kicks COD4 in the knackers.

I don't know why people keep comparing this to COD4. While COD4 is very good, it offers nothing new in terms of innovation to the industry, and if anything is only a refinement of previous FPS games at that. The BF franchise on the other hand has continuously proved to be a very dynamic and innovative one and has a much higher strategic value overall, and that's fact- not opinion.

That's understandable for the saving but if you want to get a asian vesion and wait longer with the possibility of paying customs tax (HK is the fake capital of the world by the way :p) then it's up to you to decide if it's worth it depending on the saving.

Otherwise, this looks like the best deal in Europe and from what I've seen on another forum, this is the UK version. :thumbsup:

Saw this in currys in N.I (instore) at 39.99 with 50 percent off so it came to less than 20 pounds in anyone is interested.

This game is pretty good but it's no cod 4 killer as some (elsewhere) have said. It's way too linear at most points and during close combat the action's field of view feels too tight so it's very un-rewarding sometimes..

The environments, altho appear initially to be huge, are actually restrictive as there are several no go areas of the map necessary to include due to the games highly controlling gameplay in terms of where you can actually go.

Graphics are very good and destroyable (to a degree) surroundings make it mostly fun to play . It could have been great but you really feel the 'make it good but not too good' influence of EA games, which seems crazy but the fact it's over-scripted let it down.

Great game. Damn good fun. And will be even better when the patches arrive.

Drop by ]OAPs.org and/or ]FRAG if you want some like-minded grown-ups to play with/against.

Multiplayer is where it's at. That's what it's all about.

Great game and price but I only ever buy online titles like this on the 360 for the proper voice comms and the integrated friends list / party / joining game / lobby systems. Plus all my mates have 360s anyway....

WHat this has that cod4 4 dosnt is destructable scenary but more importanbtly vehicles.

This game is much better fun than cod4 in my opinion...

ordered, cheers :thumbsup:

I've got to disagree with that. I stopped caring about the battlefield series after 1942 precisely because of a lack of innovation. Battlefield 2? A copy of the best mod, Desert Combat. Battlefield 2142? A copy of battlefield 2, but set in the future. (Including most of the bugs that they didn't even fix in Battlefield 2!!!)

You may disagree with what I'm saying, and it's your right to do so, but I think I've shown that there is plenty of room for disagreement, and that we're still well into the realm of opinion, rather than 'fact'.

I do think that Battlefield Heroes looks like an interesting idea, although I don't know anything about the gameplay. The execution is certainly an interesting step.

Ignore all that, and play the multiplayer !

Come on now, I've been following BF from the days of the beta. BF2 may have picked up on some concepts from DC, but nonetheless seemed to be a natural progression. No innovation? How about Arty Strikes and Choppers that are actually usable as well as the squads concept. The engine was a new one too. Of course some are expansions rather than whole new games but these are widely acknowledged. Even 2142 (as you mention being a copy of BF2) had new concepts such as the Titan and drop-pods. If these are not innovative concepts (and that being fact as no others have such concepts, then I don't know what innovative is).

great game picked up the gold edition from friend at ea andn has been my game of choice gr8 price

Word. I have the Gold Edition and it is truly class. Cost me £50 reduced from £55 so a bit of a bargain.

I have to disagree, it only has one game type online compared to CoD4's 10+

GTA4 has 15- doesn't make it the best there is however.

Plus its one GREAT multiplayer as opposed to 10+ medium to good. And the free range of the multi on this means it might as well be 100 mp games.

Ordered at 4:30 today and was dispatched by 5:00 pm, should have it tomorrow.

can't fault shopto for their service :thumbsup:

I just think that there should be more than one game type as they can get very repetitive.
I'm not saying its not good online just saying that they should have put allot more in.

Great game and great deal!

I cant state just how much the destructible environments change gameplay, its always funny turning around and realising the wall you were using for cover is no longer there... :thumbsup:

anyone know completion time on this game in single player? i am tempted to buy but i've really only room for one online shooter and at the mo that's warhawk.

if the single player campaign can be blasted in 6 hours or something it's a rental for me.

When does Shopto's weekly offers run from? Eg Sun to Mon, Mon to Sat etc etc

i love this game, hasnt been out of my 360since mon

good price for it heat added
