The Battlefield: Bad Company beta gets a bad review from Amazon Game Room for having green friendlies and red enemies, making it unplayable for people with red-green color-blindness. (Via Instapundit.) Also, the BF:BC beta is getting bad reviews from my friends for being not a very good game. Plus, just about everyone hates EA.
The Amazon review is titled “Gaming while color blind,” but, to be fair, I think most shooters get this right. Halo 3 paints characters red and blue, plus it floats an icon over friendlies. Rainbow Six Vegas 2 has just the icon, which is good enough when it’s not clipped by a doorway. In Gears of War, it’s humans or monsters. Call of Duty 4 does have a floating name in red or green, but you can also look at the uniforms (and half the time you have to anyway).
