    This is the final match of the 2010 Online Shooter Showdown. Voting for this match will end on July 3rd, 2010 at 12:01 AM Central.

    Unlike the MMORPG Showdowns, voting in this thread will have a large say in determining the winning game because each review score in the Review Directory will be multiplied by the percentage of votes received here. For example, a game that had a 9 in the Review Directory and won all of the votes here would have an overall score of 9. If a game had a 9 in the review directory but tied here, that game would have an overall score of 4.5 because it only won 50% of the vote. In the event of an overall tie, voting will be determined via comments.

    Oh my... Two of my favourite games... One I've got, and love, another I haven't got, and would love to have...

    I'll come back on this, but for now, Bad Company 2 takes it for me, despite me not having the game, because I've seen it, and I know it, and I think it's better.

    Tough call. I don't see many weaknesses with either game. I am going with Bad Company 2.

    The weakness with AVA is that it doesn't offer as many features as Bad Company 2. Bad Company 2 and AVA are actually really, really similar, except Bad Company 2 also has the Frostbite Engine with destructable environments (and better graphics, despite AVA using UE3), as well as a thousand smaller features to encourage teamwork.

    Also, AVA being a free game means it uses an in-game money system that basically inhibits you from buying any more than 3 weapons for a long time, if you don't cough up real money, or make another account. If you do pay up money, then you can get lots of weapons, as well as a lot of armour and accessories for your character. BC2, being a retail game, only has you buy map packs like most other retail FPSs.

    And ogreman, you've tried to link both games to their proper review page instead of the voting pages, and for the AVA link, you've inserted in 'forum', which makes it broken anyway.

    For now, here's both voting links:
    Vote Alliance of Valiant Arms
    Vote Bad Company 2

    Price does not matter to me if the game is good enough.

    Good final match! Both are awesome shooters. I went with AVA because it is a 100% Internet game and I love escort mode.

    What, so because Bad Company 2 has an EXTRA single player mode, and isn't COMPLETELY online multiplayer, it isn't as good as if it was COMPLETELY online multiplayer and didn't have the single player content? :confused:

    I do agree that Escort mode is pretty cool, but for me, it's for a shameful reason; because I can get a really, really high score on it, much higher than anyone else, from just playing the objective.

    Laughs out loud.
    AVA is great for a F2P MMOFPS , but the free is it's main edge here.

    If you've played both Bad company 2 and A.V.A and you're comparing its gameplay, not price, it must be Bad Company 2- Hands down.

    Free is important here. I think besides Ghost Mode, free is the main reason why Crossfire won last year.

    I suppose... but you still give too much leverage to a free game for being free. I would only count it as one feature in a list of features that make a game good.

    BC2 should win against any free FPS. The production level is night and day..

    Bad Company 2 has the lead (due to reviews) with less than one week to go in voting.

    i prefer to play a free game unless the difference between a similar pay game is not even close. that is clearly not the case here. ava and bc2 are close imo
