Is Battlefield: Bad Company a Crysis-beater?

DICE shows off its Frostbite engine in latest Battlefield trailer

After what seems like a long silence, DICE and Electronic Arts have released a new Battlefield: Bad Company trailer, the single-player-based, ultra-destructive Battlefield on consoles.

It's looking damn good. As you can see in this Swedish-filled dev trailer, there's a massive, sandbox world lined up for the shooter and everything explodes and falls apart nicely, which seems to be the big 'hook' for the new Battlefield.

As we know from the previous trailer, Bad Company's characters are also sporting some impressive facial animation and a pretty cinematic solo campaign seems to be in store. No word yet on a traditional Battlefield multiplayer mode, though.

The inevitable question for the comments field though, is does it look as pretty as Crisis? Battlefield's certainly got the whole tree-shooting thing going on, but we're not expecting visuals on par with hi-spec PCs just yet.
