Yes it holds the Battlefield name. It also holds the Bad Company name which made my arse hurt that it was a console only release. The reviews were luke warm for that so we all kept saying for DICE to make a BF3. Well I was watching some vids on gametrailers and saw the Bad Company 2 trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLYdoodBh5w Then I was shocked it was coming out for the PC!!! I don't know what more you could want but it is BF3! Same familiar classes? Check. Epic vehicle action? Check BF2 gameplay in the new Frostbite engine? Check. Here are some more gameplay video's: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbYwVyaoNZk http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g8oLTLImwoY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZXdxVXvB1w Really leave alone BF2 and let it rest in memory. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is the next hl2.net game or BF3.
