Summary: I bought this game with the expectations that it would be as fun as battlefield 1942 but with updated graphics. Wrong and Wrong. The graphics are on par with the predecessor and the game is rather annoying. All of the maps are visually the same - jungle after jungle with a few buildings. I have no doubts that in 6 months EA with release a $30 expansion pack because these maps are lacking.
Summary: I really like the BF1942 series and i looked forward to this game launch for a long time. I bought it on the first day of release and, boy, was THAT a mistake! I should have waited for a demo to have seen how buggy this game was. I have a fairly fast system- an AMD 2700+ / Nvidia chipset/ Geforce 4 Ti 4400 graphics card/ cable modem. Its not the fastest system on the planet, but it's played every other game i have tried without much lag or any problems... until now!

Summary: I am a HUGE fan of the BF1942 Franchise. Not surprisingly, I was excited to get my hands on Battlefield Vietnam. Now, I know my computer is antiquated compared to the systems coming out today (DELL, Windows ME, 1.5GHz, 128MB Nvidia GeForce 4600 video card, 512 PC800 RAM, 80GB HD), but BF1942 generally ran well at 1200x1600x32 with high texture detail and high sound detail.
Guess I should have listened to some of these reviews.

Summary: This game stinks. I have Pentium IV 2.66mhz, 512ram, 128 NVIDIA Geforce FX video card, and DSL and this game stinks. Heres what is good: 1. Great soundtrack. The music is awesome. 2. The idea. the idea is great. The way it plays out is not. I first decided to play the single player mission to get the hang of the game. The graphics weren't very good and even this part of the game lags. The movements are jumpy and it takes along to load.
Summary: Graphics are awesome but it is very demanding on your CPU. Anything lower then a P4 3.0 and 1gig of memory you find game play very laggy at times. The weapons models look very realistic. Single player mode is fun but will become boring after a few hours. The AI are lazy and tend to stand around. Planes and choppers are very user friendly. Anyone can fly them. Online play. If you have young children beware.
Summary: The first time I heard of this game I thought " finally a shoot'em game set in Vietnam and since it is being made by EA it should great." I was wrong, very wrong. This game is so buggy everytime I blow someting up the screen screws up and I have to push Escape,go the main menu and press escape again to get back to the game so screen will be fixed. This usually works 75% of the time. And sometimes the screen just screws up and have to do that process I just explained.
Summary: J'ai trouver BFV pas tès bien. Les grafismes, les sons, les armes et les véicules sont bien OK. Mais le mode de jeu avec les drapeau est trés bof et lassan, même sur le net. Un mode avec missions et objectifs autre que drapeau aurai été le bien venu et aurai rendu le jeu bien. Je pensse avoir fait une erreur en l'achetant.
