Summary: I was playing BFBC2 for a while. Now waiting on BF3 to come out. In the meantime I'm playing battlefield vietnam. My all time favorite battlefield game! For some reason EA has not been able to bring back the elements of this game that make it so great in subsequent games. From the vietnam era music and intros - to the battlefields. It literally feels like you are fighting back in history - although you get to respawn :). Sounds are great.
Summary: this is a fantastic game. incredibly fantastic. spendidly fantastic. this game, some may say is just a lame knock-off of the 2002 hit, "battlefield 1942". they are almost entirely correct, only this time there are more helicopters, fewer germans and much more badass music. despite the similarity in the two titles, BFV has the feel of an entirely new game and not some kind of glorified expansion pack.
Summary: Battlefield: Vietnam is a very good game, make no mistake about that. The fast paced gameply, some truly awe-inspiring aireal battles and massive firefights make for a definitive multiplayer experience. Pros: -Lots of weapons and vehicles -Enough maps to keep u occupied for a very long time -Massive firefights -Huge air battles -3d warfare - infantry, boats, tanks, and aircraft fighting on the same battlefield at the same time Cons: -Aircraft controls are a little more...
Summary: First off I want to say that I've never played BF 1942 and this is my first PC shooter. But I'm no noob to the genre and I know a good game when I see one. This game is one of the most fun games I've ever played. Overall good maps, solid game play, and pretty good graphics make this game great. Pros: ~Tons of vehicals(Helis, planes, tanks, jeeps, a moped, etc...) ~weapons are fairly balanced.
Summary: Hello, I got this game for my birthday several months ago. Ever since, I have been having a great time. It is an AMAZING environment to play in. Imagine, walking around with an AKMS on the Ho-Chi-Minh Trail, with dozens of US Special Forces troops walking through the lush jungle (and when I say lush, I mean LUSH... you can barely see ten feet through the trees), trying to secure control points and keep them from taking your bases.
Summary: Battlefield Vietnam, I have to say, rivals it's older brother Battlefield 1942. The single greatest new edition is being able to play music in any vechile. You can customize it by adding your own tracks as well :) In those long online games this really comes in handy. Alas no campaign mode = - * For most of what they lost they make up for it in multiplayer. Spawn points are key and you must capture and hold them at all costs.
Summary: This so far is my favorite PC Game. Everything seems to flow much faster than in 1942. Sniping is now a dream come true, helicopters make the battles at least ten times better, and the jets are just plain fun! I also enjoy the vietnam era weapons much more. Map wise, you can do urban battles, maps with lots of water, or woods maps. I say woods maps because only one map and it's variation feel like jungle to me.
Summary: Alright everybody, do not give heed to those who bash this game. BFV is FAR better than any Battlefield game that has come out. I'm just going to list the pros and cons, but for those of you who need to see computer specs before believing, here you are: I'm running a Pentium 4, 2.4 GHz, 512Mb of RAM, and a 64Mb ti4200 Geforce 4 graphics card. Yeah, I know, that's kind of a low end system now, but I am able to run the game with almost no trouble at all.
Summary: For those unfamiliar with the basics of the game, Battlefield Vietnam is a multiplayer-focused shooter that allows you to fight the battles of the Vietnam War against computer-controlled bots or up to 63 other players. In the conquest mode, which is the primary mode of play here just as in Battlefield 1942, players divide up into two teams, one for the US and its Vietnamese allies and the other for the North Vietnamese and its Vietcong allies.
Summary: Many of the reviews that you will see here are biased due to the fact that their hardware doesn't perform the way they want it to. Furthermore, they will proceed to review a game based on such merits vs the games actual advantages and disadvantages. I don't like to compare this game to BF1942 because I think there are enough differences to seperate the 2. Naturally people don't want to pay for something if they don't have to ....
