Summary: Worth it in every way, great DLC, and a great game! So much better than COD a.k.a Call of garbage, you know, that game that requires no thinking to play, where you can just run around with the same machine gun, doing the same routine to rack up kills... Yeah, I couldn't stand it so I'm so glad that my cousin introduced me to BFBC2. And besides any noob can pick up COD and run around with a machine gun, but you can tell when someone sucks in BFBC. Just saying...
Summary: Bad Company 2 takes the FPS genre and brings some refreshing changes into the mix, especially with its multiplayer component. The campaign is fun, the story isn't fantastic but there are some interesting sections to play through and the characters have some mildly amusing dialogue, although not as much as the first game. The online multiplayer is where this game really impresses.
Summary: Out of this great multiplayer expansion, I lament only two things: Lack of weapons and the Huey has the armor of a soda can. Maps are good, but Cao Son Temple and Phu Bai Valley are camper's paradise. The lack of weapons really hurt this game, and if there were even just two more weapons in each class, and you had to unlock them, this would easily be a 10. But Hill 137, however, is.... I can't even describe how gorgeous and amazing this map is.
Summary: Best DLC of last year. Easily worth the 1200MS points. More of Battlefield's unique brand of strategy and mayhem. The graphics seem to look better than in the original game. The sounds and soundtrack are fantastic. 5 maps, of which two are outstanding (only one poor one in my opinion). If you like Battlefield get this now.
Summary: This DLC shouldn't be considered an add-on, it should be considered a whole new game. Vietnam takes the team-work based fun from the standard game and fuses it with its all new atmosphere. The DLC looks quite amazing and the world and first person models look fantastic. Along with this DLC you get a number of new maps. Along these new features includes commentary taken from real life news broad casters and soldiers.
Summary: cream of the crop, this game is breathless, its too addicting, but even though the story is weak it makes up for the multiplayer which is hard to get off your seat, the framerate are find, battlefield veterans will find this game very good, the only problems i encountered are lag and its underrated status, its a great buy
Summary: Battlefield Bad Company series is my second favourite shooter behind Gears of War, and this add on pretty good. However the Vietnam setting and weaponry is so frustrating at times, as all the foliage has turned it into a campers paradise. Also the US soldiers are far more heavily armed than the N.V.A, and leveling up of weapons is a mystery! If it was 800 points then I would have given it an eight, but there isn't enough for me to justify buying it for 1200 points.
Summary: The expansion brings everything that was already good in Bad Company 2, only with a different guise. New trophies, pins, weapons, vehicles and stages will keep veteran players occupied for a long time. And the Vietnam feeling while you are on tank, listening to musics from the past, is an extra that turns the expansion a must.
Summary: I have been playing battlefield since 1942 came out and since then the franchise has lost a bit of its luster in my eyes. Battlefield 2142 was a sham and battlefield 2 had an extremely short lifespan thanks to COD 4 (online multiplayer wise). Even Battlefield BFBC2 felt a bit rehashed. With Vietnam all my angst has been washed away. I have a blast every time I play.
Summary: To clarify, I don't think this "stole" anything from Black Ops, although they have similar settings, that's about it. While this is only an expansion, it definitely feels like the more authentic Vietnam experience. Nothing like flying a copter into battle with Ride of the Valkyries blaring. While I played BFBC2 alot at launch and the months right after, I hadn't touched it in a long while.
