Reviews and Problems with Battlefield: Bad Company 2 - Vietnam
Showing 1-10 of 20

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: 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: 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: Just received the game for X-mas. I am a long time gamer since the start of gaming, seen it all. Played a bit of the campaign but mostly on X-box live. Lets start with the graphics that everybody is saying so great. My TV is 53" 6 year old HD projection (witch weren't that great to start with) so the graphics look like sh** and I have trouble seeing enemies and tanks even close up some times, you have to look for motion for something to stand out.
Summary: Total waste of money. If I could I would return the game in two seconds. I love BF BC2, but this is a whack expansion. The games never last long enough to have fun, the maps are small, chopper gets shot down way to quickly to have any fun. Save your money for Battlefield 3, this game is enjoyable for about 1 week and then it just gets frustrating to play.
Summary: Out of the blood filled muddy jungles of Vietnam comes BFBC2Vietnam with in all its glory. Even if that glory is overpowered weaponry, no destructible buildings and enough weapon choices to fill up a Mini Cooper's trunk half way. The maps are unbalanced and the M40 seems to be a developed version of the Golden Gun. It does have its good points however such as rich environments and better hit reg (a major down fall in BFBC2).
Summary: I've got 500hrs in BFBC2 and LOVE IT. In BFBC2:Vietnam you can't see what you're shooting at half the time because everything is either mud-brown or olive drab. There's also less than a dozen servers running it at any one time, compared to the hundreds of standard BFBC2 servers. I have no idea why everyone is so gaga over it. The most recent Map Pack (#7, with 4 new maps) has provided WAY more entertainment.
