    I love this game. I think the battlefield series really gives you a taste to how comanders run things. 1942 was really good but compared to vietnam its nothing. The only thing that I think would have made it better was a list of comands that you could say to your platoon. The comands they have allready are just the basic, but o well.

    This game is awesome! I love the whole BF 1942 series, I have played desert combat and secret weapons and loved them all. I've always wanted to play a vietnam version of Battlefield, I never got the chance to try out Eve of Destruction and now I dont need to because I have BFV. It's just awsome. It was pretty much every thing I was looking for. If anybody is a Battlefield fan This game is awesome!

    This game is not perfect, but comes pretty darned close. Even maps that are basically only infantry running around are pretty fun now because you can sneak around through the foliage, setting booby traps, etc. The variety of gameplay is already amazing and will only get better as new patches come out that include other vehicles, etc. The level designer and mod creation kit that come with This game is not perfect, but comes pretty darned close.

    Here's the deal don't listen to the kids who cant play with trees in the way. Gameplay has changed for the better. You have to be sneaky now. And it is more fun once you get the hang of it. I guess its a little too much for the kids who play. lol. Buy it trust me.

    This game is still rather buggy in its first release, but rest assured; it is sheer brilliance. It combines a number of new features that are incorporated in previous mods, and it adds enough new stuff to make it worth the money. The music is great, the atmosphere is fantastic, and the foliage really adds to it all.

Also - I am inclined to agree with the 1UP review, the interactivitiy with the atcual environment is nil - tanks can't push over trees, they get stuck; napalm doesn't do anything to foliage, etc. Destructable terrain would have been a huge plus for a game that is already bordering on greatness. All in all, well done. Expand

    It works ok on my system for a 1.2ghz celeron 256 ram and radeon 9200, it only shut down when i tried to play an unfinished created level. THE GAME IS AWESOME THO! The planes arent useless you just suck. even if they are hard to use its still cool flying around, and the levels are massive its a great game!

    I was somehow torn between the 8,9 and 10 but I decided on a 8.9 beacause the game somtime acts sluggish in you'r computer even though you have a good graphics card. Some of the levels are recycled wich make you feel as if your ripped off. The a.i is te dumbest ever. But the games music rocks the graphics are good and a lot of the times the game really makes you feel sucked in.

    The Jungle scenery is great and really effects how you play and what you base your strategy on. The graphics look well polished and the new addition of helicopters is a really good gameplay addition. My only issue was the crummy AI and the buggy physics. Otherwise, a great multiplayer game and it has definitely earned the "Battlefield" name.

    Although some of the weapons appear unbalanced, and the AI is poor if you want to practice offline, this game should still be considered a classic and a must in the battlefield series. The best part of the game is napalming a section of the jungle or towing a light tank with a helicopter.

    These guys wrote up a bunch of cliches and called them reviews. The truth is, they said the same thing about Quake 3, which everyone loved. These people think that the only way to be creative is to find problems with the game. But they're wrong. Also, the guy from 1UP is a dufus. I don't believe his 680 ping "I killed everyone. It was so easy" story. A total lie. Watch out for These guys wrote up a bunch of cliches and called them reviews. The truth is, they said the same thing about Quake 3, which everyone loved.

    Being this game is alot like BF1942, Most people will enjoy this game. It has a few very good points to it, the most notable is the music. All the music from that era gives the game a new feel. Also the graphics are way better which you will see in the explosions which are more realistic than just a big flash. You see a fireball. Gameplay is the same except there is no capaign in SP.

With 14 maps which really set the mood in different areas...your job is still capturing waypoints, but the AI (With a patch) will seem smarter this time around. A worthy succesor to The bf series.

    The graphics are improved in comparison to "1942" and there is more customization. However, the feeling from the first game is very different and it's slower than its predecessor. Still a great and fun game to play online every once in a while.

  1. It really does a fantastic job at letting you in on the Vietnam era, and I’m sure that after a few patches it will be even better.
  2. I think it needs a little more oomph on more scenarios and the detail in the graphics. Also, conquering control points over and over gets too repetitive after long play.

    An incredibly good time if you can find an amicable crew of fellow soldiers. [May 2004, p.106]
