ButBeing a fan of original "Vietnam" it is difficult not to like this addition. Yes, some very good maps were not remade to the new engine. But still this DLC has updated versions of maps that not only give that nostalgic feeling but also provide tens of hours of unforgettable gameplay. Additions to the maps and extra weapons are well balanced. Vehicles control is smooth and lets a constant player of 'Bad Company 2' or a 'Vietnam' veteran get into a game without difficulty.
A hope for another such addition to Vietnam period on a newer engine never leaves my heart. And if it happens, my wallet will support EA again!… Expand
Average User Score: 3.4Jun 27, 2013Well, since there are lots of negative reviews already I have to add some positive things that I noticed.
During presentations I wasn'tWell, since there are lots of negative reviews already I have to add some positive things that I noticed.
During presentations I wasn't stunned by the level of graphics, so I didn't expect much. The visual part will not make a gamer happy who has spent time playing Battlefield 3 or Crysis 2. But yet it gave enough detalisation so you could imagine yourself being away on a deserted planet. Face animations have no 'life', still I don't think it's a big problem.
Sound effects is important part for a game in a universe of Aliens. It seems that music and sound is not what is usually discussed in reviews, but when these elements are done badly you can't miss such flaws. Using rifles made me want to skip all shooting sections. It is sound that ruined 'feeling' of a weapon. Too bad, because the design of weapons was not that bad.
The design of levels is poor, 4 gamers on a level would feel lack of space. Despite the fact that it usually took me around 20-30 minutes to complete a level, everything that you keep in mind after completing one was running, shooting, running, loading.
There was only one time when I was in a team of 4 players. Thing is that I started playing two weeks after the game's release date. By that time everyone stopped playing the game. Absence of server browser made me watch searching for other players for tenth of minutes before I had to go into singleplayer journey.
The worst thing that made me angry was the storyline. Idea of connecting characters from original 'Aliens' movie with the ones in the game was horrible and had no logic.
But I have to say that the competitive multiplayer was good. Maps and different classes is the strongest part of the game. It is far away from the gameplay that we have in 'Left 4 Dead', but it is worth playing.
I'm sorry for those who bought season's pass in advance for the game that disapoints starting from the menu. Finally I have to say, that expectations for the game were too high and I'm 100% sure that the year's biggest fail has already arrived.… Expand

Average User Score: 8.3Jun 7, 2013"Battlefield 2" was one of the reasons I had my PC upgraded for (I don't remember exactly)th time :)
It took much time for "Call of Duty""Battlefield 2" was one of the reasons I had my PC upgraded for (I don't remember exactly)th time :)
It took much time for "Call of Duty" creators to bring players to the modern action, but EA decided to let us use modern weapons much earlier.
First big sequel to the popular series brought us large maps, various class types and tons of fun time. I have to say that in "Battlefield 2" I was never a big fan of vehicles. Somehow they seemed I bit sluggish so mostly I enjoyed combat on foot, which allowed me to use at my best my favourite class medic. Defibrillator unit was firstly introduced to the game and significantly changed gameplay. Having a medic nearby would allow more heroic actions than you had previously let yourself to perform. Assault class was my second favourite one, although my friends often gave preference to engineers.
Having one right behind your tank would make you almost unstoppable force. Playing as a sniper was difficult for me, because I never understood a sniper rifle that did not kill an enemy with a single shot.
A new feature that was introduced but never appreciated, by me at least, was artillery fire, that was often used as bombing of the point at the moment when it was captured by an enemy.
To give more balance against heavy vehicles new rocket launchers were introduced, that were statically set at some places and allowed firing missiles.
"Battlefield 2" also had AI partners that could make you a company. Having AI in opposite team often made playing a nightmare as making headshots with a pistol from unbelievable distance was not a big deal for them.
Weapon's kickback was not a big deal to get used to, but somehow I consider it a problem, because this way you can't 'feel' weapons.
Anyway, everything that was not appreciated by me doesn't make the game any worse, so at the moment of release, eight long years ago I would recommend it to any player who liked shooters.… Expand

Average User Score: 8.5May 14, 2013More than ten years ago holding a disc box I remember thinking, that it was the first WWII first person shooter that gave opportunity to driveMore than ten years ago holding a disc box I remember thinking, that it was the first WWII first person shooter that gave opportunity to drive a car and a vehicle, allowing to enter them at any time. That was more than enough to play the game that I had never heard of. But then another picture took my attention a plane that was controlled by a player. "Is this a joke?" I thought, could there be really a game that allowed even flying? Oh, yes! "Battlefield 1942" gave multiplayer only experience that left so much unforgettable fun. There is no doubt that EA set such a high level of quality with this game that even now is difficult for many companies to achieve. Huge maps, much tactics, various combat allowed me to enjoy so many situations that rarely appear in singleplayer campaigns.
Combat system was very different comparing to "Medal of Honor" and "Counter-Strike". But it was easy to get used to. There were some class types but somehow I remember that usually everyone played with bazooka, because entering a vehicle was the first thing each of my friends tried to do. Basically "Battlefield 1942" game system is all about capturing and holding points. At that time it was not an original regime, but with transport it seemed liked just something completely new and unique.
Main theme of the game is still one of the best scores that were written for a game.
I also have to say that there were some very successful modes that added not only extra maps but transport and weapons too.
Ten out of ten for the game that took us to battles that no other gamer had been before.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.3May 14, 2013After years of waiting a new game in AvP universe was released and there had been a reason to expect this game, because it was developed byAfter years of waiting a new game in AvP universe was released and there had been a reason to expect this game, because it was developed by the team that years earlier had given us first AvP for PC.
Commonly to the other games in the series singleplayer campaign is divided into three separate parts. Each one gives unique gameplay and original story. The game provides us with much gore and very good animations that make you want to get more into the game (the one I remember most is alien holding a marine so that facehugger could jump on his face).
Storyline provides us with some new stuff that had never been shown in either movies or games.
At release date the game looked very good, sound effects were true to the genre.
I never tried multiplayer, so after completing singleplayer part there was nothing else for me. Unfortunately, singleplayer left nothing that could make a solid game worth replaying. "Aliens vs. Predator" is not original in any way, but somehow I would recommend it to anyone who likes games and AvP universe. If you don't expect much originality, you will not be disapointed.… Expand

This expansion in any way can't be called a good pack. AVP 2 by Monolith was a perfect game that introduced various original scenarios that years since walkthrough leave good memories. Thing I do remember about "Primal Hunt" is that it was extremely short (only 3 levels for each species), boring and not original. Yes, there could be some more story told about events that took place in AVP 2, but this pack does not achieve this goal.… Expand
