    When DICE buffs up the formidable war machine that is Battlefield Bad Company 2, their star multiplayer franchise, they use every last bit of cultural and movie folklore surrounding this cruel and well-covered conflict. Polished to the extreme, Vietnam enhances all the more the fun it gives us, and those typical moments of bravery.

    With Vietnam Battlefield Bad Company 2 becomes the most complete first person shooter of this year, and possible the best.

    A DLC that changes everything. A new addiction. [Feb 2011, p.76]

    Visceral game changer that provides almost too much bang for 15.8591 bucks. No innovations that further the title, though. [Mar 2011, p.104]

    A generous and competent addition to Bad Company 2.

    Instead of building upon ideas introduced in Bad Company 2, Vietnam rolls everything back to the decade-old Battlefield 1942.

    Big improvement in a lot of aspects of BFBC2. Assault Rifles now have better range to balance snipers, + the maps are better designed soBig improvement in a lot of aspects of BFBC2. Assault Rifles now have better range to balance snipers, + the maps are better designed so Wookies can't just sit up on a hill and pick people off. Worthless non-contributing wookies are doing their best to ruin BFBC2 vanilla.
    -Loses a point for lack of maps... and one is really small nade fest. But if you were score this off of the 3 maps, it would be 10/10. Ok buy for $10. Wish more people played it compared to vanilla, but thats the case with any DLC. A lot of people just don't bother.

The maps are well thought out, the combat is fast paced but still well balanced, e.g. a sniper isn't penalised for being sneaky/camping, the assault class isn't easily picked off by snipers, etc. The only gripe I have with the game engine is the helicopter, as yet again with the battlefield series, it lacks realism, its not hard to keep in the air (minus the fact that people will be shooting at you), it is however hard to be deadly on a long term basis. After playing a few team games I saw the helicopter as nothing more than a diversion for the enemy on the ground to be unnecessarily worried about and shoot at while the rest of your teammates on the ground sneak past/knock them off. Sad to say that the "Desert Combat" MOD for the original "Battlefield: 1942" was the last in the Battlefield series to have a realistic approach to the helicopters, they took time to tame, but were absolutely lethal in the hands of a veteran. All in all Vietnam is worth a purchase....if it's on sale...maybe....if you're in the mood, but in all seriousness don't expect anything more than the original "Battlefield: Vietnam". Expand
