From villages on the Ho Chi Minh Trail to the city streets of Hue, wage modern warfare as the United StatesThe Battlefield franchise enters a new era equipped with more firepower, modernized weaponry and vehicles, and a deeper infantry experience from the jungles to the beaches of Vietnam. From villages on the Ho Chi Minh Trail to the city streets of Hue, wage modern warfare as the United States or North Vietnamese Army (NVA). Select from a variety of characters within the different soldier classes as you command powerful new vehicles including the UH-1 Huey helicopter, the M551 Sheridan tank, and the F-4 Phantom fighter jet on the U.S. side and the Russian-made T-54 tank, the MIG-21, and Mi-8 multipurpose helicopter on the NVA side. Go to war in new dramatic battle scenarios including leading a squadron of Huey helicopters in an all-out attack on an enemy compound, executing an ambush of enemy soldiers from dense foliage, captaining a PT boat through a dangerous jungle river passage, and more. Grab your M-16, ready the Napalm and prepare to enter some of the fiercest battles of the Vietnam War. [Electronic Arts] Expand

    The superior force in online warfare and a real candidate for PC Game of the Year. If you’re fed up with Flak Cannons and Rail Guns, enlist with this platoon. Posthaste, soldier!
  2. All the new weapons, aircraft, and landside vehicles fit the time period and are well equipped for battle. The addition of helicopters really expands on the tactics and the way battles are fought.
  3. Where Vietnam easily makes the most improvement, however, is in its visuals. Boasting a much more powerful rendering engine, the environments of Vietnam come alive.
  4. What I personally would've liked to have seen from DICE is even more creativity in terms of map design, game modes and player classes.
  5. The only truly outstanding aspect of the game is the scope and ambition of the game, which it pulls off just as competently as it's predecessor. It's close resemblance to the original works both for it and against it.

    Vietnam is not about skill or proving your worth. It's about taking part in recreations of famous battles, crawling on your belly, loving every minute. And when it works, nothing can touch it. [Apr 2004, p.103]
  7. Unplayable is the best word to describe this debacle.

    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 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 is a must have. Don't listen to the critics they get paid to say things listen to the fans cause' we now what's best! Expand

    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. 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.
