  • Vietnam worth getting?

    I have been getting back into BC2 recently but i just want something new to play around with and i figured vietnam was the next best thing.

    What i really want to know is if its worth the $15 price tag and if many of the BC2 playerbase are actually active within the add-on. I dont want to buy it and find that there arnt many australian servers and very few people are playing it.

    So whats everyones thoughts?

    I don't have an opinion on servers but I enjoyed it a lot...

    (If you want to improve your KDR thats an easy way to do it... the games pretty easy once you figure out how it plays.)

      I enjoyed it but it's really a small expansion, maps are ultra small except 1 plus and the new map in conquest. Gameplay is a little different (less gadgets, weapons more deadly) but nothing major. If you're bored of BC2 and don't have others games buy it, otherwise keep your money.

          ALL MAPS have chokepoints, and at that point (I see what you did there), it becomes a sniper fest.

          M40 is one hit kill, similar to the pre-patch BFBC2 M95.

          The hitregs are HUGE! M16/ak47/M60s are king.

          Know this, and decide whether you want it.

          You'll die alot!

            if you guys have played MoH, it's very similar to it.

              I was banned on a site for using the M40. The admin thought it was an M21 and didnt know his game very well.

              Even though Amaranthuse is correct, I still find it enjoyable.

                I dunno, when everyone was complaining about the M60 being overpowered early in BC2, I loved it, and actually did better with it then than I do now.... hahaha

                    Forgot to mention:

                    choppers are much easier to fly in nam than in vanilla.

                    the boats (almost spelled the goats) are very powerful, they can "MOW DOWN" and I am not exaggerating, MOW DOWN, the entire enemy team if they are left unchecked. The .30 cals on Patrol Boats are bone saws.

                    Flamethrower has an effective range of 15m. Don't try to use it like a sniper rifle.

                    The milk van or Tuk-tuk is very weak, a pistol can blow it up. Use it with caution.

                    Maybe this is a personal thing:

                    Soldiers in nam BLEND IN to the environment, and the maps are generally dark (hasting is an exception), so making out enemy soldiers is difficult.

                        This just makes me more excited. I can finally get that vehicle warfare pin!

                            Quite a bit, I usually am able to frequent the same servers.

                            Also, yet again, to avoid chokepoint like scenarios just play on servers with less people... I swear you people ignore more every time I say this haha, the gameplay is so much better.

                            The Huey is sooooooooooooooo much fun.

                              Varies, on the Eastern Time Zone, there are about 7 good servers.

                              Usually populated at night.

                              A lot of servers are empty though.
