We Got This Covered (Jan 07, 2011)
Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam is a great compliment to its core game, taking all that we loved about the tactical squad based-shooter and transferring them into an entirely different setting with new guns, vehicles and massive changes to class and game balance. It comes in at a great price and is the perfect reason to take a break from Halo and Call of Duty and return to the Battlefield. This is one of the best DLC’s of 2010 and is a must-have for any Battlefield fan.

Das Beeindruckende ist aber, dass es den Spieler noch intensiver ins Getümmel versetzt als anderswo. Das liegt einerseits an der Dynamik der Matches, vor allem aber an der bombastischen Soundkulisse, welche sogar das brillant abgemischte Hauptspiel in den Schatten stellt: Die Explosionen treiben den Subwoofer an die Grenze, der schroffe Knall der Gewehre hallt realistisch von den Hügeln wieder und darunter mischen sich hektische vietnamesische Kommandos mit amerikanischen Flüchen - einfach klasse! Durchbrochen wird die Illusion lediglich von Kleinigkeiten wie dem Hängenbleiben an kleinen Hindernissen, den etwas zu präzisen Gewehren sowie matschigen Texturen, welche man direkt hinter einer Deckung zu sehen bekommt. Doch der kleine technische Makel lässt sich angesichts beeindruckender Explosionen und malerischer Hintergrundpanoramen verschmerzen. Alles in allem wird dieser Actionkracher die ohnehin hohe Langzeitmotivation des Hauptspiels noch eine ganze Weile verlängern.

In a day and age where the value of map packs and expansions are closely scrutinised, BC2: Vietnam is the epitome of value for money, offering the same exhilarating gameplay as its boxed counterpart, but with a fresh twist in an entirely new era and stunning environment. It’s a little disappointing that none of the maps are really built to showcase the Frostbite engine’s destructible environment aspect, but other than that, you can’t grumble at what Bad Company 2: Vietnam offers you... which is 5 new maps, more of the addictive Rush gameplay and the potential of more enjoyable hours spent in one of 2010’s finest multiplayer games.

Bad Company 2 Vietnam is one of the best console expansions I’ve ever played for an FPS. The amount of maps and new vehicle weapons could have easily been sold as a retail release but instead are turned into a downloadable title for the price of most map packs for other FPSs. There are enough modes and new weapons and vehicles to play around with to keep you playing for a long time. Along with the rock-solid Bad Company 2 game play, there’s rebalancing to make it less harsh on newcomers and keep veterans on their toes. This is a master crafted expansion. Dice and EA have once again raised the FPS bar so high that other efforts look amateurish by comparison. Thanks for the good times Halo Reach; I’ll see you again Black Ops; but for now, I’d rather spend some time in Vietnam.

Priced at 15 bucks, Vietnam occupies that middle ground between a full-blown sequel or expansion, and a less ambitious map pack. Although it lacks single-player content, Vietnam builds on the strengths of an already excellent game and provides the player with some incredibly well-made new content. If you're a fan of Battlefield: Bad Company 2, this is a no-brainer; and if you've never tried BC2's particular brand of squad-based multiplayer, Vietnam is a pretty strong argument for giving it a try.

Battlefield developers DICE have released their first major expansion pack for Battlefield Bad Company 2 in the form of Vietnam. It is an multiplayer-only expansion pack that contains four unlocked maps, and one locked map which will unlock when a version of the game passes 69,000,000 team play actions. Each platform's unlock map is unique to the platform and is not a collective total, so we won't be seeing the final map for several months.

BC2 Vietnam has suffered from some problems with its stat tracking. Player ranks and statistics haven't always been accurate, though this is a mild annoyance, considering how much less important player progression and unlocks are to the overall experience when compared to the original release. Nevertheless, if you strayed from Battlefield: Bad Company 2 once you reached maximum level or are new to the game and want a good reason to show off your elite shooting skills, the Vietnam add-on is your ticket to big explosions, big shoot-outs, and big thrills. And you get it all for 1200 Microsoft Points ($15).
