Battlefield:Vietnam

I mentioned this to Greasel_burger, but I thought I'd mention it to all. I don't know if anyone here was a fan of the battlefield games (let's just say I am a fanatical one), but they are making a DLC version of Battlefield:Vietnam for the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 engine. I already own BC2, but I know a few people that would buy the game just to buy the DLC. Anywhoo, check it out, it looks fantastic and I only hope it can live up to the original. If this was mentioned before I apologize, I browsed the FPS forum trying to make sure I didn't double-post.

I love BC2 and I am looking forward to this DLC. I am also curious about the new Call of Duty Black Ops.

I loved playing Vietnam! was my favorite game out the bunch of War-games-FPS's i got in a box set several years ago.

But sadly i have lost my game disc for this and for Battlefield 1942 (accidentally uninstalled and i got all the discs but 1 of the original 2)... so my battlefield series is ruined

Might have to pick up BF2 just for this expansion

BF:V was the game that sucked me back into gaming. I played BC2 a bit, but this may bring me back full throttle.

I missed the original Bad Company, though I heard it was great.

I'm looking forward to a new FPS to fill the void and Bad Company 2 Vietnam might be it. Especially if we can jump in our hueys, crank up some rocking 60's tunes like the original BF:V. That might be just to trick to get me in a really good FPS frame of mind...

Definitely looking forward to this one. It appears that it will be pretty good value for $15. The only downside is a limited number of maps (IIRC only 4) and that servers will have to run either BC2 or Vietnam.

I think the BC2 game engine is more suited to a Vietnam style gameplay than the default original modern one IMO. No cover behind buildings isn't fun but this looks like a lot of fun hiding in and blowing away the jungle
