Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam Game Review
It almost feels like a whole new world as Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam's game mechanics still give the players something fresh and engaging without sacrificing the good 'ol Battlefield: Bad Company 2 fun we've always liked.
Ah, Battlefield. A game where fps has been taken to new heights with sweet graphics and gameplay. And as we enter into a new territory with the Vietnam map pack, it certainly has changed the scenery of how we play the game, while still maintaining the elements that got us hooked in the first place.
We get new weapons, new environments, and new vehicles. And although the Vietnam map pack seems to be your average downloadable content for the series, it’s not. Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam seperates itself from the rest as it focuses more on close range combat rather than long range, a feature Battlefield: Bad Company is really known for. Not only do the weapons get a revamp, but the entire environment of the maps encourage players to move in towards their opponents should they want a clear shot of their prey. Various zones include underground tunnels and several LOS points that may prove daunting to players who are adept to long range combat, and that’s what Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam’s purpose of existence.
Each class gets new character models, animations and voices as the atmosphere of the game relives the dark times of the Vietnam war. The maps are impressive to say the least not only because it gives you space to improve your tactical abilities, but also because of the great graphics the franchise is very well known for.
Unmaxed players may find the expansion a little dragging as there is almost little to no character progression. However, it seems DICE planned it all along that the downloadable map pack is for players who just likes to grind through the fun of this action packed first-person shooter game.
Overall, Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam is definitely what the doctor ordered to the guys and gals out there who thinks the franchise’s gameplay is starting to get dull and repetitive. It’s graphics, the bonuses, and the sheer fun of it all are surely rewarding enough to grind through all the 5 maps.
Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam is a first-person shooter, action game developed by EA Digital Illusions CE for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC. Dwell in the lands of Vietnam as you fight your way through another war where failure is not an option.
