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.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam Operation Hastings Map Unlocked for Xbox360 and PS3

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam's Operation Hastings map has been unleashed without Xbox 360 and PS3 players completing the required 69 million team actions. Is it a fail on the developer's part?

Despite the community challenge which required players to hit a total 69 million team actions (resupply, revive, heal, repair or spot teammates) under one platform, DICE has unlocked the fifth and final map of the Battlefield Vietnam expansion, Operation Hastings for the console players. Reports state that the sudden change of plans was DICE’s idea to “start this new year with a big of a bang as we ended it.”

PC gamers were able to reach the 69 million team action mark in a matter of days, while console players showed a little disinterest as they were only able to stack up to 34 and 46 million actions in the same time frame. This may be a move to spark a little more interest towards the console gamers.

Operation Hastings was available for download last December 18, 2010 for the PC and December 21, 2010 fo Xbox and PS3 players.

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.
