Battlefield Vietnam Sucks

I can't believe all the hype for such a crappy game. The game just STINKS of being a free mod, but nope $40.

This should have been a $15 addon.
Being a fan of bf1942 and especially desert combat, this game doesn't compare. It's not like there are major issues, it's just A LOT of annoyances.

Helicopters too easy to fly they float for miles.
Maps not thought out as well for flow but there sure is alot of crud everywhere.
Explosions of rockets and anti tank are pretty lame.
The screaming alerts are much gayer and more frequent in single player.
You get like 6 alerts/commands in single? and dozen more in multi?
The weapons have beome more inaccurate than back in bf1942 which simulated ww2 lol
The 45 degree gun placement on the screen is lame.
No single player campaign.
Menus, information text placement, and life bars = lame. they had it right the first time!!
Running is more wobbly.
IF you side step left and right real fast there is a DELAY and it's made me nautious!!!
You can't run and zoom in with your weapon, which is ok for realism, but it's VERY annoying when you have gotten used to it.
Maps and objects are still jagged.
They rotated the mini map 45 degrees for some stupid reason.
You no longer can see local enemies on mini map.
Outposts switch in literally seconds depending on the settings which is lame becaue before you could be off to your second outpost before it goes neutral, NOW you can't turn your back before it's enemy territory.
etc etc

This game doesn't compare to Desert Combat a mod you can get for FREE.

Aw crud.

I pre-ordered this ages ago, it's out here shortly. I was hoping it was going to kick ass.

I love DC, I play a clan match every tuesday night. Man, that's a good game. It's so rewarding.

Had you heard that DC 1.0 was not going to be free? Man, that sucks! I hope they get a BF Vietnam version out pretty soon.

I'm gutted now, I was realy looking forward to it.

I'd pay for DC, especially if i knew the people who made it would get most of the money, that game is awesome.

BFV, i'd rate it on my game scale...

bargain crud never to be considered
downloading for a minute of fun
buying when it's $1.99 a month later because you forgot how stupid it was.
downloading to see if it's fun

Lol @ your scale!

Is it really that bad? That's a bummer. I did think that some of the pictures looked like little more than a mod. Oh well. I'll wait for the new DC to get some new kicks.

I agree, I'd pay for DC, it's an immense game.

Ive never played it, but that sounds pretty crappy to me.
dont forget at EA or whatever theyll make patches and stuff and send em out I geuss..
I want to try it though, looks pretty nifty.

But I think that Desert combat surpaces even the original game. I absolutely love them Blackhawks

I like the small helo with the machine guns.

What pisses me off about this version of DC is the balance of damage.

You can hit 4 tank rounds on a flying helo, doesn't even smoke WHENT IT'S FLYING, on the gournd it blows up in one shot.

A stinger rocket which is the most USELESS weapon on ground units and barely touches people is just a tad over several gamma ray bursts to anything that flys.

I spent 1000 rounds and a dozen rockets, on a harrier on the ground with an american helo, the thing didn't even smoke. Yet I can machine gun the thing on the ground with the SMAU and it'll explode instantly.

This crap is annoying.
