I have played the battlefield series since 1942 made its debut on PC. I have taken part in Battlefield 2, 2142, Bad Company 1 and 2, and 1943. I have loved them all, and I was really looking forward to Vietnam. Boy was I disappointed. Mainly its the maps. Perhaps its the era, I'm not even sure. All I know is something about this expansion really puts me off my gruel. I definitely think the maps are rather pitiful. They channel you down narrow passages way too often into the crosshairs of multiple snipers of the defending team, and most passages people can only fit down a few at a time, so its really easy to just be raped by snipers constantly. Throw in the lag issues and its a nightmare. Yes, lag. If you have played Bad company 1 or 2, you probably know what I speak of. When you run around a corner, break line of sight, and still die? Thats the superiority of the other persons connection, but its too obvious. It really detracts from the game. Its even worse in Vietnam, I don't know if they just didn't tighten up their network code or what, but its ridiculous. You need to have a wicked fast latency to have a chance of doing well at all, or they will just rape you. Over. And Over. And Over. If you doubt me I encourage you to play for a few hours, then go back to bad company. you will see the difference. I could almost say when a patch hits it will be better, but I cannot get past the lame map design. Out of all the Battlefield Series games, I would have been hard pressed to declare any map as bad, I liked them all, Until Vietnam came out. Every map blows. But don't take my word for it. Waste 1200 points and see for yourself. Vietnam is a shameful addition to the battlefield Franchise.
