IGN already have a review of Bad Company 2 Vietnam on their site and they give it a thumbs up! They even go so far as to wonder why the expansion isn’t a fully separate game altogether! My guess is that it will encourage more sales of Bad Company 2, while still making sales to existing owners.
Honestly, the most confusing thing about Bad Company 2 – Vietnam is why it isn’t a separate game entirely. EA demonstrated their ability to successfully market and sell a standalone downloadable last summer with Battlefield 1943, and Bad Company 2 – Vietnam is even more distinctive.
Looks like I’ll probably be buying this twice. Once for PS3 and again for the Xbox if enough of my friends on each platform buy it. Let’s make it simple, who’s not buying the Vietnam expansion?
Update! Added the IGN video review!
