Bad Company 2 Vietnam Review

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!

Bad Company 2 Vietnam Videos

Found on the EA forums where you’ll get to enjoy the usual PC owner blathering about consoles and first person shooters! There are a few more videos on that thread too but they’re all in the first post.

I wonder what they’d make of these tweets from Jay:

Bad Company 2 Vietnam will cost $14.99

The new Bad Company 2 Vietnam expansion pack will cost $14.99 or 1200MS points, so says the new in-game trailer announced this morning by DICE.

The trailer looks good, but it’s not quite “in-game”. I’ve never seen a BfBC2 gameplay video shot from those angles!

I’ll be buying.
