At the launch of the title, only four maps were made available. The fifth map, the Battle of Hastings, will be available for free once a community goal of 69 million "team actions" (these include resupply, revive, heal, spot, and repair) are completed. As of January 1st the PC platform has the map unlocked, while the Xbox 360 version has approximately 45.5 million completed actions and the PS3 version 35.8 million.
The maps of Bad Company 2 Vietnam are: Hill 137, Vantage Point, Phu Bai Valley, Cao Son Temple, and the aforementioned Operation Hastings. My personal favorite map, so far, is the Cao Son Temple. in this map there is a sizable temple which is on a shoreline along which there is also a small village and a dock. This dock acts as a flag point and also a holding ground for a gun boat which, in the right hands, is a death machine. But with enough players coming together it is easily torn asunder. This can be done by using a few players as cannon fodder and a few others as the cannons. This level is mostly close combat soldier battles, with a few nice spots for snipers to camp.
The soundtrack is via radios within the game. Mostly radios are in vehicles and can be played while driving, but some are also scattered about in villages blaring loud music. The soundtrack is all songs from the '60s (good ones, no junk) totaling over two hours of music. And, of course, for our trophies lovers there are ten new ones in this expansion as well.
The expansion is being sold on the PlayStation Network for $15 and is published by EA games. In order to play this expansion the full game Battlefield Bad Company 2 is required. I would suggest that if you haven’t gotten into the multiplayer aspect of Bad Company 2 yet, you should give this a shot. There are less gadgets to learn than in the regular multiplayer, giving the a new player a fighting chance. Download Vietnam, hone those skills in the jungle, then jump back into the regular multiplayer and show them what a Vietnam vet can do. Please remember Vietnam is multiplayer only, no single player campaign.
Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam is rated M (Mature) by the ESRB for Blood, Violence, Strong Language. This game can also be found on Xbox 360.
