Hey, I have BF1942 and thought it was half decent. I liked it at first, but now i'm more of a realism junky, so i can't stand the fact that i get killed by bunny hopping ex-packers. Hmmm... That was a bit much, i actually like it, but i prefer a mod called FH. Now i'm in the mood for a Vietnam war game. I heard Conflict and Shellshock sucked, but screenies look rather nice. Men of Valor would be perfect (i kinda like infantry based) except some animations aren't fluid and bots can be a bit dumb at times. (I might get this one) Vietcong wouldn't be bad, but the screenies just show the special forces, and i much rather prefer 'grunts' (americans wearing those vests and helmets, also with writing on them. If you've seen Full Metal Jacket, you'll know what i mean). Some people recommend BF Vietnam. They say if I want infantry based, Urban maps pretty much are. Hows the support for this game? If the multiplayer decent? Like teamwork, non laming, and non spray and praying? Hows the engine (like, do bullets move fast, for will i have to be aiming 3 feet infront of my enemies lol). I hope I don't sound like an ass or anything :) Thanks!
its a great game in my opinion. Im the leader of a 1942 clan, but I actually think I prefer BFV. Its more realistic than 1942. You get a scarier feeling when playing the game.
Cool! Maybe i'll get this for Christmas or something Anyone else?

If you want realism, get Battlefield 1942 and then the Forgotten Hope mod.
If you want to play for lots of fun, get Battlefield 1942 and the Desert Combat mod.
Either way, BF1942 (with its mods) beats out BFV. Thats just my opinion.
People say I post too much

BF1942 has been out much longer than BFV, so thats not really fair. IMHO BFV is good, the patches are making it better, and I'm still waiting for the release of certain mods for it.
Ah I see, so it's like BFV doesn't have all the bugs and whatnot sorted out, but BF1942 does, becuase it's had time to. I already have FH and it's pretty good. Although, however interested i am in WW2, i'm getting a little sick of it. 'Tis the reason I'm looking for a good Vietnam game. Sounds good. Thanks guys!

If you really want you can play the official EA/DICE WWII Mod for BFV. It's three Pacific Theatre maps redone in BFV to take advantage of the engine's foliage.
Anyhow - I loved BF42, love the FH mod even more, and I love BFV just about as much. Looking forward to the EoD mod for BFV - which will be a lot like what FH is for BF42 - but mostly because I loved so many of the EoD BF42 maps.
Nice! I thought EoD was pretty cool (although last i played was only one full server) but it was nicely detailed. Only thing i didn't like about it was that there was no urban maps. Have you guys seen Full Metal Jacket (movie) ? It's a movie based in 'Nam, and mostly urban fights. That's why i love urban maps so much. Heh, i even got the soundtrack, and listened to it as i played Men of Valor. Felt just like watching FMJ. Oh, and just another Question (srry that i keep going on and on like this). Are there alot of weapons and tanks? If you noticed, there aren't many weapons in BF42 (alot of countries share them with eachother in the game). Now it's a showdown between BF Vietnam of Men of Valor, which didn't get very good reviews, but to me, it's exactly how i pictured nam. Hmmm... Maybe i'll drop HL2 and get both
the 1942 vietnam mod sucks compared to BFV.
and theres just as many bugs in 1942 as in BFV.
drop HL2 for BFV???!?!?
