Not to offend some militant BF: Vietnam fan or whatever but why is it that BF:V kinda sucked and did horribly when it came out?

You would think it would be pretty cool and such but it just seems that the larger audience didnt really "approve" of this game and it kinda sunk into the shadows after a little while of release.

I have it and I try and give it a chance every now and then but there are times when I cant even stand it...the same seemed to have happened with 2142...BF2 still seems to be the more popular more "approved" modern game of the series

BFV was good, I think BF2 and 2142 kinda suck. But that's just me.

I love BFV, it has all that is good about BF42, and some of the more modern weapons. Plus, music.

It slunk into the shadows because most saw it as an expansion of BF42, (which it practically was), not something worth wasting their money on.

I <3 my BFV. Die, Charlie!

That's how I feel about BF2142. Plus I'm not a huge fan of sci-fi games. Well, I like star trek and star wars though.

The weapons were nerfed and the game was balanced into ludicrousness... the Vietcong rolling about with SA7's and their own Air and Armor forces? whatever man, whatever.

This is why I loved it so much when it first came out. The VC were lucky to get one tank on a map, and USArmy/USMC/MACVOSG/ARVN were better equipped. I liked this, because it meant that the VC team would often draw the better players. I also liked it because if I just needed to shoot something, I'd be the USA and pwn with the Cobra, or M14, or M60, or M16.

Best weapon kits: M14+torch+C4=Charlie exploding everywhere, and being able to pick off any survivors? How can you NOT love this? Type56+RPG7V+Stickgrenades= Rocket-propelled explosives, and what is basically an AK, but with more accuracy. Fun all the way to Saigon!
