I´m hoping to get my copy of BF: Vietnam tomorrow. Some of you guys might already have it so I thought we could gather Pros and Cons for switching FH to BF: Vietnam (sooner or later). Pro: -Multiple weapon kits for even more variation in arms -Better more detailed vehicles possible -Almost identical structur to BF 1942 -New flag capture system would also be cool in FH -undergrowth system would surley improve lots of FH maps Con: -Not any huge game-play changing advantages -Chopper filght physics would bb left unused in FH -Not yet as popular as BF 1942 I´ll add some more (hopefully) once I´ve actually been able to play it. Whoever already has it fell free to share your thoughts. And please NO EA/DICE flaming about BF: Vietnam beeing a rip-off etc. If your not getting it, then STFU:fistpunch:
Cons: Every single model had to be redone weapon models, trees, buildings etc.
Nope, DICE said mods could use any model from BF1942 they want in a BF:V mod.
Hmm, well, at least they're nice about it.(Smart of them to allow that)
Con - default bfv has higher sysrequirement then bf42, fh has higher sysrequirement then bf42, fh+bfv = slide show
i read in the penny arcade interview that the americans speak vietnamise(sp?)
I´ve already given up on playin BF-V, even though i got it 10 hours ago... In my opinion, they should have called it "Unreal Vietnam", or "Quake-Cong", because thats what it is gamplay-wise.
Its is waaaay too arcarde, there´s just no need for tactics.Graphics are good so far, but the Sound sure misses something, theres no acoustic atmosphere, you dont even hear bullets around you.Most of the time you die and never seen where it came from or even noticed you were under fire. Classes are very unbalanced, the american heavy gunner has the M-60 , which he can use as a sniper rifle (well, without scope) while standing + he gets a bazooka/grenade launcher.
The netcode is crap, its almost impossible to get a good connection, even with 512 Kbit up/downstream and pings below 30.
I´m gonna wait for a patch and the n00bs (not newbies) to calm down a bit, and then give it a try again. Maybe there´ll be a mod for it by then, well see...
So far, FH will do just fine for me, nothing beats it !
I take what n0e says way too seriously

I have it and it is great fun. I have only been able to play it a few hours but my first impressions are pretty good. They seemed to have increased the realism a little by making the amount of bullets to kill someone halfway between BF42 and FH. The effects, and graphics overall are beautiful. Not much I can say until I have played it more.
Sounds pretty much like BF1942 when it first came out. Crappy netcode, horrible optimization, etc. They improved all of that, as well, but only by about 1.2 or so. even after that, it's taken them a LONG time to get in changes that should've shipped with the first run (good adminning tools, balanced gameplay IE: grenades can't kill a tank so easily, etc.).
I suspect much of this is EA wanting to kick games out the door quickly.
I won't buy bfv so i hope that fh wont change. If they do change, they will lose a lot of fans, and it will probably be a lagfest or a slidshow like stridex said. One of the main reasons i like bf1942 is because of the planes. With Fh, i dont need no bf. Bfv should have been an expansion considering the lack of materials in it. For example, flashpoint resistance probably has most stuff then bfv in it, and its only an expansion to the original game. In conclusion bfv= :thumbsdown:
