Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Battlefield Vietnam Screenshots



Publisher: Electronic Arts
Developer: Digital Illusions Canada
Ship Date: Spring 2004
Category: First Person Vietnam Action

Lock and load your M-16 and grab your flak jacket, it's time to hit the jungle in Battlefield Vietnam™. The Battlefield franchise is moving to a new era equipped with more firepower and beautiful yet ferocious new combat settings. Staying true to the over-the-top, action-packed multiplayer style that gave Battlefield 1942™ its critical and commercial success, Battlefield Vietnam will drop players into some of the Vietnam War's fiercest battles.

The 1960's were not all about love and peace and Battlefield Vietnam will be no different. Fighting in theatres from jungles surrounding the Ho Chi Minh Trail to the city streets of Hue, players will choose from two well-equipped forces, the United States or North Vietnamese Army (NVA) and Vietcong. To provide players a greater connection to their soldier, players will have the opportunity to select from a variety of soldier character models.

The Vietnam War offered powerful new weaponry and players will have the ability to control a variety of authentic U.S. and NVA vehicles. The workhorse for the U.S. during the Vietnam conflict was the helicopter and it will serve the same purpose in Battlefield Vietnam. Some of the combat vehicles straight from the conflict include the UH-1 Huey helicopter, M551 Sheridan tank, Phantom F-4 jet fighter and CH-47 Chinook transport helicopter and for the NVA the Russian-made T-54 tank, MIG-21 jet fighter, and Mi-8 multipurpose helicopter.

A range of new dramatic battle scenarios might include: leading a squadron of Huey helicopters in an all-out attack on an enemy compound, calling-in or piloting an Phantom F4 jet fighter to unleash napalm on a beachfront fortress, executing an ambush of enemy soldiers from dense foliage, airlifting a tank behind enemy territory, or captaining a PT boat through a dangerous jungle river passage.

Key Features

Vehicle passengers will now have the ability to fire weapons while moving

Airlifting vehicles (tanks, PT boats) will lend to a variety of new strategies

New ability to select from a variety of characters within the different soldier classes (assault, medic, scout, anti-tank, engineer)

NVA will have an optional Vietcong soldier "kit" and the engineer will have the ability to plant booby traps

Operate several hand weapons of war that were available to the US and NVA including the M-16, M-60, and AK-47

Two UH-1 Huey helicopter types including power-packed Attack and functional Transport

New secondary explosions triggered if in the vicinity of other combustible objects

Utilizing all new rendering and sound engines will offer Battlefield fans a new sense of immersion and realism.
