Should I buy the Vietnam DLC at this point?

I have joined this game very late but I absolutely love it, so much so that I can't imagine being without 4 new maps and 15 new weapons and 6 new vehicles. It makes my mouth water. But at 1200msp I want to be able to actually play with other Vietnam DLC owners. So my question is, are there a lot of Vietnam players since active and is it worth $15 at this point?

Well, it has been a while since I last played it (early Fall, I think, around the time of the BF3 beta), but I remember it was still pretty popular then. I think if you stick to common modes and maps, you'll be fine (don't buy it for Hardcore Squad Rush! lol).

So its a good value for $15, all things considered? I just don't want to be stuck with achievements I can't get or maps I can't play.

Yeah, it is, it could get a bit frustrating at times... but so does the base game if you're on a bad team. The achievements do take a while and a bit of effort (still don't have all of them), so just know you'll be on it for a while.

If you have friends that have it, and they are willing to jump on vietnam as well, go for it. I'd have to say no though. rarely anyone jumps on vietnam anymore.,

I'm gonna resurrect this thread since I'm curious.


I bought this game again the other day and am having a blast on it. It's not hard at all to find a match, but is the Vietnam part still dead? It looks insanely fun, but from what has been said in this thread, it's been dead for a while, and I just want to be sure before forking out 1200 MP for it.

I don't give a shit about achievements, just want to know if it's hard to find a match or not.

I just picked up this game and am playing through the campaign. I wouldn't mind playing online but I would never pay 1200MS for a map pack when the game sounds nearly dead. Feels like throwing money out the window.
