I'll probably buy it. $15 isn't much to me, though undoubtedly it'll be more likely near double here in Aus.

I think they're saying this is an expansion, not just a map pack (like the difference between Jalalabad and Special Forces in BF2). Technically it's different, even if not by much.

So basically, when DICE said the following:

DICE: We'll never charge for Battlefield maps
What they actually meant was:

DICE: We'll never make Battlefield maps. When we do make maps we'll throw in weapon skins and charge people for an 'expansion' instead.
And what about this part:

"We don't ever want to charge for our maps and insisted to EA that this attitude was crucial when it came to keeping our community happy and playing together,"
What a load of lies.

They charged for Special Forces and the other BF2 expansions so I'm not surprised at all.

To make matters even worse, people are saying that its not 4 maps at all, but 2 maps with rush and conquest on them both (Which to DICE = 4 maps).

I haven't seen a source but i've seen it mentioned more than once.

if it was a solid game i would probably buy it, but map selection and skins are definitely not what made me stop playing
Aside from the lack of air units, I don't see much/any difference between this game and BF2 besides better graphics. Sure, the maps are smaller, but they're 32 man maps rather than 64.
sluggish combat
lack of real HUD
lack of appropriate controls (pickup kits while disarming an mcom, yeah no thanks)
Terrible and buggy UI
etc

it just plays exactly like a console game. Doesn't bother some, but I can't deal with it for terribly long.

Man, the sounds in BC2 are just too good. Maybe the foliage in this will make the Snipers less faggy in this expansion, I just might get this game now

The closest map to the setting of Vietnam the game features is Laguna Presa which is a pretty map. If the whole game is like that I'll be very pleased.
Laguna Presa (both varieties) is far and away my favorite.
Yep. Best map in the game
Are you all high? That is far and away the worst map in the history of the world.  I have never played a competitive game there, either you never get past the first two points, or you rape the other team through all 5 sections.

Edit: It's okay in Conquest mode. Rush mode sucks anus balls.

Double Edit: More on topic, I am (as the OP said) intrigued, but I want to find out more about this before I will say I'm excited. I'll probably get it for the new weapons and awards you get, but idk how cool it will be. I also would not be surprised if it really was 2 maps with 2 game modes each. DICE would do that.

Triple edit:

I will never compliment an EA game like this again, but I will admit that the sounds in the game are absolutely fantastic. The din in the game is so unbelievably realistic, and ever sound the gun and vehicle, etc, makes it just an eargasm every time I play.  Easily the #1 non-gameplay reason I keep playing this game. It's so amazing to hear all the sounds.

The jungle maps are my favorites overall, simply because I feel like they're more immersive.   And I never played the original BF:V, but always thought that Vietnam is a great setting for a FPS, so I'm looking forward to this.

I have a feeling that instead of releasing new BC2-specific maps prior to the expansion, they will instead opt to release this expansion, then conveniently "gift" regular BC2 players with a couple of the BC2:V maps to play in the standard game. 

Just a wild, speculative guess, but it seems like a plausible 2-birds-with-one-stone situation that might play out, especially considering Dice's current MO of rehashing already-made stuff and calling it new.

I just hope I don't have to level up again. Everything past level 30 has sucked.

Maybe it's a PS3 network issue.  Lag isn't really that bad on the 360.

50 bucks says they're going to re-skin the M16 and use the exact same model.

Oh and same applies to the RPG, cut off the scope and maybe add a slightly different warhead and reload anim?

And the M60, no changes to that thing, that's genuine 1960s equipment.

M1911 is called the WWII M1911, they're not going to change that.

and I think that the AK-47 might finally be coming to BC2. Only new thing they all probs, except maybe a Mosin.

Don't know a lot on the Vietnam war but I'm guessing they used flame throwers ? Would be nice to see jets introduced with napalm (although the only way they could do this if maps are small is if they use the similar idea with the UAV and called an airstrike in like that - maybe ?) and the classic surfin bird song among with a few others, could be a nice little expansion. People are getting way too arsey with it if I'm honest, can't some people be happy for once. Fair enough they should have been working on the patch and more maps but I am happy with the idea of being able to play in the Vietnam era in a nice shiny engine (even though it runs on low for me anyways).

Just my 2 cents xxx

WUT?   9 out of 10 360 servers I get on have lag, and 2-3 of those are unplayable lag.
