Any good? Is there somewhere I can download a demo?

I have the game and love playing it. The maps are well designed, good layout, and strategic thought went into them. The reloading sequences on weapons can be irritating - especially in a hectic firefight - too long to reload IMHO.

I haven't found a demo for BFV yet. Try the EA website:

I had it and sold it before it got opened.

I have been hearing good things though.

Not all that great unless your comp. is Uber Elite... and I mean FUCKING UBER.... I prefer, as do most people... Call of Duty and its expansion pack CoD: United Offensive. And "America's Army", official game put out by the Army with more players than CS ever had. MoH: Pacific Assault is coming out so that's another to look for. "Men of Valor" sucks.. don't try it!

What is your opinion of Uber Elite? I run it on a AMD 1800+ just fine.

I have a 1.47 AMD, 512 DDR RAM, GeForce MX440 128 DDR Vid Card... My computer isn't the biggest or the brightest, but it has been going strong for about 3 years and I play AA and CoD like nothing. However, BFVietnam, played in the manner that it was conceived, that is <50+ players, is VERY demanding on a comp... especially when you really need a smooth and quick game experience.

im running a 1.4 gig pent. and a 9200 video card and have to turn down the video options, but im having fun with it so far.

It will run just fine on any mid-range system, you just might have to turn the eye candy down a bit.

I'll stick to CoD:UO, AA, or BF1942: DesertMod

BFV's pretty fun, I recommend it.

Computer-wise, yes, you can turn down the eye candy and run it on a number of machines. The video card does 80% of the work, but the CPU has to be fast enough to pass triangles to the video card. If you have a nice video card and an ok CPU, then it looks really good!

BFV will run fine on a 64MB or 128MB video card. It doesn't use all of the 128MB video card, so a 256MB video card will not make a difference. The # of MB does not determine the speed of the video card. You'll be much better served getting a 128MB 9600 Pro than a 256MB 9200. A 256MB video card will be useful next year...so unless you're getting a 6800GT, the 256MB won't be of too much importance.

I'd say the best bang for the graphics dollar is at a minimum the 9600 Pro 128MB (~$100). Moving up to the $200 9800 Pro (must be 256-bit!...but 128MB is fine) will really blow your socks off. If you can wait a month, then I'd go for the AGP version of the 6600GT ($200) and looking to perform above the 9800 Pro. The CPU should be somewhere above the 2GHz mark (or above 2000 mark for AMD's...1800...fine).

The GF440MX, RADEON 9200, GF5200 and others in that class do have 3D acceleration, but are woefully underpowered. I know...I've got each of them in different computers that do different non-gaming duties. The higher end cards really make a huge difference!

I've got a little AMD box here...I had a GF440MX in it at first...besides, I don't play many games on that machine. I run 3dMark03 on it for fun...then I upgrade the CPU only and do it again..then I upgrade the video card only and do it yet again...

Duron 1.6/GF440MX...3dmark03=206
AMD2700XP/GF440MX...3dmark03=226 (graphics card does most of the work)
AMD2700XP/ATI 9600XT...3dmark03=3733!

Here's Tom's Hardware on the subject using BF1942 (similar engine, not as much eye candy). Their test is with much of the eye candy turned off.

i really have a ball with this game. especially if you have nobody to play with. NOTE: you should really download "JUNGLE WAREFARE" patch. a world of difference i tellya.

PROS:
________________________

-the bird flying is far supeior to that of JOINT OPS; you can bank, do dive runs, fly back to base & re-arm and repair and then you're off again.

-music; enjoy vietnam era tune as you blast dudes ( press "0" for song menu then choose) you can also upload your own tunes.

-while flying choppers, right click, & pick up a PBR or an APC & put it where you like.

- be an engineer; land your beat up bird & repair it on the spot, then you're of again or just set up your motor and blast commies.

CONS:
________________________

-M14 only holds ten rounds

-your friendly AI are fucking retards. DO NOT LET THEM FLY YOU AROUND>

-unlike JOINT OPS you can't choose posistions in vehicles (ie guns & such), you either operate it or ya don't, if you don't you'll end up shooting the driver because, i said it; THEY'RE FUCKING RETARDED.

good game! get it & IM me, we'll play.

I played it on a buddy's alienware computer.

I spent 4 hours playing it at a college party, and completely missed the party. It only felt like I played it for an hour.

So anyway, I loved it, it was a lot of fun. Multiplayer was anyway.

I have it, it's awesome. There's mods out to make the weapons more realistic as well as a mod out for a modern aresenal and a desert setting. I'm running it on a sweet machine now, but I was fine running it on my pIII 750mhz, 1 gig RAM and a Radeon 7500 video card.
