This is very much the work of professionals, with lots of time having been spent on the really boring stuff that actually makes these games happen, like making a decent server-management interface, all-new mod tools, network code for better online play, as well as graphical and audio tweaking. More importantly perhaps is the fact that it remains so enjoyable to play. This is a testament to the genius of the original design. The fact of the matter is that Battlefield is bloody brilliant.
Battlefield Vietnam packs more dramatic moments in its gameplay than most any multiplayer-focused action game in the past few years. Strictly compared against its 2-year-old predecessor, it's a better-designed game, featuring better technology--as you'd probably expect. And it's a better executed game; Battlefield Vietnam doesn't ship with any of the game-breaking bugs and flaws that Battlefield 1942 shipped with, which were fortunately addressed by postrelease patches.
If you're a fan of 1942, you'll have fun in Vietnam. If you've never played a Battlefield game and want to try, this is probably a good way to get into it with combat that may be more familiar due to the more modern weaponry. Hopefully EA will be releasing a demo in the future that will allow new players a chance to try the game out for a little while, but if you can't wait, I'm guessing most people won't be too upset by this purchase.
