  • Summary: Like the United States Army, I came back from the jungles of Vietnam with a bloody nose. Cleraly Vietnam is for those Men at War pros who look for challenge. Very good game.

  • Summary: Men of War: Vietnam takes the player to Vietnam where familiar game mechanics meet new ideas. Unfortunately, the former is tried and true but the latter doesn't hold up. Although MoW:V focuses on small squads, stealth and snipers it fails to form a coherent whole; the Men of War engine is not suitable for stealth, the snipers are far too deadly and the game is full of hidden kill-switches in the form of events taking place on the map forcing you to play without the fog...

  • Summary: I am not normally the one to gripe about things, heck I got the game on holiday sale so I payed only a portion of the face value. However within my first few minutes of play I was utterly turned off. Today, I decided I would give it another shot. I do feel the game "could" be good. But it is utterly crippled by a very poor control scheme. I mean, you can't control the camera with the keyboard at all? Say whaaaat?

  • Summary: 5 Punkte weill es ein Men of War Spiel ist, aber ich hätte mehr erwartet, leider bietet das Spiel, Inhaltlich nicht sehr viel, und der Multieplayer ist auch sehr mager. Da Spiel ich doch lieber AS.

  • Summary: A very good game overall. I agree that this game will appeal more to a niche audience. Vietnam era games/sims are few and far between. MoW Vietnam is the best I've played to date. I love the jungle canopy where it is difficult to see and do anything you want. That's how it is in that environment. Quite a challenge. The smaller unit actions and tactics are what win the day here. No grand battles like Kursk or El Alemain.

  • Summary: Wow. I thought that, with this being a Men of War game, it would be building on the solid gameplay of Assault Squad and improving on it. Big Mistake. It's really, really bad. Interface is retrofitted back to the same one as in the earlier games, and frankly who ever thought that dense canopy jungle makes for a good setting for an isometric RTS game needs to lay off the drugs.

  • Summary: To start off: Are you Interested and have some knowledge of the Vietnam war? or do you like Men of War? If so You will like this game, As I do, It brings a realist setting that games like Shellshock and Bad Company 2 do not, It has a wide array of weapons and units and is a lot less bias than most other games focusing on a real life military conflict in the terms you play as both American and Communist forces, I'd personally dismiss the users giving it 1 star reviews as...

  • Summary: As the whole Men of War series, MoW: Vietnam is a perfect tactical RTS, maybe the best created ever. Comparing to Faces of War or first Men ot War we get improved graphics, some new sounds, and of course new environment, according to the time the Vietnam war took place. New weapons, a lot of jungle locations, new music - for MoW fans it's just exactly what they need. Personally I love this series, and I can not say anything against.

  • Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. As a Vietnamese player, I would like to say this: This game brings out the feel of a Viet Nam's jungle and the cruelty of the war. It is a tough game, but when you have a perfect plan in mind and watch it being done by your units, that will be one of the best feelings that you can get in a tactic game, seriously, It's tiring but it is quite realistic considering how a war in real life situation back then was.

  • Summary: Picked this game up the day before on steam. Played about 2 hours of it then just decided to put it down. I wouldn't go as far as saying it's a crappy game but it definitely not worth $35 AUD. Probably more around the $5 mark and even then personally I wouldn't buy it just because it brings nothing new. It just doesn't work its super hard to see your troops in the dense jungle so that makes it nearly impossible to play the game.
