Vietcong: Purple Haze

The Armchair Empire
11 August 2004
  • Conclusion: The framerate became choppy immediately after I was in control of the game. While this was on the highest of settings few games are hardly ever choppy on my test system and the graphics engine in Vietcong has no reason to spawn choppiness. After lowering my settings uneasily, the framerate issue was solved although the graphics were still sub-par. Character anatomy is simply, for lack of a better word, goofy.

  • Conclusion: Overall I think Vietcong is perhaps best summed up as a good single player game with very good multiplayer options.

Vietcong

Gameguru Mania

  • Excerpt: Vietcong was made by a small developer in the Czech Republic by the name of Pterodon in conjunction with Illusion Softworks, the guys behind the Hidden and Dangerous series and the other surprise hit, Mafia. Released six months ago, Mafia received widespread acclaim for its highly authentic and atmospheric presentation and now Vietcong makes a similar kind of effort. It is just like Vietnam, or at least the way they portray it in the movies.

Vietcong

The Gamers Temple
15 December 2003
  • Excerpt: First person shooters tend to be set in one of three environments: sci-fi future, World War II, and modern day counter-terrorism operations.  This is not too surprising, as these settings are familiar to gamers and provide developers with easy to manage environs in which to develop game levels.  On the other hand, game developers have shied away from the Vietnam conflict because of the difficulties posed by its dense jungle environments and guerilla tactics.

Game Over Online
16 May 2003
  • Excerpt: To give you some idea of where I was coming from, I came into Vietcong with some pretty good expectations. I wasn’t looking forward to it in a ‘mammoth expectations that the game can’t possibly achieve’ way, but thought that Illusion Softworks, the folks who brought me the much-enjoyed Mafia, could bring a little fresh air into the FPS pigeonhole. Yet another letdown in the Rorshach gaming world. There are things a game can do that instantly make it unlikable.

  • Conclusion: You would do well to put it down on your "To Buy" list, but wait for the patch, yeah?

  • Summary: It's taken a long time for a game based on the Vietnam war to appear, so is this one worth the wait???

  • Excerpt: Ihr wollt wie in Battlefield: Vietnam durch das Dickicht kriechen und Vietkongs auf Korn nehmen, habt aber keinen Internetzugang und der Einzelspielerteil von Battlefield reicht Euch nicht? Dann ist Vietcong genau richtig für Euch, zu einem gerechten Preis gibt es jetzt Addon und Hauptprogramm im Bundle- bei uns im Test.
  • Pros: Packende Atmosphäre, „Mittendrin-Gefühl“, Abwechslungsreiche Missionen, Tolle Soundkulisse, besonders mit Surround, Guter Preis
  • Cons: Schlechte Speicherfunktion, Keine Sprach-Lokalisierung, Dumme Kollegen, Keine packende oder interessant erzählte Story, Hardwareanforderungen im Vergleich zu anderen Titel übertrieben

Kri­nein
24 July 2003
  • Excerpt: Il fallait bien que ça arrive un jour. Le nombre de doom-like sur la seconde guerre mondiale (type Medal Of Honor ) frôlant l'overdose, il a fallu passer à autre chose. Le Vietnam n'est pas une guerre très populaire. Massacres perpétrés, vétérans bafoués, prisonniers abandonnés sans parler de l'état du pays dans lequel les Américains l'ont laissé à la fin de la guerre. Mais il y a bien eu un paquet de films sur le conflit. Alors pourquoi pas un jeu ?
