ATMOSPHERE...

JSV, Amazon
22 January 2006
  • Summary: FPS & Single-Player-Fan Fun. I'm a fan of single-player action. There's just enough story line in VIETCONG to tie the mission concepts together. Some maps have better grapics, textures, etc., than others, but the atmosphere truly prevails throughout.

war is hell

  • Summary: Ever since I bought this game, my gaming ways changed dramatically. If you are looking for a realistic Vietnam War game, this is it. If you have ever seen the movie, "We Were Soldiers," it is very similar, except for the amount of soldiers. The graphics are very realistic.

  • Summary: This game is really good. It is not the best first person shooter out there but it's single player missions are amazing and (though i dont know because i have a crappy internet connection) i hear it's multiplayer is pretty great too.

Gamers with brains and talent welcome

Nathanael D. Robinson "Dewfather", Amazon

  • Summary: Patch? Why? "I fired 20 rounds into an enemy's head and he was still coming." Supposedly there is a patch offered to correct the "unkillable" enemies. Well uh...try actually aiming instead of spraying. I've popped enemies dead in the head from across a canyon with the AK-47, one shot, one kill.

Best FPS; environment and squad tactics

Scrub, Amazon
7 February 2003
  • Summary: Counter Strike, Rogue Spear, Ghost Recon, Raven Shield (demo); this beats them all. The environment is awesome, first game where the environment is a pervaisive factor in gameplay. Crawl in water, through ferns, hide in bushes. Multiplayer action is awesome on broadband; 50 players in a battle.

Jungle Warfare to the Max

  • Summary: You want jungle warfare this is it! You want a taste of Vietnam especially the highland or I should say the "I Corp" then this is it. The only thing missing is the red dust from the dustoff....I tried the demo version and it brought tears back to my eyes..

USA In Vietnam

  • Excerpt: I bought this game several years ago and have been playing it on and off ever since. Vietcong is perhaps the best Vietnam-based FPS I have ever played, and will ever play. Despite there being a sequal, Vietcong 2, I still feel this game offers much more enjoyment.
  • Pros: Great mulitplayer options .
  • Cons: Poor graphics for today .

THE BEST NAM SHOOTER YET! Good fun.

  • Conclusion: Although half life & far cry etc are great games, the storeis can wear a bit thin after while. If you like films like Platoon, full metal jacket etc (some of my favorites) you'll love this game. It is getting on a bit now, but even today (2-5-2007) it looks pretty good, especially the weapons.

As close to Platoon as you'll get!

  • Conclusion: I concur with the 1st review. Vietcong is a solid FPS with great weapons, detailed environments and challenging AI. MP is very satisfying and supports teamplay extremely well. I don't know if there is much of a community left now, but the SP campaign is largely very involving.
