AKs Ver M16s

me.net, Ciao
23 June 2004
  • Excerpt: "AKs Ver M16s Viet Cong is the one of the best games on jungle warfare. The game is based on the Vietnamese jungle warfare where the Vietcong's and the Americans fight for there lives in a teem battle. With the Americans getting there ass kicked by the Vietnamese with far from accurate AK47s and rubbish p shooters. This game is a very cleverly made with lots of original ideas. I would say that it is well worth buying. the multy player options for ...

" Gung ho for N.F.Gs"

  • Excerpt: "...Charlie. However, from the off Vietcong draws you slap bang into the sweaty clutches of Jungle warfare during 1967. Heaven without technology for the sniper's amongst you!!! Terrific graphics accompany a well thought out story line that takes you through the thick of firefights accompanied by a special ops team who's foul language and brutality know no bounds. A very enjoyable game I found myself ducking the occasional wild round. Jumping everytime ...
  • Pros: Heart pumping action from the off .

Vietnam in all it's gritty glory

  • Excerpt: "...pile of logs as a Vietcong machine-gun rips the logs to splinters in front of you! Imagine crawling through the tunnels that the Vietcong have tirelessly dug out, finding secret rooms and booby traps! Imagine seeing your temmates head explode and shooting at the Vietcong shouting 'This is for you, Jonny!' You can do all of this, and more in this game. As the game starts, you are flying through the air, talking to another recruit about how you are ...

Vietcong - incredibly overlooked

smooth_cr..., Ciao
22 April 2004
  • Excerpt: "...game. So when I bought Vietcong I decided to approach it with some caution. Expecting a bit of a let down I settled into Nui Pek camp in the central highlands (the setting for the game) as Hawkins; a green beret with a distinct hate for the Viet Cong guerrillas. As I started getting into the game I suddenly realised how good it was – exciting and rewarding gameplay, beautiful jungle locations, a vast array of incredibly detailed weaponry and equipment, ...
  • Pros: Incredibly realistic, captures the setting of Vietnam very well
  • Cons: Slightly repetitive at times

Veitcong A good game?

Rabidmont..., Ciao
4 July 2003
  • Excerpt: "Veitcong is one of the lastest FPS games out, but does it do justice to one of the first conflicts to have extensive TV coverage? I would have to say yes. Most people have seen video footage and photos of this war, so we have some idea what it should feel like and this game does justice to it, there are plenty of different character class's like a typical soldier, Machine Gunner, Sniper but also sapper, who can lay booby traps and Radio operator ...
  • Pros: Excellent Gameplay, good atmosphere
  • Cons: Difficulty levels could be better

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.

THE BEST NAM SHOOTER YET! Good fun.

Rinston, Play.com
25 April 2003
  • 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. Few first person shooters actually feel like your fireing a gun, but this game does (as much as a game can).

Würdiger Nachfolger

Schoeneberg30, Ciao
20 October 2012
  • Summary: Vietcong 2 ist der Nachfolger des 2 Jahre zuvor erschienenen Vietcong. Oftmals sind die Nachfolger eines Spiels eine Enttäuschung für die Fans, bei diesem war dem aber nicht so. Der Zweite Teil war eigentlich ziemlich ähnlich dem 1. Gameplay, Grafik, Umgebung und Waffen ähnelten Stark. Aber was sind die Unterschiede? Hauptunterschied ist, dass man im 1. Teil fast ausschließlich im Dschungel unterwegs war, im 2.
  • Pros: Gute Grafik, gute Story und Gameplay
  • Cons: Eigentlich nichts .  .  .

Guter Vietnam Shooter

Schoeneberg30, Ciao
20 October 2012
  • Summary: Das Spiel Vietcong kam 2003 für den PC auf den Markt und landete wenige Jahre später in meiner Sammlung. Es ist ein Ego Shooter, das heißt, man spielt in der Ich Perspektive und sieht nur das Gewehr am unteren Bildschirmrand. Das Spiel lässt einen die Ereignisse um den Vietnamkrieg nach empfinden und ist dadurch ein ein kleines wenig Geschichtsunterricht und nicht nur kopfloses Geballer, denn häufig muss man mit Taktik vorgehen und schleichen.
  • Pros: Gute Grafik, gute Story, reichhaltiges Arsenal
  • Cons: Eigentlich nichts .

  • Summary: Klasse Spiel, aber in englisch. Habe Schwierigkeiten schnell genug die deutschen Untertitel zu lesen. Tipp an alle Käufer: Die Tastaturbelegung so zu wählen wie bei evtl. vorhandenden Ego-Shootern.
