Men of Valor: The Vietnam War Review
8 February 2006
Excerpt: Here's a great idea. Dedicate significant amounts of money and time developing a game. Make it a first person shooter - they tend to be popular. To ensure it doesn't get any notable coverage at all, release it at the same time as Half Life 2 and Halo 2.
Excerpt: Another week, yet another game based on the Vietnam War. Surely, one of these titles is going to get it right sooner or later’ The failure count currently stands at three, with Vietcong: Purple Haze , Shellshock: ‘Nam 67 and Conflict: Vietnam failing to get the job done with anything other than...
Excerpt: Set in Vietnam from the period of 1965-1968, Men of Valor is told through the eyes of Dean Shepard, a young African-American Marine stationed at Danang. Delivered via letters that are sent back home, Dean details many of his missions and sorties in the brush and ruined cities of ‘Nam, which includes...
Summary: Of all the Vietnam-theme titles announced last year the one that showed the most promise was Vivendi’s . And for good reason, it was being helmed by 2015, the famed developers behind Electronic Arts’ masterpiece, .
Conclusion: The heritage is never far from the surface, as much like the way you played Jimmy Paterson in the early Medal of Honor games, in MoV you are Dean Shepard, farm boy recruit who is about to find out that joining up wasn’t such a good idea after all as he gets caught up in famous real battles such as...
Pros: The explosions are awesome., Authentic weapons., Nice attention to detail on weapons and vehicles., The sound captures the atmosphere perfectly., Plenty of multiplayer options., A heck of a challenge even on ‘easy’.
Cons: Dumb AI., Daft missions., Linear levels., Awful cut scenes., This game is way too tough for your average Marine – ‘cherries’ need not apply.
Conclusion: What it can't boast, though, is to be the best wargame FPS around. The AI is simply way too sloppy to make the spectacle look convincing, and the gameplay all too often throws up some quite unlikely, and unintentionally comical results.
Conclusion: Zudem sollten all jene, die um herausfordernde Spiele einen weiten Bogen machen gehörig Abstand von Men of Valor nehmen. Wer denkt, er könne mir nichts dir nichts durch die einzelnen Missionen latschen, liegt falsch.
Conclusion: Men Of Valor tar oss med tilbake til Vietnam i 1965. Du er Dean Shepard, en fersk soldat med absolutt ingen krigserfaring, og du blir kastet rett ut i kampens hete for å slåss mot hissige Vietcongs som spretter frem fra busker og trær.
