  • Excerpt: You wait years for a game based on the controversial Vietnam War to be released, and then three come along at once. Eidos didn’t really break into a sweat with Shellshock: Nam ‘67 and SCI failed to impress with the surprisingly below-par Conflict: Vietnam .

Vietcong Purple Haze

10 November 2004
  • Excerpt: Vietcong: Purple Haze is a first-person shooter that just can’t seem to make up its mind. At some points, the game seems to be more in favor of the realism found in Rainbow Six. However, the gameplay will then flip to a much more run and gun style gameplay similar to Call of Duty.

Vietcong: Purple Haze

2 August 2006
  • Conclusion: Sadly there are only 3 co-op levels and 9 in total, although more downloadable ones are promised. Regardless of the number of levels, thanks to a solid game engine and excellent map design VPH is one of the better Xbox Live shooters, has plenty of people playing it at the time of writing, and is...
  • Pros: Some good, atmospheric levels., Loads of authentic weapions., Some cool music., A good solid challenge to finish., Multiplayer is pretty good and has some cleverly designed maps., Downloadable content.
  • Cons: Looks like a 2-year old PC game., The Vietnam war sucks - you can't "win"., Some dumb AI on both sides, and squad mates that are apparently deaf spoil things too, but at least these things break the tension., Some horribly linear levels bring back bad memories of Medal Of Honor: Rising Sun.

  • Conclusion: Lowdown Vietcong: Purple Haze is nice switch up from other war games, and it's a realistic as you can get. The graphics run a little below par, but if you can handle the gritty look and sometimes doggy AI you'll be rewarded with a great experience.

Vietcong: Purple Haze Review

7 October 2004
  • Conclusion: The one point of interest for Xbox gamers is perhaps the Xbox Live support (with PS2 gamers also catered for), featuring 10 player support over 10 maps - half of which are multiplayer specific, half from the game itself (including the two new single player maps).

  • Conclusion: C’est d’autant plus dommage qu’il possédait quelques bonnes idées, un semblant d’ambiance et qu’il ne tombait pas dans le patriotisme facile ou un quelconque manichéisme, propres à bien des jeux du genre.
  • Pros: dépassé techniquement, textures affreuses, alliasing, intelligence artificielle, durée des missions
  • Cons: la bande son, quelques bonnes idées

Test : Vietcong Purple Haze

9 October 2004
  • Summary: Sorti voila bien longtemps sur Pc, Vietcong débarque sur XBOX. Autant vous l'avouer tout de suite, les petits gens de Coyote ont réussi à mettre en valeur les atouts du jeu ; mais arrivent aussi à faire ressortir ses défauts.
  • Pros: Le multi
  • Cons: C'est vraiment très moche pour le coup..., Le solo : son ambiance loupée, L'IA des coéquipiers comme des ennemis
