Vietcong: Purple Haze Review

IGN Entertainment
11 March 2010
  • Conclusion: As far as adaptations go, Vietcong: Purple Haze isn’t terrible. Some PC gamers would consider the game an utter failure in its console form, but you won’t find many Xbox players complaining incessantly about what was left out of the console version. You will, however, find the console fans bickering about the sluggish play, friendly AI glitches, and the overall lack of excitement that surround this title.

Vietcong Purple Haze

  • 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. Unfortunately, it doesn’t do a very good job with either.

Vietcong: Purple Haze

Thunderbolt Games
4 October 2004
  • Excerpt: Games based on the Vietnam War seem to be all the rage these days. In fact, in the span of just a few months the Xbox will have gone from being completely devoid of ëNam-themed titles to having five games based on the infamous conflict. Vietcong: Purple Haze , Gatheringís offering into this suddenly booming sub-genre, is a decent first person shooter with solid online play, but a lack of split-screen multiplayer, questionable AI and dated visuals keep it mired firmly in...

  • 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. I would recommend checking Vietcong: Purple Haze out, but rent before you buy.

Test : Vietcong Purple Haze

GameHope
12 October 2014
  • 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

Vietcong : Purple Haze

JeuxVideo.fr
2 August 2006
  • Excerpt: Après avoir visité la seconde guerre mondiale dans tous les sens, le nouveau dada des développeurs, c'est le Vietnam. Vietcong avait d'ailleurs plus ou moins ouvert le bal sur PC. Plus d'un an après, c'est au tour de la Xbox de goûter aux promenades en forêt mais pas question de ramasser les champignons, ils ont tendance à vous péter à la face.

  • 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
