    This is a rare case in which a budget minded title is actually of more merit than many full priced titles currently on the market.

    Entertaining stuff. Well worth a look for "Cannon Fodder" veterans. [Dec 2007, p.85]

    At first the game may seem to take away a little bit of control with the weapon lock-on, but in the heat of the battle you'll feel lucky that it has your back. [Oct 2007, p.89]
  4. Operation: Vietnam doesn't win any bravery medals for its concept, but it's a well-trained, impressively executed idea that hits all the necessary targets.
  5. It does, however, offer plenty of gameplay for your money, particularly with the inclusion of bonus levels that offer a slightly different challenge to the main game. My only complaint is in the lack of any multiplayer mode.

I was looking for another isometric 3d shooter and this game is FUN. Its not historically accurate, its a shooter and the missions are challenging. This game won't disappoint given its price of only $20.00. Awesome. Its a keeper. Full Review »

    This is great fun - takes a while to get going (1st level is a bit slow) but then the action really kicks off.
