  • Summary: In 1968 the U.S. Army assigned a young sniper to the 5th Special Forces compound in Nha Tong, Vietnam. His mission: disrupt the enemy?s command structure, scout Viet Cong positions, and ambush the enemy in the dead of night. For him, success depended on a rifle, a target, and a clear Line of Sight.In LINE OF SIGHT: VIETNAM your job is to locate elusive enemy soldiers and pick them off one-by-one. Whether patiently waiting for the enemy to show himself or delivering a pre-emptive strike, the method is the same - be quick, be quiet, and be careful. That's what will get you home alive. Thick vegetation in fully detailed environments provide cover for you... or the enemy. Select the right weapon for the job from over 12 authentic firearms. Face 12 missions alone or play cooperatively in multiplayer games. [Infogrames] Expand

  1. Not wholly innovative, but a rewarding tactical shooter.
  2. An intense and unrelenting stealth shooter, and it treats its subject matter with respect. [July 2003, p.85]
  3. Though the sound effects like gunfire, explosions, and footsteps were pretty elementary, the environmental effects like thunder and rain, together with the graphics had me wanting to pop up an umbrella or find a big leaf to hide under to get out of the rain.
  4. Despite the fact that Vietnam's overall presentation, its price ($19.99 USD), and especially the marketing campaign (or the lack of thereof) surrounding the game may've indicated that this is just another value title by Infogrames, the quality of the gameplay, and Vietnam's intense in-game atmosphere painted a different picture.
  5. Though it's certainly not a bad game, Line of Sight: Vietnam isn't as ambitious as "Deadly Dozen: Pacific Theater," and its environments aren't as interesting.
  6. 65
    It's just not solid, well-rounded, or exciting enough to play through happily, nor does it have any single feature or group of features that are amazing enough to completely outshine the horrendous artificial intelligence and insipid combat.
  7. The VC are dirty cheaters in this lush but restrictive and nonsensical portrayal of sniper life in the Vietnam War. [July 2003, p.78]

    Unfortunately, LOS Vietnam is not as fun as Deadly Dozen Pacific Theatre - it's plainly sneaking around in the bushes just to snipe those VCs (better known as dirty cheaters). Expand
