  • Summary: Vietnam, 1967. You are Specialist Heavy Gunner Grant of the 6th Platoon US Marine Corps. Weeks earlier on a routine search and clear mission, members of your platoon were ambushed and taken prisoner by the Black Skulls, an elite North Vietnamese unit under the command of Colonel Trung also known as the ?butcher of Bac Ninh?. Your mission is to find the hidden POW camp and rescue your buddies?and perhaps exact a little revenge along the way. [Brainbox Games] Expand

  1. For a couple of afternoons it's quite fun, but without multiplayer, there is just no re-playability here. If this title had been released about 3-4 years ago it would have scored an 8 or so. But with today's games it just doesn't compare.
  2. As a pure, seven-hour-long shooting gallery, Marine Heavy Gunner has its moments. But so do a thousand other games, many of which also sport multiplayer modes--something this game lacks.
  3. A technically functional first-person shooter that may prove to expand our expletive vocabulary and, in turn, will leave any seasoned gamer with a sour taste in their mouth.

    A respectable attempt to echo good game design, but it ends up reminding people of the better games they'd rather be playing.
  5. It is very rare to find a modern FPS that has absolutely no multiplayer compatibility at all but I guess there’s a first for everything.
  6. The actual gameplay and overall feel of moving your character is somewhat reminiscent of the feel of the Unreal series but nowhere near the same level of fluidity.
