    This game simply sucks ass. It came a long time after Vietcong and a short time before Medal of Honor: Paficic Assault and both games featured better graphics and better gameplay than Men of Valor. Okay, Men of Valor actually has nice jungle graphics. But everything else is simply bad. The characters look bad, the weapons look bad, the missions are simply unrealistic bullshit, so is the This game simply sucks ass. It came a long time after Vietcong and a short time before Medal of Honor: Paficic Assault and both games featured better graphics and better gameplay than Men of Valor. Okay, Men of Valor actually has nice jungle graphics. But everything else is simply bad. The characters look bad, the weapons look bad, the missions are simply unrealistic bullshit, so is the fighting, the scripted sequences are animated like in the first 3d rpgs, the 'innovative' health system is stupid and even the music by Inon Zur seriously disappointed me. Okay - whether you like the way the story is told - that's a question of taste. But I simply cannot explain to myself how this game could find any fans at all and how it's possible, that the game is so much worse than Medal of Honor: Allied Assault - after all, it's the same people who have been working on both these games. I give the game three points for nice jungle gfx and the attempt to touch topics which have not been part of any other wargame before - but anything else about it is simply crap (starting with the title which expresses something absolutely different than the game itself).

    Without a doubt the most frustrating game I've ever played in my life. There were so many times I'd have to do the exact same sequence at least 20 to 30 times before I found out the pattern of the enemy A.I. In addition, EVERY TIME you die, you have forward past this cutscene where some officer reads a letter aloud to your parents about you death...EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU DIE, Without a doubt the most frustrating game I've ever played in my life. There were so many times I'd have to do the exact same sequence at least 20 to 30 times before I found out the pattern of the enemy A.I. In addition, EVERY TIME you die, you have forward past this cutscene where some officer reads a letter aloud to your parents about you death...EVERY SINGLE TIME YOU DIE, which is extremely often. In addition, you're team will frequently be given objectives which are exceedingly difficult if immoral in scope, and you will be the only one that will do more than sit behind a tree and look blankly into the wilderness. Every now and then, one of you computer teamates will run out in front of you and shoot in the wrong direction. Then, in frustration, you'll realize the United States' victory in the Vietnam war solely relies on you and you'll run out into the battlefield to accomplish the objective and immediately get blown away by phantom enemies, regardless of whether or not you find cover or hit the deck, you're dead. Then, the sequence will restart and you'll have to backtrack 20 to 30 minutes, much like a Super Mario brothers game. Oh yes, and you'll undoubtdedly get frustrated and end the game only to return later to a save game feature that places you and the VERY beginning of the campaign meaning you have now backtracked about an hour. For some reason, the auto-save only works as long as you don't exit the game....The dumbest save game system I've ever seen. It's unfortunate because this game had an incredible amount of potential and you can see it when you play it. Ultimately, however, it's a complete failure, worse than MOH: Rising Sun, and that's a tall order. I wouldn't recommend buying this game. Expand

  1. Much better than the Xbox incarnation, offering improvements in graphics, control and even slight AI improvements.
  2. A competent historically based shooter with some unique features and an occasional flash of brilliance, making it one of the few quality Vietnam War FPS to date.
  3. Great gunplay, shame about the A.I. [Jan 2005, p.94]
