  1. Though the Vietcong engine is beginning to show its age, it can more than hold its own with the other realistic wartime shooters it currently shares rack space with.
  2. Vietcong: Fist Alpha is a tough expansion pack that's going to frustrate the hell out of many players, even with its many virtues.

    There's really no way of getting around it. Vietcong and the expansion offer a type of gameplay in a shooter that you can't really find in any other setting.

    If you loved Vietcong, you'll probably love this expansion; just don't get your hopes up about finding anything groundbreaking.

Call me a purist or what have you, but I could have done without the consistent cursing throughout the gameplay, though I assume this all the more adds to the 'realism' of the Vietnam War setting. The environments seemed very much more real than the orig. game. Full Review »

    I thought Fist Alpha was too short and the developers could have added a few more missions than that.
