  1. The ability to fire behind cover effectively in Vietcong is a notable feature lacking in almost every shooter game to date. [May 2004, p.82]
  2. As far as the controls go, I was left a little disappointed.
  3. Offers a glimpse at what American soldiers went through in Vietnam 40 years ago. But unfortunately it doesn't meet the normal expectations of a successful FPS and will quickly become another game in the crowd.
  4. Not only do you have the massively huge missions from the original title, but also included is the Fist Alpha expansion pack that brings on even more weapons, missions, and fun.
  5. An aesthetic surprise with great visuals and sound; and a huge disappointment of Gameplay and AI.
