  1. One of its most remarkable accomplishments is the way gunfights play out like gunfights rather than shooting galleries. [July 2003, p.88]
  2. Even though there are a few infuriating missions and some out-of-place voice acting, it feels fairly genuine and is a high quality, unique addition to your shooter collection.
  3. Vietcong is everything Platoon should’ve been: realistic, immersive, tense, reasonably flexible, and thoroughly addictive. How ironic that two Czech developers should be the first to create a truly brilliant Vietnam game.

    This game is really good, with action packed jungle warfare the fun never ends, however, there are certain problems that has casted a shadow over this game, bad things.... 1) the guys at GOD Games have shipped a whole lot of bugs while releasing vietcong 2) Graphics are overall not got, it is quite outdated 3) some AI concept of players is not that good. good things..... 1) Multiplayer is very fun and awsome to play with 2) alot of sigleplayer missions to keep you challenged 3) good level environment. 4) sound is good, also weapons are great overall this game's not that bad :)) but b4 you buy this game, try Men of valor first another FPS based on the Vietnam war by 2015.

    Best FPS shooter I have played, ever. I like that's it's a bit more realistic than comparable games. Also, I much prefer the fighting in the jungle and open landscape to the dungeons, houses and subways of other games. MUCH better than Black Hawk down, also. Funny the game mags gave it mad marks while all who play it love it. Maybe the distributor doesn'T buy anough ads to please the game mags. Full Review »
