    Although it has a lot to offer in terms of realism and the jungle atmosphere is quite immersive, the laughably buggy AI (teammates getting stuck in trenches is a common problem) and slow pace of some of the movement will deter a lot of people. This tried hard but was let out of the door too early -- and it's NOT as good as Delta Force: Blackhawk Down, a much more polished game.

    Good for sound, graphics (yes!), hence then atmosphere. F-ing atrocious for bugs - even with the latest patch! I would gladly punch the person who did Quality Assurance on this in the face repeatedly - and I've never done this in my life! Only because the rest of the game has such a different standard to the bugs... With the patches - who gives a toss if graphics glitches are fixed Good for sound, graphics (yes!), hence then atmosphere. F-ing atrocious for bugs - even with the latest patch!

With the patches - who gives a toss if graphics glitches are fixed for crappy SIS cards when you can still drop a grenade on your foot instead of throwing it and the enemy can walk and breathe underwater?! Dodgy bugs in category A! Expand

  1. One of its most remarkable accomplishments is the way gunfights play out like gunfights rather than shooting galleries. [July 2003, p.88]

    Excerpt forthcoming.
  3. Vietcong strays down the path between arcade shooter and tactical war simulator perfectly, resulting in a game that you’ll find hard to put down.
