    SCi have done a marvellous job with the high detail, which comes across well in both the audio and visuals.

    The only weak point is the graphics, which seem a bit unpolished. Otherwise, Conflict: Vietnam is one mean mother tour of duty. [Nov 2004, p.90]
  3. A polished enough game of soldiers that never quite manages to thrill. Technically better than other Conflict games but just doesn't gel as well. [Playstation 2 Max]
  4. It’s the coolest Nam game of 2004.

Having enjoyed both Conflict Desert Storm and, to a lesser degree, Desert Storm 2 however I was enticed by the promise of playing the main campaign in four player spilt screen mode. If only I had hired the game first!

    The setting itself didn't exactly help. Upon its release in 2004 Vietnam seemed to be the setting for virtually every new FPS and, as with nearly every other attempt at the time, this setting was completely wasted. Why surround the players with dense forest if invisible walls prevent you from leaving the path set out by the games designers?

    The games biggest problem however is something that irritates me more than virtually anything else in gaming, endlessly re-spawning enemies. This device is still employed in some modern shooters but here even advancing through the level ceases to put a stop the never-ending barrage of bullets coming your way. In the end the only option is to run around the level completing each objective as quickly as possible with no opportunity to employ any team based tactics as was the case in the two Desert Storm Entries. It is rare from me to give anything a one out of ten rating but Conflict Vietnam is an absolute waste of time and money.
