    It sucks (a lot) you have to wait 10 minutes in a loading time then in the first level you have to follow some slowass crackerjack around called your pointman and fight like 4 people it is not catchy at all. you would get more kicks out of chess.

  1. Vietcong could suck the sheet metal from a Sherman tank at 500 yards. This is by far the worst game on the PlayStation 2 and the dumb bastard that pays forty dollars for this lackluster frisbee deserves every second of the torment that it spits out.
  2. Pteredon's seminal Vietnam War-themed first-person shooter has been thoroughly retooled by a different design team. Though a few of the changes are constructive, the new developer, Coyote, has generally made a mess of what used to be a good game.
  3. The A.I. problem is magnified with the previously mentioned broad orders, there are too many times when you need that precision control expected of commanding soldiers.
