  • Summary: Men of Valor follows an American marine through the early stages of the conflict in Vietnam to the Tet Offensive. In historically accurate scenarios, you must play a variety of roles in which you'll man the door gun on a Huey helicopter, steer a riverboat along enemy-infested shores, battle your way through enemy tunnel complexes, and call down fire as a forward observer. Mission types include pilot rescues, recon patrols, POW rescue, and search-and-destroy ops. Expand

  1. A sublime creation as a whole. It is a solid FPS which pays homage to Vietnam with a pixel perfect depiction of the horrors of war. And that, in our eyes, entitles it to be crowned King of Nam.
  2. The pace and AI can, occasionally, feel erratic and it isn't the most original game in the world, but if you can forgive the dubious politics, and simply lose yourself in the action, then Men Of Valor is the Medal Of Honor game many of us have been waiting for.
  3. It may not offer the best view of the war in terms of realism, but the action flows thick and fast in this hybrid World War II/Vietnam shooter.
  4. Enemies blend into the jungle so well that by the time you see them, they've probably started shooting at you. This took my normal "run into the middle of the area and fire like a madman" battle plan and changed it to "tip-toe through Vietnam, through the hostiles, very quietly" (so I wimped out, so what).
  5. Players limited to offline play most likely won't get a lot out of this game once they beat it, if they can motivate themselves to do so.
  6. The thing is, these niggles and annoyances really add up throughout the game, making the last few levels a chore to play through.
  7. The poor loading times make the player wish he was stuck in a jungle, at least then he would have a machete to take out his frustrations with.
