  1. Despite all these valid complaints, we still have a lot of affection for what Vietcong's trying to achieve, but the sorry truth is the console version just doesn't deliver on the promise of the PC original.
  2. It is the very definition of average. There are some nice ideas lurking within and if they had been implemented better then the title could have been far more enjoyable.
  3. Naturally, mediocre graphics can be overlooked if the gameplay is there, but some considerable problems hinder this aspect of the game as well.
