This review is from: Vietcong (Video Game)
We all know of the real vietcong, but this is your chance to exsperience all the firefights, snipers, traps and bombings from the saftey of your own homes. The computer are really intelligent (which makes a change from normal) which means that your actually going to have trouble killing them. There's special features such as horiffic traps and mines. You can either play as the vietnese, or the Americans. The scenary is absouloutly AMAZING. There's very, very dense foilidge and networks of caves and hide outs. This is a simple case of look two meters ahead of you in the open and shoot somebody, and it's not the case of somebody saying "act dead carefully" and been able to run around like a mad man, this is a game in which you have to treat things as real life. You can play dead to fool your enemies which is great for that moment in which you are surrounded. If you do ever get tired of going for the computer, then go on line and join in the multiplayer, this I can promise you never gets boring, it's brilliant. There is a realistic hud view in which there is no aids on the screen, and I mean nothing. No health meters, no ammunition counters, no crosshairs in the middle of the screen for easy playing, it means it's like what you would see. To aim your person will actually lift the gun up to his face and use the scope/aiming marks on the end of the gun. It's realism is amazing, and it has a great range of weapons. The only bad point with it which I can find is the sound. It may not be the game, and it may just be mine, but one or two others on the internet have the same problem, they say when using an automatic, there will be one bang, but you will continue to fire rapid, but no sound follows. This means it's like firing a rifle, then going into silent mode for a bit afterwards. Like I say though, don't let it put you off. You forget about it after a couple of times of doing it. It's a great game which you'll never get bored of.
