Did You Know?


The Vietnam war started in 1964 and lasted 11 years until 1975. The trailer begins in 1968, most likely the Tet Offensive where the Vietnamese struck hard across the entire republic for the first time, showing the Americans that this war was a long way from over. The North Vietnamese Conventionally trained army. Along with unconventional Vietcong(NLF) guerrillas could unite and co-ordinate a strategic attack against targets all over the country at once. This was a game changer. All Of which was covertly supported by assistance from USSR Spetznatz Special Forces and KGB intelligence as a proxy war against American foreign policy. See more »

User Reviews

Down step for sure, but still worth a look into.
14 November 2020 | by johnsonlogan-68738See all my reviews

The beginning of the game is not all too special, it seems like ActionVision thought that making another game in Vietnam would sale but they didn't put much quality into it. The characters are not likable cliches of the time period and the game play is just like any other modern Call Of Duty. By the end of the game I have had a change of opinion, it stepped up by the end of the game. The story telling went from bland and repetitive to something from a Bio Shock game, in fact I would even say ActionVision did rip off Bio Shock, but it kinda worked. Is this game the best? No, but it still will hold its own. The game would have been a lot better tho if it didn't have hit markers though, I despise hit markers, I don't need to have an X shape thingy pop up when ever I shoot an enemy, it takes away from the game play. Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2019 didn't have hit markers, and it's better that way. I would honestly give this game an 8 if it weren't for those autism inducing X shaped emblems. The game is worth a look into for its campaign, not as twisty as the first game but it will throw you off.
