|This Vietnam game uses the Duke Nukem graphic engine.
It began with the brilliant addon Platoon and, in the end, was developed
and released as its own game. It was the first FPS to be based on a real
war. In Germany, on account of the war representation
and shooting of persons, it was never distributed. You play a U.S. soldier
fighting the enemy in the jungles, riverbanks, and airfields of Vietnam.
Starting off with the standard-issue Colt 45 pistol and knife combination,
you'll come across much heavier weaponry as the game progresses, including
machine guns, rocket launchers and the always-effective grenade. The
computer-controlled Vietnamese are always cunning and the game has plenty
of levels to keep you occupied. Multiplayer support gives Nam an aspect of
teamwork, as you fight with other soldiers positioned around you and learn
important defensive tactics. The graphics indeed
have become quickly outdated but still together with the strong music
and exciting missions, in my opinion it's enough to recommend it particularly
as the only "war game" in the 3D area up to this time. Always one has
to pay attention in the jungle to hidden threats and even bombardments
and you could order also air raids. Part of the way, one is accompanied
by medics and radio officers.
