Vietcong: Purple Haze


Vietcong: Purple Haze offers 28 missions through Vietnam, but the single-player story is compelling and well structured.

Vietcong: Purple Haze Review


VC:PH overall is an okay game. It's not a must own by any means. It might be worth a rental for you serious Vietnam war gamers. However with other Vietnam game's coming out soon this one is a little out of date.

Vietcong: Fist Alpha Review


Vietnam games are difficult to make. While the movies have generally been pretty well-liked and successful, even the best games based on the conflict wind up being frustrating, stupid, and downright un-fun. Last year's Vietcong was probably the best...

Vietcong: Fist Alpha is a tough expansion pack that's going to frustrate the hell out of many players, even with its many virtues. If you can get past the flawed AI, dated visuals, and immense difficulty, you'll find a pretty good game. Throw in some...

Vietcong: Purple Haze


You wait years for a game based on the controversial Vietnam War to be released, and then three come along at once. Eidos didn't really break into a sweat with Shellshock: Nam ‘67 and SCI failed to impress with the surprisingly below-par...

Vietcong: Purple Haze for Xbox


Pretty kewl game if you don't mind a second-rate shooter. Set in the Vietnam war, your soldier goes on various missions through the jungle locales trying to survive and take out enemy Vietcong supply depots. Most levels you're accompanied by a...

Compelling story and unique historical environment, not just a dumb and nameless shooter

Allies can get hung up on pathfinding and sometimes you need to babysit them, prodding them to continue

Vietcong: Purple Haze for Xbox


Whatever you do, DON"T BUY THIS "GAME"! After it loaded and the cheezy team began to move, I found myself alone in the bleached out jungle. I went back to see where the rest of the guys were. One was stuck on top of a big rock. He was walking but not...
