Nam-1975 est sans aucun doute le meilleur jeu du genre sur toutes machines confondues. Pour un coup d'essai c'est un coup de maître.
GameFan Magazine
Once again, a Neo Geo classic that today's games by SNK can't match. Nam ties in an intense story along with crisp, detailed graphics, explosive sound effects and perfect challenge to bring you an awesome game. if you don't have it, find it.
The Video Game Critic
This early Neo Geo title delivers some serious two player shooting satisfaction. You view the action from behind your soldier, blasting enemy troops, tanks, helicopters, boats, and anything else that comes into view. You can even level entire buildings and topple huge bosses. The A button is used to fire your machine gun, B throws grenades, and C is used to run sideways. Running is not only useful for evading incoming fire, but also to grab power ups that rain down around you. A variety of backdrops and enemies keep the action fresh, and there's even an occasional hostage to save. NAM offers a limited number of continues, so you won't finish it in one sitting. If I have one complaint, it's that the action tends to get very difficult very fast. The graphics aren't the best you'll see on the Neo Geo, but the tremendous destruction is quite satisfying. A memory card can be used to save your place. Fun to play and fairly inexpensive, NAM 1975 is highly recommended.

Neo Geo At Its Best! NAM 1975 ist zwar das erste Spiel fürs Neo Geo, aber absolut nicht das schlechteste; zwar entspricht die Grafik nicht mehr dem heutigen Standard, ist aber im großen und ganzen so flüssig und abwechslungsreich, daß man technisch nicht meckern kann. Die Musikstücke sind auch nicht von schlechten Eltern und begleiten das hektische Ballergeschehen mit tollen Rhythmen. Spielerisch hat NAM für jeden halbwegs ambitionierten Hobby-Rambo eine Menge zu bieten. Neben sechs umfangreichen Levels ist der Zwei-Spieler-Modus der absolute Clou des Spiels. Denn zu zweit macht jedes Spiel bekantlich doppelt soviel Spaß. Wie schon Magician Lord gehört auch NAM zu den Neo Gen „Low cost“-Games und ist auf alle Fälle eine Kaufüberlegung wert.
A pesar de esto, estamos en presencia de un juego por lo demás adictivo, con una calidad más que correcta para la época y uno de los mejores (sino el mejor) de las primeras hornadas que salieron para Neo Geo. Sin dudas, invita a ser jugado con frecuencia a lo largo del tiempo sin cansar demasiado. Un verdadero clásico.
Digital Press - Classic Video Games
As the Geo's very first title, this one holds it's place in history and most people probably own it for this fact alone. The outstanding gameplay makes it a worthwhile purchase, but actually beating this one will require a level of dedication unlike any other. Of course, if YOU paid $300 for a single game, would you really want to beat it in one sitting?
Jouer à NAM-1975 n'est pas une bonne façon de célébrer les trente ans de la fin de la guerre du Viêt Nam (qui célèbre ça de toute façon ??), ni de célébrer SNK en tant qu'éditeur de jeu. Au mieux on y rejouera dans un fort élan nostalgique parce que c'était l'un des titres qui nous laissaient rêveur à la sortie de la Neo Geo (encore que celui-là, c'était déjà un peu moins le rêve que les autres, même à l'époque); on y rejouera parce que ce genre de jeu est devenu plus rare encore que les beat, les shoot, et les 'em up, et puis parce qu'avec son mode deux joueurs, il y a toujours de quoi s'amuser un peu. Mais, à cause de son imagination somme toute restreinte, de la difficulté des derniers niveaux et les soucis de maniabilité qui en découlent, NAM-1975 n'aura guère l'occasion de ressortir plus souvent de sa boîte.

NAM 75 is fun for exactly the right reasons, but with only an hour of game play and repetitive levels it's hard to recommend this tour of duty. But if you're the type of person looking for an action-packed game the likes you never see any more, then NAM 75 is your ticket to a good time.
All Game Guide
The stages are long, and usually you'll only be able to come up with one special weapon. That means most of the time you'll be stuck with your standard gun. A few pick-ups are really interesting, like the one that doubles your shots and the blonde bimbo you can rescue who runs alongside you shooting at things. In short, the game offers some intense and fun shooting action. If, that is, you can overlook the many flaws.
