    SCi's highly acclaimed squad-based shooter leaves the desert and heads to the jungle to bring the horrors of 'Nam to PS2.

    Admired for its tactical squad-based gameplay, well thought out missions and cunning enemy AI, the Conflict series has long been a favourite among discerning PS2 warmongers. Following two highly successful tours of duty in the Gulf War, the series is turning back the clock and engaging in one of the bloodiest conflicts of modern times - the Vietnam War.

    You'll be controlling a squad of four US soldiers, separated from their unit during the Tet Offensive of '68. Your goal is to get them all back to friendly lines in one piece, but that's easier said than done; hostile terrain and a determined, ruthless 'invisible' enemy make the task a perilous one. Conflict: Vietnam's 14 engaging missions will have your boys rescuing hostages from villages, creeping through undergrowth and manning guns on heavily armoured river boats.

    Adapting to your surroundings and situation is key to survival. As with previous Conflict games, your squad has an array of artillery at its disposal, but you'll also need to make use of tanks, boats and armaments abandoned by the Viet-Cong. By way of a final word of caution, tread carefully; enemy booby traps, including punji stake pit traps and grenade trip wires, lie in wait and can scupper your mission in an instant.

    • Control a squad of four US soldiers, all with different abilities, and guide them to survival


    • 14 missions across a wide range of environments, including villages, temple ruins and rivers


    • Struggle to survive against all odds in a hostile environment with an ever-present 'invisible' enemy

    "The combat is intense and the language is vintage 'Nam. Hell, they even got the music right." – PSM Review, November 2004

    "...a good, solid action game with a compelling story, nonstop action, and a deep, dark jungle atmosphere that's easy to get lost in." – GMR Review, November 2004

    "My favorite aspect of Conflict: Vietnam is, of course, its RPG element...Emotional investment in the characters of a video game is always a good thing." – PSE2 Review, November 2004

    Conflict: Vietnam is a squad based action game that puts players in the shoes of four barely trained 101st Airborne soldiers who are caught countless miles behind enemy lines during the 1968 Tet Offensive. It is up to the player to use all four members of the squad and utilize their different abilities in order to successfully traverse through booby trap filled terrain, loaded with North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers. The objective isn't to win the war; the objective is to make it out alive.

    • The third game in the hugely successful Conflict series.
    • Fourteen enormous missions will take players deep into the Vietnamese jungle, through small villages, into ruined temples, and down Viet Cong tunnel complexes.

    • Use performance-based points after each mission to develop your characters in 9 skill categories such as Sniper, Medic, and Demolitions.
    • A revitalized control scheme allows context sensitive commands such as giving covering fire, guarding civilians, and flanking enemies.

    • An era-specific arsenal of over 20 weapons including assault rifles, mortars, and .50 caliber machine guns.
    • A wide range of vehicles puts your squad behind the wheel of APCs, jeeps, tanks, helicopters and river boats.
