Conflict: Vietnam bietet eine wirklich packende Spielatmosphäre. Mängel wie KI-Schwächen werden durch die hervorragende Optik und realistische Soundkulisse (abgesehen von der schlechten Sprachqualität im Spiel) wett gemacht. Der Spieler fühlt sich, als wäre er mitten in dem berüchtigten Dschungelkrieg gelandet und muss nun ums nackte Überleben kämpfen. Das Geschehen geht einfach unter die Haut. Die dargebotenen Missionen stellen definitiv eine Herausforderung dar und wurden zudem abwechslungsreich konzipiert. Aufgewertet wird das Spektakel außerdem durch den famosen Coop-Modus für bis zu vier Spieler.

Tense, surprisingly immersive, tough to play - even nasty at times (to the extent that I needed regular breaks from it), Conflict Vietnam kept dragging me back – maybe that’s an indication of how good it is, maybe not - one thing’s for sure I won’t be playing it through several times like I did with the two Desert Storms – it was a real battle to complete (on the 'Medium' setting), and for me wasn’t as enjoyable a gaming experience as its predecessors – but maybe it deserves extra kudos for that.

Overall the game isn't for everyone, fans of the conflict series will of course like this game, for those looking for a realistic vietnam game, this is a good one. For those look for a fast paced action shooter where you can control everything might not be too fond of this game. I give it a 7.9 out of 10.

Sound off, soldiers, it’s that time again. That’s right, it’s time to head back into the steamy jungles of Vietnam to fight off the Communist threat and to liberate these kind folks from the Northern Vietnamese forces that put the French army to shame. I won’t lie to you; we’ve been down this path before when you were feeling a little Shellshock and your vision a little blurry from all that Purple Haze but this time it’s different. This time it’s Conflict: Vietnam, a different tour into the jungles. You’re not alone, though. You have friends and they’ll watch your back but does this necessarily mean you’ll come out of this experience feeling satisfied? I suggest you read this report then, soldier, it might just fill you in on what you need to know.

Conflict: Vietnam hat bei mir gleich von Anfang an ein Wechselbad der Gefühle ausgelöst: »Mmmm, toller Soundtrack. Uuuuh, was sind denn das für hässliche Gesichter? Hey, coole Umgebung! Wääääääh, hat das Tutorial denn gar kein Ende? Hoi, gute Sprachausgabe. Neeein, wer hat denn die Steuerung verbrochen?« - und das war gerade mal das Ende der ersten Mission! Danach war ich aufgrund des gemäßigten Tempos und der spannend designten Aufträge wirklich guter Dinge, aber es folgte doch nur ein Absturz. Liebe Pivotals: Die Unart der endlos nachwachsenden Gegner-Scharen fällt mittlerweile unter die Genfer Spielekonventionen, und wird mit »Wok WM« nicht unter zwei Wochen bestraft! All die Spannung, all die Motivation, all die aufgrund der gewöhnungsbedürftigen Steuerung heruntergeschluckte Wut wird durch diesen Design-Klops heftig in Mitleidenschaft gerissen.

Even without playing the PC version I would have to guess Conflict: Vietnam plays significantly better on the PC than it does on the Xbox. The controls are cramped, the AI questionable, and the pacing and gameplay seems more geared toward an action-shooter than a stealthy military sim. As bad as this all might sound, Conflict: Vietnam is arguably still a better game than both Vietcong: Purple Haze and Shellshock Nam ‘67. I did like the four-man cooperative approach to the gameplay and the entire premise of a group of soldiers lost in the jungles of Vietnam is unique and captivating. Give it a rental before you buy and hold your breath for the upcoming Men of Valor.

All in all, the action does get intense, and if anything else, having to keep your eye on your comrades in a way highlights the grim fight for survival and tight-knit nature that all soldiers need in battle.

Game Over Online
There are some great elements and firefight sequences in Conflict: Vietnam but you just don’t see them enough. And when you do, it’s sometimes offset by other factors that ultimately mire Conflict: Vietnam’s better traits into gameplay quagmire. Instead of an exciting battle, you find yourself slogging through the game. Come to think of it, that’s what the Americans did to get themselves out of Vietnam.

To be fair, this title does present one of the better-looking jungles on console. Buying new skills for your characters is cool, too, but still not enough to save this from mediocrity.

A solidly average game whose few original ideas are compromised by screwy controls, some pacing problems, and a punishing save-game system. Conflict: Vietnam is the best of the recent spate of Vietnam War-themed shooters. Unfortunately, it earns that distinction primarily because of how bad the competition has been. It's a solidly average game whose few original ideas are compromised by screwy controls, some pacing problems, and a punishing save-game system.

We hebben hier doorgaans te maken met een degelijke game maar zoals velen voor mij zich al hebben afgevraagd, "Wat is nu de beste Vietnamshooter van deze tijd?". Die vraag kan je echter alleen maar aan je zelf stellen aangezien smaken niet altijd hetzelfde zijn. Deze game zijn sterkste kant is de co-op multiplayer mode en de niet-ondersteuning van Live zal je keuze misschien ook op een andere Vietnamgame laten vallen. De strijd is in mijn ogen onbeslist, dus zullen jullie het zelf maar moeten uitzoeken.

It's enough to give you a thousand yard stare when you realise how many Vietnam War-based games we've got to lock and load this month. This being the second of four, it follows just a few months after the release of two PC-only Vietnam efforts, and also in the same week as having had a hands-on with two games based on that other games industry obsession - World War II. You honestly couldn't make it up. And as the war-hungry accidental Nam specialist, lover of late '60s rock, and decorated veteran of the two previous Conflict campaigns, your reviewer has been thrust into active service again, despite clear signs of post traumatic stress disorder, numerous shrapnel wounds, and the tendency to play air guitar at inappropriate moments. Blame Hendrix.

Déception, c’est le seul mot qui me vienne à l’esprit pour qualifier ce soft dont pourtant les deux premiers opus laissaient espérer le meilleur pour la suite. Le passage du Golfe au Vietnam n’a pas forcement été une réussite pour Pivotal Games. De nombreux points négatifs face à trop peu d’éléments positifs empêchent Conflict Vietnam d’être qualifier comme un bon soft, dommage…

Conflict: Vietnam offers Xbox users multiplayer co-op support for up to four players via split screen, with each player controlling a portion of the four man squad. There are no other multiplayer options in the game besides co-op play, and by splitting up the screen the already problematic aiming issues get even worse. As a whole, Conflict: Vietnam is not a terrible shooter, but it's also not a very good one.

So how much should we give? I wouldn’t suggest any more than $15. If you have three friends to go on a tour of duty with and a large TV, then perhaps you’ll get your money’s worth. Otherwise, give it a rental, wait for the bargain bin if you have to or just stay away like it was a VC punji trap

Much like the protracted and difficult war on which this game is based, Conflict: Vietnam is an altogether ugly and unsatisfying experience. Those familiar with the previous Conflict games might enjoy the funky squad-based gameplay, but gamers who prefer dealing death to delegating responsibilities will find the infuriating control scheme to be a nearly insurmountable shortcoming.

If you happened to write a folk-rock song that helped define the tumultuous 60s, lucky you. You're sitting on a pot of gold! With the recent boom of Vietnam War-based video games, these tunes are just what a developers need to infuse some Sixties soul.
