Out of all the Vietnam games ever made, this has to be the most complex of all. With detailed maps and a massive number of tactical options, and the option to become two of America's presidents (not at the same time, mind), this is a must for all lovers of military strategy - even if it is a trifle expensive.
Play Time (Apr, 1991)
Wenn Sie die Ergebnisse gesehen haben, die das Spiel auf PC/Amiga erzielt hat, wissen Sie schon im voraus, was ich Ihnen zu sagen habe. Attraktive Grafik, elegante Tricktechnik und eine sehr treffende Simulation der wirtschaftlichen und ökonomischen Aspekte des Vietnamkrieges. Die Amerikaner verlieren auch in diesem Fall.
A nice touch is the appearance of variety cleverly worked into the newspaper reports: all are written in a similar style, but the trite phrases are slightly changed. This is true of the game as a whole: it looks quite simple, but there are subtleties there which don't become apparent until you're well into a campaign. 'Nam is a challenge that anyone with an interest in strategy or the manipulation of history should take up.
ST Format (Jun, 1991)
As an educational experience, and an eye-opener to the demands of being a Head of State, 'Nam is superb. Few wargames come close to providing this level of insight. Historians are going to love it, militarists will attempt new strategies to alter the outcome, and even confirmed pacifists will understand why Vietnam was such a different and deadly war to be responsible for. Gripping stuff - but prepare to be beaten black and blue many times, by both the enemy and your own side.
'Nam is a well thought-out simulation which none-the-less is rather dull to play; a bit like the war itself, it's game of half-hearted attacks, strategic withdrawals and inconclusive battles. The graphics are decent but not too imaginative, and the icons for separate units could be clearer; apart from the intro music, sound is minimal. If you are particularly interested in the Vietnam campaign, either from a political or military standpoint, this is worthy simulation; if you like your war a bit more exciting, perhaps you should look elsewhere.
Power Play (Jun, 1991)
Die schlechte Wertung gibt‘s allerdings nicht für die moralische Fragwürdigkeit des Programms. sondern für die Tatsache, daß Nam in etwa so aufregend ist wie das studieren eines Telefonbuches. Als Präsident klickt man einmal rechts, einmal links, bewilligt hier ein Milliönchen und dort ein paar neue Truppen und betet. daß einen die Bevölkerung immer noch mag - Hilfe! Von dem “lmperium“-Programmierer hätte ich durchaus etwas mehr erwartet. Zwar sieht Nam dank der digitalisierten Karten und Bildchen teilweise recht beeindruckend aus, aber das täuscht nicht über den Mangel an spielerischer Abwechslung hinweg.
