Platoon is a mission-based tactical combat game taking place in the Vietnam Conflict. Terrain, vehicles and soldiers are all modeled and authentic, right down to the pockets on the uniforms and the types of plants and grass. The terrain affects your line of sight, and the surface and weather impose limits of the characters. The missions themselves are based on real missions undertaken during the Vietnam war. You groups contain up to 30 men, including engineers and commanders.

The game started out as war game set in Vietnam with no connection with the movie at all. During the advanced stages of development, Monte Cristo acquired the Platoon movie license from MGM. Digital Reality then threw out the original story and adapted the game to the movie's storyline.
