Product Description

Edition: Special

From the Manufacturer

Men of War: Vietnam is a new game for the critically acclaimed series. The new, story-driven campaign lets you taste the explosive mix of the jungle, Hueys and rock-n-roll in 1968.

During this conflict the US troops were using not only new weapons, but new tactics as well. The war in Vietnam became the first military conflict where helicopters played a significant role, and this is one of the major features of this game.

The campaign is 10 missions and focuses on a team of elite special ops soldiers, and each one of them has a personality. The unit includes Sergeant John Merrill, machinegunner Jim Walsh, sniper Sonny Armstrong, grenade launcher operator Carl Dillan and combat engineer Bill Kirby. In some missions they can count only on themselves, while in the others they act together with regular US and South-Vietnamese troops.

Missions range from special operations (rescuing a shot-down pilot, escorting a reporter, etc.) to full scale battles.

This is a disappointing game. I can't even get started good. Previous entries into the Men of War series have all been challenging but none have been inordinately difficult. I guess if you wanted to you could call this entry into the series "groundbreaking".

Graphically it's very nice but the lush foliage makes it virtually impossible to see your men OR the booby traps that appear to be all over the jungle. These will kill your men, frequently, quickly and without warning. The game does not need to be this difficult. They need to make a patch that makes the foliage above and around your men become transparent and either remove the traps or create some way for your men to avoid them because as it is now to keep them alive and to even be able to see them you have to keep your units on the path and only a fool would keep his men on the path in Vietnam. If I wanted to play a game like that I'd have wasted my money on Call of Duty.

I personally love the MoW series and will continue playing this game but unless you are a dedicated fan of Men of War then I would not recommend it to you. Not this one anyway and even if you are I'd wait until it goes on sale again (I got the special edition on sale for ten bucks) or get's a patch that fixes this foliage and booby trap issue... which probably won't happen. It just is not worth what they asking for it now which at the time of this review is forty dollars.

Oh yeah, there IS a patch that will let you start either the American campaign or the Vietnamese campaign at the beginning. Before the patch you had to complete the Vietnamese campaign before you could play the American. You can get the patch at the 1C publishing website.

This one is lacking compared to the previous series in what you can accomplish with single player. Aside from the storyline there is none of the battle modes that were available in previous installments in MoW series.
