It's 8.5GB of pure scheiße! LOD is horrible in this game. I must keep it set to 0 in order to have smooth motion on my Titan X. My thumbs up for this game is sarcasm straight up the asses of the devs. Now I must leave to go play this pile of garbage and then shoot myself. On the other hand it might be good. Nah.

Visual and technical level of the game is like from late 90s. Bad in every part. And after "big update" full of bugs which makes game unplayable. One of the worst game I played in last years.

This isn't a very serious game, and the storyline is really bad. I wish there was a mission at the end to kill my supposed family, who get more and more namby-pamby and anti-war as the game goes on.

However, the music is great. All those 70's songs, even though they are constantly repeated, get you right into the time period.

On the other hand, there's all these really crappy Huey door gunner sequences that make me want to scream. AAAAHHH! They detract massively from the Cobra sequences. With a Cobra, all you do is just fire Hydra rockets and pulverise everything. Its great fun

The jet fighter sequences are a bit lame. The MIG's are OP as it gets, and the missiles DO NOT WORK.

Dieses Spiel hat mich zwar nur 4€ gekostet doch hat es mir einige zumindest teilweise witzige Stunden Spielspaß eingebracht. Ich ließ mich nicht von den Bewertungen hier entmutigen und wollte es einam selbst ausprobieren. Zunächst würde ich hier die Luftkämpfe etwas näher erläutern, die wenn man es einmal verstanden hat einfach, ja fast schon zu einfach sind und teilweise einfach nur lästig sind. Da das Spiel aber offensichtlich auf jegliche Form des Realismus pfeift soll das nicht so ins Gewicht fallen. Als nächstes widme ich mich den Bodenangriffsmissionen die wieder einmal den Unsinn dieses Spiels vor Augen führen ,so kann eine voll beladene F4-Phantom nahezu auf der Stelle wenden und verliert hierbei weder Höhe noch Geschwindigkeit. Auch die Helikopter Missionen sind nicht wirklich gut so habe ich mich wiedereinmal in das Cockpit der AH-1 geschwungen und holzte auf Vietcong was das Teil hergab aber schwupps! Mission gescheitert! Nicht auf Zivilisten schießen! (Achtung Ironie) Mein Komentar im Teamspek war nur: Was? aber ich bin doch die USA?! Das machen wir doch immer so! Was gab es für ein gelächter im Teamspeak Channel. Solche Momente machen das Spiel schon fast zu einer Lachnummer aber dazu später mehr. So nun noch zuletzt zum Algemeinen Missionsdesign. Die Missionen sind überwegend recht abwechlungsreich gestaltet ,außer in einer Mission die sich Operation Rolling Thunder 2 nennt. Dort greift man 5! mal mit einer B52 Industrie und anderes an und wird hierbei 3! mal von Nord Vietnamesischen Jets angegriffen. DIes ist nicht nur ermüdend sondern auch nervig. So nun genug ich komme nun zum Fazit. Allgemein ist dieses Spiel recht gut gemacht es ist so wie einige meiner Vorredner schon geschrieben hat; Gut gedacht, schlecht gamacht. Ich unterschreibe dies voll und ganz. Zu guter letzt noch einige der Unsinigkeiten die Spiel zu einer Lachnummer werden lassen: Der größte Fehler hier sind dIe ZSU Flaks die nahezu überall gestanden haben, nicht einmal auf eines meiner Flugzeuge geschossen heben sondern anscheinend nur explosive Deko waren. (Mal abgesehn von den Amerikansichen Panzern die wie Shermans aussahen aber scheinabar Pattons sein sollten)

Abschließendes urteil:
Ich rate jedem ab dieses Spiel für den Preis hier auf Steam zu kaufen, es ist das Geld schlichtweg nich wert.Wartet auf den Sale oder geht zu Saturn oder anderen konsorten und kauft es dort für maximal 5€ , wenn ihr auch so wahnsinig seit wie ich. Den die ist es für ungefähr 6-7 Arkadigen Stunden Spel(spaß) doch wert.

I got this game in a bundle a few years ago, while I can't remember the exact price it was incredibly cheap. Considering how little I paid for the game its a nice little time sink, if I had bought the game at full-price however I would have been majorly dissappointed. If you find this game on sale I'd reccomend you to pick it up, as it stands though: Avoid.

Es ist ein Fall von ''Gut gedacht, schlecht gamacht''. Das Spiel ist ein Teil der ''Air Conflits'' Reihe, also hatte ich dementsprechend eine realtiv hohe Erwahrtung wurde aber für den Anfang enttäuscht. Nun fragt ihr euch sicher ''Aber Onkel Thurny, wenn du enttäuscht worden bist, wieso ist dann das Review positiv?'' Ich hatte ursprünglich vor ein eher negatives Review zu verfassen, wurde dann aber von den guten Seiten und den akribischen Bemühungen des Entwicklers umgestimmt, dieser orientiert sich nämlich an den Reviews und verbessert das Spiel dementsprechend, das hat mit sehr imponiert. Nun ist auch einiges geändert worden, zum Beispiel wurden die Maps vergrößert und zahlreiche Bugfixes betrieben. Ich für meinen Teil habe viele Stunden spaß mit diesem Spiel verbracht, allerdings empfehle ich das Spiel erst bei einem Preis von etwa 10 bis 15 Euros zu kaufen.

The bad:
* Boring repetitive gameplay.
* Bad AI.
* Tiny maps.
* Awful quality of maps (ground textures are ugly, lack of objects).
* Graphics are not good (it may looks good on screenshots, but it ugly in motion) - trees and clouds are just plane sprites (reminds me of 2000th).
* Lack of achievements.
* No replay value.
* No simulator control scheme for gamepad.
* Dead and pointless multiplayer.
* Story. Your alter ego is muted. Why Thompson fight for so long? For what? There is no answer.

The good:
* Soundtrack.
* Relatively long campaign.
* About 20 authentic planes and copters.
* You can control up to 6 various aircraft at single mission and switch them freely.
* Random rescure MIA pilots from your squad are interesting for first 1-2 times.

Some additional thoughts:
This game has somekind of historical accuracy: Americans are bad - bombing civilians, spreading agent orange, napalming villages. But if you don't like to be bad, you don't like to play this game. Well, if you American - you may like such "patriotism".
It is the worst game of the Air Conflicts series.
If you want to get flight arcade game look at HAWX1-2 (better graphics, better gameplay, better replay value) or Ace Combat (fun gameplay).

I think it is very mediocre - this game is surely not my best buy.

This game could be the single reason I may never pre-purchase anything again. While this developer has put out some VERY nice work in the past Air Conflicts: Vietnam isn't one of them. There are two huge flaws that are pretty much impossible to overlook. The first one that really hits you in the face are the small maps. Imagine trying to fly a jet inside the airspace of a tennis court. Then imagine trying to fight a battle in that same cramped space. its not very practical. So you spend much of the game flying out of bounds which is no fun and I would say makes the game unplayable. Second are the graphics. They didn't look that stellar in the trailers but I will normally ignore minor graphic issues in exchange for good game play. Unfortunately the graphics are far worse than in the trailers. Jaggy beyond redemption is probably the best term to describe it and no GPU or tweaking is going to fix it. Air Conflicts: Vietnam would need a complete overhaul of its graphics and maps to be reasonably playable. Hopefully the developer will eventually roll out some patches to make this a more enjoyable game. It could happen, I guess, but right now the game isn't ready for prime time.

I can't recommend this game. Graphically it's very messy for something this recent. Controls wise it is likewise messed up, without much functionality for changing the axis of various manuevers. In the jets, C-123 etc, there isn't even an independent rudder/aileron control that I've found-so if you pull up then want to roll, it ends up sending you in some crazy direction of its own devising. (I've played it with mouse/keyboard and 360 controller; it's possible that it's better/more adjustable with a joystick but the game turned me off so much I didn't go to the trouble of plugging in my stick)

The maps are tiny (so tiny that in a jet, I went from out of bounds to out of bounds in less than 10 seconds while trying to kill a MiG) and the voice acting is corny at best.

I hoped that the helicopter mode would be better, but no. Clunky controls, no way to change rudder/attitude controls, massively sluggish yaw. No challenge in attack chopper so far-you sit back in your AH-1 and lob in rockets from way outside the range of the enemy.

This game would have been good ten or fifteen years ago. As a 2013 title, noooo way.

Definitely not worth $30; I would probably still regret this purchase if it was $10. Very disappointed.

There are good and bad things about this game but overall I like it. Most people who have posted reviews have only played about 25% of the game. What they say is not 100% true and you cannot take what they say as a good representation of the full game. I have completed the game and so I can give you a more complete review. This game, though I do love it, is not worth the [current] £22.99 price tag. If you like the look of this game, wait until it is on sale.

I will start off by saying that this is not a realistic ‘simulator’. I normally prefer realistic games but I find this one really fun. Plus there is not much choice for games set in this era, so we cannot be picky. It is however, very authentic while not being entirely realistic and I think this is one of its greatest strengths. In addition to all the good and bad points I will make about this game, I would like to mention a few interesting things which may be overlooked. I have posted them separately here as I feel they are especially noteworthy:
As a nod to their Second World War games you can find the wrecks of an F4U Corsair and an A6M Zero. If you collect them and complete the mission they will then be added to your inventory and you can fly them in custom battles.
Air to air missiles were still unreliable in Vietnam. To illustrate this the game gives you the option to change between five different accuracy settings. You can chose to make it realistic or just play it easy with 100% accuracy.
Every plane and helo has its own realistic cockpit which is well modelled. You can also look around them using the directional view controls.
All missions require you to use more than one aircraft. You could be ferrying troops around in a Huey, then switch to an AH-1 Cobra and lay waste to the NVA at the LZ. Then switch back to the Huey and land your troops.

The following points will be the main positive aspects of the game and specifically what I like about from my stand point (liking more realistic games):
Damage models of aircraft are authentic with the exception of the helos which are like flying tanks. Though if they were not it would make the missions impossible. For example the F-100 is well represented compared to the F-105 which is capable of sustaining a lot more damage. The visual model also reflects damage taken.
Though the flight models are arcady there is an hair of realism here also, with the handling and performance of aircraft being authentically depicted.
Weaponry the aircraft carry is true to the era and is portrayed well in game. The armament of aircraft is true to their real life counterparts, like the four Colt Mk 12 cannons present on the F-8 Crusader. There are also many types of ordnance in game including; unguided and guided bombs, rockets, Agent Orange and Napalm. Armaments and ordnance also all have realistic ammo counts. Though the lack of an AIM-7 Sparrow leaves you just the AIM-9 Sidewinders and your gun(s) for aerial combat.
There are a lot of ground units and planes which are all very well modelled in game. You will most likely get acquainted with these fairly quickly. Just like the real war in Vietnam, this game heavily features ground attack and support missions. Sometimes you will go missions without seeing a MiG of any kind. I feel that this realistically represents the air war in Vietnam but it may be a thing to keep in mind, if you just want to kill planes. Though there is an instant action game mode where you can just fight AI.
The missions are varied and the terrain looks good. The campaign is about 8-9hrs long and takes you from the very start of the war, right to the end. This sees you participate in a wide array of famous events of the war including the Tet Offensive and Hamburger Hill. Missions are plentiful in number and type here and show a side to the Vietnam War which is not often seen.
To address some of the common complaints about this game; the controls are a little strange but after a little while you get used to them. It is perfectly playable with mouse and keyboard, though controller support is also available. The map areas are small only in some missions, keep playing and you will see that is far from the norm. In a lot of missions I never saw the edges of the map.

This does not mean the game is without flaws though. There are also a lot of strange things the devs did which could be considered as flews that I will address here also:
The AI is not that great. They only serve to be a threat to you when they are either; in great numbers or attacking aircraft you have to protect. Though this is not a problem, as I have mentioned killing MiGs is not the main portion of this game. In the custom battles against them you can ramp up their number to make it more challenging but even then…it is still not that great.
The missions sometimes start you facing the opposite way to the direction you are meant to be heading.
They obviously used a lot of assets from their previous Second World War titles and this ends up with some odd experiences. There are a few different USN ships in game but apart from the USS Enterprise they are all Second World War destroyers and submarines. The US also use Sherman tanks but the devs took the time to make T-55s, PT-76s and ZSUs for the NVA. Even then, for some reason the NVA sometimes use Second World War Japanese tanks!
There is a part in the game where an NVA soldier is talking but he is clearly speaking Japanese and not Vietnamese.
The description for the F4U Corsair on the carrier is actually for a F4F Wildcat.
When in the gunner view in helos you can throw M67s to kill tanks with a single hit (though your MG will kill them eventually too). Also you use an M2 50.cal and not the iconic M60 so synonymous with the Vietnam War and the UH-1 Huey.
When you pass other planes and helos at close range it sounds like you are passing a prop plane. Not a jet or helo.
The voice acting and overall plot is pretty bad. Though what they were going for is a true story and highlights many aspects of the US populous feelings toward the Vietnam War. It was ultimately executed poorly and could have been much better.
You play the role of a USN pilot but like the story, it is more of a reason to put you in the war. In reality you fly a multitude of USN and USAF aircraft. This means aircraft like F-100s and F-105s are seen on the deck of the USS Enterprise in the menu screens.
You do not get to pick your aircraft for the missions, not even when you replay them. This is not a terrible thing though as you are given the planes you need, with the payloads you need to do the missions. Though the timing is strange when the game changes your an aircraft sometimes. For example; one mission starts off bombing in an F-4 Phantom, some MiGs roll in and now you are flying A-4 Skyhawks… The bad AI makes this playable but it just struck me as very strange.
Multiplayer does not work unless you are in the beta version. This Beta also adds features not in the standard version.
The cut scene graphics are worse than the in-game ones (not saying those are bad) and they often look out of focus or blurry.
With all of these problems, I just found it hilarious that there is a wide array of sea life in the Gulf of Tonkin which is only seen in one mission. Whales, dolphins…it just makes me think ‘why did they not model an M48 Patton instead?’

I hope this review helped you and please take into consideration everything I have said before you decide to make the purchase.

Story line is not good, could of been overlooked if Flight physics were more realistic. I would love to see more Vietnam war games because I am a Huey Fan but this one is just no good, If I could get a refund and return I would...

Air Conflicts: Vietnam is an arcade flying game published by bitComposer Games. It is the next installment in the Air Conflict series.

Air Conflict: Vietnam has good potential, but it's not great, I don't even think this one is good. I think compared with Air Conflict: Secret Wars, this... Air Conflict: Vietnam is the worst. The gameplay is kinda familiar with the previous game, which is the reason why this game is bad. You can't threat jet fighter the same as those world war II planes! I can't even tell if my missiles are locking on their target or not! I miss my missile fire 90% of the time! There is also this new helicopter mode, which is not really fun to play. The control is very bad, like... uncontrollable! There is also this crop duster thing mission where you spray what... a fertilizer? Okay it's actually poison, a biological warfare, but still, spraying style mission?

Air Conflict: Vietnam graphics is... well they're kinda great, looks good a bit. Maybe it's the only good thing about this game. Performances? I feel it's not very smooth. I played this in one hour, doing some mission and then I can't. I just don't want to play it anymore.

Air Conflict: Pacific Carriers was great. It was very fun and very epic. This sequel is very disappointing. Maybe they should stick with the world war II era. No, I don't like this. I don't recommend this.

Rating 2/10

This is an incredibly awful, horrible, terrible, no good, very bad game. I am mad as hell that I spent thirty bucks on this grognard of a game and can't get a refund. Don't be like me -- I hope you read the reviews first before buying.

Worst arcade flight sim I ever play!!! Absolutely horrible. Outdated graphics even with max setting, poor voice acting, control schemas and gameplay mechanism. Controls are so bad that you can hardly play the game right, especially on helicopter missions. DON"T WASTE YOU MONEY ON THIS!!!

Pro: Nice graphics

Cons: very small playing areas. stupid controls (this is NOT a flight simulator). aircraft present in campaigns that did not exist in RL .And my favorite: The Vietnamese are SPEAKING JAPANESE! Aparently, the makers didn't think we might know the difference.

what a waste of money..

Air Conflicts: Vietnam is disappointing to me seeing as I really liked the previous Air Conflicts games. The previous games were all about fast arcade-style air-to-air and air-to-ground combat in large open arenas, and Vietnam basically gets all of those points wrong. The maps are very small and often obscured by low fog, so you're constantly going past the map's walls. The controls are fiddly and strange, nothing at all like the fluidity of Air Conflicts: Pacific Carriers (which I think is the high point of the franchise).

By far the worst thing about the game is that it interrupts gameplay to deliver cutscenes after the completion of each goal, and these interruptions are frequent. Your goal might be to take out three AA emplacements — which you'll get done within 1-3 minutes since the maps are so small — and then you'll sit through a 20 or 30 second cutscene with hammy voice acting. This will happen about five times per mission.

Give this a miss and try out Pacific Carriers instead. Secret Wars is okay too. I regret buying this game.

I was hopeful when I purchased this game. I am a fan of (modern-era) flight sims and I've sunk plenty of time into playing and replaying the Ace Combat games on consoles.

Unfortunately, I came away very disappointed by this game. It's simply... not fun.

While some games don't look very pretty in screenshots, but look amazing in-game, Air Conflicts unfortunately suffers the opposite: its screenshots do tend to look very pretty. But in the game, they don't feel as nice as the screenshots make them out to be.

There are also bugs aplenty and I've gotten completely stuck with my objectives before, requiring me to restart the entire mission again (after which I just stopped playing).

The maps are far too small to feel like you are an air superiority fighter. Go near top speed, and you'll have to turn right around again because you've flown past the map's boundaries.

Ground target missions for anything except helicopters are absolutely rubbish. Take note, game developers, you do not want your players to feel ♥♥♥♥♥♥ off because clunky controls make accomplishing tasks harder.

The story and voice acting are a joke, although the attempt is noticeable. (Paradox, I know.)

In conclusion, there are far better ways to spend your time. Don't waste it by playing this. Also, its price as it is now is absolutely ridiculous. I got it in a bundle with several other games for less than $5. Even so, it's still not worth playing.

Review based on the current beta build at the time of this review.

A game that could have been better, the graphics aren't bad and the era is one not often seen in flight games. I had written an initial "not recommended" review but retracted it when they released a beta patch adding a new flight model and some other changes in order to give it a 2nd chance. However it must be said that there is still more wrong than right with this game.

JET FLIGHT: You have two choices of which are flying like a car, or flying with a buggy "simulation" mode in which aircraft controls don't function properly. For some examples: applying right rudder has 0 yaw effect and will roll your plane over toward the left, or how banking can have little or no effect on turning.

HELO FLIGHT: Large improvement over pre-beta. Helicopter flight actually felt decent and the bindings were an improvement from before. The main bother here is the dodge mechanic which lets the helo suddenly jerk left or right. It doesn't look so bad in cockpit view but out of cockpit it looks ridiculous.

WEAPONS: Very auto-aim based, get in the general proximity with the sight and watch the bullets fly from your jet as if they were coming from a turret in the nose. Missiles can be adjusted to varying degrees of accuracy, generally not an issue. Bomb view is limited to straight flight when in simulation, no rudder control due to the bug for fine adjustments. Applying rudder or banking will pull you out of bomber view. This game would strongly benefit from the option to use a mouse for the door gunner while using a flightstick for the helicopter as well.

AI: Not much to say but if you control any aircraft during mission the AI will no longer function on that aircraft for the remainder of said mission. (That aircraft will just keep flying straight.)

STORY: The story really had no draw to it, you hear the narration of some letters from the main pilot and to the main pilot as well as the general briefing for missions but they lack any emotional draw and just didn't engage me as a player. On another down note to story there is almost no radio chatter during missions to draw you into the story and it creates a very hard separation between the missions and the cuts between them. What little chatter there is is comparable to the the movie Sharknado and the cuts during missions feel just as dry and out of context as the cuts inbetween missions.

Overall the gameplay in simulation is undesireable due to the current bugs with no sign of developer feedback. Unfortunately while arcade works better I have serious issues calling games with the "flying car" model of flight a flight game in this day and age. Air Conflicts Vietnam is a game that has or had a lot of potential that just isn't coming through. Is it redeemable, I'd say yes... however it will take more than I believe they are willing to do at this stage considering they have mentioned work on an expansion. In its current state this game comes off as dry, repetitive, buggy, pretty much uninteresting, and I just can't recommend it.
