About This Game

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. The US campaign focuses on a team of elite special ops soldiers, and each one of them has a personality.
The unit includes Sergeant John Merrill, machine-gunner 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. The North Vietnam campaign tells the story of two Soviet military consultants and two soldiers of the North Vietnam Army who are the only survivors of an ambush prepared by the US troops. The task of getting back to the North Vietnam territory is a difficult one – they have no means of radio communication, no wheeled vehicles, and it’s too far to make it there on foot. On their way these survivors get involved in a chain of bloodbath engagements and find themselves in the dead center of the well-known Tet offensive.
Missions range from special operations (rescuing a shot-down pilot, escorting a reporter, etc.) to full scale battles.

Key Features

  • There are two sides in every story, so two new story-driven campaigns attempt to show the war from both sides.
  • Breathtaking missions including an ambush on the Ho Chi Minh trail, a game of cat and mouse in the Mekong Delta, raids into Cambodia and Laos, bridge defense during the Tet offensive and more.
  • New weapons and units: M-16, T-54, M-113, Patton III, M-60, AK-47, M-14, RPG-2, M-72 LAW, RPK and many more.
  • Multiplayer mode – co-op for up to 4 players.

Men of War is affected by the GameSpy shutdown on the 31st of May. You can continue to play the game through LAN, DirectIP and GameRanger.

-----------This is my review account, because the low playtime.
Graphics:
+ good effects
+ good lighting
- weak animation
- polygon poor vegetation
- muddy textures

Atmosphere:
+ gaudy battles
+ physics effects
- act is secondary
- cutscenes do not produce mood

Sound:
+ good weapons and vehicle sounds
+ catchy background music
- but the constantly repeated
- poor english speakers

Balance:
+ adjustable difficulty levels
+ time can be slow down
- often trial and error
- at times overpowering sniper

Mission Design:
+ constantly new targets
+ very varied

AI:
+ throwing grenades
+ investigated sent cover
+ heals itself
- runs partially blind around corners
- places miserable pathfinding

Units:
+ wide variety
+ all makes sense to use
+ original models

Campaign:
+ contiguous missions
+ all missions in co-op playable

Game Size:
+ extended missions
+ two campaigns
+ many different weapons and vehicles
- little replay value

Multiplayer: good
+ multiplayer playtime around 20 hours
+ the demanding tactical missions make in co-op campaign again just as much fun.

Game offers a fairly unused scenario, the usual hard fights and lots of tactical options. More than its predecessors, you can decide how you want to attack, because the confusing territory many ways to win offers, you, and other times overlooked something.
Ambushes, booby traps and hidden fighters are commonplace here. So it is inevitable that the unit is wiped out and you have to reload, which requires a lot of trial and error. The game offers enough military atmosphere when about helicopter lay the wood to ashes, and to hear the music of the 60s. Unfortunately, the campaign is over very quickly, because there are few applications. But after that attracts the cooperative multiplayer mode. I can put the game each to the heart, the demanding games like (and dominated).

Score: 73 / 100

MOW Vietnam is a good, stable solid game. The mechanics of play are solid enough and the UI is basically same as the other in the series. What makes this game interesting, is playing in the Vietnam War era. Not many games touch on this time and more should. So, at least for now, its a unique game that does a better than fair job in giving you the feeling of fightiing in that era. Have fun!

Extremely good, but to be honest, the singleplayer is HARD. Save your game every 2 minutes, otherwise you'll get spotted and die.

Must admit really enjoying this game, it's game play is different to most games, it's all about tactics. Yes this game is hard but it's so pleasing when you do win a round, save as many times as you can your squad is wiped just reload and try a new tactic thats the way you win, keep trying, keep trying new tactics.
This game has been a breath of fresh air it has really tested the way I approach playing this game and it will do to you too ......... just don't give up, it is a tactical stratagy game and it will frustrate you but when you win what a win, would only recomend to the die hard vietnam game fan boy or the hard core stratagy gamer or the gamer who likes stratagy games but wants a REAL challenge.
Not regretted buying it, been great fun and loving everyminute.

A really nice strategy game. Each mission you have a limited amount of people. Most of the time is 7 people vs 150 people. Each of your guys are good with certain weapons. This game you must take your time on trying to beat. The missions can take roughly and hour to beat. Graphics are pretty good, gameplay amazing. 1c company has amazed me again with another amazing game!

it's almost all stealth missions running around the jungle with almost always 5 dudes taking on thousands of NVA and viet cong the difficaulty is insaine saving and reloading maticuliously was common for me mission variaty consit of almost impossible base infultraiton, blowing up heavily gaurded supplies and eqipment as if the stealth missions in the original men of war and assault squad pissed you off then stay away from this game that's all it pretty much is

Like the United States Army, I came back from the jungles of Vietnam with a bloody nose. This game is for Men of War fans who want more emphasis on small squad tactics and less huge battles. I personally love the jungle canopy as it makes things more challenging by simulating how hard it is to see and maneuver in a jungle environment. Overall its a very good game.

Okay, I'll start by saying that all these negative comments you see all have valid points. This game is meh/10.
If you can get it for less than 5 or 7$... Still meh. Probably wouldn't recommend.

Final Verdict:

5-ish/10. Go get Assualt Squad 2.

A poor contribution to an otherwise lustering and excellent series. The missions are tedious and frustrating, their is a supreme lack of voice acting or set-up. Game feels thrown together. Be prepared to restart often, die meaninglessly and wonder why.

If you like to cry because the game you are playing is so difficult, get this.

I bought this because I've been wanting to play vietnam games for a long while, but it's ridiculously hard (I like RTSs but I'm not good at them). Graphics are pretty good, campaign is APPARENTLY super short, but I keep rage-uninstalling my OS after the first few levels. Not recommended for baddies like me, or solo play. However, I DO recommend for co-op with someone who is not god awful.

6/10
