A third person shooter where the player takes full control of all four squad members Conflict: Vietnam does not set out to depict the course of the war; instead we witness four men struggling for survival in the hostile Vietnam jungle against a ruthless terrain and seemingly ever-present ‘invisible’ enemy.
- With 14 missions spanning a variety of environments you must lead your squad down Vietnamese rivers manning the guns on a heavily armoured river boat into local villages (with friendly and non-friendly fire) to rescue hostages through ruined temples and the claustrophobic jungle and into the ancient Vietnamese capital of Hue.
- Armed with an array of heavy artillery your squad must also use make use of transportation abandoned by the Viet-Cong or discarded by captured US troops such as tanks boats and helicopters in addition to any surplus weaponry you acquire including gun placements and two-manned mortar sites.
- Lastly and by no means least keep a watchful eye out for the Viet-Cong booby traps from grenade trip wires and water mines to the punji stake pit trap and the ‘Bouncing Betty’ anti-personnel mine.
