 Vietnam Games?

What the hell?

Why are there no -good- Vietnam video games being made? We've all killed a metric shit-ton of Nazis, Japanese, and middle eastern terrorists!

What do I have to do to kill some Charlie? Battlefield Bad Company 2: Vietnam doesn't count as it is only multiplayer.
Am I wrong here? Am I the only one that wants to have this game type?

Sorry, just a rant...

I think Battlefield Vietnam had a singleplayer you-vs-bots mode. Old game, though.

Yea... I played the shit out of that game for years.

Was hoping that maybe someone had a game in the works. But it appears that 'modern' style warfare is the -shit- right now.

Oh well.

Vietnam is no fun to make as a game.
Coding for all the jungle environments is shit, pure hateful shit.
That is why crytek is one of the few companies that does and can pull off a game set in a jungle.

Oh wait.

Call of Duty Black Ops was Vietnam-esque.

EOD mod for Battlefield 2 and 1942. Don't know about the status of 1942 but the bf2 mod is somewhat lacking in playerbase but there are some good coop and singleplayer gameplay. And i think the project reality mod for battlefield 2 is coming out with a vietnam conversion sometime in the future.

a little off topic, but if you're into battlefield strategy, the Campaign Series (turn-based, platoon based strategy series) is about to release a new version of the game focused on Vietnam.

There is an ArmA 2 mod being made that adds the Vietnam setting.

Edit: I guess it is already released:

Of course, PC only.

There is also an RO2 mod being made set in Vietnam called In Country. Though considering how RO2 was a flop I doubt it will see the light of day.

BFBC2 Vietnam is okay, I just bought it for $2.50. It does feel poorly done compared to BFBC2 itself though.

When I go home from college, I'm going to try the mod for Battlefield 2.
Never could get the mod to work with Steam and Arma 2.
