Men of War: Vietnam is a new game in the critically acclaimed series. Two new, story-driven campaigns let you taste the explosive mix of the jungle, Hueys and rock-n-roll in early 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, 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.
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 to full scale battles.
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.

Some people don't like the waty Men of War: Vietnam plays, but most of them are not real wargamers but more like casual gamers who were tempted by nice visuals and the popular Vietnam theme. For a veteran wargamer the game is a good depiction of the Vietnam war and the kind of action soldiers saw there. It's very much about concealment and cover, making use of the enviroment and uses a completely new arsenal which was quite different to what WW2 soldiers used. With helicopters and assault rifles it's a completely different war than World War 2. One thing doesn't change - often even one decision can turn your mission into a whooping victory or a bitter defeat. So play with much care and enjoy!
