Vietcong takes players into the lush rainforest battlegrounds of Vietnam and puts them in charge of an elite six-person US Special Forces squad. Players control the squad leader and are responsible for assessing each mission and issuing orders based on each squad member's capabilities. Available vehicles include the CH47 Chinook twin-engine helicopter, the supersonic F-5 Tiger fighter plane, the Russian off-road GAZ 69 (Gorki'y Automobil Zavod), and the famous UHD1 "Huey" helicopter. Over 20 historical weapons are available during the 20 missions — players will infiltrate dangerous enemy tunnels and other hostile areas utilizing riverboats, jeeps, and trucks. Users can call in air strikes, request evacuation, receive detailed intelligence, and experience the sounds of ricocheting bullets and explosions. Multiplayer options allow head-to-head confrontations between squads of Vietcong and US Special Forces.
In an effort to develop a realistic environment, the developers of Vietcong spent several days in Vietnam near the Cambodian border photographing the dense jungle. Considerable time was also spent studying relevant documentaries, feature films, and other historical sources. ~ Mark Hoogland, All Game Guide
