20Conflict: Vietnam manages to recreate the chaos of Vietnam almost too well. It’s an exhausting game, with very little let up. It’s a squad-based game, letting you take control of—or issue orders to—any of your buddies. Your team consists of a medic, two heavily armed types, and a sniper. As you sneak your way through the jungles, there’s a definite feeling of dread, that something really bad is about to happen at any time. At times you reach the level of paranoia reminiscent to navigating the trap-filled jungles of another tactical shooter – Vietcong.

There are a lot of interesting elements in Conflict: Vietnam. There’s some role-playing, as between missions, you can “spend” experience earned to boost skills with various types of weapons. Outside of speeding up and increasing the amount of healing a medic can do on a wounded soldier, it’s a little hard to see how it impacts most of the actual game, in large part because your “skill” at firing a weapon is generally related to the player’s own skill at wielding the mighty mouse of death.

The interface for issuing orders is clunky enough to make it easier to just do everything yourself, switching between your teammates to accomplish various tasks. The squad AI is slightly wonky, as they tend to cross your fire and get stuck in the environment, but it’s manageable. The battles of Conflict: Vietnam are intense, and the lush jungle terrain really fills you with a sense of dread and foreboding. Once the firing starts, you often can’t tell where it’s coming from. But the save system really sinks the game: you’re allowed two per mission. It’s hard to say why this artificial limit is imposed on the game.

Conflict: Vietnam is a decent game; it’s just ludicrously hard, and the whole “control multiple guys” angle isn’t implemented particularly well. On the other hand, it has terrific atmosphere and surprisingly good production values.

    Installed perfectly but will not launch. Un-mounting the CD will give the prompt “Insert CD”. Adjusted compatibility while mounting the CD and still no launch.

    This is one of my favorite early Vietnam shooters together with Line of Sight Vietnam, Battlefield Vietnam and Vietcong. I totally agree with the review above. I’ve played this over several times, but never quite make it to the end, but intend to someday. I bought two copies so that my son could play with me, but he’s now at uni and moved onto more modern games such as Dark Souls III.

    I was hoping this would be released on Steam as the very first one in the series and the last were over the last several years.

    I loved the first mission where Cherry moves into the camp and when the camp is attacked by VC. It took me several attempts to actually survive that mission and every time I played it, it felt almost real.

    Brilliant game. would love to see a remake of it.

    I actually have it in my desk drawer ready to reinstall again as I do have a hankering to pl;ay it again; but I’m still working through the custom maps I have for Battlefield Vietnam and recently reinstalled the first Vietcong game. (never liked the second one)
