Background

Experience the danger, fear, and unpredictability of lethal jungle warfare against a cunning enemy in Vietcong, a first-person action shooter set during the infamous conflict in Southeast Asia. Command expertly trained members of the U.S. Special Forces on critical missions through dangerous territories. Fight in over 20 dramatic missions, using more than 20 deadly weapons. Race across hazardous terrain in jeeps, trucks, and riverboats. Play as either U.S. or VC soldiers in multiplayer action.

Gameplay

The Team

Your elite unit consists of six members of the U.S. Special Forces, expertly trained in various fields. The success of numerous covert operations rest solely on your ability to analyze the situation and utilize each soldier's specialty.

You are in direct control of the main character. As team leader, you issue orders to the other soldiers to determine the way in which your missions will proceed. The remaining five team-members assess each situation based on the fundamental rules of behavior for an elite unit. The soldiers know how to act, how to protect themselves, and how to fight. But their distinct personalities cause them to react differently during stressful conditions.

Types of missions

100% Action - Defend yourself from the onslaught of enemy attacks, with the destructive power of an under-sling helicopter gun, a heavy gun set on the rear of a jeep, or from the tranquility of a boat powering up the river.

Solo - Face the enemy alone. Struggle through the claustrophobic confines of tunnel systems or just run for your life after being separated from your team. It's up to you and you alone.

Squad - Work as a team, sweeping through dense jungle or facing the dangers of exposed ruins. Use your team member's specialties and stay in touch with HQ to attach the enemy and reach the Landing Zone.

Multiplayer - Enter a killing zone as either U.S. or VC soldiers in heart-stopping multiplayer action via LAN or over the Internet.
