Quoted from Vietcong: Purple Haze Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Vietcong: Purple Haze reviews & previews
"...we still have a lot of affection for what Vietcong's trying to achieve, but the sorry truth is the console version just doesn't deliver on the promise of the PC original. More troubling is that in the last 18 months since VC first appeared, the technical benchmark has gone up several notches, rendering much of what's on show in this fairly shoddy conversion hideously outdated."
"When you are playing Vietcong: PH you will learn to use your eyes as much as your ears. The trick of defeating the enemy is stealth and awareness because the majority of Vietnamese soldiers are ready and waiting with an ambush."
"Thoroughly retooled by a new developer, Purple Haze generally makes a mess of what used to be a good game."
"From every angle, Vietcong: Purple Haze barely cuts the mustard. It's not a great shooter, it's not terribly pretty, it's slow and has average to poor AI, the squad mechanic is meh, and so it's just very, very difficult to like. To love it, you'd have to be desperate or suicidal."
