Gameplay is garbage but all Nam shit is crazy

"The Worst Military Shooter I Have Ever Played"
Not much to say about this load of garbage. Its a very generic military game from the outset, and in the only level I played there was no story to be experience, no characters to be introduced to, and no real gameplay to care about.
The gunplay is absolutely atrocious. Shooting barely has any responsiveness to it, and the mechanics are clunky as hell. You don't really "shoot" enemies, you shoot "around" them, but barely hit them. A cover system is sloppily introduced and not explained. Objectives amount to "move here" and "blow this tunnel up...twice in a row".
At least the graphics are okay right? Nope! The game has a greasy, ugly, muddy look to it. Textures are unenjoyable to look at, and actually managed to give me eye strain. Animations are stiff and boring. The sound design is likely the best aspect, and its still a muddled and confusing auditory mess.
I ended my time with the game after completing the first level, and found out you could hire Vietnamese hookers. This **** was outright racist and one of the dumbest and unnecessary additions to a game I think I have ever seen. It also completely solidified this title as a complete waste of time.
Um...that's my review. Normally I would analyze more of a game or say things in a more cohesive manner, but I think this review should reflect the quality of the title and why I do Not Recommend it. Rushed, unenjoyable (unless you enjoy the cringe?), and really a waste of time reading/playing. Or writing.
Final Verdict: 1/10 (Terrible)

As a young teenager, I only really played this because I could collect pictures of naked ladies, which my parents didn't know. Became irrelevant once we got an internet connection.
