Set during the Vietnam War, "Vietcong" is a first person shooter with tactical elements.
...You forge ahead through the thick, oppressive heat. Your erratic heartbeat and amplified breaths are all that escape the hostile stillness.
Sweat beads down your face as an all too familiar vibration breaks your concentration. You turn to face the threat while the rookie lays down a wild burst of gunfire into the trees up ahead. The jungle explodes into a fiery deathtrap with roars from automatic weapons interrupting the incoherent shouts from your men.
Spin, aim, shoot, duck, dodge, fire. Your actions form a dance as rapid explosions create a giant fireball of destruction. And then, as quickly as the chaos sprang to life, it departs, slipping away into the darkness. A downpour ensues, quelling the raging jungle, setting things right once again. But there's no time to rest. This is a war, and you've got a job to do.
