Venetica

Venetica

Venetica is not an AAA title. The visuals are fun and okay, but they don't really compare to modern 2010 games. But the combat and gameplay had me well addicted to finishing it for a couple of days, so it must have done something right. It is certainly worth playing in my opinion. Not quite as good Gothic 4, which again is not as good as Dragon Age: Awakenings, but single player RPG's are few and far between. And by the way IGN gave this a 9.2.

Vietcong 2

Vietcong 2

Overall, graphics that are dated for late 2005, ho-hum level designs and unpolished gameplay make Vietcong 2 are very average game. Perhaps it's a good thing that it's so short; that way you can play through it all on a rainy Sunday.

Vietcong

Vietcong was not a long game, probably ten hours max. But maybe it just felt short because I was having so much fun with it. Everything is very realistic, even killing your enemies as you need to hit them pretty well or they'll recover and keep shooting. Great graphics for 2003 and fun gameplay means I'm looking forward to playing the official addon pack and sequel. It's a pity the creators, Pterodon & Illusion Softworks, haven't done much else in this genre. But, how will this hold up against Men Of Valor, the only other successful Vietnam-based game released a year later...
