    Purple Haze Mini Review Purple Haze is "simply" the compilation of Vietcong and its Fist Alpha expansion plus the requisite additional MP maps for those so inclined. What I would recommend is to play the Fist Alph... Read Full Review

    A dismal attempt at Vietnam conflict and a massive waste of time.

    STORY: The game starts out to be much of a let down as you begin and start out with your character. The story paints him out to be a facsimile of Martin Sheen's character in Apocalypse Now. That feeling is not totally de... Read Full Review

    Nice.. Very nice

    I am a big fan of the Vietcong series and this package is a welcome edition. It's pretty much just the original Vietcong and Vietcong: First Alpha in one box. The gameplay is very fun. Instead of going in guns ablazing y... Read Full Review

    It feels like Vietcong was developed by an inexperienced or uninspired team.

    This game was a gift to me once. I had to play it of course. Vietcong-Purple haze starts off promising, with a nicely done intro that shows various historical figures for example-Muhammed Ali, Elvis Presley and JFK. ... Read Full Review
