A lot of people don't like this game, and I can see why IF they come at this game with the same expectations from other "Men of War" games or war strategy games in general.

However, this game is a lot more lethal, a lot more realistic, and a lot of just bad luck on your side.

There is a reason the US pulled out of Vietnam.
It was a war against a people who didn't want us there, didn't care how many we killed, and had the backing of China and Russia.

The only way to win a war like that is to absolutely destroy the opposing forces, and since our military had it's hands tied by 4 different presidents, a congress that wouldn't let us bomb targets AND the hippie movement that was throwing feces at returning soldiers/calling them baby killers, even the soldiers on the ground were conflicted about what they were doing there.

This game models the sudden death of stepping on an unseen trap, or a sniper putting a round into your commander's head with thick foliage around so you have no idea where the shot came from.

This isn't a strategy came where you throw a bunch of men and equipment at an area of the map and hope to wipe them out. This is a strategy game of taking your time, hiding, sneaking and sniping.
This is also a game about death. You are going to lose men.

If you can go into this game with the idea that the enemy knows the land better, has the populace on their side, and doesn't care how many of their people die, then you might enjoy it.

Vietnam was not fun or exciting.
It was long, hot, grueling, full of death and disappointment, therefor it's going to replicate that in any game that takes the subject matter seriously.

Yes, this game has it's technical problems, what game doesn't?
But I feel it set out what it intended to do, and that was make you feel like you are a man of war, in the Vietnam war.

Haha, well you definitely have me beat on PS4 games. I only have Bloodborne and TLOU. Man, I'm just hoping all that GTAV shark card money won't go up to their heads or we're gonna have a disappointing RDR sequel :feeling:

That's a race you'll probably win. I have so many backlogged games, I will probably only buy 2 or 3 games this year. (Red Dead Redemption II is the only one for sure, The Last of Us 2 as well, which are both PS4 only.. so..?)
