GameInfo: Vietnam is the third stand-alone expansion pack of Men of War and is being developed by 1C in-house as Digitalmindsoft is focused on Assault Squad. Two new, story-driven campaigns let you taste the explosive mix of the jungle, Hueys and rock-n-roll in early 1968.

Critic Score
IncGamers: Gruelling. That’s the word to best describe Men of War: Vietnam. Like the war itself, the game is a slow, often painful, slog through booby trapped jungles, sniper nests and villages of dubious loyalty.  Read Full Review 80/100
Midlife Gamer: “You know, when I agreed to this review I thought it would be a walk in the park, lazy references to Lynard Skynard, Full Metal Jacket and the occasional shouting of “You weren’t there man!”. As it turns out Men of War: Vietnam has unwittingly taught me about the horrors of war, but not the way 1C probably imagined.” Read Full Review 80/100
Wanderson75: Mark Quimoyog gives us a look at an FPS on a computer. We weren’t even sure they still made those! Read Full Review 80/100
CheatCC: Like many franchises set in World War II, Men of War is branching out into new conflicts. Its latest standalone expansion pack lets you see the Vietnam War from both sides—and forces you to confront incredibly long odds, no matter whose army you’re fighting for. This is a great entry to the Men of War series, and at $35, it’s a must-buy for longtime fans of real-time strategy. Just steer clear if you want any handholding whatsoever, or if high difficulty is offputting to you. Read Full Review 74/100
NoobFeed: Contrary to Assault Squad, the previous installment in 1C’s Men of War series, Vietnam focuses fully on the single player. With a big variety of objectives and two full-fledged campaigns, Men of War: Vietnam has enough meat on it, but it lacks some of the thrills of its predecessor. Read Full Review 73/100
VideoGameWriters: Men of War: Vietnam can be best described as a tactical real-time-strategy game, which is a stand-alone expansion to Men of War. It has all the up-close and personal action you would expect from a traditional tactically based game, with a basis around real-time combat. A common theme in this game is constantly being outnumbered, meaning you have to outplay the AI from mission one. This creates a challenging, yet satisfying combination of mechanics that offer fun for those who are willing to test their limits… and their patience. Read Full Review 70/100
IGN: If the handful of Vietnam War movies I’ve seen have taught me anything about the war, it was a bloody, brutal affair where neither side was necessarily in the right, and everything was backed by totally sweet hard rock. I imagine that simulating the humid, dense Vietnamese jungles and their effects on combat is no simple task, but it’s what Russian developer, publisher and even retailer 1C has attempted with Men of War: Vietnam.

Strategy Informer: Excerpt: “So, in terms of boiling down this review to a verdict on whether Men of War is good or not, I think I’ll go with the trusty “Yes, but” conclusion. It is good, but the Vietnam setting doesn’t fit the template as well as World War II, and I would strongly advice newcomers to play the original Men of War first, otherwise that first mission may well put you off for life. Trust me, I know. I was in ‘Nam, man.” Read Full Review 70/100
PixelScribes: “Men of War: Vietnam is a real-time tactical game set during the horrific war in 1968. Taking on the social impression of the war, the game features guerilla fighting, napalm strikes and hard rock-n-roll.” Read Full Review 70/100
Gamedot: Excerpt: “Men of War fans should stay away, while fans of the Commandos experience would be best off sticking with Pyro’s early titles.” Read Full Review 40/100
Default Prime: Default Prime writer Tom Peeters descends into the jungles of Vietnam for the latest iteration of the Men of War series. And while the game is beautiful to look at, overly complicated controls and poor AI mar the experience. Read Full Review 40/100
