Vietcong is really a great game. Gib & I used to play online quite a bit when the demo first came out. Not sure why it never really caught on though.

I have to recommend the Red Orchestra mod for Unreal Tournament 2004 again. It is a World War 2 mod and you use ironsights to aim and it is quite good.

I think its because its not realistic enough for the sim fans to get into it but its not unrealistic enough Unreal\Quake people to jump right in.

Plus, its a downright HARD game. Totaly different play style than most games, because the weapons are very accurate and powerful, so rather than running and bunny hopping with a rocket launcher, you have to rely more on being hidden, finding alternate routes and watching your surroundings to stay alive.

This makes me want to go play it again...

BTW, the game runs amazing on my 6800 GT. I run at extremely high resolutions with high AA\AF and its smooth as butter
