At first I thought that you were joking, but those screens do look sweet. Not sure I would play this game and my step dad faught in Vietnam and even though its a game, I think it would make me feel a bit strange playing it, dont ask my why, I just have a feeling that it would.

yeah, i'd imagine alot of people won't play it for just that reason alone. but wow, if that is their engine, they should start licensing that thing. i have a feeling by the way it looks it could be the new unreal engine.

The Graphics are quite amazing.

But gameplay means everything.. I think Battlefield 1942 is a great game..But the gameplay sucks ass..So many problems its not even funny..Makes me want to break the game..

The graphics are ok. It looks like another game using only DirectX 7, and nothing from 8. (No pixel, vertex shaders, just trying to shove in a lot of polygons with low-res looking textures)

My dad wasn't shipped to Vietnam, but he was very much involved in "other" things related to the Cold War.

Looks like John Mullins of SOF II went crazy and decided to attack a tropical resort.
