3 out of 5
Nam is a 1998 first person shooter game
that is set in the Vietnam War
and it is very similar to Duke Nukem 3D
by its gameplay and almost everything else. In fact, the Vietnam settings might be the only original thing in the game. You can freely call this game "Duke Nukem in Vietnam". This is not suprising, since this game is made by the same team that made Duke, you can think of the main character of the game, Alan "The Bear" Westmoreland
as his kid brother doing the same thing as big bro. In the game, you are a genetically engineered superhuman and to prove the experiment worked, you have to go through some of the most gruesome challenges from one level to the next, killing everything in your way, avoiding traps
and, and that is not so easy, to stay alive. The way you do it is routine if you've already played Duke Nukem. If note, this is how you do it: you have various weapon you get on the way, and you just go around and kill, kill, kill. The graphics are virtually unchanged than those from Duke 3D, only the surrounding are different since you are in another country. Sound's also almost the same, but it doesn't matter much, because this game is all about action and killing and blood
. And you'll get your fill of that, I guarantee it. If you loved Duke, you're going to love this one. If you didn't, then pass this one up. Simple as that.
