Action and shooting in VietNAM!
NAM is a well produced, not too diverse action game, set in the Vietnam of the American Vietnam war; it has enough levels to keep you playing, the built, graphically is pretty thorough, and, more than anything, it's got all the elements that you'd expect from such a simulation, at the level where you could say that it is a military first person simulator, but it's playable as if it were an action/arcade oriented shooter. The game also has a meaty multiplayer mode, consisting of 19 maps, on top of which you can play diverse games, CTF, elimination, versus, and more. The game's cool thing is also the realism of the weaponry. The developers took a good look at the arsenal that was used during the real world conflict, and, from there they tried to represent the weapons, the M16, M60, M79 and the LAW as good as they could. Sure, compared to the latest ARMA game, maybe the realism is well, a bit shoddy, but for a 98 game, when real 3D was still in it's (later!) infancy, it's definitely an aspect worth mentioning! So, if you want to visit a good retro Vietnam conflict game, this can do it. Else, download Shellshock: Nam '67, as it will give you a good level to level based tour of the late 60s Vietnam conflict and it has that Eidos mark written all over, which means ease of playing (and not a lot originality!) and an overall good shooter experience.
