This might seem unusual, but playing Vietcong gave me the best action hero experience since Hitman 2 (Doesn't beat Max Payne of course.) By action hero I mean not just the wanton destruction, but doing it in style.

The firefights in those ancient ruins were most memorable. I ran out of primary ammo near the finale, so leaning out of corners and popping bad guys with a mere pistol simply to scrounge for more ammo became my forte. The thing was, they were doing the same moves, and there was no quicksave.

I just hope to God they get the voice acting for the main character right this time.

Yeah, I'll probably be waiting for reviews first, but I'm still optimistic; some of those missions in VC were bloody long!

Such a great game, too. I'd definitely like more of the same, so this is good news, I think.

Jeez, employ another mapper and add some more missions... 7 just doesnt cut it any more

I think when they say 7 missions, they mean 7 missions that are spread out over multiple maps. Kinda like how MoH had 6 missions spread across 24 maps.

7 single player missions? Are they kidding? Unless they're selling this expansion for a maximum of 5 bucks, no thanks.
I'd never even consider an FPS expansion without at least 20 SP missions.

They better not even consider charging full expac price for that. I personally liked Vietcong, but that amount of content wouldn't justify $20+ even if it was game of the century.
