Elite Warriors: Vietnam

This Press Release from Destineer/Bold Games announces a new Vietnam War-themed shooter slated for release next month:
MINNEAPOLIS, MN, December 10, 2004 -- MINNEAPOLIS, MN, Month XX, 2004 – Destineer’s Bold Games unit today announces Elite Warriors: Vietnam for PC. This intensely realistic first-person shooter is scheduled for release in January 2005 with a MSRP of $29.99.

Each mission in Elite Warriors: Vietnam was developed with the direct assistance of former Studies and Observations Group (SOG) member and best-selling author, Maj. John L. Plaster. Serving three full combat tours as a recon team leader during the Vietnam War, Maj. Plaster led small 6-8 man recon teams on covert missions along the Ho Chi Minh Trail in Laos. Maj. Plaster’s SOG recon company was the highest decorated unit of the Vietnam War with five Congressional Medal of Honor recipients- men who became legends in the Special Ops community. The same dangers and obstacles SOG had to overcome to earn a Presidential Unit Citation in 2001 are waiting for you in Elite Warriors: Vietnam.

In Elite Warriors: Vietnam, you will fight along side Green Beret commandoes as you conduct classified missions deep in Southeast Asia. By using patrol techniques still being used today in Iraq and Afghanistan you will rescue downed pilots, ambush convoys, seize enemy prisoners, and discover targets for air attacks.

Now all we need is a game where a time portal is opened between Vietnam and World War II, so we can have both in one game!


LOL! We need more ridiculous games, and that idea has Zucker and Abrahams written all over it..


Source SDK is out... wanna collaborate?

The lack of informed opinions on Vietnam both amuses and disturbs me.

The problem with a draft is forcing people to fight when they don't want to but their only option is jail. Naturally, they're not going to follow the rules. Similarly, people with some severe mental problems were allowed to fight that shouldn't have.
Napalm, BTW, was used EXTENSIVELY in WWII, especially in the Pacific theater in the exact same sort of environments as seen in Vietnam.

Of course, we have the liberal pansy-asses who see nothing but "glorification of war crimes" (as apparently only the US committed any) and then we have the conservative warhawk "they were brave men fighting for their country" morons who don't get that the US was NEVER threatened by anything that happened in Nam. It was totally a proxy war where we fought the USSR and the Vietnamese got caught in the crossfire.

Naturally the world is totally black and white, there are no shades of gray, and the only correct opinion is YOURS, even if it's based on weak or wrong info.

I think that the dead bodies of 2 million indochinese cry out against this glorification of war crimes.

Im sick of this gung ho glorifying of US marines in 'nam as 'men of valour' 'fighting for freedom' and 'elite warriors'. Theres no honour or 'l33tness' about pushing a button and dropping napalm on an entire village of peasants.
America should be ashamed of the war crimes it was guilty of in vietnam, not treating it like some kinda super heroic episode.
Normandy landings is a different ballagme entirely, those guys WERE heros. but nam?
*sigh*


I think there are 550k or so men that may find offense with your comments.

Yeah, all U.S. soldiers in Vietnam commited war crimes and didn't do their jobs/follow orders. And no war crimes were ever commited by the Allies during WWII.

I just saw that nFusion is the developer behind this. So far they've put out some "okay" budget titles (Deadly Dozen, Deadly Dozen 2, Line of Sight, etc).

Sorry but DICE didn't pave the way for WWII, Vietnam or Modern era in the genre. They were after the fact like so many others.

it's the 'Whatever Dice team does we gotta clone' genre.

First WW2, then Vietnam, next will be Modern Day stuff.

I'm just waiting for them to actually get some real ideas and do some futuristic stuff.

Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.

Now that US Airlines are flying to Vietnam again, surely this should be Elite Tourists: Vietnam and cover lost luggage rage and the pain of dodgy food

Vietnam games have worn out their welcome. They should have stopped with Vietcong, and realized they couldn't pull a Medal of Honor/CoD out of their respective pants.

I predict that this game will have at least one level set in a dense jungle setting.

sounds like it has something the other nam games dont have.

A low budget title that is only brought into the open a month before its store release can't be good at all.

But hey, it's 'intensely realistic'

Ugh. Just gotta love press releases...
