Vietcong is one the most underrated and overlooked FPSs ever released. Yes its release in 2003 saw some significant issues but these were quickly patched. This class based game gives us an awesome singleplayer experience and a variety of multiplay game modes including co-op. Wide-screen is supported and with todays systems you can play the game in it's full glory.

Two expansion packs were released. Fist Alpha and Red Dawn.
The add-on offers a single player campaign, new maps and new multiplayer game types. As far as the new weapons are concerned, we can mention the M-14 gun, Claymore mines or the Russian machine gun named Degtarev DPL-2.
Vietcong: Purple Haze
The second official add-on for Vietcong, which was released on the Internet for free and on several gaming magazines throughout Europe. Containing one new single player mission, Vietcong Red Dawn features an all-new "cooperative (COOP)" experience in the multiplayer mode of the game, in which the player takes the role of a Vietcong unit, fighting through completely new multiplayer maps. This add-on was developed in the spare time of our employees, and was published in March 2005.

• Vietcong must be patched to v1.60 before installing Red Dawn
(Fist Apha doesn't matter)
notifications when you try to load v1.01 of the game are false-positives
-patching the game fixes this issue
The Multiplay modes are quite diverse. The usual Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch and Last Man Standing modes are there, there are a couple of varieties of Capture the Flag, an objective style gametype called Assault Team Game where both teams have different objectives and Co-op where it's a squad of humans on a mission verses the game!
I've set up three basic servers:
• Vietcong Fist Alpha
• Vietcong Red Dawn
Initially I want to look at the co-op mode then progress from there.
Anyone here interested in checking out this game?
