The original was/is great!! I don't know why it wasn't more popular :?:

I think what killed Vietcong was the slow engine and the launch of the Battlefield series. Vietcong was a game that I really enjoyed, although it made me upgrade my hardware to enjoy it. I went from a AMD 1800 to an AMD 2600 and from GeForce 4MX video to an AIT Radeon 9800 pro 128 video card to play the game at a decent frame rate. Had the game been designed on the Unreal engine, it might have taken off like a rocket.
One of the patch releases sorted the fps problem... ran great after it's release for me!
The game had everything in my opinion including!
* Great single play
* Various multi player gametype ranging from Deathmatch to Carture the Flag to ATG (Assault Team Game) where specific objective were added.
* and co-op :!:
If Vietcong 2 has this I'll be happy
...might cya online :wink:
If it has co-op, I'll be looking into it. I played the VC1 game in SP mode but tired of the tunnels. I really wanted to finish the missions but those tunnels got real boring real fast. Shame.
Played MP for a bit but with all that foliage, everything tended to be close-quarters. Not my style.
I think it didn't take off cause you couldn't jump around like a bunny. :wink:
LoL... did you use the torch?? My brother spent a month in the tunnels! He kept phoning me asking how the f**k to get out of them. I was over at his house one day and realised he wasn't using the torch He didn't know there was one to use :roll:
Hehe - yes. I used the torch. :roll: After I finished the first tunnel mission I thought "pheew. Glad that's over." and then the CO sent me on another tunnel mission straight after. Shelved it after that.
I'll watch the reviews for #2 but.
Vietcong 2 MP demo!

I was a big fan of the first one.. even though I got lost in the tunnels for days :lol: still I found my way out and finished the game.
just played the MP demo, I wont be buying it based on that pity though I had high expectations for it. I hope SP rocks
I downloaded it, Tried to play and everytime I try to connect to a server I get kicked with a msg saying that I have been kicked for cheating 8O 8O
Some info here N3uRoTiC

No wonder you got kicked for cheating N3uRoTiC. I am sure that sheep is not street legal.
Although I don't get much time away from the MMRPG's, I do have Vietcong 2.
It is a pity it doesn't have more coop maps, it is very good for coop, which is one of the reasons I bought it.
I am a bit surprised I only found the two threads on it in TOG. I would have thought it would be more popular. I would like to be able to jump in onto a TOG server etc on the occasion I play it. Do many people out there have it?
Well, that was some seriously short lived excitment for a game. Although it worked fine for me a month ago when I got it, I am now completly unable to play it online or even on a lan due to a "cd key in use" bug it seems the game has. I have no idea how come this game did not experiance this bug for the first week it was out, and yet it now seems to have effected all copies of it.
The bug was acknoledged on 7th Nov on the website, and yet still no patch. Latest message regarding it says Sorry about the delay, we shipped the patch on 30th Nov for testing. 17 days later and still no patch.
Glad I wasn't trying to play this game or waiting for the patch.
Over 6 weeks to get out a fix to a game breaking bug has to be death to a development company. I will surely think twice about buying anything else they produce.
tried the demo if the game is like that no thanks
FFS I was the same!!!!! a mate said use the torch!!! and I said, what ****ing torch???? LMFAO if I remember correctly I was walking backwards and throwing flares! lol
I didn't enjoy it that much..the tunnels were a pain in the ass for sure..back and forth with the light..back and forth.....lol
When I got to the camp to rescue the prisoners I shelved it.
Was a good game
:bigfrown: It was a good game till I finally got online with BFV and pitdog's BF2. The xbox is now collecting dust lol
yes my xboxes are in the cupboard as well
Is it multiplayer co-op?
I really want a decent multiplayer co-op game....and some decent multiplayers to play it with....I wish Sven would get off his ass and make HL2 Sven Co-op
Oh, and neurotic, to stop getting that message, just stop cheating....
IM JOKING OK JOKING!!!!!!!!!!
those tunnels suck!!!
Ill second that those tunnels sux
