First of all; the game is o.k., but it's supposed to be army, but if you pay really close attention, you will see that most of the soldiers have EGA's (eagle, globe, and anchor) on their covers or steel. EGA's are for Marines...OORAH!!!
Secondly; how the hell can you have a game based on the Vietnam experience, and not have ANY Jimi Hendrix in it at all???
Where is the All Along the Watchtower, or the ultimate...MACHINE GUN???
Obviously neophites on the history of the war, not doing their homework.
Now, 20 years from now, when someone decides to make a video game based on Iraq or Afghanistan, what music will they put in it???

Don't just play the game. Study the history of the conflict. This failure of leadership at the government level, as well as overall understanding of that region of the world, is the reason why almost 60,000 did not come back, and many are still dying today from the physical and psychological fallout of that war.
That conflict caused American society to change in ways that are just now being understood; possibly in more ways than even the Second World War did.
Pay attention and study Vietnam, as it was fought and covered then. See how many simularities there are between then and now.

21st Oct 2004, 00:19
Ramones are late 70s early 80s and beyond.

yeah its CCR and it stands for Creedence Clearwater Revival. War is by Edwin Starr. I think the best song compilation ever for a Nam game is what they used for Battlefield: Vietnam

I agree, the list made in Battlefield Vietnam was really good, i wish there was more of a choice on the maps though, because i got dial up, i cant get any new maps for the game, so i play the same levels over and over, not that theres nuttin wrong with that, but it does get sorta stale after awhile...

I still think one of the most ironic things I read from a vet was the use of ¡°It¡¯s a Beautiful Morning¡±, by the Rascals, for reveille. I think that would drive me up a wall.
