Vietnam 65 - An Interesting Little Game

I recently completed a short series on a new game called, Vietnam 65. The game is an interesting and simple yet surprisingly deep game that focuses on the campaign in the Ia Drang Valley in Vietnam during 1965. The game is far more abstract than one might expect of a game that claims to focus on one geographic area over a relatively short period of time. Towns are random, maps are random, and tactical battles are largely abstract. Still it's a fun little game that focuses on Counter Insurgency as the US Military envisioned it in the summer of 1965. I wouldn't say it's the most "accurate" Vietnam game I have ever played, but it feels devilishly authentic in it's approach and understanding of the war, even if some of the games premise on how to win are probably more in line with what the US Military thought was needed to win and less in touch with reality.

  5. No game development company can afford to have a "lemon" or seriously flawed game released to the public. It could cost them millions of dollars in research and development and destroy their reputation in the competitive game marketplace for a long time.
