Vietcong Purple Haze (PC)

Vietcong Purple Haze contains both Vietcong and it's expansion pack: Vietcong Fist Alpha.

Vietcong - Bring powerful jungle combat to life on your PC. Set during the Vietnam War, “Vietcong” is a first person shooter with tactical elements. Acting as an elite soldier, players of “Vietcong” command the A-team, part of the U.S. Special Forces, in realistically represented Vietnamese environments.

You forge ahead through the thick, oppressive heat. Your erratic heartbeat and amplified breaths are all that escape the hostile stillness.

Sweat beads down your face as an all too familiar vibration breaks your concentration. You turn to face the threat while the rookie lays down a wild burst of gunfire into the trees up ahead. The jungle explodes into a fiery deathtrap with roars from automatic weapons interrupting the incoherent shouts from your men.

Spin, aim, shoot, duck, dodge, fire. Your actions form a dance as rapid explosions create a giant fireball of destruction. And then, as quickly as the chaos sprang to life, it departs, slipping away into the darkness. A downpour ensues, quelling the raging jungle, setting things right once again. But there's no time to rest. This is a war, and you've got a job to do.

Experience the danger, fear, and unpredictability of lethal jungle warfare against a cunning enemy in VIETCONG, a first-person action shooter set during the infamous conflict in Southeast Asia! Command expertly trained members of the U.S. Special Forces on critical missions through dangerous territories! You are the leader of one of the finest fighting forces ever assembled. It's time to show the world what you're made of.

The Team - Your elite unit consists of six members of the U.S. Special Forces, expertly trained in various fields. The success of numerous covert operations rest solely on your ability to analyze the situation and utilise each soldier's specialty.

You are in direct control of the main character. As team leader, you issue orders to the other soldiers to determine the way in which your missions will proceed. The remaining five team-members assess each situation based on the fundamental rules of behavior for an elite unit. The soldiers know how to act, how to protect themselves, and how to fight. But their distinct personalities cause them to react differentlyduring stressful conditions.

Vietcong Fist Alpha: - For most GIs one tour of duty in Vietnam would be more than enough, but not for the boys of 'Fist Alpha', a crack team of US Special Forces from the military's elite 'Green Machine'. Determined to stop Charlie in his tracks, this courageous troop returns to the heart of the conflict taking you with them.

Hurling you into the thick of the battle in Vietnam's highlands, Vietcong Fist Alpha offers up seven unique single-player missions, in addition to eight new multi-player maps, all including co-op mode, expanding upon the action-packed jungle experience enjoyed in Vietcong.

Six all-new weapons, including the addition of bayonets and machetes heightening the hand-to-hand combat element of the game, and even heavier artillery filling the smoky skies with a shower of shells on both the US and NVA alike, ensure Vietcong Fist Alpha is an even more enthralling experience than before. You will also feel the wrath of the awesome B52 Bombers, F-105 Thunderchiefs and F4 Phantom Fighters as they rein terror over the skies.
