The Mediocre Zone | #2 | Platoon (2002)

A game from Digital Reality from Reunion/Hegemonia fame, made its own take on Vietnam … dunno about the curse around it … you know everything that speaks/shows/plays in Vietnam is a flop … movies flopped (except one : Rambo) … games flop ( a fine example is MADEMAN great game, but it flopped in sales 🙁 )… books also … and it does not matter if they are good, or not … they just do not sell … guess it has something to do with the American culture and those hate/love times…on one side you had the Flower Power people (hippies) and on the other the G-men war vets … and the Nixon Administration that lied and cheated … yeah, its all fault of Tricky Dick and its Watergate scandal … people just want to forget …

So, what we get is a mediocre RTS about Vietnam… that has 15 missions , each take from 4 to 6 min to complete … is this game worth your time … if your mental, then yes … its one of those RTS that you cannot heal units (or make any)… its one of those game that wanted to be a adventure/story book with people that point and shot … but became a boring RTS … hey kid look at the bright side ,it has nice music ….but, that’s all you can get from it

  • Probably also because Vietnam war is not like in WW2 where it was a bit "easier" to differentiate between Good Guys Americans vs Bad Guys Japanese and Germans.

    Vietnam War was complex, audience will not like "Good Guys American" in Vietnam War movie and thus avoid it, also we can ask why there aren't any more of those black and white Americans VS Arabs videogame or movies anymore, because of today PC attitude and in case of "hurting the sensitive Muslim feelings". Pretty sure Afghanistan and Iraq from recent history would make a good campaign, but no, there was nothing made at the moment. I mean even the planned but cancelled videogame 6 days of Fallujah seems cancelled now due to PC sensitive morons tried to ban it being released.

  • Nah man, Not all Vietnam War theme stuff sucks, it just that it is still a "sensitive issue" to this day for U.S. I know a few games and movies that are really great.

    Vietcong+Fist Alpha is a great fps game by Pterodon studio.
    Men of War Vietnam is also great rts game
    Call of Duty Black Ops series set in Vietnam is really good, don't care about those who like to jump in the "hate wagon" and call all COD game sucks. Black Ops is great series who make an effort for the Singleplayer, I like it, shut up.

    Hamburger Hill is not a bad movie.
    Platoon is great classic (and even won an Oscar).
    Full Metal Jacket is obvious everybody favourite.
    A bullet to the head is a good John Woo movie set in Vietnam+Cambodia border, not really the usual John Woo action packed movie, but still good action.
    A Better Tomorrow 3 with Chow Yun Fat is a good Vietnam Movie too.
