10 first minutes of Vietcong: Purple Haze

10 first minutes of Vietcong: Purple Haze

Adaptated from an old PC game, Vietcong: Purple Haze is one of the crappiest FPS on Xbox I have ever seen. Through this terrifying video, discover a true home-made "five years late" 3D engine, trying to create a ridiculous jungle made of 2D sprites and horrible animated textures. Call it anything you want, but I think "Hell" will be perfect.

"Call you how you want, but I think "Hell" will be perfect." <- "Call it" ;)

why would you waste 53mb of your webspace if the game is really that bad?

I had to review this game. It was torture.

I agree with KnifeFace. You shouldn't waste that much webspace & bandwidth on a crap game like that.

Well when a publisher makes the effort to send me a game, the least I can do is talk about it. Of course it can be a double edged sword ;)

How can you call this one of the worst games ever? It was supposedly one of the most acclaimed games ever when it first released on PC. I know the Xbox version isn't an optimal port, but it's essentially the same game.

You'd have to ask Snoopers about it since he's the one who had the chance to test it. But as far as I can tell they graphics are sub-par and the gameplay is not at all optimized for consoles.

And Snoopers really enjoyed the game on PC too.
