A fiery test of awareness, speed and accuracy which upholds the series' devotion to teamwork and authenticity, but doesn't nail the asymmetry of modern era combat.

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam hits a sweet spot between realism, fun, and required teamwork that few games do.

It's not the most polished shooter but it does shine in all the right places, and it builds on the huge potential of Red Orchestra, which I loved. There are very few games that can match the feeling you get when you watch an artillery strike destroy a treeline and push up with your squad mates under the cover of smoke and deafening explosions. If you're after a slower-paced shooter with tactical combat and tense moments, then it's time to enlist.

Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is a unique and brutally realistic multiplayer shooter meant to showcase the ugliness and unpredictability of a notorious war. Although it may cause monitor-smashing rage quitting at times and won't win any awards for eye candy, there's nothing else out there that provides a more nuanced, visceral, and intense jungle or urban fighting experience. At only $25, it's tough to turn it down. And hey, who doesn't enjoy some Creedence Clearwater Revival?

7 / 10.0
I have been playing this game for a couple months now and find it entertaining and challenging. What stands out is the team play and realism. As in real war, winning teams coordinate their attacks and communicate effectively. No one person is going to dominate in this game. Group tactics are everything. And you WILL die. A lot. Camping is relatively unheard of. What I don't
