Rising Storm 2: Vietnam
Rough edges and thin map selection aside, Rising Storm 2 offers up an intense and immersive recreation of the Vietnam War that will thrill, terrify and occasionally infuriate anyone brave or patient enough to get past its initially steep learning curve.
Improved maps, asymmetrical warfare and a smoother multiplayer experience makes Rising Storm 2: Vietnam a noteworthy addition to the franchise.

Rising Storm 2 is next up in the Red Orchestra series, bringing the fight into Vietnam. With this I want to clarify that this is not a brand new installment in the franchise but more like a standalone expansion pack. It brings period weapons, equipment and vehicles into a Red Orchestra setting. Rising Storm 2 features 2 factions with 2 sub groups in each, the USMC, US Army, NVA, and Viet Cong forces. With the amount of factions, I did expect a few more gear options, here I found a small lack in gearing choices. I would have liked a few more weapons and choices here. The game also offers you cosmetic choices in the form of clothing options, camo, helmets, tattoos and more. This adds a nice touch and can create some awesome looking squads and teams.
1960’s music blaring – check. Helicopters – check. 64 player US versus Vietnamese matches on a variety of interesting and unique maps – CHECK.
Rising Storm 2: Vietnam is a must have for tactical shooter fans. Tripwire‘s latest release strikes a perfect balance between realism and fun, forcing players to work together thanks to its excellent squad mechanics and unforgiving gameplay. It’s definitely not a game for everyone, but those of us who enjoy working with others to achieve our objectives will keep coming back to it for years to come.
Rising Storm 2: Vietnam gets rid of WW2's single shot rifles in favor of modern automatic weapons. The gritty battles of 64 players, artillery and helicopters, where teamwork is the key, are brimming with atmosphere.
