'Line of Sight: Vietnam' - Screens

In 1968 U.S. Special Forces in Vietnam began assigning sniper specialists to frontline military units in support of ongoing ground operations. These skilled marksmen were relied upon to provide cover during troop movements, scout enemy positions and ambush the Viet Cong.

As the war intensified, the demand for these talented soldiers increased. For them success depended on a rifle, a target and a clear Line of Sight.

In LINE OF SIGHT: VIETNAM you are an eagle-eyed sharpshooter in the Army’s Special Forces (better known as “The Green Berets”) at the height of America’s involvement in the Vietnam War. Surrounded by steaming jungle, you’ll stealthily position yourself and eye targets through your scope. Here, the tension is so thick a simple twig snap can mean the difference between successfully completing a mission and making the ultimate sacrifice. Dense vegetation limits visibility and conceals everything from booby traps and caves to snakes and elusive enemy soldiers. This is a world where remaining unseen is key and where speed and good judgment gets you home alive.

Game Features:

  • Take out targets under the cover of a dynamic and fully detailed 3-D environment, including changing weather, booby traps, and thick vegetation
  • Use over 10 different weapons, including ones dropped by enemy forces
  • Tackle multiple missions in the infamous A Shau Valley, or create custom operations with the mission editor feature.
  • Assume the role of a sniper alone or play cooperative multiplayer games over LAN or the Internet
