Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Whirlwind Over Vietnam (PC)

Whirlwind Over Vietnam puts the controls of the chopper in gamers' hands as they struggle to complete battle type missions, all based on real events as documented by the US military in 1965.

“While piloting over the la Drang Valley of Vietnam, gamers will experience how the helicopter pilots of the Vietnam War were truly integral to the ground war,” stated Reto Bodmer, COO for Evolved Games. “The level of detail in every aspect of this game will set Whirlwind Over Vietnam apart from other war-type games.”

Key Features Include:

  • Master Various Skills: fire support, fire coordination, enemy search and destroy
  • Autopilot mode allows changes to the view and vantage point
  • Missions based upon historical US military campaigns
  • Unprecedented detail from helicopters and weapons to soldier models and explosions
  • Ultra-realistic flight models and physics

Gamers will instantly transform into fearless military soldiers as they go head to head with the Viet Cong Army as either a pilot, co-pilot, or gunner. While inside the replicated Huey chopper keep a close eye on the controls as well as on your enemy. The power to rewrite history and save the pride of the Vietnamese lies in the hands of those courageous enough to pilot into the Whirlwind Over Vietnam.
