Purple Haze is a narrative-based first-person shooter
set during the Vietnam conflict. Players get the chance to
in a 19-mission single player campaign, featuring 17 of the
best levels from the PC version and 2 new missions unique
from the shadows choosing from more than 30 unlockable weapons
including an M16, M79 grenade launcher, Mosin-Nagent, Sten
MKII and the M60 - or you can throw a grenade or launch handheld
attacks with a knife. Stay alert or your next step could trigger
a trip wire, spring a Punji whip trap or send you down into
a spiked pit.
can start a quick fight and jump straight into the action,
you can play as either a US or Vietcong soldier, choose a
weapon, map, number of enemies and difficulty then battle
the clock for the best time.
there are more negative elements to this game than positive.
These include slow (and I mean slow!) load times, poor graphics,
bugs in the game that mean it's easy to get stuck in the terrain
and unable to get out without switching off your console,
and in the story based game when you do finally meet any hostile
fire you'll be dead before you know what's happening. Also
your pointman has to be about the most useless person alive.
He wanders around aimlessly, occasionally just walking backwards
and forwards with no aim, and when he does go off in the right
direction, he is so slow as to be laughable. In fact the only
positive element is the 1960s soundtrack, including music
from Iggy and the Stooges, Deep Purple and the Standells.
short then, it's slow, ugly, and has poor A.I. Personally
I wouldn't touch this! Probably
about as close to the horror of real enemy combat as you could
imagine - if you get my drift! A truly awful game.
