Campaign Series: Vietnam. Indepth Review Special
Campaign Series: Vietnam Review – Welcome to the Jungle!
Having different nations across different time periods and using different equipment means that the scenarios included can vary wildly from one another and there’s a lot of fun and experimentation to be had with the 100+ scenarios included. Content-wise, it’s hard to impossible to fault CS: Vietnam. Jungle warfare aficionados will find themselves entertained for months and it’s hard to imagine anyone could play all the scenarios and find time to play anything else. If you enjoy the Vietnam conflict, the sheer amount of content included should be enough to justify a purchase.
Enjoy the Vietnam conflict and are craving more than what you already got?
Campaign Series: Vietnam considered
Helped by thick fog-of-war, plentiful cover, carefully engineered victory conditions, and a dash of Lua scripting, few of the foes I’ve attempted to humiliate thus far have shown much appetite for humiliation. Having been brutally ambushed and stealthily infiltrated more times than I care to admit, having chased shadows, been lured into minefields, and watched numerous friendly outposts fall to multi-directional, arty-supported attacks during the past week, I wouldn’t hesitate to rate CS: Vietnam’s “adaptive”, “nation-tuned” AI B+. To wring a higher rating out of me the CPU would need to demonstrate helicopter assault competence.

Final Thoughts: Time to Run Through the Jungle
Campaign Series: Vietnam is excellent. The core gameplay is solid, the appreciation of the unique factors of the conflict are well represented, and there is a reasonable learning curve. The vast amount of content will keep players going for quite some time, and I can’t imagine a better Vietnam War game on the PC right now. Go check it out!
An excellent wargame with a classic style and tons of content. Definitely worth your time.

Is this the most detailed Vietnam War Game in existence? Quite possibly yes!
… Especially for the grognards, you fans of military strategy, this game is unbelievable, and in my opinion the most in depth representation of the Vietnam War of all sides, the War of Indochina, etc, that you’re going to find.

Campaign Series: Middle East 1948-1985
BLUF – Bottom Line Up Front. The new [update of] Matrix Games Campaign Series Middle East 1948 – 1985 2.0 (ME 2.0) really has nothing revolutionary under the hood as regards game engine, AI or even gameplay. However, the cosmetic changes and additional scenarios are so vast and sweeping; one could consider this product to be an entirely new game vice an update. For those who have that original, this free reimaging is mandatory. For everyone else, the $ 19.99 US sale price (50%) is just plain silly to pass up. New body styling, paint and accessories have elevated a good game to exceptional.

To sum it up Campaign Series Middle East is a good tactical game of the years of warfare it portrays. If you are interested in the progression of warfare from WWII to modern, or are just in a WWII rut then take a look at Campaign Series Middle East 1945-1985. I have been in touch with Jason Petho of the Campaign Series Legion, the developers of the game. In 2017 you can expect a Campaign Middle East 2.0 version. This was a review of the 1.02 version.

The last turn/hex-based computer game produced on this subject was Talonsoft’s Divided Ground in 2001. That game and HPS’ earlier Middle East ’67 were both designed by John Tiller and covered the four big conflicts in the middle-east between 1948 & 1985: 1948’s War of Israeli Independence, the Suez crisis of 1956, the 1967 Seven-Days War and the Yom Kippur War of 1973. Much has change since then, and using Tiller’s engine, Jason Petho has led a crack team to update the Campaign Series to cover conflicts since 1973 and some interesting but overlooked operations in the 1950s and 1960s.
