Always good to see open space jungle mods for Crysis. We are not limited to the narrow streets of New York, and we are free to use any kind of stealth or rambo tactics we want…however, this time we won’t be using our trusty companion suit, we are on our own…in the middle of the Vietnam war.
I haven’t been to the crydev forums for a long time now, and I found this little mod called Vietcry in the moddb downloads section (which was banned from the main moddb frontpage to leave more space for the news), however this mod had no news about the release, so it’s time to write about it in my sort of a „worth playing” modblog mention. It was released a few days ago, and as already mentioned, has the oldschool medipack healing style, with no maximum strenght or invisibility and these kind of futuristic mambojambo: just you, and the thousand vietcong, in the middle of nowhere (actually there are a lot of mods for crysis, with similar approche).
The mod itself isn’t too long, but it has a green-brown colored landscape. I think Vietnam was never this beautiful. Also features a hardcore cold war themed soundtrack list, and an excellent german voiceacting. Maybe it will be frustrating for people with zero german languange skills, but I really loved it. The mod has its downside tho: some of the models are just reskins (hummer, soldiers), but the landscape will probably make it up for all of you.
