Vietnam's Emobi Game's 7554 Call of Duty-like Videogame

Updated on February 10, 2012

My, my, my-how times have changed since the Vietnam War ended in 1975. For a communist country that hated the imperialists from France (1946-54) to the Americans ( 1963-75) and everything capitalism stood for, they sure love it in the 21st Century! How frickin' ironic is that! But, that is it. Whether you buy clothes made their or your Nike shoes, now, you can also buy authentic videogames produced there. I guess 55,000 Americans died for absolutely no reason, all we had to do was wait!

Enter Emobi's first real wargame, "7554". After six years of development in Vietnam, Nguyen Tuan Huy (32 yrs) and other Vietnamese programmers there have produced a very slick first person game loosely based on Dien Bien Phu, 1954. Uncle Ho would be damn proud of this. The Vietnamese group modeled their game after their favorite from America, Call of Duty, and CoD's influence is heavy but still not as good. I doubt if many of the gamers playing this shoot'em game even knows much about the historic last stand by the French in 1954 and one that almost had the US drop the A-bomb there to keep the French in power.

Videogames are so popular in Nam that the government closes down all arcades after 10 pm because it impacts school age kids.

Producing any video game is costly and this ranks up there at $850,000. But, the industry is $65 billion, so it is worth the effort, even though the games costs $12. The game is available as a download. While it is a Vietnamese company and first, the AI and graphics are all German from Xaitment. Many samples are available YouTube. I found the game your typical first person game, moving, firing weapons, exchanging weapons, and the battle scenes very nicely done similar to Call of Duty. The game is smooth playing and music is, again, like CoD. You can see the heavy influence of CoD. A game is a game and this one is good for the price.

The game is for Win PCs with a min. of P4 3Ghz, 2GB of Ram, 8GB HDD, graphics card from Nvidia 8600GT or better.

      The Vietnam conflict for the Vietnamese had little to do with communism or capitalism, but was instead a fight for freedom & self-governance - they wanted the imperialist occupiers out. You'd think Americans of all people would understand that concept... maybe even sympathise... but alas... no
