and got motivated to go out and buy Whirlwind Over Vietnam. I couldn't wait to fly some sorties in some Hueys over the Ia Drang valley in 1965. I loaded the game on my machine, fired it up, and was sadly disappointed by it. No mission builder, no online component, no training or tutorials, no single missions... Nothing but a 10 mission campaign. What a piece of ****.

We Were Soldiers = Good
Whirlwind Over Vietnam = Bad

In my opinion it's probably the worst war film I've ever seen... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

Not a bad film, in my opinion, just way to much flame from grenades etc, just like windtalkers. havet seen whirlwinds so cant say but i ve heard nothing good about it from local game spot etc.

most continuity errors ive ever seen were in enemy at the gates and the saving private ryan openeing and steamboat willie scenes.
