Operation: Buy this cheap game

Despite receiving favorable previews as a solid title, Operation: Vietnam's release last August went largely ignored by gamers. As a reward for your apathy, Amazon is further discounting the already budget title, knocking three dollars off its listing to bring the price down to $16.99.

It's likely that you know next-to-nothing about the squad-based, top-down shooter, so we've embedded its trailer above for you to preview the bullet-filled action. As you can see in the clip, there are dozens of enemies just waiting around for you to buy the game and shoot them in the face.

Sending the game out on the same day as Rune Factory, Heroes of Mana, and Luminous Arc's release probably wasn't a good idea.

Though we weren't impressed with the screenshots we've seen, hearing previews describe Operation: Vietnam as a mix of Cannon Fodder and Metal Slug was enough to keep us at least a little bit interested. Majesco unceremoniously put out a trailer for the game a couple weeks ago, to little fanfare; you can check it out past the post break.
