DOS - 1993
Description of Seal Team
One of the best 3D tactical combat simulations, I really don't know why this game never made it into any Hall of Fame.
In SEAL Team, you will assemble a 4-member SEAL team to carry out missions in the Mae Khong Delta during the Vietnam War. Missions cover a wide range, including espionage, rescue, recon, and demolition. The game's graphical and sound atmospheres are excellent (you'll know enemies are nearby from the boot-cracking sounds), as is the authenticity of hand signals, weapons, medals, and so on. There are dozens of SEAL commandos under your command, and you must be careful to let them all experience combat, or you might end up with only a handful of veterans but dozens of "green" soldiers. Each commando has different character statistics and specialty, and you will grow quite attached to them as the war wears on (although not to the personal level as Jagged Alliance).
For all its resemblance to other first-person 3D shooters, SEAL Team was definitely not designed for action gamers, because patience and observational skills are key to winning in this game: as in real life, you'll need to wait minutes, or even almost an hour, to ambush enemies successfully. Such long pauses when nothing seems to be going on will doubtless turn trigger-happy gamers off, but those who crave realistic simulation of Vietnam War will be well-rewarded with a very deep and engaging game. Two thumbs up!

Unfortunately, this game is prone to crashing in DOSBox...

The underappreciated forerunner of games like Call Of Duty and Ghost Recon... You command a 4-man squad of Navy SEALs, and can control each commando in 1st or 3rd person perspective, or assign targets and waypoints using the topo map. Tasks are eliminating and capturing Viet Cong and NVA, demolishing structures, and recovering arms and documents. You can also call support from fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, or patrol boats and mark their targets. For the time the weapons were realistic, with select-fire, limited ammunition, and physical damage effects (enemies and your own men can be hobbled and start limping). There are a lot of mines and trapwires you need to avoid. One hilarious aspect of the game is how frequently weapons jam and grenades fail to explode! Your men also die for no reason or get stuck in obstacles.
