Battlefield Vietnam Usage

 

First Person Shooters are the worst thing you could play using TV-Out. It wasn't that long ago I tried busting heads on Counter Strike with my 68cm television. While I didn't get very far, it was a good laugh.

 

DLP should fix up these problems. As you could see the text was that much easier to read in Windows. If this is anything to go by, the ability to see the enemies should be better, too.

 

The intro movie looks awesome. Pictures really don't do this screen much justice at all.

 

 

ChoppersÂ….this could be interesting.

 

 

Flying around in the choppers is so much fun and seeing enemies is so easy due to the large screen size.

 

 

Sniping can be done so well thanks to the technology behind this unit. As you can see for yourself it looks excellent and the only complaint you would have is that you have to move your head up, down, left and right so you can see the whole screen.

 

 

Battlefield Vietnam Verdict

 

Until now playing a First Person Shooter using standard TV Out just wasn't possible but as you can see for yourself it is these days. Sniping away in the bushes is so much fun and flying around with your choppers bombing the other team is excellent. Gaming like this is taking it to the next level.

 

Let's see how we go with a bit of role playing with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
