Unit 1968: the game review
I love the smell of napalm in the morning.
Finally, a game from Rolve which is not a blatant rip-off of something Valve-related… right? Unit 1968 describes itself as a "Semi-realistic Vietnam-war themed shooter", and that is what it is. You either play as a member of the United States Marine Corps, or Viet-Cong: the only difference between the two is weapons, voice commands and weaponry. There are 5 classes: Assault (faster movement speed), Engineer (2 more grenades), Medic (you can drop medkits), Support (you can drop ammo), and Sniper (self-explanatory).
From left to right: Assault, Engineer, Medic, Sniper, Support
I have been playing the game for a while now, and it has changed a lot: maps were added, maps were removed, guns/classes were balanced… and I can say that it is in a very good state at the moment. In my opinion, the game's balancing is okay, since it has some issues. The engineer class is rarely ever used (it was very OP back in the day since they had literal rocket launchers) and the Support class is pretty overpowered, since you get a machine gun which shreds at any range (but you cannot aim an MG unless you are prone).
There are only two gamemodes: Team Deathmatch and Rush. At the moment of writing this, there is only one Rush map. During Rush, the USMC is supposed to capture four points: first A, then B, C and D. The Viet-cong is supposed to prevent this from happening.

The gameplay feels smooth, and so is the firing, ragdolling and basically everything else in this game. However, the game's progress seemed to have stopped, there were no big updates lately. Back in the day, the game was updating quickly. There were constant improvements, additions, and balancing fixes. I really hope that the game will begin updating again, since it is probably one of the best shooters on Roblox.

So I am very proud to say that Unit 1968 is a good game: you definitely should try it out. However, as I said before, there is not a lot of content in the game, and I really, REALLY hope that they will add more.

Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
