Tour of Duty, Vietnam, what are the differences?
Someone just asked me this question and it made me realise I wasn't entirely sure. If I remember correctly the main differences are:
  • the addition of the campaign game in ToD, 
  • Vietnam has about 70 scenarios  whereas ToD has just 40.   
Are there others?

They cover differnt actions - so it's not a rehash of the same scenarios.

IMO,

Vietnam is more focused on the Marine involvement in Vietnam - a lot of that stuff happened in I Corp area along the DMZ. The Khe San hill fights for instance.

Tour of Duty is more focused on the battles fought by the Army - Central Highlands, (but has marine scenarios too). The game now includes the house to house series which references a text regarding the Tet Offensive.

There are classic battles found in both titles. I tend to enjoy Vietnam as it has that early 60s Cold War feel to it and has scenarios for the some of the first engagements of the war.

I think both are essential for a complete retrospective of the war though. I recently watched Ken Burns Vietnam doc and every battle in that I could find a scenario for in either one of the two games.
