Conclusion: Good game overall, was certainly better than what some game review sites had said it was. Good graphics, and the AI wasnt too bad. Feels abit strange playing a shooter in third person rather than first person as you're most used to looking striaght down the sights for targeting in first person.
Conclusion: The game is impressive and shocking. But I don't think it is very well executed. It is quite hard to aim accurately and hit the bad guys (and girls). And they just keep on coming, the biggest issue is dealing with the ammo situation. I found dismantling the booby traps in time quite hard and because of the linear format of the game not something that you can bypass. To sum it up I got bored quite quickly after getting bogged down.
Conclusion: This game may not be the best game on earth but it really does imerse you into the action.I mean you really do feel like your fighting in vietnam.Sure when you are runnin through a level you kinda are on a narrow path which makes the levels very linear.But the audio in this game is very well done.The graphics look pretty damn good to,exept for the draw distance isnt all that great.Another problem is that this game is way to short and way to easy.I recomend hard...
Summary: Graphics are pretty lame, trying to give you that gritty feel and impersonate a 1967 tv set. If they wanted to make it feel gritty, they should of cleared up the tv effect, made it darker (like saving private ryan) and made it 1st person. Its annoying how the enemy always use 2 lines or so like "I kill you GI" and "Die American!" it's just pretty childish.
Summary: Ok, i'll give it to you straight...this is the COOLEST WAR GAME EVER! I have played every MOH, brothers in arms, battlefield 1942 and even Vietcong:Purple Haze and I have to say Shellshock is better than all of them! The game provides all decent features a good war game should have.It has a simple but effective storyline, a gritty nature, good graphics and even a good soundtrack. While the game is gritty in nature, it is relitvly simple and only has 11 levels.
if violence and realism is your thing step this way

Summary: i decided to buy this game simply because i enjoyed studying vietnam in history. i hadnt rented it, playd a demo or seen footage of it. When it came through the post and i started playing it i felt like i was in the screen. one time i saw smoke and i tried to cough in real life for no reason. That is what i call realism. The game has a realistic combat system with every part of the body available to be destroyed.
Summary: Crikey! On the face of it shellshock has all the ingredients to make for a gritty, compelling (dare I say fun) 3rd person shooter. However, after completing the game in under 7 hours on (not very)hard mode, all i can say is that you should hang on to your precious cash and purchase Vietcong purple haze instaed. The graphics are truly atrocious and everything has a grainy look to it (a la silent hill 2).
Summary: Shellshock is a great game its intresting hard and it has great graphics.It can be a little frustrating at times but dont let that put you off. If you like gore and pure action this is the game for you. The Ai is like real life if the enemy is wounded they try and crawl to cover or still willingly try to shoot you, DONT MISS THIS GAME.
Summary: I hired this before I was thinking about buying it, and I'd recommend you'd do the same. I'm a massive fan of Apocalypse Now and Vietnam War based PC games, so was pretty excited about Shellshock coming out (one of the 1st of a whole wave of new Vietnam-based games coming out over the next few months). Problem is, I think the anticipation built up my expectations too much!
Summary: Shellshock nam 67 is an interesting game it isnt the usuall un of the mill war game, it has the deffinit jist of an action game. It shows the dispair and couragous activities of the men who gave their lives to the war. It is very grousame and hides nothing. The gameplay can be very frustrating but when you come to the end, it couldnt be more rewardidg. Overall it is a good game, however, it isnt going to be right for everyone. So think before you buy!!!!!
