Excerpt: When you know next to nothing about a game prior to it arriving in the post, you tend to go into it expecting the worst. It's hard not to wonder why said game hasn't received the usual pre-release press tour and why only a handful of screen shots, and even less video footage, have been released.
Conclusion: Especially when there is a ghost showing up, people popping up like you know them. The game is just terrible on delivery. Zombies are always good, Left 4 Dead, Dead Rising. This is epic fail. Achievements: 2/10 Standard list. But 15 points for beating this game twice? Good thing it is impossible to die on easy. Overall: 1.4/10 This is that bad...
Conclusion: Chances are good that you won't hate ShellShock 2: Blood Trails. But odds are also high that you won't particularly enjoy it, either, due to the frustrating controls and the forgettable game design. Even if you're interested in the Vietnam War and have a zombie fetish, you can likely find a better use for your money.
Pros: A few good scares, along with some unsettling gore.
Cons: Dumb enemies, Terrible controls make accurate aiming almost impossible, Simplistic levels based around triggering spawn points, Short single-player campaign, No multiplayer.
Summary: " Shellshock 2: Blood Trails " seems to be a missed opportunity in every respect. From the opening cut scenes the game does offer promise however the poor graphics and gameplay let the overall game down in a big way. In addition the lack of any form of multiplayer gives me a feeling that the overall game is pretty incomplete and was a rushed release.
Excerpt: Here's the set-up. You're an American soldier in Vietnam. You ain't never been so scared in your life, the title screen informs you. And then, suddenly, you're in a building filled with smoke, and some dispicable army veteran starts being racist about the Vietnamese, mumbles something about a chemical called Whiteknight turning everyone into zombies, and then your infected friend grabs you and pleads for his life.
Summary: Klipsch Audio Technologies is an American loudspeaker company who have produced some high-end, high fidelity loudspeaker systems including some professional cinema speakers. So when I heard that they were going to stamp their expertise into the gaming headset market, it caught my attention - my ears were ready to go ears-on with one of their two flagship headsets - the KG-200 Pro Audio Gaming Headset.
Pros: Sturdy build quality, Deep bass response, Removable microphone boom
Cons: Ear cups material could be less abrasive on the ears, Cheap-looking plastics and chrome hints, Mid and high end response isn't as fulfilled as its competitors
