Shellshock 2: Blood Trails
29 May 2011
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?
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: 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.
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.
Excerpt: Um. Right. So. It went a little something like this. I'm not exactly sure what happened here. It's a game released by one of the most prolific publishers in the world, and developed by the company that did the excellent Alien vs Predator franchise.
Conclusion: At about 8-10 hours, at most, to finish the game, there is simply no reason to even play through the game again. Unfortunately this game joins the piles of other failed Vietnam games. Even the addition of horror didn't help the game because it's not that scary.
