    Shadow Ops had a good chance of being great but they dropped the ball bigtime.

    Rated on June 04, 2005 by Gunman710

    Shadow Ops is a perfect example of what not to do in a FPS. It is completely linear game that looks like it should have been on the N64. The graphics are outdated and are quite flaky most of the time...

    I ended up enjoying Shadow Ops: Red Mercury a whole lot more than I anticipated. The game was exactly what I expected when I bought it off of the bargain rack: an extremely basic run-and-gun shooter ...

    Hollywood script, action and sound effects, just like a movie!

    Rated on June 25, 2007 by KingLim

    This ain't a very balanced FPS and it's ridiculously difficult at times, but it still packs a punch based on its intense gunfights and tremendous THX certified sound. Play it through your home system ...

    Rated on April 25, 2005 by Payasoplas

    First of all, I hate playing in PCs even when my computer meets the requirements I prefer playing the console version, but if the PC version is less than half the price of the console version it's ob...

    Over the top and under the bottom.

    Rated on June 05, 2005 by Sniper

    Shadow Ops: Red Mercury is a nice surprise I found in the bargain bin for a measly $15, which makes it a great buy in my books. The reason is an intense single-player campaign that runs and guns like ...

    This is a real Medal Of Honor wannabe. But a succesful try it is.

    Rated on March 05, 2006 by olleost

    This is a real Medal Of Honor wannabe. But a succesful try it is. The sound is good. The echos and reprocutions from gun fire are adjusted to sound like they should when moving from an interior to a...

    Like a modern Medal of honor,but it lacks the sort of feel most other shooters have.

    Rated on July 11, 2006 by chalker

    Shadow ops is a modern first person shooter where you play as a special or shadow operative named Frank Hayden and you are in search of Red Mercury,a nuclear weapon to stop and retrieve it. And when ...
