    I can't believe that a game like this could see daylight!...just horrible...

    From the release date , february 2009 you could assume that a shooter game with a story/location based on the Vietnam War would have decent graphics and gameplay mechanics (this is not the case in this particularly titl... Read Full Review

    ShellShock 2 is only worth playing for people who are very bored and craving a FPS.

    The Good: Scary atmosphere with lots of gore, decent visuals, only four hours long The Bad: Horrible gun play, dumb AI, sloppy animations, lame story, bad quick time and scripted events, enemies are way to tough to ta... Read Full Review

    Waste of Time

    The only reason I have given this game a 2.0 rating is because of the look and detail. The eeriness is good and it has a few good scares, the scenery detail is quite realistic (similar to the details in Call of Duty 4), ... Read Full Review

    One of the worst first-person shooters I've played this year.

    First of all, there should never have been a sequel to the first disastrous game "ShellShock". At least this sequel is actually *better* than the first. When I first started the game, I've noticed that the graphics...... Read Full Review

    this game is a fine example of what happins when a game has no DEMO before it comes out and now i know why.

    if they would have put out a demo no one thats a real gamer would have bought it. so from now on no demo no buy. i have a feeling thats why they don't but out demos now. once they put out demoes on almost every game but ... Read Full Review

    Shellshock 2: Blood Trials tries where others have succeeded and fails at that.

    Shellshock 2: Blood Trials is the sequel to Shellshock Nam 67. If you've played Shellshock Nam 67 then based on previous experience you can assume that you're a soldier fighting in the Vietnam War. Well you are fighting ... Read Full Review

    Horrible game...

    Well it started ok, there was a reasonable amount of atmosphere, some plot about soldiers and weird stuff. Fine. You start playing it and notice the combat system is a little clunky and unsatisfying, but perhaps the ... Read Full Review
