Product Description

Platform: PC


At the height of the Vietnam War, a covert ops cargo plane carrying a top-secret consignment known only as 'Whiteknight' is lost over the deepest, uncharted jungles. Special Ops soldiers are immediately dispatched to the scene to retrieve the top secret shipment and one-by-one they disappear without a trace... until one month later, one of them suddenly walks out of the jungle. Crazed and deranged, something in the jungle had ripped out his humanity, poisoning his soul. Something in the darkness had driven him mad... and followed him out.

Taking the first-person war game and turning it on its head, Shellshock 2: Blood Trails places you in a war where fear takes on a whole new meaning.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible Terrible Terrible 8 Mar. 2009
By C. B

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Short review;- Don't buy, don't rent, don't borrow, don't bother, don't even stay on this page reading the rest of this review... just put your money or card away and look at other games.
The only thing that's really "Shock"-ing or frighting about this game is just how awful it is.

Summed-up this games looks, plays and feels like a few year old budget console game. Visuals at moments during some the cut scenes are almost decent but all else is so horribly outdated its plain ugly. Audio is a joke although again during some of the cutscene moments the voice acting is very decent. It almost generates a uneasy atmosphere but poor quality all over make it fail.

Performance also very poor especially considering poor visuals. I found forcing vsync off in the nvidia drivers helps reduce the cripling mouse lag

Controls ok for most but missing the obvious ability to jump. Can 'use key' leap over some small obstacles like low walls that you'd usually expect could be used as cover but they can't. Maps are littered with junk to get stuck on so a jump option was needed.

Quick time button bash survival events- My god! It's implementations like shown in this game that make me want to find out who invented this idea and slap them. Or better yet force them to play this game as that's much more cruel.
Also frustrating (and these days criminal) checkpoint only save system along with occasional inexplicably near impossible sections that mean you have to do sections over and over and over... and AI lacking- I mean missing any not just deficient.

It nearly shows potential as maybe an initial proof of concept early build but nothing else.

1.0 out of 5 stars Shocking! 30 April 2009

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
It's hard to believe Rebellion studios created the amazing Aliens V Predator game. That was over six years ago and they haven't been able to top it since.

Shellshock 2 would have reviewed badly in 2003 and today it isn't worth the time to load up onto your pc. I was surprised to notice that I wasn't asked to punch in a key-code (as is the standard fare for PC games). I suspect the makers knew there was little chance of this guff being shared between friends let alone pirated. Gameplay alarm bells were ringing when the first close combat attack asked me to punch in a combo of the arrow keys to push the attacker away. Keep in mind this is a first person shooter?

One of two things happened. Either the designers of this game were drinking bong water from the start or had just been defrosted from 2003 and suffered brain damage. Shellshock 2 is a terrible game and Rebellion and Eidos have damaged their reputations by sticking their names on the box.

1.0 out of 5 stars Never played anything Worse 21 July 2009
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I really haven't! Whilst I haven't previously read reviews for this game it looked interesting and didn't have that annoying Securom rubbish stuck on. The graphics looked palpable whilst the pictures made it look as though I was playing a FPS Silent Hill-type war game. But that isn't saying much. The game play is ropey, there are massive technical errors and I just had to switch it off because I found it so so bad.

I agree with one of the reviewers here, don't buy, don't rent, don't borrow, don't even bother. I regret my idiocy of forking money out for this piece of rubbish and will now go and bang my head against a brick wall for doing so. Avoid.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 25 Feb. 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
The game was linear and predictable, and I was glad to finish it. There are some pluses: good graphics plus zombies. However I can't recommend this.

Also the SecuROM DRM is buggy and the game denied the fact that the CD was in the drive (it was!) The game just would not run at first. SecuROM support were useless, but I found an online crack that let me play it. I almost wish I hadn't!
