SHELLSHOCK 2: BLOOD TRAILS PS3
Top Customer Reviews
While it is somewhat smooth, you could never call the controls decent. Too many FPS games like COD, Timesplitters, Red Faction are far smoother and accurate. Shellshock is missing something. Yes settings allow you to teak the sensitivity etc, but it just doesn't fix it.
While graphics are better than Doom, we have since moved into the 21st Century. I could easily find PS2 titles with better graphics.
Poor gameplay, poor AI, poor graphics, poor setting - it is an epic fail.
Realising all the intrinsic problems of its setting, the developer Rebellion has added a secret ingredient: zombies - akin to Call of Duty 5: World at War. Now although zombies are turning into the biggest cliche since bald space marines we have to admit adding a horror element to this particular game is an excellent idea - in theory at least. Unfortunately there's no real way to prove this, given the execution here is so abominably poor. I honestly don't know which is worse: this or Spark Unlimited's "Legendary" and Turning Point: Fall Of Liberty.Read more ›
However, once the game's playable, it becomes a mess of poor combat and bad design choices. Aiming is twitchy, and movement feels disjointed. Levels follow a straightforward path; the lack of a jump button enforces this route. Even the story collapses, resorting to loading screen information for plot developments.
The absence of multiplayer/online options is shocking, especially as the single player is completed within 5 hours. There isn't even trophy support. Developer Rebellion have recently specialised in PSP games; its no exaggeration to imagine this is how Shellshock 2 started out.
The weapon set is also lacklustre, with only a few selections. The 1969 setting means they should pack a punch, more than WW2 games. Yet combat has no sense of power, or even connection. Enemies barely flinch when shot and animations are exceptionally poor. In the Vietnam jungles, it's frustratingly difficult to tell who's shooting at you. The inclusion of zombies help matters, with both GI and VC troops infected. Close quarters combat is more fun than long range battles against humans. The sub standard AI is also better disguised by an enemy whose sole objective is to run straight at you.
QTE's make an appearance, requiring button prompts to avoid traps, VC soldiers etc. Tiresome stuff. There are a few good moments; surviving a torture scene, and navigating an infected village stand out.Read more ›
You play the role of the Vietnam War soldier Nate Walker, whose brother Cal has become infected deep in the Vietnamese jungle with a virus known as Whiteknight - turning him into a rabid 28 Days Later-style zombie - and captured by the US military. In the opening level Cal breaks free as the Viet Cong attack, spreading pandemonium around the US forces, as Nate makes his escape from Charlie whilst trying to stop his brother from spreading the infection.
It's difficult to be specific about what makes this game so awful, as really it's a collection of very poor gameplay elements brought together to make something which is - perhaps uniquely - worse than the sum of its parts. The only way in which Shellshock 2 displays any kind of competence is in its controls, which are at least workable; in every other meaningful sense it's an abortion of a game which ranks amongst the worst this generation has yet seen.
The horror elements veer from being almost acceptable to utterly terrible.Read more ›
