    The first levels where you fight soldiers sucked, then the game started to build a unike gameplay with crazy wild zombie look a like soldiers, alot like the movie 24 days later or 24 weeks late! The game really turned out good if you chould fight your way through the bad start of the game.

    1st level lived up to the bad reviews, but it really did improve after that, as a casual gamer I liked the high frequency of check points that kept me in the game. I thought that the levels were varied and quiet imaginative. This game is not in the same league as kill zone 2 or COD 4 or 5, but it is also not as nearly as bad as some would have you believe.

    I just got this game for the 360, and so far I'm finding it very enjoyable, and decent. Graphics may not be the bast, but they are not the worst either; I'd say they are about average and comparable to that of Rainbow Six Vegas 2. Guns both look an sound nice, and have great iron sights. Controls are very easy to get used to, with controls similar to that of other FPS games.I just got this game for the 360, and so far I'm finding it very enjoyable, and decent.

Guns both look an sound nice, and have great iron sights. Controls are very easy to get used to, with controls similar to that of other FPS games. Story so far is very interesting, being in Vietnam, and getting attacked by zombie/infected and trying to find out what's happening. Very engaging. Atmosphere really gets you into the game, and at points sends chills up your spine. Very brutal with images of dismembered soldiers with blood dripping, or hearing the sounds of crying infants or women. Good game, definitely above average. Overall I give it a 7/10. There are a few cons about the game. One is the weapon switching. YOur guy just takes his sweet old time switching, and in a fire fight could mean death. The aiming is there as well. WHile it may not be that bad, its not that great either. Guns are accurate, and there is some sway to it, which I find realistic, but unless you have the sensitivity all the way up (or find a good balance you like), looking around while aiming can be a bit tedious. There are a few others but overall is a very fun and enjoyable game. Very underrated, and I suggest anyone who likes FPS, Vietnam, Zombies, and War to at least rent the game. Expand

    Well after playing this game for a few minutes I could already tell it was utter crap. The whole game suffers from "Turning Point: Fall of Liberty" syndrome.

There are also several annoying quicktime events through out the game, all of which were using the WASD keys (each frustratingly difficult). Now I don't get why this project wasn't canned. I played about 6 levels in, uninstalled it and was still pissed at exactly HOW bad this game is. I really would drag on with other tiny nit picks but it would be a waste of time. The game is probably the worst thing since Vegemite, don't even bother renting this piece of shit. 0/10 Expand

  1. Shellshock 2: Blood Trails is an insolvent try to bring back to life a forgettable war franchise, changing its context to the horror style. No matter from which angle you choose to look at Blood Trails, it’s a horrendous videogame. Boring, exasperating, and ugly in the most literal sense of the word.
  2. Rebellion's game positions uncomfortably between the greatest shooters currently on the market. Its poor technical side together with a boring level design, basic AI and the lack of variety in game modes, end up shaping a title that will soon surely fall into oblivion.
  3. The Vietnam War has never seemed so horrific in this shockingly poor first person shooter.
