Has Shellshock Nam 67 been released anywhere yet and if so has anyone played it? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Yea, it's been released. Not a very good game. Men of Valor beats this game by far!

Did you play it on PC or console and what makes Men of Valour better? What are Shellshocks flaws? If you don't mind me asking. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
only got 54% in our best pc magazine

Damn that's pretty bad, thanks for that NJ
The game just doesn't feel right. It's third person, not much action, and doesn't seem like a vietnam game like Men of Valor does.

Fair enough, wow I really thought this game would be good, I guess not. Oh well change my order to Men of Valour, is it available on Xbox? http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Yes, it is out on xbox! I have the demo collecting dust! Played it once, but been hooked on Call of Duty.

I don't think it's worth a minor 54%. It's better than that. It's not the greatest thing around, but it is a somewhat decent shooter.

Ok now I am confused, VPC do you think it's worth spending $100aus of my hard earned money on Shellshock or is there something better in the same genre that I will get more enjoyment out of. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
Preferably with Multi Player, Split Screen prefered.
Well, I played both. Out of the 2 I say Men of Valor clearly is the better.

Well, considering that Men of Valor isn't even out yet, just save your money for that. Also, take a look at Vietcong: Purple Haze on the PC or XBOX which is a great Vietnam shooter. I would wait until Shellshock drops in price.

Sounds like a plan VPC thanks for your help guys. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I played Shellshock for about 3h. I couldnt stand it any more.
But wait for man of valor.
Oh, and if you didnt know, there is Man of valor MP demo out.

I'm a bit concerened.The same people who made Shellshock are making Killzone.Does this mean that Killzone will be bad.Actually I doubt it.Killzone looks awesome.But Shellshock sucked.But it makes you wonder if guerilla games is actually a good company.And although you already know that the game sucks to be positively sure it sucks here's what the pro's have to say.Shellshock sucks (http://pc.ign.com/articles/549/549812p1.html)
This review should point out specificlly why the game sucks.

We in Holland got 2 game developers, without a budget of 10 million dollars, and I thought this was one of their first games for PS2 (correct me if I am wrong), therefor it lacked quality.
The thought about a REAL setting is way better than most of the other Vietnam games, which try to entertain the player. This one should have thought the player that war is hell, and that both parties have violated human rights etc during war. If this game had less bugs, I'd bet it would give a more realistic image of the Nam war than any other game.
