And the release date for Europe would be the third september.

4th Aug 2004, 17:14
I don't know of any specific updates to the game, except to the graphics engine. The game looks a heck of a lot better than it did when I was showing it at E3 this year.

Also, I'm sorry to say, there will not be any multiplayer....:(

Still a really fun game though. I've already beaten it twice. :cool:

It says on Gamespot that the PC release date is 8/24/04. Is that true?

Jumpin_Jebus
4th Aug 2004, 23:28
No, the date Gamespot is listing is not correct. The game launches on all 3 platforms on 9/14/04.

alright man i heard you the first time.......geez:eek:

LOL, sorry 'bout that. My mouse and I had a fight, apparantly the mouse won. :mad:

AgentOrange_section8
5th Aug 2004, 02:59
good at least we know that they tweaked up the graphics and didnt just delay the game for the money:) so all of the people saying that Eidos or Guerilla aint doin nothin to the game an only want the money well sorry i guess they did do something to the game...o jebus since you've played it already how many hours of gameplay would it be...and do you think Men of Valor would be a better game or Shellshock Nam'67

Jumpin_Jebus
5th Aug 2004, 15:08
Hours of gameplay vaires quite a bit depending on how you play through the game. Some of the levels had our QA peeps pulling their hair out in clumps. I would take a rough guess of about 15-30 hours. Also, SSN '67 does have great replay value IMHO.

As for Men of Valor, from what I've seen it looks like a pretty sweet game, but it doesn't appear to have the gritty "feel" and atmosphere that SSN '67 has. :D

~Jebus

AgentOrange_section8
5th Aug 2004, 15:55
Well that sounds good enough for me. if i beat the game quicker then that i'll replay it like 5 times. thanks for the info. yeah i guess your right about MOV it doesnt have your fellow G.I.'s head on a sharp bamboo pole sticking out the ground. anyways thanks.

I dont think the delay would have helped eidos out financialy anyway.... From what i can tell people have been pumped about this game since april... (Thats when i reserved my copy at least)

and whats happening with the whole prostitution thing... what actually happens. And what about the drugs, do you just sell it or can you use them as well?

Oh yeah and JJ do you know the other weapons that say comming soon on the official website?:confused:

SgtSpecht1234
8th Aug 2004, 22:54
why the hell does europe get it before us? thats not very fair, they get it practically 2 weeks before us, plus they better not push it back again...

SgtSpecht1234
9th Aug 2004, 05:36
and all the makers have the game....all this waiting is making me insane!!!!! if i wait any longer, ill be waited out and like....croak or something...yeah croak.... But i wish it wouldhave come out by now, if its already done, why dont the people release it already?

SgtSpecht1234
10th Aug 2004, 02:27
Well, i don tthink they are being greedy, but if its done, why not just release it? i mean, whats the point in having it done, and letting it sit in warehouses to collect dust untill september??

Jack455
10th Aug 2004, 03:37
Oh no here we go again .... LOL :rolleyes:

10th Aug 2004, 07:24
i went to gamestop and they said it was going to be ONLINE!!!

10th Aug 2004, 07:48
well im glad to know when it is coming out. it was supposed to be a summer game to help me survive untill gta san andreas comes out. but at least it will kill that last month off. i hope it is worth the wait.

SgtSpecht1234
10th Aug 2004, 15:24
Nah, its not going to be online, its going to be great even if it is offline, i could care less if it was an online game, i dont have the hook ups to get it online anyways, so its no problem for me.

CampKillYourself
11th Aug 2004, 21:18
yah it is online.. i called gamestop yet again and they said that it was going to be online for all 3 platforms

ACEofSPADES87
11th Aug 2004, 21:23
Shellshock Nam '67 will not be ONLINE!!!!!!!!! Unless gamestop knows something everyone else in the world besides eidos doesn't know. IT WILL NOT BE ONLINE.

This is not true, you have recieved incorrect information from gamestop.

CampKillYourself
11th Aug 2004, 21:49
MOST OF THE PEOPLE CLAIMING TO BE EIDOS INFORMERS ARE PROBABLY FRAUDS!!! But anyway im just passing on what i heard and gamestop told me that it was definetly online but you know what, we will see whos right when it is released

CAMP, I sit twenty feet from CLUMSY. Yes, he works at Eidos (as I do) And yes he's telling the truth, there is NO ONLINE component to the game. See the rather nifty website:

Shellshock Game Site (http://www.eidosinteractive.com/gss/legacy/shellshock/main.html)

12th Aug 2004, 03:03
www.shellshockgame.com sucks... it hasnt been updated since june.... Why would Gamestop lie about that? and if you guys work there you can ship me a game:D now and i can test it for you to see how well it will do

CampKillYourself
12th Aug 2004, 03:16
why hasnt eidos updated the website... it was good back in june when it was supposed to come out, but there hasnt been any updates for weapons, pin up girls, and journal entries. i think i know one of the other guns, the grease gun, but thats it. could you guys tell me some other weapons.. oh yeah when i said well see who was right i just meant i dont know, i guess ill know for sure when it comes out.

Why is everyone so hyped about GTA?? I mean its the same story over with only different characters and stuff, it looks good but im not to excited for it. Why is everyone else hyped out about it? Im more excited for MGS3! now that looks like a great game, i would say better than Andreas to. (now i hope angry gamers dont try to sneak up on me and slit my throat :D )

13th Aug 2004, 10:16
When does the game come out in Australia?

SgtSpecht1234
14th Aug 2004, 21:47
That went off topic quick...which game are you talking about?

SgtSpecht1234
14th Aug 2004, 22:05
also, another question to the makers, Will the character you play as have a voice and name? Or will he be Mr. Silent like in GTA 3 and just nod his head or something?

CKY1709
23rd Aug 2004, 04:11
thats a good question. But ive been watching different videos for shellshock and there is different writing on the helmet in a few of them. is there anyway you can choose what it says?

AgentOrange_section8
23rd Aug 2004, 05:02
hopefully! because in each Vid it looks diff writing on the helmets for each character. well anyways we had this topic before mine would say "Nuke Tha GO0K"

SgtSpecht1234
23rd Aug 2004, 05:05
I hate it when people use racist comments like that, but thats how people really were back then, i dunno, but it bothers me sometimes...back on subject, hopefully your character talks and has a name and stuff, that'd be pretty cool, like customize your own name tag and stuff

AgentOrange_section8
23rd Aug 2004, 05:09
^ come on man if a certain race of people were whackin all your friends/soldiers and you saw them gettin ripped to shreds or blown up by land mines or stabbed by Punji sticks you wouldnt hate them?? and yeah thats how it was back then! plus im ALLOWED to say it and i cant be racist against asian/pacific islanders because im Filipino im from the Philippines so im Asian! :D good day! BTW sorry if i offended you or anyone else if i did im sorry and i didnt mean to offend you i mean its only for the game i dont call my brother a gook (actually i do) but im sorry!:p

SgtSpecht1234
23rd Aug 2004, 05:11

AgentOrange_section8
23rd Aug 2004, 05:19
me neither my ideas about SSN'67 have run out...even though the they were pretty whack.....Battlefield 2 is gonna kick arse...that new mod for Battlefield Vietnam the WW2 one is weird... OH YEAH do you think this games gonna get Game of the Year?

SgtSpecht1234
23rd Aug 2004, 05:23
i Doubt it, MGS 2 didnt even get game of the year, so i doubt Shellshock will, maybe MGS3 will or GTA San Andreas, but not shellshock, teher is a slim chance though

AgentOrange_section8
23rd Aug 2004, 05:24
yeah i think GTA: SA will get it

ACEofSPADES87
23rd Aug 2004, 16:18
I know I'm alone on this, but I hate the Grand theft auto games. Especially the new one, I hate the character you have to be.

AgentOrange_section8
23rd Aug 2004, 17:04
why because hes black??

ACEofSPADES87
23rd Aug 2004, 17:47
no because the game promotes gang violence.<post edited by moderator>


Note From Moderator:

Gang violence is bad thing in general, and it is fair to debate whether our industry promotes violence or merely reflects it. However, such crime cuts across the entire racial spectrum in our country. Any comments associating such activity with any ethnic group, however innocent or well intentioned, can be found to be offensive and don't belong here.

SgtSpecht1234
25th Aug 2004, 02:59
I'd have to Kinda agree with Spades, im not to interested in GTA either, its the same thing over and over only with upgraded features and new people, besides that its the same plot and everything, and to some people (Like me) It can get very old, very quick.

SgtSpecht1234
27th Aug 2004, 00:57
This is kinda a dumb question to ask, hopefully SOMEONE will help answer it...Do bodies stay through the game? or do they just dissappear right away after they're killed? cause if they dissappear...that'd suck...

CKY1709
27th Aug 2004, 01:54
i dont think they disapeer cause in the gameplay videos when you shoot them they fall down and stay there
but i couldnt tell you cause i havent played the game.

SgtSpecht1234
27th Aug 2004, 01:56
Well thats better than they dissappear i guess...

ACEofSPADES87

ACEofSPADES87
29th Aug 2004, 17:20
They're not allowed to due that. The Sept 14th release date is def. If they are gonna do that. Guerrilla and Eidos should say goodbye to any chance this game is gonna sell well when they do eventually release.

SgtSpecht1234
29th Aug 2004, 17:24

CKY1709
4th Sep 2004, 14:26
hobbit do you have it? is it good? dont give anything away though cause i want to find out on my own.

Hobbit
4th Sep 2004, 16:05
Yes I have it

It is not what I expected, I expected it to be more realistic than this. It's still too much Rambo style, and enemies should die quicker than multiple shots.

The objectives are sometimes unclear. I am stuck now in a mission where I have to find a journalist. I am supposed to talk to a villager but there is no way to talk to him. So i tried shooting him in the leg (maybe by force was what I am supposed to do), but then I wounded him. Then I shot him and suddenly everybody was running and the AI friendlies wasted everybody!! One wounded old man came to me with his walking stick and kept hitting me, I was like please don't make me hurt you, then a friendly AI shot him. It was a massacre and all my fault :'(. Well I blamed the developers for making the objective unclear. We will see what the judge in court says.

You cannot move over even the smallest ridges, no jump button. Even 2 year olds could move oevr that ridge... but me, a grown up well trained soldier could not ?!?!

The traps are really cool and very well done and hidden. You have to sue the arrow keys in the right sequence quickly to dismantle them or they blow in your face.

The vehicles and helicopters and tents look very realistic. Basecamp looks realistic too, though it could haev been a bit busier.

Shooting with a rifle is very neat (trying to get 1 shot 1 kill).

Sniping is difficult but fun.

The villagers look really realistic. And one female villager... well I have the hots for her :-P. And they are triplings (there are 3 of them in the same village) ... imagine doing it with all 3 of them at the same time... well just kidding sorry.

The environment looks nice, but sometimes a bit empty (the environment where you can walk is nice, but sometimes near the edges you just see empty hills).

The friendly AI soldier's speech is sometimes very repetitive, saying the same thing over and over again.

You can easily recognise women VC troops, and the first time I was really hesitating to fire. But then she screamed something very unnice to me (you are going to die "something") so I did it, I actually shot her, I cried all night seeing it over and over again... .

Well what else do you want to know?

Hobbit
4th Sep 2004, 16:52
Well i figured something out from where I am stuck. Monty (a translater) is supposed to go talk to the villager but he isn't. I retried the mission 3 or 4 times with the same result (nothing).

CKY1709
4th Sep 2004, 21:01

SPOILERS:

Yes you can, and then they are running around and screaming and a woman was lying wounded on the floor talking somethign in Vietnamese... I think she was complaining, don't ask me why she complained... I had everything under control... ahumm.

But I figured it out. I am through now. I just had to continue along the route and there was the journalist. I was mislead by the Lt saying that somebody had to ask the villager where the journalist was.

And no I was not really crying :D . But if you are female, I DO want to cry on your shoulder. :D .

Some news on other missions (SPOILERS): mortar strikes, napalm strikes I have witnessed!! And there is a mission where you have to defend some kind of old vietnamese fortress (Castle like), you go behind a stationary gun overheating rather fast, and then start shooting they are coming in by dozens at a time! Then we had to pull back and I could snipe from above.

There were lots of POW's in that camp, and there were dead mutilated US bodies all over the place. There are lots of bodies in missions and heads on spikes and they look really bloody. And throwing a grenade in some VC or NVA troops, they splatter and it looks awful when you look at the body parts.

The multiple shots were needed because I was shooting with a smg it appeared, not the m16. With the m16 rifle it went a bit faster, if they were close enough.

Well I joined the special operations last evening; after my excellent target practise on the civilians, my achievements didn't go unnoticed!! Now I gotta use stealth and kill the VC women with knives from close by. Thank god this isn't real life for me!!

5th Sep 2004, 13:07
Just played it for several hours (laughing at those who cannot muhahahaha)... sorry couldn't resist. To make the wait an even heavier burden, some new stories!!

SPOILERS:

You see a cutscene where you are in a huey helicopter flying over a town and then suddenly hell breaks lose, the gunner is firing but he is shot, the pilots are kinda panicking telling you to get your behind to the machine gun in the chopper... yep that's right. firing that heavy mg on the side of the huey on the poor NVA and VC below!!

Then the chopper lands and you are outside, in the middle of a city. Then you see some very cruel city fights. They are hiding in buildings and behind windows, there is even a nasty sniper.

THen all of a sudden you come in a quiet neighbourhood, you see some civilians bended over to some dead husbands and wives who didnt make it. You walk closer, and suddenly they start running, a friendly screams "AMBUSH!!!" and then hell breaks lose again. I throw a grenade and see some VC women with guns flying through the air. One crawls away shouting something in english. Then I look at the wall with some grafiti on it "go home USA" or something.

I continue through the city, and there is my objective, an american flaming some VC leftovers. We join in and we talk a bit about how we missed all the fun. Suddenly I hear a whistle, and there they coem again wave after wave... . It was hell!! I picked up a rifle (I think it is a German Mauser, 5 bullets in each magazine, reload after every shot) and go for some 1 shot 1 kills. I did pretty well. I tried to flank em but ran into an mg nest and died :'(.

what gun can you pick in the first level and how long until you can use the m16

Hobbit
5th Sep 2004, 14:22
SPOILERS:

Well you start with some sort of an smg I dunno which one. Then you shoot some VC and you can pick up whatever they were using, AK47, mauser like rifles, some heavier machine guns, their grenades. It doesn't take long before you can get the m16. And you can sometimes pick em up from enemy VC who got it from dead US troops (I figure). Some of them even have that grenade thrower M79 or whatever it's called. And RPG rocket launchers!! Ohh and of course the m60!! Really cool! Some VC use mortars but I couldn't use that.

You can pick up trophies though (insigna's, small buddha statues), and after each mission you see how much you missed (for instance: trophies: 8 out of 14). Maybe it depends on the trophies which weapons are released.

If you earn money ( don't know if you earn money by getting these insigna's or for doing missions) you can even go to a h**ker area, and ask a lovely girl for some "boom boom", you see her standing sexy int he doorway, and you enter the building!

Here's an overview of the weapons I can get at the shooting range (what you pick there you keep for the mission). I get these after several hours of playing, the rifle on my back is the latest addition :-).

Dang... you guys are lucky you still have everything in front of you :-(. I just completed the game.

The last mission is really really really HOT!!

SPOILERS:

You have to defend the basecamp and there are just hundreds and hundreds of NVA troops and sappers coming in. And there I was with my Mauser rifle (I always pick that one because I love 1 shot 1 kill). I was shooting a round every 3 seconds and made every round count (well tried to at least). And only because of my excellent shooting skills I lived through it, along with just 1 other pal. (btw the stationary machine guns, you can use them as well!!)

I believe the M-14 was, then when the M-14 discontinued they brought in the M-16's, then they had to remodel the M-16 alittle bit, because problems with the mechanisms jamming....Anywayz i have a question?...Is this game going to be as good as they say it is? I mean i dont want the run-around, i just want some honesty..I dont wanna spend money if this game will be a blow-off...And hearing some of the problems people previously said, like you cant switch rate of fire?..Hmmm too me that would be the most important thing, save ammo, and accuracy is more better...And i hear something about you cant shoot dead bodies? Hmmmm well that kind of sux, but i guess who would be sick enough to shoot a body thats already dead...All i am looking for is a Virutal NAM experience...So i ask you all this...Will i be able to experience what they did in NAM, and is it worth my money purchasing?:confused:

Maybe for some army troops but not all..it wasn't standard for all until 67,the m14 and other weapons were mixed with the m16 so not everyone had an m16 until more were made..the m16 was being made in 1958 but didn't find its way into military hands until the 60's and it took several years to get the army to buy the m16 in bulk.

Ok....The M-16 when it first came out started with the .223 remignton round, then at later years it went up too a much bigger round...But if i was in NAM outta all weapons i would of chose an M-14 springfield...Semi- Auto too Auto, only problem was that they were freaking heavy, and they had a 7.62mm....M-16 is scum compared to the M-14...HaH if i could i would of asked for an M-14 to fight these damn Iraqis...M-14 forever!!!

Until the introduction of the M-16, the M-14 was the standard rifle of the US forces and saw service in Vietnam from 1957 onwards until its replacement. The M14 national Match (Accursed) was the sniper rifle variant, later renamed the M-21.

Production of the M14 ceased in 1964 but a further variant was the M14A1 which came close to being a light machine-gun. The M14A1 had a pistol grip, a folding fore-hand grip about half-way down the forestock, a folding bipod, a shoulder strap, and a sleeve was fitted over the muzzle to act as a compensator when firing fully automatic. This helped to keep the barrel down and prevent climb.

The M-14 was adopted in 1957 as the successor to the WWII M-1 Garand, and was basically an evolution of that rifle.

The main and more obvious improvements were the gas system and magazines. On the M-1 the magazine was fixed and had to be loaded using a charger. On the M-14, detachable 20-round box magazines were used. The normal M-14 fired semi-automatic only. A slide-on bipod could be provided, and the rifle fitted the M-76 grenade launcher which was slipped on to the flash suppressor and secured to the bayonet lug.

The M-14 weighed 5.1-kg (11.22 pounds) with a full magazine and cleaning kit carried. It had a maximum effective range on semi-automatic without the M-2 bipod of 460-meters. When the bipod was added this range increased to 700-meters.

A special suppressor was fitted to the muzzle of the sniper rifle which did not affect the performance of the bullet, but reduced the velocity of the emerging gases to below that of sound. This made location very difficult as the target heard only the crack of the bullet and no shot from the rifle.

It says right there that the m14 ceased in 1964 then got replaced by the m16A1.






And that wasn't the m16 being made in 58. It was named the AR15 first before they changed it.;) . Nice try.Production of the M14 ceased in 1964 but a further variant was the M14A1 which came close to being a light machine-gun

Ok, Im gonna try and change the tone here...Ok last night i decided to go around searching for forums, and found some pretty sad reviews about this game...:( I mean i saw one review saying

"SIMPLISTIC, PREDICTABLE, REPETITIVE.
Feels like you're being led by the nose through a narrow path, no freedom whatsoever. No clarity on when to take the lead, and when not to. No realism here...you get a life meter, that re-fill very fast, after getting shot up, just duck, 5 to 10 seconds you're at 100% health again."

^^^^ Now once again i didn't write this..This is something i found on EBgames.com So i guess this person played the game for console...I' am wondering is this true? That you have no freedom of roaming around? and that your life comes back? I mean come on i hope this is a HOAX, cuz honestly this review put me in AWE...Come on guyz let me know what the deal is here?...Latezzz

ACEofSPADES87
10th Sep 2004, 21:55
Lets just say it's difficult to die in this game. As for the roaming around thing.....You can walk around but there are clearly obviouse wall boundries. At some points you have to walk over a certian point to advance further, Although I had fun with the game, it didn't give me the feel of being a grunt in Vietnam.

Although I do like that they tried to show you the atrocities of the Vietnam war. They would've done that more succesful if they made the A.I.more responsive. I felt as if your squad mates were just there for show. And the enemy A.I. did not fight at all like N.V.A. soldiers. PAVN and N.V.A were experts at cover and concealment, and in this game they just stand there shooting, with the occasional standing being a rock. But that's only because they were spawned there.

Another thing that bothered me is that the M16A2 is in the game instead of the M16A1.

2.8/5 for me.
