Honest Gamers writes: "I'm not exactly sure what happened here. It's a game released by one of the most prolific publishers in the world, and developed by the company that did the excellent Alien vs Predator franchise. Not the same studio of that company, granted, and if we learnt anything from the internal combustion of Ion Storm it's that developers aren't necessarily consistent across studios - isn't that right, John Romero? But this is still slightly strange. ShellShock 2 isn't just a disappointing, aged failure of Daikatana proportions. This is something far beyond. I'm really confused as to how it was deemed worthy of release at all".
