Product Description

On first look, Shadow Ops: Red Mercury might look like a military simulation, but it's an intense first-person shooter all the way. The story features covert ops soldier Frank Hayden and his team as they hunt and chase a terrorist group that possesses the deadly weapon red mercury. You'll shoot it out in multiple locations like Syria, France, Russia and more. Red Mercury offers single-player campaign, co-op, and multiplayer game modes. Campaign mode has 24 challenging levels where you'll be prompted to create a profile of Infantry, Ranger, or Green Beret difficulty levels. Med packs and ammunition boxes are dispersed at each level, but the action gets hot, heavy and fast-paced. Enemies use techniques like blind-fire and throwing your grenades back at you so don't expect to get through a level unscathed. But your squad mates are fighters and will support your advancements.

1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THIS GAME June 27, 2004
By Scott
This game is the most overhyped game in history. The graphics and gameplay is almost identical to the first Medal of Honor game. The load times between levels are horrible and the AI of the enemy and your teammates is like Forest Gump. I can't say enough bad things about this game.
I bought this game thinking it should be in the same league as Rainbow Six 3...... not even close. This game is flat out terrible.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very fun ride! July 7, 2004
By A Customer
I think you folks are too picky about the small stuff, this game is great.Yes, the load times are long, and the frame rate suffers once in awhile, but the music is great, the levels, locations and the weapons are well crafted, and the story is fun! I also though that the movielike cutscenes moved the plot along quite well, definitely giving it more of a movielike feel.
Reminds me a bit of Blackhawk Down meets The Peacemaker...
When actually playing the game, I thought it was a real rush!
I personally liked it more than Rainbox Six Three. I think it deserves much better than it's gotten in the reviews so far.
If you are lookng for a more action based FPS game I suggest giving this one a try, it's a while until Halo 2 comes out, this is definitely keeping my attention until then.

5.0 out of 5 stars What's the big deal !? July 6, 2004
This game may not be the best thing that ever happened to xbox, but it's certainly worth owning. I just got it the other day and so far I am quite satisfied with it. It has excellent graphics and sound. It's also a First-Person Shooter. I just can't figure out what these other reviewers hate about it so much. The AI isn't that bad, you're teammates do kill some people. And, for the record, it has GREAT!! multiplayer. I might not would pay $50 for it but if you have $30 or $35 bucks that you want to spend on a fun army game, I would strongly consider this.

1.0 out of 5 stars You're joking...right July 4, 2004
This game was so unbelievably bad, I don't know where to start. The graphics were pretty good but the missions were just horrible. If you're thinking about buying this game, think again. It isn't even worth renting.

1.0 out of 5 stars From A Dissapointed Gamer December 3, 2009
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased this game just a few days ago. The beginning was great and so was the start up. However when you begin actual gameplay your experience goes downhill. The graphics make it look like it took Atari every bit of 3 days to put together, and as far as the AI goes it was shockingly poor. There where several times in this game where the enemy will shoot at you from accross the street despite the fact that your allies are standing right next to him. It seems like the Enimy AI cant even see the Allied AI at points. I found multuple cases where they would stand next to each other and not do anything. As far as the weapons go they are horribly represented. Your character can barely hit the broad side of a barn with his rifle and the sidearm you use (which resembles a cross between a baretta 9mm. and a desert eagle) takes almost a half of your magazine to stop one person! It also seems as though your character is holding the pistol sideways instead of straight!! I usually never leave bad reviews but I was just so shocked at how poorly this game was made that I am taking it back to the store today! If you think this was a good game you might want a take a better look at the cover because chances are you are mistaking this for another game. Over all I believe this is one of the worst games I have ever put in my Xbox. (And I have played my fair share of bad games)

4.0 out of 5 stars War is Hell, So's this Game at Times September 18, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Whatever my expectations were of this game, they were completely thrown in my face as I got something else. Shadow Ops is not your typical FPS, which is just the way I like it. Shadow Ops takes you and places you in some of the most hellish combat zones a console game can take you.

While Halo is probably more intense, you're more focused on surviving in Shadow Ops meaning your attention is almost always focused on just making it. In the urban combat levels there are quite literally a dozen things, noises, explosions and misc elements going about to distract you from keeping an eye on your surroundings.

I must admit, the story is almost laughable had I not read the Red Mercury novel back in the 1990s. You are Frank Hayden, a Delta Operator that looks, sounds and acts just like Frank Castle aka the Punisher, which is just plain weird. There is a romance twist and it rather lame if not annoying at times; just ignore it.

The controls are fair, nothing special or too complicated. The leaning function makes cover and concealment much easier and realistic compared to most games. Shadow Ops really stresses cover/concealment and alertness almost to the extreme. To survive even the first level on the easiest setting, you have to watch literally every nook and cranny less some tango will appear out of nowhere and cheap-shot ya or pull a Forrest Gump and nail you in the real.

The musical score is absolutely incredible and with surround sound, the music and sounds will emerse you into the most hellish combat zones the XBox can offer. I get a huge kick out of hearing bullets literally whizz by my head or hearing teammates yell from behind. Watching the making of special features, it is absolutely amazing how they got the sounds to work.
