So, has anyone found all of them? I can't seem to find them. I wish there was a faq about it...

Give me the strength to be who I was and forgive me for who I am today.

I wish I could be more helpful on the concern of the locations of all the trophies, but your out of luck if you want to find all of them. My advice, take your time through each level and try to find them. Hoped that helped.

If someone is willing, I'll write down the locations of the trophies I can find and we can exchange notes...Also, how do I unlock more of the photo gallery naturally? I know there's a cheat, but there's gotta be a different way.

Give me the strength to be who I was and forgive me for who I am today.

Try completing the game in different difficulties. It might work, I'm not sure. I've been after trying to get all gold medals on all the mission, on every difficulty, trying to get all the trophys and pictures, just to see what I can unlock.

I don't think difficulty matters. When you play on hard, the medal you get there is given to you on the other difficulties. I think the collecting all the trophies unlocks things as does boom-booming all the girls, but I'm not sure. I haven't done those yet. So, are you willing to exchange locations of the trophies with me? Maybe if we find them all you can write a faq. I'll try to post my findings on the first stage tomorrow (12/9).

Give me the strength to be who I was and forgive me for who I am today.

I'm not sure. It's been a while since I played it, and I get on the computer once and a while. I don't think I can give exact locations, but I can give hints.

Mission 4: When you have to defend the fort. You'll have to move out from the fort and search around the bodies. They sometimes drop some trophies.

Other missions: At times, they can fall from people you kill. They can be around anywhere, so just take your time in levels and look. Try looking for them on easy, it helps.

As for the medals on difficulties, I've goten all medals on easy, but it didn't fill out the rest.

I'll post some more information soon, I'll pop the game in and I'll help you if I can. Glad to see somewhere out there that plays the game. Thanks.

Please note that I'm playing on hard difficulty, so I'm not sure if the locations change. I highly doubt it though. Also, let me know if the locations are hard to understand.

Mission 1: First Kill

Trophies:
1. Signal Corps Badge - Behind first big tree on left, near the bodies of soldiers.
2. Regular Soldier Star - Dropped by enemy after river mortar attack.
3. Officer's Soldier Star - Same as 2.
4. SRV Pennant - Near first aid kit by river.
5. Signal Corps Badge - Same as 2 (I think by someone during the second wave of attacks)
6. Mao's Little Red Book - After climbing up the path's valley/hill, turn left, next to palm trees ( before checkpoint).
7. Signal Corps Badge - After checkpoint, enemy drop behind rocks to the left.
8. Officer's Soldier Star - At the end of first tunnel that needs to be destroyed.
9. Regular Soldier Star - After blowing the first tunnel, enemy drop near the upper trenches.
10. Mao's Little Red Book - Same as 9.
11. Mao's Little Red Book - After entering 2nd tunnel, past ladder, first alcove on right.
12. Regular Soldier Star - Enemy drop after 2nd tunnel, near machine gun.
13. Regular Soldier Star - Enemy drop, enemy on AA Gun in base.
14. Regular Soldier Star -Enemy drop, by AA gun and fuel depot.
15. PAVN Pennant - After entering enemy base, follow path to left and up hill, next to first aid kit.

Bonus Intel:
After 15, go down hill through opening to the left of the fallen tree, enemy drop to the right.

The enemy drops are located for the most part where the enemy started. However, trophy 14 I wrote the location of where his body was. Not sure where he starts.

Give me the strength to be who I was and forgive me for who I am today.

Oh, and about the medals, medals earned on the higher difficulties will automatically be rewarded on the lower difficulties. For example, getting a bronze on hard gets you bronze on medium and easy, but getting a bronze on medium will only get you a bronze on easy and not on hard.

Give me the strength to be who I was and forgive me for who I am today.

Mission 2: Hearts and Minds

Trophies:
1. PAVN Flag - In cave behind start point.
2. Regular Soldier Star - Village ambush, enemy drop in front of machine gun.

Oh, and to unlock the photos in the profile view, you've got to boom-boom all the girls.

Give me the strength to be who I was and forgive me for who I am today.

Reception[edit]

ShellShock: Nam '67 received "mixed" reviews on all platforms according to the review aggregation website Metacritic.[16][17][18]

IGN found the game to have 'many faults' and criticised the presentation of war as tasteless.[11]Eurogamer also noted that the PlayStation 2 version was "a trivial representation of a bloody conflict for our personal entertainment" but thought that "when it hits the spot it's briefly thrilling" and admired the creators' ambition in at least attempting to make a game which was not bland and sanitised.[4]
