MAin difference (I think) is that Shockwave has a lot more options for interactivity, while flash does have a scripting code, its primarrly for interfaces (aka websites). This is why many games are in Shockwave. Another big difference is the price. Shockwave is twice as much as flash. Not haveing worked extensivlly with Shockwave I cant go further than that, but I do know it is possible to create a good game in flash, espally with the New Flash MX. If you have server space and can afford the Flash server, you can create somthing even more complicated.

Hope this helps
