Shadows of the Damned

 

Shadows of the Damned would be the single best downloadable game this year, but unfortunately, it's a retail disc. That, more than anything else, is an objective problem with the game; it's easy, short, has virtually nothing in the way of a post-game...

There is absolutely nothing to keep Shadows of the Damned in your system except for achievements; it's made to be played once, then fondly remembered, like the action movies it's based upon. It's still very much worth checking out, but it's impossible...

Shadows of the Damned - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Garcia Hotspur's girlfriend, Paula, has been abducted. Fleming, the Lord of the Underworld, is just a little bit upset with Garcia's line of work – he's a Demon Hunter. Garcia, with the help of Johnson, his demonic shapeshifting firearm/torch, has been...

Though it tries to be different, Shadows of the Damned often comes off as a dated game, suffering from many of the problems that action games of generations past have.

Shadows of the Damned Review

 

Featuring brain-eating baby heads, bleating goat busts, and a redneck demon shopkeeper, Shadows of the Damned is Suda 51's most mainstream offering yet. Sure, this grindhouse-inspired trip through hell is twisted as all get out, even making EA's last...

Shadows is certainly not for everyone. Still, it’s far more accessible and appealing to the mainstream than Grasshopper’s last few games, while remaining super-satisfying for their faithful following. Familiar, but fun gameplay is expertly complemented...

Hell can be a pretty harsh place. Demons, monsters and other creatures of the night infest the horrible place and have every intention of tearing you to shreds. Luckily, In Shadows of the Damned...

Fun game play ; Crazy story ; Funny dialog ; Epic boss fights ; Dynamic and refreshing situations

The aiming takes some getting used to ; The 2D side scrolling levels are clunky ; Chase sequences can be bothersome ; No new game plus

Hell can be a pretty harsh place. Demons, monsters and other creatures of the night infest the horrible place and have every intention of tearing you to shreds. Luckily, In Shadows of the Damned, you’re no ordinary person. You’re Garcia Hotspur, and...

Taking an absinthe-fueled trip to hell.

Last year, Mikami fired a blank with Vanquish—a highly polished shooter wrapped in a dopey, unambitious science-fiction world. Shadows Of The Damned brings out the best of both creators. Suda 51’s warped, pop-culture-obsessed vision and Mikami’s...

Shadows of the Damned doesn't quite hit the heights of either Suda51 or Mikami's history, but as long as you're willing to accept the sometimes vulgar humour there's an experience well worth its weight, and comes to a clever climax finale around the...

Playful and fun puerile entertainment welcomed; Fantastic unique art style; A solid story with a great and clever conclusion

Enemy AI and boss mechanics fall short; Some poor level variants, i.e. 2D shooter levels; Will no doubt offend anyone particularly sensitive

The game’s mixing of ordinary items with unordinary situations comes together well to form a world that is familiar and surreal at the same time. This unique art direction is backed by an impressive engine throwing in thick bloom and lighting effects,...

Shadows of the Damned is fiery and relentless, much like its protagonist, the determined Garcia Hotspur. A demon hunter whose cockiness reminds one of Dante, Hotspur is on a quest to reclaim his precious Paula from the powerful and downright insulting...

The Ugly: “Okay, that was gross.”

By now, fans will know what to expect from a Suda 51 experience. This self proclaimed ?punk rock? developer has become famous for abstract games that buck trends, break all the rules, and lay on heavy helpings of satire and adolescent humor. With...
