Shadows of the Damned - Xbox 360 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Reveling in its grotesque aesthetic, Shadows of the Damned exists as an unapologetic celebration of infantile humor, cult grindhouse films, and the unmatched credentials of its creators. As a collaborative effort between the manic creativity of Suda 51...

Shadows of the Damned follows the quest of demon hunter Garcia Hotspur as he travels Hell, attempting to save his love, Paula. Paula was killed and kidnapped by the lord of Hell, Flemming in a flurry of sexual innuendo. This all happens before you even...

Graphics are good ; Characters are over the top and they grow on you fairly easily ; Music is very nice ; It takes a minute, but it gets fun

So many penis jokes... One eyed willy? SERIOUSLY

Shadows of the Damned is not for the li'l ones or even a good number of the big ones. If you do give it a chance though you will probably enjoy it.

Shadows of the Damned is a story about a demon hunter who battles to save his beloved from a fate of never-ending death at the hands of the most powerful demon in the Underworld. Garcia Hotspur, the protagonist in Shadows of the Damned, is a likable...

Shadows of the Damned, despite some interesting ideas and intense action, falls victim to poor game design in the second half of the experience. Frustrating turret levels, going back to the 2D well one too many times, and puzzles that literally halt...

It's mature sexual content (and immature sexual humor) that's woven together with gore-splattered gameplay set to a unique and refreshing sense of style."

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.

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...

You can bitch and moan about Electronic Arts' business practices all you like (really, Battlefield 3 will be worth it, kids), but once in a while, the company does make a genuinely good business decision. Case in point – it immediately leaped on board...

As for the gameplay itself, it’s very much inspired by Resident Evil. You can roam around freely using Johnson as a torch, trying to keep the darkness at bay (if you’re surrounded by it, it can easily kill you). At any time, you can switch to your gun,...

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...
