Shadows of the Damned (Xbox 360)

Manufacturer's Description

Shadows of the Damned is an all-new psychological action thriller game from iconic Japanese developers including executive director Suda51 (director of No More Heroes), creative producer Shinji Mikami (director of Resident Evil) and music composer Akira Yamaoka (sound director of Silent Hill).

Heavily influenced by the Grindhouse style including projects from Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriquez, Shadows of the Damned presents a unique vision of hell taking gamers on a twisted journey through a demented underworld where death and destruction are around every corner.

Shadows of the Damned follows a demon hunter named Garcia Hotspur deep into a hyper-demented re-imagining of hell where he must rescue the love of his life by defeating the armies of darkness with the power of the light. Shadows of the Damned delivers shocking and unique gameplay experiences that include over-the-top action, grandiose boss battles, demented puzzles, grotesque enemies, heart-pounding moments and psychotic imagery.

Working his way through the City of the Damned to get his love back, Garcia is aided by Johnson a former demon with the ability to transform into an array of vicious weapons, Garcia will once again take on the mantel of “demon hunter” and rip apart the demented forces of the underworld to protect what he loves most.

Throughout the game players must utilize the power of the light to fight the army of the dark in unique light versus darkness gameplay that will forever change the way gamers perceive puzzles, combat, and action.

Brace yourself for one hell of a trip to the city of the damned.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun but flawed title. 27 Jun. 2011
By Z
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Shadows of the damned is a strange title. It is heavily inspired by cult horror comedy movies and it shows through. If you are a fan of movies like 'The Evil Dead' then no doubt you will enjoy the atmosphere and humour. How much you enjoy the game will probably depend on your liking for that type of genre mixed with if you have enjoyed the unusual titles from Suda before (Killer 7, No More Heroes).

Stylistically the game is fantastic, a wonderfully over the top and cool world. The graphics are good but nothing to write home about. The humour and story are very much up to taste. There is a lot of juvenile humour, gratuitous nudity and violence so if that isn't your thing then perhaps it's not the game for you.

The problems for the game come in the amount of content and some gameplay problems. The gameplay is okay but really if you played Resident Evil 4 then you pretty much know what you are getting. Although the aiming doesn't feel quite as tight as that game. However it features the same mix of good scenes and bosses.

At around 10hours the game is of a quite good length however there is no multiplayer, no co-op, no new game plus and no chapter select. So unless you like replaying games on harder difficulties you may find yourself feeling a little short changed.

If you like stylized games, Horror comedy, the unusal grasshopper manufacture products and doing multiple playthroughs then you will likely enjoy SotD greatly. If not then well perhaps it isn't the game for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sharp shooter fun which falls short on occasion 21 July 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If survival horror is your bag then Shadows of the Damned is not for you. This is pure, manic, unashamedly grotesque gunplay with shout outs to horror staples from all over the world. With visual references to works such as Cannibal Holocaust, it's not for the light of heart or stomach. If, however, you love everything Hellbound and don't mind getting bloodstains on your Sunday best, then you're in for an amusing, splatterific ride.

Shadows of the Damned sees the player loping around the Underworld, with its protagonist in search of his lost love who has been kidnapped by a rather narked Devil who is fed up with losing his demon army to an arrogant, tattoo-riddled lout who has a talking gun. While sympathy is in short supply (she is a vapid, underdeveloped non-entity, he is... an arrogant, tattoo-riddled lout) kicking down the demons' door and giving them Hell makes for a satisfying shooter, although there are no true scares. Mild panic arrises when the player is shrouded in "Darkness" which drains away at one's soul before making for the health bar, but finding sources of light to re-illuminate the area is rarely a challenge. When taking things at a stroll, your companion Johnsson (essentially Wheatley from Portal 2 but in the shape of a floating skull) fills the silence with quips and anecdotes which are, for the most part, mildly entertaining.

It's a shooter. It's a mindless, bloody shooter set in Hell. It has snappy dialogue and some brilliant Boss level set pieces. It doesn't ask for emotional investment, or even an ounce of intelligence. It just asks you pull the trigger and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Garcia Hotspur FTW! 18 Mar. 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Now, firstly, this game DOES have some flaws. Having played through three times (as achievements for difficulty do NOT stack) certain parts of the game drove me mental.
There are certain parts that just seem to go on forever and I also found the story slightly confusing and pointless in places.

BUT what made me give this 5 stars was the art style, the character design, the voice acting and just the amount of fun I had playing it really..

The smutty jokes aren't really as bad as I thought..sometimes I rolled my eyes but It's nothing worse than I see or hear every day on TV or from that friend I don't really like..

SO BUY IT!

Enjoy yourself!

A game I can't really compare to others. You really just have to like it for what it is. It's worth owning.

5.0 out of 5 stars An unknown gem 19 April 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is one of the most unique and entertaining games that I have ever come across. It's action packed from start to finish with many quirky jokes from the programmers and level designers for the keen eye to find. Although your choice of weapons seems very limited at the start of the game (you can get 4), each weapon evolves several times over the course of the game to give bizzare variations of the previous version of the gun. The gameplay itself always gives off new and fun ways to play the different sections of the game and you will never be bored from any limited gameplay like you can in most other games.

There are several references other games and films such as a scene where you re-enact part of the film "Evil Dead". This is sure to give a chuckle to anyone over the age of 18 who are able to appreciate such an amazing game which unfortunately did not get anywhere near as much publicity as it should have.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark, noisy and "caliente"!!!! 17 April 2012
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is pretty simple but is really funny and engaging!!!
You'll love G and Johnson at first sight!
Grafically is not a miracle, but it's better than a lot of bigger titles!
So I recommend it if you would like to spend some time in Hell killing demons and Dark Angels!
