Summary: Damnation is a good game that's getting a lot of undeserved criticism. I read a lot of the bad reviews that have come out about this game but decided to give it a try because I like the concept of steam punk mixed with alternate west history. I've been playing this game for a few days now and just don't understand why this game is getting such negative reviews.
Summary: I bit the bullet and bought this game and its not as bad as anyone is saying it is and i mean c'mon are you compairing it to big budget realease's or something? ive played for a bit and seen none of the glitches or floating bodies that ign have complained about. and while the graphics are not all that great they sure as hell aint crappy.
Conclusion: this game is really good, so good that i played it through about 4 times, the climbing is good fun especially when using it to conquer puzzles, the shooting is a bit on the dodgy side, but its unique and its better than games like socom, you don't have to have a 2 metre thumb to aim so i'm not complaining. the puzzles i mentioned are really clever and involve use of the environment at times.
Conclusion: Now if you are a hardcore gamer you probably know by now that this game is hated by pretty much everyone. But for casual gamers and open minded people I think this game is amazing. I am easily pleased yes. But I like most games everyone else doesn't. So if you're thinking of picking this up, don't let reviewers and all that scare you off. Just go for it.
