Summary: : Damnation is a sad case of a game sounding awesome but being awful. The idea of a steampunk Tomb Raider -meets- Gears of War game sounds really awesome, but Damnation never delivers on that promise, instead choosing to be a boring, underdeveloped experience that borrows heavily from better games.
Conclusion: It's terrible. Although it should be very cheap in the current day, it's not worth a penny! This game is soul killing. Overall scores: Gameplay: 3/10 (Feels like a chore.) Multiplayer: 4/10 (+1 as it's easy to match up.) Graphics: 1/10 Achievements: 7/10.
Excerpt: There are times when a game gets raked over the coals by reviewers because it's perceived as safe to do so. Maybe it's from a B-list publisher, whose advertising dollars aren't so crucial as to endanger whoever's publishing the review, or maybe the company is infamous for making some truly poor...
Summary: " Damnation " had a lot of promise- a good story & setting, and some nice level design. However, the tight platforming is let down by the horrible shooting and dreadful, overpowered AI. It is also missing many features from more recent games such as a good sense of direction and good teamplay.
Excerpt: As such, the game gets worse reviews than it deserves because it's a safe target, and it becomes a sort of pressure release valve for frustrated reviewers industry-wide. If you've been gaming for a while, you can probably name a good half-dozen titles like this without even trying very hard.
Conclusion: It’s kind of a shame that there’s so much wrong with Damnation , because there were spots where the level design and gameplay mechanics tried to rise above the rest. It sports a lot of platform-style sections, where you have to find your way from Point A to Point B, taking zip lines, climbing up...
Conclusion: It is not just a clever title, as Damnation seems more than willing to live up to its name. The game is glitchy, ugly and just not enough fun at all. Even in co-op you will struggle to glean much enjoyment and I had fun playing Fuzion Frenzy 2 with other people.
