Summary: I picked up the game because it was buy tow, get one free and this was the free one I choose based on the premise. And, the premise is cool. Steampunk in the US. Cool. Too bad the game never really delivers on the premise. You do a lot of running, jumping, riding steam cycles and shooting all from an odd rear view of the character. Makes aiming no fun. If you can get it for $4 or less, give it a try. If not, don't bother.
Summary: You may notice that Overdos3 gives a lot of 2's and 3's from our 3 star scale. This is because we are average consumers whom are not given games to play for free, therefore we tend to buy games, DVDs and see movies that we are pretty sure we will like. It is a nice surprise, then, when a windfall trade in of older games from our parents house allows us to try out something we hope would be good, but would never buy with our hard earned cash in a million years.
A Unique And Interesting Premise Is All But Destroyed

Summary: I can most certainly appreciate what new developer Blue Omega was trying to accomplish with their debut title, but once I picked up the controller I was in for a HUGE rude awakening as Damnation has turned out to be one of the very worst games in the 360/PS3 era. I really dug the setting of a steampunk industrialized civil war era but thats ONLY about it as far as positives go. First lets start with the graphics.
Summary: There was a lot of hype surrounding Damnation, but I didn't really pay attention because I was too busy working and waiting gleefully for Batman: Arkam Asylam. But sadly, it got pushed back to Fall, and my local Blockbuster was fresh out of copies of Red Faction: Guerrila and Protoype. So here we are, Damnation. A game I played for about fours until I realised there was something far more interesting and enertaining in the cubbard underneath my kitchen sink.
Summary: I'm basing my review on playing this game on co-op with my son. Damnation is basically a third person shooter game. You start off the game with two friends beside you. Your time is basically spent jumping from roof to roof and to make it even more difficult there is no map that tells you where to go so you're sometimes left wandering around trying to find out where to go next.
Summary: As competitions go, coming second is sometimes the new first. Many popsters have successfully taken over the person that beat them in 'Generic Pop Comp Factor'. Several silver medals earned in the 80s and 90s have been upgraded as one by one the Americans come out as drug cheats. No, second place is not always a bad thing and can lead to a bright future.
Cons: Graphics, level design, voice acting, the game itself
Excerpt: Argumento Nos encontramos en un universo alternativo donde el vapor ha sustituido a la electricidad, a principios del siglo XX y tras la Guerra Civil norteamericana. Nuestro enemigo es Prescott, un rico magnate de la industria que pretende acabar con los dos ejércitos rivales y convertirse en el nuevo amo y señor del mundo ayudado un completo ejército de hombres mecánicos tipo Terminators, con los que comenzará a invadir toda Nueva América.
Pros: modo multijugados bueno
Cons: fallos tecnicos, repeticiones de todo, . . .
Summary: Der neueste Titel von Codemasters scheint auf den ersten Blick an einige erfolgreiche Titel anknüpfen zu wollen, doch ob dies dann auch wirklich gelungen ist, lässt sich in den folgenden Abschnitten herausfinden. --Worum geht es eigentlich?--__ In Damnation werden wir in ein Amerika versetzt, in dem nun schon seit mehreren Jahrzehnten ein verbitterter Krieg herrscht.
Pros: Gute Ansätze
Cons: Scheint noch nicht ganz fertig gewesen zu sein
