About
20 March 2015
  • Summary: Imagine, if you will, if Super Metroid and Metal Gear Solid got together and had a baby. The result would be Shadow Complex. It is a game of upgrades, exploration, crazy conspiracies, boss battles, and more all in an isolated military complex.
  • Pros: Impressive graphics, Near perfect gameplay, Excellent replay value, Great reward/experience system
  • Cons: Story/characters only so-so, Needs better boss fights, Ending sneaks up on you

  • Conclusion: Shadow Complex is a fun, yet involving game. The action is well paced, there’s plenty of differing challenges, and the story will keep you hooked whether you’re a card fan or not. Epic has taken a break from Gears and taken on a long forgotten genre, and done it well.

  • Conclusion: I felt the difficulty at the beginning was good, but as you gained strength your opponents did not really keep up with you. In the end could run full a room of bad guys without any thought. Overall, a good game with pretty solid controls. And it is now my favorite Xbox Arcade game.
