Summary: Shadow Complex captures the essence of Metroidvania games and has some very great upgrades to boot. Excellent sense of progression, interesting plot great exploration and a good combat system. This game is probably the best XBLA game you can get.
Summary: Awesome Metroidvania type of game. One of the most fun games I've played. Game design is excellent. I loved the mix of 2d with 3d. Sometimes the controls can be frustrating though...the character doesn't do what you want him to do.
Summary: While it doesn't have tons of replay value, Shadow Complex is an entertaining diversion if you're looking for something to play. It doesn't particularly innovate in any way, but it's a fun Metroid-style game with modern gadgets and guns.
Summary: this is a great game a nice twist on the classic side scroller and looks amazing. the ending wasn't as good as i hoped sorry had to say it... really wanted a nice classic boss battle or something epic... but you won't be dissapointed with the game when you play and play it again.
Summary: This game is very well made. I'm a very casual gamer but this game hooked me for the few weeks it took me to play through it. In my opinion, this is one of the best games the XBOX 360 has to offer.
Summary: Shadow Complex is of such high quality it's hard to believe that it's a downloadable arcade title. Anyone who's played any of the side-scroller classics, like the oft-mentioned Super Metroid, will feel instantly at home here.

Summary: The game is great and a lot of fun. The other reviews have already gone into great detail about how it pays homage to Metroid and Castlevania so I won't bother. I'll just say the game is fun and entertaining and isn't that what you are looking for in a game?
