Shadows of the Damned Review

DailyGame
11 October 2011
  • Excerpt: In a nutshell, Shadows of the Damned is a gaming version of Kill Bill, complete with action, blood, comedy and a complete lack of taking itself too seriously. Players assume the role of Garcia Hotspur, a demon hunter who’s only hunting damned souls because their evil leader kidnapped his girlfriend, Paula, and took her to the Underworld.

  • Excerpt: You know, I've always thought that hell is a weird idea. Think about it, what you may consider hell - I could consider being heaven. It's all based on someone's views. Well, Grasshopper Manufacture, the developers of the new action title Shadows of the Damned have a pretty clear view of what they think of hell…they've turned it into one big dick joke. Yes, it's funny, but what do you get when you take away that humor?

Shadows of the Damned Review

  • Conclusion: As a unique tour through Hell, Shadows of the Damned succeeds in many ways. I loved the Tarantino/Rodriguez Grindhouse feel to most of the game and the Evil Dead tribute section is fantastically portrayed. But it's also a game with faults, and while there are certainly highlights throughout, it never quite manages to to separate itself from other games when it comes to the gameplay.
  • Pros: Stylish art direction, Hell-inspired environment, Evil Dead tribute section
  • Cons: Combat becomes repetitive after a while, Too easy, Might unsettle sensitive gamers

Shadows of the Damned / Test

IGN
4 October 2014
  • Excerpt: Ein Spiel wie Shadows of the Damned verteidigt sich bereits durch seine Konzeption gegen negative Kritik, indem es bewusst auf schlechten Geschmack, schale Gags und Gewalt setzt. Jeglicher Versuch, auf die Schwächen in diesem Triumvirat des Trashs hinzuweisen, lässt sich scheinbar mit den Totschlagargumenten "Das muss GENAU so und nicht anders sein!" oder "Das ist halt Grindhouse, Mann" wegbügeln.

  • Conclusion: Peli on Resident Evil 4:n pääsuunnittelija Shinji Mikamin sekä No More Heroesin luoneen Goichi Sudan yhteistyön tulos. Kahden täysin erilaisen ja vahvan pelisuunnittelijan äpärälapsi on kuin jonkinlainen m ...
  • Pros: Absurdi yli kaikkien tyypillisten rajojen

  • Summary: Shadows of the Damned отличная игра с интересным сюжетом, стильным дизайном боссов и трибьютом к фильмам нашего детства, застрявшая глубоко в 2006 году. Чудовищное управление, однообразность, мини-игры, заунывная гамма и пальба по мешкам с кровью – вызывают только одно чувство – бессильную злобу. И тогда просто хочется встать и молча выключить телевизор. Как можно было испоганить такую крутую концепцию?
