Product Description

Platform: Xbox 360

Product Description

For more than 20 years, the Coalition and the Nationalists fought their bloody war. With war comes technology, and it developed at an astonishing pace. The two armies fought each other with ever more powerful weapons, yet neither side gained the advantage.  Ultimately, the two sides ran out of funds, willpower, and men. As the armies collapsed leaving the country in anarchy, a new power rose.  Sweeping down on the exhausted country, PSI's forces obliterated the remaining armies and began its conquest of the East. Now, the Western territories, mostly unaffected by the civil war, find themselves suddenly defenseless against a new and quickly growing east coast power.

Amazon.com

Bringing dramatic third-person shooter action to huge, steampunk-inspired environments, Damnation for Xbox 360 puts a range of unique weapons in your hands and lets you test the limits of the human body by performing acrobatic stunts to move through vertical levels. Set in an early 20th century world where the Civil War never ended, this game will have you climbing walls, commanding killer vehicles, and seeking out ways to stop industrialists with a thirst for totalitarian power.



Make use of ten distinctive steampunk weapons and take control of any situation. View larger.


Learn to take aim while sliding and climbing in vertical worlds. View larger.





Otherworldly aesthetics add to the imposing nature of your enemies. View larger.
An Alternate History: the Peacemakers and the PSI
You'll follow an ensemble cast including the hero Rourke -- a veteran of the war that ripped the country into pieces and member of a guerilla army called the Peacemakers. These rough fighters are up against the PSI led by William Dean Prescott, a powerful and manipulative man angling to become the dictator of an industrialized empire. As the complicated, multi-faceted story unfolds around Rourke and his cohort, you'll find that he is still looking for his son and fiancee, who went MIA during the war.

The cast of characters includes native healers and seers with unique abilities. And fighters can employ a special spirit vision ability to see enemies through walls or from far away, making it impossible for anyone to stay hidden for long.

Rich, Innovative Vertical Environments
Featuring rugged, detailed environments that have been designed to maximize the impact of vertical space, Damnation follows the action as it moves though deep canyons, up shear cliff faces, into secret caverns, around towering skyscrapers, and toward PSI's factory fortress, which sprawls across the tundra. Each location offers miles of horizontal ground and thousands of vertical feet for players to explore and exploit.

This means you're movement isn't just limited to running, ducking, and driving a burly motorbike. If you want to survive, you'll have to master shooting while in the middle of climbing scaffolding, sliding down ropes, and using vehicles to jump huge chasms. And, of course, the developer's emphasis on vertical movement adds a whole new dimension to the concept of holding the high ground in a firefight, since attacks really can come from just about anywhere.

Rounding out your experience, a combination of dynamic 3D graphics and tough, steampunk aesthetics brings an iconic look and feel to the game's ten distinctive weapons, edgy playable vehicles, and bold industrial structures.

Epic Single-Player Missions and Multiplayer Modes
Damnation offers options to keep play interesting, from campaigning on your own through a series of levels that each offer up to three hours of playing time to competing with friends in four distinct multiplayer modes and support for up to eight players on each map. Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, King of the Hill, and Capture the Flag each offer distinct possibilities for you and your friends to battle each other and compete for superiority.

2.0 out of 5 stars Damnation...is what this game deserves. June 14, 2009
By Pa4d
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
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. It's sad becasue this game had a lot going for it. Giant steam-powered motor cycles, platforming/parkour elements, giant steam-powered motor cycles, a ruthlessly steampunk art deco, and of course, giant steam-powered motor cycles. On paper, all of these elements sound to make one heck of a shooter. However, Damnation does the impossible and falls completely flat on it's overhyped face.

For starters, the story doesn't make a lick of sence. It approaches the player like we're supposed to know the basic story and all of the characters and their ambitions without even playing it. Like I said, I didn't follow Damnation through the hype train, so if something was exlpained in an article or video, then I guess I didn't here it, but it still won't earn any points in my book. I mean, I didn't follow the first Gears of War on the hype train either, but I still understood the basic story just fine. And that plot was bananas! The charcters range from eye-rollingly cliche(mainly the lead protagonist) to painfully annoying (mainly everyone). For a game that looks like it's all about the story and narritive, it all feels like an after thought.

Before I go on, let me say this. Developers. You want to make a steam-punk video game? Great! But before you do, watch "Steamboy" or just about any movie from Hayao Miyazaki.

1.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Awful June 28, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Might possibly be the worst game I've ever played in twenty+ years of gaming. One of the first things you'll noticed is how repetitive this game is. Animations, voice acting, and game play are like a single CD set on repeat. In addition, the aiming and weapons (especially the machine gun) are near useless. The most annoying part of this game are the elevator rides. Do I really need to sit dead still in silence and watch and my character goes up for what seems like forever? This game drags on forever not only because they make you take never ending bike rides, but due to the fact you never have any clue where you are going.

In summation, if you want to become massively frustrated with poor AI intelligence, poor gameplay, and like having no idea where you are going this game is for you. Otherwise stay away from this game, as I honestly could not find anything fun about this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game, ignore the bad reviews! November 28, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an awsome game despite what I have been reading around the net. I have almost beaten the game on the hardcore setting and, though the game can get a little repetitive, it is in no way a bad game.

Once you get used to the controls, they are fluid and responsive. The settings are varied and the graphics are good but not great.
The gameplay is awsome and this is the game that got me to play something other then COD MW2 for a change.

Though there is no built in cover system, you still can take cover and whatnot, but it requires you to choose the location and lean down or back, just like the old days when we actually played games, instead of letting them play themselves (like Assasins creed and Gears).

I got this for $20 new at my local game store and am very happy that I did. Give it a try with an open mind and you won't be dissapointed, unless you are just looking for flashy graphics. This is gameplay at its finest! You get co-op and Vs. multiplayer, online or splitscreen, for a steal! Get this game and show a friend how good a badly reviewed game can be!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not just a name, also a descriptor! July 28, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
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.

With hope in my heart that the reviews were wrong, I bought a copy of Damnation.

They are not.

On paper Damnation could be a great game. It seeks to marry Gears of War style cover based third-person shooting with Tomb Raider's platforming. I am pretty sure a good game could have come out of the Damnation design document, but ham filled voice work, stiff control, some of the worst AI in recent memory and weak visuals drag this game down to the depths of hell.

While most of these aspects can be chalked up to a low budget, the art failing is probably the area that is saddest to me because the cool steampunk syle art is completely lost in the low resolution mess that ended up on the screen.

The control works, but never feels fluid or natural, and the button placement is more than a bit awkward. To make matters worse the control gets complicated by the developers seeming to be 100% unwilling to use context sensitivity to stream line their control scheme.
