Originally I had decided to wait for this game to drop in price before I bought it, but on sudden urge to purchase it merely because of composer I pre-ordered the game. Thank goodness I had that urge. Once I started playing the game I didn't stop until it was finished 9 hours later.

The controls in this game are very similar to Resident Evil 5 but the atmosphere and music are quite a lot like the silent hill games. This game seems to pull the best from both games. Though the plot of the game is rather dark the game has quite a lot of entertaining humor in it. My major and only complaint is that the game was lacking in difficulty. I played through on normal and rarely felt challenged. If you happen to be considering this game I highly suggest you try it out. This is easily one the most entertaining releases I've played this year.

General chauvinistic guy rescues the helpless maiden in distress scenario (at first, but I am not spoiling the story). Garcia Hotspur is the demon hunter, along with his "tool" Johnson (a former demon and talking skull that is your "companion"). Both find out that the demons REALLY don't like being shot at. The "Lord of Demons" (aka Flemming...) comes in and kidnaps Paula and forces Garcia to follow him into hell.

The game contains 5 acts (each having 4-6 sub-acts) with multiple sub-bosses and bosses per act.

Gameplay: It's a third person shooter with some melee button mashing in between. I thoroughly enjoyed this game. It is one of the few games that give a good back story to the main characters, but also the bosses as well. Defeating enemies depends on your skill and the gun you chose. You can go for a headshot (quick kill), take out their legs and they drag themselves toward you (ala Black Knight [Monty Python ref.]), or blow their arms off so that they can jump kick you to death. There are multiple points of hilarious dialogue (mostly sexual and low-brow, but still clever). The game also takes a spin-off levels like a paper puppet level ala Raiden.

Graphics: There are reviews saying that the look of this game looks dated, but I don't personally care as long as it's fun and keeps my attention. Each sub-act is a new area with a different look and set-up that reminds me of a few horror flicks. You go through a Spanish city, a bell tower, swamps, etc. and each has a different eerie feel to each one (except the Vegas-like, red-light district).

Sounds: I have to applaud Akira Yamaoka on the various tracks used in the game.

`Shadows of the Damned' is a 3rd person adventure game of moderate length and difficulty. Once you have mastered the somewhat finicky aiming the game provides little to test you- so I suggest you play on the normal or hard difficulty settings to get any sort of challenge. GOOD ADVICE- MAKE SURE YOU UPGRADE THE DENTIST WEAPON!!! On the highest difficulty setting one of the final enemies is very, very difficult to defeat without this weapon sufficiently upgraded.

The game itself is an engaging take on the b-movie horror genre; the rapport between Garcia, our hero, and his sidekick Johnson is often amusing despite being puerile (and in spite of the abundance of double-entendres it is never as offensive as the f-bomb riddled "house of the dead: overkill" which took similar inspiration from grind house cinema).

The game often feels a little too linear and straightforward, and you'll find yourself up against similar enemies, in different yet remarkably familiar environments, completing the same sort of tasks over and over. It seems the developers realized this and later in the game added side-scrolling levels and gallery style shooting levels- they never work quite as well as the main game but they are interesting diversions that spice up the adventure.

The length of the game is around 8 hours and unless you are interested in Trophies/achievements there is little to promote multiple completions. Although it never reaches the lofty heights of an AAA title it is enjoyable throughout and worth checking out.

Shadows of the damned is an odd concoction. Its developed by Grasshopper Manufacture with the talents of Suda 51, Shinji Mikami, and Akira Yamaoka just to name a few. You would think with a team like this that the game would be amazing, but unfortunately its actually a very niche title. You could tell right off the bat it doesn't have mass appeal by its half-hearted storyline filled with crude humor and sexual innuendos. The game pretty much plays like Resident Evil but you're able to move/dodge while shooting.

You'll be playing as Garcia Hotspur an illiterate and I quote "Mexi-Can" demon hunter (stereotypes galore). His partner is "Johnson" an escape demon skull that changes into different weapons for your disposal. Garcia goes to hell to chase down his girlfriend "Paula" who has been abducted by the demon king "Flemming". It gets pretty weird and nonsensical once the story unfolds. Like I mentioned the story is pretty much half-hearted with lots of crude humor and tons of sexual innuendos from everyone.

What I didn't enjoy was some of the games mechanics. First the game is actually pretty short after your first play through. There's only 3 types of guns in the game, a hand gun, machine gun, and shot gun. You do get to upgrade them three times though so its sorta 9 different guns. There's a lot of elements in the game where I thought was completely cheap. For example the game implements darkness which the screen turns black/bluish draining your life away. The only way to get away is to shoot goat heads to light the area up or just get out of the darkness. Way too many of this. The boss battles are way too drawn out, especially when playing on the harder difficulties.
