5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise June 22, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This will be brief and to the point as I need to get back to playing the game. Longtime gamers capable of intelligent thought will get everything they need to know out of this review. I'm mostly doing this to counter the 2-star review from the guy that can't appreciate a game if it borrows something from another game. News flash: all games nowadays borrow from previous games. It's inevitable. You shouldn't be criticizing a game for borrowing elements from other games, you should be determining whether or not those elements come together in a way that is awesome and intriguing.

Things I've noticed
+ I'm laughing a lot
+ Feels like a Mikami game (Resident Evil 4, God Hand) perfectly blended with a Suda game (Killer 7, No More Heroes)
+ Soundtrack is pretty damn great (done by Akira Yamaoka who you may recognize as the composer for the Silent Hill games)
+ Gunplay feels excellent, headshots are rewarding and encouraged
+ Garcia is agile, doesn't control like a tank
+ Upgrade system is quick and painless, adds just a touch of an RPG feel to the game
+ There's a merchant that allows you to buy ammo, drinks, and weapon upgrades
+ NO REGENERATING HEALTH (thank god)
+ Campy in the best possible way
+ Spot-on voice acting
+ Lots of nice little touches here and there
- Unreal Engine is as bad as it usually is, resulting in lots of texture pop-in, screen-tearing, etc. However, they did the best they could to make this game one of the most colorful Unreal games right up there with Enslaved.
- Sometimes weapon switching isn't as responsive as it should be, but this is likely something to do with the engine or the shoddy d-pad on the 360 controller.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2011 Sleeper Hit of the Year June 22, 2011
By K. Feng
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am only a few hours into the game, but I would like to share my initial impressions so far. I will be updating this review once I am completely finished with the game. Let's get started:

First of all, please note that the "top critics" have all been giving disputing scores on this game (IGN - 7, Gamespot - 8.5, etc). I am pointing this out because so many gamers these days are number slaves. True, there are awful and fantastic games out there, but some games are caught in between; these games are difficult to judge by a number system, and so we need to be careful how to approach them. In the case of Shadows, a number cannot do it justice.

This game is a homage to old school grindfest/horror B movies. It's over-the-top, and it's vulgar. But this game does not bank on these factors alone. The gameplay, atmosphere, and pacing are near perfect in this game. The gameplay resembles RE4, but it is smoother. You are able to dodge enemy attacks quite easily and sprinting out of danger is straightforward. Some reviewers have complaints regarding the shooting. I have no idea where they are coming from because in the options you can change both the AIMING and CAMERA sensitivities. And yes, you have to try to aim for headshots. It is not a game where you spam the gun and expect great results. Please take aim. The atmosphere is another big plus for me. Although the world is quite linear, the overall sense of macabre, dread, and quirkiness flows well in this game. From books read out loud that explains the history of a boss fight you encountered to a cart full of decomposing corpses and dismembered body parts, this game defines itself with a sick style. Additionally, the music in this game is composed by Silent Hill's Yamaoko.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underappreciated, and unashamedly fun November 28, 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I picked this game up on the cheap, and honestly wasn't expecting very much. I am happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised. Shadows of the damned is a well made, highly enjoyable, and extremely raunchy romp through the underworld in pursuit of your girlfriend, Paula. I want to be very clear when I say that this game has raunchy humor. This is not a children's game and the content reflects this. If you dislike constant phallic references than this is definitely not the game for you. For everyone who isn't going to let a little raunch get in the way of their fun, you are in for a treat.

You play as Garcia Hotspur, demon hunter extraordinaire and his trusty wisecracking sidearm Johnson. Garcia's girlfriend, Paula, has been kidnapped by the lord of darkness and Garcia jumps straight into hell to get her back. Garcia and Johnson are wonderful company. Each are fully fleshed out and have distinct, and engaging personalities. I never got tired of hearing their good natured banter as I played through the wonderfully varied levels.

The world of shadows of the damned are beautifully different. Each stage brings something new to the table meaning that you won't be getting bored. From sides scrolling shooters, to weaving through fruit stands avoiding a masked killer, the game does a great job of keeping things fresh. To address the supposed difficulty of a certain level where you fend off waves of monsters, please don't believe the hype. It took my three tries, and that was only so I could see the humorous cutscenes exclusive to dying in those sections.

If you have ever played resident evil four, the combat system is like that except better. Garcia moves pretty well, but I did find myself wishing his roll had a little more distance to it.

Great game with some silly humor that's on the sexist side which may not appeal to some people. Gameplay is like RE4. If you like RE4 or 5 or 6, then you will like this.
