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.

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.Read more ›
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.
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!
- bad Gears of War clone minus cover system (which the game desperately needs). steampunk? where's all the riveted leather and gears and clocks and stuff? Gears of War from the visuals down the sound of the weapons, plus some banal tomb raider/uncharted jumping from ledge-to-ledge garbage.
- inexcusable end boss battle without checkpoints. only way to get through it (even on easy) is luck. not skill. you have to scurry up in full vulnerable view of a dude firing missiles at you randomly. no way to time it, no skill, you just make it up alive RANDOMLY. You have an AI partner that could help distract the end boss by FIRING AT HIM OR DOING SOMETHING!!! But no, she's useless. I suppose you could have a human co-op partner here, but why should this be REQUIRED to do that just to get through this stage? It wasn't required in any other part of the game... This game is absolute garbage.
