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.

This game was a lot of fun. You play as Garcia Hotspur and your a demon hunter with a side kick (your gun) Johnson. With that said, there is a lot of mature content in the game that leads to dick jokes and such. It gets overboard but in a good way in a time when games are taken too much the serious route. Your whole objective is trying to save your girl Paula will gets mutilated throughout the game as you try to save her.

The game has an interesting use like Alan Wake where you can't kill your enemies unless they are out of the darkness. You will use that same tactic but in the game your shooting a blast of light at the enemy and or at a goat's head that will bring lighten up a room. This has to be done throughout the game but as you do, you come across unique and different enemies. There are plenty of enemies that have their own strategy to defeat but in most cases (especially with bosses)they have an obvious weak spot. I would say my only frustration was when Paula is insane and chases you. It is a nice thing that keeps things fresh but she just needs to catch up with you, kiss you, and then your dead. There are different little moments but there is some great scenes and moments that really make the game standout as being creative and unique.

Before I step further into other details, the shooting mechanic can be a bit challenging. It feels a bit floaty which will unnerve some but my time, you get used to it. The weapons you use will become upgradable by having unique abilities and you can use gems to make them more powerful, faster reload speed, and or hold more ammo. You can also use gems to increase your health bar.

The game looks good but in its own style. I would compliment the music.
