I loved how this game focuses on heights and constantly has you going vertical, both up and down. It really came off as unique because of this. I liked this game more than I thought I would after reading about how bad it was. It's a very fun third person shooter set in a unique steampunk world. The visuals are middle of the road, but the vistas are nice due to the heights you ascend to throughout the game. The driving segments are probably this game's worst aspect. They all control horrible and you will repeatedly fall of cliffs and miss jumps. You will want them to end much faster than they do. As a shooter however, this game is very competent. There's quite a few glitches in this game, so be warned that you will redo sections of the game a few times. I fell through floors, I glitched through walls, I had a few crashes, but still managed to finish the game fine. It took me about 9 hours, so it has some length to it. There is no replay value at all in this game though so enjoy your first play through as you won't come back for more. The AI is all over the place in this game. Sometimes I was challenged, but other times they kind of just stood around and let me kill them. There are some okay boss fights also but nothing spectacular. The difficulty is a little on the easy side. You get some AI partners in some parts of the game, but they are dumb and you will be doing all the work. Overall, I would say this game is worth playing on sale if you have the patience to deal with the bugs, otherwise you wouldn't be missing much if you passed.
Imagine a mix of Gears of War and Prince of Persia in steampunk setting. Sound great, huh? That what I was expecting from Damnation. It tried. Very hard. But sadly, failed. Probably enjoyed it a little only because of co-op option, so if you are looking for just a game to play with someone, you can try it. Still, you will have more fun seeing how buggy and bad this game is. There will be characters which will be stuck somewhere - like "bad guy" running in front of wall for some reason, or somebody from your team shooting also in wall. It happens but most annoying thing is when you fall down from some really high place, or you will land outside a game territory AND you will spawn in same place... oh god. I can't remember how many times I needed to start over because I was running underground, or landed in some strange place which was marked as my new spawnpoint, where I could move an inch in any direction. If only this stuff could be fixed, it would be much better game. I mean, story is rather dull, nothing special on graphics/music but it was kinda fun running, finding your way, jumping from one place to another. And co-op option is what made it double fun. I wouldn't mind to see someday another game like that but only POLISHED one, where bugs and stuff doesn't annoy you every few minutes. Sadly, I can't recommend this game.
The game is kinda good, for the fan of good classics. The movement system is kinda wooden and there isn't that much flexibility in the movement, but the shooting and aiming compensate for the movement system. There are some hard missions where you have to loot a lot in order to find the right way.. but once you find it and continue to the other missions, on your way to finishing the game you realise it was worth it. The sound system is good imo, the graphics are kinda old for a game released at 2009, they couldve made them a little bit more realistic. You will enjoy the game and get used to it's minuses. Sometimes you might rage cause you shoot an enemy with 2 clips and he is still not dead, and then you die, but yeah that's how the game is made. The mainstory is interesting, the cinematics too,theres nothing else I can add. The other is left in your hands.
Damnation feels very similar to Gears of War in different ways like the cover system. But unlike Gears of War, there are flaws everywhere. The AI is absolutely horrible and they take too many bullets to kill. Even the weakest AI takes a lot of bullets. The graphics are bad with low resolution textures and bad animations. The sounds are horrible. But somehow this game still manages to be fun. The gameplay is very fun, especially in co-op when you're trying to take out bosses. If you really enjoyed games like Gears of War and want a game with a similar system to it, Damnation is the game for you.
It is a game that deserves to be played. The innovative gameplay quite commonly in this genero.Lo that we were doing in Prince of Persia now we can recreate fairly entretenida.Eso if jodido.Talvez shoot it would have been better to use the camera on the shoulder rather than on the head, and leading to less precision.Aunque shoot when mastered through the game is quite fun. The technology and the graphics are typical for the time, although they are neither polentosos or "squares" are quite aceptables.Lo not forgive are the scenes because the game development team had previously developed two films, so you see pathetic and pointless scenes in the game has no explanation. The music is very well done, although very repetitiva.Muchos fighting share the same music, is that these parts are separated by the vertical dominated more and more exploration that encounters with enemies. Innovation is what most stands this juego.Si While the story may seem very generic (a wealthy and powerful that stands as a dictator, and a group of rebels who try to overthrow) the steampunk and western ambience is very uncommon in games. Conclusion: I would buy, perhaps because in addition to a long campaign and small errors such as poor AI, a camera incorrectly programmed and gameplay a little sloppy, has a competitive multiplayer mode coperativo and diversion.No prolonging find another game as this in this generation.
