Micro Review: Shadows of the Damned [2/3]

   Stupid, fleeting, fun.

Shadows of the Damned is fun while it lasts (which is about one play through.)  After that, there isn’t a whole lot left.  It’s not that it’s a bad game, SotD is competent in most regards, it just isn’t very compelling.  The the game play and characters all have potential that Grasshopper fails to follow through on.  It’s as though they got warmed up and decided to call it a day.  The game’s presence is punctuated by events and dialogue that if they had not been delivered in an extremely over exaggerated fashion would have just been boring.  There are high points though they mostly serve to make you wonder what more the game could have been.  One can only hope that there will be a sequel that delivers a more substantive, consistent, experience.

Rating: 2/3
