The thirty-eighth round of Articles of Excellence has been taken out by Polarity with his review of Shadows of the Damned. A game of ups and downs, he describes it as not a title worthy of high demand for those looking for a good horror game, but throws up a couple of decent elements including combat and humour.

 Shadows of the Damned     Score: 3.2/5
 Genre: Action Adventure

 Shadows Of The Damned is not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination.

quote Polarity
If you were to ask me what my favorite movie is, I'd often say Shaun Of The Dead. That movie combines zombies with humor, and said humor is *bleep*ing hilarious! So I'd say that it's about time we got a video game that successfully combines humor with horror. The result is Shadows Of The Damned, a game where you have to face down the undead while your companion/gun tells sex jokes. A little crass, but the timing is often impeccable, making each joke hilarious, and because of that, the game itself is actually quite enjoyable to play through.

Garcia Hotspur has to save his girlfriend from the lord of the underworld, Flemming. The cutscenes that take place serve as either a tour of the underworld, or a vehicle for sex jokes.... the dreaded sex jokes – or so I thought at first. After the likes of Bulletstorm and Ar Tonelico Qoga though, it's.. actually quite a surprise to hear jokes that have consideration for timing and set up. Because of that, Shadows Of The Damned's jokes are funny! That's excellent, because aside from a few books you'll find here and there, the story doesn't go too far beyond the damsel-in-distress scenario.
