What Gamespot Users have to say about Damnation

  • User Rating 5

    Its failure to capitalize on what it does well over anything it performs poorly at is what makes this game suffer.

    Ok..ok..I'll admit that I think the critics got this one right. There is no way in good conscience that I could recommend this game to anyone. There are better ways to waste your time and if you're a ...

    What in Tarnation is this Damnation!

    Rated on June 01, 2009 by Cravenlevay

    What is up with this game? Most of this game is jumping and flipping around. The physics are great but the AI of this game belongs in last place at the Special Olympics. It has bugs not to mention ...

    Damnation, I read a few articles, previews and such and I ended up being interested in it only to find out it was one of the most disappointing games I've ever bought. The graphics are not exception...

    I'd definately recommend Damnation for the worst 10 games list of this year.

    You know, after all the glorious screenshots, trailers and videos I couldn't wait for this game to be finaly released. I got it just in time when it released, and was eager to give it a go. Imagine ...

    The game doesn't offer anything new or fun. It's just a quick mash-up of Gears of War and Prince of Persia.

    The Game It had an interesting idea, which was realized horribly. The graphics were obviously 'stolen' from Gears of War, IMO. I'm not saying it looked bad, in fact, it was great, but the same bloom ...

    Great potential left unused

    It has been a long time since this setting got some attention. The more sad it is, that it seems so rough around the edges, and in between. The controls are really no fun. The aiming is a a pai...

    Damnation may begin as a fun, if generic, shooter, but it soon deteriorates into a boring, derivative trip through hell.

    Rated on July 07, 2009 by dark_being

    One would think that a game that utilizes the amazing bland of real and surreal elements of Steampunk would be as imaginative and as fun as it settings. While there are a lot of cases that prove this ...

    Damnation is a product released way too late to capitalise its strongest features.
