Damnation - Review

I played the game from start to finish, did not try the multiplayer mode. And yet I don't know what the big fuss is about in the reviews... it's that terrible of a game.
Yeah oke the combat sucks, its basically spray and pray, but it does work.
The graphics is dated but it is a low budget game, not every game can be a AAA title.
The story was rather easy to follow, don't know why people can't follow it.
I really liked the setting, steampunk Idea. Steam trains and railguns and steampunk motorcycles were the best.
There was even some good parkour, scaling buildings and walls.
It was not an amazing game but it was worth playing, if you can get it for a good price.
In the end I still enjoyed it, give it a try if you are open minded and not just use to AAA games. 6/10
nhs s sopunk sett can for will repeat myself again: steam bikes are just cool.
by Ewelinka on Steam
It is, probably, the lowest scored game I have ever played. No brain killings, dozen of bugs, poor AI, poor weapons, bad voice acting… and A LOT of things "stolen" from Gears of War.
After reading multiple reviews I had thought this is the waste of my money but since there was not so many co-op games I decided to get it.
After few playthroughs I can sadly say that all prejudices were true: few clip offs the map, AI is "stupid like Nazis in WW2 movies", and voices… just horrible. All seems like uglier brother of GoW.
BUT there is something in this game which gets you in. Something which makes you play it over again. Ugly duckling for sure but with good partner and some patience it may become a swan.
Steampunk setting gets into you somehow. Wild west style of cogs, blimps and… steam bikes makes experience unique. If you add to shootings some acrobatics in Lara Croft style, you have mix which is not as bad as some write about.
I can forgive this game all the bad because I can have GoW + Tomb Raider + Steampunk.
And I will repeat myself again: steam bikes are just cool.
Ths coaae of the asuals aren't also that mended even from a sale because nothing in this game feels good, nothing.

This game was quite unknown to me and probably is to most people. It's a game released in 2009 by Blue Omega Entertainment and published by a bit more known company, Codemasters. Damnation is an Gears of War style game where you proceed in a linear environment and shoot people from behind cover. You regenerate health to recover and you have your sidekicks whom you also must keep alive. You can carry 3 weapons and different kinda cartridge based weapons is given for you right from the start already.
The start is completely weird, you have this guy in some cave who starts telling a story and soon you're being showcased some war at bridge without really knowing what time it's set in, why they attacked and most importantly.. when your team arrives.. why they arrive, who they are and where the heck they came from? This game doesn't explain alot of the reasons it also doesn't seem that interesting either. Forexample on this bridge scene there ends up being some guy who slaughters armed men with a sword because for some reason after these guys see how their fellow soldiers were just killed in closecombat, instead of them just shooting the sword guy from distance, they decide it's a good idea to confront this guy and go and die :D Alotta stuff in this game really makes no sense.
The game offers platforming, faster running and in general more agile character when compared to GoW. This is also where things start to go wrong. Reason Gears of War gameplay succeeds, is because it focuses on only one aspect, covershooting and all the effort was put on that aspect only. Damnation tries to do alot of things without really excelling on anything. Forexample the platforming feels very clunky and just bad because the controls aren't really suited for that kinda gameplay because they're tanky and yet at the sametime somehow also still overly sensitive. In Tomb Raider when you turn, it doens't instantly turn, in Damnation your character does instantly a 90degree turn and this makes very confusing to control your character on some very narrow space. Gunplay feels also bad because the character's handling just totally doesn't fit for a shooter kinda game because it also was balanced for the platforming style but apparently the movement doesn't really work that well with either gameplay style. So you are left with a goofy game that feels cheaply made.
The game is a very much handhold game. It heavily holds one's hand because if you don't do some act your sidekicks tell you to do (ie. shoot this object), they just do it themselves then. Aka game plays itself. Map design is also very non-challenging because everything is just so obvious and completely linear. Enemy AI isn't also good because sometimes they just stay still looking at you without taking any actions against you, so you'll just have to end their life because you can't stand looking at that brainless enemy.
Now some of the good things.. This runs on Unreal Engine 3 and due to that, it's also very configurable thanks to the .ini files and because it's an UE3 game it also runs pretty well. As a aesthetic style choice, this game had potential kinda because it tried some weird steampunk cowboy thing and from what I know.. that kinda stuff hasn't really been done.
Main menu works pretty well and loading screens are fast. But then you have this audio side of it.. when characters speak, it sounds as if it was said up in the space. Aka there is absolutely no spatialization. The voices totally do not react to environment in anyways (no echo, no reverbation..) they just come and disappear, sounds really odd. I tried to see if that thing would be fixed if you use hardware accelerated audio and so I switched from the .ini file the game to use OpenAL API but that didnt' fix anything. The game still suffered from the horrible environmental audio where the panning/location of sound also was still completely off. Forexample if you stood right next to your sidekick, on leftside of her, the sound would come from the backright instead of from just right. Like wtf?
Visuals aren't also that impressive because as I soon noticed, the overly bloom and postprocess filled world was put for a reason. So that you cannot see the dated look of it. Once you disable those effects from the config, the game ends up looking really barebones. You see all the low res textures that the background environment has and also the actual area where you play doesnt' look that nice either.
Not recommended even from a sale because nothing in this game feels good, nothing.
was expectf only th can't recommend this game. Maybe it could get neutral but we all know you can only say yes/no to games, so it's a "no" from me.
by Furrek on Steam
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. Maybe it could get neutral but we all know you can only say yes/no to games, so it's a "no" from me.

Not too bad, bit short and very buggy game, feels rushed and unfinished but aside from that it's not terrible. The platforming system is pretty good, the gunplay is like Gears of War and there are some parts where you can ride a bike that can drive on walls which is fun. Overall I'd give it a 6/10. Not good, certainly not great but a fun little game to play coop.
Desptive side, movement animation in the action is nicely done, the controls are intuitive, and most of the world you are running around in is kind of beautiful (if you like steampunk). There are some nice puzzle situation
by johannes_franke on Steam
Despite the mostly negative feedback from others, I would recommend this game. It still offers a lot of fun for its price and has some surprises. Granted, the main plot is ridiculous, gameplay is very linear, and the cutscenes and any form of conversation between Rourke and his comrades is carried out with far less attention than you can demand for a game released in 2009 - they all behave like robots. Enemy AI is not a big concern. There might be more auto-save points as well because some failures will send you back just a little too far (no, can't save whenever you want).
But on the positive side, movement animation in the action is nicely done, the controls are intuitive, and most of the world you are running around in is kind of beautiful (if you like steampunk). There are some nice puzzle situations such as aligning elements redirecting a stream of water to create a consistent flow, and some really fun motorcycle rides. That is not so bad after all.

I finished this game a couple of weeks ago, and this game, along with Ubersoldier 2, Wolfschanze 2 (which is not bought through Steam) told me one thing: game review is such a private thing that it differs so much among gamers. This game, except the last boss fighting level (which is a waste of time), is filled with imagination and packed with intensive gameplay. The most significant feature is climbing up to a high altitude, which is so exciting in different sceneries: the giant factory brings a terrifying and mysterious dream in my childhood back, the beautiful city of Terra makes me like touring in an exotic world. The gunshots are blamed by many gamers because it falls short in the feeling of shooting, but it doesn't matter because this games is not about gun fighting, its about scenery and climbing, a feeling of journey in a wonder world. Of course, the last level of boss fight gave me a lesson: never waste time on a boss that is too hard to beat!
Only ever buy ng riding the ♥♥♥♥ing walls in your mother♥♥♥♥in motorbike then turbo-ing up the ceiling through the sky and far beyond the reaches of any true man.

Only ever buy if you are playing co-op. And be prepared for a lot of bugs.
But enjoy ♥♥♥♥ing riding the ♥♥♥♥ing walls in your mother♥♥♥♥in motorbike then turbo-ing up the ceiling through the sky and far beyond the reaches of any true man.
Oh boy, when s game is a true messterpiece and I can recommend it to everyone with the right kind of humor.
by The wrong Joker Meme on Steam
Oh boy, when I saw the intro cinematic I knew this would be a good time. They take the stupid story so serious, but I couldn't stop laughing all the time. I actually thought the game would be total ♥♥♥♥, but other than the gunplay it was pretty decent. The parkour parts were actually kinda fun and the game had some Zelda-like puzzles at some points. The steampunk visuals mostly didn't really look good, they rather looked kinda ridiculous especially with the females and their ♥♥♥♥ popping out from all sides of the outfits. The voice acting also was hilariously bad wich made it even more comical.
This game is a true messterpiece and I can recommend it to everyone with the right kind of humor.
