You've saved me some money; a steam-punk western in the style of gears of war seems good. But judging from the video and this review it just seems awful. cheers

Wow, it took half a review to get into the stuff that actually matters and even then it's not quite satisfactory. Damnation IS a bad game, but you seem to be disliking it for all the wrong reasons (graphics, the absence of the far-from-vital cover-system and whatnot), at least for the most part of it. Of course, in the end opinion is quite a subjective thingy, but I guess that's why one's gotta know the reviewer in order to trust her/his opinion. I must say though that I found there to be too much uninteresting "noise" and not enough content in the review. Which might just be wholly subjective as well.

Also, on a personal note, I presumed the creators just failed, instead of failing on purpose in some vain hopes of some, uhm, "fast buck". And I'm a cynic, so what does that make you, heh.

I actually had the misfortune of renting this game without knowing much about it. I thought it would be a Gears clone set in a steampunkish Wild West, oh how wrong I was.

If you really want to know my thoughts on it, this game deserved at least another year in the development studio, or it should've been given the Old Yeller treatment. Suffice to say, I agree with this reviewer. [http://www.destructoid.com/blogs/DocHaus/damn-this-game-to-hell-or-my-thoughts-on-damnation--135530.phtml] Also, this one.

Guess it was a bad idea to go from Mod to "full-fledged" game; Shame to hear, the first iteration for UT2k4 was quite acceptable.

Well that's unfortunate... I was actually looking forward to this one, what with the cool seeming setting and all. But I suppose concept isn't everything, especially if the game proper is completely broken beyond help.

I was looking forward to this one, and actually rented it too. I switched it off promptly.

I rented this game for an hour and took it back to Blockbuster and they asked if something was wrong with the disk and I just told them it was the disk but the game. It wasn't even worth the hour of game play.

I was curious about this one. It looked like the atmosphere would be cool. Too bad it just plain sucks. I've seen it from anybody who reviews the game- it just plain sucks.

what are you on about? I cant even begin to try and explain what is wrong with your post... everything you have said seems to have come from nowhere... re watch the review and see that his main complaints were the controls, lack of content and bugs.

you must be one of damnation devs.

Maybe you two fail to understand the concept of 'supplement video.' As in, the video is a supplement to the full review, which you can find by clicking the 'Read Full Article' link at the top of the review.

Same here. I watched the video review twice, once to watch it and one to listen to his voice again.
