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.

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

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.

I have played a lot of Kuso (Garbage) games in the past, and I can in fact tolerate a lot of them, and try to give them a chance. And I do believe some games just get completely unfair treatment from the reviewers and this game seemed to be getting a lot of bad reviews from many websites, so I gave this one a try.

My goodness where do I begin.....

The control. The control is not bad. It is CHEAP. You move around like you are playing some really old PS2 game, and the whole aiming....I. CAN. NOT. AIM. May I ask why??? Even if I did aim at the target correctly, EVERY FRIGGIN GUN IS USELESS!!!!!!! So, there is this gun that appears to be a machine gun. IS IT A TOY GUN??? IT CERTAINLY SHOOTS LIKE ONE?!?! And DOES IT EVER HIT THE TARGET???? And I can't even tell if I am actually giving any kind of damage to the enemy or not, it's kind of like Resident Evil: Raccoon City, I can't tell if I am seriously hitting them.

And the voice acting....my goodness do they just read or something?

And I have no idea what is up with the story. What's going on? Why does he say that? Why does she say that? Why does this guy appear all of a sudden? When did I get here? Why did I get here? Who are you talking about?? What ARE YOU talking about??!?!?!?!?!!

it just makes me wonder, did the developers even test this game when they made this? Did they think it was ok like this? I mean, the characters move like they have some kind of issues (Or I should say they move like PS2 or old PS1 characters) and the whole combat is not even fun to begin with.

Can I recommend this game? OF COURSE NOT!!!! There are so many better alternatives out there, and why should anyone seriously waste their life time on this? Because certainly, I would NOT want to.

1.4 out of 10.

Pre-Release Review
Out of 408 games at the time of writing this, I can still proudly call this the worst purchase I've made on Steam to this day. I bought Damnation on release day due to hype, and learned a very valuable lesson -- ok, I didn't, I've still bought trash since. A few other titles have put up a hard fight to dethrone Damnation as worst game I've bought on Steam, but Damnation fought them off and still sits proudly as King on a throne of garbage.

Addition: Plenty of people have gone into what's wrong with the game, so my review doesn't need to repeat after everyone else. The point of my review is to emphasize how much I regretted the purchase and how much it disappointed me -- so badly that the day of the Steam review system launching (1648 days after buying Damnation), the very first thing I thought to do was find this particular game in my list to give it the biggest thumbs down I could.
