The boobs are strong with this game. Three gorgeous pairs of boobs, presented to you on a silver platter :D

Had this steampunk first (third) person parkour shooter come out in 2003, it probably would've been a real blast. The parkour moves you have to perform are INSANELY absurd, in a good way. If you're not very comfortable with heights, you might be playing with a pair of sweaty hands or whatever your reaction is, a lot of the time.

This is NOT "Assassin's Creed", pathetically hopping around a few two story house roof tops and dangling on 1st floor balconies BWHAHAHA, ooohhh no... no...

The controls and the camera are not that bad, I've seen far worse, but the movement is definitely made for consoles/controllers, not for mouse and keyboard. The shooting mechanics could be better, and the AI is not very good for today's standards.

Still played it through, on "Hardcore" (Normal) difficulty, because someone decided to jump on the retrarded band wagon, where you have to "unlock" the hard difficulty. I rarely want to do second or more playthroughs.

I also hate that you can't interrupt the obnoxious intro videos, or the credits roll at the end, when I was done trying to roughly estimate how many people worked on this. It didn't sell well and the company closed after this financial desaster.

Online VERSUS and Co-op mode probably won't work, as it requires Gamespy, which has shut down. I have no idea if LAN Co-op does work well, or at all.

The parkour stuff though, this is what the game has going for it, and I am NOT good with heights :D

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.

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.

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.
