The First Sublime Seven Minutes Of Shadows Of The Damned

The First Sublime Seven Minutes Of Shadows Of The Damned

Shadows of the Damned is a visually rich, quirky, imaginative game about a guy and his demon out to avenge the death of his sweetheart. It’s also about 20 hours of not-even-slightly subtle dick jokes.

You probably think I’m exaggerating.

I bet even if I told you that Garcia Hotspur’s pet demon is called Johnson and transforms into guns with names like Hotboner, you’d still think I was exaggerating. What if I mentioned that the game saves when you come across a one-eyed demon named Willie? Or that the backstory of the first major demon you come across in the game, a guy with a harmonica stuck in his neck, includes a picture book description of his performing oral sex on a woman? Still not enough evidence?

OK, watch this opening for the game and then multiply the innuendo times, I don’t know, infinity.

Despite all of the crotch jokes (I’m sure for some it’s because of them) Shadows of the Damned is shaping up to be a wonderful game, a sort of God Hand, but with guns.


  • I’m about 5 hours in and it is pretty fun. When a game makes me laugh out loud on occasions, it’s doing it’s job pretty well. 🙂

    I have to admit I do feel the aiming is not quite direct enough. Sort of feels like the reticule moves way faster than it should when you push the analogue stick lightly. (yes, I’ve mucked around with the sensitivity!)

    So having said that, still diggin it! 🙂
