What do you get when you combine the talents of Suda 51 (No More Heroes) and Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil)? The answer is Shadows of the Damned, a twisted third-person shooter for consoles that takes place in the underworld.
The protagonist of the game is Garcia Hotspur, a badass demon hunter clad in a leather jacket and armed with an array of unusual weapons – like a handgun called “Big Boner” (I kid you not). Garcia’s hot girlfriend Paula was kidnapped by demons from hell, so now he has to travel to the City of the Damned and rescue her from the clutches of the demon king Fleming.
Shadows of the Damned features a punk-rock theme with dark and macabre environments, outlandish humor and creative monster designs. The soundtrack by the British gothic punk band, the Damned, and video game composer Akira Yamaoka (Silent Hill) also contributes to the thrilling atmosphere of the game.
