  1. Great platforming, shame about the rest.
  2. Blue Omega’s vision is buried under so many layers of clumsy gameplay and painful cinematics that the glimmers of the game that could have been just can’t stem the tide.
  3. 55
    The execution kills it almost instantly the first time you try to take down an enemy.
  4. Some genre indecisiveness and more general poor direction combine to make Damnation far worse than it looks.

    Damnation is an unfinished game, a concept with good ideas and a real sense of scale but terrible implementation in almost every way.
  6. Damnation is not exactly a terrible game. As a shooter, it does the bare minimum required to be considered competent. It's just incredibly mediocre and pointless that it's made me wonder exactly how games like this even get the green light.

    I'm sorry. This game is absolutely terrible. Look at the game description and title cover. I was hoping for a nice sci-fi action game I'm sorry. This game is absolutely terrible. Look at the game description and title cover. I was hoping for a nice sci-fi action game that would keep me occupied for a nice time. But as soon as I popped this game in, I immediately lost interest. Don't get me wrong. The graphics were amazing, and the platforming was incredibly smooth. But that's about it. I'd say the biggest problem this game has is that: It's way too easy to die. The shooting system and CQC(Close Quarter Combat) system are both very unrealistic. And the game itself has too many empty room and obstacles to get lost in. A 3 is a bit generous. But since the graphics and platforming are quite nice. 3/10. Full Review »

    Possibly one of the worst game I have ever played. Repetitive gameplay, boring, uninteresting storyline, terrible dialogues, full of glitches,Possibly one of the worst game I have ever played. Repetitive gameplay, boring, uninteresting storyline, terrible dialogues, full of glitches, lame graphics & sound effects, a game that I will definitely never play again, actually, a complete waste of time and money. I'm trying really hard to find a positive point about the game but I can't, I just can't...The game was so bad that It was the downfall of his company : ''Blue Omega was dismantled on June 26, 2009, due to the commercial failure of Damnation'' this is how bad this game is.
