In Shadows of the Damned, you play as foul-mouthed demon hunter Garcia Hotspur. His mission is to travel through the Underworld to rescue his girlfriend from the Lord of Demons. With the combination of Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil creator) and Suda 51 (No More Heroes creator), this title definitely offers a wild ride through the Underworld.
Keeping a conventional gameplay style in the form of the third person shooter, Shadows of the Damned brings a few nice touches. The availability to move and shoot is nothing new to the genre, but is done quite nicely to keep a nostalgic feel even including a 180 degree turn. The camera can be quite odd sometimes, especially with the change of perspective when aiming.
