"The title in actual fact does demonstrate some pretty unique ideas whilst at the same time offering a multiplayer mode that could make for some interesting times. However, Damnation's release window and classification may be its downfall in the end and comparing Damnation to Gears is pretty much a certainty, when in actual fact it's like comparing an apple to a tomato... Whereas they are both fruits in one sense of the word, but when placed side by side they are entirely different. However, despite the difference, Damnation may still fall victim of that unfair comparison... Saying that, so will most third person shooters this fall."
