''Among the less traveled paths of PAX, Damnation leaned against a wall in the corner of the Codemasters booth with its hat tipped down and fingers on the triggers. Unfortunately, many people seemed to be overlooking this stylish shooter when we stopped by, which is a real shame. Damnation looks like it could be shaping up to be something very interesting in a genre full of rather similar games.
In this alternate universe western, you take the role of the gunslinger who has taken it upon himself and his two cohorts to take on a rich industrialist bent on taking advantage of the Civil War. Described by the developers as a "vertical shooter," the game doesn't focus solely on gunplay, but rather the landscape and how that can shape a battle.''
