Well, thread title says it all. I just finished my first run-through in Hardcore difficulty and I have to take off my hat to the fin gents at Chair. This is an AMAZING game.

If you have an X360, you MUST get this. It's old-school meets Unreal Engine plus a ****tonne of awesomesauce.

So awesome, it hurts.


:D

I can't seem to find this "Shadow Couples" game on Xbox live.

Is this one of this girlfriend simulators?

I love those.

I got it when it was up for 800 points and started playing it until I beat it. Very addicting and awesome game. I look forward to Shadow Complex 2.

I love this game. It takes some cues from Metroid. Anyway, I finished it but admittedly missed some of the "secrets" you can find on the huge map, I think I got 98% of it though.

Well worth it.

Same here, I would like to play it but I effectively do not have a 360. I could rip my 360 away from my girl's grubby fingers and hook it back up to the main TV and play the game, but... wow, that sounds like a lot of effort.

I hope they port it to the new Games for Windows Games on Demand service, but I guess considering Epic Games' attitude lately that is a one in a million shot.

I played the demo and I personally didn't enjoy it. The map and 2D feel of it is the only thing it shares with Metroid. I hate people comparing this crap to Metroid.

Finished it a while back. Awesome old school action. I loved it. One day I'll see if I can do it in hardcore.

Same here. Best spent MS points ever.
Didn't know there's a sequel coming up. :D


And yeah, I fudged the thread title. SO SUE ME!

Bought it when it was on sale but I've only played maybe 1 hour but that was enough for me to know it will be a classic. It so reminds me of 16-Bit classics like Flashback and Metroid for the Super Nintendo. Awesome game.

About half way through it now and man I don't want it to end. Hell, I have stopped my MW2 binge so I can play this more. So ****ING awesome. The best exclusive game released on XBox 360 last year period.

Yeah so true. Shadow Complex is so much better. Who in their right mind would compare that Metroid crap to Shadow Complex?

Got my new (hand me down) X360 online and bought this game as soon as I could. It's awesome. Metriod action all the way. Controls take some getting use to but I am loving it.

Aiming at crap in the background is terrible. That terrible Matt Hazard game on XBLA and PSN is about as fun as this game is. When I play a 2D game, I want a 2D game.... not some horse**** going on in the background I have to shoot.

Yeah aiming to the background is annoying but the game is fun.
