Damnation may be the sleeper hit of May; it's not getting a huge amount of press, but you really shouldn't sleep on this bad boy. We've just seen a trailer that shows off the main character's depth of maneuverability, and here's one that showcases the shooting action combined with plenty of diverse gameplay. The weapons are unique and intriguing and the action appears to be both fluid and engaging; all we really need is a solid control mechanic, and Damnation should be a clear-cut winner. The backdrops appear very cool, too, so if you're looking for a title to hold you over until the big ones come out later, Blue Omega's project could be just the ticket.
