If you're unfamiliar with the games, Rocket Knight is a classic 2D side-scroller from Konami that hit the Xbox 360 as an updated arcade title back in 2010. The game stars an opossum named Sparkster who must save his people from the threat of an enemy wolf army.

In Shadows of the Damned, your put in the shoes of a demon hunter who must take on the literal armies of hell in order to save his love. Helping you is a former demon that can turn into a variety of different weapons as you head into combat, solve puzzles and more.

  • Dang, I wish I hadn't sold Shadows of the Damned now.
  • Yay more games
  • Shadows of the Damned was hugely underrated, it's a fantastic gem from industry vets who worked on the best resident evil games and suda 51, buy a copy and stick with it as it gets really good past the initial stages.
  • Does anyone even care about backward compatibility??  I don't see PS4 owners even being interested in it.
