The bar for downloadable games is raised. Imagine if Super Metroid and Tom Clancy had a baby. Does it get much better than that? No.

About this video game


Shadow Complex is a platform-adventure video game developed by Chair Entertainment in association with Epic Games and published by Microsoft Game Studios for Xbox Live Arcade, and is powered by Unreal Engine 3. The game's original script was written by comic book writer and Star Trek novelist Peter David.

The game follows Jason Flemming and his girlfriend Claire, who opts to explore some caverns the two stumble across. When she does not respond to his calls, Jason follows her. He stumbles across a massive underground complex with soldiers and high-end technology. Jason must rescue Claire and discover the plot behind the faction operating the complex.

Shadow Complex's reception has been very positive. It has received and been nominated several Game of the Year and Editor's Choice Awards. Critics praised the gameplay, narrative and graphics, with several reviewers also stating that its 1200MSP price was a bargain. It also broke all sales records for Xbox Live Arcade titles, selling over 200,000 units within the first week of release and as of September 2010, has sold over 516,000 copies.
