We talked to the developers, and learned about how potentially awesome Shadow Complex was. We then played Shadow Complex, and learned that it was indeed ridiculously good, the kind of game that makes you expect more out of the XBLA service in the future. Now the game is out today on Xbox Live Arcade, meaning you should go and grab $15 and get yourself some Microsoft Points.
You don’t have to love Super Metroid or Castlevania: Symphony of the Night in order to dig Shadow Complex, but if you do, prepare to see your nostalgia married with current-gen technology. While you’re sitting and pondering this purchase, I’m going to go start another game of Shadow Complex, because it’s just that good.
