Shines Over: The Damned from Firenut and Juan-Mod is billed as a first-person horror experience on PlayStation 5. Learn more about it in our Shines Over: The Damned review!

 

Shines Over: The Damned from Firenut and Juan-Mod is billed as a first-person horror experience on PlayStation 5. Other than some forced jump scares that happen exactly at specific spots in each of the game’s five chapters, there’s not much to do in this one. Sure, there are orbs to collect for some trophies – more on these in a bit – but it’s nothing to write home about. You’re expected to play this one from start to finish in one go, which is not going to take long since you’ll easily see the credits roll in less than an hour.

With the game being played from a first-person perspective, you’ll walk with the left analog stick as you look around you with the right analog stick. You can hold R2 to run and jump by pressing the X button. If an enemy grabs you – which will happen a handful of times as you explore Shines Over: The Damned, you’ll need to quickly press the buttons shown on the screen. Hint: The buttons to press will be the L1 and R1 buttons. Be careful about pausing the game since you can’t pause this one. Press the button two times in a row, and you’ll actually quit the game and be sent to the main menu!

Trophy hunters should know that this one, unfortunately, does not have a full trophy list, so there’s no Platinum to aim for. The list is split into 6 Bronze trophies, 4 Silver trophies, and 3 Gold trophies. You’ll have to complete each chapter without dying a single time, dodge all scythes in chapter 4, collect 8 orbs in chapter 3, collect 5 and 10 orbs in chapter 5, and complete the game. Do all this, and you’ll be rewarded with a Gold trophy for collecting all other trophies.

 

Shines Over: The Damned is billed as a first-person horror experience, but it fails on being an actual horror game. Sure, it’s something you can experience on Sony’s console, but you most certainly should avoid doing that. There’s nothing about this one to recommend since not even trophy hunters have something to look forward to because this one does not have a Platinum trophy, and the trophies on the game’s list are annoying at best. Shines Over: The Damned is out on PlayStation 5 with a $14.99 price tag, and it’s a game you should avoid.
