SHADOWS OF THE DAMNED is a video game for the XBox360 and PS3 consoles. It follows the story of player character, Garcia Hotspur, as he enters Hell in pursuit of his love, Paula, who has been captured by a demon lord. The game was classified '18' for very strong bloody gore and very strong language.

The strong bloody gore occurs from the start of the game, in the gameplay as well as in some of the cut scenes where, for example, we see a demon tearing its way out of a human corpse which is hanging from a noose. In gameplay, there are large splashes of blood to accompany blows with various weapons, and injuries include decapitations and dismembered limbs. Many of the background settings also feature gory and disfigured corpses. The BBFC's Guidelines at '15' state 'Violence may be strong but should not dwell on the infliction of pain or injuries. The strongest gory images are unlikely to be acceptable'.

The Guidelines at '15' also state 'Aggressive or repeated use of the strongest language is unlikely to be acceptable'. The game includes several uses of very strong language, which are more appropriately classified at '18'. The game also features frequent strong language.

The game also includes crude verbal sex references, particularly during word play. For example, the guns are referred to as 'boners', including the 'hot boner' and the 'big boner'. There is also some sexualised breast nudity.
