E3 09: Shadow Complex trailer, screens look amazing

Out of all the game announcements so far, I am the most excited about Epic’s XBLA offering Shadow Complex. Looking like a combination of Bionic Commando, Metroid, and Contra, Shadow Complex is an old school side-scroller with gorgeous graphics, fast paced gameplay, and, most important to me, gigantic, jaw-dropping bosses.

Check out the screens in the gallery and the epic trailer above.

With news that this hot-looking game will be released within a few short months, Shadow Complex has officially become my most wanted game of the year so far. Well, besides Uncharted 2 and God of War III. Okay, fine, one of my most wanted games of the year.

What do you think? Does Shadow Complex appeal to you?
