According to Shinji Mikami, director of Resident Evil 4, Suda 51′s heart was not in the final release of Shadows of the Damned, which he acted as Executive Director of the project. The director went on to say, “It became a completely different game. That was a bit disappointing. I think Suda was unable to create the scenario he’d originally had in his head, and he rewrote the scenario several times. I think his heart was broken. He’s such a unique creator, so it seems to me that he was not quite comfortable with making this game.The game was nothing like Suda had planned, which is rather sad. Mind you, if we’d made it as he originally planned, it probably would have sold even less, but it would have been very unique.”
It is hard to say anything because I’m not one to believe something unless I hear or read it from the main source’s mouth. But if this is true, then wow. If I can say something to Suda 51 then I will tell him that I liked Shadows Of The Damned even if it wasn’t his ideal end product. It still came out good. If there was something you can say to Suda what would you tell him? Out of a lot of game companies out there, his company and he himself are the few that are doing something different, hate to see a guy like this get discouraged from making great games.
