Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Michael LeRoi is the zombie slave of Nettie, a powerful Voodoo priestess . Thanks to Nettie's spell casting, he is also the Shadow Man, a dark and mysterious--if unwilling--hero who protects the people of the mundane world against incursions from Deadside, the land where everyone goes upon death. Michael is not entirely unhappy with this fate. A lifetime of bad personal decisions has left him with a huge karma debt. Now, with the world in danger, he is going to get his chance to pay it off.

Shadow Man is a first-person shooter with a horror twist--instead of an ordinary weapon, you wield the Shadowgun. Your prey is a quintet of demon serial killers who plan to unleash monsters against the living world, called Liveside, ultimately bringing about the destruction of all life on earth. In the course of denying this goal, you fight monsters and collect ammunition and weapon upgrades, prowling Deadside in search of baddies.

As befits a horror game, Shadow Man is dark in tone and explicit in its visuals and language, definitely not an appropriate game for younger players. The program itself is rather unremarkable; from graphics to monsters, everything is engaging but in no way exceptional. One might have hoped that it would at least offer some scares along the way, but these are few and far between. Like most entries into the horror-game genre, this one relies on gore instead of trying to find ways to really make your skin crawl. --Alyx Dellamonica

Product Description

He is coming, walking between worlds, making a trail of evil from Liveside to Deadside. He is coming, skull in one hand, calabash in the other, a voodoo mask in his chest, lines of power in his back. He is coming, stalking monsters in tenements and deserts, subways and swamps, spirit world and real world. Shadow Man is coming. Shadow Man: voodoo disciple and hero, seeker and defender.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game 7 Mar 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The big proviso is the graphics and frames are a bit lacking, and it seems you can find quite a few bugs in the game.
Aside from the above, this is a very good game from the view of gameplay. It makes you feel good each time you increase his power or notch up another symbol on the gates. This has a similar feel to Soul Reaver, and both are pretty entertaining. There is a lot of exploring to do, and keeps you occupied for hours.
An excellent cheap game to own nowadays.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great... 26 Oct 2000
By A Customer
The plot to Shadowman, I must admit, is really quite interesting, and the combining of modern day firepower with ancient voodoo weapons is a touch of genius. The swearing in cut scenes injected a little necessary humour, as well. But, let's face it, the graphics engine for this game is HORRIBLE! Soul Reaver showed us exactly what could be achieved by pushing the playstation to its limits, and then you get this horrible, blocky, pixellated affair. The frame rate in some areas of the game is unbearable, too. Granted, that is probably because the game is massive, but so is Tomb Raider TLR, and Soul Reaver, and look at those games...... Overall, I would say an interesting ( and cheap ) diversion for those who care more about plot and storyline than graphics, but don't expect to pick it up again once you have completed it once.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just a bad version 4 Aug 2008
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I've got this on the Dreamcast and whilst obviously being a tarted up port of the N64 game looks good and runs smoothly,this however is terrible,it jerks around at a random frame rate and the aiming is a gamble as well,the graphics are way worse than I thought as well,I have Soul Reaver,both on DC and PSone,and the PSone version is comparable to the DC one,likewise Alone in the Dark,the DC has 'shadows' the PSone has 'blobs'but most of it is the same,on the whole Shadowman is just a very bad version of quite a good game.
P.S There's a map in the Dreamcast version,there isn't/wasn't one in this and that makes it extremely tricky if/when you get stuck.

4.0 out of 5 stars A dark and brutal gaming experience. 21 Oct 2000
Enter a world that's darker than black and more sinister than Cruela DeVille. It is a hack em up with a difference - it is dripping with atmosphere (not to mention blood and sweat). It is a little frustrating if you back track because you'll find that those dead are now alive, but that doesn't take too much off the game's playability. You will need patience though. Buy it play it. It certainly can't be said that it isn't value for money.
