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

Manufacturer's Description

And he asked him: What is thy name? And he answered, saying, "My name is Legion: For we are many ... It emerges from the depths of each individual being. A charged luminescence that represents the life force. Every human being's eternal core: The soul. At death, this ethereal presence exists outside the body and can thrive there and can do so forever ... unless ... it awakens among the dead ... unless ... it has come to the Deadside. And then that soul is tortured. And then that soul feels the deep writhing pain of the hell-bound immortal coil. It feels the suffering of all eternity and lives a horror known only to those who have endured the greatest evil. This Deadside burden is all there is and all there ever will be ... unless ... the soul can return to the corporeal ... unless ... they may awaken in Liveside. And then the world will know their pain. And lo, beware, of the terror unleashed when the gates swing wide to their hardened malevolence. For it is then that Revelation comes to pass and The Five will rise and lead the many. For they seek to unburden their souls with a blight that will darken the sun and scar the earth with real and utter death ... unless ... one is chosen to stand against them ... unless ... he who is chosen delivers God's wrath. And then the universe will echo with the cries of the damned. For his sacrifice will destroy them all."

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an amazing game 13 Sept. 2013

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is like Soul Reaver, but voodoo instead of vampires. This game is incredibly atmospheric, has a good plot and plays well. This is a 5 star game. Most of the play is pull block/push switch action to collect the maguffins. But there are boss fights and wea[pons to collect, but overwhelmingly this is not short on polish and atmosphere. It should be noted that small children and those of a nervous disposition might want to avoid this - there are dark themes like what you might find in horror, so be warned but otherwise this is an outstanding game, which easily stands the test of time against today's titles. Enjoy.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Shadowman is one of those games that appeals to all you people who have a good, innocent and yet inner twisted mind, if you love films like 'Angel Heart' 'Constantine' and 'Prophecy' you will absolutely love the Dark feel of 'DeadSide' and the strange New Orleans feel to 'LiveSide' aspects of this game, if on the other hand you have little or no imagination whatsoever and you prefer films like 'Speed' 'Gone in Sixty Seconds' and 'Cliffhanger' you should probably play a Grand Theft Auto or a football game instead. This game is huge and contains loads of puzzles and platform jumping, you start off with literally nothing and as you progress deeper into DeadSide (Hell) you obtain more useful weapons and artifacts to help you overcome increasing obsticles on your way, the music and sound effects are all excellent and the Dreamcast version is in my opinion the best version, I absolutely enjoyed playing this game right through to its end and unfortunately even though I now own a PS3 few games have ever come close to pure atmospere and deep involvement as Shadowman. If you have an imagination and are willing to absorb yourself in a game Shadowman will draw you in and will consume your life... A TRULY EPIC GAME.

I love this game, I really enjoyed playing it. It has a superb story line, great locations, horrendous enemies, and a dark sense of humour running thoughout the game. If your a fan of horror you'll love this game, if your not play it anyway. Look of for the play-room section in the Asylum level, it really freaked me out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a Cracker!!!! 5 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
The game is a good adventure and horror game. Better than Tomb Raider and arguably Resident Evil Nemesis and 2 (Not Code Veronica though)
The graphics are ported PS graphics but are way improved and run smoothly.
The game plays great but starts slowly and that can put you off.
Get this game!!!! NOW!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unnaturally Average 23 Nov. 2001
By A Customer
Imagine the scene... Three guys sitting in a cold, badly painted room. Small 14" TV is on, with Dreamcast whirring away beside it. One guy is holding a controller, another is watching the screen with terror and helplessness to help with the noticing of the evil monstrosities that could appear at any moment. The third is sitting with a wad of paper - crying out directions: "Well it says there is one just to the left of where you are." "Well it's not my fault that it is wrong!!" Game is played and eventually completed - mostly during a half hour before school starts, lunch times and an hour after school.
This is an ok game. It has many graphical improvements over the other versions on other platforms. It plays well with decent controls allowing you great freedom of play. It is attractive and is very atmospheric with a very good backing soundtrack (involving many a tangled scream etc.) It has a lot to do, with over a hundred "Dark Souls" to collect. This is not a game you will complete with in your first month of buying it :)
However, it does nothing to make you want to play it. After the first few levels there is not much new to be seen. Sure new levels with nicely detailed scenery and new weapons, but there is not really anything about the game that says: "play me!!"
It becomes very repetitive and annoying when you find yourself searching for hours to find just one extra "Dark Soul" so you can progress.
If you can get hold of a game guide, then there is more fun to be had killing all the minions than there is searching aimlessly for all those "Dark Souls", and if you play with the lights out, with some mates, you can get a few nights of enjoyment out of it. It was a lot more fun to be trying to find things together, as a group all discussing and arguing about where to go and what to do next than it was to play individually.
Buy, get a game guide and play with some friends.
Otherwise avoid...
