    I do not agree with Gamespot's review. It makes this game look like a chunk of software disaster. It really is not. I found this game to be very good. Especially considering the time when it was released. The game offers... Read Full Review

    And he asked Him, 'What is Thy Name?' And He replied, 'My name is Legion, for We Are Many!'

    Shadowman has always been a favourite for me, ever since I first tried it. Mike Leroi is Shadowman, protector of Deadside, the place people go to when they die. The game opens with Jack the Ripper, alone and bereft, abou... Read Full Review

    You lose yourself in the after life, the creepiest game I ever played.

    if your looking for a brainless bottom mashing game then this game will disappoint you. this game is designed so that you get sucked into a depressing world of shadows, an afterlife where only hell exists and all soul... Read Full Review

    I keep it in a special place of my videogaming heart.

    Blah, blah, blah. With blahs we did not erect what videogaming means to the world nowadays. You can try and explain a person what playing FF X is all about and you will never be able to describe the full experience. You ... Read Full Review

    Play in a darkened room on a big screen with the volume turned up... I did :)

    I enjoyed this game and will return to it to play again. I was attracted to it because of its dark themes. I'd just played Residental Evil; Codename Veronica & Soul Reaver and was waiting to play Alice so when I got the ... Read Full Review

    beautifly sublime horror

    This game is very non-linear but at the same time you know your direction. The graphics even now in the xbox360 days are good , the story is creepy and pulled me right in with its morbidity, the music is one of the best ... Read Full Review

    Shadow Man

    Even if you're not real keen on the latest comics - or "graphic novels," as the more sophisticated ones bill themselves - it won't take you long to realize that the hero of Acclaim's newest 3D action adventure ... Read Full Review

    If you want an in depth story, interesting characters, atmosphere, and can live with a few problems, Shadow Man rules.

    First off, let me just say that this game has an incredible atmosphere, likeable characters, and a pretty interesting plot. Other than that, everything else just seems to fall short. This game isn't necessarily that... Read Full Review

    Boring

    Gameplay 5 The gameplay is ok. Platforming and gun play in this game can be fun for a while but it gets a little boring after a while. The loading in this game takes a while every time you warp from one level to anothe... Read Full Review
