Game Review:

Many games and videogames alike have come to conversions for new and fresh ideas. Movies like Men in Black, Die Hard, and yes even the cute family of dogs Beethoven all have received videogame translations. Often though, these translations fall flat on their faces in the midst of a great idea. Now game developers have to bring up some new ideas as to where to get game design ideas, the next step was in the direction of a place where many people have found great fantasy escapes from, comic books. From the classic Superman and Spiderman, to the more recent additions such as X-Men and Spawn, all of these comics have one thing in common, they all are fully loaded with action and battling action alike. What the idea of these comics come into the translation of videogames in the form of Shadowman as one of the newest releases from Acclaim. Shadowman, is a 3D Third Person translation of the comic book with gameplay in the same style and manner of the Tomb Raider series.
