Final Breakdown


Not the best 3D Third Person game ever, but certainly not the worst. Shadowman is a fairly fun game to play with a strong storyline, but unfortunately there is not enough adventure elements and too much simplified combat sequences to really satisfy the most adventurous gamer.


Easily one of the best looking 3D Third Person games around with its dark, creepy, and spookish dark graphics. The engine handles most situations fairly well and the character models are excellent. Only problem is some clipping and slightly misaligned textures.

Sound and Music:

Yet again, Shadowman delivers in the eye and ear candy departments with solid sound effects along with a great soundtrack that gets the player involved into the game.

Multiplayer: N/A

No multiplayer options.

AI and Difficulty:

While not being the easiest game around, the difficulty is alright, but the lack of direction may through some gamers off. The AI of the enemies is decent, but not stellar.

Controls and Interface:

Easy to learn and master, but the sniper mode is useless.


Shadowman is a very solid 3D Third Person adventure action game that should have a rather broad appeal to several gamers around.
