😎I've never finished it but I played the original SHADOWMAN first on the N64 followed by the DREAMCAST then years later the PC version (from STEAM or GOG I cannot recall) of course, each version had some minor improved visuals but here I am again this time playing the recently released REMASTERED version on PC. It runs great and though still incredibly dated it's the best it's ever looked. I like the atmosphere and it's somewhat a guilty pleasure game for me like NIGHTMARE CREATURES etc. Here's a couple grabs I took just now.

I think I have the DC release of this but never actually tried to play it LOL! Are they 3D platform action type games or ?


It is listed as single player Action Adventure. It is a 3rd person 3D environment some platforming elements, I guess something like Tomb Raider but with dark gothic themes, probably more comparable to something like Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver which is another example of a great one if you are into these type of games. I played the N64 followed by Dreamcast which was definitely my favorite until this updated PC version came along.

I've heard of the Legacy of Kain games but haven't played them either. It sounds like something I would likely enjoy so I guess I need to check it out on my DC sometime soon. Thanks for your blog post reminding me about it.

I played this on N64 at release. It was fun and I recently considered picking up the DC version. A remaster sounds interesting.

Also, the Legacy of Kain is a great series but the original is a 2D game, while the rest are 3D in the vein of the original Tomb Raider. Soul Reaver is the high water mark in that series.
