Mit der DC-Version des Shadowman kommen wir nun in den Genuss der mit Abstand besten Umsetzung des Spektakels. Verständlicherweise werden Zocker, die sich bereits die N64- oder die PS-Variante zugelegt haben, nun mit neidischen Augen auf die DC-Version schielen.

All in All, Shadow Man is a welcome addition to the Dreamcast's growing library of games that fills a void in the DC Action genre. Easily the best console version of Iguana and Acclaim's collaborative Voodoo vision, fans of dark storytelling and action hounds alike will find a lot to praise here.

En résumé, Shadow Man sur Dreamcast est sans conteste la version se rapprochant le plus de la version PC. Une qualité graphique impressionnante et une ambiance à vous coller la chemise font oublier la maniabilité quelquefois hasardeuse et apprécier un titre qui en vaut vraiment la peine.

Shadow Man is een lekkere third person action adventure op de Dreamcast. De prima mix van puzzels, aktie en platform maken dit een goede game met een creepy sfeer.

Sans modifications apparentes depuis la première version, Shadowman se révèle être le premier véritable (pseudo) jeu d'aventure intéressant sur DC. Ouf... Il était temps.

If you have a trigger finger and a penchant for killing everything that dares to stand in your way Shadow Man will fulfil all your sick and disturbing fantasies… and then some.

L'ambiance est bonne, mais ça ne bouge pas assez, on s'ennuie. Des heures à arpenter des couloirs vides, c'est triste. Reste le scénario pas trop mal ficelé et une réalisation à peu près digne de la Dreamcast. Les capacités de la machine n'ont toutefois pas suffi à ôter le balai phalloïdal que Shadowman semble avoir avalé. Shadowman serait-il condamné à rester dans l'ombre ?

Shadow Man for the Dreamcast is truly the only console version of the game that isn't a chore to play. While many of the elements are subpar in terms of what the platform can easily dish out, Shadow Man does have its merits. If you're one to enjoy a tangible atmosphere replete with intelligent references and somewhat disturbing themes, then this is something you should definitely check out. Granted, of course, that you're OK with ignoring some rather annoying issues.

Shadowman offers a good filler game until the next batch of games hits your local store. Its a far cry from the likes of Resident Evil: Code Veronica or Tomb Raider:The Last Revelation (which are both coming soon). Shadowman isn't the next big thing for Dreamcast, but rent it, or try it at a friends house. See it for yourself. For now it's a decent time killer, but in a few months they will be third person adventure games that blow Shadowman away.
