(Review of Dreamcast version)

Armageddon storylines are so tiresome. I can't stand this excessively dark and dreary crap, especially when no character is sympathetic, captivating, or interesting. I am not a fan of modern art or weird, twisted images, sounds, and music, and this game, despite its blandness, manages to capture that hellish feeling of a world turned upside-down. Imagine playing a game set in the hell of "What Dreams May Come," and you're getting close to this game. Now sprinkle in some voo-doo and you've got yourself a modernist mess of alienation.

This game is so lonely and depressing. All the heart and soul stuff is old hat, and once again slaughter takes center stage with hordes of mindless, dead enemies who require repetitive hits to "kill." Aren't some of them dead already, though?

The levels do not require much strategy (just walk through them), and the horrible full motion video scenes utilize blocky, poorly lit characters and settings. Pass on Shadow Man.
