Product Description

Product Description

Cartridge and hard plastic collector case with reprint of original case artwork - NO MANUAL - Front label is fully in tact. Game cartridge is in good condition but may show normal signs of age such as minor scratches, discoloration, or debris in creases. All games are tested before being put into our inventory.

Shadow Man, based on the Acclaim Comics series of the same name, lurks onto the Nintendo 64 platform with an unusually massive, in-depth, and graphically intense experience for fans of creepier gaming experiences. This single-player, third-person 3-D action adventure packs a well-scripted story, massive nonlinear levels, intuitive player controls, and wonderfully horrific graphics.

Players assume the role of Shadow Man, an immortal voodoo warrior who wanders the Deadside, a mix of grand gothic architecture melded into a fleshy landscape. Seems that some of the otherworldly forces are determined to bring about Armageddon up on Earth and, naturally, it's up to Shadow Man to hunt down the undead culprits. The majority of the game focuses on negotiating physical challenges, such as jumping over ravines and swimming through caverns, defeating a variety of enemies, activating buttons and levers that allow access to new areas, and then repeating the process in a new level. Redundant? Not at all. Well-designed levels encourage players to keep driving through the game, and enemies inherently surprise the player when least expected. This is a long game, requiring up to 70 hours to complete, but those prepared for an intense gaming experience will enjoy the journey. --Eric Twelker


  • A truly massive game requiring 70 hours to complete
  • Engrossing mystery storyline
  • Well-designed, nonlinear levels
  • Player occasionally gets stuck behind objects or in walls
  • Enemy artificial intelligence sometimes glitchy

5.0 out of 5 stars AN ADULT ADVENTURE THAT'S NOT FOR CHILDREN! November 16, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It's about time that the good ol' folks at Nintendo allowedadults to have fun for a change. See you later Mario, Yoshi, andPrincess's time to enter the world of real adult gaming. Definitely a cerebral game, Shadow Man will have you thinking and thinking and thinking for a long time. Beautiful graphics, great sound effects, hours of real speech, loads of puzzles, and some truly horrendous and disgusting enemies. How they manage to pack so much stuff into a cartridge is a small miracle. In any case, this game will captivate you for hours. As someone else mentioned, the learning curve on this is quite steep, so I recommend getting a hint book (trust me, you will need one). The overall atmosphere of the game is very tense, spooky, and nightmarish. Enemies jumping out of nowhere will surprise and scare you. This is not a game to be played in the dark on a stormy night. It's like playing a horror movie. On a final note, the box disclaimer is accurate: THIS GAME IS NOT FOR CHILDREN! The settings are disturbing, there is extreme violence and torture, some characters (the serial killers) are downright sadistic in their attempts to kill you, there is adult language, and the themes of death and voodoo rituals occur throughout the game. It's nice to see an intelligent game marketed to adults. Let's hope more follow.

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars is now selling it ........ & everything, say you pay ..... And let's say you are so good & it only takes you 40 hours to finish the game. That's a buck an hour on the game. Try taking a buck to a local arcade & see how long you can last! Besides, I really don't think anyone of you could finish it in 40 hours. I bought it 2 weeks ago & I have been on it for about 2 hours a day. I am only about 80% done. What I am really trying to say is " IT'S A GREAT DEAL! " It is the content of the game that stirred my interest. I fell in love with it the first time I turned it on. Graphics were excellent. The monsters & creatures were creative but realistic. Sounds were so real in some area you will think you are in it. Nintendo should have more of these type of game to capture audience like me. I am getting really sick & tired of those Super Mario & Banjo kiddie game. Acclaim, who is the creator of this game, should also take full credit of this. I will even throw in this if you choose to buy the game. Go to [...] & get the tips & cheats on this game. This would make your life a lot easier. This guy nicknamed marshmellow wrote about 60 pages of tips on this game. Give it a try. You won't regret it. For about $30.00, you've got nothing to lose. You will thank me for recommending this to you! Enjoy! Edwin

Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Okay, first off for the parents, I wouldn't recommend letting your kids play this game. It is really disturbing, violent, and for more mature audiences.
Graphics: Pretty close to flawless. The mouth motion doesn't match up to what the characters are really saying. Gameplay graphics are the best part. Though, they can get pretty intense sometimes.
Overall Graphics Grade: A-
Play Control: It's sometimes hard to control the main character and it'll take you a few minutes to get used to the controls.
Overall Play Control Grade: B
Game Design: The storyline is that of a B-movie. The worlds are very well created and structured. Although, you'd probably get scared to death playing it. I told my father about the game and he was scared just hearing about it.
Overall Game Design Grade: A+
Sound: You'll play it and say, "Did I hear what I think I heard?" The sound is very realistic, from all the dialogue, gunfire, and ceatures bursting into a pool of gore, you'd think you were watching a movie.
Overall Sound Grade: A+
General Comments: Excellent game. Very disturbing and not at all for pre-teens. Be prepared for nightmares.
ESRB Rating: M containing animated violence and animated blood & gore. As I've already said, the game is very gory with much disenbowlment (excuse the spelling) and shooting. The game also contains fairly strong language.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very graphic game not to be played in the dark. November 3, 1999
By A Customer
Durability: 4.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 3.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is very good. The storyline is original, the gameplay is fantastic, and it teaches you a little about the voodoo religon. The only drawback is that it has a very steep learning curve to it, and younger kids probably should not come near it because they will probably have nightmares for a week.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE OF MY PERSONAL FAVORITE GAMES EVER January 8, 2000
By A Customer
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm 13, what i consider to be a mature gamer for 13, and my parents are well aware of the content of this game, my father sitting down with me and watching the opening cutscene (which involves a character suicide). You play as either Mike LeRoi or Shadowman, depending if you are in liveside (real world) or deadside (hell). You do become shadowman in liveside later, but whatever... the vista engine is incredible eliminating distance fog, and even in 4MB enhanced High-Res mode, it runs smooth as silk. Character models are well put together and i just thought after the QB club titles, Turok and WWF Attitude, if there is one thing acclaim can do it is GRAPHICS. High res, smooth framerates, pile this on with hours of ingame speech and 0ver 40 cutscenes, plus 50 weapons and secrets, you will wonder how did they get this into a 32 meg cart. The sound quality is good and most of the time the voice acting is top notch (just wait for jaunty). A great change of pace from the usual baby titles on 64. BUY THIS GAME!

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth 4$
Nice personalized note on receipt. Game is not great but definitely could have been. I like the idea I'll play it once in a while... not bad for five bucks.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic game that is far superior on Dreamcast and PC.
You start to notice what late 90's games in 3D were going for: open level design with large levels to explore. Banjo Kazooie, Donkey Kong 64, and Jet Force Gemini did it. Read more
