Shadow Man – Second Opinion

Through its splendid graphics, ominous audio, and its well-scripted and well-acted dialogue, Shadow Man delivers a package that's respectable to the over 18 age group (but not by much). There's still plenty of bloodletting and overt cussing, but the majority of it is done within the creative context of the game and doesn't feel overly abused or cheaply implemented.

Shadow Man

Game Description: In this third-person action-adventure with multiple views and player-controlled camera capabilities, a voodoo priestess has planted a spiritual mask in the chest of hit man Mike Le Roi. Imbued with the mystical powers of a voodoo warrior, he becomes Shadowman. Armed with conventional and black magic weapons, he walks between worlds to wage war against a cabal of undead serial killers and their legions of otherworldly psychos. The arsenal of awesome and varied flesh-wasting weapons includes the .50 Desert Eagle, the Violator, the Shadowgun, the Flambeau, the Calabash, the Asson, and many more.

Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver

Game Description: Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver tells the story of Raziel, one of the undead lieutenants of the vampire lord Kain. Jealous of Raziel's newly evolved wings, Kain tears them apart and casts his former champion into the netherworld. But a powerful entity that dwells in the netherworld has restored Raziel to a semblance of life and has set him on a path of vengeance. After this tantalizing movie introduction, you take control of Raziel in the spectral realm, where your new existence is explained to you. From there you enter the physical plane, ready to begin your quest for power and revenge. Raziel's combat moves are extremely brutal, as you'd expect from a vampire who has returned from the dead. When he finds a spear, Raziel gleefully stabs and slashes before he impales his foe, lifts it off the ground, and feasts on its soul.

Legacy Of Kain: Soul Reaver – Review

Is there life after death? Well, according to fiction and pop-culture, there most certainly is. For as long as we've known, tales of the undead have permeated through our society in the forms of Nosferatu, Dracula, and Tom Cruise.

Aliens Versus Predator

Game Description: Aliens vs. Predator offers 40 levels of terrifying futuristic environments in which you choose to be a Colonial Marine, a Predator, or an Alien. It's "survival of the fittest" for your species, as you make your way through responsive game screens that adjust to your actions. Your environments range from planetscapes to colonial bases, where one wrong move could turn you from hunter to prey.

Aliens Versus Predator – Review

Only in this day and age could a game of such amalgamated ideas like Aliens Versus Predator (AvP) exist. But did the game take its creative direction from the six movies featuring the two sci-fi antagonists, or was it the never-developed screenplay for the vapor film (of the same name) that never materialized? What about the series of Dark Horse comics? Then again, wasn't there already an AvP game for the underachieving Atari Jaguar system?

Aliens Versus Predator – Second Opinion

When I found out Chi was going to review this game, I laughed. Movie licenses have had a history of failing miserably when ported over to video games and with the exception of GoldenEye 007 on the Nintendo 64, I had little reason to believe this trend was going to change.
