Shadow Man Remastered Reviews
I loved nearly every second of Shadow Man; its levels were fun to explore and the visuals looked quite stunning for a remaster! Despite the easy combat, backtracking and acceptable voice acting, Shadow Man was still a blast to go through! If you like old-school games that make you explore levels and find collectibles, this’ll for sure be something you’d really like!
If you've played it before, you will already know if you want to play it again or not. But if you're new to Shadow Man, give it a go, as a visit to Deadside is one worth taking.
Shadow Man returns with an interesting update of the first game, adapted to the new times and adding all the original content discarded. The control of the character has been significantly retouched so that the generational clash is not so abrupt, as well as new visual improvements achieving an excellent result. The level design is magnificent and the playable scheme stands out for differentiating itself from other games of the same style.

It's not easy to go back in time to games like Shadow Man, but this remaster is a welcome one.

Shadow Man: Remastered is an alluring and eccentric game, especially for the time it was released. But it’s a cadaver of the late 90s. A timepiece that shows its age. Its dark, poetic writing is beautiful and entertaining but can also be ambiguous and misleading.
If you can ignore the fact that this is a twenty-two year old game, then you’ll have a great time with Shadow Man Remastered. There’s a lot to like in this game, namely the fantastic level design, creepy setting, and pseudo-metroidvania progression system. Sure, it looks and feels a bit janky for 2021 standards, but I’m happy with what Nightdive has managed to deliver.
