Shadow Man 2 Second Coming
Usually when a game hits retail before the gaming press it spells trouble, but Shadow Man 2 ain't bad. The basic gameplay is solid --fighting enemies and jumping through puzzle-filled dungeons in the Zelda-adventure mold (you even break open pots to replenish health and ammo, just like Link). The game falls back a little too often on kill-everything-in-the-room and pull-the-lever mechanics, but the choice between playing as Shadow Man or his human form Mike, each with his own powers, is a cool dynamic. A nice array of weapons (everything from voodoo-enchanted spears to machine guns) and the ability to hold one in each hand also keeps combat enjoyable. But a few problems drag Shadow Man back out of the light. The interface definitely needs improvement; equipping weapons in and out of your inventory is such a chore you often just make due with what you have. And despite some surprisingly good voicework, the storyline is never involving enough to drive you on. Cooler character and enemy designs alone would have helped immensely.
