Cover art variants for Shadow Man on Nintendo 64.
This much-hyped adaptation of Valiant’s Shadowman comic book series was a big deal. The large, open environments are impressive, making full use of the N64’s capabilities, and the game’s dark subject matter was a refreshing change of tone for Nintendo fans at the time.
The visuals don’t hold up today, but Tim Haywood’s score certainly does. It’s a masterpiece of mood and tone. An HD remaster from Night Dive Studios is currently the works for the Nintendo Switch.
