Shame about that The Shadow game. If bombs like Hudson Hawk, Blues Brothers 2000, and Catwoman could get their awful, awful games onto the market, why couldn't we get something decent out of The Shadow? From the review, it seems like the finished version would have gotten an easy B.

You say that The Shadow plays like a generic, single-player version of Batman Returns, which makes it sound like Batman Returns is multiplayer, which it isn’t. It seems like it should just say it plays like a generic version of Batman Returns.

That Shadow game sounds like fun. I actually like the first 20 minutes or so of the movie, then it kinda goes off the rails after that. The Shadow is one of those properties that needs a theatrical reboot.

Oh wow - I forgot Batman Returns was single player! I will fix that.

The title to that game is driving me crazy. Every time I come to the site now this plays in my head:

Rocky Rodent checked into his room
Only to find Gideon's Bible
Rocky had come, equipped with a gun
To shoot off the legs of his rival


I mean Rocky Racoon’s not a bad song but this is an aggressive earworm.
