Shadow Blasters

Shadow Blasters

A mediocre action title from defunct developer Sage’s Creation, Shadow Blasters offered little in the way of variety or presentation. It’s worth a look, at least for the half hour it lasts, but those looking for a deeper experience should definitely look elsewhere.
