I would have to say the best way to go about this is a Role
Player. Something like Fable
for the Xbox would do nicely. Why? For those of us who haven't played
Fable, every choice that you make reflects the
outcome. Shadow fans would love that: seeing instant results
of their actions. It's more real. However, I believe there have to
be puzzles and something like the Jedi mind trick for the game to
actually work... But that's just me.
I'd probably pick "action plus some puzzle
solving", because if you're not busting up tough clues
and riddles, you're not the mastermind that The Shadow really is.
Yeah, he's an infallible marksman, but still
he's the master of everything, not just artillery.
game should be Action/adventure. Devil
may Cry and Psi-Ops
kinda deals with the use of two weapons, which is a nice touch. It's
kinda hard to tell just which [of the two video games] the 1994 movie
comes close to, but I'd have to say it's more Psi-Ops [with its] guns
and telepathic powers. The game could be a mix
of guns, swords and powers. Who knows, maybe the game would
have outfits based on the toys.
The stealth action genre, more specifically
is perfect for The Shadow; the use of darkness
and shadows [in that game] is perfect. The only addition that
would be necessary would be the psychic powers, which could be represented
quite well in that format.
