Shadow of Destiny (2001)

Platform: PlayStation 2
Purchase Date: 03/11/2001

Time manipulation is powerful but the ramifications are often horrific.

Shadow of Destiny is an adventure game where you control a man named Eike who can manipulate time with to the assistance of a supernatural ally. He is targeted for death and by both experiencing the actual death and changing the past, Eike must find the source of the attack and clean up the after effects of his actions. The game has some truly genius moments, like the inclusion of a parallel timer that shows the progression of the present time while Eike is living in the past. The game's storyline is quite memorable and has many possible endings. The game design is very similar to the new Time Hollow for the Nintendo DS though the main themes found here are much darker in comparison.

LIBRARY STATUS: 5 out of 5
