I was too young to appreciate the irony of this: Shadow came out when I had almost given up hope, that the series would ever release a game that’s on par with Mario and co. I owned a GameCube back in the day and (literally) played it to death. Well, not quite. One of my siblings put in two discs at once and broke it. But anywho, I was very satisfied with the console, but Shadow just wasn't fun.
