Our top picks of the month for Mac and i-OS
The original Shadow Complex was a huge hit when it came out on the Xbox 360 in 2009. Seven years later it’s been remastered, updated and released on the Mac.
You play as Jason Fleming, a hiker who stumbles upon a conspiracy to start a second American civil war by a paramilitary group called The Restoration. You must make use of the many high-tech ‘toys’ of The Restoration to free Jason’s partner through a branching, non-linear story mode.
Aside from upscaling character and environmental graphics (up to 4K resolution), the remaster has improved lighting, new melee moves and new achievements. And if you want to try something other than the main story, there’s a bonus Proving Grounds mode where you can test your mettle with challenges and achievements.
