I think comparing them is not OK, the games were made like 10 years from each other. If having that into account Beast is the more impressive one out of the two, but putting that aside, it's a very different way of depicting things. I happen to like both, graphically, at the same level.
Lionheart may appeal more because it feels "smoother" than Shadow.
