Shadow Warrior tells the offbeat tale of Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun Lo Wang as he is ordered to acquire a legendary blade of limitless power by his deceitful employer. Betrayed and left for dead, Lo Wang learns of the blade’s connection to ancient gods from another realm preparing to push our world to the brink of destruction. Now the reluctant hero must become legend through a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit to uncover the truth behind the demonic invasion and banish evil back into the darkness.
Shadow Warrior is a bold reimagining of the classic 3D Realms’ shooter from independent developer Flying Wild Hog (Hard Reset) starring the legendary and quick-witted warrior Lo Wang. Combine the brute force of overwhelming firepower with the elegant precision of a katana to annihilate the merciless armies of the shadow realm in an exhilarating and visually stunning transformation of the classic first-person shooter.

FWH have ticked all the boxes: good humor, lots of gore, old school level design, secrets to find, visceral gameplay - it's all here. My only gripe is that the game could be optimized better and some low res textures here and there. I look forward to anything else from these developers.

Flying wild hog did Hard Reset, which was fantastic. Now they brought back Lo Wang and it is even better. It is a shooter that has everything I love about FPS.
Must buy. Good Job FWH!!!

As stated, this is a pretty and pleasant reboot. Of course the franchise had to grow up, but unlike his retarded brother Duke Nukem, Shadow Warrior matured well with all the grace you would expect of a child with such a 3D Realms pedigree. There is throwbacks to the original, almost too many if you ask me, but it can stand well on its own even if you know nothing of the original.read more The main character is entirely different, the plot (as little there ever was) is, too, and you'll find a plethora of new mechanics and features. The action is always fast paced, all powers and weapons have their use and right to be, you can carry ALL of them, not just two, and the scenery is breathtaking at times, even if the engine isn't too powerful. Sadly you won't do much exploring, but secrets areabundant still, and I didn't care too much about the upgrades system that all games nowdays must have. All in all, it's a very good game that will certainly please FPS fans young and old.
