Shadow Warrior 2 is the stunning evolution of Flying Wild Hog’s offbeat first-person shooter following the further misadventures of former corporate shogun Lo Wang. Now surviving as a reclusive mercenary on the edge of a corrupted world, the formidable warrior must again wield a devastating combination of guns, blades, magic and wit to strike down the demonic legions overwhelming the world. Battle alongside allies online in four-player co-op or go it alone in spectacular procedurally-generated landscapes to complete daring missions and collect powerful new weapons, armour, and arcane relics of legend.
Five years have passed since Lo Wang shattered the alliance between his deceitful former boss and the ancient gods of the shadow realm. Despite noble intentions, Lo Wang’s efforts to annihilate the darkness corrupted the world, creating a strange and savage new order where humans and demons live side by side.
The once feared warrior now lives in the shifting wildlands outside the reach of his enemies and the neon glow of Zilla’s cybernetic metropolis, scratching out a meager existence as a hired sword for the local Yakuza clans. When a simple mission goes wrong, Lo Wang is drawn into a volatile conflict between a brilliant young scientist, a controversial cult leader, and a terrifying new drug known as Shade. The sharp-tongued hero must once again wield lethal blades, staggering firepower, and archaic magic to purge the world of evil.
Blades and Bullets: Lo Wang delivers his own brand full throttle brutality with an expanded array of over 70 lethal blades and explosive firearms to overcome the demonic opposition. Become a whirlwind of steel and blood with razor sharp katana, short swords, crescent blades, and hand claws or unleash a hellish symphony of ornate firearms to decimate your enemies.
Four Player Co-Op: Battle through the expansive campaign alone or team up as a four-player typhoon of destruction online in campaign co-op mode. Tackle challenging primary missions or thrilling side quests while maintaining your own ninja style with customizable armor, items, and valuable loot from your triumphs.
Procedural Environments: The breach between the human and demon realms created an interdimensional hernia resulting in constant shifts to the world of Shadow Warrior 2. Procedurally generated landscapes and paths bring new twists and turns to once familiar terrain and routine missions.
Brutal Damage System: Choose your weapon based on the situation at hand and then dismantle everything that stands in your path with an advanced gore system. Use precision blade strikes to separate limbs and heads or switch to heavy ordinance and blow a hole right through colossal beasts.
Custom Upgrade System: Upgrade weapons in your arsenal with up to three stones at once to improve performance or augment them with devastating elemental effects. Collect karma, amulets, and armour to enhance Lo Wang’s power and shift his death-dealing artistry into overdrive.
IGN - 8.6 - "Shadow Warrior 2 is an energetic shoot 'n' loot with great melee and ranged combat, co-op, and a pile of dirty jokes".
Attack Of The Fanboy - 4/5 - "Shadow Warrior 2 is a worthy successor to the 2013 reboot. Flying Wild Hog obviously put more work into some of the gameplay systems for the game, while keeping the original's great combat system and charm".
Gamespot - 8/10 - - "Shadow Warrior 2 nails many important aspects of being a first-person action experience".
Set 5 years after the events of the original Shadow Warrior reboot, you take control of master Ninja Wo Lang once again to battle thousands of demons. After the 2013 reboot, Shadow Warrior is back in earnest with fast & fun first-person action. Expect loads of variety from this ultraviolent game, which is slated to have deep leveling systems tied to over 70 weapons that you can choose from. Levels will also be procedurally generated, so replay-ability is likely to be through the roof.
I'm really glad that a game like Shadow Warrior can get a sequel in 2016, especially when it looks to have as many fresh, new ideas as it has currently. We'll be playing this one for a long time to come - especially considering the game's procedurally generated levels!

This game kicks ^$$. If you liked the Shadow Warrior reboot, DOOM 2016 and Borderlands you'll love this game. The only negative thing I have to say about it is that there are WAY too many drops which means too much time spent dealing with upgrades to your weapons in menus. Other than that though this is an extremely fast paced shooter / melee that is an absolute blast to play alone or with friends (unlike borderlands it is still fun alone). Gotta love the Wang. This game is worth its full asking price and if you get it on a sale that is just a bonus. They have also added free DLC already which is awesome. Definitely a developer to support. Also, the game looks great and runs fantastically. Tons of weapons, great gameplay, great developer, great engine, just all around a fantastic package. 8/10
Those who played Shadow Warrior 1 know better than anyone else the story of the game. In the first version we saw that Lo Wang (the main character of the series) was able to destroy the devils and restore peace to Shadow Realm, but paid a price for this task, which also made the world of humans and Shadow Realm combine together. . Second version events occur 5 years after the original version. The combination of the worlds has made humans and demons in one single world together. Lo Wang has also become a mercenary and works for Yakoza groups until one of his simplest things goes to the worst possible. In general, the story of the new version is interesting, but unfortunately it's not as good as the SW1, and it may look a bit inaccurate for those who did not have the previous version and are not aware of its events. Fortunately, the comedy factor of the game story is as good as the first one.
Shadow Warrior 2 is a simple game that by placing all the elements needed for a video game at the acceptable level along with a traditional and, of course, enjoying gameplay, turns it into a game that does not forget its original purpose which is to entertain its audience! In the game, there is no one who could really stands in your way and you're killing and slaughtering so much that you can not even breathe, and that means the ultimate richness of the gameplay. There are so many weapons and tools in the game and i really mean it. Shadow Warrior 2 unlike the previous game is unbelievably wide open and it's not linear at all. The creative developers of the game have come up with something that really has a beautiful and great outcome and by adding important elements of successful role-playing games such as Borderlands, they expanded their gameplay to an RPG, but not a complete role-playing game. It's a very similar, but also it's not at the same time! Shadow Warrior 2 may seem as a simple game and not so important one that anyone can easily pass it, but despite its unique and traditional gameplay, it can be very entertaining. Better than any other game!
The story in this game is hilarious, it is over-the-top crazy. The game has a lot of funny moments, like the protagonist making funny comments to what's happening in-game. The story is funny and nothing else. I think the story could've maybe been a bit more in detailed. The combat is a fast-paced first-person shooter with abilities and bullet sponge enemies. You can get crazy and humorous weapons and upgrades to them, that you pick up. There is a long array of abilities you can get and upgrade to suit your style of play. The bullet spongey enemies in this game it's quite irritating, for you nearly do nothing but shoot, slash and dodge until the enemy dies, and you do this for a long time. This is worth getting because it's funny and a bit challenging, but try it out and see out for yourself.
Shadow Warrior 2 is a direct continuation of the smash hit reboot of well known classic. This game is a marvelous over the top shooter taking place in an oriental setting. The game in fun and fast paced and what is more important quite long for a shooter as finishing this title can last for about 20 hours which is a great length for a single player campaign. Just for this crazy sense of humor, it is worth checking out.
