Shadow Warrior Classic Redux is a throwback to the franchise roots. Before the reboot, this was the only way to experience the true meaning of Shadow Warrior, reworked to the current generation maintaining the same visuals, controls with fixed sounds and glitches to the current generation. Some may not like this game for how old and dated it is, but is enjoyable. Recommended.
Shadow Warrior Classic Redux can be undisputedly be called a younger brother Duke Nukem. It's a late 90s game at its finest. The main character is sexist, loud and trigger happy. The redux version offers far better graphics than the original release. The game perhaps isn't too young but still looks quite nice for its age. Worth checking out as this is a classic everyone must know.
You are Lo Wang, a Shadow Warrior, which is basically a fancy term for a badass bodyguard. Upon discovering the corruption that his boss, Zilla, is responsible for, Lo Wang decides to turn his back on his former master. This leads Zilla to declare Lo Wang his enemy, and he launches an attack on Wang. So Wang heads of to bring down his Zilla's evil corporation once and for all. Graphics: The classic redux version has enhanced OpenGL graphics, which also extend to the expansions, but also comes with the original Shadow Warrior too. If you aren’t satisfied with either of these versions, you can always try extracting core game files and use them with third party source ports. I would recommend using ProAsm’s source port for Shadow Warrior. There are also some high resolution textures available. Sound: Lo Wang emulates Duke Nukem’s one liners, but they are overall less aggressive, and more comical in tone, with many references to various Asian cultures. Gameplay: The gameplay is quite similar to Duke Nukem 3D and features many of the same core elements, like shooting enemies, finding keys, and making it through many levels, while also being able to stop and interact with objects and even NPCs (non-playable characters) that one happens upon in the game. Shadow Warrior also has driveable vehicles, something that DN3D lacked. Overall: Before you buy this, keep in mind that the original Shadow Warrior is free to play on Steam, and the expansions are both freeware, and readily available for download online. You can also use the aforementioned third party source ports with high resolutions textures to basically give you a pretty good equivalent of this bundle. What you are getting here is a remixed soundtrack and Steam achievements. All that aside, Shadow Warrior is at least a decent classic first person shooter that will probably have you rolling around in laughter when you aren’t deeply engrossed in the action and sheer carnage on offer.
