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.
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 Reborn – A bold new vision of Shadow Warrior elegantly blends classic first-person shooter gameplay with thrilling action, inventive combat, and a contemporary retelling of the hilarious legend of Lo Wang.
Elegant Swordplay – Unsheathe your legendary katana to slice enemies apart with precisely targeted swings or unleash fluid combos and special attacks to cut down hordes of enemies with one swift pass through the enraged hordes.
Upgradeable Arsenal – Utilize every gun in your formidable armory – from stylish revolvers and quad barrel shotguns to explosive-tipped crossbow bolts and laser-guided rocket launchers. Each weapon offers several unique upgrades to increase power, speed, and add devastating alternative firing options.
Mystical Powers – Call upon mystical powers to protect yourself and paralyze your enemies or use their own severed heads and still-beating hearts to bring them to their knees.

Shadow Warrior is unabashedly fun. Putting you in the shoes of a swearing, constantly bantering assassin. Once you meet and get paired with a demon named Hoji, the game takes you on a wild, fast paced ride of demon killing. Very reminiscent of old school shooters, Shadow Warrior mixes corridor sequences and arena fights. Your arsenal ranges from a katana to a rocket launcher without any weapons feeling redundant. While the story itself isn't anything to write home about, the game knows that and doesn't try to pretend anything else. It's absolutely self-aware and pushes the zaniness as far as it can go
You have to enjoy a game , that's what are really games made for, if you sit down and just admire the visual effects and destructiveness of the game, blend the storyline with the twists and you don't even know what to say , it's definitely not the measure for a good and enjoyable game. Shadow Warrior has challenged this issue and the players like me who have experienced the game are likely to agree with me! but unfortunately after a few levels, the charm of the game decreases, and the killing continues with repetitive environments until the game ends. Although there are some bossed in the game that are good for diversity, but not enough! Also, although the game is "linear", sometimes you is lost in the environment. The lack of a guide system in the game is greatly felt. Apparently, developers wanted to make you explore the environments, which were almost successful! Experiencing this game is recommended to all fans of the first person shooters .
Shadow Warrior (2013) is a remake from the 1997 game with the same name: Shadow Warrior. Both games are FPS fast paced combining melee and shooter with a funny plot in a chinese theme game. The protagonist of the game is a random guy that meets a random chinese demon and with that, the fun and action begins in this game. If you like goofy funny games combined with action, this game is for you. Recommended.
Ok, this game is just insane. The whole thing is a self aware laughfest, and also, a love letter to the gamers of the 80' and 90's era. This in itself would be enough for most, but apart from that, Shadow warrior is a really well made game! First of all, it's a solid action game, with really good melee fighting as well. Using the Katana is essential in dispatching the horde of demons constantly on you. Also, there are rpg elements, that are actually well implemented. Every upgrade is useful, yet they don't make you overpowered. Or, at least fighting against an army of hellspawn remains a challenge. So, i recommend buying this game, and don't recommend hurting the bunnies in it ;)
When Shadow Warrior Classic was released, people everywhere were thrilled with the new kind of game that was created. This game is 10x more amazing than that. The graphics are very amazing (though you might need to run it on low quality depending on your computer). The controls are simple and the storyline is very unique. You'll find yourself having hours of fun slashing down enemies in this gory but fun game!
