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.

This game reminded me from the very beginning of Painkiller. A game that is unforgettable. And this one is too. The plot of this one is much better than the one of Painkiller and the firefights seem more intense. You have lots of weapons and all upgradable. You have skills that can be upgraded too. You can buy ammunition and learn new Katana moves. You have tons of enemies to bring down and you have so many edgy situations that you have to plan at times you next moves carefully. If there is a remake/reboot of a video game that is modernized optimally and is fun to play, Shadow Warrior is definitely the game you can?t go wrong on. Flying Hog should be proud of its work reimagining an old-school FPS and turning into a satisfying piece of work. The early chapters of the game are a little exciting, but it is more exciting in the middle to later chapters. The middle to later chapters are more difficult, but the upgrade system becomes more fun to use and will make you more effective against the larger numbers and larger sizes of demons. Overall, it's a treat.
The Way of the Wang. Gun and sword play leads to lots of gore. Rabbits humping and a bad ass car. What more can you ask for! Buy this game, play it, and laugh until your sides hurt and then do it again!
You want to play a game again that feels like it could've been released back in 2004? With nice graphics and fluid gameplay? With tons of blood and cartoon'ish gore? With oneliners and humor like back in the day? Why are you still reading this? Buy that game! It's challenging, funny, nice looking, has fun swordplay and fluid gameplay.
Shadow Warrior is a Hack n' Slash game, which combines a good story, a great combat system, and hilarious quotes by Lo Wang (your game character). What's special about this game, is how it's dynamic combat system works. It's quite enjoyable. Your sword can slice your enemies to pieces, depending where you wanna attack them. You will find yourself soon enough using the sword more than the guns in many occasions. You can use though swords, guns and magic. The story is awesome, and it can certainly keep you busy. You fight humans, demons and some other monsters. It has a lot of stages to complete, and there are also some upgrades. Throughout the whole game, there are some really funny quotes by Lo Wang, your game character. There are the infamous "Fortune Cookies" you might have heard in the game, which give you some funny wisdom quotes. The game generally has a lot of funny moments. You're seriously into kill demons and all of a sudden you might find yourself laughing with Lo Wang's quotes. There are 3 modes: Survival - Fight as many as you can. There's a special weapon here you can also use. Ex - You play again from the beginning with the upgrades you had. Heroic - You can't save the game & there are no checkpoints. Only the auto-save can actually save your progress. Overall, Shadow Warrior is a very good game. I think it will keep you satisfied. Personally, I totally recommend it.
Shadow Warrior took me by surprise and completely blew me away. Excellent visuals, amazing & visceral combat. The sword play is the real strong suit in this title, it's probably the best melee has ever been in first person and it's incredibly satisfying to chop enemies into pieces. The guns tend to be left forgotten because of this, but the rest of the arsenal does hold it's own. The story and voice acting is surprisingly good, with large amounts of crude humor. There's also a good tale to be told and they did a good job combining the laughs with the more serious tones. It combines new and old in a great fashion. With skillpoints, weapon upgrades and powers gained by progression yet maintaining the arcade style combat and leveldesign. There are a couple of bossfights, which are pretty middle of the road. The bosses look amazing but they tend to overstay their welcome and the battles drag out for too long. This is especially true on the higher difficulties.
