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.

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!
Shadow Warrior is a great reboot of a classic Shadow Warrior. Of course the games differ but the most important thing is that the killing is so amazing. You have so many weapons to choose from that you can't build your own character. You can be a ninja using only a sword or you can use shotgun with a rifle. The possibilities are infinite. The game takes place in China and the world looks beatiful. There are some levels in forests, some in chinese villages and some in docks. There's always a variety. Many enemies will put you to the test. Every enemy is different and you have to prepare a tactic for him. The music is great. It's a mix of some chinese tracks and a modern techno/dubstep music. Even though I thought I wouldn't like this mix, I LOVED IT. It pumps you for action. Now we come to a difficulty level. Don't do like I did and don't play the game on Heroic. It's almost impossible to do this. But I can show off with my achievement and 100% completion of the game. Overall the game is great. I really really recommend it to everyone. And the sequel is even better!
I liked the original so I thought why not, I can buy this game. I tried it and the graphics are awesome, but it's not a remake at all! I think this is more of a continuing than remake :( We want remake, Devolver! ;) Thanks for the game anyway. It's a masterpiece. Also comes with Visera Cleanup Detail: Shadow Warrior, which is fun if you have 3 friends that are as crazy as you :D
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.
