About

1997 classic Shadow Warrior is a genuine specimen of a Doom-like first-person shooters craze that took place in the 90s. Coming from the developer of Duke Nukem, the game uses the same slightly modified engine and uses 3D voxels instead 2D pixels. Master Zilla, head of the Zilla Enterprise is planning to conquer Japan using his minions from the “dark side”. At this point, Zilla Enterprises gained control over every major industry in the country. You play as Lo Wang, a bodyguard for Zilla Enterprises, that suddenly realises the dark nature of the company he is working for and leaves it behind. But Master Zilla is not letting go that easily. Gameplay wise Shadow Warrior did no changes to Duke’s formulae: you roam three-dimensional levels, killing enemies and solving basic puzzles. Lo Wang can use Japanese-themed weapons such as katanas and shurikens, as well as traditional for the genre firearms: UZIs and etc. This is a slightly remastered version of the classic.

For me, someone who was born in the Year when the Game came out, it really isn't the "true" anymore, but I still think it's amazingly good, for your 19 Years it's still a Game that you can well buy for a small Prize. Thanks to Devolver for getting the Game off the Index. ;)

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Game: A Classic First-person shooter that has been reissued, which makes playing Even better. You Play your way through many different Areas where you have to find Keys to advance to the End Boss. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Single Player: You play through numerous Levels that are very well thought out and contain a lot of funny EasterEggs and Secrets. There are also Secret Level that you can only reach if you find a certain Exit. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Multiplayer: I Haven't tested because you can't use Multiplayer without external Programs. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Graphics: Something has already happened since the Original, but it still remains very close to the Original. You can now play it without any Problems on a Resolution of 1920x1080 and the Mouse control works Tadellos. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Music: Simply top the Soundtrack is with one of the best there is. In keeping with each Level a good Song you can already say that way. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Control: Plays very well with Mouse and Keyboard, suitable for fast but slow First-person shooter fans. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Pro/Contra: + Graphics style very well taken + High Resolution and Wide screen + Mouse control very good----------------------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------------Verdict: One of the best First-person shooters I've ever played. The Level Setup is just awesome, the Opponents are well posted and Acting not plump. I can only recommend anyone if Duke Nukem 3D Megaton Edition/Shadow Warrior Bundle Is on Offer to buy the Package. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Summarized: Single Players: 10/10 Graphic: 10/10 Music: 9/10 Control: 10/10-------------------------------------------------------------------- --------------------------------Game: 10/10
