    Even after all those years with lack of interest Shadow Warrior Redux works. Despite its outdated graphics it's entertaining shooter of pureblood genre and bitter humour. It's a blast from the past when developers had balls.

    An audiovisually elaborated remake of the brutal shooter from the late 90's. Duke Nukem's pal is going well, bringing mad and red action. [Issue#232]

    Being able to play it on modern rigs without problems just helps you to realise how **** things have went in the shooters department.

    This game is not the best fps (Duke Nukem and Doom are obviously better at every aspect), but it's still a blast to play.

    Shadow Warrior takes the open-ended interactivity that made Duke Nukem 3D so fun and expands/improves upon it. Almost everything in ShadowShadow Warrior takes the open-ended interactivity that made Duke Nukem 3D so fun and expands/improves upon it. Almost everything in Shadow Warrior is breakable and the addition of drivable vehicles, truly 3D pickups and "room-over-room" levels add to the immersive nature of the game. Unfortunately the game relies on some really racist caricatures of Japanese people and culture that is more offensive than funny. I'm not an easily offended individual and personally loathe all forms of political correctness but I don't see why the developers couldn't have used this as an opportunity to create a character that positively portrays Japanese individuals. Additionally, the graphics were already dated in 1997 (keep in mind this was the same year that the truly 3D Goldeneye64, Quake II, Hexen II, Turok and Dark Forces II: Jedi night were released) and may turn off newcomers to this title. All in all a fun romp down memory lane but not the a classic like Doom or Duke. Expand

    Basically just an upgraded version of the original game. Better graphics, audio, and the inclusion of both expansion packs.

If you're a fan of the original, or liked Duke 3D and are looking for something similar, you should probably get this game. Expand
