  • Summary: Shadow Warrior is bold reimagining of 3D Realms' cult classic shooter from developer Flying Wild Hog (Hard Reset) and independent game label Devolver Digital (Serious Sam 3: BFE, Hotline Miami, LUFTRAUSERS) for PC and next-gen consoles.

Blending the viciously over-the-top gunplay of its predecessor with the elegant precision of the powerful katana, Shadow Warrior is an imaginative take on the classic arcade-style shooter. Collapse

    Lo Wang returns with a glorious vengeance in Shadow Warrior, in a hilarious, violent experience that no player should miss.

    A wonderful throwback to the 90s shooter, Shadow Warrior is a fine remake that doesn't purport to offer anything more than a rip-roaring blast through hordes of demons. Shadow Warrior is bloody, wilfully daft and rather brilliant.

    I certainly found Shadow Warrior to be a really fun throwback to not only the original game, but ‘90’s FPS titles in general.

    Shadow Warrior offers thoroughly entertaining old-school-action, blood and gore.

    Shadow Warrior is a good example of retro shooter like Serious Sam, Painkiller and Rise of the Triad. Blood, endless shootings, katana and monsters, a solid upgrade and rather large levels, but also repetitiveness and lack of multiplayer.

    Shadow Warrior on Xbox One is neither an example of great graphics, nor a deep shooter. Instead, it is an old-style FPS fun and boisterous, full of explosions and blood but also less trivial than you could expect.

    For or five mindless hours stretched to more than double that. [Issue#154, p.127]

    One of the most fun, funniest, and entertaining games I've played in a very long time.

    If you liked Wolfenstien: The New Order you'll have

    If you liked Wolfenstien: The New Order you'll have a blast playing this game.

    Don't miss out, it costs much less than most games out there, but you'll have more fun than most games out there.

    This is a super fun game. It is loaded with secrets and easter eggs and is just a riot to play. It reminds me a bit of Shadows of the DamnedThis is a super fun game. It is loaded with secrets and easter eggs and is just a riot to play. It reminds me a bit of Shadows of the Damned but has much better controls. If you are looking for an old school shooter that makes you laugh here it is. Nice to get a budget priced game for the xbox one for a change. Very glad I picked this one up. Expand
