    For its exuberance, intelligence, and absolute batshit over-the-top nonsense, Shadow Warrior 2 is the reason I play shooters.

    Shadow Warrior 2 is a beautiful, fast-paced shooter with a ton of guns. There's an RPG-like layer of additional skills and extensive weapon customization, a great cast of characters, and nothing to get in the way of pure reckless shooting. And when you're done with the campaign, there's four difficulty levels, New Game+, and co-op play waiting for you.

    Shadow Warrior 2 a is brilliant bundle of slice and dicing fun, and being that I’m someone who was massively unimpressed by Flying Wild Hog’s debut title Hard Reset, I gotta give credit to them for improving so drastically over just a few years.

    A worthy successor to the 2013 reboot. Flying Wild Hog obviously put more work into some of the gameplay systems for the game, while keeping the original's great combat system and charm. If you're up for some bloody fast-paced first person combat, this ultimate power trip won't disappoint.

    Shadow Warrior 2 is a fantastic game that meshes what I love about loot games with the ridiculously fast-paced combat of 90s shooters. It is unapologetic, it is ridiculous, but most importantly, it is 12 tons of dumb fun. I couldn’t stop smiling while playing, and that is a sign of a really good game. Get some Wang, you won’t regret it.

    A bold evolution of a tested formula. Shadow Warrior 2 is fun when played with friends but somewhat chaotic and disappointing when tangled with alone.

    Shadow Warrior 2 is a game about slicing and shooting through hordes of monsters and soldiers. It’s about as classic a setup as the shooter genre has in that regard. A player itching to hack up some demons could do a lot worse. But everything else about Shadow Warrior 2 feels hollow. The characters are lifeless, the jokes aren’t funny, the story is worthless, and the levels are repetitive.

    What would happen if you could mix Doom, Diablo, Duke Nukem and Borderlands in a blender? You would probably get something like this game.What would happen if you could mix Doom, Diablo, Duke Nukem and Borderlands in a blender? You would probably get something like this game.

    I played the previous SW and it was a great game, but it was single-player only and had a more linear gameplay, now the game has changed a lot for good I think.

    Shadow Warrior 2 is a full action packed - fast paced game with nice graphics, classic gameplay and lots of politically incorrect humor.

    Combat is fun and fast, there are so many weapons to pick from, upgrades, tons of loot and even some talents you can use to improve your character.

    The graphics look nice and even impressive at some points (like storms, I really liked that) also the game runs nicely.

    It has a good soundtrack and price is really cool since this game has AAA quality!

    Finally, the most important part to me is Co-op, it is amazing, really fun to play it with friends. I highly recommend SW2 to anyone looking for a co-op action game.

    In general, this is the game very few were expecting but that everyone wants.

    Game looks amazing I would recomend to anybody even if you may not like shooters because its so much more! You can wield a variety of swordsGame looks amazing I would recomend to anybody even if you may not like shooters because its so much more! You can wield a variety of swords and guns. It is a reboot of a 90s pc game that blends the best of old genres on better hardware. Even the first game was great from 2013, this one just became a low key, goty possibly. So first off... Graphics are great! Very high fps! Funny, crude humor that most video games dont use! Demons! Rpg! Good music! Story is ok! Acting is good! Crafting! Variety of landscape! Unigue guns and weapons! Bright colors! Powers! 2-4 player Co-op! And best of all the gameplay is so fun and fluid, switching between favorites in your arsenal is very fast and combat is an over the top rampage that doesnt get boring or repetive. This is a fast paced, action-packed revenge mission with a badass protaganist. Lo Wang. Expand

    Five Word Review: Hectic gameplay with sassy assassin.
    Favorite Thing: The story and characters were enough to keep me going.
    Least Favorite Thing: After a while the gameplay started feeling extremely repetitive. I went with a melee build, maybe that was the problem. All the melee weapons handled nearly identical.

    Date Completed: 2017-07-03
    Playtime: ~ 16h
    Enjoyment: 7/10
    Recommendation: I'm a solid 'maybe'. Try a gun build, maybe you'll like it more.

    АХТУНГ Мат и всё такое

    Я осознал то, что был не прав. Моё сознание застелила любовь к SW, прошлые части я прошёл, ну.. почти по 2 раза. И эта любовь + предзаказ новой, той, что я ждал сыграло свою роль.

    ЭТА ИГРА♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
    Тем, кто любит бордерлендс - 10/10, но я считаю бордер ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥иной

    Плюс - один
    Сеттинг SW и всё, что с SW связано

    Минусы
    - Геймплей. Я думал это из-за максимальной сложности нелепые хп бары у врагов, но нет, это бордерлендс, эти ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ уроны стволов/мечей и не менее тупые модификаторы, где в человека нужно сделать АХТУНГ#2 12+- выстрелов из подствольного гранатомёта, который по урону уступает пистолету.
    - Смерть.. в ней нет смысла: подыхай - не хочу! Вас респнут тут же где вы и упали, просто восстановят хп врагам.
    - Оптимизация - плохая, не верьте другим обзорам. Она лучше, чем у всех нынешних игр, но в соотношении картинка/фпс это всё такое же♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥как и обычно. Спасибо соснолькам за отличные игры
    - Интерфейс очень неудобный
    - ХУД можно настроить, чтобы это хотя бы внешне было SW, а не бордером, но это не отменят его механик, которые и превратили игру в♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥- Диалоги в РПГ системе этой игры прокликивать нужно через жопные кнопки, мышкой выбирать ничего нельзя/кривые хитбоксы баров. Спасибо соснолькам за отличные игры

    Возможно в 2019 году выйдет ps5, которая сможет конкурировать с Pentium 4 и мы сможем поиграть в нормальные игры, но во всё остальном (да и без этого) эта игра ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥олендс варриор 2
