    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.

    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

    Pretty good game with a decent but not too high Price on Steam. Most fun in coop, singleplayer is okay-ish.

    Good graphics smooth gameplay,

    Good graphics
    smooth gameplay, runs perfect on max settings
    sadly you cannot cut through stuff like grass or spider webs or Trees which would be hella fun.

    One Game of the 2016 released games which isn't total trash. Thanks for that.

    Actually really really good, and dismemberment and gore all over! Still keeping up a lot of the cheesy 'humor' from the earlier ones.Actually really really good, and dismemberment and gore all over! Still keeping up a lot of the cheesy 'humor' from the earlier ones.
    Borderlands loot mechanic can be a hit or miss depending on your own opinion!
    New patch split the community from hating the changes to liking them. I'm neutral so far.

    I only used ranged weapons 3 times by now.. sword-fighting is a lot more fun!

    Shadow Warrior II it's a classic shooter merged into modern graphic, stunning effects, stylized and cool animations with a simple RPG elementsShadow Warrior II it's a classic shooter merged into modern graphic, stunning effects, stylized and cool animations with a simple RPG elements visually enriched from an incredible amount of artworks. The weakest point in my opinion is the way they fit the missions that aren’t exactly tailored like the first one but this time more fragmented and a way more repetitive. The multiplayer it’s ok until you don’t have to deal with too much higher ping connection. Despite that, it’s fun, entertaining and not so bad if you alternate the single player campaign with the more chaotic co-op mode without losing under the main story side.

    Flying Wild Hog is a very talented company that I follow since Hard Reset. They always paid attention to details and smooth game play with singular, funny weapons features. To be mentioned the remarkable choice to add elemental attributes like fire, thunder, ice and poison to the weapons itself, boosting their offensive potential and damage amount in the perfect way of the role play games. I was impressed on the double amount of visual stuff here compared to the first Shadow Warrior where the story, the plot, was a way stronger and well presented considering that Lo-Wang and company came from a 3DRealms 90’s classic. In particular, not really surprised from 3D elements (because they hold pretty much the standard, the ideal of beauty and candy-eye animations) but the pleasure of incredible 2D illustrations such menu backgrounds, role play style cards and so on that deserves a dedicated showroom.

    Highly suggested to all the players that wants to have pure fun especially with friends in co-op mode.

    Cheers!

    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
