Tells the offbeat tale of Zilla Enterprise’s corporate shogun Lo Wang as he is ordered to acquire a legendary blade of limitless power by his deceitful employer. Betrayed and left for dead, Lo Wang learns of the blade’s connection to ancient gods from another realm preparing to push our world to the brink of destruction. Now the reluctant hero must become legend through a masterful combination of gun, blade, magic and wit to uncover the truth behind the demonic invasion and banish evil back into the darkness.
Score! Best shooter this year in my opinion!
Wang is back and damn is it good! The graphics, oh dear god!
Alternative fire modes, something not common in modern FPS games. Usually the alt-fire button is iron sight.
I like how shurikens are now unlimited and I liked weapon upgrades a lot. Plus the katana skins. Man! Then there are secrets, encouragement to exploration, references, bunny sex is back, Titsubishi is back. I liked Wang's younger self. And the cutscenes are all nice & skippable (thank gods, not something common in modern games). And you can use numbers to cycle through your weapons, which is also quite nice!
Then there are new weapons, the sword fight is hands down amazing, pretty gory and fun game.
Though it's stupidly linear, with plenty of secrets (legit secrets) and a couple of invisible walls and instant death sectors. The way game saves is confusing, I'm used to a single slot for manual overwriting. The game creates new saves every time I push the button. Plus it uses checkpoints (which I have off).
But overall, as a reboot. ******* amazing! Lo Wang's back!
A properly mixed old school with a few things from new school. Bow before it's greatness. Though you have to admit the game feels more like Serious Sam/Painkiller now than Shadow Warrior. That's not bad, but it's different. And yeah it lacks multiplayer, but the singleplayer is pretty solid so it does not need one. Ooh and modding would be sweet!
Anyway! Amazing game! I'm typing like nuts. Go get it, it's on GOG too! Get it! Now! You won't be disappointed.
Black metal demon bunny is gonna eat your soul!
