Shadow Warrior is built upon the successful Build engine, that brought you Duke Nukem 3D. Use huge 3D rotating gun turrets to mow down opponents, swim, duck, jump, drive vehicles, climb ladders, Visit realistic places and settings in the game like an airport where a plane has crashed, construction sites and more, not just dark, dreary, faceless dungeons. Intense interaction with your environment in which you can blow up nearly every object, or interact with it in some way. Ever wondered how Duke would look if he was Asian? Here's the answer.
Shadow Warrior provides a mixed bag, on one hand the levels are suprisingly realistic, more so than its distance foreign relatives: Blood and Duke3d. But its got a distinctively shorter campaign, smaller modding community, and bosses that really lack power against the unstoppable Lo Wang.
The weapons are pretty cool, a sword, shuriken, 2 severed demon limb/organ weapons, 2 modern weapons, 1 high tech weapon and 3 explosives that I found myself using alot which also made the game alot easier except the explosions have quite a big radius so you also have to be equally careful.
The humor is double entendre's (fortune cookies), **** jokes & some pop culture references which are all appreciated with Lo Wangs accent. The main reason to play this is for the level design (even though I did get stuck alot, many of the keys and keycards are hard to find).
