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 Classic Redux
If you enjoyed Duke3D then you should enjoy this. Its just as good if not better. Its the Asian version of Duke3D, which means its gonna be racially offensive.
The weapons are great:
Katana or Fists, Shuriken,
Riot shotgun, Uzi (+dual wield), Grenade launcher and rocket launcher,
Sticky bombs (stick to any surface including enemies), Railgun,
Guardian head (the head of an enemy that shoots fire), Ripper heart (heart of an enemy that can make a clone of you).
Powerups: fortune cookies give health boost, armor, Nuclear bombs, Heatseeker cards for rocket launcher.
Interesting enemies like female warriors, Sumos, even ghosts.
There is less nudity than Duke3D, the girls are anime girls.
Keys can be used multiple times, you have the keyscards but you also have keys for locks.
The game is more fast-paced than Duke3D but at the same time easier. My main weapon in Duke3D was a shotgun, in Shadow Warrior its the dual Uzi.
Bosses are also easier, not giant alien monsters.
