Expert reviews and ratings

Flying Wild Hog has topped their previous game, Hard Reset, in nearly every respect with Shadow Warrior. A myriad of beautiful environments, crazy but balanced and innovative combat, and a smoother difficulty curve prove that the Polish studio has...

It's almost impossible not to to enjoy Shadow Warrior. It's almost impossible not to be annoyed by Shadow Warrior.

By GameSpot on 70

The crassness is here, but it's merely seasoning in a colorful old-school first-person shooter that allows excitement to build organically from the way its systems interact. If you saw Duke Nukem's 2011 appearance as a personal slight, you'll be glad to know that Lo Wang still stands tall and proud.

If you like a good male genitalia joke, Shadow Warrior won't leave you hard up. After all, the main character's name is Lo Wang; it would be criminal if the game didn't make a few obvious gags.Not that the contents of a man's underpants are the only...

You can pick this one up on Steam as of today, and if the prospect of a demon-fueled asian-themed adrenaline rush sounds like a recipe for fun to you, then set aside a few gigs of hard drive space and get ready to get your sword-and-gun-fu on.

By Metro UK on 60

For a game obsessed with OTT violence and knob gags this is a surprisingly charming and likeable shooter, if an unavoidably shallow and repetitive one.

By HardcoreGamer on 80

Shadow Warrior has big guns, deadly blades, enemies ranging from small to enormous and enough explosions to satisfy even the most pyrotechnically enthusiastic gamer. Shadow Warrior as a franchise probably didn’t warrant a revival of this quality, but now that it’s here we’ve got no complaints.

By GamesRadar on 60

At $40, Shadow Warrior feels just a bit too pricey, despite the stellar presentation and satisfying swordplay. It's exciting, guts-spilling fun in short bursts, but the campaign feels too long and dramatically self-indulgent for its own good. That said, if you want to sever limbs and cleave through torsos using bullets and a blade, you're bound to enjoy yourself. Just don't expect to get your brain or your heartstrings involved.

En definitiva, el Shadow Warrior de 2013 nos hace una oferta con la que nadie se puede sentir engañado. Nos ofrece largas horas de tajos a diestro y siniestro, hectolitros de sangre y olor a pólvora y demonio chamuscado.

By NowGamer on 80

It’s a bit rough, and it’s not built for extended plays (it’s kind of exhausting, and works best in half an hour to hour long bursts), but Shadow Warrior’s proof that there’s still plenty of room for a daft, bloodthirsty shoot-em-up in this increasingly serious world.

By TheEscapist on 70

Shadow Warrior isn't free of some design flaws that can take away from the experience, but as an action game, its combat is solidly put together. While not the easiest to use, the various weapons and sword fighting combos you have really make you feel like a badass warrior whenever you pull off a gruesome decapitation.

By DarkStation on 80

Players eager to treat themselves to some meaty nostalgia will find Shadow Warrior ’13 just as nutritive as Shadow Warrior ’97 was unhealthy. It’s a refashioning that even Ebert would have a hard time disparaging.

Игра получилась довольно спорная, с одной стороны есть 12 часть скучного геймплея и скучный сюжет. Но с другой: часть бешенного геймплея, проработанные главные герои и прекрасная картинка. Я считаю, что этого все же маловато чтобы скрыть такие...

Das neue Shadow Warrior beweist eindrucksvoll, dass Remakes auch mit einem kleinen Budget durchaus erfolgreich sein können. Entwicklerteam Flying Wild Hog hat nicht nur die Stärken des Originals (cooles Setting, unkomplizierte Action sowie ein toller...

Vanhojen pelien ja pelisarjojen uudelleenlämmittely on jo pidemmän aikaa ollut alan trendi, joka jakaa syystäkin vahvasti mielipiteitä. Lopputulokset kun vaihtelevat Deus Ex: Human Revolutionin tapaisista merkkiteoksista uuden Syndicaten kaltaiseen...

International Review By GameElite on 30

Välkommen till ett Japan fyllt av demoner, samurajsvärd, automatvapen, fult språk och styckade kroppar. Shadow Warrior är definitivt inget för den yngre publiken. 3D Realms var en av pionjärerna gällande förstapersonsskjutare (FPS) i 3D. Wolfenstein...
