Shadow Warrior 2 - PC Review

Hack, slash and puns. Demons and spiders? Some weird combinations, but this is what gives Shadow Warrior 2 its unique flavour and feel.

Gameplay:

I might be new to this, seeing how I never played the first Shadow Warrior but, as smooth as the game looks. Jumping around and dodging enemies in the new Shadow Warrior game can get a bit tiresome. It feels almost sluggish the way the character reloads and switches weapons.  The character also takes no fall damage which i am still deciding if that is a good or bad thing.

The game also almost forces you to use the sword as the guns are not that powerful at the start unless you get headshots on your enemies. That being said, it is still super funny when you blast a limb off an incoming enemy.

Shadow Warrior 2 also introduces a new co-op 4 player mode where each player goes through the game as the main character Lo Wang, but each player sees their teammates as an anonymous ninja.

Storyline:

I don’t know much about the storyline other than the fact that it is set 5 years after the events of the Shadow Warrior 1 game. You play as the character Lo Wang a modern day ninja who has to battle hordes of demonic creatures sent from another dimension under Zilla command. You have to do all this with a voice in your head telling you what to do.

Replay Value:

Single player mode in this game for me is a onetime deal. But seeing how there is co-op mode, a game can really feel fresh and exciting when you play it with a bunch of friends who have your back. It is always funny to see an NPC (non-player character) getting confused about who to attack.

Audio:

All weapons have a unique sound; whether it is firing your shotgun or machinegun you will hear each recoil and bullet penetration which suits the game nicely. Hearing the squish of the bullet as it passes into your enemies flesh is kind of satisfying.

A funny take on the game is the commentary done by the main character as you hack and slash your way through the enemy hordes, he is sure to crack a joke or two to keep the mood light.

 

My Opinion:

As I mentioned before, this is the first installment of the series which I played and it has its ups, but keep in my that there are some downs as well,  especially if you are a casual for other FPS (first person shooter) games such as call of duty and battlefield.

The game has potential but I see it being more enjoyable playing it co-op style. This allows for more variation within the game. If you have money sitting around and are looking for something new. Then this is a game for you to check out.
