Did You Know?


In level 4 ("Dark Woods of the Serpent"), once inside Ripper Valley, go downstream from the waterfall. You can dive under where the river runs under the rock ledge. When you emerge from the water the game will say that you found a secret area, but there is more in this area you should investigate. Head south and jump on the short wall and you'll see an "unordinary" rabbit, a chalice and a knights helmet. This is a reference to Monty Python and the Holy Grail. If you blow up the wall beyond the chalice, you'll be rewarded with two fortune cookies and some missiles as well. See more »

Good fun.
8 October 2012 | by (Deadwood) – See all my reviews

From 3D realms, meet the new contender - Lo Wang. After the success of Duke Nukem, Shadow Warrior, in my opinion really rocked the boat. Yes, it reminds you on Duke Nukem so much, but try not to pay attention, only the engine is the same and the idea that Lo Wang is somewhat also a macho alpha male like Duke, the only difference is that Duke got chicks, but Lo Wang does not. Lo Wang is a former ninja and a bodyguard to a powerful business man Zilla. After Wang leave Zilla's corporation, he sends his armies of darkness to kill such a mighty warrior as Wang. As you play, you get multiple weapons, and other helpful things, also ability to operate vehicles. Lo Wang has one liners, just like Duke, and they are also based on some dry humor and manly talk. Wang is voiced by John William Galt who did an excellent job. Your enemies are also pretty cool, graphics are the same like Duke Nukem's, good for that time, gameplay is highly entertaining. If you haven't tried Shadow Warrior, I recommend you do so.
