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 »

Very Replayable
14 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Not many are aware that Shadow warrior was in development even before Duke3D. From its relatively primitive starting point, the final release of Shadow Warrior took the build engine to its limits and today, has even been enhanced with OpenGL support and a high resolution pack project in the pipeline.

So what made SW so great? It was essentially Duke of Japan or Asia, starring another one of 3DRealm's kickass characters, the wacky ninja Lo Wang, pardon the errors in geography with respect to naming. No other game boasts of such a character who makes every moment of this game unique and replayable.

On the techie front, SW did have some excellent levels and some crappy ones as well. The artwork is well done but the character artwork could have been better. The weapons and items were very enjoyable to use. Wang Bang, the multiplayer mode, was also much more fun than Duke's multiplayer.
