Did You Know?


In level 4 ("Dark Woods of the Serpent"), near the end of the level you will see a flying carpet, jump to it. It will start flying down a lava pit. You will see two caverns to your right with a ninja firing at you. Kill him and jump to the caverns. Behind the caverns you will find a corridor with some explosive barrels. Shoot them (from a safe distance). You will now see, through a break in the wall, a hidden room with someone at the opposite end. Get closer and you will see that it's Lara Croft (from "Tomb Raider") imprisoned. See more »

Two words: "a" and "blast". Better than Duke Nukem ever was.
28 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Shadow Warrior offers pretty much everything you'd want from a fast-paced shoot-'em-up. The weapons are awesome -- you start out with a sword and some shurikens and will find a quad-barreled shotgun (with an auto-fire mode), dual Uzis, a rocket launcher (with a heat-seeking mode and a nuke), a grenade launcher, sticky bombs (possibly the most memorable weapon in the game), among others I won't spoil here. Combine that with over-the-top blood and gore for the time, and you have the perfect alternative to adrenaline.

Parents, if you do not want your child to hear off-color humor or see enemies explode, get sliced in half, and blood splattering all over the place, then don't let your child play this. Thankfully, Shadow Warrior takes advantage of a parental lock-out password system.

If you loved Duke Nukem 3D, then go play this game now. 'Nuff said. A definite 10 / 10 to this one!
