If you were looking for Raunchy humor, Chinese stereotypes, and guns, you found your place. I actually remember finding this by complete accident, and it was a chance I'll never forget. This game is bloody, crazy, and overall addicting.

At least give it a try guys. It is a DOSbox game, so you should mess with the config before playing, just to get everything to work right (Mouse look most importantly).
Real good fun, 9/10.

I'm so happy!...he puts me on my hands and knees and shoves his sword up my butt saying,"i like sword, it's a personal weapon."

One of the most underreated FPS games of the 90s.

For maximum entertainment I recommend playing it in the maximum dificulty "no pain no gain".

By the way there´s a voxel pack for shadow warrior (non official) which includes way more voxels besides the ones of the original game.
To download the pack go here:

swforum05DOTproboardsDOTcom/thread/45/shadow-warrior-voxel-pack

Obviously replace DOT with .

Have fun!

Great game if you're from this era, and remember DOS games in all their glory.
Modern gamers out for high-quality textures, immersive gameplay, or tense multiplayer might as well take a pass on this game- it's not for you.
If you remember how great these games used to be when they came out, and spent hundreds of hours replaying the same levels to find all the little secrets- You have found your holy grail. Exactly the same as the iconic Duke Nukem, but more racist and hilarious.

10/10 would play over and over

Just as hilarious as I remembered. This game is a blast as long as you get the mouse controls fixed!

It's a challenging game, even on medium difficulty. The main character, Lo Wang, is definitely fun to play as, always making cheesy, 90s one liners like Duke Nukem. Such "clever" one-liners include, "I am walking into walls now," or, "Oh: you are falling apart.” The weapons have nice variety, ranging from the conventional Uzi to the ridiculous decapitated head of a Demon Guardian that shoots freaking fireballs, and even... a heart. The exploration is excellent, with many secret rooms, optional backtracking (for finding more ammo, health, armor and even enemies), and destroyable set pieces that may lead to unlocking cool weapons such as the Rail Gun, if said set-piece is kept intact. Ammunition and armor are not as plentiful as you may think, and most weapons eat up ammunition quickly. This makes the player think of strategies to use instead of simply running around, guns blazing. The puzzles, while not the hardest, certainly provoke thought. That's what I love about this game: like its 90s FPS brethren, it's a smart FPS that definitely deserves to be checked out. There is little to no plot however, with the set-up giving you an excuse to kill enemies and make it to the end of the level. Though this is to be expected with an old shooter. Otherwise, I am unable to think of any more negatives. The best part: it's for free!

Absolutely reccomended. I know people will be drawing comparisons of this and duke nukem. Although the graphics are similar, this is SO much better.
Take the gore for example. One swipe from your sword and the enemy is sliced in half! And of course, this is a classic fps. Which means proper levels (not a linear path), lots of blood, secrets dotted around everywhere, intense action, humour, and more. In any case, it's FREE! A classic fps like this for free, what's not to like?
You have no reason not to download this!
