Pros:
+ Awesome weaponry, and multiple ways to kill off enemies.
+ Level Design is linear, but somewhat explorational. You get past the levels in a line, but the line that the levels go is all over the place, and the secret areas that contain weapons, items, jokes, and...toilet girls????
+ The enemies are cliche in design, but they are tough, and satisfying to kill.
+ Remember when FPS games were challenging? This one does.
+ Lo Wang makes you laugh, even when you know you shouldn't, kind of like South Park.
+ THAT DAMN MENU MUSIC!!!!
Cons:
- The story, although let's be honest, nobody cares, not even the devs.
- "HOLY COW! LOOK LIKE DUKE NUKEM!"
- Platforming sections that make you fall to your death from time to time again.
- NOT THE BEES! NOT THE BEES! AAAAAH, THEY'RE IN MY EYES!
- Doom had the Cyberdemon. Wolfenstein had Mecha Hitler. Shadow Warrior has a Sumo Wrestler that farts.
- Lo Wang makes you laugh, even when you know you shouldn't.

Final Score: WHO WANT SOME WANG/Spooky x Fish


Also, I'd like to mention that 3D Realms was misinformed that there was a female clothing shortage in Japan, and the only clothes, if any, were dominatrix outfits, and the only woman with semi-decent clothing was Lara Croft. I like boobs as much as the next guy, but DO SOME ♥♥♥♥IN RESEARCH!

"You want to wash Wang or watch Wang wash wang?" - Lo Wang

This game is comedy gold, and from what I know better than the remake.

Really good game. I was trying this to see if it was worth to buy the REDUX version. Turns out that even this game is really awesome. Can't believe it's free either. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED on my list.

Great game of all times. But if you want to play really cool and hard - buy Redux.

After playing the new Shadow Warrior I like the original more. Better weapons, better level design and better humor.

Oh also this is FREE

This is one of the best 2.5D Shooters out there, and it's FREE ON STEAM. You don't need the Redux edition necessarily unless you hate the original aesthetics for some reason (Redux is a bit brighter in contrast but nothing else really is added other than community maps), but this game is creative for what it is. Whilst enemy design is generic it's still better than guy with gun and guy with a different gun, and speaking of the guns, it has insanely cool design (see the Riot Gun: nuff said), with weapons switching types, up to three in some cases, and the game gets straight to battling the demons of hell, which is what 90s shooters are all about. And if you hate the game, Lo Wang come for you.

Positives include :
-Gore
-Humor
-Wang himself
-Some puzzles are confusing but fun indeed
-Multiplayer ? Haven't tried it but if it works its gonna be GREAT
-Its like a japanese "lighter/friendlier(if i can say friendlier , ♥♥♥♥ can be tough)" version of Brutal Doom and unlike it Steam configures the game for you in dosbox so you have to do nothing except to play.

Negatives :
-For me a negative is looking for that god damn golden key for 45 minutes while the best time on the map is 4 minutes. Everyone should make it in 15-20 without previous experience. Lurking around after having killed all the enemies for a missing key is not fun at all.

Just started the 3rd mission and i give it a fair 8/10. Totally worth to play.





#I'd be glad if someone can tell me if its modable at any point.
