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!

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.

"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.

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!

Do you want a ninja game thats suitablle for all ages, features non memorable characters and is duller than a monkeys ballsack after a rubbing from his monkey wife?
Then you best get away from this game.
This game features jokes about Wang. A LOT OF JOKES and they all made me laugh like a little ♥♥♥♥♥.
10/10 -IGN
