Shadow Warrior the game once created by 3D Realms and GT Interactive is getting a sequel. When the game was first released it was close to Duke Nukem style. Blood, violence, strong language, sarcasm and sexual content made this game unsual for those times. Now another version is in progress which is going to be updated.
New story about sharp tongued ninja has already been released and accepted well by the critics. PC owners can try this game because it came on October 13th. The situation with consoles isn’t that simple. The version for Xbox One or PS4 still isn’t here. According to the latest rumors we can expect in the first quarter of 2017.
As you might remember the first Shadow Warrior told us the story of a ninja who fought against monsters. Today’s plot isn’t very different from the previous one. 5 years have passed since the events of the first part. The main character is still the same Lo Wang who is a modern ninja. His enemy is Zilla leading huge demon army to conquer the Earth.
The recipe of a great game is not always cool visuals and revolutionary gameplay. Sometimes you simply need some style and a good storyline. For the first sight, it seems like Shadow Warrior 2 is just an ordinary FPS with melee attacks, but then you goes deeper to the story, and simple but powerful gameplay with random loot dropping, reminds you the good old times when games were a good source of fun. Even minor glitches and a bit monotonous gameplay cannot erase the grin from your face.

The new part of SWr offers around 70 weapons of all types along with sophisticated loot system. You can choose firearms, swords and even more. Any weapon can be upgraded to provide you with unique skills. The enemies are much smarter now that is why you need to be well prepared with all of your weapons.
Lo Wang is the ninja in charge once again. Now he lives far away from his enemies trying to get some peace. He still makes money on his fighting skills. In this part he is in the conflict between a young scientis and a cult leader. Another thing he needs to deal with is a new drug of terrifying power which is known as Shade.
A secret cult leader who appears in the second part of the game is all covered in mystery. His name stays unknow for a long time. He’s obsessed with bringing ancient pwoer to the world of human because he wants to take over this place. What does he want from Lo Wang? He has a complicated strategy and the whole pictures stays blurred until the very end of the game.
Another key person of the game is a brilliant scientist. He also wants to get his piece of fortune and luck. Perhaps he could’ve had better realtions with Lo Wang but the storyline needs to be more intriguing and we don’t quite know will the be friends or enemies. May be the third part of the game will show?
The upcoming SW offers two modes, single player one along with four players cooperative. The cooperative one shows the story of Lo Wang to each player while companions are seen in the role of anonymous ninjas. Killing enimies will give you experience alon with useful gems to improve your weapons. The game has become less linear and more open in comparison to the previous one. The new mechanics allows to do double jumps climb the walls to explore the game from different perspectives. The missions are revisitable now so you can get back to one later.
What is the ending of any typical ninja story? It must be an epic battle which requires all of your skills. What is the ending of a modern ninja story? Another epic battle with some drama. This is exactly about Shadow Warrior 2. Are you ready stand against gigantic spider looking goddess? What route will you chose after defeating her? The answer is here.
SW 2 has what it takes to make a good action. Dynamic, brutal along with rather wide opportunities. Perhaps the game is not the one which changes the whole industry but this is definitely the one which will give you a good time.
