Shadow Warrior 2
Action 13 October 2016
A sequel to a first-person action game, which in turn was a remake of a popular FPS from 1997. Polish developer Flying Wild Hog comes back with a continuation set five years after the events of the first game. In Shadow Warrior 2 you play as Lo Wang, who now leads a lonely life of a mercenary working for the local Yakuza. Gameplay mechanics did not change much, so the protagonist takes down on his enemies using a wide arsenal of firearms and melee weapons. The sequel retains the progression system featured in the first game as well as weapon customization. What is new, is the four-people co-op mode, in which a group of players fights off enemies while trying to complete mission objectives. In both single player campaign and co-op mode the locations are procedurally generated, which makes each playthrough unique.

An action game shown from a first-person perspective. The game is a remake of hit game that was released in 1997. The title was developed by studio Flying Wild Hog in cooperation with publisher Devolver Digital. The protagonist of Shadow Warrior is a martial arts master Lo Wang who searches for a legendary blade Nobitsura Kage for the Zilla Enterprises corporation. Hordes of demons that managed to get into the human world are trying to stop him. The gameplay combines traits of first-person shooters and slasher games. The protagonist is equally skillful in using various gunfire and ninja weapons (katanas, shurikens and other). The game allows great freedom in developing the character and modifying his equipment.
Shadow Warrior (1997)
Action 13 May 1997
An action game by the creators of the cult FPP shooter Duke Nukem 3D, heavily based on the latter. It utilizes the same engine as its predecessor and features similar gameplay mechanics, but has a different atmosphere and setting. You play as a Japanese master assassin, a member of the Shadow Warriors clan. Betrayed by his employer, who's trying to conquer Japan, Lo Wang has to fight with the overwhelming forces of the enemy. Like a proper warrior from the Land of the Rising Sun, his weapon of choice is a samurai sword. He also uses shurikens and other typical Japanese weaponry, as well as more modern equipment, such as Uzis, shotguns, rocket and grenade launchers. Lo Wang faces his opponents in 3D surroundings, which are more advanced than those in Duke Nukem 3D—for example, the buildings are multi-storied now.
