The shooters of the 1990s flirted with explicit and controversial content. The 3D Realms development team had no problems with this approach and were not afraid of taboos, so they developed the game Shadow Warrior in which they stuffed everything and anything and peppered it with provocative humor, starting with the name of the main character named Lo Wang. In free translation, translate it as you wish.
Shadow Warrior brought us a pretty simple story. Monsters from some dark dimension want to conquer Japan… and someone needs to stab them. Although primarily a first-person shooter, Shadow Warrior was remembered for the katana in that Lo Wang tore enemies to pieces, and the first had the concept of a sticky bomb that was later taken over by several other games.
The game received mixed reviews after its release, but the sale was enough to justify two expansions - Twin Dragon and Wanton Destruction. 3D Realms shared the game with the public in 2005, and Shadow Warrior continued to live through mobile ports and later remakes. Shadow Warrior received its official sequel in 2016, followed by a sequel, and this year comes the third part for PC and consoles.
