Shadow Warrior 2's combat is gleefully expressive and varied, but undermined by tired, dated humor.

No Recommendation / Blank

Shadow Warrior's surprising new direction makes the sequel a riotous blast, though it can't quite live up to its predecessor.

8.6 / 10.0

Wang's stupid wisecracks kept me smiling from start to finish, and the variety of melee and ranged combat and the loot that dropped from it was satisfying enough that I came back with friends for more. It's great fun in solo or in co-op, and its small degree of randomization is enough to keep the action fresh for at least a few runs.

When Shadow Warrior 2 is firing on all cylinders, it's an enjoyable action-packed experience, but those moments are few and far between in a campaign that's too long for its own good
