Critic Reviews for Shadow Warrior 2
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.
Shadow Warrior's surprising new direction makes the sequel a riotous blast, though it can't quite live up to its predecessor.
Shadow Warrior 2's combat is gleefully expressive and varied, but undermined by tired, dated humor.
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
Shadow Warrior 2's unfunny story gets in the way of an otherwise great game.
Shadow Warrior 2 is a beautiful, fast-paced shooter with a ton of guns. There's an RPG-like layer of additional skills and extensive weapon customization, a great cast of characters, and nothing to get in the way of pure reckless shooting. And when you're done with the campaign, there's four difficulty levels, New Game+, and co-op play waiting for you.
Shadow Warrior 2 is in no way a bad game, and I found myself grinning through a lot of it. I'd groan at Wang begging to cut off a penis immediately afterwards, but some people will probably get a laugh out of that. Definite flaws and a laser focus on making the game a more universally sellable experience hurt it, but if you want to shoot shit while shooting the shit with some buddies, you could do a lot worse.
