Critic Reviews for Shadow Warrior
So in the end, does Shadow Warrior make a good addition to the Xbox One library? I think this is a worthy purchase – particularly for those who didn't play the PC version – but I just wish the loading issues weren't a factor, because they did take me out of the flow of the action from time to time.
Shadow Warrior is without a doubt a big, dumb thrill ride. It isn't looking to push the boundaries of what we can expect from a video game narrative, but could have perhaps invested a bit more in keeping its blade sharp through more diverse enemy types and combos. However, even with that said, even a dull blade is fun to swing around at times.
Shadow Warrior is more than just puerile jokes and demons – there are some quite interesting technical faults in there as well. The personality of the game is enough to recommend to those that enjoy old-school shooters, but it comes with a warning: Wang should probably be taken in small doses.
