Kowalewski stated that they wanted to keep the violence of the original that "when we started doing our version, we knew that we had to still maintain that violence" while story writer Slawomir Uliasz said the redesigns were to create a newer experience such as Lo Wang who is depicted younger while the original was an old veteran, retaining the humor like oneliners "to keep true to the original" while also not wanting it to be "too serious" either.
The game was released on Steam and GOG. Steam sells two editions: a standard edition and a "Special Edition" that included a digital art book, official soundtrack, and two in-game weapons based on other Devolver Digital published titles; a sledgehammer from Serious Sam 3 and a katana from Hotline Miami in the same retro- pixelated graphics style of that game. If players already own a copy of Saints Row IV on Steam, an in-game weapon known as the "Penetrator" from the series will also be made available.
It is a cross over with Viscera Cleanup Detail , a Steam Greenlight game developed by RuneStorm where players must clean up blood and body parts left after a violent slaughter aboard a space station. Like that game, the mini-game instead has the player cleaning up the mess in the aftermath of the early battle between Lo Wang and the Yakuza.
Shadow Warrior received "mixed or average" reviews, according to review aggregator Metacritic. M Randy of Destructoid scored the game an 8. Won't astound everyone, but is worth your time and cash. Dan Stapleton from IGN gave the game a score of 8.http://outer-edge-design.com/components/texts/3992-oppo-reno-cell.php

You can double-jump, you can dash both on the ground and in the air , you can summon spikes out of the ground to impale your enemies, you can use your chainsaw to systematically remove demon limbs, you can spin in a circle and lop off six robot heads in one stroke of your sword. The enemy roster can get a bit thin, especially since some of them are re-skins from other in-game factions, but there are a ton of enemies and a bunch of places to kill them.
At a Glance. Shadow Warrior 2. Pivot But Shadow Warrior 2 is a very different type of game, and it took me completely by surprise.

This game is simply amazing. Lots of blood, and lots of fun. If you haven't played this game yet, do yourself a favor and get it. As someone who expected a pile of trash from this game, I have been completely blown away by what is probably one of the year's best games. The game is devastatingly beautiful, filled with memorable and unique characters and corny to the correct degree. I strongly recommend this game, and suggest you buy it immediately. The good : At first watching the trailers, I was skeptical.
Visceral, gory, beautiful and not taking itself too seriously is how to describe this game. Oldskool level designs and just plain, fast actions everywhere. Also the swordplay is very satisfying. Unlike the original Shadow Warrior on Dos, your katana plays bigger role here, and most of the time it's more fun to use than the firearms. Character progression, upgrades, etc. Giving you the sense of accomplishment when you upgrade your gear and spells. Secrets, secrets everywhere.
The Bad : No multiplayer? Oh well, but what do you expect. This game is pure blast anyway.
If it's ended up like Rise of the Triad reboot, which has multiplayer slapped in just to for the sake of having multiplayer mode, then it'll be such a waste too. Besides, nobody plays ROTT reboot now. So it's just minor complain. I figure it would be awesome with the sword dueling and fast paced, quake like deathmatch. Lack of optimizations in couple of areas. The framerate got dragged down in several areas. But overall the game is quite smooth.
Seems that the particles are very heavy in this game's engine. So I set it to low. Didn't see much difference and the game is still a blast. Hopefully they do further optimizations for this game in form of patches.
