Other titles come from even more distant past - these form iconic and fundamental classics our editor-in-chief played his brains out with as a kid. No matter, though, which generation of gamers you represent. Get ready for a huge portion of nostalgia. Entirely for free.

Shadow Warrior

GENERAL INFORMATION

  1. Genre: FPS
  2. Release date: 1997
  3. Developer: 3D Realms
  4. Available at: GOG, Steam

Shadow Warrior undergoes its second childhood thanks to maniacs from Flying Wild Hog, who delivered two high-octane shooters, a reboot of the series and its continuation, where players assume the role of a mercenary by the name of Lo Wang and rampage for a good cause. Just like in the original, which is now available for free in several places online.

Shadow Warrior is a pleasant shooter developed by the creators of Duke Nukem 3D and based on the same engine. Another common denominators include interactive worlds and parodic verve. The difference being the fact that instead of bruisers from the States, it ventures into the Asian action cinema. It takes no prisoners, though. The game is funny as hell, shameless, and absolutely naughty. And quite brutal.

HOW WELL DID IT AGE?

The game mostly aged in terms of its visuals. The models have their charm, nonetheless, people not used to pixels might go into shock. When it comes to gameplay, the game is still mellifluous and funny, provided one comes to terms with contemporary simplifications. It never was the best shooter available but it didn’t have to be to provide a lot of fun.
