Shadow Warrior Is Exactly How Old Shooters Should Be Rebooted

As a kid, I didn't have a PC or gamer friend to grant me access to 3D Realms games in the '90s. I'm not sure if having one would have made me appreciate this remake of Shadow Warrior more, or if it would have made me complain that it's not the same as it used to be. All I do know is that this preview of Shadow Warrior is insane and fun.

If you're also unfamiliar with the original, here's a little taste:

Shadow Warrior is coming out this year for personal computers.


    Toned down the racism? Aww, Loved when things would break down and he'd yell must be American made.

    Fuck 3Drealms.

    agreeing with dknigs.... absolutely loved the original and played it to death.. but Lo Wangs racism, and dark humour are what made shadow warrior, well, shadow warrior.

    Also if im to make direct comparisons, this remake need s to turn up the blood and guts upp by a factor of 10... SW was a very very gory game....

      Lo Wang wasn't necessarily himself, but his caricature was certainly a racist caricature. That's where the problem lies.

    It may be good, but I'm still going to miss the dark, racist and hilarious original Lo Wang.

    loving the absence of iron sights, no health regen - proper old skool

    Edit: just got to the end of the video.....SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

    This looks alright, if it's reasonably priced at launch I'll jump on it.

    This doesn't seem to be as faithful a reboot as Rise of the Triad (Which is very good, and exceptionally close to what the original was, but rebooted for 2013!)

    I wasn't a fan of the controls for ROTT initially but then it occurred to me it is almost IDENTICAL to the 'feel' of the original!
