Lo Wang goes in search of an ancient dragon. He travels through a snowy, volcanic mountain, armed with a pistol and a knife.
After a semi-strange introduction, you’ll set off on a mission. This is an action-adventure shooter packed with attitude and humor.
You can try combat with guns and katana samurai swords. Use the grappling hook for dynamic movement and later activate traps and grinders for maximum damage. You can collect orbs as you go to unlock perks including weapons and abilities (sometimes these are off the main path).
There is a color code for exploding barrels: red for fire, blue for ice and yellow for electricity.
The game is super fast and easy to work with. You can choose from easy, medium and hard levels. The developers promise at least 8-10 hours of gameplay. You don’t need to have played any of the early Shadow Warrior games.
I wasn’t a fan of the character’s perspective. I found the clues hard to read.
If you like a twist on your first slash and shooter game, then you’ll enjoy Shadow Warrior 3.
Available on Steam, Xbox and PlayStation.
