Shadow Warrior Demo

There's now a playable demo for Shadow Warrior on Steam, offering the chance to go hands-on with Flying Wild Hog's remake of the campy martial arts shooter. The game is on sale for 75% off until tomorrow in case this touches your inner Wang. Word is: "Flying Wild Hog and Devolver Digital have added a free demo to the Shadow Warrior Steam store page for those grasshoppers that have yet to accept the way of the Wang. Please help spread the word and share this free taste of Shadow Warrior with friends." Thanks Frans.

Highly entertaining. I have the graphics on Ultra and have to admit it looks great. The sword is awesome but can get boring after a few swipes. I do love me some good ole fashion shootin! The pistol has a good feel for it and I've yet to get anything else in my play time...
Might be worth picking it up although I'm really contemplating just waiting until I finally upgrade. My 6 years old PC is being pushed to it's LIMITS at this point.

Great shooter and solid in every respect, but yeah, the level design could have been much better if they kept it to the style of the original game. Now it's dangerously close to a corridor shooter. It feels like it's just a collection of monster rooms. I wish they'd do a Blood remake.

Same, but it is fun. And the humor is good.

It is worth $10, but it did not blow me away. It has some great melee combat, but the levels are small, linear, and there is not a lot of variety.
It wants you to build up combos, but the abilities slow down combat.

Can you change the FOV? I get motion sickness from games from time to time,and usually changing FOV will fix it. Unfortunately, not all games let you adjust it (or not easily).

You can, and I tried, but I think it has more to do with how wrong the motion feels to me.

I just tried the demo and it gave me motion sickness. Something about the movement isn't quite right to me.

I'm in the same spot, had to pass on it when it was on sale at GOG earlier this year for that reason.

The gameplay videos on youtube look really great but OTOH it seems very similar to Serious Sam.

Shadow Warrior is on my monolithic "to play" list.

...I've gotten better with my purchases, so I don't own it, thankfully.

Though I'll give the demo a shot.

This game needs to be commended for its realistic depiction of grease-stained sunglasses. Its worth 10 bucks, for that alone.

I keep meaning to try this, and both videos and folks that have played it speak well of it. Yet for some reason, I can seem to part with the $10. Maybe it's because I know that even if I buy it, I have no idea when I'll actually get around to playing it.

Too many damn games!

I bought it for 75% off months ago... GOG.com, can 2015 be a gap year where we all catch up!

That's where and when I picked it up, as well.

I wish the hell they would do a simple deathmatch multiplayer for this game.

That would be kinda awesome...but who would ever use the guns?

It's probably blasphemous to say I prefer this reboot/remake over the original Shadow Warrior. The melee combat is surprisingly well made. Gameplay is a huge step up from FWH's previous game, Hard Reset. Even the story was kinda good for a shooter. Level design is nowhere near Duke Nukem 3D or Blood. However it isn't needlessly frustrating and doesn't have the rushed feeling like the original. It's the one Build engine game I cannot force myself to replay to completion.

Get Shadow Warrior and remember Flying Wild Hog.

I've tried the demo last night. It's okay but me too have too many games to play atm. So I'll skip buying this one.
I got that Serious Sam vibe from it.
