"I think I am in love with this resurgence for reboots of old-school first-person shooters. It wasn't long ago that Rise of the Triad released, and while not perfected, the game was a rediscovery for the past - its challenging gameplay and complex level design were taken from the 90s first-person shooter library. Shadow Warrior falls along the same lines. It’s not copying from anyone else; it hasn't got crappy, forced multiplayer; and it certainly doesn't come across like a game that was crafted in an era where everyone is gung-ho for military themed shooters. Shadow Warrior feels like it has come from a time where developers were having fun making games and coming up with interesting mechanics, refreshing settings and crafting diversity to make sure their games stood out from the crowd. A period where No One Lives Forever, Blood II, Shogo: Mobile Armor Division, Star Wars: Jedi Knight, and Kingpin: Life of Crime were great showcases for the genre. If you enjoyed any of those games, then Shadow Warrior will be worth checking out, as it invokes so much of that history in its design."
