Nostalgia is big right now. Between crowd-funded revivals like Shadowrun Returns and publisher rebooted franchises like Rise of the Triad, there’s no shortage of games being released that look to recapture the spirit of videogames’ past. Some of these titles stumble by sticking too closely to outdated design elements — let’s never navigate floating platforms from a first-person perspective ever again. Others manage to cherry pick the kind of mechanics that still hold up today and incorporate them into otherwise modern gameplay. The newly released Shadow Warrior, a fresh take on 3D Realms’ 1997 shooter, belongs to the latter category.
