Vivid Gamer: Shadow Warrior Review

Andrew of Vivid Gamer writes: "This isn’t 1997′s Shadow Warrior. Above all else, this reboot of the Build engine… err… “classic”… makes great strides to play nothing like its predecessor. For those with fond memories of the original, this may come as a great disappointment, but it highlights a significant element that has been missing from many modern day reboots of classic shooters. Earlier this year, Rise of the Triad came out, and was as accurate to the original as a remake can be. The key word there is “remake”. They were not making a new Rise of the Triad, they were making another Rise of the Triad. And believe me, I love that game to bits, but it does feel more oddly cynical, in a way. A starry-eyed rehash is still a rehash, after all; new ideas are not at a surplus, resulting in a product whose overt familiarity is its biggest strength. Also, Rise of the Triad ran like crap and was so fast it was barely controllable – there, I said it." (PC, Shadow Warrior) 9/10
