Lo Wang sets off to recapture an ancient dragon. He travels through a snowy, volcanic like mountain armed with a gun and knife.
After a semi-weird introduction, you’ll set off on your mission. This is an action-adventure shooter game packed with attitude and lots of humour.
You can try combat with guns and katana samurai swords. Use the grapple 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 colour code for the exploding barrels: red for fire, blue for ice and yellow for electricity.
The game is super-fast paced and easy to work out. You can select from easy, medium and hard levels. The developers promise at least 8 to 10 hours of gameplay. You don’t need to have played one of the earlier Shadow Warrior games.
I wasn’t a fan of the character’s viewing angle. I found the hints hard to read.
If you like a twist on your first player slash and shooting game, then you’ll enjoy Shadow Warrior 3.
Available on Steam, Xbox and PlayStation.
