Look, I'm as surprised as anyone that Shadow Warrior is getting a reboot but I suppose after the announcement of the new Rise of the Triad all bets were off. I didn't play the original but I saw my friend having a great time back in 1997 playing it. If you're in the same boat as me, then you'll be happy to know that the Shadow Warrior Classic is now available for free on Steam.

This is a fairly smart move on the behalf of publisher Devolver Digital; it'll help people like myself familiarise themselves with a game they knew about but didn't play.

Review: Shadow Warrior

This Shadow Warrior was never going to be an easy sell for me. An enormous fan of the 3D Realms original, I was an instant skeptic when news of a more "modern" reboot first hit. My '90s PC elitism kicked in, my fingers went i...more
