Shadow Warrior Classic Complete Edition is now available for free on GOG (Good Old Games), as part of a move to promote the upcoming game in the series Shadow Warrior 2. SW 2 is technically not the second game in the series, but the 5th one.
Now, back to the game that is being given away,Shadow Warrior Classic Complete Edition, contains the original Shadow Warrior and two expansions: Wanton Destruction and Twin Dragon.
The game is an FPS (first person shooter), featuring Lo wang, the katana/gun toting assassin, and involves some weird humour and gory gameplay. The game is from 1997, and yes of course, it is a DOS game, so don’t expect shiny graphics. But on the bright side, you can even play it on Linux machines running Ubuntu 14 and above.
