Shadow Warrior 2
hope you’re okay with blood
Following 12 months that brought us some brilliantly re-energised FPS campaigns like the brutal Doom and the unexpectedly inventive Titanfall 2, Shadow
Warrior 2 promises to join them. Like the first game, expect a mix of low-grade but endearing banter (the protagonist is called Lo Wang, so if you find that funny, this is very much for you), as well as gruesomely detailed and cathartic melee combat. New to the second game is four-player co-op with larger levels to match, as well as more detailed limb destruction and a slew of additional weapons (feel like fighting with a katana chainsaw, anyone?). Even if the game’s deliberately daft sense of humour isn’t for you, decapitating waves of demons with a creative variety of tools perhaps will be. Count us in.
right Flying Wild Hog has gone all-out with the custom damage system.
