After an outing on Windows, Xbox One and PS4 On March 1, 2022, the Shadow Warrior 3 game is back in an improved version designated by Shadow Warrior 3: Definitive Edition, for Steam, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S platforms,
Since February 16, 2023.
Shadow Warrior 3 is a first-person shooting game developed by Flying Wild Hog and edited by the crazy Silver Digital.
The game is the continuation of Shadow Warrior 2 and stages the return of the protagonist, Lo Wang, who must face a new enemy, a demon called The Ancient Gods.
The gameplay of Shadow Warrior 3 focuses on the action and intense fights, with a wide variety of weapons and combat capacities available to players.
The levels are designed to offer complex challenges, with traps, powerful enemies and hidden secrets.
The graphics and the soundtrack of the game are also of high quality, with environments rich in detail and impressive visual effects.
Shadow Warrior 3 is not a perfect game, we can among other things criticize the story of the game a little weak and the characters who lack depth.
Although this version took advantage of a salutary facelift which allows it to enjoy 4K visuals and a frequency of 60 frames per second, we still highlight display bugs here and there.
What about Steam deck?
The Valve portable console is perfectly suited for playing Shadow Warrior 3: Definitive Edition.
The console itself decreases the quality a little but retains a 60 constant FPS.
No need to configure the keys, the game checks are immediately recognized.
I come to the conclusion that it is an ideal game to be played on the move on Steinbeck.
Overall, Shadow Warrior 3 is a solid first person shooting game with intense gameplay and impressive graphics.
However, it may not be suitable for everyone because of its weak history and its potential performance problems.
If you are a fan of first-person action games, Shadow Warrior 3 may be worth trying all the more since it is not very expensive to buy.
Here is the video of our impressions of the game in its 2022 version by my colleague René Adieu:
Fast and very entertaining
Ideal for Steam deck
Not interesting story
A few more bugs
Just an impression of freedom.
