Summary

Who wanted some wang? (The japanese Duke Nukem)

The Good

The build engine in SW has been updated and there are a lot more of possibilities to interact with everything surrounding you (you can drive vehicles like tanks "!", use remote controls and lots of funny stuff to do) there is also an interesting option were you can toggle 2D objects to 3D objects, not very good looking but it's a detail. There are also lots of humor, you will hear through all the game lots of quotes by Lo-Wang in a pure Duke-ish style (You no mess with Lo Wang!)

The Bad

If you just only want action some of the puzzles in the game might frustrate and bore you, there are not only key-finding puzzles, so some more a bit more complicated... Sometimes i found myself entering a room and getting killed at the instant by a bunch of monsters, the monsters are real though sometimes.

The Bottom Line

An interesting game that has not received very good reviews, maybe because it's more of the same? or because those reviewers haven't played it enough to discover the little jewels this game hides? Anyway it's real funny and challenging. Cowabunga!
