Il faut bien avouer que l'on s'amuse bien sur ce soft. Certes, l'aspect technique est d'une autre époque mais cela est rattrapé par une très bonne maniabilité, des phases d'actions non-stop, un arsenal varié et une violence extrême. Bref, du tout bon pour les personnes qui désirent se défouler !
All Game Guide
Shadow Warrior is a solid game that makes you laugh and be queasy (if you're the least bit sensitive to violence and gore) in equal parts. The ninja spin on the game makes it unique and a bit more fun than the standard shooters available. If you're in the mood for a solid shooter, pick this one up -- it's a keeper.
Shadow Warrior is a worthy successor to Duke Nukem 3D and a fit farewell to the Build engine by the very folks who developed it in the first place. Granted, the game's graphics cannot quite measure up to what Quake's 3D engine ushered on the gaming scene. And granted, the game's humor is often less than sophomoric. But Shadow Warrior's outstanding level design and spectacularly gory gameplay get a hearty "banzai" from me!
Shadow Warrior offers some interesting perks that makes it unique from your usual shooter, but unless you've finished every other one of the amazing MacSoft ports this year, you're better of spending your money on Chinese food than destroying the country where it came from.
Shadow Warrior isn't a bad game, but that's the best compliment I can pay it. If you're a die-hard fan of first-person shooters, you'll find Shadow Warrior a moderately entertaining addition to your collection. Otherwise, though, you should pass. Like so many sequels, Shadow Warrior can't match the magic of the original.

Overall Shadow Warrior is a neat idea, that is let down in its completion. It is truly an "also' ran" in the 1st person shoot' em up arena. Quake, even with its solo limitations blows Shadow Warrior out of the water, networked from what I hear Dark Vengeance will make mince meat out of them both. Shadow Warrior, goes in the same pile as Prime Target and ZPC. You'll play it all the way through once and never touch it again. Avoid and save your money.
