From time to time it is good to enjoy video games with no other pretension than to crush enemies incessantly, which amounts to a pure and hard action game. When thinking about titles of this type, a few examples probably come to mind, but without a doubt, one of the latest and most impressive that has been released has been Shadow Warrior 3.
The third installment of the Flying Wild Hog saga is about to celebrate one year since it was released and that is why those responsible have wanted to celebrate this moment by publishing its definitive edition. Without a doubt, it is the best way for you to see all the good things that this chapter has, especially if you are subscribers to xbox game pass.
More than anything because the game has been one of the last to be added to the catalog with this great edition, so if you are signed up for the service, don’t miss the opportunity to play it on your Xbox One, Xbox Series X/Sin pc or also in the cloud thanks to Xbox Cloud Gaming.
A crazy plot with a combination of sword attacks and gunfights
In this violent and wild FPS it can be said that its plot is not what predominates because in the long run it becomes a mere excuse to advance. Lo Wang returns to repeat the role and this time to face off against a huge dragon in order to stop the apocalypse that looms in the world.
At least something positive is that it is not necessary to have played previous Shadow Warriors. Although it is something that is appreciated to know the characters that appear, it is not something essential either. Even so, what stands out the most above all is how tremendously crazy it is from start to finish, especially because of the dialogues and because in general it doesn’t take anything seriously.
The translation into Spanish is excellent and is appreciated to better understand Lo Wang’s jokes, jokes and not to miss any detail of the foul language that is the order of the day. All this is also accompanied by cinematic sequences that are the most impressive, apparently they have been taken from an action movie.
In any case, the destruction that will be sown everywhere is spectacular, although sometimes it is our protagonist who ends up causing more disasters everywhere. But when it comes time to start distributing burlap, it’s better to have nerves of steel because the action is very hectic and starting to fight like crazy can turn into suicide.
Despite the fact that you have to constantly smash enemies to pieces with your katana or use the imposing firearms to send them flying through the air, you have to be aware of the attacks to be made because the demonic creatures that appear on the screen do not they mess around, so they are able to reduce our character’s life in just a few seconds.
And all this with such an amazing rhythm that makes us not take our eyes off the screen at any time, because most of the encounters will be against waves of enemies that it will be necessary to annihilate to progress in somewhat linear levels. At least you can also take advantage of the environment to activate the most lethal traps that will cause dismemberment and liters of blood begin to rain everywhere.
For its part, the design of the enemies and the final bosses is clearly inspired by Japanese culture and its festivals and something to highlight about them is that they have their own patterns that must be learned thoroughly in order to know better how to dodge his attacks. Even so, in the long run so many elements come together on the screen that it becomes a real chaos, which does not mean that the gameplay is quite fun.
In fact, to make these fights more impressive you can execute some beastly finishers, something necessary to recover life points. In addition, challenges can be carried out to unlock upgrade points, which helps the weapons become more devastating and Lo Wang more resistant at the same time.
Regarding exploration, it’s not like there are many paths to take when advancing through the stages, but exploration becomes very entertaining thanks to the abilities of our peculiar hero, since he can run around walls or use a grappling hook to feel like Spider-Man. Thus, throughout the six to eight hours that the adventure can last approximately.
Squeezing its gameplay even more with the definitive edition
To make it more worth playing Shadow Warrior 3 A few novelties have been added in its definitive edition. Among them is the New Game+ with more additional challenges or new aspects for the different weapons. Along with the campaign mode. others are available, including one of survivalbecause it tests the skill of the players against hellish hordes of enemies.
And if any of this seems somewhat simpler, you can choose an extreme difficulty so that the fights become more demanding and tough than ever. Besides, one of the life improvements is the possibility of selecting chapters that have been previously passed, in order to play a specific one again without the need to start from the beginning.
Finally, the definitive challenge is put by his heroic mode, in which the main story will be played with a limited amount of lives, so you will have to get amazing finishers to get even more. Of course, in the case of losing them all, the game will end and it will be time to start again from the beginning.
