Series Shadow Warrior

Lo Wang has been working as a Shadow Warrior (a bodyguard and mercenary of sorts) for the powerful Zilla Corporation for years. But when he discovered the evil Zilla's plan to summon monsters from other dimensions and conquer the world, he left in disgust. Realizing that Lo Wang might jeopardize his plans, Zilla sends his assassins after Wang...

Shadow Warrior is a first-person shooter, set in a generic "Asialand" which looks like China and Japan conflated together. It features a lot of immature and politically incorrect humor. Occasionally, you'll even come across scantily clad anime girls.

As Lo Wang you have to complete several levels, fighting enemies and solving (sometimes quite hard) puzzles on the way. Your enemies include evil ninjas with various weapons, "coolies" which carry a crate of dynamite and blow themselves up when near you, female assassins with crossbows and many more.

To combat them, you can find a variety of weapons and equipment. Weapons include: your fists, a katana, shuriken (that's a plural!), a riot gun, an Uzi (or two), a rocket launcher (for which you can find heat-seeking missiles or a nuclear missile), a grenade launcher, sticky bombs, a railgun, and even some enemies' body parts. You can also find equipment such as caltrops to leave in the enemies' way or gas bombs to choke foes who happen to be near it.
