Shadow Fight 2 is a one-on-one, free-to-play fighting game. You take on a series of warriors in silhouetted battles, gaining new weapons and learning new moves as you progress.
The game plays at a slower pace than many fighting games; there is a delay between you inputting actions and them occurring on screen. This creates almost a Dark Souls-like combat feel, and it’s one of the key strengths of Shadow Fight 2: it’s not just your reactions or technique that are important, success also depends on your choice of moves and timing.
The fights can become very tense, particularly when your health bar is dwindling away, and the feeling of landing a well-timed attack never gets old. What’s more, the lifelike animations act as a tasty counterpoint to the comic book art style found in the menus.
