Shadow Warrior is using the Duke3D engine, right?
I think I did not play this one at the time.
Terminal Velocity I liked - though the price tag looks a bit too high...

I don't recall playing either game.

In my book, Shadow Warrior is the best Build engine game - Lo Wang's lines are killer! (btw Build engine = what was used in Duke3D).
Terminal velocity is a really fast action 3d shooter - the code was really cutting edge back then. It's definitely a fun game but I never really played it that much.

ggn> btw Build engine = what was used in Duke3D
I did not know it was called that; always referred to it as the 'duke' engine.

'This a good day to die' lo Wang's classic one liners when firing the mini nuke.
Ken Silverman was the creator of the build engine. http://advsys.net/ken/
Terminal Velocity was bundled with the Microsoft SideWinder 3D Pro Joystick. I still have it and you could put the game disc into a CD player and play the cracking music. My those were the days.
I also spent forever building levels in Duke nukem-ken Silverman's build engine again. The actual explosions in game where caused by yellow gas bottles shrunk down to invisible size, so they were not seen in game. Very clever and a great editor.
