  • A very attractive and satisfyingly violent run-n-gun shooter, though dogged by periodic performance issues

    Since I’m not a Warhammer fan, I always feel a step behind when checking out titles tied to the property, and am frankly a bit fascinated by the wide variety of genres people have attempted to run with it in. On the plus side, I’d say that this has been my most positive experience with it to date, and whether it fits into that universe well or not I’d say this is an attractive and generally well-produced entry. With plenty of dialogue, a colorfully-violent art style, and also a host of weapons and variety in how you deal with your enemies it pulls you in quickly and can make for a lot of bloody fun. Being more critical, though, there are some cracks here worth mentioning. The first is more of an annoyance, but still something that bugged me, especially early on. While I appreciate the detailed art I also frequently struggled to understand where I was supposed to be going as I’d change between levels vertically. Can I jump up there, or am I supposed to go that way, were too often thoughts in my mind and it was needlessly frustrating just because visually it wasn’t immediately clear where you could go. The other more serious issue I had was with performance. I normally don’t harp on this unless it begins to feel like it’s messing with my success but in this case it fell into that camp periodically. It feels within the realm of things that could improve with a decent patch, but whether it can or will be addressed would remain to be seen. It’s still playable, and offers some wonderfully-animated mayhem, just understand what you’re getting into and that it’s possible that this will play better elsewhere.
