    Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun is a Doom-inspired shooter set in the universe of the Warhammer 40,000 games. Here is our Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun Review.

    The game was developed by Auroch Digital and published by Focus Entertainment, it was released on May 23, 2023, for PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5.

    This shooter set in the Warhammer universe takes the classic Doom games but puts them in a more modern jacket while retaining some of its visual style choices, something that certainly sets the game apart in the looks department, but looks are not everything, it has to play right as well, and good news, that does Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun as well! Something that was a bit lacking was its story, there was some, but not enough to pull me through the whole game sadly. The story is being told by some boxes on the top left in text form, something I dont really have time to pay attention to when I try running around and taking down all the enemies and hunting for some secret locations.

    Something I never played before was a Warhammer game, so I was a bit skeptical of actually trying it and enjoying it without knowing any lore, but it didn’t matter that much due to its lack of story, so this is a great entry point to try one of these games out, even though all games basically are a different type of game. It just screams classic shooter in every way possible, the secrets that can be found and give you extra things and the way they are hidden behind walls and hard to get to locations. What I didn’t like was that after the level was over, the extra power you got from the secrets was basically gone, so after a few levels, I kind of stopped caring about them because they only helped me for a few minutes before completely disappearing.

    There are a few chapters with around 8 levels per chapter, it seems like it’s not much, especially early on, but not each level is as short as it seems, but you could also speedrun it and get a fast time, the game tracks that as well together with the secrets and the percentage of enemies you have killed in that level. Now that it’s on Game Pass, it’s a must-try for anyone who likes shooters, because its a damn good one that is just very unique.
