Michael Kitchin writes, "This renaissance of old school first-person shooters has really given us some gems. Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun can comfortably add itself to that list. The combat is tight and frenetic with an ensemble of effective weaponry. Levels feel large and varied, although the lack of a map can lead to some confusing moments. The fiction and lore has never been my thing but it does seem to fit this very straight-forward, no nonsense effort. Enjoyable and rewarding from start to finish."
CCG writes - "Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun is what I would best describe as a mechanically solid, yet fundamentally flawed experience. It controls great, shooting (with the boltgun at least) feels great, and the sprite work is very impressive for the enemies and weapons. On the other hand, it reaches its peak early, and there are some nasty frame drops every once in a while and very questionable level design. "

Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun leans into its 90s roots with a challenging, creative and visually arresting shooter.
