    Extremely nostalgic gunplay and movement, as well as very classic level design reminiscent of Quake.
    A bit too short for the price though, and the dialogue is kinda cringey.

    Average game in all respects. You won't miss anything if you miss this game. I recommend going back to the old games of the genre (Painkiller or Serious Sam). For the price of a game on Steam, grab more worthy chairmen of the genre on sale.
    7 levels from 5 to 10 minutes long, 5 weapons in total (including a melee bat), 7 types of enemies. Variety and originality are what the game lacks.

    Средняя по всем параметрам игра. Вы ничего не упустите, если пропустите данную игру. Рекомендую вернуться к старым играм жанра (Painkiller or Serious Sam). По цене игры в Steam возьмите на распродаже более достойных председателей жанра.
    7 уровней длинной от 5 до 10 минут, всего 5 оружий (включая биту для ближнего боя), 7 видов врагов. Разнообразие и оригинальность - вот чего не хватает игре.

    The gunplay is enjoyable, it's definitely fun to just shoot stuff but there's not much else going for Hellbound sadly. The biggest issue is it's extremely short, about 2 - 3 hours at most. There are also only about 3 or 4 different enemy types so they get old fast. The performance was solid for 99% of the game, I was hitting 144fps no problem until the last (and only) boss fight whichThe gunplay is enjoyable, it's definitely fun to just shoot stuff but there's not much else going for Hellbound sadly.

    Hellbound offers some old school fun if you enjoy putting your aim and reflexes to the test. It’s a shame the developers stopped at seven levels, one boss fight, a handful of monsters, and six weapons (of which two are useless and some lack an alternative fire mode). What would have been merely a first episode in a 90’s shooter, pretends to be a whole campaign in Hellbound. If you’re experienced with the genre, you’ll finish the game in around two hours.

    The team at Saibot Studios have made exactly what they promised to their Kickstarter backers, but I was left wanting more. This doesn't make Hellbound a bad game, but it certainly feels like there were a few things left on the cutting room floor as I finished the game. After a somewhat slow start in the campaign, I was happy to finish the fight, and any fan of 1990s FPS fans could do worse than slaying demons in Hellbound.

    Hellbound is a fun shooter that’s got all the hallmarks of what made the 90s FPS genre so great. Unfortunately, just like the 90s games before it, it’s pretty dated in both optimization and graphics. There’s a large number of bugs and game-breaking glitches to be experienced, all of which tarnish what is otherwise an incredible experience.
