    Necromunda works as a shooter, but the competition is fierce, and it remains several steps behind the masters of the genre.

    Necromunda: Hired Gun is a fast-paced FPS that makes the most of the Warhammer 40K license. The attention to even the smallest detail by the developers and the excellent level design are the setting for a dynamic and frenetic shooter. Unfortunately, just like Streum On Studio’s previous titles, this latest video game by the French team is plagued by a number of technical problems and issues in the AI department.

    Like so much of the Warhammer 40K universe, Necromunda is a richly imagined world filled with the potential for conflict and storytelling. Using it as the setting for an action-filled shooter makes total sense. Although its mechanics are essentially a greatest-hits collection of ideas from other shooters, Necromunda: Hired Gun is a competent introduction to this particular slice of the Warhammer 40K-verse. At some point, however, repetition and fatigue with the one-note approach to pacing and the relentlessly hopeless nature of the world set in. You begin to desperately hope for some humanity, emotional depth, humor, or variety…which I guess ultimately is the plight of the Underhive’s residents. It just shouldn’t be that of the gamer.

    Necromunda: Hired Gun fails to exploit the full potential of the fascinating universe of Warhammer 40K. It’s a fun action game that is heavily inspired by Doom Eternal but lacks attention to detail and there are several problems in its gameplay structure.

    Necromunda: Hired Gun does have redeeming qualities. The movement is great, the gunplay feels good, and the environmental design is stellar. There's simply a legion of issues on both the design and technical fronts working overtime to hold it back. If you are willing to overlook Hired Gun's many problems and massive amounts of jank you'll likely have a great time blasting gangers to bloody bits. But, I won't fault you for waiting on a sale or sequel instead.

    Necromunda Hired Gun rests its foot on the accelerator of dynamism and violence, yet it has an imprecise aim. Many of its problems derive from strictly technical stumbles, some of which can be solved with special updates (such as bugs or application crashes), while others are innate in its playful DNA, and have to do with feedback from the shots almost totally absent, with an artificial intelligence crude beyond belief, and with a general flatness of the shootings. The always timeless charisma of Warhammer takes care of everything, but with a license of this value available, we are convinced that Streum Studio could have done more to honor the Imperium.

    Necromunda is a sight to behold, but it's undermined by wonky shooting, superfluous mechanics, and bugs.

Я не знаю, чего ждали все те люди, которые пишут про "проклятье Вархаммера", "по вахе не выходят хорошие игры" и т.д.? AAA+ проект? Ну-ну.

    Плюсы
    + Великолепные интерьеры локаций с большим вниманием к деталям. Авторы чётко следуют лору Некромунды
    + Для инди-игры вообще неплохая картинка. Кстати, в отличии от Doom Eternal, нет налёта мультяшности, когда демоны воспринимались полуигрушечными порой
    + Бодрое мочилово. Высокие скорости, в т.ч. за счёт крюка, бега по стенам и двойного прыжка. При этом в отличии от Doom Eternal, каких-то диких распрыжек, причём обязательных по сюжету, тут, слава Императору, нет.
    + В общем вполне достаточно стволов
    + Обширная кастомизация оружия
    + Определённое разнообразие миссий. Например, есть миссия на поезде Орлоков, есть оборона базы от толп врагов с медленным отступлением, есть полухоррорная экскурсия в купол, заражённый генокрадами и т.д.
    + В отличии от Doom Eternal, игра ДАЁТ возможность проводить добивания в ближнем бою, но не ЗАСТАВЛЯЕТ делать это постоянно.

    Минусы
    - Местами темп игры проседает, и надо какое-то время бегать по пустым коридорам.
    - Сюжет? Считайте, что его здесь особо нет. Впрочем, в подобные игры обычно играют не ради сюжета.
    - Побочные миссии как по мне не нужны
    - Не очень проработан баланс оружия. Например, тяжёлые стабберы легко уделывают плазму, т.к. у последней уж больно маленькие магазины.
    - Плохая оптимизация, в т.ч. на топовых видеокартах. Впрочем, лаги мне не сильно мешали на 1070GTX.

    Неоднозначности
    +- Саундтрек местами хороший, но часто бывает, что "провисает". Авторы не сделали полноценный динамический саундтрек. В итоге на экране порой мясо, а играет тухленький эмбиент.

It's janky, most enemies are humans with hitscan guns, almost no mythical beasts to fight and weapons don't feel that powerful. I'm not a Warhammer fan, but Warhammer fans deserve better. Expand

Simply can not understand what a point to run same locations to trying to find some more virtual numbers on loot.

    Graphics is dicent but cmon locations' geometry is terrible. Just symetric boxes with corridors on both sides.

    If you finish a first mission you can say that you get whole game content. After this you wont find anything new.

    Also i'm not familiar with necromenda lore, so all dialoges and plot sudenly became poinles for me. Just don;t know what characters talking about. Boring. Not fun.

    Old school FPS with decent graphichs. Story is generic with levels similar to each other without any uniqueness. I wouldn't recommend
