It's a shame then that the rest is quite limp at times. It's not awful, but it misses the mark in enough ways that make the experience somewhat unsatisfying. Fights quickly devolve into autopilot shooting galleries, and repetitious barks and oblivious AI stop you from feeling like a skilled bounty hunter, making it ultimately feel like you're shooting sump rats in a barrel.
At $40 Necromunda: Hired Gun is a bit of the pricey side. In a world where Doom Eternal is regularly on sale for $20, I can’t recommend paying twice that to play an inferior knock-off, even if it is fun with great environmental design. It might be worth picking up right away if you’re a Warhammer 40K fanatic or desperate for more Doom Eternal style action, otherwise wait for a sale, a bundle, or a price cut.
I hope Streum On Studio now gets that time to polish and refine and maybe strip out some of the more egregious concessions to modernity (loot systems in FPSes can get in the bin). Sort all that out and Hired Gun could be one of those games the industry looks back in five years and calls "underrated." Right now though, it isn't underrated. It's just a bit shit.
