Warhammer 40,000: Boltgun captures the fast-paced action of classic '90s shooters and accentuates it with an assortment of the Space Marines' finest weaponry.

Boltgun is stupendously fun-a treat for Warhammer players and a worthy member of the growing legion of retro shooters.
by Jon Bolding
7 / 10
Retro-shooting and fast-paced arenas suit the Warhammer 40K setting nicely, but Boltgun falls short of greatness because its ideas peter out too quickly. Some good level design and nice environments make up for a lack of variety.
