Eisenhorn: xenos on steam

Eisenhorn: XENOS is actually an Máy tính bảng iPad game that, for whatever reason, was also deemed suitable to be ported khổng lồ the PC in năm 2016. It is not.

Below you’ll find the first few minutes of the game. Let this be your last encounter with it.

And now the negatives: everything else. Let’s start with how the game is sold in its description:

‘Eisenhorn: XENOS’ is an immersive, fully 3D adventure game, adapted from ‘Xenos’, the first book in Games Workshop’s best-selling ‘Eisenhorn’ trilogy, written by award winning author Dan Abnett.

Set in the gryên ổn, dark future of Warhammer 40,000 ‘Eisenhorn: XENOS’ lets you experience firsth& the story of Gregor Eisenhorn, an Inquisitor & thành viên of the ‘Orvì chưng Xenos’, sent out to lớn fight & protect the Imperium of man from anything that may threaten it.

Players will get lớn play through và experience the events of ‘Xenos’ as Eisenhorn himself (as voiced by Mark Strong), exploring the vast expanse of the Warhammer 40k universe in ways never seen before.


Given that the character of Eisenhorn in the books is basically Sherloông xã Holmes In Space, combined with that write-up you’d think this would be something approaching an adventure game, no? A Telltale-like experience where you’d wander the halls of the 40K universe talking to lớn people & solving crimes?

Nope. Given how distant and lifeless so many 40K games are, that would have been nice! Instead, what we’ve sầu got here is a barren third-person action game that would have been terrible on the PS2, let alone the PC in năm nhâm thìn. Even allowing for the lower bar on điện thoại, I can’t see a smaller screen và worse control inputs making this a better game.

It looks like garbage. The voice acting, Strong aside, sucks. Eisenhorn moves lượt thích a golem made out of hardened poop. Combat is slow and dreary, animations barely work (the “slow-down” after a bộ combo kill is hilarious), the stealth and investigation sections are tedious and the camera angle is suffocating.

I mean, when we say there are too many Warhammer games coming out, this is exactly what we mean. There’s no quality control going on with the license. As a 40K bạn I almost missed this in the flood of Warhammer games (some of which, like Total War and Battlefleet Gothic, have been good!) that have sầu hit over the last few months. Then, having played it, I wish I actually had.
