Rogueside brings us a side scrolling Dakka-fest with Warhammer 40K: Shootas, Blood and Teef where it’s time to paint the world green!
It’s not often where players have the chance to play as an Ork and Rogueside have provided that experience. Not only that but it feels like it is the perfect greenskin experience. Warhammer 40K: Shootas, Blood and Teef follows up to four Ork players as they seek revenge on the Ork Boss that betrayed them. This Boss kicks your character out of the gunner seat of the Dakkajet you were in. This perilous fall puts you in the middle of a fight with your fellow Orks, Astra Militarum, Genestealer Cults and more.
Visually the game reminds me of the classic Metal Slug games but with actual cinematic scenes that are high quality and hilarious. The team behind these scenes really need to turn this into an animated series to be added to the library of shows on Warhammer+. The controls at the start of the game felt very clunky, specifically in relation to the jump button. On Xbox One you jump by hitting Left Trigger, or LT, and this felt weird to say the least. Thankfully they offer controller options where you can assign the buttons however you want! Almost no game overs this level of flexibility in the controls and Rogueside knocked it out of the damn park with this feature alone.
The game offers gorgeous visuals, hilarious dialogue, amazing button mapping and an overall experience that is fun as hell. If you are a fan of Warhammer or Orks themselves this game is going to be more than just enjoyable, you’re gonna love it.
