If you like 80s shooters, you should play Project Warlock. It plays great, it has a lot of content and it knows how to bring that frantic action back.

Project Warlock is a fun, affordable ($14.99 USD) homage to a bygone era of first-person shooters that did not hold your hand and only allowed you to progress after you earned it. Fast-paced gameplay, tight, secret-filled levels, a fitting soundtrack, and sprite-based graphics all add up to a game that feels ripped from another era, while introducing a few ideas of its own to keep things fresh. Some balancing issues and an occasionally-glitchy weapon wheel hardly detract from what is ultimately a modern blast from the past.

A sharp retro shooter with a compelling progression system and satisfying fast-paced combat, Project Warlock is an easy recommendation for anyone looking for an easily accessible blaster which does more than just seek to emulate its classical inspirations.

Project Warlock is a flawed concoction, but its fun factor will ultimately cast a captivating spell over its players. The repetitively catchy soundtrack gets you pumped, the weapon choices are impactful, and the enemy-stage design work is utterly terrific. While it will not win over newcomers with its standoffish presentation, this project should give fans of classic DOOM and the recent Ion Fury something to dig into.

Other than some incommodious bugs and a lackluster story, Project Warlock on PS4 is a stylistic gem, with an incredible soundtrack, that pays homage to its predecessors while providing an extremely high skill ceiling.

Project Warlock is a worthy tribute to the shooters from the nineties, with truly challenging gameplay and RPG elements. The game lacks personality though and some features – the weapon wheel chief among them – don’t really work as well as they should. Fun, but not exactly great.

The game isn’t without its charms in the moment, but when its inspirations are so readily available, it doesn’t really have much to offer against the real deal.

Fast, fun, addictive! A very satisfying game, which clearly aims to deliver pure joy of shooting while sweeping levels. One can say: like in the good old days, but no, it’s a solid game, not exploiting your retro sentiment. But feeding it a lot if you want!

Was expecting it to be much better. This just isn’t on par with games like ion fury or wrath. Even the anniversary of duke nukem 3d is better than this. So its not cause I dont like the genre but this isnt fun. The levels are boring, enemies are not much better. Guns are not fun either, lot of magic stuff.
