Warhammer 40,000 Shootas Blood & Teef review

Shootas, Blood & Teef is Finally Available on PlayStation Consoles

Shootas, Blood & Teef is a Warhammer 40,000 game that you truly don’t need to be a fan of the property to enjoy.

Sure, it helps if you’re familiar with the world and its denizens, but it just adds extra flavour to the experience rather than being crucial to it. Playing as an Ork with a chip on your shoulder, there’s only one thing to care about in Shootas, Blood & Teef: shooting pretty much anything that moves on your quest for revenge. Whether it’s a human clad in armour or a menacing-looking Genestealer, why should you care?

Developed by the studio behind Guns, Gore & Cannoli, Shootas, Blood & Teef has taken its sweet time arriving on PlayStation consoles. But as they say, good things come to those who wait. This side-scrolling, twin-stick shooter is a hell of a lot of fun, challenging players to navigate their way through a range of environments. There are platforms to be negotiated, switches to pull, items to collect, and hordes of enemies to obliterate. What more could you want?

Our review of the Switch version of Shootas, Blood & Teef pretty much covers why we love it so much. But it also highlighted some issues that are thankfully alleviated on more powerful hardware. The occasional frame rate drops, for example, are smoothed out, making for a more fluid and consistent playing experience. Loading times are also dramatically reduced. Needless to say, Shootas, Blood & Teef is simply more enjoyable on PS5.

It’s still not perfect, though. Loading screens still unceremoniously just pop up as you play, and there’s no use of unique DualSense features. But regardless, the core of what’s on offer here is worth the investment for fans of side-scrolling shooters. Especially so if they enjoy them tinged with humour. And while the main campaign of Shootas, Blood & Teef can be blasted through within a matter of hours, multiple difficulty levels and Ork classes present some replayability.

Multiplayer is an option, too. Up to four players can blast their way through the game’s campaign in co-op, online or off. And those seeking out some competitive action can dive into versus mode. Overall, there’s enough to sink your teeth into here to justify the purchase, especially if you’re going to play it with friends, family members or even complete strangers.

So, whether you’re a fan of Warhammer 40,000 or not, if you have a PlayStation console and feel the need to run and gun your way to revenge, Shootas, Blood & Teef is well worth playing. Sure, it feels a little rough around the edges in some regards, but its action is thoroughly enjoyable and its humour will genuinely put a smile on your face.

Warhammer 40,000: Shootas, Blood & Teef is available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch and PC.
