Necromunda: Underhive Wars Critic Reviews

View All (16 total)

While we would have preferred to see an adaptation of the grunnier 90s tabletop game, Necromunda: Underhive Wars is still a thorough, faithful adaptation of a Games Workshop classic. Its strategic skirmishing gameplay can prove rewarding, but it's clunky and gets bogged down by technical issues and stodgy pacing. Necromunda fans will delight in being able to create their own Underhive mob though casual fans of the genre may want to stay clear if they're not particularly fussed about Warhammer 40K.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars has potential, but never quite lives up to it thanks to slow-paced battles and dodgy AI.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars has an engaging sandbox filled with a trove of missions and operations, as well as gang customization. Unfortunately, its linear campaign leaves a lot to be desired, and its own combat mechanics remain egregiously flawed and underwhelming no matter the content you attempt to tackle.

Necromunda: Underhive Wars is a disappointment on all fronts, a disaster on both the technical and the gameplay side.
