Hellbound has potential, and will surely find an audience for both its nostalgia and its challenge.

The team at Saibot Studios have made exactly what they promised to their Kickstarter backers, but I was left wanting more.

If you're hankering for more of that simple, unfettered Doom action, Hellbound may well scratch your itch.

Hellbound is a fun shooter that's got all the hallmarks of what made the 90s FPS genre so great. Unfortunately, just like the 90s games before it, it's pretty dated in both optimization and graphics. There's a large number of bugs and game-breaking glitches to be experienced, all of which tarnish what is otherwise an incredible experience.

Hellbound has really good movement and the texture quality looks nice, but it's insanely short, the level design is mediocre, and there's nothing here that FPS fans haven't seen done better for decades.

An earnest but empty love letter to Quake and Duke Nukem 3D that never gets around to doing anything to call its own.

Bottomline, all things considered, if you’re looking for a fun, fast, short-lived, throwback FPS game, Hellbound is definitely worth considering. Just don’t expect too much out of it and you’ll find your time and money well spent.
