Eisenhorn: XENOS is an action adventure, based on the first book of “Eisenhorn” trilogy, written by Dan Abnett. Game takes place in grim and dark Warhammer 40.000 universe and tells a story of Gregor Eisenhorn. An inquisitor, whose aim is to protect citizens of the Empire from any danger.
There you will take part in real time battles, in which you will be allied with other charachters. Every one of them increases you personal skill. Players also get access to hundreds of weapons and accessories. There is 10 hours gameplay and Mark Strong’s voice for Eisenhorn.
If you are looking for a crazy action game with non-stop shooting, there is none. If you are looking for a slasher like Space Marine, there is none too. We didn’t find high-end graphics here either. What we did find was a story and a rare opportunity to become an Inquisitor and feel this grim darkness Warhammer is filled with.
This game may be worth buying it. It can be interesting for both Warhammer fans and people, who know nothing about it. Some can find a detective story there and some will just look at a picturized variant of what we’ve read in the book.
