“Boomer shooter” is a recent video game genre term used to describe contemporary games that exist as throwbacks to the Doom-inspired era of first-person shooters where speed and firepower were everything. Phantom Fury isn’t the first game to explore this playground, and it won’t be the last, but playing the demo left a good first impression. The visuals are cool, the shooting is good, and protagonist Shelley “Bombshell” Harrison isn’t afraid to throw in a good one-liner when the mood strikes her.
Phantom Fury is coming to PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch and PC this year.
