Summary: It's not the best 40K game. As the title suggests you would really have to be a 40K fan to appreciate it. I'll at least start with the good points. It has some detail to it. You play as several units including neophytes (Scouts), Marines, Dreadnaughts, Land Raiders and Terminators then on top of that these units have a standard weapon as well as one customisable weapon i.e.
Summary: When I ordered this game I was not expecting it to be anythinng special, but I am a fan of the Warhammer 40K games so I gave it a go. I can truly say that I loved this game, and I would reccommend it to anyone looking for a tactical turn-based game, or those with an interest in Warhammer 40K.
Summary: Firstly I would just like to say I have always been a fan of the 40k universe but this is far from a biased review. I picked this game up expecting it to be an improved version of the old pc game, Chaos Gate. Squad Command is no where near as good. Flaws: -No camera angle options mean that it can be hard to take in the surroundings.
Summary: I bought this game for my 11 year old son, who's just starting to get into Warhammer 40K. He's very happy with it and has a lot of fun playing it, both solo and multiplayer with a friend who's at a similar level. I suspect it'll get less interesting as he gets more involved in the tabletop game, but as an introduction for a novice it's a good game.
Summary: This is a great game, but a little difficult to get to grips with at first. I heartily recommend this game for any fans of the tabletop game, though I was a bit disappointed that you cannot play as the Chaos Space Marines. Even so it is a great way to while away the time between Gaming Sessions and to refine your Squad Tactical moves. Overall a very cool game, but not as Awesome as it could have been.
Summary: well, I completed the game about half an hour ago. I have had the Game longer than my DS....yeh i bough thte DS to play the game! i am a hard core fan but i am in no way a bias fan boy!. I did realy enjoy the game, however it can be very boring. I have had the game for over a year and went through bouts of playing completing 3 levels and then never playing again for a month or two.
