Space Hulk – Review (PC)

Voletic
30 August 2013
  • Conclusion: While I feel that the developers have done little to actually add to the game there is one thing that is worthy of note. When you move one of your space marines through these tiny passageways you are given their perspective. It helps with immersion I feel.
  • Pros: Faithful to the original board game., Mounted cam effect helps with realism.
  • Cons: Ugly kill animations., Does not allow you create your own levels/content., Does not feel finished.

Expert Review

28 August 2013
  • Summary: Adapting a board game for the PC is a tough task. Developers are faced with two big questions. Do we play it straight and narrow and just port the basic game? Or do we take advantage of all that the computer has to offer and rev things up with glitzy graphics and new features?
  • Pros: Design is true to the original Space Hulk board game, Great tactical depth due to the smart core rules system, Tense and absorbing mission design
  • Cons: Very slow moving with unskippable animations, Rules overly dependent on limited movement and attack options, Second-rate production values, Limited multiplayer options

Space Hulk (2013)

Strategy Informer
23 August 2013
  • Conclusion: Full Control have done a very faithful recreation of the board game, and with a few tweaks it could have been fairly decent. If they'd have dared to step outside of the restrictions of the original it could have been even better. It still is a fun game, but it is very rough around the edges.

  • Excerpt: Space Hulk on the Personal Computer and Macintosh came from a board game. Not all board games can make good video games. Different people will have a different vision of what a video game version of a board game will look like. What does not change is the core content of the game, and how it looks.

Space Hulk review

Gameplanet
26 September 2013
  • Summary: Space Hulk is remarkably faithful to the source material, something that works for and against it in equal measure. Altogether the game shows potential but feels undercooked.
  • Pros: Captures the feeling of the Warhammer 40K setting very nicely. Mostly nice to look at. Simple board game mechanics still work pretty well.
  • Cons: Too many bugs, glitches and oversights in evidence. Lack of map variety and tactical options soon wears thin. Elements of graphical presentation not up to scratch. AI opponents pose little challenge.

Game Review: Space Hulk [PC]

push-start.co.uk
25 August 2013
  • Excerpt: Space Hulk the board game was released in 1989 as part of the Warhammer 40K universe. This might not mean much to some, but to people with a little too much imagination like me, it was a large part of my ‘social’ calendar. For those of you who aren’t familiar, let me give you a little tour.
  • Pros: - Rules are faithful to the boardgame.
  • Cons: - More bugs than Starship Troopers

  • Conclusion: Ich habe damals die eine oder andere Stunde mit dem Brettspiel Space Hulk verbracht. Daher nehme ich mir einfach mal heraus, behaupten zu können, dass die Umsetzung für den PC gut gelungen und vor allem verdammt nahe am Original ist.
  • Pros: Sehr genaue Umsetzung der Brettspielvorlage, Leicht zugängliche Spielmechanik, Trotz simpler Würfelmechanik einige taktische Freiräume, Guter Mehrspielermodus
  • Cons: Geringer Umfang, Entspricht nur teilweise modernen Rundenspielstandards, Präsentation insgesamt etwas mau, Editor noch nicht enthalten
