Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine (Xbox 360)

14 October 2007
  • Excerpt: The universe of 40K (Warhammer 40,000) is not new to video gaming, but past efforts at bringing the popular sci-fi tabletop wargame into the console/PC environment have been hit or miss.  Space Marine is the first over-the-shoulder third-person version of 40K to hit the latest generation of gaming hardware.  The effort to remain faithful to the existing flavor of the 40K universe is clear.
  • Pros: Excellent use of established terms and backstory, Simple control setup, Impresive graphics and backgrounds.
  • Cons: Linear storyline, Relatively narrow range of equipment, movement is sometimes awkward.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War – Review

8 September 2007
  • Excerpt: I suspect that there is no genre more rigidly formulaic than Real Time Strategy (RTS) games. Now, this can be said of almost any genre, but the interesting thing about RTS games is how similar the specific actions that the game is made up of are. Start a level with no troops. Build a base. Gather resources. Build a bigger base. Build an army. Crush your enemy with an overwhelming attack. Repeat for the next fifteen years.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War

Game Over Online
11 August 2007
  • Excerpt: Warhammer’s universe is set in what’s called a dystopia – the complete opposite of an ideal and desired utopia. This universe is populated by a number of species, including humans, Orks (the green ones we’ve all come to know and love), an ancient advanced race called the Eldar and those humans who are seduced by evil fairies and gods called Chaos. None of these four get along with each other except in circumstances where they serve both parties’ goals.

  • Excerpt: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War is a science fiction real-time strategy game set in the violent, post-apocalyptic universe of the 41st Millennium. Needless to say, the game is based on the ultra-violent futuristic table-top game. For those who aren't familiar with the 40k universe , here is a bit of info. It's set 40,000 years in the future, in a grim and terrible time where mankind is at constant war with various horrific enemies across the universe.

The Gamers Temple
5 April 2007
  • Excerpt: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War is set in the universe of the popular miniatures war game. This is not the first attempt to bring the world of Warhammer 40,000 to computer gaming – even though the Warhammer universe has a rich mythos and has taken hold of the imaginations of many traditional gamers, the video games versions have been pretty much dull and lifeless. Until now, that is.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War Review

25 October 2006
  • Excerpt: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War, known throughout the online community as DoW, is perhaps the only decent game based on the huge Warhammer 40,000 universe. Sure, Fire Warrior wasn't too bad, and Space Hulk a few years back was ok, but considering what a huge universe the games draw on for inspiration, you'd expect better. A bit like Star Wars games really.

  • Conclusion: The length and linearity of the campaign is the only part of the game that really can be faulted. Warhammer fans might have wanted to see more units and a larger tech tree but taking it purely as a PC RTS game, this is pretty impressive stuff and is sure to be a favourite as an online game for a long time.
