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.
Excerpt: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War follows the exploits of the Blood Ravens, a Space Marine chapter whose past is shrouded in mystery. Brother Captain Gabriel Angelos and his faithful sub-commander, the powerful psyker Librarian Isador Akios, bring the Blood Ravens to bear on a growing Ork threat to the planet Tartarus.
Pros: A digital version of the Warhammer 40k, Big scale combat with easy control, Nice graphic & Dynamic animation of units
Cons: Ordinary singleplay campaine, Need more skirmish maps, There is no map editor
Excerpt: To date no PC game has done the Warhammer 40,000 universe justice. Now, a veteran developer studio Relic brings us Dawn of War, a game that captures the essence of Warhammer 40K and sets new standards for the RTS genre.
Excerpt: There are, without pinching too many niches, three different types of people that will play this game: the noob who heard of this relatively high-profile strategy feast and gave it a go, the RTS fanatic looking for a fresh take on an established but not completely familiar universe, and the wary Warhammer tabletop fan looking to debunk or revel in the expanded entertainment corners of the franchise.
