Not bad. But nothing special.
2 December 2013
Summary: I was entertained for entirety of the game. If it was any longer I would have lost interest. The combos and such were entertaining the first handful of times used, after that it was a little old.
Summary: I loved the Dawn of War games, and this is in the 40K univerise, for the record I don't play the mini game, but I'm not a fan of the first person shooter type of games, so while it's fun to play, it's not really my style.
Summary: The game is short, really short for a warhammer 40k game. it takes around 6 hours to beat the campaign on hard, mroe if youre going to look for everything and less if you dont care about the collectibles. The online is fun, but with the game having been out for a while, there is hardly anyone to play with. the DLC for multiplayer is purely there to make money, and is no where near worth the price.
Summary: I've never played any of the Warhammer series. Not a big fan of RTS games, but this game is fun; albeit a little repetitive. I think you have to know the Warhammer lore to fully understand the caveat of the setting and story, but it's not hard to comprehend. You are the good guys, Orks are the bad ones. This review is based on the single-player experience. Space Marine is a basic 3rd person-shooter with the ability to melee mixed in.
Great execution but sheer repetition drags the game down a lot

Summary: The Good: Gory and satisfying combat, lots of fun weapons to use, great characters, story, and voice acting, multiplayer is fun for awhile The Bad: Same enemies and combat forever, no intense scripted events, can't use the Titan, multiplayer gets boring after awhile, only two modes, gets extremely difficult towards the end The Warhammer series, being an extremely expensive table top game, has grown to be more popular as an RTS game than anything else.
Excerpt: Warhammer is no longer a franchise solely for tabletop nerds or fiction bookworms since their model-based hobby game was computerised and stylised. Usually best known for their Real Time Strategy work, such as the excellent Company of Heroes, Warhammer: Dawn of War, but most importantly the groundbreaking Homeworld Series, Relic is a safe and smart pair of hands.
Pros: Great visuals and sound, modestly acts out the warhammer world
Cons: Somewhat repetitive if you're not entertained by the punchy gameplay
Summary: A good game for a great price. Anyone that loves action games will be thrilled especially with the sound of the bolter. I don’t think that there is any other game out there with better weapon sound. You will find yourself dying a lot because you will want to stick with the bolter and the heavy bolter and ignore all other weapons. And of course there is the brutal brilliant melee finishers.
Summary: I bought this for my husband, so his review of the game was - it is not as good as the other war hammer games. He was disappointed with it and was glad we only paid £13.00 and not the full price - as it is not worth the full price.
