Summary: Lot's of fun, but I suggest using a game controller if you have one. My X-box 360 USB controller worked perfectly. I'm an older gamer (>50), and this game was very challenging for me even on the easy setting. So I ended resorting to a trainer (I use a pay service). Even so, the game was a lot of fun, nicely staged and again "challenging".
Summary: I player single player on PC with keyboard and mouse. I didn't have any problems with the Steam system on my Vista system. Though the game seems a bit cartoonish while you are going through the training scenes it gets much more serious later on. The artwork is very detailed and the acting is good. Very British. You will slug it out from beginning to end and enjoy perfecting your combo moves.
Summary: Loved the game. Game play is unique. A bit clunky at first but not so bad as to turn me off. Just took a second or two to adjust. The graphics are great. I like the story. Its a freaking space marine. For anyone who loves warhammer this is a must. The only thing is, online is dead. so it gets a 4. Apparently there never were dedicated servers, but you can still get together with buddies and set up your own matches. For the campaign, its worth the 10 bucks.
Summary: The multiplayer is super fun but it got old after awhile from the limited quantity of maps in multiplayer. Single player gets boring pretty fast. It was worth the $6 I paid since we did play it for quite a bit for a few weeks and we'll eventually return to it and play it again at some point.
Summary: Game has a nice blend of melee and ranged combat. There are still people around to play online too. Don't bother with the DLC's through Steam unless you can get them at a discount, since it can be difficult to find a game with the new maps/mode. All the DLC weapons are purely cosmetic.
Summary: I purchased Space Marine due to its huge discount and did not expect much. But I managed to play the game from start to finish and had a lot of fun doing so. The game being somewhat confusing had me stuck on different environments. This could get somewhat aggravating but the game has great animation and boss battles that made me feel like a hardcore gamer. It may not be the greatest action game, but it does deliver some exciting gameplay.
