Warhammer: Mark of Chaos
8 April 2012
Excerpt: ""Blood for the Blood God!", or "Do you think I could find a purse to go with this mithril plate?" Mark of Chaos is a game which, frankly speaking, would have initiated a meltdown in my computer but for a few brief upgrades ago. It's certainly a very pretty game (judging by the standards of the day) and seemed to have the kind of game mechanics which led on nicely from Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War. Therefore it was with some delight that I pushed ...
Excerpt: "This is a game that seems to be running off the success of the Total War Series and the Dawn of War Franchise. Beyond those two basic relations you will find nothing more to connect them. So lets start checking off that magical list that your making with your mind right now. Warhammer fantasy setting? Check. Lots of Elves and Chaos lords and talk of Magic and the dark gods? Check. Long and engaging gameplay? Ohh, bit of a miss here. You see, this ...
Pros: Graphics are impressive, its Warhammer, good battle animations
Cons: No real replay value, Multiplayer feels tacked on at best
Conclusion: Just bought this, and started playing it....its rubbish, nothing really new about it and there is NO skirmish option, the game play is boring and slightly repetitive, if you've played dawn of war then don't expect it to be similar. My recommendation..
Conclusion: I bought this game as an investment during exam leave. The idea was to have a game that would keep me occupied in the house and out of the pub. All I can say is that this plan did not work.
Conclusion: After looking around and seeing the reveiws of this game (most of which rated it poorly) i decided to approach it with an open mind. The game itself is not that bad, the graphics are pleasing to watch (provided your system is up to the task, loading times are long, even with a good system) and the units are true enough to the warhammer world to become realistic. Where this game falls down is the replayability.
Conclusion: i have to say i liked the game i thought the idea of the leaders was a good one and the graphics or the amount that goese on in one game was good i have played the "dawn of war" games and compared to them i iwll say that this one is much better the armies are true to the actual game and over all i liked it very much thats why i gave it a 5 star rating
Excerpt: "Being a long time warhammer fan I was in two minds about getting this as I had a feeling they wouldn't be able to capture the Warhammer feel to it. Personally I think they haven't and was a little disappointed with it, I’ll let you make your own mind up. ~ Background ~ For many the Warhammer experience started of as either board games or table battles. Basically you would have plastic or lead models of a fantasy nature to battle it out ...
Excerpt: "This game dissapointed me somewhat, as an avid warhammer and strategy game fan I was expecting great things, especially considering the fantastic GW franchises such as Dawn of War. There are 4 playable races, Skaven, Chaos, Empire and Elves and it is possible to play both sides in the campaign. These can also be played in multiplayer where there is a system of selection using gold. The strategic map from where it is possible to upgrade your ...
