Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
2 September 2013
Summary: Warhammer 40,000, the tabletop game in which sci-fi depictions of fantasy creatures battle it out in a grim, perpetually violent future, lends itself well to the world of videogames. In fact, one can be quite certain it's inspired a fair few.
Conclusion: In a year of big-hitters, Space Marine is one hell of a surprise. The single-player campaign is meaty and full of confidence, backed up by a multiplayer realm that adds to the game's longevity.
Conclusion: It could use some fine tuning but it's a great first entry for the series and I can't wait to see where things go. The campaign could give more of a reason to come back but you'll be hard-pressed to find a better multiplayer game out there.
Excerpt: In the year 40,000, mankind’s empire stretches across known space. Countless worlds, we are told, have come under the emperor’s protection, and presumably the vast majority of them are doing perfectly well, thank you very much.
Pros: Immersive, Captures the 40K feel, Balanced progression
Conclusion: Warhammer fan or not, if you enjoy third person action games, you are bound to like Space Marine. There's a lot Relic can do with this franchise in third person, so here's to the start of an exciting new franchise.
Summary: If you're a Warhammer 40K fan, you've dreamed of taking up a chainsword and carving Orks into bloody chunks of flesh and bone. Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine plants you in the heavy boots of an Ultramarine and lets you do just that. The viscera fly in this third-person shooter/melee hybrid.
Pros: Captures the brutality of the Warhammer 40K universe, Entertaining mix of shooting and melee action, It's fun to don a jump pack and stomp on Orks
Cons: The mindless slaughter lacks variety, Dull story, dull characters, Lame final boss
