Showing 1-10 of 15
Decent "Gears of War" clone but lacks Co-Op.

Summary: For fans of tabletop gaming, this game was probably a sort of triumph. Several concepts from the Warhammer franchise have filtered into popular culture but with this game, it becomes more evident where they originated. My ONLY complaint (and it's a big one) is that while this game plays like Xbox's "Gears of War", it lacks cooperative play. That's a huge drawback in this instance that holds me back from a full five-stars.
Summary: I liked the game overall, but somehow id just didn't have the scope of what should be happening in the WH40K universe. Also it was a lot of the same "Head here, fight orks. Head here fight a bigger Ork. Deal with an Ork big bad. Rinse and repeat." I regret to say, I never finished it, perhaps had I stuck with it, I may have been rewarded. I would recommend this to WH40K completists only.
It's strength is the online, it's weakness is the online too!

Summary: First thing you need to know. You get to play a Space Marine from the Ultramarine Chapter in the Warhammer 40k universe. Any geek that played or still plays warhammer 40k will love the novelty of this, as the guns do feel chunky. You space marine does feel like a hard nut, swathing through waves of gretchin and orks. The armoured and heavy weapon orks mid way through do provide a challenge. Then there is the weapons, they feel meaty, powerful.
Summary: The third person hack `n' slash genre seemed to have died a death after its PS2 heyday, but someone had not informed Relic when developing `Warhammer 40k: Space Marine'. This is an old school feeling game with updated graphics. You play Captain Titus, a space marine charged with fending off the Orc hordes and powers of chaos whilst you wait for backup.
Summary: This is a difficult game to review for me. I am a massive fan of just about everything the Games Workshop puts out but the main game is too short. There is the online co-op, which gives you the option to play a customized Space Marine or Chaos Marine and that opens the game up more but i'd hoped for more content in the main game.

Summary: Space Marine is about as simplistic as current generation games get. As Captain Titus (Mark Strong, the narrator of Who Do You Think You Are?) all you really do is go forward and shoot/duel, and it's a long game with nothing much sustain the many miles of bad road. For a 3rd person shooter it's basic stuff. Set on a distant planet filled with Orks it is your duty to wipe them all out.
Summary: To keep it short (I haven't ever played ANY Warhammer-game before): Warhammer 40k reminds of the good ol' days I played Future Cop L.A.P.D. by THQ on my ps1, and it plays the same way: Cause mayhem and destruction with simple god-of-war-like controls while watching a stuborn story-plot.
Summary: I have loved the WH40K universe since the 1980s, so was obviously going to buy this. Now the single player story..... I completed in 3 nights and I'm a bit of a newbie (& rubbish..) on the PS3. I won't play it again, it looked good in parts but essentially left me cold, was expecting a bit more for a 2011 game really. I've got PC games that are long in the tooth with better environments to run around in, like the Jedi Knight games. Now the online bit...
