  • Excerpt: A few years in the making, THQ and Relic have come together to make what might just be the best Warhammer incarnation yet. Our story beings with the deployment of the Ultramarines, a cybernetically and genetically enhanced squad of super-soldiers sent to The Forgeworld to stop a planetary invasion force of Orks. The Orks are there for the Titans, massive walking battle-tanks that can level an entire city.

Warhammer 40K: Space Marine Review

  • Conclusion: Space Marine offers some fun game play that can get dull and monotonous at times but the presentation and soundtrack makes for a tolerable title. Online play allows player to customize their characters as well bring in new players up to speed rather quickly while at the same time not take away too much from veterans. Is it a rental or buy?

Review: Warhammer 40000: Space Marine (Microsoft Xbox 360)

Diehard GameFAN
23 September 2011
  • Summary: : Warhammer 40000: Space Marine is a good reintroduction to the Warhammer 40000 franchise for console gamers after the less than optimal Fire Warrior , and while it’s not a flawless product, all things considered, it’s basically a miracle of a game all the same. The story is heavy handed, lacking in depth and ends on a bad note, but still manages to be somewhat compelling and enjoyable despite, and occasionally because of, these issues.

Very violent sci-fi shooter deals in gory, bloody combat.

Common Sense Media
22 September 2011
  • Summary: Parents need to know that Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is an exceptionally violent third-person shooter that relishes in depicting bloody, gory combat. The player’s titular soldier takes down multiple green-skinned aliens with every swing of his chainsword, and is often covered from head to toe with the blood of his foes. The marines are fighting for a noble cause -- to save humanity -- but they clearly enjoy the violent acts they commit.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
22 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Strategy is well matched with the Warhammer tabletop game, but being a fast paced third-person action game, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine requires much less in the way of thought and, consequently, will be unfamiliar to many fans of the source material. Having developed a number of strategy games set in the universe, it’s also relatively new territory for developer Relic Entertainment, who are otherwise well acquainted with the licence by now and know their stuff when...

  • Excerpt: The Warhammer 40,000 universe is definitely already well established on PCs with the popular Dawn of War series. However consoles are a different story entirely but all that is set to change with Space Marine, a third-person action game from THQ. Taking a big move away from the real-time strategy gameplay of its PC cousin, [...

  • Excerpt: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine will undoubtedly hold the most appeal for players of Games Workshop’s miniatures wargame of the same name. The action game is steeped in its parent game’s mythology, and features many of the units and weapons that fans have spent hours lovingly painting. Fortunately, it isn’t pure fan service: It offers a fast-paced, gory start to a promising new franchise.
