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...

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

AV Club
19 September 2011
  • 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.

Warhammer 40K: Space Marine Review

13 September 2011
  • Excerpt: When it comes to sci-fi franchises, few are as criminally under-appreciated by mainstream nerd-type culture as the Warhammer franchise. After years of Relic Entertainment's excellent Dawn of War RTS games on PC garnering only decent (but not amazing) success and the disappointment that EA/Mythic's Warhammer Online turned out to be, I was beginning to wonder if this long-running tabletop gaming franchise was ever going to get the attention it deserved.

  • Conclusion: Relic Entertainment has done a solid job on Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, taking the studio's knowledge of the IP working on the Dawn of War series for PC, and putting it to good use. With some better thought out set-pieces and more variety in the gameplay and visuals, this could have achieved greatness. As it is though, Space Marine feels like the foundations for a barnstorming sequel, and goodness knows it deserves one, as there's massive potential here.

  • Conclusion: Concept: A new look at the Warhammer 40,000 universe that shows off the impressive combat prowess of the ultramarines Graphics: Environments lack points of interest, but the animations are gorgeous, especially on the ork deaths Sound: The voice cast is outstanding and the tribal soundtrack channels the Battlestar Galactica score with its pounding percussion instruments Playability: This game gets better the more you play it.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

Total Xbox
9 September 2011
  • Excerpt: Which new over-the-shoulder shooter features bulky armored soldiers and chainsaw-enhanced weapons? Everyone knows that the Gears of War and Warhammer 40K universes have similarly equipped heroes, so it’s odd to see their latest installments debut weeks apart. Space Marine looks a whole lot like Epic’s popular trilogy, albeit with sleeker world design and a color palette borrowed from Darksiders .
  • Pros: + Fast-paced and remarkably gory combat comes at a constant clip., + Stellar presentation throughout — especially the level design.
  • Cons: ? Who’s bold enough to rock all-pastel armor?
