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.
Summary: " Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine " is a fantastic piece of fan service that offers an amazing action game in its own right with beautiful art and audio design. The blend of guns and melee is executed better here than in any other game I can think of, and the rich fiction is boiled down well to appeal to a new audience, with plenty of nods to devotees through out.
Excerpt: Players fill the boots of Titus, a captain in the Ultramarines chapter of the Space Marines. He and his compatriots are tasked with landing on Graia, a Forge World that has been all but conquered by the Orks. Your initial objective is to keep a gigantic Titan fighting machine out of the Orks' hands, but as always the situation quickly becomes more complicated. It's not spoiling anything, really, to say that Chaos eventually becomes involved.
Excerpt: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com Relic Entertainment has been following an odd progression with its Warhammer 40,000 games. In the first one, the real-time strategy title Dawn of War , you built bases and controlled dozens of units at a time. Rather than increase that scale in Dawn of War II , Relic actually went in the opposite direction, focusing on small squads and doing away with base-building entirely.
Conclusion: Space Marine impressed the heck out of me, especially considering the fact that the last time we saw Relic develop for a console, it was the abysmal Outfit from back in 2006. Since then, they have honed their craft, working on PC only and cranking out strictly strategy titles in the form of four more in the Warhammer universe along with the fantastic Company of Heroes franchise.
Excerpt: “As our bodies are armoured with Adamantium, our souls are protected with our loyalty. As our bolters are charged with death for the Emperor’s enemies, our thoughts are charged with his wisdom. As our ranks advance, so does our devotion, for are we not Marines? Are we not the chosen of the Emperor, his loyal servants unto death?
Conclusion: Estupendo juego de Relic que tiene poquitas cosas, pero las que tiene son muy buenas y, sobre todo, divertidas. Gráficamente no sorprende pero sus combates y puesta en escena es muy acertada. ¡Genial!
Pros: Las armas, los combates cuerpo a cuerpo y el ritmo de los enfrentamientos con los Orkos...
Cons: Gráficamente no sorprende y se echa en falta una pizquita de rol, como en los juegos de PC.
