Summary: Space Marine is a good game that won't win any awards for groundbreaking gameplay. it's a hack and slash romp that should suffice for a boring weekend. Gameplay is fun but estremely repetive and the story failed to hook me into playing for more than an hour or two at a time. And whats with everyone and everything even the aliens having the same accent?
Definately rent this or buy at cost lower than $65!

Summary: Great game and honestly would give this an easy 8.5/9 if it was more complete. Lack of multiplayer (feels tacked on) and basic lack of things brings the game down to a modest 7 / 7.5 With the addition of better mplayer and more maps I would easily give it a higher score. Great single player did keep me entertained from start to finish and definately some what satisfied with whole gaming experience!
Summary: The game is similar to Gears of war. The gameplay is fun and story is not that exceptional. Its a one time play, didn't check its online functionality perhaps its disabled now that THQ is out of business. But worth trying for its price and good gameplay.
Summary: I picked this game up having never played a warhammer game before, I was interested to see how a fps could fare with a hack n slash thrown into the mix, the result is this, Warhammer 40k Space Marine. Now I have mixed views on this game and i have to say that on release, this game was pretty bad, lots of lag problems and stuff (there still is today if you can even get in a match) and unbalanced classes.
Summary: I am a HUGE warhammer 40k fan. This game was an absolute MUST for me, and so it was purchased. The game itself is true to the 40k universe and the mechanics of the playing are brilliantly accurate. The comedy value of the 'Cockney' Orcs is a sheer delight, and Mark Strong's performance as Captain Titus is award-worthy. The weapon systems are further enhancing to the warhammer experience, and the control system is easy without being pathetic.
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.
Excerpt: I came to this game as a complete novice to the world of Warhammer. I like the whole look of the Space Marines and the hardware but I don't really have any idea of what it's all about. The game initially looked very similar to Gears of War with it's imagery of future warfare against monsters setting out to destroy Mankind. And playing the game also has that feel in terms of the cut-scenes and graphics. But the gameplay itself is sadly lacking in comparison to GoW.
