Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine (Xbox 360)

 

If you're a Warhammer 40K fan, you've dreamed of taking up a chainsword and carving Orks into bloody chunks of flesh and bone. Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine plants you in the heavy boots of an Ultramarine and lets you do just that. The viscera fly in...

Warhammer 40k: Space Marine

 

A few years in the making, THQ and Relic have come together to make what might just be the best Warhammer incarnation yet.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

 

Warhammer 40000 is one of the world's biggest tabletop miniature games. Apparently, after 39,999 failed attempts, Games Workshop has helped create a solid hobby for players and collectors alike on try 40K. Solid enough for THQ to get on board and...

Review: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

 

Space Marines in the Warhammer 40,000 universe are awesome. They're stronger than normal humans, better armed and more armored than regular soldiers. They also border on immortal since they age far slower than normal humans and are far harder to kill....

simple controls, story is pretty good, gorgeous visuals, solid RPG-style multiplayer, high level of customization in the multiplayer

Hit detection can go weird, Chaos really just seems kind of tacked on in the story, very linear and ultramarines again

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine (Xbox 360) Review

 

You would think the video game based off of the tabletop game that brought the entire genre to gaming would be better than every game that's copied it since...

Given that Relic has all but made a career out of doing Warhammer 40k games and the fact that Warhammer 40k is also the inspiration (whether they like it or not) to a lot of the Space Opera/Space Marine games we have this generation it’s just...

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

 

And herein lies a Gears of War clone that has far more in common with Halo than Epic's epically brown stop-and-popper.

Overall, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is a refreshingly simple, straight forward and fun shooter. There are no gimmicks, no cover mechanic, no moral choices, and no single-player customization. It’s just shoot, melee, toss grenade, then repeat until...

Warhammer 40k: Space Marine

 

THQ and Relic have done a great job recreating the look and feel of the Warhammer universe. Filled with a well done soundtrack and the amount of cheesy voice acting you'd expect, this is the same universe you've known for decades.

I rate this game at most at 7, no more... this game is way too decent & I believe, Relic should make another exp for DoW2 to add Tau + Necrons + Dark Eldar + Daemonhunter instead wasting their limited budget for many so so projects like Space Marines...

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

 

A new computer franchise launch for the miniatures game pumps up the action for newbies and old hands alike.

While it certainly has its weaknesses, Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is well-done overall. The animation is sharp, and the autosave and lack of load-screens keep players engaged and pumped-up. The voice acting is solid, but the sound effects are...

Review: Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine

 

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....

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine Review

 

Darkness crowds the world. Countless foes, alien and human alike, threaten the might of the Imperium of Man. The Emperor, once the last shining beacon of all that humanity strives to be...

Visceral, engaging gameplay ; Lots of fan service for 40k devotees ; Great art direction and set pieces ; Incredible customization feature

Some occasional visual glitches ; Not much variety in mission structure ; Thin story for the uninitiated ; Multiplayer is too derivative

Darkness crowds the world. Countless foes, alien and human alike, threaten the might of the Imperium of Man. The Emperor, once the last shining beacon of all that humanity strives to be, survives only as a husk; kept alive by a failing mechanical...
