Editors’ Notes

In this installment of Games Workshop’s vast Warhammer universe, you command a squad of space marines in intense turn-based battles. In the midst of all the deliberate tactics and careful maneuvers, tension frequently spikes as overwhelming enemy forces attack, giving the gameplay an almost tower-defense feel. Across the 40 missions, Warhammer fans will delight in collecting an extensive roster of weapons, gear, and marines to deploy in action.

Fun, re-playable, and interesting. Could be expanded...

This game is by far one of the best games I own. The story line is acceptable, the action is wonderfully animated, and the missions bring variety. There is also no pressure on the player to spend any money, like the games that make you dish out hundreds of dollars just to scrape by. I didn't know that there were even in-app purchases until I had gotten far into the game. However, I feel like in the missions more pressure should be placed upon the player. I've only played on Normal difficulty, but a time limit could be placed on the player. Otherwise, I will just peep out of cover, blast some Tyrannids in the face, and hide again. This brings me no to my next point: there should be a system implemented so that you could fire behind cover. I wouldn't mind an accuracy decrease and Devastator Marines not being able to, but this would save me lots of AP for the fighting to be more fast paced. Lastly, I would like more to be added. Anything to make the game deeper, like back stories for rare players, hidden lore or something of the sort, as well as more dialogue. New game modes, like pass and play, multiplayer, or survival would make the game so much better. That would take it from a good game, to a great one.

40k since '88 ,


Rodeo Designers killed it on this one. Nice work. Now that I've played the campaign through (only on easy so far), I'd say it's UNDERpriced. Not only does this game give an excellent feel of the 40k Universe, but it plays exactly the way the original "Space Hulk" game felt and that is STILL one of the best board games made. But this incarnation is better because all the mechanics are there without having to remember anything. It's also an excellent tactical challenge on some levels. I've only finished the easy campaign, but I've gotten to know my little warriors and want to keep them fighting! The skills and equipment, again, are so faithful to the source material AND a lot of fun to customize. Obviously I love the 40k universe (I'm dying for some Eldar) but had to move away from the tabletop games because I don't have the time. This game lets me play on the fly, with just the right amount of "I hope they don't die on this mission!" without any "Ah crap! Well that was a waste of time!" Well done. I'm really blown away by everything: visuals, sound, variables, tactics, rewards, in-app purchases are truly optional. All of it. [note: do NOT quit a mission, just turn off game or phone, you'll be right where you left off]
