Editors’ Notes

Whoever came up with the idea of blending futuristic wars with the ancient game of chess is our kind of crazed genius. The mix of turn-based movement and Warhammer’s grisly violence proves deeply satisfying, whether you’re playing classic mode (more like traditional chess) or regicide mode (where units get special abilities like psychic powers and health regeneration). Regicide’s campaign tells a surprisingly rich story, and stunning graphics add intensity to the bloody clashes between orks and space marines.

Can’t ‘Click to continue.’

Edit: The game no longer functions, crashing shortly after connecting to Game Center. I can not play it at all anymore...

This game is great fun, but recently I installed it on my iPad and now whenever I attempt to play the Training, or even the Skirmish mode it requires me to advance through what I assume is a series of prompts, (though I have only seen the first, as per the issue.) No matter where I tap, or how many times I restart the app or re-download it, I can not advance to the next prompt. Hopefully that will change, because if not I simply will no longer be able to play Skirmish games...

Great game

I have not tried the online . Simple story, nothing mind blowing and unique gameplay ( more so considering it’s a Warhammer game). I won’t lie, the campaign had moments which were unfair and anger inducing (last mission of main campaign for example) but still beatable. And after you are done with the game and dlc you will feel god like. I would say Warhammer fans will have the most fun but due to a easy story even a non fan can understand and fun gameplay which makes every piece defeated on the board feel awesome. And I mean come space marine of the well known blood angels chapter vs orks with just a hint of another race later in the game (won’t spoil it), no going wrong with that. If you can tough out the few hard missions I would say this game is worth it whether your a hardcore fan such as myself or just a casual gamer.
