Upcoming Game Review: Warhammer 40k: Space Marine

As you'd expect, I'm a huge fan of Warhammer 40k. A tribute to all the fans of these steel clad juggernaught-style angels of death bent on the protection of the Imperium of Man from the hands of the corrupt Chaos Faction, the numerous Orcs and the plethora of other enemies threatening the future human race, Relic Entertainment and THQ proudly present Warhammer 40k: Space Marine. Having played the various strategic titles of Warhammer, modelled after the tabletop version with which I have minimal experience, I always hoped that I would see an FPS version where you could unleash the Emperor's Wrath at it's fullest.

Sporting traditional bolters and chainswords as expected from space marines, Single Player focuses on the campaign led by Captain Titus of the Ultramarines and his squadmates who provide support, while multiplayer allows the player to choose from a specific class: The all rounded Tactical Marine or the quivalent Chaos Space Marine, the long ranged Devastator Marine/Chaos Havoc or the close quarter combat Assault Marine or equivalent Chaos Raptor.

I hope that this continues to develop and more classes, races and chapters become playable. I'm a personal fan of the Adeptus Mechanicus and Techmarines. And don't forget:

Show me a fortress and I'll show you a ruin.

  2. far out. that was a trip!

  3. man, i love all the lore or history of 40k, but never could get into the tabletop game, just to expensive. Gonna pick this game up though, looks pretty sick.
