Gameplay: The single player game play is very fun and addicting. I was very impressed with the blend of Third person shooter and Action melee combo gameplay. I don't know if this is the first game to do this but it is the first I have ever played and it works so well that it makes you feel like other developers need to follow suite.

Visuals: The campaign was breathtaking and did an excellent job of bringing the warhammer world alive in a new and interesting format.

Single player campaign: I often start single player games and get a little uninspired in the middle and don't finish them but I am on my 3rd play through of the single player campaign for spacemarine. The game does a good job of giving the player the choice of how you want to fight and each weapon brings different flavor and gameplay elements. You can almost play the game as purely a shooter if you prefer or you could choose to slaughter the enemies of man almost solely up close and personal with melee weapons and combos and either way is loads of fun.

Multiplayer: Multiplayer is class based and very fun at times tho there were some problems with connecting early on they seem to have been addressed now. The biggest gripe I have about multiplayer is the limited amount of maps and game modes. Still the ground work is laid for DLC to only make the experience better and better.
As of the date I'm writing this review a big piece of the multi player experience (co-op) is still due to be patched into the game very soon and I am extremely excited for it.

Overall I would give the single player experience a 9
The multiplayer at the time of this review I would give a 7.5 but I expect that to jump up when co-op is released if it is anything like last stand from dowII
