I liked the overall plot in this game. The story line had its ups and downs but overall not bad. The misson idea was great hopefully the next one they make ( if they make one ) will have all of the WarHammer characters. The online was terrible. It took awhile to get into a match and there is people flying around with jetpacks swinging thier sword at you. They should have made it a little better maybe some more game variety.

This game was a total disappointment. The graphics were good, but that was about it. The gameplay gets really tired - and I used to play tabletop Warhammer so I was pretty excited for it.
The addition of health drops would have helped this game tremendously. To only get health through fatality made this game suffer considering the fatality animations were 4-5 seconds long and you were totally vulnerable throughout the duration of the animation. Because of this, it is hard to actually use 1 of 2 health regens in the game. The other is based on a "rage" bar... which I can tell you sucks to have to burn just to heal prior to the next encounter.
There was no plot to this game, and I played for about 4 hours. It is linear run to this, run to that, now run over here. It feels like you're just constantly running with direction (there is only one direction) but no purpose.
I actually sent this back almost immediately - which I never do. I don't know who rated this game a 8 or 9 of 10, but they're crazy. I wish people would adequately review games instead of just giving out 1's and 10's, I rented this on the 10's I saw... seriously, this game is no better than a 6... I give it a 4.
