Good

"Space Marines!"

If you play through this, Orcs screaming "Space Marines!" will forever be stuck in your head. The VO plays over and over again..

Other than that the game is a decent shooter/brawler. Its different in that you occasionally find yourself just smacking enemies up close.

The gameplay feels a bit generic but the world has character. I'm not a Warhammer guy so the universe was all new to me. I imagine fans of warhammer will dig seeing environments and characters.

Might be worth the rental if you're kinda curious about it or if you're a warhammer fan.

There is so much potential for awesomeness in the warhammer 40k universe. Unfortunately, this game does not capitilze on that potential.

I don't understand the decision to go with a third-person platformer focusing on melee tactics.

Also, the characters were a little stiff. I imagine imperial space marines behaving something like the colonial space marines in the Aliens universe. These guys sounded like the type of guys that break combat for tea time.

The controls felt a little wonky too. This really felt like a PS1 game.

If you love warhammer 40k, you'll probably rent it anyway, hoping that you won't feel the same way about it that I do. Good luck with that.
