TOOLS YOU CAN USE advertisementIf you've ever played the Warhammer tabletop game, you're going to be intrigued by this video game version. And even if you haven't, if you enjoy military games with more to do than just kill people, you'll find that...

Gone is the healing mechanic used in the campaign. Stuns occur but on a much reduced time frame which further increased the already fast pace play, and I have yet to see a campaign style execution, though I experienced firsthand plenty of ‘normal’...

Overall, things could have been a whole lot better with Space Marine, but that doesn’t mean it’s totally lost or broken. Mostly the letdowns are seen by the fan who knows more than the game allows a player to see, and the rest of the disappointments...

Growing up it was almost impossible for me to not hear about Warhammer 40k. Between the novels and more importantly the tabletop games, I’ve always loved the whole idea and scale behind the Warhammer 40k universe. The transition from tabletop to video...

If you are a fan of Warhammer 40k, or of Relic's acclaimed Dawn of War RTS series, you no doubt have been salivating at the prospect of getting up close and personal with a power-hammer and some squishy Orks. Relic has finally brought us a...

Anyone who knows anything about the Warhammer world knows that the Ultramarines are the near immortal destroyers of Chaos. When things get too nasty and platoons are getting wiped out you call in a handful of Space Marines and watch them even the...

Space Marine lays some excellent ground work for a Warhammer 40,000 shooter and offers some of gaming's most spectacular fights. It's too thin on the content to feel like the definitive 40K action game,...

It's so easy to forget Space Marine's tabletop roots. As an adaptation, this title does an admirable job of bringing the battles of Warhammer 40,000 to life, exciting real-world players and enticing newcomers alike. The brutal encounters may shock...

Space Marine may stumble here and there, but manages to remain entertaining from start to finish. For every moment where a character gets stuck on part of the environment, has an animation that breaks, or just randomly pops into the world, I’m left...

Space Marine is just endless war. Thanks to powerful weapons and excellent pacing, that war is pretty damn...

THQ has been churning out Warhammer 40K titles at the rate of one per year since 2003. And even though many of these titles were well received by the community, nearly all of them have been relegated to the RTS genre. But with Warhammer 40,000: Space...

International Review By PC-tidningen on 80

I detta universum klampar de så kallade Space Marines omkring i enorma stridsrustningar vars storlek borde göra det omöjligt att röra sig i dem.Här har krigandet upphöjts till religion, och självtillräckligheten är så stor att det blir medvetet...

International Review By Komputer for Alle on 80

I dette univers tonser de såkaldte Space Marines omkring i tonstunge kæmperustninger, der fysisk burde være umulige at bevæge sig i. I dette univers er krigsførelse ophøjet til et religiøst anliggende, og selvhøjtideligheden er så overdrevet, at det...

International Review By PCMweb on 80

Warhammer 40000: Space Marine is een hele leuke actie-game die met name voor Warhammer liefhebbers echt een aanrader is. Gamers die niet bekend zijn met dit universum zullen nog steeds met een vermakelijke game te maken hebben, maar zullen niet veel...

International Review By GameCaptain on 73

Es macht anfangs echt viel Spaß sich durch die Orkhorden zu ballern und zu schnetzeln. Wenn die Orks reihenweise in herrlich übertriebenen Blutfontänen zerplatzen, wird es dem Imperator ganz warm ums Herz. Schade nur, dass dem Spiel auf halber Strecke...

Test - Warhammer 40K - Space Marine" Space Marines? Genau, das sind doch die Standard-Truppen der Terraner aus „StarCraft“ – man kann sie in der Kaserne bauen, sie kosten 50 Mineralien und haben eine durchschnittliche Lebensdauer von 19 Sekunden auf...

International Review By Gamers on 77

„Warhammer 40.000: Space Marine“ ist stilistisch eng an die Vorlage angelehnt und spricht nicht zuletzt aufgrund der tief in das Universum verankerten Geschichte in erster Linie Fans an. Stilechte Waffen und die atmosphärischen und bombastischen...
