Battle System

Space Marine features a fluid combat system that allows players to seamlessly switch from ranged to melee weapons without interrupting the flow of combat. Hitting the melee button at any time will result in a close range strike with the equipped hand-to-hand weapon as well as the camera pulling out to melee distance. Pulling either trigger will instantly snap the view back to behind the player’s shoulder ready for precise shooting. These systems are immediately responsive and leave the player in full control at all times. As the player dispatches enemies in Space Marine they will be earning "Fury" which can be used to unleash devastating ranged or melee attacks. The player can use "Fury Marksman" to enter a heightened form of awareness where time seems to slow down allowing them to pick off multiple ranged enemies in the blink of an eye. Alternately the player can opt to utilize their "Fury Strike" up close and personal with a sweeping area of affect attack that will obliterate anything close enough and knock-back and stun more distant foes.

Key Game Features

  • Storm Into Battle - Step fearlessly into the heart of combat as an unstoppable Space Marine. Never hide, never cower, just purge all that stand in your way.
  • Unleash Visible Violent Death - Using an innovative, new combat system, switch seamlessly from high-caliber ranged weapons to devastating close-combat strikes. Taking out an enemy has never been so satisfying.
  • Experience the Dark Future of Warhammer 40,000 - Jump into a rich universe of awe-inspiring landscapes, deadly enemies, immense battles and ruthless annihilation.
  • Take the Battle Online - Form your own Space Marine squad or Chaos Space Marine warband and face off in 8 vs. 8 online matches. Gain experience and unlock new weapons and armor to customize the Devastator, Assault and Tactical Marine classes.

4.0 out of 5 stars From a 40k Enthusiast September 8, 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Some background on me: I am a very active fan of video games, purchasing probably at least two titles a month over the last two years, on average. I am also very familiar with Warhammer 40,000 universe. Some of you may be able to figure out from my 'real name' title, that I have some 'street cred' among the Warhammer 40,000 enthusiasts.

I have so far given Space Marine 4 stars, because I don't think it will fall below that. It is only release date + 2, and I have not fully experienced every aspect that Space Marine has to offer. I will update this over the next week or two as I complete it and venture into the online section.

Regarding game play, people are most likely going to compare this to Gears of War. In fact, despite the fact that Warhammer 40,000 has been around for 30 years, I have heard the term 'ripped-off' when describing this already. There are some similarities, to be sure. For one, you are in third person. You also have a combined use of gun-play and traditional hack'n'slash mechanics. You also tend to be vastly outnumbered.

Where Gears of War is a decidedly different game is the cover system (a la Kill.Switch, et al). I would have liked to see a cover system. In fact, playing a third person shooter without this mechanic today seems odd. My feelings are they did not include it because it would seem like too much of a direct 'rip-off' of Gears of War, there would probably be a lot of interesting clipping errors considering how bulky they are, or mostly like it just seems 'unheroic' for a marine to take cover. I would put my money on the last bit, given the early footage of the game, and the at one point even more idealized stance of marines laying down fire at distant enemies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Warhammer 40k dream come true September 6, 2011
By Brent
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
To start off this game is just plain fun. It is a mix of close combat, and shooting. Anyone can pick it up and have a blast. It is perfect though for anybody that is a fan of the Warhammer 40k universe. I know being a hardcore fan I have always wanted to be an Astrates and just wreak havoc. You can definitely do this. The main campaign does a good job of doing this. There is plenty of action and the story could easily be from one of the 40k novels. The online modes are also a fresh of breath air in an industry that is being swamped with your typical first person shooters. I recommend this game to anyone and everyone that wants to be an unstoppable killing machine.

4.0 out of 5 stars In The Future...There is Only Waaagh(war)... September 8, 2011
By Jason
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This happens to be the first game I've owned of the Warhammer 40k franchise, so when it comes to the lore, I am pretty much in the dark. I know War40k is an RTS game and Table-Top game, but it seems that Warhammer40k has come a long way, now spreading out into the action/shooter genre. Does this Space Marine have what it takes to survive the battle? Well let's find out!

GAMEPLAY
Warhammer40k: Space Marines (War40k from this point on), is a game that hits you with action the moment you start it up. There is very little in the way of downtime besides occasional dialog segments, or transitions into new areas. Right off the bat you will be fighting through masses of Orks to reach your object, picking up a variety of weapons along the way(gun and melee) as well as upgrades for these weapons.

The gameplay is very simplistic in War40k, almost too simple at times. You have the ability for ranged attacks using guns, and up close melee attacks with a variety of weapons that you can find throughout the campaign. When enemies get to close you can switch on the fly to your melee weapon of choice and start hacking away. Mix in your "stun" attack occasionally to initiate a variety of stun moves(single target, or AoE). When an enemy is stunned you can initiate a fatality move which produces plenty of blood, a nice death kill animation, as well as granting you health. An interesting, and refreshing way to regenerate your health I think.

Not all is good with this setup though. While the gameplay is fun, there is little variety to it. Within 3-4 hours you will begin to notice that despite a change of melee weapon or switching between guns; you really don't have as much freedom as one might think. Combat is repetitive, though satisfying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Over The Top Action October 8, 2013
By Eric K.
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, if you're familiar with the Warhammer 40k universe, this game will hit all the fundamental and basic plot points you would expect. You've got Ultramarines facing off against Orcs and Chaos. There's no deep cuts into canon lore here, but there doesn't need to be. If you're completely unfamiliar with the setting of Warhammer 40k, don't worry. You're a superhuman killing machine with awesome weapons taking on a planet full of enemies. Simple. And that sums up the game, simple. Simple is good, in fact, in this game it's great! There's no puzzles to solve, no intricate platforming, next to no exploration, just unending waves of enemies to hack apart with melee weaponry or blow apart with a nice assortment of ranged weapons. The game never tries to be anything other than what it is advertised to be and that is a 3rd person shooter. That is it.

Players of Gears of War will be very comfortable with the control set up here and fans of 3rd person shooters will have a well made over the top arcade style shooter to enjoy. There's no stealth here, minimal strategy apart from managing your health and ammo.

Visually, the PC version is superior with better textures, higher frame rate, etc. But for a game that's been out for a couple years, this holds up just fine on the PS3 and 360. The soundtrack quality is exceptionally well done, the weapons sound great, the voice acting is actually pretty good overall. Of course, the villains get all the best lines and deliver the best performances.

At the price the game is now, this game is a steal!
