4.0 out of 5 stars A good game, though room for improvement November 25, 2006
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never played the table-top version of Warhammer, but this game seemed to be a fairly interesting take on the age-old elves, orcs, and dwarf formula that appears in so many games nowadays. I'm a huge fan of Relic's Dawn of War franchise, so I decided to pick this game up. Overall, I'm glad that I got this game; it's a solid product with lots of potential for expansion. However, it also has plenty of room for improvement, and I would suggest that anyone considering this game to play the demo first.

Gameplay: The game is true to the standard real-time strategy (RTS) formula, minus the harvesting and base building. You pick and customize your units before each battle and then fight it out against other armies in open fields or sieges. Some of the battles feel somewhat epic, especially the castle sieges. But there are never more than about 400-500 units on the map at any give time. Hero units play a huge role in the game. They can "level up" and collect items like heroes in roleplaying games, duel against other heroes, and give bonuses to the troops that they command. The hero system, as it stands now, needs to be refined a bit more so that heroes don't level up too fast (I had one go from 10th to 35th level in less than 5 minutes in one skirmish game!). However, I generally like what heroes add to gameplay. The game does have some tactical elements to it. Things such as morale, terrain, flanking, charges, and unit-counters do come into play. Units with broken morale will flee, which can end a battle quickly. Cavalry is underpowered and does not nearly justify its cost. There is friendly fire in this game, but only in the case of area-of-effect weapons like cannon. In my opinion, that's good enough.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rushed development ruined a potentially good game December 2, 2006
By obediah
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
"Warhammer Mark of Chaos" is a combat oriented real time strategy game. All elements of base building and resource management have been removed and the game consists of a linear progression from battle to battle, with token plot elements scattered in between. The main strength of the game is its beautifully rendered characters. The user can zoom using the mouse wheel from the "bird's eye" perspective all the way down to the individual character level. Whilst the game provides plenty of eye candy, sadly this is one of the few positives in an otherwise limited repetoire.

The game has drawbacks aplenty. Firstly as mentioned above the game is very linear which severely cripples its replayability in single player mode. The computer AI is horrendous. Given that the combat system is the game's only real selling point, the user would expect the AI to be able to implement at least rudimentary military strategy. Instead, the computer AI sends its units forth one at a time to be invariably crushed when facing the entire weight of the opposing army.

The game has a duelling system which allows opposing heroes to fight. This was rather pathetic. The enemy heroes were so overmatched that I was able to leave my hero alone and he was able to slay the enemy foe without so much as a mouse click from me. The game is also poorly balanced to the extent that I was able to finish the final mission on hardest difficulty without losing even a single troop. The heroes are far too powerful and this saps much of the enjoyability of the game.

Once the novelty wears off, and it quickly does wear off, it becomes very difficult to find anything about the game which can be talked about in a positive light. As such my only recommendation is to stay away.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Graphics - Be Sure to Update March 25, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Warhammer - Mark of Chaos involves thousands of soldiers in a fantasy world clashing against each other. Elves, Goblins, Skaven and Humans battle it out for supremacy of the known world.

Before you even start playing this game, make sure you UPDATE it. It took us five tries to even get this game installed - the install utility kept crashing. We have a very new machine, too. There are countless tales of the gameplay crashing. If you do a full update - which can take an hour or more - you have the best possible chance of actually playing this game bug-free.

The graphics are gorgeous. You do need a high end computer to take full advantage of them, but you were due for an upgrade anyway, right? The elegance of the elves, the gritty darkness of the goblins, everything shows up with great detail and an eye for the cultures involved. When you're involved in the battles you can zoom out for a general overlook of the terrain, or zoom in close to watch individual soldiers duke it out.

The game is all about large scale battles. You choose what units you're going to send out against the foe, and then the battle commences. Think in terms of massive samurai battles with gigantic forces sweeping down against each other.

Speaking of samurai battles, you also get the one-on-one hero conflict that samurai warriors were so fond of. This gives you a break from the massive battle for a while, focussing on just one particular person, and the way he moves and swings.

Like most games of this ilk, the single-player gameplay is really more of a training mission than anything else. There are two, reasonably long (each perhaps a weekend of playing) scripted missions that help you learn the strengths and weaknesses of the various units.
