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.

The game is fun. Just how long does the fun last? Depends on each particular person.

The Story (3.5/5)
It's a standard 40K story. There is only war, high risks, threats to the Imperium. Relic uses the known enemies of the Imperium, so there are no big surprises, or great twists. It's enjoyable, light, easy to follow. But certainly not a masterpiece. You know your objectives, you know what's at stake. I found that the servo-skulls recordings were quite nice, a welcome addition. It gives you background from the invasion prior to your arrival, and the desperation of survival.

The Graphics (5/5)
Beautiful. Relic's experience with the 40K license gives them a spectacular understanding of how to emulate the feeling of the 40K universe. There's a lot of detail throughout the war-torn Forge World, from visual treats like the Adeptus Mechanicus sigils, the detail on the Orks, the Purity Seals on your Power Armour... it's all great. The texture quality might not be the best, but that's me nitpicking.

The Sound (4/5)
The voice-acting is okay, sort of what I expected from Ultramarines. They are not passionate, and you can almost feel the holier-than-thou attitude. The regular human acting was actually a good surprise; I think they both captured the awe at seeing an Adeptus Astartes, and the tiredness of fighting against a brutal enemy. The Orks, on the other hand... they could have been better. More Ork-ish, I guess. Also, the bolter did not sound as powerful as I would've liked. It's good, but nothing spectacular. The soundtrack is pretty good, a great touch. I half-expected to hear the Ultramarine chants of previous games, though.

The Game (4/5)
You see an Ork, you kill an Ork. That's pretty much all you need to know.

Space Marine is an interesting animal... for all intents and purposes it SEEMS like it would be a silly rental game that you knock out in a few hours and never touch again, but because of the sheer talent of the development company behind it, it isn't. It is much more enjoyable.

I know nothing about the lore behind Warhammer 40k and was worried this game would give me so little context that I would be lost, fortunately there is enough story telling that you pretty much understand what you are (a badass) and what you are doing (being badass) and why you are doing it (for the emperor!). Titus (you, the main character) is Marcus Fenix if you sent him to Oxford, made him in his 40s and classed him up to the point that he demands respect and admiration from everyone around him.

The story itself is straight forward, one of the alliance manufacturing planets (I guess everyone in the universe just makes war implements and constantly fights) is being attacked by orcs and you are dropped in to secure the most valuable war machines.

But then there is a twist and things go sideways... I loved the twist, the character design was brilliant.

Had this exact same game been given to any other development studio that was more junior and maybe had sloppier controls or poorer looking graphics and design effects, it would have scored a 5 out of 10, it is honestly just from sheer solidness of execution that this game ends up being fun and feeling great. A testament to skilled work I think.

Space Marine is a great "play for 15 mins" kind of game or sit down and play for hours. It is gory, controls are easy to use, sound effects are great and punchy and checkpoints reasonable.

Review of the PC version. First off this is a steamworks title, so all games are activated through steam (A huge plus for me, keeping my library in one place).

This game runs extremely well and I must say it is very well optimized. I am playing at 1920x1080 on a GTX570 with i5-2500k and the GPU does not go above 55% usage. That's not to say there's not much going on in the game, as the graphics are beautiful and smooth at 60FPS all day. The game supports xbox 360 gamepad natively or customizable keyboard controls. I tried both and I must say since there is a ton of shooting to do, I like the kb/m combo a lot better than the 360 controller. I've read this game runs very well on laptops also that barely meet the minimum requirements. This game is straight up boss on PC and that's a testament to THQ and their Warhammer games that have been on the PC.

This game is VERY satisfying in terms of what it wants to accomplish, and that is killing orcs and making it fun. The gunplay is very tight and I'm halfway through but have experienced at least 8 different guns and there are so far 3-4 different melee weapons. The melee combos are simple but effective and the mix of gunplay and melee combat against hordes of greenskinz is executed very well. Simply it, this game is just FUN to play. There is a demo available on steam if anyone is curious how well it runs and you get a taste of the combat and jet pack. Now the JET pack, WOW you get this thing a few times throughout the campaign and you feel like a beast with it on. You can fly up, ground pound, shoot from the air and just become a murder machine.
