Warhamer 40,000: Space Marine is a third-person Action Shooter in which players accept the role of a Space Marine Captain tasked with the defense of the empire as well as humanity against the Chaos Faction lead by the ruthless Ork hordes. Players will have to use their exceptional size, strength, armor, weaponry and fighting spirit in order to succeed. Features include: a new seamless combat system allowing equally for ranged and melee action, hordes of deadly enemies of various kinds, intense 16-player online multiplayer and more.
In Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine you are Captain Titus of the Ultramarines, humanity's last hope for survival in a war-ridden future. Step into the armor of this superhuman warrior and use a lethal combination of deadly weapons to crush overwhelming alien forces. Fight against the savage Orks and the unholy forces of Chaos in a brutally violent world based on the richest science fiction fantasy ever created.
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.

***UPDATE*** 7/14/2012 After playing for several more hours I really in all fairness have to give it four stars. It does play better as it evolves and is a good single shooter game in that respect. Think Judge Dredd meets Road Warriors. It gets a little busy with some shoot-outs and boss fights and choosing the right combat modes really make a difference.
My only gripe: too short, dangit! The solo campaign did have its highs but it was over way too quickly. (If those seeking multiplayer fun will find more for them, I can't say. Don't care for it, didn't even look.) This was to be the first of a trilogy, but the publisher pulled the plug, and left me in the dark regarding the fate of Captain Titus. I did entertain me enough that I'll only take one star from it, though.
Gameplay: The game for the most part is your standard third person shooter, it has similar shooting mechanics to games such as Bionary Domain, Army of Two, and Transformers Fall of Cybertron. You'll go through most of the game using a melee weapon, assault rifle, pistol and you'll have the option to swap these weapons out with other weapons such as a grenade launcher and flame gun. The best part is when you get to occasionally use a jetpack and swoop down on enemies, it's really awesome and quite enjoyable.
For the most part gameplay is fun, but at times can get a tad tedious and repetitive. 7/10
Graphics/Environment: Graphically the game looks nice, it's not super detailed like some games but it gets the job done. 7/10
Story/Characters: The story is well done, it gets the story across without overstaying it's welcome and carrying out long cutscenes which become dull. I found certain parts of the story really intriguing which made me want more especially when the end drew near. I really liked the characters in the game, especially Captain Titus and his 2 other companions. I found the Orks to be very annoying and obnoxious, and that's just how the developers wanted me to feel so I personally enjoyed the antagonists. 8/10
Overall Warhammer 40K is a good game that isn't without its flaws here and there, it has a few quick time event moments which should be outlawed when playing with a KB&M. The gameplay can get repetitive to a certain extent and at one point I just wanted to rush through and beat the game.
Relic did a nice job and for a price point of currently 10 dollars I say go for it if you are looking for a decent third person shooter that will last you around 8-10 hours.
