There are a few good points. First the graphics are pretty good. Not the best you have seen but nice. The video sequences are well done and if you are a WH40K fan they are really cool. In fact they make you wish they would just do an animated movie this way for WH40K. Unfortunately the good points pretty much end there. The sound is not well done at all. Dialog is hard to understand, weapons fire is wimpy and your main weapon has so much low-end bass to it that after awhile the sound really gets on your nerves (if you have a subwoofer anyway). Artillery and other ambient sounds seem to cut in and out randomly. You just get a very sterile feel from the whole thing.
By far the worst part of the game though is the combat! The weapons are RIDICULOUSLY inaccurate. I mean you can be five feet away from an enemy and blast away and you'll be lucky to hit him once. If that wasn't bad enough it seems to take an entire clip of ammo to knock down even an Imperial Guard trooper. Ok, actually four shots will do it but you'll use a full clip trying to hit one that many times. SGTs take ten hits or more to take down as they come at you with their chainswords. One example: I entered a room and stopped to shoot at a stationary trooper across the room (a small room). I placed my cursor carefully dead center on the target (we were both stationary). I went through a clip and a half before he died.Read more ›
Visual experience: While the graphics engine is up to the task, the textures and level design are completely uninspired, making this game a visually bland experience. Although, I did enjoy the cut scenes which were well done, with the exception of poor voice talent. With this small exception, this game lacks any style whatsoever.
Weapons: Despite the game being set in the 41 Millennium, the weapons are about as deadly as a roman candle. The Pulse Rifle for example is well over a meter long and looks to weigh 100 kilos, yet it takes several shots to take out an unarmored imperial guardsman, even at point blank range.
Level Design: This game reverts to the stone age of the genera. These guys have apparent missed 15+ years of evolution. I had the feeling of being a trail horse, leisurely making my way about the countryside, not being able to choose my path or stray from the path that I was on. I found that you really don't have to pay attention to your mission or any of the plot development. Just continue to move forward, killing bad guys... If you run into a locked door, find a switch.
Gameplay: Take away the fancy graphics, and you're a playing a Doom II clone, without the cool weapons, spooky atmosphere or feeling of eminent danger. Strafe is the name of the game here boys and girls. Constantly run from side to side, back and forth behind cover and unload on your enemies and you'll be fine. Repeat until game complete. I found this game incredibly easy.Read more ›

This is a decent FPS, though some times your left clueless ass to where to go next. It's definitely for the die hard 40k gamers.Published on October 6, 2010 by David
