I'm afraid they really missed the mark on this one. First off there is supposed to be a printed manual with the game. Mine didn't have one and from various chat rooms neither did most other folks. The developer has acknowledged a packaging problem and the manual is available as a PDF download on the Firewarrior site.
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.

Having witnessed the evolution of first person shooters and the WH40k universe of games first hand, I have trouble believing how unbelievably bad this game is. Apparently, Games Workshop will lend their WH40K license to anyone.
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.

UK Does not care about Virus loaded on DVD to Load game the Virus has to be loaded. Norton 360 Locked down the game DVD to prevent the loading of the virus. Tech Support non-supportive of USA purchase. tried for several days to resolve. Return shipping plus purchase shipping would cost more than the Game is valued at. Cheaper to take the lose than to Spend more to return. plus get a negative hit on my AMOZON profile. Now I have a $37 Dollar Coaster for my drink.

I'd never heard anything about the Warhammer 40,000 universe before playing this game. It looks like people who know the universe enjoy it much more. As far as compared to other first-person shooters, this is pretty disappointing. Reading the game features made it sound pretty cool, but the developers just missed opportunites. You can carry one gun in each hand... apparently all the people in the year 40k have two right hands ;) Other than launching rather than tossing gernades and amount of ammo, I couldn't figure out the difference between the two guns you get...other than looks. The shoot exactly the same. You also just run up and fire point-blank range at other players and whoever lands the first 10 or so hits wins. I can't believe that a universe that has been developed as long as WH40K appears to have been could be so lifeless and stale... nothing interesting I haven't seen in other FPSers. Maybe knowing the back-story would make it more interesting. The graphics are pretty nice- so I give it 2 stars for that, but if you are an FPS fan and not a WH40K fan, you might want to skip this one.
