Editors’ Notes

Whoever came up with the idea of blending futuristic wars with the ancient game of chess is our kind of crazed genius. The mix of turn-based movement and Warhammer’s grisly violence proves deeply satisfying, whether you’re playing classic mode (more like traditional chess) or regicide mode (where units get special abilities like psychic powers and health regeneration). Regicide’s campaign tells a surprisingly rich story, and stunning graphics add intensity to the bloody clashes between orks and space marines.

Other reveiews are probably fanboys.


Game is nothing like chess save for turn based gameplay. Your peices are simply arranged in similar fashon to chess during skirmishes.
However your units do not move nor attack like chess peices.
Campaign is unbalanced and the complete campaign is another .99 cents.
You cant upgrade your units regardless of what other reviews say, the “armory” is just a place to change out different abilities that are used in between turns.
This game is nothing like chess, this game is a strategy game on its own.

This is how chess should be played


Wonderful and brutal. I'm enjoying the classic mode at the moment leveling up my basic chess skills. When I'm ready I'll take on the really difficult regicide mode. Don't get to attached to your pieces as you'll witness some the most brutal fatalities outside of Mortal Kombat.
