Well-written, occasionally irritating gameplay
The story parts were truly excellent and really feel like a proper, 40K lore story. The combat somehow gets the incredible power of the character's armor across quite well.
That said, the "Wheel of Fate" is, in my opinion, a ridiculous mechanic. What is effectively the tug of the arm of a casino slot-machine should not lead directly to death.
The game also, apparently, has an very specific order in which it wants you to perform your selections. That, to me, is an irksome way to create replayability. Finding the, apparently, one way to do things right is a slog, not an adventure.
Love the millions of 40k gaming joys!
Awesome, looks like I'm the first to buy and review. Been waiting for this, as well as Eisenhorn: Xenos to come out. I have played bout the first 20 to 40 min of this one and...if' you love 40k, and space hulks then this will be a gem..instabuy for me. Seems very stable so far, great writing, and fighting is quite fun. Also, you get to fight all Xenos...even necrons and Eldar...been awhile since I've seen these factions in a 40k game so they're very welcome! Lovin it!
Like Joe Dever's Lonewolf
Good writing, presentation, and sound. Nice range of choices. I feel like once you get the Space a Marine mindset it's easier to follow the logic of the 40K universe. Turn based battles are very well done.
