4.0 out of 5 stars Space Marine 16 Oct. 2011
By Kingcrimsonprog TOP 500 REVIEWER
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I actually really enjoyed this game. I belong to the niche market that both enjoys the Warhammer 40k universe to the point of reading dozens of novels and also enjoys many third person action games. If you don't then Space Marine may not appeal to you as much and you may want to try before you buy and may indeed wish to skip this review, which assumes you are familiar with both.

Initial Marketing suggested that Space Marine would be a game that mixed Gears Of War and the Warhammer 40K license together but surprisingly, Space Marine actually ended up closer to God Of War than Gears Of War is several key areas.

In the campaign there are seventeen levels spread across five chapters, which can last about twelve to fifteen hours and which feature a good variety of enemies, including: Gretchin, Choppa Boyz, Shoota Boyz, Rocket equipped Boyz, Two variants of 'Ard Boyz Squiggs, at least three variants of Nob, occasional Stormboyz and airbourne vehicles, occasional variants of turret towers, occasional weirdboyz, traitor guardsmen, three or four variants of traitor marines, pyskers, Bloodletters (its not much of a spoiler as they're on the box art) and a few others.

There is also a good variety of weapons to be employed in the campaign; which except for grenades, come in three forms: Combat, Ranged and Exotic. You can carry one Combat weapon and up to four Ranged weapons at a time, wheras Exotic weapons are taken in combat from mounts and replace all other weapons until they run out of ammo or are discarded.

5.0 out of 5 stars pretty good overall 22 Jun. 2014
By waqar
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Its a pretty good game overall, quite fun especially with a friend. Although exterminates is all I would really play, for the price its pretty good. I wold recommend this to anyone who likes warhammer 40k and even people who don't, as its not just general third person shooter, its different and unique.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great game for the Games Workshop fans 25 Sept. 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a difficult game to review for me. I am a massive fan of just about everything the Games Workshop puts out but the main game is too short. There is the online co-op, which gives you the option to play a customized Space Marine or Chaos Marine and that opens the game up more but i'd hoped for more content in the main game.

As a GW fan i've given this a 4 star fun rating because it's great fun stomping around as a Space Marine using all those fab weapons i've spent years of my life painting and gluing together. As a game in it's own right it only gets 3 stars as there are games out there in a similar format but doing it a lot better.

The game leaves the story open for a sequel so let's see what they do with the next one

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible fun! 25 April 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3| Edition:Standard Edition|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game a few weeks ago as I am a fan of Warhammer 40,000 and I was pleasantly surprised with the excellent quality of this game! The gameplay is superbly smooth and very enjoyable, blending shooter and hack-and-slash seamlessly. The multiplayer is excellent, if a little limited as it is quite a while since the game's release - the customisation is fantastically original and innovative and overall the game is a pleasure to play!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great fun 30 Dec. 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Great fun to be had for a cheap price. This game has a great plot with twists and turns throughout. The game is actually quite long and it kept me going for around 20 hours and has the fun online multi player makes the game worth every penny.

Graphics are ok but could be improved and at some points the gameplay got a little repetitive although there are a range of weapons to choose from which means a variety of ways to kill the enemies.

You wont get bored of slaughtering the enemies.

A warhammer 40k classic for the PS3 and a must for all warhammer fans, i cant wait for the next game to come out because if its anything like this one it will be great fun.

Well deserved 4*

4.0 out of 5 stars Stupid mindless fun. 30 Sept. 2011
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Edition:Standard Edition
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First and foremost I think I must mention that I am not a huge fan of the Warhammer series. Not that I have anything against it, I just don't get it is all. That disclaimer aside let's get our teeth straight into it.

The story centres around a small group of Space Marines (surprise, surprise) as they fend off an invading horde of Orks on one of the Imperial Forge Worlds. There is a sub-story but much of it may not even be there. All you have to really think about is that between you and the end of the game is a mass of enemies, they must die.

The combat is solid if at times a bit stiff, much like any modern 3rd person shooter. It feeling like the illegitimate offspring between the Warhammer universe and Gears of War. The transition between ranged and melee combat seems unnatural with our dear Captain Titus harbouring the ability to switch out a bolter and equip a bolter in but a fraction of a second. Although adding any kind of realism in this instants would just slow the pace of the game down, hence why it can be forgiven.

The game-play feels a bit schizophrenic with what can be rather large gaps between combat scenes, which can get rather boring and drag on a bit. Fans of the franchise may be more incline to keep playing because of the driving plot, but me not being a fan this was lost on me and left me feeling the game was a bit linear and plain.

The multi-player is fun with each class having their own distinctive weaknesses and strengths. I find the game options and maps to be a bit restricted giving only two types of match as of this review.
