Firstly i bought the collectors edition as i love the art work but really this was very expensive for some game cards, a book and a cd as extra. after the novelty wore off i felt a little robbed but hey hoe i have a purity seal (dont ask if you dont know). Now i have heard alot of people say this is gears of war but guys...it does use the 3rd person perspective bit but space marines has been around for far longer. the main difference is gow uses cover where as spacemarines run into battle so no cover required just brute force and ignorance. If your shields are popped and your health starts to dip you have to execute a bad guy in a grisly way to regain it (like a blood lust adrenaline juice up).This raises your adrenaline as you are surrounded for pretty much the whole game thus executing bad guys leaves you vulnerable. I found as i had low health i was judging who i could leave for last to get my health back which was surprisingly tactical.Read more ›
The box itself is MASSIVE, the face of it is about 20-30% larger than a Codex, and amazingly well designed, the main body slides out of a nice tough cardboard sleeve with a stunning Ultramarine sigil on it. The main body of the product is actually made to look like a book, again bearing the symbol of the Ultramarines and a nice, shiny 'page' effect on the sides. The Purity Seal looks fantastic, really good quality, solid replica of the seal, with scorched cloth oaths hanging underneath, the script on which is perfectly readable. The back is actually a magnet, so you can stick it to.. Well, anything you want, really. Mine for instance, is on the side of my PC tower. The artbook and cards are really good quality, highly detailed (with nice combat tips on the cards) The book is hardcover, and PACKED with concept art, character development boards and weapon designs, and the game itself? Damn good, nicely challenging, if a little short. Suffice it to say, buy this sucker!
By note, with the collectors edition you get a hardback book of conceptual art for the game. As a collector of graphic novels and "art of..." for anime movies, I really liked this as an addition. The pack of character cards I haven't opened yet, and the purity seal... well it's a bit cheap and tacky if I'm being honest.
This is probably great as a gift for a 40K fan but, that aside, I wouldn't spend the additional outlay for the minimal extras you get in the collectors edition.
Back to the game in hand, you are leading Titus of the Ultramarines' Second Company on the Forge World Graia.
The graphics are impressive to look at, and the range of characters from the Warhammer universe are rendered splendidly. But with this game 2 years in development, it still appears to be lacking, and its release time is poorly placed as other reviewers have pointed out against other titles coming out soon - Gears of War 3, Skyrim, and even Batman Arkham City. The game engine versus the flexibility of another recent title, Red Faction, leaves a little to be desired - you could do much more with flexible scenery, given the level of destruction going on in the Forge World during the game. The tunneled nature of the gameplay did make it a little predictable.
Still, the online gameplay is good, and you can customise your marines so that you can play as a variety of chapters from the tabletop game itself, which is a neat (if simple) addition.
In summary : a good solid game, but is probably going to be quickly forgotten / overlooked when its competitors release their next big titles in the coming weeks. Worth buying, but not worth the outlay for the collectors edition, unless you're buying for an avid fan.
