The graphics and sound are superb, and the missions are at the right difficulty level.
There are a number of units to use (space marines, scouts, terminators, grey knights, dreadnoughts, predator, land raider, land speeder) as the space marines and the enemy chaos also has a number of different units and vehicles. You get to choose the weaponry (bolters, missile launchers, las cannons, chainsword, plasma guns and many more) for your squad and then play a hunt and destroy or survive for a number of turns game.
They are all set in an urban city which again is very good graphics and the scenery is all destructable. This is the real limitation of the game and all missions are set in the same city environment. But the game is great fun and there are 15 missions to play in single mission mode. The best missions are when you have to keep the squad alive playing defensive for a number of turns whilst they are attacked by numerous enemies.
The cut scenes also must get a mention as they are really well rendered.
Though the storyline linking them could have been better with characters such as maybe a squad sergeant etc.
Top game lets hope they do another.
I love the great variety of units, weapons and maps. Although 15 missons is not that much... I wouldn't mind an expansion. Or second game...
Any Warhammer 40K gamer is going to love this game. Its a great digital version of the table top game. A great pice of work.
However, game sharing for this game is a little 2D as you can only play as SM (the host) and Chaos, which although it is true for the rest of the game, in this mode its just 6 marines vs 6 chaos marines.
Obviously got some work to do, but taking a look back at DOW compared to DOW2 and SS, i see that actually they had a lot of work to do.
As a foundation for future releases of this game, i think its great. At the moment, it is short, not many people own it for multiplayer and there are just two races to take, as well as no option for which units you want to take to each battle (e.g. a points limit and a choice in each campaign mission would make it better). However, weapon options are good and the whole cover system, and everything else is good.
My favourtie style of strategy games has been the turn-based version for many years, and I used to play tabletop 40k as a teenager, so I was really looking forward to this title. Ontop of that, I loved Chaos Gate - the similar PC game of 10 years ago - that I had heard Squad Command was closely designed on.
The graphics seemed spot on - the usual sharp PSP quality; the vehicles in particular looked spot-on and really suited the 40k atmosphere. The sound was also good and very atmospheric.
But the game just didn't live up to my expectations, and I feel it was a real missed opportunity. The single biggest problem seems to be a lack of any real depth throughout the game. There are 15 missions, but there is actually not a great deal of difference between them. The combat areas do not differ much - always the same ruined city - and the actual objectives are hardly diverse. For example, in the few missions where you do have a clear objective (e.g. destroy the ammo depot), you can actually end the game by default if you kill all of the enemy. So, sadly, you find yourself simply on a seek-n-destroy mission each time out.
Character development is not strong, and certainly not on a par with chaos gate. Successfully completing missions allows you access to slightly better weapons, but the individual men do not gain experience at all. Almost instantly you lose any feeling of a campaign - it is just 15 consecutive skirmish scenarios.
But all of that aside, the biggest weakness is that each of the 15 scenarios are way too short. Only 3 or 4 took me more than 1 attempt to complete, and in less than 48 hrs the game was completed.Read more ›

A good strategy game. plenty of weapons [and maps] to choose from. Admittedly, not the longest psp game in the world, but there is plenty of action. Read morePublished on 15 Feb. 2015 by Frederick Caton

WarHammer is a good game but if you are buying it think it is a bit like COD then don't. If you are into strategy then this is the game for you. Read morePublished on 24 July 2012 by Matt
