Faithful to the Warhammer license, Warhammer: Mark of Chaos puts the focus squarely on the battlefield with a real-time combat system that gives the player unprecedented customization and control of his army. An epic battle rages following a brutal Chaos invasion, where four fully playable armies (Empire, Chaos, Skaven, and High Elves) as well as additional controllable races (Orcs, Dwarfs, Vampires, and Goblins) clash on a massive battlefield.

Master the Art of War: Warhammer: Mark of Chaos is about war, focusing on the armies and battles while de-emphasising the tedious aspects of base and resource management.

Epic, Visceral Battles on a Massive Scale: Epic sense of both scale and detail where big demons and huge beautifully rendered battalions clash with thousands of characters battling on screens in intricate detail.

    Use Environments to Your Advantage: A variety of buildable features and randomised, destructible terrains such as forests, swamps, plains, and tundra change the shape of the battlefield and add a layer of strategy that provides infinite replayability.

      Command Heroes and Champions: As armies move from battle to battle in an epic war, Heroes and Champions learn new tactics, unlock new abilities, command larger units, even challenge other Champions in a duel to the death.

        Customise Your Army: Warhammer: Mark of Chaos takes customisation to a new level by allowing for body part swaps, weapon and armor enhancements, and more powerful controls to paint units and customise banners. Additionally, players can accent armies with mercenaries and "Dogs of War," augmenting the look and play of their army for a unique game experience.

          Variety of Play Modes: Dynamic cooperative campaign mode and a full assortment of multiplayer modes for both casual and competitive gamers.

           Not bad.

          I bought this game as an investment during exam leave. The idea was to have a game that would keep me occupied in the house and out of the pub. All I can say is that this plan did not work.

          This game is far too short. It is meant to be a strategy; well I can guarantee zero strategic thinking on this one. Most battles are a case of tanking your virtually indestructible heroes into battle, followed by heavy troops, backed with ranged units. I completed both campaigns in a matter of days using this single, "strategy". There is also no option for single battle/skirmish which further limits replay value.

          The graphics are amazing and you can't fault the warhammer stories and recognizable characters. Battle animations are mesmerizing at times; you are able to zoom right into action, with next generation visuals. Leveling up your heroes is a nice touch too. Although changing items between heroes is awkward, even with the patch.

          All in all a good game that could have been better. Enjoyable? Definitely. But definitely not a step forward for the genre.

          i have to say i liked the game i thought the idea of the leaders was a good one and the graphics or the amount that goese on in one game was good i have played the "dawn of war" games and compared to them i iwll say that this one is much better the armies are true to the actual game and over all i liked it very much thats why i gave it a 5 star rating

           Good but too short...

          After looking around and seeing the reveiws of this game (most of which rated it poorly) i decided to approach it with an open mind. The game itself is not that bad, the graphics are pleasing to watch (provided your system is up to the task, loading times are long, even with a good system) and the units are true enough to the warhammer world to become realistic. Where this game falls down is the replayability. After completing the campagins i found them to be rather short, which was a shame as i found that the storyline could have been played out more, seems as if it was rushed through. The campaign mode is very linier with very few optional missions you can do that do nothing to alter your quest. Having said that it was easy to pick up and play, but if your expecting Dawn of war avoid this. The game was intended never to be like dawn of war, focusing more on the battle aspect than the building of structures. The skirmish mode is quite good with reletivly good AI but is hard to find due to the fact you have to set it up through the multiplayer options. Worth buying if you have spare cash, otherwise stick to total war.

          Just bought this, and started playing it....its rubbish, nothing really new about it and there is NO skirmish option, the game play is boring and slightly repetitive, if you've played dawn of war then don't expect it to be similar. My recommendation...stick with Dawn Of War

           Enjoyable but flawed.

          Overall the game is enjoyable to play, though ultimately there is nothing new to excite experienced players of this genre. This review focuses solely on the single-player game only.

          The Good
          ---------
          It is set in the Warhammer [Fantasy Battle] Universe. Two fairly large story driven campaigns. Decent graphics engine. Atmospheric voice acting. Accurate depictions of units. Unit and leader diversity is good. Very good amount of upgrades and customisations for each unit type. Some scenario replayability with different troop combinations. Beautiful graphics if not ground-breaking, very reminiscent of the table-top look.

          The Not-so-Good
          ---------------
          Overall the game feels unbalanced, especially the Empire campaign where units are too powerful. Hence, its too easy on normal difficulty setting, mostly because the amount of gold received is too much. There is some scenario diversity but it does not vary enough. Leader skill trees are too similar across the board. Optional missions don't add much to proceedings, especially the duels. Tactical aspects of battles are too few in number, limiting players to sheparding their units, or piling in en masse. Scenarios are also too heavily scripted, decreasing replability. The interface doesn't lend much when havng to dish out multiple orders to one or several units at a time. Leaders can't be attached to every unit type. No chance to command Dwarven armies, though Orce/Dark Elf armies are available in the expansion pack. The AI isn perfectly fine, but can all to easily be outwitted. Like most games it leans heavily on the advantage of tight mission scripting, numbers and players making mistakes. On a first pass of playing the game it does a good job, but once a player knows whats coming its a different story.

          Conclusion
          ----------
          While there isnt really anything new in terms of the RTS genre added here, the game gushes out loads of style and if you like Warhammer FB or are a fan of fantasy RTS then you should definitely give this game a try.
