Firstly, I am a massive fan of the Warhammer 40k universe. The imagery, storyline and rich history provide a classic must for a game of depth. I know it has been said, but why the hell did they not give the game to Bethesda Studios for a game akin to Oblivion and have a space marine that can level up, buy new weapons, lead a squad and generally engorge the player with tales of daring do and rich gameplay ? Simple answer; 'Money'... bang out another generic shoot em up/hack and slash and rely on the licence to roll the money in !
Lazy just lazy and it annoys me that like most decent licences companies fritter away the deep history and backdrop to another dumb down game and ignore the richness of 40k that makes it so engrossing.
Ok now thats my moan. As a generic shooter/hack and slash quite good fun but it should have been called 'generic off the shoulder killing things game'... I mean its ok but 'Just' Orks.
I mean where are the Eldar, the Nurgle hoard, the Necrons, the Chaos marines and the real bad biys of the 40k universe ?...nope just Orkses. We all know they like 'Wah' but why was their no choice of race ? A massive disappointment to a older lover of Warhammer who wanted rich intelligent gameplay. Lazy and disappointing frankly. If you are a fan do what I did and buy for a tenner from a car boot. Hack and slash and then moan.
I just wish that one day someone will make the 40k game of my dreams. This sadly is not it.
