Five main sections to it with at least four parts to each section (section one only had four parts so I am basing my guess on the other sections from that.)

I'll say this now for the few of us who played the demo and did not like it. If you can, do not get the game because there is a very high chance your not gonna like it. The story so far is pretty good (I only finished part one so far) but those gameplay snags that killed things for you are still there.


Took me a good three/four hours to beat section one on normal, though about fifteen minutes of that was me dieing at this one rather annoying part people will recognize instantly when they get to it. Other than that one part, made it through the rest of section one without the screen losing colour.

The game actually starts you out with a pistol and knife (which had me a tad worried about this captain) and through the course of the section you obtain the bolter, stalker, vengeance launcher (which gets an explanation as to why the fuck you have a grenade launcher like that), chainsword, and fury. Yeah thats right, the fury meter is something you do not start with, which I thought was kinda cool.

Battlements, the second of the two demo levels, is featured in section one so that was nice. The first demo level is the start of section two, which I'll be playing through later today.


Story so far is pretty good in my opinion, section flow smoothly and the cut-scenes often offer some good visuals. And for those wondering, the number of cut-scenes is not over the top, really just there for the few things we need them for. First time I saw a guardsman in the game and that he was being attacked I rushed to his side without a second thought, and when he got cut down I'm pretty sure I cursed the orks out loud.


Weapons I have gotten to use that were not in the demo so far have been the heavy bolter and plasma cannon. Both were turret mounted, but like later halo you can tear them off and walk about. Both of them were awesome; the heavy bolter shreds orks like nobodies business and a fully charged plasma cannon shot will end a nob and anyone near him after a single shot (or bring him to stunned status, where an execution or minor shot will do him in.)



So far, loving the campaign and can't wait to see the rest of it. And if the other sections take as much time as this one, then we are looking at a 15-20 hour game with some decent replay value and a fairly decent multiplayer. I'm rather happy with my purchase.

Just wanted to throw a few things out for anyone wondering:

First, if you were fearing the story might in fact just be the players and his two buddies let me alay said fear. I haven't seen any others yet, but captain Titus gives at least one other squad orders. And where there is one squad, I have no doubt there is at least a few more.

Second, as if the demo didn't emphasize scale enough, section two takes place inside the titan manufactorum for at least some part. You see a warlord titan from a distance, and everything is either enormous or very spaced out. Really does a good job of giving you an idea on scale in the 40k universe which is cool.

And lastly; I don't know if its me but I think the demo features 1/2 or 1/3 the actual number of enemies. The first part of section two of the game is the same as the first demo level, as I mentioned before, and that holding off the orks before getting on the lift definitely featured at least twice as many enemies.

Yeah, us PC users should list our Steam names.

Wraithlord
Steam name: Fleischwolf

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Single player is ok, it has yet to wow me and feels like a generic action game... multiplayer however is a well balanced treat. Poor assault kiddies and their panic melee's. I just wave and smile as i shot them in the head...

Summery-don't play assault unless you can control yourself...

I am i the only one who feels like a search and destroy game mode would fit well, or at least a one sided assault?

Yes, I do play orks, yes, I do have quite a few boys on the table, and yes, it does take me a while to move them...got a problem with that...
