Default TPS Game Fluff

I have the new Space Marines game for 360 and I LOVE IT!!! However I find myself questioning how accurately fluffy is this game?

First off I want to know more about Captain Titus. One of the space marines in the game has a II painted on his shoulder guards that is under Titus's command, so that lead me to believe this was the first second company captain for the Ultramarines?

My biggest gripe is the inquisition! The Inquisitors are standing almost shoulder to shoulder with the Space Marines, while the Imperial Guards are like at their chest. I thought Inquisitors were nothing more than regular humans, maybe with some psycher abilities, with un-bound political power.

It has GWs full approval.

Wut? He is the Captain of the Ultramarines 2nd company. The gold trim on the shoulders tells that.

From what I understand inquisitors are often augmented, though more often mechanically than genetically.

Makes sense, although relic has ignored chapter signals before. If he is before Cato, does that mean we could run into a younger Cato in future iterations of the game?

I have no gripes for the plasma weapons, they act and feel like they should. The stalker bolter, I have never seen that one, that one is a lot of fun to use.

Once more though, this game is awesome! Online is the shit!

Where is it depicted in the fluff that plasma-guns are inaccurate and pieces of junk? They overheat or possibly can explode for whatever reason but on top of that, they're inaccurate?

Assuming that any future games follow Titus or second company, you would first need to see a younger Severus Agemman before Cato Sicarius. That being because captain Agemman led second company before he was made captain of the first and succeeded by Sicarius for the leadership of second.


In regards to the size of the inquisitors we see in this game. If I am not mistaken it does look as though they were in variations of power armour, which would only serve to increase their size. Keep in mind that the final inquisitor you see in the game is eye level with Titus's chin.

Damnation is paved on good intentions; subtle and sugar coated or blunt and honest
A hero is someone who steps up when everyone else backs down.
Popularity is what people strive for when they lack the strength to be themselves.


Seriously, is it really that hard to write reviews without spoilers?
