None of those screenshots look anything close to scale to something like DOW, which would have that price tag. Companies aim too high when they need to take a dose of realism.

Cut the price by half and you'd at least have us all (and the rest of the 40k base) investigating it.

I was expecting somewhere around £12 and thought to myself it's probably a bit high but i'll give it a go.
I almost pissed myself when I saw that price and as i'm not pregnant or even a woman this indicates it's probably not a realistic price.........

The game looking like something that came out 10 years ago though? Definitely.

Seriously, why can't we get a decent looking 40k game? The last one that was worth anything was Space Marine, which knocked the brutality, the setting and the overall feeling out of the park.

This? I have games on my mobile phone that has better graphics than this. Sigh.
You do realize the graphic style means they can have more stuff happening on screen right? Don't like it go back to cod.

You do realize that there are games out there, with the same amount of things happening on the screen, that doesn't look like someones graduate project from '98?

And CoD? Please - Diablo 3 and Borderlands 2 all the way here, along with Dawn of War 2. I don't expect much, but I do expect a lot more than what is presented here for that pricetag.

Dude... Have you played Crysis? Dragon Age? Fuck, even Rome 2? Dawn of War 2, even the original Dawn of War look better than this.

Don't like it? Get in the bin.

Seriously, what the fuck is actually going on in the screens?



Look at flames on that megabolter - seriously, there's no AA at all. Looks like it's being played on a potato ffs.

Starting from the top right we have some soldiers who are celebrating christmas by blacking up as zwarte piet,
below them we have a dwarf titan,
slightly to the left we have a group of Orcs who are currently trapped in what appears to be toytown and another band of orcs who have been eating beans (hence the crater they now find themselves in)
the orcs also appear to have commandeered a go kart from a small child,
there are also some space marines who appear to be watching what is happening and little else

And you've just equated "good" game to graphics.

Right, in the bin with you it is.

Meanwhile, it's actually on the steam sale right now - 25% off.

But, while you're there, save your money on that, and pick up the Total War Master Collection for about £3 more, or for the same price as the full price game, pick up the TW Grand Master collection - http://store.steampowered.com/sub/18406/

We're talking about graphics quality. You say it looks like X game, which is pretty good. Connect the dots. It doesn't matter what it looks like if the game is good, true, but that's not what we're talking about. It's the pixelated effects and shitty models.

In all fairness the game is pretty good, the movement and shooting could have been limited to the way the actual tabletop game is played (movement then shooting- as in the NDS WH40K game), but the graphics arent that bad. The still picture taken does not take into account the aminations when they are in full swing. The effects are what you would expect from this form of game. It won't have the same level of detail as the Space Marine game, but hey, thats funding for you.

I am one of those who bought it off steam, and I must say Im pretty impressed with it. Only £20.00 for the download. I do agree that the size comparison of the models is WAY off, but if it is based on a hexagraphic template then it is not that bad.

It does remind me of the planteary empires campaign set, which if you are into that kind of thing, is ok.

You are able to upgrade the forces gradually, according to points you aquire by holding specific hexes on the map, and these points do carry over into the other missions. The choice of upgrade is VAST (especially the astra militarum vehicles). However, some of the weapons do outperform others, which you would expect it to be the other way round ( lasguns doing more damage then a demolisher cannon? WTF!?)

IMO I like this game. I have played it for a few hours and am pretty content with the game and its gameplay dynamic. A few tweaks (possibly bring in other A.M. forces preent on Armageddon) and limiting the movement as what you would expect for troops in the traditional game would be appreciated, It would also be better if the dimension issues were adjusted to represent their correct sizes in relation to other units on the map.

Overall I would probably give it 6.5/10. A few changes, possibly a patch to help adjust some issues with distance and movement/ shooting would bring the score up for me, but it does represent what would actually happen on a battelfield I guess :)
