It is a lot of fun with 4. The missions are on planets and similar. It would be a better description to say that it is a cross between TF, L4D and Alien Breed. It is nothing to do with GW and there is nothing similar to 40k in the game.
I think they will need to improve the way that game groups are formed though, but that will probably be patched.
Goddamn this is awesome! I loved the original Alien Swarm when it was a UT mod, and I can't wait to try this out Seriously fun in groups, we used to use groups of 6, and you really really had to use tactics and communicate as you played, or you'd be dead very quickly.
Thanks for pointing it out, I'm going to download it now
As for "Law suit worthy", this game has more in common with the Aliens movie franchise than with Space Hulk. No lawsuit would ever be made, because no lawsuit would ever win.
It just looks like a generic sci-fi shoot em' up to me. I don't see anything particularly 'Space Hulk-like' about it, not unless GW decides it owns the rights to the very concept of Space Soldiers fighting bug aliens.
If that's the case, then Robert A. Heinlein would like a word with GW.
Maybe it's 'cause I'm somewhere around the 30 hour mark of not sleeping, but that game's controls seemed bloody awful and people have a habit of walking in front of your shots constantly and then getting pissed off about it. I'll give it another try tomorrow or later on and see if that helps any.
