Rated 7 out of 10 by Wxmyjnsn If your into linear games with no replayability
This is your game. I LOVE the War Hammer series and I think its awesome to be inside that universe. The game is quite linear, there is no jumping or climbing or any of that, you just walk where the game wants you to. You kill everything there and move on. The missions are pretty simple and no thought need be given to doing anything but killing. There is no cover system either so there is no strategy to any of the battles. your best bet is to wade into the hoard and slash away. The graphics are good and the sound is of good quality. The game could have been SO much better had they added in some elements from the DOW II series like letting you outfit your marine in different addons. This is a great game for what it is a linear romp through the Warhammer universe but left me wondering why they left out some of the best parts of gaming. The MP is about the same as any other game, same standard goal and things. Just you look like a space marine instead of a regular marine. The most cool thing in the game is the jump pack! That is fun and sadly not used enough in the single player. Buy it but wait for the price to come down, not worth 50 bones.
Rated 9 out of 10 by FootOfGork For the Emperor
This game portrays the warhammer world so perfectly, the battle fields look grim and are full of darkness. The game is from start to finish very intense over all. YOu are constantly overwhelmed by your foes. ANd you must use all your weapons at your disposal to survive. And to top it off it has a fun and entertaining multiplayer. The only cons to this game is the fact that it is very very short i beat it in 2 sits, of a total of about 9hrs of gameplay. THo the mulitplayer does keep you interested and has not gotten old to me yet. Also i wish the story line would have been far more in depth such as the warhammer novels. Then again if they were the lesser warhammer fans would not have a clue as to what the H*** was going on...... But all togther i recommened this game to anyone looking for an intense action packed game =)

I did not realize this till the week of its release, and it is something i will be e-mailing Gamestop to complain about. On the page for the PC Version of Warhammer 40k: Space Marine, it lists the Emporer's Elite Bonus pack as the Pre-order Bonus for ordering threw Gamestop. This is listed on the same page as the link to purches the 'new' copy, and 'digital' copy. BUT, if you click the option to buy the digital copy, the pre-order bonuse CHANGES. Instead of getting the Pre-order skins pack "Emporer's Elite". You instead are given a 'free' copy of a completely different game "Darksiders". you do NOT recieve the skin pack you thought you were getting. It seems you ONLY get the skin pack if you order the Hard Copy of the game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by ToToDot Good game.
This game to me is a good game. Not the worst not the best. It is fun with the gore and slashing. The game is similiar to Gear of war to me.. No one else agree? It has third person view and the main character are bulky as the gear of war soldiers. It has similiarity but space marine to me is the cheap kind. Not saying it is bad but it does not look the best graphic. It is a good game i recommend it when it is cheap.

From Fire Warrior to Dawn of War to Space Marine. The 40k genre might have started as a table top game but it has proven many times it can have great success in the video game industry. Not only is there so much to the 40k universe the developers that have gotten the chance to develop these games have done an amazing job.
(Side note, totally buying this from here to have the black templar armor!)
Rated 8 out of 10 by ToToDot This game is fun!
This game is seriously fun with hack and slashing! You see lot of killing and blood gore and it just is a fun awesome battle. You actually can die easy but thats the fun part. The game is simliar to gear of war. They are both good though. This game has online. The problem with this game it has to have Steam if you do not like it do not get it. Fun game and it does not get boring.
Rated 10 out of 10 by customcowboy Great game, terrible service
I love the WH40k series and this game just tops them all. I love the blood and gore. the ability to charge sword first into battle and also blast the heads clean off orcs. I cant wait to see what THQ does next :)
Rated 0 out of 10 by Yobobjm Looking Forward To It
I have been a huge warhammer 40k fan from the dawn of war series to the tabletop game and am definitely looking forward to it, the only reason I have not pre-ordered it is that I don't know which system will have the biggest mutliplayer crowd.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Noval The way to redeem the DLC skin
To all those who pre-order the digital version of Space Marine: after installing the game on steam, run your game through impulse, and the redeem code of the Emperor's Elite pack will show up automatically. Then activate it over steam.
