Used to be warhammer lover
10 years ago
Well, i was looking for a game where you run around in a massive army like dynasty warriors, i love warhammer so even though this is an RTS i gave it a try. and i played every warhammer 40k RTS game and installment for the PC and loved them all. I had high expectations, good graphics, amazing animations, cutscenes, finishing moves in the fighting, all of which the PC version has! well picked up this game and got it home, threw it in the xbox and seemed ok at first. i quickly realized you better have a laptop or splitscreen on your tv on cause the units take so long to move that you need something else to entertain you while your playing. So i played the first level, ok easy enough, went to the the second level, wow, alot more difficult! after losing my hero i failed the mission and decided i needed to play the tutorial to learn a little more. played the tutorial and got so bored and frustrated with the bad instructions in the tutorial i had to turn it off, YA! the tutorial was frustratingly difficult! out of the 100+ games ive owned i have never had to return one before or even thought about it, i cant believe i considered it. after work the following day i went to return it, (thankfully i bought used.) I went to gamestop to return it, they ended up being closed since it was sunday. So i figured, well i have it for another day, maybe i should give it 1 more shot. played the tutorial again, actually got through it this time! sweet! still slight difficult with explanation. but i still beat it. i replayed the second level, cool got through alot of it, unfortunatley the controls are horrible, cluttered, and rediculous! i would need to study them like i study in college to memorize it.. no joke, they might as well given me a 40 button controller for this. CONTROLS ARE TERRIBLE, i hope you understand that. you try selecting one hero and you get a million men, "click thumbstick to select everybody on screen" yet when i click thumbstick it selects everybody on map. anyways i ended up horribly outnumbered with no idea how to take down enemy numbers before they got close enough. the long range soldiers were pitiful at minimizing enemies and i could not fight close because of the massive outnumbering. got close to the end, and was horribly outnumbered again and lost my hero. sat and decided to try again or stop waisting my time. i thought, well i want to try the skirmish, when i played warhammer (the actual models) i played skaven, so i went to Skirmish mode to play skaven, game claims you can play 6 armies. went into skirmish mode, and couldnt figure out how to change my army! no instructions on how to help me change my army! all i wanted to do was play skaven! i guess not! after spending 15 minutes in the Team/Army menu, i gave up, and decided to just play the skirmish on the only army they would let me. Elves, cooool :( i started the skirmish and told my army to start walking, after about 45 seconds they moved 10 feet... ALRIGHT! ENOUGH! i chose to stop waisting my time. I loved warhammer and cannot believe out of all the games i have to return, this has to be it! ive never writen a review before, and this game was so terrible it drove me to this time. im sure i left out more. but i think you get the picture, I would not recommed this to anybody unless you want to as a prank. i hope this helps anybody with this decision to buy this or not.
