Fun for Everyone, Awesome for 40K Fans

I had a ton of fun with this game - it looks good, plays well, sounds great, and moves right along. It's not mind-blowing or revolutionary, but it does have some nice additions to the third-person shooter formula like the heal-by-killing system and the jump pack implementation. I've even found myself playing the multiplayer a lot, which isn't normally my thing. But really this game clicked for me because of the setting. I used to really love playing the Warhammer 40k minis game, but time and expense and life have meant I haven't rolled those dice or used those Blood Angels of mine in probably five or six years.

This game gets that world right in all the important ways, big and small. If you're a fan of 40k, this game will really pay off.
