Why Space Marine? Why?

Review: Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine

I have just finished playing Space Marine. I had a lot of fun but I feel a bit let down by some bad decisions by the game developers. 

First of all, while the character art is awesome, the game world is a lack luster affair. Not much detail has been put into the world and all the levels look the same.  

But the greatest sin committed by the developers they left for last. There is no end boss battle! Instead, the final battle was replaced with a series of fucking quick time events! They took the thing we love and replaced it with the thing we hate.

Seriously, there must have been more than a hundred people involved with the development of this game. Did nobody at one stage put their hand up and say that this is a stupid idea? 

Jokes aside though, Warhammer is non-stop action rollercoaster with very little to hold you back from getting into the action. You don’t need to hunt far for ammo pickups and you always have at least one weapon on you that won’t run out of ammo. Health is also no problem since it regenerates when not in battle. 

If you are a fan of any of the Warhammer games you should definitely get this game.
