Space Hulk... the little game that could. You usually look at games with ratings like this one and think that they're crap, but an average rating, especially in this case, means exactly that; it's an average game. It's barely worth it's asking price. The biggest problem with this game is that it simply can't measure up to its competitors, specifically XCOM, which you could have gotten with the money spent on this. Although this is a very fun game, it's just painfully average. It doesn't have much longevity, is very limited in terms of features or replayability, along with overall production quality. It's a game that will always feel like it's in a beta, know what I mean? Even if you take advantage of the 2 player multiplayer repeatedly, it's hard to justify the money spent on this. Regardless of how much you may have loved the board game or Warhammer, it's just hard to recommend this over other titles... specifically XCOM. DLCs extend the life of this generic product, but cost even more money. They're asking a lot for what is little more than an Indie title. While the graphics are nicer than a cheap 2D game, that's basically where the advantage list ends. They are pricing this well above normal 10-15$ Indie titles, and you're not getting that value in return.
At the end of the day, it's not a game that's going to upset you, it's just one that's going to disappoint you because you probably wish the Warhammer license was going to bigger games like it used to. We used to get Dawn of War or Space Marine level titles with this license, now we get a port of a board game and a copy/paste unit lane game(Storm of Vengeance). Next it'll probably be Warhammer Solitaire, or Warhammer Bingo, and we'll be even more depressed about the death of this license. If there's one thing to make the THQ closure a sad day for the industry, it's that it basically took the Warhammer universe with it. Hopefully Eternal Crusade will finally breath life back into this franchise by giving us a triple A title that it deserves.
Do I recommend this game? That's a tough one. It's not really a bad game. I quite enjoy it. It's just hard to justify paying what they want for it. Even off a discount, it doesn't stand up against other titles, which you also could have gotten off a discounts(You could have gotten XCOM for 10$ if you wanted). If this is something you can support, either because you want a video board game, or like the license that much, I say to go for it. There's worse things to spend your money on or worse things to support. The developers definitely tried to make this as good as they could; patching it for many months post release and rolling out DLCs; it was not just a cash grab or another product skinned with Warhammer to sell it. They liked the license as much as any fan and the game was based on the Warhammer board game from the start. I'm recommending the game, but I do so with a frown and a little disappointment.
