Reviews

“I really think they’ve nailed it – both the strategy and the feel, retaining what makes Space Hulk Space Hulk while convincingly turning it into a videogame, not a mere boardgame made from pixels.”
Rock Paper Shotgun

“In every significant way, it looks and feels like the board game I remember from back in the day, fleshed out to match the Warhammer 40K vibe we’ve experienced in other games.”
Venturebeat

“Full Control has recreated the board game in almost perfect detail, from the design on the hulk’s floors to the individually-named First Chapter Blood Angel Terminators of the Sin of Damnation campaign.”

Adaptation of the classic Games Workshop board game. Full of all the randomness that comes with GW's dice. Hard as hell, but good tactics will pay off in the end.

I played the original board game back in the day (late 1980s) - and it was one of the best board games ever devised. I played the previous Space hulk video games (Space Hulk on Amiga and Space Hulk vengence on PC/PS2?) and they too were excellent.

I bought this Space Hulk video game (and I bought it on iOS for my iPad too) pretty much as soon as I saw it - and I rarely buy games not on sale.

This version of Space Hulk was very close to the board game. The initial build of the game was OK(ish) - good core gameplay, but quite a few flaws that needed to be (and were) sorted out with later patches. As this Space Hulk was so close to the board game, I was dissapointed that the original board game expansions (Deathwing and Genestealer) were never added to the base game as DLC, but you can't have everything I guess.

The game mechanics are solid, there are a good set of scenarios linked into a story, the AI opponent is competent and - most importantly - the scenarios are well designed and balanced. If you play well you will win (probably, unless you have some very bad dice rolls). If you play badly you will lose (and lucky dice won't save you). Only downside is you can't play scenarios as the Tyranids against the computer's Terminators on solo.

Personally, so far, I prefer this Space Hulk to Space Hulk:Ascention. I've played this Space Hulk through start to end on iPad, and again on PC, but I'm just not as keen on the added complexity/customisation element of Ascention.

Overall its an excellent game, particularly at the price it often appears on sale.

If you've ever felt like rolling 0's and instadying in the tabletop original is a bliss, you will surely like missing point blank shots in this game analogue having second to none power over its RNG rolls or instadying from a counter attack during your own turn. Feels soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo god.

At first first I was like.... No way the combat is really gonna be this simplistic for the entire game.

Every level is just you trying to kill infinitely spawning ♥♥♥♥ before they get within mellee range. While you move to a certain location.

The AI spawns and runs at you. thats it.

I was tired of the game after an hour and will probably never play it again.

This is a great game. It really pushes you to think and I love it. Space Hulk is like a board game, you take turns with your people against the aliens. You sometimes have different goals for different maps but most goals are to kill all the aliens. Its so fun and so creative. The character models look amazing as well. This game gets the AMERICAN ratting of 9/10. I recommend this game to all.

A quite decent tactical game well worth a discounted price. It's not as good as some others (XCOM to give an example), but those who like tactical games should definitely give it a try. Although there basically is no variety in units, especially enemy units, some missions provide a very good challenge, but are not too frustrating if you take a minute or two to think and generally the game is fun, albeit a bit too slow.

I love this game. A faithful recreation of the board game which was exactly what I was looking for. Can be slow at times but its a game that makes you think and plan out you moves otherwise you will get slaughtered pretty quickly. Extremely satisfying mowing down those pesky genestealers.

Blast from the past. If you like the board game of the same name, you'll probably love this. If not, note that this is not an action game and it's not remotely fair. Whatever happens, it depends mostly on dice rolls.

Short review:
If you're really into Space Hulk/ Warhammer 40k, or have a friend you really want to play this with, you might as well get it no matter what.
If not, imagine a tower defense, where your towers can move, but miss all the time and might blow up due to sheer bad luck and gameplay is generally slow. Still sounds fun to you? Well, if you're enough of a masochist, enjoy, otherwise, better keep away.

The experience of the game:
If you play any Warhammer as a tabletop game, with a friend, or fellow players in one room, every move, every single dice roll can build up sweet tension, your strategy vs. your opponents, your luck vs. theirs and every time one of you makes an awesome move or seems to beat the odds, it can be hillarious.
The game might translate the mechanics perfectly, but no matter what, it can not translate this feeling and at least for me, this is doing a lot and seems to turn the whole game into an ok puzzle at best and a boring random number generator at worst.

Sometimes there might be a positive feel to it, if you pull of a good move, strengthening your position, or barely getting out of a tight situation. But, most of the time there is no feeling of achievement, when just another one of the hundreds of generic enemies you encounter dies, nor if you complete a level, really. On the other hand it can be rather frustrating, if the randomness turns against you big time, like a single enemy running down a hallway, all overwatch shots missing, the bolter jamming 4 times in a row and then your unit is dead and the whole mission might fall appart. Bad luck, rinse and repeat?! Meh.

In addition to that, both visuals and sounds are just bad. Again, if it's tabletop, your imagination might fill in cool effects and so far, no graphics engine can beat good imagination. But, if a program shows you, how your unit is shooting the wall, while an enemy in the hallway next to it falls in a weird splash of red, that might be funny the first time, but in the end is just, well, really bad. It's pretty much the same with moving animations, first time it might look funny when your terminator is awkwardly wiggling backwars around a corner, but at some point it's just awkward. Also, it's good that you can crank up the animation speed, otherwise i might've died of boredom just watching unit movement.

So i prefer... playing anything else.

I like Space Hulk the board game and this is a mechanically true implementation of it. As such, it will likely be most appealing to individuals immersed in the Warhammer 40K universe and who are familiar with the original game's mechanics. SH uses the Third Edition ruleset and scenarios.

The main weakness, for me, is the Genestealer A.I. The computer is very easy to aggro and will always push ahead with its blips, rather than holding them back as lurkers ahead of the marines' line of advance. This makes the original 3e campaign fairly easy to complete with careful play. The DLC campaigns seem to recognize the A.I.'s weaknesses and work to compensate for it by forcing the marines to be more aggressive through time limits and other stressors.

I found the game to be achingly slow on a non-gaming laptop, but it motors along at quite a nice pace on a dedicated platform. I turned the animations up to the fastest setting and that was fine. Sound effects are decent (storm bolters, in particular, pack a wallop).

Pick it up on sale if you like the original board game and the price is right.

If you like Warhammer 40k there's no reason not to buy it.
And if you know the Warhammer 40k tabletop, you know that the dice can be a real b*tch at some point of the game.
Here it's the same - sometimes you roll like a god - next turn/mission you are a power-axe swinging terminator on guard and instantly die after the first attack.

I now have played ~8h and only completed about 10 missions, as i had to restart some missions over and over again.
And if you want all those achievements too... oooooh my... that will take ages.

So if you're not one of those guys getting frustrated too easily - get it.
The game is not that expensive and will take you for hours into dark hallways of a space hulk full of gene-stealers!

Blood for the Bloodgod!
Oh... wrong company ^_^
