Whilst I can understand that alot of people are disappointed with the game for what it is, you get what you pay for - I would personally rather pay a full 40-50 pounds for a Top A-Title from the Games Workshop IP.

If you only pay around a fiver, you need to have certain expectations, sadly even despite expecting it to be a very very basic game, it was incredibly simple, extremely repetitive and you could determine whether you were going to complete the level within the first minute.

Having been through and completed all the campaign missions to 100%, there has yet to been an actual ending to the game. I also seem to have not been granted the single lone achievement for completion. All in all, it's not a very good game but it makes me appreciate the other games released under the IP, such as DOW and Space Marine.

It seems that Games Workshop is slowly becoming a cash cow, rather than the company with strict standards to protect it's trademark and intellectual property that we are used to.

This game is currently like a paid Beta test, with features haphazardly added to it. I don't know why this was not put into "Early Access".
If you play this in any other language than English (you don't have any other choice if your OS language is different), be prepared to weep...

While typing this the one word that kept coming to mind was ... dull.

If you have $9.99 to spare and will do anything to have a Warhammer title no matter the quality then, uhm, ... ok i guess so.

WH 40k:SoV is a repetitive un-inspired Warhammer themed game and at best an average lane defence game. It has bland sound effects, and the graphics are dull with neither using to any potential the richness that could be put in considering the source material around which it is themed. Ignoring the WH 40K theming the graphics are still, especially the backgrounds , dull and the sounds bland.

Over all the game is not as much fun as some free to download TD or LD games. The usage of Warhammer 40K imagery is irrelevant as it ignores the mythos created around Space Marines and treats them as literal cannon fodder (or like Imperial Guardsmen for the WH 40k fan) to be wasted in useless lane combat.

I would say at best i would give this game 4/10 and that is because I am a fan of Warhammer 40k and so just skinning it to represent the noble and glorious Adeptus Astartes gives it a few points.

I must add an addendum now though. After a few more hours of play I have to say that it is mildly addictive and will eat up some time initially. I reckon I may play an hour once every month or two till i bore of it for a bit again.

Don't bother unless your going to play this on your tablet, and even then, don't bother. I love 40K and Games Workshop, so take notice when I say, don't bother. Played through 20 missions in an hour. No challenge at all, once you figure out the formula it's a no brainer. Missions were lasting at most 1:57.
