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.

For a warhammer game, there isnt alot of war going on. Its one unit at a time, or a coupe and thats it. If the menu was the game a controller would be useful since that is the only place where the controller works, way to go Eutechnyx. The name of the studio who made this tablet port garbage is Eutechnyx. Try saying it.... "Eutechnyx". Ugh, it sounds like that noise cat's make when their coughing up a hairball, or that garbled sound right before you puke after a few too many on a night out. That puke on the floor is this game, its a game vomited onto steam with no connection to the warhammer universe or any of the fun. After about ten minutes you will want to trigger your own gag reflex to get rid of this game. The space marines are puke green, and the orks are puke green, with its brown poo covered background it makes for a work of art made of poo and puke. Why did the dev stop there? Why not just call it a day by adding festering maggots to the mix or whatever else is gross that makes you wanna throw up.

This game is a perfect metaphor for being drunk. Met some person at a bar or in this case a game, looked pretty awesome, then ya woke up and realized what a bad decision it was to get this game. Theres not enough alcohol in the universe to make this game any good, getting alcohol poisoning then having your stomach pumped is the equivalent of this game.

This game deserves an orbital bombardment of cyclone torpedos from an orbital platform performing the rights of the exterminatus!!!

''I Fink i 'ave wot dem Umies kall ''buyers remorse'' or Sumfin.. - Warboss Grizrak.''

I'll admit it, i purchased this game as soon as i saw it was 40k title if nothing else then to support the franchise (and orks are amazingly fun to play as in just about any game there in) but i really wish i put more time into researching this and if id known what i do now id of certainly spend my money on somthing more worthwhile.

Aside from the game being cheaper on the iOS store the game was developed by Eutechnyx, if the name sounds familiar take a look at a game called Ride to Hell Retribution, oh my are we already off to a good start! granted this game is nowhere near the atocity for the formentioned but WH40:SoV does maintain the companies reputation of rather lackluster titles.

Ingame 'cutscenes' if they can be called that use still images taken from the tabletop rulebooks rather then having an art team create origional illustrations and even go as far as to use sculpted parts from the table top game models as icons for the game (The Ork upgrades are a good example of this), Audio is present for the units if rather repetitive 9much like its gameplay) and are also absent from those still image cutscenes.. the game as a whole can best be discribed as 'lazy' and 'found wanting'.

You'd think with how rabid Games Workshop have been over the years to guard its intellectual property like a overly bloated and aggressive dog guards is favorate chewtoy they would take better care of who they allow to use there licence but apparently having there asses handed to them by the consumer losing 24% of there shares value this year alone has made GW all the more desperate, if this gets any more dare we may find them Selling off a tied and bound Matt Ward off to the linch mob with the biggest wallet!

Also why the hell would they have a company thats more renound for there racing games develop a Lane strategy game? there clearly out of there element, personally Id of made them work on and complete a racing game based on your old GorkaMorka game! the one that was going to be launched on the dreamcast but died with the system, then you'd actually have a decent game thats not only a gritty and violent version of Mario Kart but also allow Eutechnyx redeem themselves for such a shoddy track record.

The only way they could really make this any worse was if they added micro transactions so you can unlock new units and paintjobs for alternative space marine chapters and Ork Klans... Oh, nevermind, it's called DLC now... DLC for a game thats just been released can could use all the help it can get, and its behind a paywall with a game thats already overpriced for entry simply for being a PC port.

Shame on Games Workshop for having little care of there franchise to green light this, Shame on Eutechnyx just in general and shame on me for buying this game before doing the research or waiting for more reviews, dont make the same mistake i did, you want a good warhammer game? Dark Omen, Chaos Gate, The Dawn of War series, Hell even fire warrior you have so many options and better purchases to get your 40k fix, just not this.

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.
