Bland, uninspired Plants vs Zombies clone.
The Emperor expects more.

This is a Horrible, laggy, and buggier than kim Kardashian's Crotch!

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME

At first, the gameplay seems... Tolerable, but they repeat the same thing, over and over, Becoming more and more repetitive, more and more like a chore to play, Claiming to be a "Strategy game" When the Only strategy involved is on the same level of Plants Vs Zombies!

Sale Recommendation: -90% Off.

It's a tough break for this Warhammer 40K tug-of-war game. I wanted, so very badly to enjoy this game. I picked it up because the Dark Angels chapter never received enough love in my eyes.

First the good news: The storyline and written dialogue is spot on. The game offers pretty solid 3D animations, except with noticeable glitches. The fundamentals of the gameplay are actually pretty awesome.

Now for the long-winded "But,": There are simply way too many interface bugs which force the player to restart what could have been an otherwise good match. These experiences become more noticeable and frustrating towards the end-game where every move really counts. You hope to sweep down the line of maurauding Orks with a heavy bolter, all of the sudden you are unable to click on your unit. The interface doesn't offer the user any notice of when their unit has been interrupted by an enemy attack, leaving you clicking wildly at buttons which should be greyed out.

The 2D interface felt splotchy and rough, with misaligned text noticeable everywhere on smaller resolutions.
The cross-platform and multiplayer features do not function as advertised, with the multiplayer servers down.

The icing on the cake is when you finish through the entire Dark Angels campaign:
The game's singular achievement does not trigger, even if you 100% every bonus mission.
Don't pick this one up any time soon, unless it receives some serious update love.

This is a terrible, terrible game. Lane strategy with cards? As a lover of Warhammer 40,000, I figured I would give this a try. However... I regretted my purchase immensely. No card game mechanics, no strategy to speak of whatsoever, this is immensely disappointing. The gameplay is stale and boring, with the creation of buildings leading to the deployment of units in up to 5 lanes. There are some minor variations, but nothing really worthwhile. A lot of this is also actually RNG-based instead of revolving around any worthwhile strategy.

The lack of depth and progression is only matched by the fact that the skills and abilities are nothing spectacular either. The graphics are pretty poor, but considering the rest of the game, especially with the buggy interface... just save yourself the trouble, and keep your money in your wallet for something worthwhile. The voice acting, what little there is, is reasonable, but the rest of the audio is mediocre at best.

I did not expect a Games Workshop licensed game to be this poor. Learn from my mistakes, and avoid this game. My favourite part was when I uninstalled.

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.

Horribly cheap, Plants vs Zombie-like lane game, its a decent past time game but with hundreds of free flash games out there just like this, the lack of depth and progression system, mixed with the fact that they wasted the 40k license on this games makes me feel disgusting that they did this instead of giving the license out to a studio that actually wants to make a game.

I would imagine myself playing this on a pad or smart phone, if only to get more Dark Angels story but honestly, don't get this, save your money and either buy models, a 40k novel or anything but this. This is by far the worst 40k video game. And as a Dark Angels player this makes me sad as hell, to see them dishonor their own game like this.

When I heard Lane-strategy I thought it was going to be a dota-clone and that actually would have been this, but this game does provide decent voice acting, though they didn't bother to voice act the majority of the dialgoe that's in plain text, the game feel like a Facebook game and its not worth the price their asking for, had this been anything else than 40k, I would have been surprised, but Games Workshop at its finest, is yet again trying to squeeze money out a rock.

Terrible! A poor tower-defence which is cashing in on the 40k universe. I've tried to give it a few goes (4 hours) but frankly it's just hard to even like. Even the 'puzzle' style levels rely on luck with the RND as well as knowing the right strategy. A true regret purchase, the fact I own bad rats (don't ask!) is the only thing stopping this taking the title of 'worst game I own'.

Warhammer 40k Storm of Vengeance is a lane defence strategy game developed by Eutechnyx. Eutechnyx themselves were originally founded in 1987 and their previous titles include The Fast & the Furious: Tokyo Drift, Big Mutha Truckers, NASCAR and did I mention Ride to Hell: Retribution.

The general premise of each battle is simple. Send units to destroy the buildings on the enemies side. Once you have destroyed the buildings you capture the lane. To win a battle capture 3 lanes while making sure the enemy doesn't destroy yours. Each unit and building costs redemption points to produce. Buildings like communication relays build up your redemption points over time. So the idea is to have some redemption production buildings and some unit producing buildings at any one time. There is also the resolve resource, through the skill tree you can unlock special units which cost resolve to field. Resolve is accumulated by turning one of the unit production building into a resolve production building, which halts unit production. While the game may claim to have strategy in reality there’s little to be had, once you grasp the mechanics and limited upgrade system, you can easily win battles without having to put any kind of concentration in what so ever.

In between battles there is a progression system where by you can unlock new units, upgrades and special abilites that use the redemption resource. The progression system is very simplistic and there is no real meat to get your teeth into here, its a very straight forward system that offers little to be excited at. You end up playing the game on fast speed because there's no real reason to watch everything at normal speed, I don't want to see the same battlefield background and same kill animation over and over.

The major issue I have with Storm of Vengeance is that it is lazy and not just lazy, it's lazy to the extreme. Storm of Vengeance's mechanics are an exact and I mean exact replica of Eutechnyx's previous mobile title ninja cats versus samurai dogs. The only major difference between the two titles is that storm of vengeance has slapped some 3D models in there and covered itself with a Warhammer 40k skin.

Storm of Vengeance's story follows the events of the Dark Angels defence of Piscina IV against the green skin tide of the orks. While the story is interesting and is in cannon, it again feels lazy with no effort to make it even slightly entertaining, I mean hell, you didn't build the mechanics from the ground up so why not put in some effort into voice acting or something to make it enjoyable, it just looks and feels poorly executed.

Just because you slap a 40k skin on something doesn't make it codex astartes material. The game lacks any resemblance to a real Warhammer 40k experience and because of this it feels like a blatant licensed cash in. This game could literally be anything, you could place any franchise skin over this game and it would be the exact same.

Now putting the repetitive mechanics and lack of actual strategy aside for one moment, there was also a wee bit of controversy that needs to be discussed. When Storm of Vengeance originally hit steam, I like many thought it was the actual release. Then under closer inspection, the title had beta written at the end. Oh, so it's an early access game I thought, nope. So wait you ask, your saying they just released on steam with beta tagged on the end of the title? Yes pretty much, I couldn't believe it. The first thing I couldn't believe is that Steam allowed that to even happen, if a game is not complete it goes through the early access program, full stop. Second, you cannot just throw beta on your title and expect that to save you from criticism. Even worse the developers at first said there wasn't time for the game to go under early access, which as we know is now utter bull ♥♥♥♥ since since a backlash they quickly went to hide under early access. That kind of thing is seriously dodgy stuff, as a developer you should know not to pull that kind of ♥♥♥♥ and you should definitely know that if you do, your going to get called out on it.

Anyway back to the actual game. The thing is with Storm of Vengeance is that its fun for about 10 minutes and then after that it's not. It's a shallow mobile title and that is exactly what is should only be, a mobile title. This is not a core gaming experience that fans of the franchise want, what it is however is something to pass the time on the train to work. Look at it this way On Steam Storm of Vengeance costs £6.99. On iOS and Android it costs £2.99, for the exact same game. So if you want to get it, but it on your mobile device and use it as a superficial time passer.

For a warhammer game, there isnt alot of war going on. Its one unit at a time, or a couple 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 rites of the exterminatus!!!
