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.

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.

Played through most of the campaign... way to easy, graphics are not the greatest, maybe if they added some more races for variety it would be a lil better... and yes I know its in BETA so it might just get a lil less sucky...

I actually managed to play through this game, in its Beta state, simply to say that I did it. It managed to be quite dull, unimaginative, and repetitive as each mission required you to place buildings which will build units that you then assign to lanes to attack enemy structures. This wouldn't be so bad if the game weren't so ponderously paced and there were more than 2 useful units. I didn't use assault marines at all throughout the campaign. Also, a good number of the upgrades for your units are essentially useless, and trying to put more than one upgrade on a marine at a time is tantamount to a death sentence because of how drastically it increases their build times.

My overall impressions of this game are very poor. I understand that it's still in beta and there will be tweaks, but all in all I don't have any faith that this project will improve enough to make me want to play it again. It's dull, and not even the beloved Warhammer 40k license can change that. If anything, I'm disappointed that it's a 40k game. If it weren't, I probably wouldn't have even given this game the benefit of the doubt and saved myself $10.

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.

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.
