It's a really nice game if you like Warhammer and dual shoot game.

I guess the game can be a lot more fun with a friend....but I have no friend....that's why I play video-game :'(

This warhammer game reuses assets from the space marine game, not a bad thing. You feel less like a kill team and more like a patient at a doctors office, everything is a waiting game. Everytime you enter a section the game stops and spends 10-15 seconds showing you the area there is no way to skip this. Everytime you die at some parts and restart your faced with another wait period while it explains the same thing again. Even starting new game has a waiting period of 10 secs for no reason. This game is more like heresy that will drive any player to the point of chaos as the ruinous powers of the warp tear their mind apart at how tedious and boring this game is. Could have been a great arcadey shooter if it didnt stop the play ever minute or every area for some panoramic camera showoff of the area. Not a horrible game but not great since it breaks up the action, make sure to only buy it on sale.

Rating: 5/10 Value: $4.99

My second favourite 40K game after the glorious 40K: SPACE MARINE. Liked it on PSN, like it even more on PC (that stable framerate!). Basically the best thing that came out of Dawn of War 2 (models and music are re-used assets of that disappointingly boring sequel) and the closest thing to a 40K arcade game that is going to happen any time soon.

It's neither the prettiest, smartest or otherwise particularly outstanding game under the sun (in fact, it is quite prone to glitching out in some way or the other) BUT it is nicely simplistic, dumb alien blasting twinstick-fun (you point in a direction, stuff dies). Features some nice vistas, good use of color and a truly epic final boss battle. Killing thousands of filthy xenos in the name of the Emperor feels pretty good for the most part, the Dawn of War music playing in the background makes you feel righteously superior over all the pitiful creatures trying to step up to you and mowing down hordes of enemies with a rapid-firing spreadshooting missile-launcher brings a smile to my face. Good thing I don't have to clean up the mess afterwards.

Thumbs up to the devs for not bothering with customizations or RPG-crap - this is a game about slaughtering them all and not showing mercy. Period. The more you kill, certain perks and a few weapons will unlock - but this is no gamechanger and pretty much makes you KILL MORE STUFF ONLY FASTER! Also, 40K: Killteam works great in local coop (you know, like back in the arcade - you and your mate against the odds) and is simple enough to play even when completely smashed.

Might hold only limited appeal if you are not a 40K fanboy but otherwise offers a few hours of slightly mediocre, arcade-ish fun.

A short, fun twin-stick romp in the Warhamamer 40K world. It's not revolutionary, but still fun action for a Saturday afternoon. What better way to spend your time and (life's currency) than to kill xenos for the God-Emperor himself?

The game was ok. I remember getting it on Xbox and it was good. The thing I hate about it is how large groups of orc for example will run straight into to heavy bolter fire just to stand 4 ft behind me to shoot, instead of standing behind some cover or even just in the open to shoot. Melee units are th most common they attemt to flank before attacking. Like one grot will run at me and go straight past to about 3 ft away and then charge at my back...
The camera is very annoying too changing all the time and often in side map views getting pipes and other scenic items in the way. Controls fine not to complex and its a generic spacemaring follow up, bought for the power sword on Xbox. You can buy the power sword on PC.
Play it if your a WH40k fan like me...

I like Kill Team. I like it a lot.

This is the game that introduced me to 40k as "Space Knights vs Space Orcs, roll with it yo". I thought it was awesome.

The game is very clearly a Dawn of War 2 mod, same textures, characters, sounds, and a portion of the scenery. However, it really comes into its own with a very unique location, a kustom Ork Kroozer.

What Kill Team does best is lets you feel like Space Marines are ultimate badasses. Alone or with a friend, you will destory thousands of enemies and disable an entire spaceship without support. That's what 40k and power fantasy is all about.

On the bad side, there are some camera glitches, the upgrades can't be reset which mean's you'll always just use the most powerful weapons you have, and there's no online co-op.

However, I still reccommend just to be empowered and feel like an ultimate Space Marine badass.

I bought this game first and fore most because this was literally the only game I could find on steam that two people could play simultaneously on the same screen.

This game is plain and simple in it's purpose. What makes it fun is having a buddy to play with and blow things up. Would I recommend this game? Only on the pretense you're playing co-op. The game is fun, there are characters to choose from with their own respective powerups that you can choose from. There is usually a melee attack as well as a gun attack that your character has. There is also a powerup that your character is able to use given a cool-down or given you pick up a power up laying around the level. This game has as much playability if you like the Warhammer series.

It's an average game in my eyes : 7/10

This Game really needs an Coop-Mode for Online-PC-Gamers. Not only for two Gamers and one PC.

This is a game for the fans of the 40k universe. If you are new to this world play Dawn of War or Space Marine instead. Those games are much more polished and balanced. If you are going to play this game then play it with a friend if you can. Not only is it poorly balanced for single player but the classes themselves are largely co-dependent. The camera is very poorly programed and if you are unlucky you can die durring cut scenes. To be sure there is plenty of xeno killing action to be had, but overall the game gives a clear feeling of being rushed and poorly constructed purely to make money off of people who are already fans of the franchise.

I played Kill Team on PS3 and it was pretty good, so I bought it for sale on Steam. It freezes at the opening SEGA logo and I can't figure out how to fix it. Aside from that the game itself was a lot of fun on PS3.

A terrible bug ridden disaster. All graphics, assets, and music are ripped straight from DoW 2. The game is 2 and a half hours long and the difficulty doesn't scale meaning if you're playing solo, the amount of enemies and damage they do is the same as if you were playing co-op. Co-op is local only.

This is a lazy port of a terrible game. Avoid at all costs.

This is a long review, so if you want a brief summary of why I recommend Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team skip to Results and read from there.

Nomad Games pushes out a great addition to the Warhammer 40,000 sage with this rendition of a typical Space Marine mission. Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is a top down shooter that offers 4-player co-op adventure that’s entertaining to the end.

Story:
Your mission begins as you encounter an orc ship on route to invade a sector of the imperium. You are sent on a mission of the upmost importance to disable the invasion ship and figure out the orc plans. As your mission progresses you realize this is an impossible mission and completion requires the top fighters. Luckily you’re a member of the Blood Angles one of the elite fighting forces of the Emperors Space Marines chapters. It is up to you and your team to defeat the Warboss and protect the galaxy.

Campaign:
The campaign consists of five-levels, which vary in length based on your play style. Each level took me around 30-minutes, with the campaign lasting about 3-4 hours depending on how many times you die. One of the pit falls is that when you die you typically either get warped back a considerable distance or you have to watch a cinematic again. I didn’t find myself dying too much, so it wasn’t too bad but it could get annoying if you happened to die quite a few times. Overall the campaign is typically a run with a varying missions in-between; either surviving waves of enemies in a confined space, running on exploding platforms, planting explosives, fighting epic boss battles, and more.

Gameplay:
Overall there are a good variety of enemies which keep the game interesting and offering a nice variety. There are four separate classes two melee and two ranged specialists. The classes form a bell curve of extreme range power to extreme melee power. The weapons and ability power-ups are unlocked randomly throughout the campaign and to achieve the best benefits typically involves switching characters between each map. Each class has a special ability that offers even more diversity between each class. The campaign is a top down shooter where hordes of enemies charge at you and you must fight them off either by slashing them apart, blasting them to shreds, or exploding with bombs.

Hints:
>The metla gun is ridiculously over-powered.
>The melee classes are at a huge disadvantage as every mission requires you to use a ranged weapon at some point where power is very important.
>The special abilities are powerful try not to forget about them, there is no point in saving them as you regenerate ability points after killing only a few enemies.


Results:
All and all Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is a great game. Some of the gameplay elements could use adjusting, but it’s nothing that ruins the game. I personally played the game alone and I had a great time and could only imagine it being better with some friends. The gameplay is relatively straightforward and the difficulty curve is well laid out offering a fun campaign at a good length. I would highly recommend this game if you can get it for a good price (I got it for $1.99 and felt that was just the right price).

Pros:
+Four classes with relatively high diversity making them interesting.
+Buffs and weapons unlocked randomly which cause you to switch classes to take advantage of them.
+Five levels with varying missions, strategies, and battles which offer great dynamics.
+Four player co-operative experience (if you have the friends).
+In mission weapon/buff switch to mix things up if you need to.

Cons:
-Relatively expensive for such a short game, $9.99 is rather high for a 3-hour campaign.
-The checkpoints are few and far between and when you die they cause you to watch cinematics without being able to skip them.
-The camera angles can be a pain every now and then causing you to not see what you’re looking for.
-The melee classes were not designed to solo some of the missions very well.

I always liked the Warhammer universe, and even not being a huge fan of top view shooter like Kill Team, i like to play those once in while to change a little since their gameplay is interesting enough to keep me attached to it.

I put Kill Team at par with Halo Spartan Assault in term of entertainement, and for 10 buck if not bought on sale is adquate for the time the game delivers, since you can replay with 5 diferent classes.

One of the aspect i liked more is the power up we get during missions that change the gameplay greatly, the graphic are good for a game with this budget and the sound also very nice with some voices that remind me Space Marine.

In term of story its enough to keep you entertained and add a few things to universe that if you already are inside of it, its interesting, but story isnt what you look in this kind of game, at least for me, when i play a game like this is to have little fun at specific time doing a mission or two and then return other time, so the story isnt really what keep me come back but if its entertainment enough.

The real issue i see in this game is the lack of online coop since it only have local coop, it didnt stoped me from buying but may turn off lots of players bc not everybody have friends available to play at home for what ever reasons.

It is definetly a huge drawback that i dont understand why the Devs didnt go for that since now days, people like to play with others and even more that become to be a standard feature in new games.

If you like this kind of game, Kill Team is good enough to be bought at standand price, but if you arent fan of this type of game, you can get it at very good price on sale for half or even less.

Not much here. Poor port, simple game. Looks good enough, play with a friend and a beer and it's probably ok. But then again, what isen't at that point.

Don't bother with this game unless it's around £1/$1... it's buggy, badly designed, and just feels cheap.

Oh, and good luck getting past the intro to Level 3. A lot of people die in the intro, me included;

This is not a good game. Story's not too bad, although there's not much there. Graphics and aesthetics are fine. Really, what makes this game so bad is the gameplay. The mouse sensitivity and keyboard are laggy and unintuitive. There are no crosshairs to see where your going to be shooting. And the camera. The camera. The camera angles are these terrible, completely set points, and very often you will get stuck in a corner firing blindly offscreen hoping, just hoping, that you will hit something. There are plenty of good 40k games out there. Don't waste your money on this one.

I love my Warhammer 40k games.
But this? No.
Bad port all the way. And it doesn't even support widescreen.
Co-op is broken in all senses. Can't even plug in a second controller.
They both move the first character. Even if one is using a keyboard.

It even tells me what button to press.. On an Xbox pad, when I'm using a keyboard, and mouse.
Really-really, isn't worth it.

Gauntlet meets Warhammer 40k. As long as you go into this game expecting not much all of your expectations will be met. The forced camera angles will give you a headache; the poor transitioning from console to PC will grind your gears; and the story is laughably... well the story is more of a narration, which is to say a disembodied voice will tell you to go "here", or go "there", and destroy "thing". $9.99 is a bit much of an asking price imo. This is more suited for $4.99, and below, venues.

These are my first impressions of the game. I have a video for it for those who perfer watching instead of reading:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yxR2iKxoUDQ&feature=youtu.be
Pros:
You can pick your chapter marines (select few).
4 classes with customizable weapons and perks.
Powerups and grenade.
Survival mode.
Fully voiced codex entries.
Unlockable collectibles.
Local Co-op (2 player).
Drop in Co-op.

Cons:
Repetitive, no variety, there are no weapon pickups in a level.
Performs badly (60fps is easy but tanks with v-sync off between 70 to 220fps).
Can't access graphics options in the middle of a game.
Low resolution textures (although there is nice detail in the environments).
No easy Drop Out co-op.
No online multiplayer.
Camera is bad, it can bug out and get stuck or be at bad angle transitions causing enemies to hit you from off-screen.
No steam trading cards (minor but I feel I should mention it).
Little warhammer implementation, seems like another game with a warhammer skin slapped on it at the last minute.
Heavily re-used assets within the game and many assets used from other warhammer games under the THQ name (this game was originally on console under THQ in 2011)

I will continue playing and my perspective of the game might change a bit but with the gameplay being so boring it won't make much of an impact. Until then buy Renegade Ops or Halo: Spartan Assault instead. Wait for a sale if you REALLY like warhammer and twin stick shooters.

This game is a disgrace to the emperor!
