A top-down shooter in the warhammer universe. Not a too good, but not too bad either. Because top-down shooter fans don't have too big collection to choose from and most participant is pretty bad i must recommend this, as it's playable at least.
Pros:
- Cool graphics,.Not too sophisticated, but does the job. I love warhammer style, especially the ork's statues are funny cool.
- Great sound, even the music is 'there'.
- Solid gameplay.
-4 different chars, but the gameplay only slighty differs.
Cons:
- Short, only 5 levels.
- No difficulty settings, and the 3rd and the last levels are pretty hard for mediocre players.
- Awfull checkpoint system, too big gaps between each.
- The camera is fixed and operated by the game. Sometimes, not even rarely, it goes behind walls or simply shows the other way rather than where you wanna see.
- Unskippable gamescenes. That's the worst! You die and start from the last checkpoint, but mostly all starts with a gamescene you have to view again and again and again. I had some pretty bad thoughts about the designers and the testers.

6/10 Better than mediocre top-down shooter. Fun for a playthrough.

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.

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.

Despite being a huge Warhammer fan, I have to strongly advise you to not buy this game.

- The Game is 5 Missions long, which I finished in 2 hours. So beware of that.
- Out of 4 Classes, 2 are virtually useless because being a melee class just ends up getting you killed extremely fast.
- Minor bothers like asset re-using from other Dawn of War games.

However, basically this would be a competent and fun twin-stick shooter but two things kill this game entirely. Glitches and the worst camera of gaming. Seriously, the camera is pure sin. I had to restart so many times because the camera decided it doesn't want to follow me anymore, and even when it works it tends to be in really bad spots.

And the most notable glitch I experienced was with moving platforms, aka elevators. I don't know what was wrong but my Marine and enemies would glitch through or get bounced off from it, falling to my death.


Tl;dr
---------
I had to start the third Mission like 14 times because I died in the cutscene to the elevator. I died in the cutscene. Don't buy this broken piece of Warhammer blasphemy. Go buy Space Marine instead.

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.

The game is not bad .. still its nice kill hordes of Orcs .. but I see 3 problems with this game: 1. sometimes camera is not workin like should and U have to restart game from last checkpoint; 2. sometimes U fight much more with camera than with orcs; 3. there is no option to play co-op with friends. but still its a game in W40k word so it is more for fanatics than for normal players

This game plays a lot like an arcade sidescroller only a little more free in movement. You'll go from stage to stage completing objectives and killing enemies. The power-ups are fun to use and are spaced out to not make it too hard or too easy. The four classes are a little varied between melee or ranged focus. There is no online co-op, but there is a local co-op. Since this is a console port, you will need a controller for the second player. Keyboard controls are acceptable for solo, my only complaint being that sometimes you need to go diagonal or similar directions to not fall off a platform and keyboard controls aren't perfect for those range of movements.

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?

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 :'(

There is much difficulty in reviewing a lot of Warhammer40K games because while most of them are functional, polished as a product, and arguably loyal to the tabletop lore (let's not get into Codex wars though, I'm a filthy Chaos Marine) they somehow lack an extra spark of fun that would distinguish them among the mediocrity.

Don't get me wrong, I love Warhammer40K. The only reason I joined Steam, originally, was to play the Dawn of War series. I would be the first person to sing my praise to high heavens for an Orks (and Nids) Must Die! set in Warhammer40K universe.

As a software, it functions: it runs smoothly on my 4 year old potato, there is no glaring glitch or bug, and while some may complain about the obvious port it does not assign R2 button to your melee command so there's that.

The problem, again, is that infuriating question of fun and lack thereof. Considering this is not a lore-centric title with the sole purpose of slaying Orks, it fails to deliver anything but disappointment--I mean, I had absolutely no expectations and I was still let down. Camera seems to exist only to fuel your wrath, power-ups and perks are as stock as they can be (because of how bland they are, the super-serious announcement voice for power-ups is all the more cringe-inducing), and the sound effects seem to nag you with existential, self-doubting question: why the hell are you playing this game where guns don't even sound like guns?

The whole project, from the announcement voice to uninspired gameplay to its mini-game length, has something of a business-like air to it, like the game was not something the developers wanted to make but a soul-sapping obligation on their contract to churn out an action-oriented Warhammer40K game. As a fan of the series, its universe, factions and Emperor-knows-what-else, nothing is more disheartening than this.

Co-op will not change the lack of entertainment or soul in this game, so don't drag your friend or family into this. If you want a good co-op Ork-slaying experience, play Orcs Must Die 2.

If you are looking for a fun way to unwind at the end of the day, this is a well done twin stick shooter. It lets you switch off, and just get to the dakka! with lots of greenskins to terminate (and more), stuff to collect and unlock. If you enjoy the 40k universe and want some simple fun, this is well worth the price of entry. The visuals are respectable, and the sound and voice over is well done. If you buy into this knowing what it is, and if that is an experiece you appreciate then you will enjoy this. I own this on the consoles (both the ps3 and 360 versions), and I am often away from the TV's, so bought it again here on steam because it's just plain fun.

If you're not a fan of the Warhammer 40K universe, skip this. Otherwise it is a fun casual top down arcade shooter. Online co-op support would have made it a better value.

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.

I didn't expect much from this. And while it's never going to top the Greatest Games Ever list, it turned out to be a pleasant surprise.

The voice acting and music are solid, both informative and thematically appropriate. The graphics are serviceable, and the physics interactivity is balanced just right to give weight to the combat without the bounciness Havok can occasionally lead to. It also allows for a bit of strategy, as heavy objects can be moved to provide cover. And the combat feels right, too - the Orks come at you in a tide that feels *almost* - but not quite - unstoppable, the weapon sounds are mostly sufficient, and set dressing crumbles and explodes all over the place.

Add to that well-placed checkpoints, nicely-balanced difficulty curves, a fairly wide range of skins and rather nice level design, and there's a fair amount of game here for a not terribly onerous price.

There are downsides - an anaemic options menu, a lack of mouse control in the menu and slightly sluggish controls in-game, and of course the occasionally infuriating automatic camera - but for this price it's a really fun game for a quick 40K topup in between dinner and bedtime.

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.

Picked this up super cheap when it was on sale. Was very hesitent because of all the bad reviews, boy was I surprised! Not nearly as terrible as everyone has made it out to be. If you love the Warhammer universe and are a fan of twin stick shooters then this will be right up your alley. What I enjoy most is its pick up and play feel. You don't have to invest a lot of time getting into the game. You can fire it up, do a couple survival rounds or a mission and stop. Get your quick ten to twenty mins of action shooting in and then go.

As for all the people complaining about the horrid camera angles, they are not that bad at all. Besides all the enemies pop up on the radar so even if the angle isn't optimal you still know where they are and where to shoot(or where to hide).

Anyways if you want more Warhammer or an easy to pick up and play twin stick shooter pick this one up next time its on sale.

What a shame this game is. Underneath all of the crap is a very fun game, so it is really a shame. A very short game, around 4 hours, with some of the worst checkpointing/cheap deaths I have ever seen. It really is sickening and is the main reason this game failed so badly, particularly how I keep dying on the last boss and have to redo a substantial amount every time. It is going to take all of my willpower to finish this awful game. I was at the part where the warboss teleports out and swarms you with little monsters little did I know after killing a bunch it tells me to fall back but I am on the other side of the boss so when the camera pans for me to run the other way, I am instantly and unavoidably swarmed and killed by a plethora of orcs that pour on top of me out of a portal just because I wasn't on the other side of the area when the timed event started. So because of that I get to redo a ton of work because the checkpointing is so unbelievably bad. It happens a lot and I see why this game got bad reviews: it is a mess that was not done right and has since not been fixed. Oh and the ranged orcs bullets never miss, meaning you are going to get constantly mowed down by their fire and forced to do some parts over and over again.

The sound is way too low. I had to put music on 2 then crank up my speakers to even hear sound effects. The melee class is worthless because why would I want to right click twenty thousand times per level when I can just pick a ranged character and hold down mouse 1 to fire. The graphics are terrible too. Very jaggedly edged and looks like a game from 2006.

It could have been way better if it had not been made by a bunch of complete idiots but as it is, it is still, besides its awful faults, a fun isometric shooter with blood, guts, explosions, and some serious orc ♥♥♥ kicking. Although because of its ultra short length, don't pay over $5 for it.

5/10, because it is only 4 hours, has serious technical faults, and only if you pay $5 or less like I did. Otherwise it is very hard to recommend this.

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.
