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.

This game got a lot of bad reviews, but the hilarious thing about that is that they are all from diehard warhammer fans crying about how it isn't as in-depth as the board game or the rts games on pc, and not even close to the third person Space Marine game. However, I have a very low tolerance for generic, clunky, bland games with awful engines (like DayZ) and I will not play something unless it has a pretty decent engine. The truth is that although it has god awful graphics and effects seemingly from 2006, it is still quite a competent isometric shooter, far better than others that I have played. I think someone in the user reviews mentioned that the Alien Breed games are far better isometric action games, when in reality those are dog crap garbage and this is actually some good mindless fun. You can see my review of the alien breed games to see why those suck nuts.

The graphics suck ♥♥♥. They look like they are from 2006. The sounds and music are fine and the gameplay is fine. It does not feel like a AAA game but does not feel like a indie game, but still somewhat generic. Even so, it is still a steady dose of fun solid action. You just mow down everything you see and can get powerups and unlock perks and new guns. Why they put a melee class in the game is really dumb because since his melee is strong and his ranged dmg isn't, you will be right clicking hundreds of times per level versus just holding down left mouse button to fire using a ranged character. If I joined a online game and the last guy to pick was the melee guy I wouldn't play even if someone paid me. You can fall off platforms which sucks because I can be backpedaling with my eyes on the enemies and fall off it, but not often. The checkpointing system is unforgiving but I have seen much worse in other games. Unskippable cutscenes sucks but thankfully they aren't long.

Guts, blood, decapitations, massive gunfire, explosions, punching orcs in their ♥♥♥♥ing mouths... LETS DO THIS!!!

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!

Added May 23 of 2014 (하단에 한국어로도 적어뒀습니다.)

I have to modify my recomand. Kill Team still has problems but serious problems seem fixed after update.
(Likes cam angle bug, bad mouse sensitive, etc.)
I'm glad watch Nomad Games has intention to modify and I hope they fix co-op problem too.
Update makes me feeling better, meanwhile, it means Nomad Games sold beta version of product to full price when I think about it. It's another nasty things.
So I still recomand you wait buying and watch the development of 40k: Kill Team.

------------------------------------------

When I saw Kill Team on steam, I'm really happy. I'm big fan of Warhammer 40k, I have 5000pts(Maybe 6k) Imperial Guard army, playing warhammer fantasy too, have lot of Warhammer game(most of them... you know, ♥♥♥♥y game), Novels... Trailer seems 'not bad 40k game', I was really happy, and buy 3 Kill Team for gift. Hah, damn you Archrite. You poolish ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

As both Warhammer fan and PC gamer, I can tell you it's not bad game for Xbox but PC... you know.
40k : Kill Team is kinds of big ♥♥♥♥ like Storm of Vengence. Well... strictly say... better than SoV....
Local Co-op? Bull ♥♥♥♥! It doesn't support co-op! It dosen't work! It doesn't! To start Co-op, you need press start button of 2p but in game you can only control 1p. Game option doesn't suport 2p key! Ofcourse, no invite friend option too! You can't invite your friend, both online and offline.

Bad optimization is another problem. In game, we control shooting angle by mouse, but can't modify mouse sensitive. Doesn't support wide screen, screen easily change wide to full to wide to full to wide by vaccine or whatever, and steam option cover game screen when press splint button. Game hint doesn't change. For example, It told me 'press LR to use Special Move'. What??? What is LR?? What am I supposed to do??? Bad cam angle is problem too.

It's not game for PC gamer, I recommand Do Not Buy, if if if yoooou really want play, buy Xbox version.


<Korean Version>

로컬 코옵이라는건 작동하지도 않고, 마우스 감도 병신같지, 옵션 그지같고, 최적화 전혀 안했고, 시프트 키 누를때마다 스팀창 뜨지, 뭐 하려고만하면 창모드 전환되지, 카메라 앵글도 존나 등신 같고 버그도 개같고 난이도 변경 안되지, 게임 디자인도 불평하고 싶은게 많음. 그렇다고 게임이 재밌는것도 아니고... 정하고 싶으면 엑박 버전으로 사요. 그건 코옵 되니까.

병신게임. 아오♥♥♥♥♥♥. 내 것도 사고 스팀친구 두 명한테 선물했는데 진짜 내가 또 낚여서 이 지랄을 하다니.

<5월 24일 추가>

오늘 보니 패치가 되었는지, 많은 문제가 해결되었습니다.
노마드 게임즈가 이런 문제를 해결하려는 점은 매우 기쁘게 생각하지만,
한편으로는 베타버전 게임을 일반가에 팔았다는 생각에 불쾌감도 드네요.

아마 패치를 통해 지속적으로 문제를 해결하고, 코옵도 추가해 넣을 것으로 보입니다.
그래도 혹시 모르니 킬팀을 살 생각이 있으신 분은 문제가 해결될때까지 지켜보라고 말씀드리고 싶네요.

First off: Don't expect a game as good as any of the DoW games. Still, this game is really funny.
Pros:
-You can choose between 4 different classes (Techmarine, Devastator, Assault Marine and Librarian), each with different skills and weapons.
-Every character plays different but none is overpowered
-The graphics are ok
-The sound is good
-You can unlock weapons and perks for every class (e.g. more health/melee damage/ranged damage/etc.)
-You fight Orcs and Tyranids and each level has a boss that has different abilities
-Almost no bugs (had an enemy stuck behind a wall one time, but nothing a grenade can't handle)
-Random slow-motion killcam
-It takes some time to unlock everything and find every collectable

Cons:
-Rather short story (took me around 3 hours to finish it), only 5 levels (with one being almost completely the final boss fight)
-As it's a console port you can't use your mouse in the menus and you can only change a very few things in the settings
-Some graphic glitches (ragdolls spazzing out, etc.)
-Only local coop

Other:
-The 5 missions are extremely linear
-You often go back to areas where you have already been
-The A.I. of your enemies is not that smart
-You can easily dodge enemy bullets (e.g. by running around in circles.)

Overall, i'm giving this a 7/10 as i really miss online coop and there are some minor issues. And you should be able to use your mouse in the menu. But if you got 10€ left this game is a good choice.

A long time coming port from the console release.

Simple to grasp, a standard arcade style shooter but without detracting from the delicious sound of a bolter spreading the love of the Emperor.

Graphics are quite reasonable for a £6.99 arcade shooter, but since this is a console port they have neglected to incorporate a reasonable graphical settings menu, coined with a complete lack of a mouse sensitive option. You are being forced down the narrow road of using a controller. Narrator is very dull though, almost Tech Priest levels of monotone, and yet a master of quotes ("Drown the generator in its own filth", "Here comes the green tide"). However, the entire joy from this is from the rampant destruction and death, and it delivers well. Slow motion kill cams are present for random final kills, yet it does seem to slow down the FPS rather than anything else: this could be limited to my experience.

Customisation of your marine is available, choice of four marines but only one weapon (melee or ranged) can be changed on each, and simply just use the most recently unlocked weapon because guaranteed it will be an improvement. You can also choose your chapter of Marines, however that's fairly limited to some of the more popular chapters (sadly including the Ultra Smurfs).

Survival and local co-op for those with battle brothers.

tl;dr: £6.99 to purge xenos filth in his holy name.

Feel like some 40K blood-letting but don't have the time/ inclination for DOW titles? WH40K: Kill Team hits the spot! This game is hilarious. Pure arcade WH40K fun. It's not trying to be DOW1 or 2; there's nothing strategic about this title. But by crikey, there's PLENTY of firepower, and enough Astartes goodness in the shape of Devastator Marine, Assault Marine, Techmarine, or Librarian to provide adequate variety and replay value. Lots of power-ups and unlocks for the hordes of greenskins and tyranids assailing you. Visually beautiful environment and modelling, good sound effects, and includes choice of Imperial Fists, White Scars, Blood Angels, Ultramarines, Salamanders or Blood Ravens Chapters to spread the Emperor's 'benevolence'. Would love to see multiplayer in a future patch. Co-op is a dud - you have been warned. Otherwise, for only $10, well worth the purchase.

Uhh it's a 40K game where you kill stuff. I think it's amusing enough. Too bad there's no online coop, this game screams for it. Also the ranged characters are quite a lot more viable than the melee ones. The shooting is funny and ♥♥♥♥ explodes a lot. Wouldn't mind to see this polished and expanded.

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.

A simple game, it does only one thing and it does it very very well. This is a Space Marine arcade game. A very FUN Space Marine arcade game. There are four classes to play as, co-op play for two players, a variety of weapons, and useful perks for your marine. The voice acting is excellent- the space marine commander who gives you orders is perfect, and serves to immerse you in the universe thoroughly. It truly feels (in spite of it's arcade style) like the grim darkness of the far future- I will be playing this game a lot in the future. For all 40k fans dissappointed in Games Workshop in recent years: this is a genuine piece of the wonderful and terrible galaxy we've all come to know and love. A single perfectly crafted Space Marine mission. You'll be glad you played it.

It seems all the reviews I've read for this game are all bad, but I actually quite enjoyed the game. It's not a bad port, but neither is it a good one. The best you can do with options is change your resolution (Contrary to popular belief, you /can/ use widescreen resolutions), enable V-sync and windows to fullscreen. Some people complained about the absence of mouse sensitivity options, but for me it was just right.

The game itself is essentially what I would say is Alien Swarm with Space Marines. You have two melee oriented classes, which are the Librarian and the Vanguard Veteran Marine. The VV Marine is more focused on killing essentially everything in sight with melee, whereas the Librarian is a good support class with an area of effect explosion special ability, which is good for taking large groups of enemies at once.

You also have two ranged oriented classes, which are the Techmarine and the Sternguard Veteran Marine. The Techmarine is good at holding positions due to his Tarantuala Turret deployable ability. (You'll have to hold a fair amount of places in the game, and the Tarantula Turret helps a lot with this.) The SV Marine is a ranged version of the VV Marine, with the focus fire ability which increases damage and fire rate to great effect when dealing with continued hordes of enemies.

The game also features power-ups, giving the game a more arcade-style feel to it. There are several ranged based power-ups, some of which increase the amount of bullets fired (Shooting two at once, etc.), or how fast the weapon is firing. There is also an invincibility power-up, which gives about 20 or so seconds if invulnerability to all attack. The health power-up automatically heals a portion of your health then begins auto-regenerating until the timer on the power-up runs out. There's only one melee oriented power-up, the Righteous Fury, which increases damage, and increases speed as well.

The storyline is rather basic, you crash into the Ork Kroozer, intent on destroying it before it reaches the Imperial Forge World it was headed for, by destroying generators and finding power cells. The narrarator is fairly monotone, but he has more expression in his voice than people who actually talk monotone. It's pretty short, about 3-4 hours when played casually, I would bet around 1 or 2 for a speed run.

I bought this on release day, having wanted the game since I first heard about it, but not having an Xbox 360 to play it on, and I wasn't disappointed. The co-op is a little bot wonky, considering the second player doesn't have a targeting reticule, but for the most part, I highly enjoyed the game, and would give it an 8/10.

Kill Team is an isometric shooter set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, where Humanity's last hope rests upon the shoulders of genetically engineered super soldiers defending against xenos and heretics such as Orks, Tyranids, Chaos, and quite a lot more, too. Even if you are not familiar with the universe, you may have some fun with this game. However, if you're big into the lore/tabletop game, you should definitely consider a purchase.

In Kill Team, there are four classes, two melee, two ranged. Although they all practically play the same, it is interesting to experiment with different classes for each mission. Power-ups dot the landscape of each level, which enhance your character for short bursts of time.
The campaign is as you'd expect, run around and blow stuff up real good. Don't buy the game for the story, though. If you're expecting Dickens, you're in for a nasty surprise.
There is also a survival mode, where a relentless wave of enemies charge at you, and you ( and preferably a friend) must push them back. It's mindless fun, but an excellent distraction as you do whatever is in your power to top the leaderboard on your chosen map.
And finally the co-op. It may only be local, but it is great fun when you've got a friend to kill some time with. Just remember you need at least one controller for co-operative play.

Overall, Kill Team is arcade fun only made better by a friend. If you're into Warhammer 40,000 it is definitely worth it.
