Fun game here, simple mechanics, tons of units, and a good campaign.

Armageddon isn't exactly groundbreaking by any stretch of the imagination, but the panzer corps style of game meshes very well with Warhammer 40k. This universe is all about mass combat, and this game does that. It also has every Imperial Guard tank variation you can think of, I believe there is something close to 400 tanks to choose from, it's crazy, although more often than not, a lot of these variants are pointless when a few do certain jobs far better than any other.

The Gameplay is simplistic, it's really all about adding your firepower together, not too much else to it. The game makes up for it in the depth it has with the campaign and avalanche of units. Every mission or scenario you get a bunch of points to spend on some units to add to your army, and to replace losses with, spending these well is a pretty big deal. A lot of choices are a big deal, some of these missions are quite difficult until you get your late-campaign super heavies and titans. And once you get those, well, the game is flawed in that you will only be using those, which is kind of dumb when your army is 30 Reaver titans with 2 squads of conscripts.

Multiplayer, I've found, is non-existent thanks to the play by e-mail system. I wish they would've done something better, but it's not too big of a fault with Armageddon.

All in all, considering the absolute trash we have been given since GW threw the license to anything that moved, Armageddon is one of the few good or decent games to come out of it, pick it up in a sale though, it isn't worth the full price.

By my fury, they shall know the Emperors name!

Good game, very simple and easy to learn, and with pretty solid gameplay.
The voice work is decent some characters are better acted than others, and it's fun to interact with big characters such as Yarrick and Dante.

The game also takes place in a pretty well documented and well known part of Warhammer 40k lore. The story is quite solid as well. All in all, it's a great game to pick up if you're a fan of the setting, but don't expect anything overly flashy.
That being said, you don't need to know the lore to appreciate the gameplay, and you don't need to be a 40k lore buff in order to understand the story of the game.

So if you're a 40k fan I really recommend that you check this one out. If you're just looking for a fun turn based strategy game, then that works too I guess.

Lot of nice things... but terrible IA.
Most opponent units does not move at all, even if they are attacked beyond they range.
This leads to boring mission and break totally immersion (orks that do not move or attack....)

I was on the fence with this game for a long time. The main thing holding me back was the price. Holy pricey for a game with low production value batman! I read many reviews here and other places, browsed the Slitherine forums for ahwile, and decided to bite and fork over 50 hard earned dollars. Of course 4 days later it goes on sale 50% off! Needless to say, "steam" is coming out of my ears right now...but I digress.

The game is fantastic. Not quite as deep as "Panzer Corps", but deep enough to make you think about what you're doing. Do I pick up another support unit for my core force or another armor division? Do I deploy in one giant wedge formation or split my force into two battlegroups? Do I upgrade my artillery units to Deathstrike missiles for maximum effect against armor or do I keep my Earthshakers for better versatility? Do I use a turn to rest and refit my elite units or do I press on? Every mission had me asking myself these questions...the first time I played them of course.

The game has ZERO replay value; once you know how the scenarios will unfold almost all these questions will be answered for you. For this reason alone it's very hard for me to recommend the game at full price. If you're a big fan of 40k and wargames I can say this is a winner, but it's way, way, WAY overpriced. Wait for a sale, or get more value for your dollar and pick up another wargame.

I will close by saying that after 100+ hours of play I can say that most (but certainly not all) of the negative reviews I have read are from people who thought this was 40k tabletop on PC and are disappointed to find out that it's not, or are from people who are not wargamers and somehow ended up buying this. It's a solid wargame with no replay value and a way too hefty pricetag. If $50 is chump-change to you, then I recommend this to any wargamer.

One thing i forgot to mention...the "manual" is garbage. How can you not explain, or for that matter even mention "Zones of Control". This is an absolutely critical mechanic to understand if you want to succceed and enjoy a game like this on all but the easiest difficulty. If you're not well versed in wargames and are thinking of picking this up I strongly suggest you look up ZOC on forums or whatever. You will get alot more out of the game, trust me.

I bought this about a week before this review ,with just under 70 hours into the game I bought it on sale with DLC's for 25.00 US. I play a lot of Matrix games or the style they tend to sell .I did because I had a laptop of medium power. Now I have a upper mid level gaming desk top. I had my eye on this game for a long time been playing the older RTS Warhammer you can get for a under 5 bucks on sale . Campare this to them .I like this much better the other game just spam your tanks . Here the game makes you think about what you are doing. I had lot of problems when starting on what to use to fight with . So I went read some of the guides here and. made the game so much better. I am just starting the second chapter .this brings in a whole new batch of weapons /tanks to figure out to use .
It plays like Panzer Corps (I have) except I knew the power of the weapons in that game ahead . So the negitive reviews here most likly are about the learning curve ,not being instant high like a blast of crack cocaine since they have only a few hours into the game and crying.
Read the mission objectives I replayed on mission 9 times could not figure out why I kept losing . It was not the gold hex I needed to capture but destroy the gun next to it .Stupid me ! not the game .
If a game that is not a shot of whiskey hitting you at once get it , Buy it on sale with the DLC"s for 25.00 you cannot got wrong. I will buy the Toatl war one some time next year when ot drops to under 20.00 since it is what those games are worth to me a mass market Wham bam thank you mam game .
this is not that Oh one more thing if you read a negitive review check the hours of play how many games they have ,how many reviews and % negitive.
I recomend this game if On sale and you are patient gamming person does not want a instant kill

It's ok. I like the graphics, I LOVE all the dif units you can use. The story is pretty bland/crap. For the price I was expecting it ALL to be voice acted but no...just no. Good WH games are hard to find and this is not a bad one. For the price only get it if you are a WH 40k fan.

I haven't played much yet. I'm probably go to play it through but only because I spent $25 to get it. And if I knew then what I know, I wouldn't have.

I never played Panzer Corps or Panzer General which people keep comparing it to, but the game is virtually identical to Elven Legacy which I did play.

It's virtually identical with the following differences: it doesn't seem to have the time pressure (in games turns, not realtime) to beat the missions that Elven Legacy had (great, the time pressure in Elven Legacy was oppressive, made it feel like a puzzle game); Armageddon's mechanics seem more complex which makes it difficult to predict the outcome of actions; Armageddon's mechanics are also more random which makes it impossible to predict the outcome of actions; units take longer to die which gets irritating, you have to pummel and pummel and pummel the enemy before they're gone; several factors make it harder to keep your units alive which sucks hard; Armageddon has a bewildering variety of units which you might think is a good thing but isn't, it's confusing, and you never know if you're using the *right* units; and, most dispiriting, it doesn't have anything like the rewards that Elven Legacy did.

In Armageddon your units go up levels just like they did in Elven Legacy, but you only get the stat increase. You don't get to choose a special ability for them which makes it much less interesting and doesn't allow you to customize your units the way you could in Elven Legacy. Armageddon also doesn't have magic items which were another level of customization for your units and meant that you could take actions other than just attack, attack, attack.

Armageddon isn't a bad game, but it's confusing with a very steep learning curve and doesn't make you want to keep playing. If I could go back in time and tell myself not to buy it, I would.

When I bought this game I ignored the negative reviews that mentioned poor AI. I erred in doing so. This game, at the end of the day, was not simply not fun for me.

I love the 40k universe (I play the tabletop game), and enjoy turn-based strategy games, so I figured this would be a blast. I also like games with campaign play, units gaining experience, etc.

Maybe the game feels low budget, maybe the AI isn't good, and/or maybe the secret sauce just isn't here and the game is no fun for me. I'm not sure, so I requested a refund.

:-/

P.S. I absolutely loved "Final Liberation" as a kid. If you want a compelling turn-based strategy game set in the 40k universe, that's your game. You will not be disappointed by it, but you will be disappointed that they never made a sequel.

Not a very good game, had great potential but all missions have to be completed in a set turn limit which leaves the option for trying different ideas/tactics very limited, most missions are simple rush from point A to B and you cannot simply stop for 1 turn or you wont make the turn limit.

This leaves very little to almost no replayabilty value in this already overpriced game, also devs are overly agressive in defence of this game and ban many people from the game hub for giving there opinions.

my advice is dont buy this cash grab, it looks like a potentially good stratergy game but it simply isnt look elsewhere.

A bit of context:

Armageddon is a well documented W40k storyline that has been blessed with great writers and spanking plots over several decades of Games Workshop development, featuring standout characters, painfully vivid depravity, the perfidy of man in the far future and the devious relentlessness of its eternal Xenos enemies.

This game is not about animation, hand-to-hand combat or a single hero unit conquering all before it in a fantasy universe.
It's about retaining control of a world, a desolately bleak Hive world, in the 40th Millenium with wretched humanity clinging on to a post apocalypictal planet; destroyed by the greed of man, turned into a nightmare world of endless pollution, acid lakes and ash landscapes where nothing grows but mutant lifeforms.
Barely palatable goo is grown from vats fed by the filth of humanity, and fed back to its citizens huddled in Hive Cities that reach into the Stratosphere, built on the bones of the weak and the past. Factories churn out endless warmachines, fearsome weaponry and galaxy conquering spaceships, while billions of recruits are press ganged into the Imperial army. And all for praise of the Emperor on his death Throne who cares not for his Worship.
Yet, you survive.

The Orks come to Armageddon. And come they do in their relentless Waaaaargghhh! , generation after generation.
The WarBoss is always mighty, his intellect canny, his instincts brutal but insightful. He will outthink you. His puny gretchin will overwhelm your finely trained, brutalised imperial forces if you allow them too close. His Ork Boys will cleave your powerful superhuman Space Marines from head to toe, ripping the geneseed from their bodies with massive fangs. His mighty clanking warmachines will splitter and splutter seeming an inch from disaster, and then somehow pound your Titans and Hive Cities within an inch of their miserable existence.
Then, the brutality and carnage truly begins!

Can you, mere human, stand before the might of the Orks in the 40k universe?
You will soon find out!

About the gameplay:

A great adaptation of W40k, done from the perspective of the tabletop game and from a more strategic viewpoint. Maybe Warhammer 40k Epic is the more apt comparison, rather than Dawn of War or the tactical fightfest of today's W40k.
Akin to Panzer General and one must appreciate in a similar mindset.
The breadth of units available is very impressive, with every conceivable variant available for your selection.
Deployment and careful marshalling of resources is key as well as playing to each unit's strength while being mindful of the end strategic objective.
The land is bleak and harsh. The enemy relentless and overwhelming. You must always be a step ahead or be utterly destroyed. There are plots within plots from which you must choose the storyline progression as each campaign scenario develops onward to another.

The Imperium of man must not fight these Xenos beasts on their own terms but carefully, meticulously plan and plot to ultimate victory.
Oh, it will be bloody. There will be many losses.
May the Emperor protect you, Lord General!

Basically this is Panzer Corps in the Warhammer 40k universe.

I am a huge fan of both, so this was a no brainer for me to purchase.

But all in all this is precisely what I would expect a Panzer Corps, Warhammer 40k game to be.

I am loving it. I expect to rank up many hours playing this.

Anyone remember Fantasy General? A beautiful fantasy version of the Panzer General genre from SSI back in the days, when this genre was actually driving.

Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon actually reminded me of this game. It transports the engine of the recent Panzer Corps into the Warhammer 40.000 universe. It even offers a nice, cheesy story to put the campaign into, where you lead the planetery defenders into their fight against the WAAAGH hordes attacking their planet.

The gameplay is typical for the genre, with the interesting thing, that many units offer different weapon choices to use in a fight. Also much importance is on the range of these weapons, as units can die fast. This hurts especially with experienced ones, which you can include in your permanent corps through the campaigns.

The game is still improved by it´s creators, who just released a gratis add-on dlc Untold battles too. So if you like turn based strategy with a sci-fi touch, take a look at this game :)
