I use to have the box game in the mid-90s and loved it. I was very happy to find this game on steam. So far the game plays like the box game. I would love to see more DLC! If you enjoy dungeon crawls then this would be a good addition to your library and the deluxe package is $3.00 during the summer sale. Worth it IMO!

This is a nice laptop game. Sometimes I just don’t feel like sitting at the computer desk playing a game that demands a high end rig to play. Sometimes I just wanna veg on the couch and play a game on my laptop. This game fits that bill nicely. Is it the best game out there? No, but is great for putzing around in a nice little dungeon crawl and kill some things and get some loot. Is it worth $30 for the game and deluxe content? I say no. However, if you can get the deluxe package for $10 or under it is well worth it.

I got the deluxe edition for like 5 bucks. It's actually pretty fun and a good way to pass the time. If the deluxe edition goes for 10 bucks or under, I recommend buying it. I can't imagine the basic version of the game being any good since you can't take some of the coolest classes in Warhammer Fantasy with you.

A colorful and indepth RPG in the Warhammer fantasy setting - even makes mention of Nagash himself -the greatest of all Necromancers! Its Turn Based which so lets you think your strategies and tactics in your own timing. The map feature gives you an non-linear feel allowing you to choose your quests. The combat is fun and exciting. Character development improves it even more as you level up and gain new skills. It has an olde style flavor and the music is gentle and inspiring. The added quests, characters and items you can buy enhances the game greatly; though you can enjoy it regardless without those. Graphics are detailed and vibrant without heavy strain on your system requirments. I also feel this game has great potential and look forward to more expansions. I highly recommend this game and I hope it sounds and looks good to you and that you seriously think about getting it. If you want an RPG game that is easy to play and easy to learn then view this one and consider it. One other point: if you love dungeon crawls then its another reason to choose this game as its one of the best dungeon romps! Well done Games Workshop A+++

Game gets boring really fast; max level characters with rare items still miss most of the time and make little damage; nearly impossible dungeons; lame and repetitive weapons and quests; poor-quality texts. Actually played 50+ hours just to see how it would end, and still have no clue - but no longer care.

As a huge fan of the orginal board game, I absolutely love this game. It does a really good job of creating a fun and faithful dungeon crawl experience for on-the-go play on my tablet. Very easy to pick up and put down. I got it on sale, and I think the price is a little high, especially since you have to buy the extra characters if you want them.

Warhammer Quest (Deluxe version reviewed).

I found Warhammer Quest an enjoyable game, well I should say I still find it to be an enjoyable game as I am still playing through WQ, nearing the final quests. Admittedly I've always enjoyed the Warhammer universe, turned based games and fantasy so I'm getting a little something extra there. There's a good selection of playable characters and quests to be completed and while some of the quests feel a bit samey there's enough of a story line going on and variety that, for me, it didn't become too annoying (that said there *are* a lot of quests too!). There's plenty of loot and booty to be had and I'd recommend holding off on purchasing weapons in some of the many towns you will come across because levelling up your characters in the latter stages of the game can become pricey and I found that I had a backlog of characters needing to be trained. I discovered that a lot of the quest reward weapons and random drops had me kitted out pretty well anyway. The game quests are designed to played through in a short period of time, about a half-dozen to a dozen rooms in total. Any of the general quests in the wilderness will likely only take a half hour or so if you don't find yourself getting into trouble and the story-line quests will take a little longer. While there's no form of permadeath nor any major punishment when your adventures die it can be annoying when your whole party wipes-out in a dungeon because you get swamped by monsters because of random spawns during combat. The vampires tend to be just as powerful, if not more powerful, than you so you really need to get your strategy right. Don't give up though as when all looks lost you can steal victory from the jaws of defeat (and only by the skin of your teeth) and that when I enjoyed the game the most. The only major annoyance and criticism I have is that some of the game mechanics (e.g. those pesky vampires and random spawns) could have used a little more testing and tweaking as occasionally it's a little unfair in its imbalance. I was fighting a Vampire Lord and just when I had his accompanying retinue sorted and about end his undead Lordliness another vampire spawned, around the corner and well out of my reach, and proceeded to heal, disable and resurrect until I was completely surrounded and outnumbered four to one. Slowly but surely my brave adventurers met a grizzly end. Frustrating but, like I said, no major penalty incurred (but man it sucks at the final stage of the dungeon). Well, more critters to be stuck with my blade. If you enjoy Warhammer and enjoy turn base roll playing then I certainly recommend WQ and also a simple introduction to the genre.

The main problem in this game is that the mechanics that determine combat are masked behind an uncooperative interface, with only vague explainations to the effects of spells and statistics that should be readily visible.

I reckon the developers should have taken a page out of XCOM's book and provided easily to read estimates for hit-%, possible damage for both players and enemies.

A fine interpretation of the original boardgame that is marred by heavy-handed in-app monetisation and a free-to-play design philosophy.

After nearly 5 hours with Warhammer Quest, I'm left with an overwhelming feeling of frustration. While the game comes with 4 perfectly serviceable characters for the asking price, at least a further $15 is required to open up the full set of classes. This would be acceptable if the first 8 quest rewards I got weren't all for classes requiring further purchase. It's mobile roots show through a little too clearly and while the asking price might be reflective of the time you'll spend with it, a very grindy feel quickly sets in and boredom quickly follows.

Pre-Release Review

Video Review - http://youtu.be/mEll4CawU5g

Before we get into the mechanics of the game I want to express my annoyance at the pricing of the game. As is common these days with mobile ports the game is more expensive on Steam than it is on mobile devices. Warhammer Quest is $5 on mobile but $15 on steam, that is a crazy price jump for the same game. Not only this but they have carried the in game purchases over from the mobile version, which I personally think they should have included all content in the full price considering your charging an extra $10 just for the ability to play it on steam. But you can buy the game with all the optional content in the deluxe edition for $30 but seriously I don't need to be the one to tell you that this game is not worth $30 do I?

Oh and did I mention you can buy gold in the game for ridiculous prices, oh yes that's in there. Now I have yet to encounter a point where I could not progress in the game without purchasing gold however, the gold that drops organically seems low, not to mention the various reviews of the mobile version that claimed that purchasing gold at some point was required.

The pricing annoys me further when no real effort has been put in to optimize for the PC market. You control everything with the mouse which renders the keyboard useless which becomes particularly annoying when you want to scroll the map with WASD but can't and have to click and drag everywhere. The developers haven't even bothered with placing in higher resolution textures for any part of the game nor even upgraded the movie resolutions which makes the small CGI movies when entering a town look worse than awful.

The premise of the game is simple, take your group of adventurers through the dungeons of the Warhammer World in the search for wealth and glory. The standard edition of the game comes with four playable characters of a roster of eleven. The other characters are available to purchase, because of course they are.

This all being said the actual game mechanics are faithfully representative of the source material. Each dungeon you visit works from a grid system, by selecting your characters one by one you can see the available movement options. You will only be able to see the rooms you are either in or have been in, everything else will be shrouded in darkness until you step foot in it. This fog of war play means that you'll never know what enemies are waiting in the next room, it could be rats or it could be a giant blood hungry beast. While moving in the hallways room to room, you'll occasionally get attack by enemies that will spawn around you, which is fun towards the start but when your running low on health and out of potions, it becomes both frustrating and worrying.

Combat revolves around basic attacks, inventory items, spells and abilities. Attacking a target requires a simple click as does using items and spells once you've selected them from the bottom HUD menus. Everything has a hit chance or some kind of roll involved and example would be a healing spell for which a roll occurs to determine how much or how little the spell heals. One of the most famous combat mechanics from the original board game was 'deathblow' in which should a character kill an enemy with one hit then they could continue to carry that attack to any other enemies in range. In game this mechanic means that should your marauder be surrounded by enemies you essentially have a chance to kill them all from one attack, potentially. This mechanic has saved me many times from tight spaces.

While the combat mechanics in essence are fairly solid. The hit chance can cause you to have a run of bad luck and inconvenient times. It can make combat feel unfair, punishing and outright brutal when you need the hits to swing your way in an important fight. Once a character dies in battle you can use that character again once you complete the dungeon which on one hand is ok but in my opinion a permadeath state for characters would have been much for fun and meaningful. Mages and units that require things like mana or willpower for abilities will regenerate an amount at the start of each turn.

When your not in a dungeon, there's the world map and town screens. World map travel consists of travelling from town to town eventually visiting all three regions. To travel to a unvisited town you must first complete the dungeon on the way, after doing this you can move from that town to a previous town freely.

Once in a town you have a few options available to you. First if any of your warriors have gained enough experience to level up then you can go to the training ground to level them up which requires gold to do so, clearly a mechanic for draining your gold to get you to buy some more. Each town also has a market where you can buy equipment and potions as well as sell your unwanted items. Usually markets will have a few unique items that are specific to that town or relate to that towns quest in name only. The adventurers guild is where you can see all the characters that are available to use included ones that are DLC. In the towns temple you can pay gold to have one of your warriors pray for a chance to receive a unique buff that can be activated only once during the next dungeon.

Random events involving your warriors will also take place in towns that can end up having buffs and debuffs for the next dungeon. My witch hunter decided to get very drunk and ended up having a debuff for the entirety of the next dungeon. Finally Towns each have their own unique quests that have a short story attached to it. These quests are optional and incur some difficult dungeons but there's also the chance for some great loot too. These quests are presented in text form and are relatively well written with some interesting characters and humour stuffed in.

An big element that I feel is missing from the game is multiplayer. Having multiplayer in the game would have done wonders for re-playability. Its the perfect genre for multiplayer, I mean come on the source material is a board game for goodness sake. Multiplayer should have been a given for Warhammer Quest and yet sadly we have none.

The game overall is pretty solid yet I personally cannot recommend it. There is no reason why you would buy a mobile game from 2013 at an inflated price just to have it on steam. The fact that the game is riddled with micro-transactions plus no real effort has been made in both controls and aesthetics for the transition to PC leaves me thinking that it was an easy cash grab. Even if your a big Warhammer fan or a fan of turn based games and your dead set on playing this, there is no reason not to play it on your mobile device especially considering the price difference.

What can i say - in game purchases of additional characters in a PC game, priced and marketed as a full game, through steam. I guess the days of PC gaming is well and truly over - shame on you WHQ and shame on you Steam for allowing this BS.
When i download a "free-to-play" game, i expect to get scammed with low graphics and ingame purchases. When i buy a game via Steam, I expect to be rid of that.

The fact that Vampires and Zombies, Necromancers and Skeletons, and necromantic tileset were 3 separate DLCs say everyting you need to know about this game.

On AppStore, this game is rate almost 5/5. The base, $5 version had only two types of enemies: orcs and critters. $5 gave you 6-8 hours of dungeons bashing orcs or giants rats and spiders (sometimes both), loot that your characters couldn't use and paywalls once you reached new regions.
For PC release, the price was trippled, but they unlocked the two regions (one of which has Savage orcs as enemies, because those are so different), as well as Skelingtons and Skelington dungeon tiles. Surprise, it's still a boring slog with through mostly chaff filled dungeons, coupled with low definition 2D dungeon tiles and the best Unity graphics that tablets can muster - at PC resolution! You can also enjoy such team members as elf that frequently gets outshot by goblins and a wizard with ♥♥♥♥♥♥ attack spells and healing spells than insult you more often than do any healing.

And let's not forget the in game cash purchases.

Truly the best GW licensed game to kick off the year.

This game is designed and made for an ipad. Its graphics and controls are for an ipad. You use your mouse like a finger to a touchpad and have no way to do anything using your keyboard. I would like to move the camera with wsad or arrow keys. It is highly annoying that there is no keyboard controls.

I like to zoom out and play it that way but every turn the enemy resets the camera to super zoomed in on it. This is extremely annoying. Also you should have an option to fast forward through enemy animation always but need to click it every turn.

There is no multiplayer but warhammer quest is a game you want to play with friends.

There are microtransactions. What?!

There is no replay value. The game has a crafted story line. What? Is this Warhammer Quest?

You have to do an extra click every time you want to end turn because they hide it just incase your finger hits it...wait were on a computer.
