    If Kratos and Marcus Fenix have a kid it would be this game.

    Rated on July 14, 2012 by SopranosFan

    This is a solid game with a few flaws that in my opinion hold it back from greatness. I will start with the weaknesses. First the story and dialogue is pretty bad, some of the things said are almost...

    Its Warhammer universe, cripled by Hollywood storytelling.

    They call it space because there's a lot of it.

    Rated on September 11, 2012 by Shawn_Watson

    Only the dedicated need apply

    Rated on April 15, 2013 by squidshoggoth

    This isn't a AAA kind of game, but don't let that stop you, in this game you will find an enjoyable if a bit short romp through a military arms producing planet full of nasties. Right out of the s...

    A half-assed effort

    Rated on September 08, 2011 by Abberon

    It's easy to write a review of this game, because there's really not much to it. Recipe is: -2-button hack and slash (almost literally) -Linear Dungeon Crawl -Half-assed shooter Combine a...

    Gears should fear

    Rated on September 09, 2011 by kenn0bi

    Play the demo and you'll understand why you need this title. Who wants another zombie title. This is true the franchise and has more of a story than Gears. This is how fighting should be, no cover ju...
