I'm not a fan of Warhammer but it's a good game nevertheless. I liked the
look and feel of the game, which is an important aspect. The 3D maps, mostly war
torn urban, are great and you can really enjoy the cinematic element as you
bring the camera down to ground level and zoom in to the action. I don't really
like the stylised look of the characters but I dug the vehicles and buildings
and everything else.
A slight complaint is that all the missions are the same ie. build a base,
gather resources, build up your forces, smash the enemy. There's not really
anything more to it than that, but that's what you want really, isn't it.
There's an adequate story that is played out in cutscenes before and after each
mission and that serves to keep you interested. Basically a company of Blood
Ravens come to a planet to rid it of orcs and ends up battling Eldar and Chaos
Marines who have some sinister plan. You only get to play the Blood Ravens
Voice acting and dialog is good.
A slight downer for me is the “hero” of the game, the Force Commander.
He's not so much a hero as a fanatical maniac who slaughtered his own family,
along with the entire population of his home planet for being heretics. He
despises and vows to destroy heresy wherever he finds it. Heretics, though are
simply those who do not worship his emperor god. Also, you don't really know who
you're playing, exactly. You're not playing the Force Commander because during
missions he talks to you and offers advice. It's just a little thing but I dug
Red Alert where you played a character, a commander, albeit an
All in all, not great, but very good.
