When I think back to my trip to Gamescom in 2010 one of the games I remember most was one I did not expect to be so excited over. The demo I was shown back then caught me hook, line and sinker and I've been itching to get my hands on a playable demo of it ever since.

Re: Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine PC Demo Impressions

Played this last night myself and my GOD did it deliver some epic smiles.

First off the feeling of being overwhelmed is always at the back of your head, anyone who knows the 40k universe knows that orks attack in large numbers, so you're always against the odds in head count. Being swarmed by greenskins is a sight people need to experience.

The combat is so bloody fluid, you can go from ranged combat instantly into melee in the blink of an eye and the melee combat just has that extra touch to make it feel real, that your blows have a weight to them, oh and the execution moves, just so damn satisfying, can't help but have a GRIN (yeh see what i did there?) on my face while playing.

Definitely get the demo, play it and just giggle as you ground pound into a group of orks from above with your jet pack. SO GOOD.

Re: Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine PC Demo Impressions

One thing I hope they portray in the game as they do in the books, is the sheer power that the Bolters they use have. In the books they portray them as knocking enemies off their feet and punching bigger than fist sized holes through the unfortunate sod to get in the way.

Re: Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine PC Demo Impressions

In the game you can see the bolter rounds hit the target then for them to show a secondary explosion as bolter rounds are made to explode inside the enemy arent they?

get a headshot with a bolter and you'll see some tasty bloody explosions, they will tear through orks. Though against nobs, that's a different story, hard *******s they are.

Youve pretty much summed up what I thought of it! Besides the move mouse wheel as I played on pad *sits awaiting the angry mob* as I just assumed K+M would feel wrong.
Gonna go back through the demo with them and see how it feels.

Re: Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine PC Demo Impressions

I was dubious at it was a "3rd Person" shooter...

BUT....

They have put Mr Marine to the left just enough that it feels like a true FPS, and at the "Smash his ****ing face in with a Power Axe" moments you can still see the hordes of Greenskins that need "REDEMPTION IN THE NAME OF THE EMPEROR!!!"!!!

Seen a 50 cal in action Wedge?
That **** bounces around tanks, add .25mm and add it to internal organs :P
Tis pretty.
(To be fair, it does have to go through "power armour" for the most part, but still. A man wearing metal plates aint as hard as a tank)
