For none-tabletop players: 9 of 10 stars.
For all those of you, who love playing the mix of strategy games and RPG's, its an awesome game.
You can choose a race like Space Marines (gen-manipulated super soldiers in the heaviest armors you can imagine), orkz (big, green and tons of aggression), the imperial Army ( normal humans, throw-away-units, but like a mass army, they overrun every enemy) and many others.
While playing, your units gain experience and level up. So you can raise their stats and change the equipment of every hero in your squad.
The game is split up in more or less 15 missions, individualized for each of the races.
Otherwise you can play the ,,last stand", where you and 2 other players try to survive 20 waves of enemys.
Last aspect of the game is the multiplayer mode, where you can play solo or in team against other players.
For tabletop players: 7 of 10 stars.
Of course the game is still epic. But there are a few bad mistakes in the game, which let your smile disappear....
Much of the equipment isn't codexconform, there are characters and Chapters that doesn't exist, an exterminatus that isn't an exterminatus ((it's an overkill in game.....first thousands of lances, and then a magmabomb which is much bigger than usual)(and although it's an planet with a great flora and fauna, there are no virusbombs)).
Ok, this could be called pedantically, but if you know the codex and the rulebook, you will notice theese things wether you like or not...
In spite of everything i advise you to buy this game ;)
