Space Marine reviews begin trickling in – everything here

Wednesday, 7th September 2011 08:20 GMT By Nathan Grayson

Videogames have proven themselves adept storytellers, effective learning tools, and profoundly able to support whatever the hell WarioWare is. Sometimes, though, you just want to slip out of your pretentious pants, throw on something comfy, and kill everything until even its ghost’s ghost is dead. Enter Space Marine. No cover, no notions of so-called “realism” – just good old-fashioned gory fun. Well, in theory, anyway. But how does it actually fare when tossed into the toothy maw of harsh scrutiny? Find out after the break.

As always, let us know if you come across any more, and we’ll toss ‘em up there with our mighty link-hurling arms, honed from years of hunching over keyboards and occasionally reaching for whatever vaguely edible item happens to be nearby.

    I found the demo to be a bit crappy, honestly. It came off as ‘Third person game 101′, about as generic a TPS could get.

    The reviews read a bit up and down. I’m looking forward to it and have it pre-loaded on Steam so reviews don’t matter to me much.

    Feedback from players generally seems to be good but they are probably fanboys like me. :)

    Does anyone else still not see this in the UK Steam Store? I know it’s in the US Store however :/

    Going from the demo, I found it to be very dull and generic.

    @3 and 5, There was some issues with UK retailers about having it released on Steam, or something like that.

    It’s why there is no UK release on Steam yet. I picked up my copy from D2D (which also comes with a copy of Darksiders) and activated it on Steam. It does use Steamworks.

    The EG review is plain Heresy.

    If you’ve read it please report to the nearest Comissar to receive the Imperial Mercy.

    The PC version runs poorly, not optimized as usual.

    PC version is superior to the console versions (at least the PS3 one) by many lenghts.

    I have over 100 FPS in game, so i think it is as good as it should be.

    #8 I have played the demo on both xbox 360 and pc, the pc version is superior. Runs smoothly, camera works better, and looks better.

    Sometimes IGN shows a serious side.

    Guess what code was played by those 4 sites.

    A few more below, basically a good 8/10 title but some knocking it down because it’s not a well known property to the masses.

    Gaming Hell 75
