  1. A very good retrospective here Oliver. I just wanted to add a note about Tactics, the servers across all platforms were taken down within 6 months of the launch of the game with no word as to why, from what I could see, which annoyed me and a friend, who both bought it for the intention of playing against each other, deeply disappointing.

  2. I like Space Hulk Tactics but as many others the difficulty puts me of in the long run.

  3. Wasn't Space Hulk 1993 came out on PC98?

  4. Would love to have your thoughts on Bloodbowl

  5. This is the best review out – after watching, I got ahold of Ascension. Its definitely a lot of fun but needs more story

  6. The single best 40k game hands down is the 3rd person game W40k: Space Marine! I'd happily live in a universe where bargain basement developers were never used to pump out low quality, mass produced smartphone trash, in favor of a sequel to 40kSM!

  7. I completely agree with Vengeance of the Blood Angels being way too hard. I had it on PC as a kid and could never get past the first mission either. The graphics were very cool at the time though, and the sound design was brilliant.

  8. Space Hulk II Vengeance of the Blood Angels will always be one of my favorite games of all time on the PS1. Careful planning, and trying my best to not lose a single squadmate. I ended finishing the campaign with zero deaths. Up until now, I was not able to find a Space Hulk game that brings that visceral feel of tight hallways crammed with unimaginable horror in every corner. Taking different perspectives of squadmates and ordering them to one point and pray they reach there in one piece. The recent Space Hulk and Space Hulk Tactics were okay but didn't satisfy my thirst for worthy successor for that game. The gimmick FPS cams kinda ticked me off. Deathwing, man there's so much potential but falls short.

  9. I was actually a big fan of the Space Hulk: Ascension game. It was my introduction to the series (but I have played other 40k games before) and I loved the hardcore atmosphere. And now you can't even purchase it anymore, what a shame!

  10. Don’t say “programmers” say “developers”

  11. Here's a bit of lessor known trivia. There was another Space Hulk style game called Dark Crusade. This was long before the RTS. The game was scrapped after only a few levels were made, some PC gamer magazines had a full page ad for it. Many of the FMV sequences were reused for Warhammer Final Liberation.

    It's hard to tell much from the screenshots. But I believe you were to play in a regular squad of Space Marines fighting Ork and Chaos forces.

  12. You forgot Space Crusade and Alien Assault (which is a very very good Space Hulk clone). Played them all. Space Hulk: Vengeance of the Blood Angels is by far the best one of the GW releases, superior to all before and after, wish they remade it properly. Alien Assault is 2nd place in my opinion better than any GW PC board game put out, you can also mod it to be Space Hulk.

  13. Will you review alien vs predator in the future

  14. Great review Oliver, thank you.
