  • Long loading times.
  • Inviting and joining a game is a right pain, You have to make friends then find them then invite and is just long winded.
  • Unbalanced mobs, Always too many enemies regardless of player count.
  • Loot drops are scarce.
  • Constant difficulty spikes.


So here we have a game, Dare I say it? That could be one of the best Warhammer 40K games. Yes its still early access but every update brings a slew of new mechanics and levels. I mean they have nailed the dark Gothic look and characters look awesome. Enemy types like the dreadnought are just terrifying. My main worry is the mob balancing. Fine have tons of Genestealers on screen as that makes sense but having 5 elites and a few groups of people is not cool. It makes the experience very infuriating. Obviously I cannot go on one for too long as it is early access, In fact so early access its not even in early access. But what can you expect come early access release? Well at the time of writing you will get a dozen or so missions all varying in difficulty and an ok loot system. You can defiantly get the devs vision and like I say it nails the atmosphere. Keep an eye out for this game it could be the next mega hit.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
