    Overall, I'm pleasantly surprised by Space Hulk: Deathwing. From a gameplay perspective, what it does it does in better form than Warhammer 40k: Fire Warrior by leaps and bounds. Space Hulk: Deathwing is another great step into bringing the entirety of the Warhammer franchise into a more mainstream popularity in videogames, and the game does it with a gory sense of style.

    Space Hulk: Deathwing’s atmosphere is riveting. The Space Hulk lore is being animated before the gamer’s eyes and while the shooting and tactical aspects of this team-based first person shooter are solid, the single player campaign can easily bore the player. The co-op in Codex Astartes mode is the best experience, gameplay-wise, that the game can offer.

    Space Hulk: Deathwing is a pure merch product. The fans of Game Workshop's IP will like it for the universe, but the more mainstream gamer will just find a poorly made FPS.

    Space Hulk: Deathwing boasts the best, most stylistically accurate Warhammer 40,000 visuals yet created, bar none. It’s precisely how the grim darkness of the far future should look and feel. However, the incredible eye-candy of this new FPS is not enough to disguise its lackluster story, indistinct gameplay, and stability issues.

    Space Hulk: Deathwing is a game full of potential, wasted on terrible creative decisions that pitch the game's strengths directly against one another.

    Great first impression – the visuals! the audio! the atmosphere! – turned out to be horribly wrong. Deathwing is infested with bugs, the AI is blasphemously poor and close combat system needs major improvements. [02/2017, p.38]

    While it captures the look and feel of a bleak sci-fi world, numerous quirks and bugs make Space Hulk: Deathwing a guilty pleasure at best. Playing cooperatively with a couple of buddies helps smooth over some of these problems, but regardless, combat remains incessantly tedious.

I was super nervous about this game after hearing all the whining about the Beta. This game is awesome and as a 40k fan I can really feel all the love and care that went into the title. Don't listen to the haters, the extra week of development clearly helped A LOT. I can offer up an unqualified recommendation for it. If you like 40k, this game is pure gold.

    Side note is that the game ran perfectly at high frame rates at the highest settings. Really not sure what people are complaining about.

    This game for fans of universe Warhammer 40k. For average users this as normal game like left4dead or vermeptide, with mechanics of alien swarm but in fist person view, don't know what people wait from coop corridor shooter.
    Great setting, good Graphics and sound. Gameplay simple but not so bad if you know what should expect of such games. My score 6 but as fan and because all will be mad of game i'll set 10

Thei5 quad 2.8, gtx 980, win10, 16gb ram - 60 to 20 fps, but drops are not bad, apart from that a very well realised Space Hulk adaptation. The more I play the more it grows on me. I only play single player (not a huge MP guys) and what is there is easily worth the price of admission. It's not for everyone, and I read it can be buggy (haven't found many myself), but if it works for you and you like the vibe, it's amazing, a wet dream for SH fans with the right hardware. Expand

While it does look amazing, both graphics-wise and when ti comes to design, it is spot on. However, the gameplay is severly lacking. It offers a generic Space Marine Terminator arsenal, with melee combat and psychic powers which both feel very disconnected and without weight. There is no customization, practically no leveling system, imbalanced weapons and bland characters with a bland story. The only thing this game is good for is for those combat encounters which really make you feel like a Space Marine mowing down hordes of xenos, but apart from that, unfortunately, not much else.

Other than the somewhat decent graphics, this is totally not a good translation for those who are fans of the Warhammer 40k universe. The changes made for "gameplay" totally don't make sense coming from the world. If you are expecting the thrill and excitement of being a supersoldier of Humanity, don't buy this game. This is just a poor version of Aliens: Colonial Marines.

    Yea, I know how bad that was.

    Disappointment of the year. It's even worse than "No Man Sky"

    Multiplayer is boring coz we don't have character progression and customizing, u simple can't improve ur character at all. U just have 2-3 weapons and 4 **** looking abilities. Interaction between players is also very poor coz of bad level design.

    This game have U4 engine but textures are from 90s of past century, also very rough animation and I have feeling that ingame interface was drawn in windows paint.

    Huge amount of technicals problems: poor optimization, crashes, bugs, long loading screens etc. etc.

    Refund after 2 hours of playing. Enough of this trash.0/10
