    After reading the previews and reviews in Micromanía (Spain) I was looking forward to the game, however I was soon disappointed. The start-up movie is great and really sets the scene, but although the graphics are good, the gameplay lets this game down. Basically, WH: MOC plays like WH: Dark Omen; this is a really old game that I had for my PS1 and apart from the graphics and After reading the previews and reviews in Micromanía (Spain) I was looking forward to the game, however I was soon disappointed.

    Good concept, however severely let down by the loading times between battles, which renders the game unplayable.

    A beautiful concept left pitifully incomplete. Brace yourself for the load times. A mission will last 20 minutes, and loading takes 3 minutes in, 3 minutes out... you end up spending half your time waiting. there are actually TWO load screens, in succession. One was just not enough to convey the struggle of loading that this game has. You can only play it in short bursts before you A beautiful concept left pitifully incomplete.

    Good concept, haste with launching, little attention to community. Up to patch 1.6 it's rather like beta. Would you believe they are going to include friendly fire only with the patch 1.7? It's would be quite another game after that, won't it? In spite of promising concept a not better semblance of TotalWar.

    Very loose translation of table top game to an unsatisfying real-time format. The beautiful graphical recreation of the dark and gritty Warhammer setting is the only highlight of this tactically shallow, half-finished arcade game. Warhammer fans and real-time tactic gamers should look elsewhere.

    Yet another victim of premature release. While it certainly might appeal to Total War fans yearning for some magic and Warcraft-like hero action, as well as many WHFB fans would certainly enjoy just any PC title bearing the Warhammer logo (it's been 8 years since Dark Omen!), Mark of Chaos is too disappointing in single player (or should I just say it's incredibly boring?..) and Yet another victim of premature release.

Despite the gorgeous graphics engine and the pretty decent core of gameplay mechanics there's simply not enough content to make the game fun. They still can fix it in an expansion or something, but at this moment Mark of Chaos doesn't really have anything to withstand the competition in the genre. Expand

  1. Even though a few aspects of Warhammer: Mark of Chaos aren't all that they could be, it nicely distills all of the best characteristics of the tabletop game. It's as close as you're going to get to the real thing without spending a fortune on miniatures.

    A pretty fun game. It's not perfect by any means and has some bugs that can be annoying, but the battles themselves offer a good variety of strategies set in a dark and brooding environment.

    If instead you'd like a cup of real-time Warhammer that's like the Total War series' tactical battles -- only with magic, monsters, and that trademark "grim world" panache -- this is that game. To Warhammer hardcores, that might sound like nerfing. It's not.
