  • Summary: Over a year has passed since the Great War, during which the brutal Chaos armies swept across the Empire lands. Many fierce battles still rage across the Old World. Portions of the defeated Chaos armies have retreated to the distant Northern Wastes, while others have fallen to hostileOver a year has passed since the Great War, during which the brutal Chaos armies swept across the Empire lands. Many fierce battles still rage across the Old World. Portions of the defeated Chaos armies have retreated to the distant Northern Wastes, while others have fallen to hostile groups. Among these tribes, new Champions rise up in an effort to reunite the Chaos forces, yet eventually all fail. None can match the power of their fallen leader, Asavar Kul. The united Empire and High Elf forces hunt the Chaos hordes from the Empire territories, still alert because danger lurks around them in the form of smaller enemy warbands that loot the settlements of the border lands. Now, four fully playable powerful armies - Empire, Chaos, Skaven and High Elves - as well as additional controllable races (Orcs, Dwarfs, Vampires, and Goblins), clash amidst breathtaking scenery in an epic battle for land and power.

  1. The units in the game are very detailed and unlike a lot of strategy games they look really good when the camera is zoomed in all of the way. Furthermore the game provides an excellent unit editor that really lets you customize the look of your armies.
  2. 80
    Likely to be appreciated by the Warhammer fanatics amongst you or Total War fans looking for a fantasy-based spin.
  3. It looks great, plays well and really kicks ass on multiplayer mode.
  4. Only hardcore fans of Warhammer need really apply: there are quite simply too many other RTS games out there which are far better, many of which beat Mark Of Chaos at its own game without even intending to.
  5. It can be a great service to fans of Fantasy Battles and medieval warfare in general; the issue is that it demands a perfect storm of circumstances to fully enjoy it.
  6. 70
    The biggest problem is that it isn't quite there yet in terms of expansiveness. If you're mainly interested in the single-player campaign, then you may be a little disappointed.
  7. Mark of Chaos bridges a gap between tabletop and PC gaming, but will leave both sides less than impressed.

    I hope they make an expansion pack for this one because I enjoyed it quite a bit. The writing is superb along with the voice acting. After a I hope they make an expansion pack for this one because I enjoyed it quite a bit. The writing is superb along with the voice acting. After a few patches, they put in flanking and charging feedback and that really made the tactics a lot more obvious. If Namco keeps supporting the game with patches, it will keep getting better and better. Expand

    Yet another victim of premature release. While it certainly might appeal to Total War fans yearning for some magic and Warcraft-like hero 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 hence it's not gonna be the favorite in the online RTS gaming community either. 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

The 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 different missions, they're practically the same game. Average Expand

    Very loose translation of table top game to an unsatisfying real-time format. The beautiful graphical recreation of the dark and gritty 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. Expand

    This game is nothing like warhammer. It's basicly a warcraft clone click fest... I feel like crying...
