    Whether you're a Warhammer 40K aficionado or not, this is just the right kind of uncomplicated stress relief to distract you from the BBC News 24 ticker.

    While it may be plagued with small technical issues and repetitious gameplay, the game rises above its problems with a solid co-op experience. Kill Team is another example of the rule that everything is better in co-op.

    A very intense, yet very short game which will be enjoyed by action fans, even if they are not fans of the Warhammer universe. It is incredibly fun, but it lacks more duration and an online mode.
  4. Solid, chunky fun with chainswords. [Oct 2011, p.115]

    Instead of simply clicking around a screen and hotkeying special moves like in Dawn of War, it's fun to actually control a Space Marine in a more personal, focused way.

    It may not blow your mind, but you'll be too busy blasting everything that moves to care.

    Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is a pretty fun arcade shooter when someone is sitting beside you. Co-op is the only good part of this game because the singleplayer is seriously lacking and online support is nowhere to be found.

    And "also-ran" hangs all over Warhammer 40K Kill Team, really. It isn't actively bad, but it makes enough missteps to fall short of good.

    Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is not an awful game. It lacks a lot of polish and gets repetitive quickly.

    If you are looking for a simple action game that you can play with a friend in local co-op to kill a few hours, may be Warhammer 40.000 Kill: Team is your game.

    While by no means a bad game, Warhammer 40.000: Kill Team doesn't completely succeed in softening the long wait for Space Marine. Repetitive missions, a hostile camera and an uneven difficulty ultimately make for a disappointing experience.

    Kill Team's campaign is quite short and can be frustrating at times. Once your done the campaign, there are collectables to be found in each of the game's levels, but those alone aren't reason enough to play through the game again. Even though Kill Team is only $10.00, the game suffers from too many problems and your money is best spent elsewhere.

    Kill Team's dual-stick shooting action has an old-fashioned arcade appeal, but it's too simple to stand out from the crowd.

    Kill Team is a short-lived game. You can blow through it in a mere five hours, and forget it shortly thereafter.

    It works. And you can kill some stuff. But that's about the only positive things I can say about it.

    More work than fun, this dual-stick shooter soon becomes a repetitive and tedious chore. Only for die-hard completist 40K fanatics.

    A perfect little mini game. Don't expect it to be a full game like space marine, but it will provide hours of entertainment. Best played coop to get the most fun out of this title. Short but highly replayable as well. Full Review »

    Awful! Bad checkpoints, unskippable cutscenes and a real lack of any sort of skill involved anywhere. Game relies upon an overwhelming amount of orcs to throw at you.. if they dont kill you the extreme annoyance caused by having to redo and rewatch sections and cutscenes, again and again will surely do the job.

    BIG fan of warhammer so this was for me too an instant purchase. That said the reason I managed to give this a 7 was because the world is so great, its a bit like a DoW mod (shame there is no PC version).

    I think there are some limiting factors. Melee characters are pretty difficult to play with and you can't skip cutscenes even on a repeat attempt. No online play (that I could find) means this is potentially tough if you want to play as say the assault marine as he can cut through enemies but has trouble dispatching some of the larger mech units.
