    A fantastic update to the classic twin-stick shooter formula. I would be thrilled to see either a more substantial retail release using this format or an online-enabled downloadable sequel.

    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.

    Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team isn't a game that will be remembered for a long time but as an advertisment it works great. It'a a fairly difficult game that encourages you to try out all 4 avaliable characters and play in co-op mode (but unfortunately only in local network). It's biggest flaws are: it's short and has some ridiculously placed checkpoints. Other than that it'a s pretty solid shooter, developed so we could impatiently wait for Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine.

    Addictive gameplay, despite a short completion time. But the lack of online multiplayer is the real nasty culprit.

    Amazingly enough, Warhammer 40,000: Kill Team is still an enjoyable game in spite of all its technical issues, and that's a credit to the purity of its design. If you're a fan of Warhammer 40,000 or killing stuff in general, chances are good you'll enjoy giving this one a go. Just don't be surprised if it feels like the Orks did some of the programming.

    If you're after a simple, mindless distraction that can be enjoyed by you and a buddy on the couch… well, there are plenty of other games on Live Arcade and elsewhere that can do that, and do it better.

    Kill Team is an undercooked twin stick shooter that looks nice but suffers serious technical and gameplay issues that are simply not acceptable for a game released in 2011.

    Really solid twin-stick shooter with a refreshingly simple approach of 'kill everything in sight'. Weapons feel meaty and sound chunky, presentation is top-notch for the price. Decent variety thanks to the four marine types and choice of perks; you'll finish it quickly but go back for the achievements. Great in co-op too. Expand

    If you're a 40k fan this is sort of a must buy, because you've been wanting a game like this for a long time. It's a twin stick shooter where you control two marines killing hundreds and hundreds of orks. It's simple, awesome fun. Add in the fact that there's local co-op, unlockable upgrades for your character, and 4 different character classes to chose from (Librarian, Techmarine, Assault Marine and Devastator) and you've got just enough going on here to make this simple game amusing the entire way though. Even if you're not a 40k fan this is some pretty solid co-op fun, especially for ten bucks. Expand

    Excellent fun for WH40k fans. I have not yet beat the game but I have played through most of the missions with each of the marine types. 3 survival modes and 1 level of co-op. My biggest gripe so far is that the game has frozen on me twice. Had that not happened my score would be an 8. Co-op is very fun and simulates the feel of the table top game more than any other 40k games out there. The use of perks and power ups can really makes for specially customized character. I was ecstatic when a certain alien species makes an appearance. The gameplay is also more varied than I anticipated. As other reviews have said... A must buy for 40k fans.
    Pros
    - graphics
    - each marine type is very well balanced
    - varied gameplay for a twin stick shooter
    - enemy variety
    - combo of powerups and special abilities makes you feel like a B.A
    - extras "codex" are a nice touch
    - challenging gameplay but not "cheap feeling"

    Cons
    - not enough weapon varieties - freezing bugs
    - more bosses would have been nice
    - occasional lag between checkpoints
    - online co-op strangely absent

    Great arcade-y fun for a measly 800 points, but harder than I would have liked -- at this writing I'm stuck on the encounter with the giant Tyranid. Even though you're going to die a lot playing this game, and it only supports two players, it's great to see the 40K universe get some developer love after the long darkness since "Fire Warrior", and hopefully this will inspire more people to pick up the forthcoming "Space Marine". More, please! Expand

    As a Warhammer fanatic, I really want to like this game. Unfortunately, despite its good qualities, such as graphics and atmosphere, there are things that I just cannot get over. First of all, the camera in this game is one of the worst I have seen. Half the time you don't even see what you are firing at, and that can be really frustrating! Moreover, a game like this is built for online, four player co-op; yet, Kill Team only has two player local. That is a shame...

    Don't get me wrong, it is by no means a bad game, it just could have been so much better with a little extra work and time.

    Me and my friends where drinking and we decided to buy a game off xbla. The game seems fun at start but gets really boring fast, and it's really short two around 1.5h and there is close to no replay value... Expand
