    A pleasant peek for fans of univers, who want more "forties". The remaining players of turn-based strategies lets look elsewhere. There is a lot to choose from.

    So yeah, there are still too many Warhammer games, but this is exactly why that’s a problem, because if you start to ignore them and let them wash over you, you risk missing out on the good ones. Like Battlesector.

This game is just lacking more factions which the devs Stated in roadmap they were bringing!. Hope for Necrons,Imperial Gaurd and Chaos Factions! Game has some Balancing issues but Its pretty dang polished and well made for a Indie game" This game has alot of love put into it far more then most 40k games. Support this game and Dev team so we can get more quality Warhammer 40k games! Full Review »

    Great atmospheric round strategy in the Warhammer 40k universe that comes very close to the tabletop template.

    Great atmospheric round strategy in the Warhammer 40k universe that comes very close to the tabletop template.
    It offers fun and challenging turn-based combat,
    a very coherent campaign so far in which you can put your army together according to your personal play style and after the missions you can use the HQ upgrades to unlock many useful items / skills for your heroes and troops.
    With Battlesector, Black Lab delivers one of the best strategy games in the Warhammer 40k universe since DoW 2.
    There is also a photo mode as a little extra that you can use to take some good screenshots.
    In Battlesector not everything is perfect (only 2 factions, AI weaken) but it is a lot of fun and has a very good basic basis, which can be further improved with the announced faction DLCs.
    So I have a clear recommendation, especially for Warhammer 40k fans.

    Feels cheap, pacing is too slow, animations and sounds are weird, overhaul it is very dull.
