    Warhammer: Chaosbane is an absolute treat for fans of the Warhammer universe. If you like dungeon crawlers or Warhammer in general, you should definitely pick this up – especially if you don't have a phone. Be sure to check out the full review above for an exciting look at Warhammer: Chaosbane, which should absolutely be on your radar when it comes to Game of the Year considerations later in 2019.

    Progression is a bit slower than similar games on the market but that is not necessarily a bad thing.

    It doesn’t really introduce anything new to the genre, yet Warhammer: Chaosbane is a nice hack & slash ARPG with a deep and engaging endgame.

    The mission design and story can grate at times, but this is a devilishly fun homage to Diablo 3 and Warhammer Fantasy you’ll want to get your friends in on.

    A great foundation that is mechanically sound and will delight in the early hours. Stick around too long, however, and Chaosbane reveals a dearth of classes, enemies and environments. Also a weak endgame.

    A generic ARPG that offers little fun and greatly under uses the Warhammer license.

    In Warhammer: Chaosbane, there is only dull combat. Use two or three favorite abilities to kill hordes of same-looking enemies, marvel at bad animations and identical corridors, and try not to lose your mind. Even cooperative mode, which usually makes everything better, is a boring chore.

    Excelente jogo, praticamente idêntico a Diablo 3. Mesmo sistema de combate, evolução, armas, etc. Gostei muito.

    Skip Choasbane and play 40K Inquisiton Martyr, a much better Bad Arse game.
    Not only is the gameplay dull after the first initial enjoyment of using skills for the first time , but the whole game feels unbalanced and unready.
    My biggest issues is the voices, there was so many annoying player callouts , bad acting and bugs in the voice audio, it was a joke. In the first 5 hours of exploring this game I heard my characters voice change from female to male 4 times on 2 different characters, (What the !?!?! is that). The battle noises and callouts of the Dwarf and Elf are so annoying I had to turn voices volume down, but even that doesn't kill all the irritating laughs and stuff. The sound is a constant assault on your senses and it hard to like much with this constant irritation. It doesn't help that the female character look like the single mum with 5 kids smoking a ciggy outside your local pub of a tuesday, yeh there's no femme fatales or sexy badass warriors in this game, just annoying uggos.
    The leveling is terrible , it's just so limiting. First your limited by skills being locked , then by not having anywhere near enough points, then by boredom. You don't sell your gear, you just give it away, removing (trading) one of my favorite part of most ARPGS i've played. Its a buggy undercooked bore fest . Get Inquisition Martyr, a good game.
    One good thing is the graphics and performance, game world looks great an is 60 frames, but the reuse the same 3 environment 3 or 4 times each in the campaign, making that less of a win.

    Terrible Diablo clone with Anthem level loot.

    Feels like it's straight out of 2004

    Are we just going to pretend that it's okay to release sub-par games for obscene amounts of money?

    At best this is a 25 dollar game. It fits the generic hack and slash, ARPG loot based game... but without loot. It's Diablo 3 at launch minus the enemy diversity.

    Very simple, the game does nothing to innovate and make it their own. A remarkable amount of game breaking bugs, no wide screen compatibility. It would be worth while on a console if that wasn't an extra ten dollars.

    Save yourself the trouble. Wait 2 months till it goes on sale and buy yourself a copy. It is not worth 70 plus dollars for a 6 hour story mode and horrible itemization in a loot-based game.

    Hard pass

    O jogo não é ruim por parecer com qualquer outro, ele é ruim, simplesmente o pior jogo que já joguei. O preço não é alto, ele é todos osO jogo não é ruim por parecer com qualquer outro, ele é ruim, simplesmente o pior jogo que já joguei. O preço não é alto, ele é todos os superlativos de absurdo. Um caça níquel, porque você paga por um jogo que nunca mais receberá atualizações, está completamente abandonado, falta QOL em tudo! A mecânica é mal feita, as missões são extremamente entediantes, o end game tem sistemas como: Invasão que eu pago pra ver alguém fazendo aquilo: 200 missões iguais pra ganhar um anel verde de raridade alta...
