Space Hulk: Deathwing was developed on Unreal Engine 4, and offers you and up to three of your friends the chance to experience a desperate battle against Genestealers in the claustrophobic tunnels of a Space Hulk. You also gain skills, new abilities, and new equipment as you earn experience during missions.

    Space Hulks drift along the currents of the Warp, the immaterial dimension of Chaos. Made up of gigantic, mangled asteroids, ship wrecks, and other stellar debris, they can grow to the size of a moon, and often contain treasured and ancient lost technologies. They are often also infested with broods of the lethal Genestealer.

    In the game you take on the role of a Space Marine from one of the most secret and most feared Space Marine forces: the Deathwing of the Dark Angels Chapter.

    As a Librarian, you can also master the destructive powers of the Psykers. Your skills and performance in battle grant you Fervor Points to spend on 3 skill trees, allowing you to improve your abilities and unlock new powers.

    Don your Terminator armour and arm yourself with the iconic weaponry of the Space Marines and face the threats that await you in the Space Hulk.

    Despite all their efforts, Streum On Studio weren’t able to deliver anything else but a repetitive shooter that change Warhammer into something pretty monotonous. The fans may enjoy it, but the others should pass on it.

    Space Hulk: Deathwing delivers a solid, challenging campaign with all the elements and the atmosphere of the Warhammer 40,000 franchise. The Enhanced Edition, however, comes short on PlayStation 4 in terms of actual enhancements and polish.

    If you're looking for a science fiction FPS that'll feed your hunger until the heavyweights arrive, give it a go. Despite its flaws there's still fun to be had.

    A decent and atmospheric tactical shooter which finds itself marred by a raft of technical issues, Space Hulk: Deathwing isn't the high caliber Warhammer 40K FPS we thought it would be.

    So is Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition worth your time? Well, no. Not really. It isn’t awful, but it isn’t exactly great either. If you’re mad for Warhammer 40,000 and the lore surrounding the franchise then perhaps you’ll get more out of Space Hulk than I did. However, if you’re looking to freshen up your first-person shooter collection then feel free to skip this one.

    Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition has a few enjoyable moments, especially in multiplayer, but, despite a few graphical improvements, and some technical fixes, it does very little to improve on 2016’s original. The game is simply a old, boring and downright lacklustre first-person experience.

    Perhaps, someday, the WH40K universe will offer experiences as compelling as its fantasy brethren. Until that time, players looking to scratch the WH40K itch would do better by dusting off a last-generation console or firing up Steam and buying Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. It’s a pretty charming third-person action game that, while a little long in the tooth now, satisfies the urge to mow down bad guys by the thousands in a much less frustrating format.

It feels great to play and looks like one of the finest recreations of the Warhammer 40,000 universe I have ever seen. The Emperor Protects but a suit of Terminator Armour does a hell of a job too!

    The gameplay features an accurate portrayal of Terminators against Tyranids, as seen and depicted within the WH40K books. In that respect, the game does, very much, what it says on the tin.

    If the title played differently, then I don't think that I would like it as much. In fact, Gav Thorpe, one of the WH40K authors, whose titles include Space Hulk: The Novel, was an advisor on the game design.

They deserve these kind of scores of 6-7 for all those games not supported by a first classe enterprise, such EA, Ubisoft, Capcom, etc. This Space Hulk: Deathwing, running smoothly on PS4, is already a merit. But the game itself is fun enough. It has some bugs, but is very enjoyable, mainly online with friends. Honestly, I doubt that all these "professional" reviews are based on a complete experience after beating the game. If you love the action games, try this one. If you are a Warhammer 40k fan... purge the unclean. Expand
