    Space Hulk: Tactics is the most impressive Warhammer 40K effort I've played in recent memory.

    A good adaptation of the board game. Especially designed for the fans of the saga, but challenging enough to attract new followers.

    Space Hulk: Tactics is probably the best video game adaption of the classic board game yet, with decent presentation and some welcome additions. But the faithfulness of its adaption only highlights the limited tactics offered by the board game's basic setup, and its lower budget makes for a lack of polish in some areas. Strategy buffs may be diverted for a bit, but won't fall in love.

    A faithful board game adaptation that lacks the depth to grab you in its power fist and not let go. [Issue#336, p.83]

    If you have a soft spot for the Space Hulk board game, this title is a no-brainer. If you're new to the Space Hulk franchise it might seem that this game is extremely slow and boring and very difficult to boot. The official rule set is adhered to closely which results in some tense games, partly because of the elevated difficulty. Load times are pretty long however and the on-screen texts are barely legible. The graphics are very dark and grey which makes for poor visibility from time to time.

    I reckon Space Hulk: Tactics sinks well with the target demographic but it makes no effort to convert non-believers to join the Imperial cause. The fact that it works as well as it does, goes solely down to the original board game. Outside it, it’s just not attractive or appealing enough. Maybe that’s the reason there was no online activity going on during the review period, no matter what time of day I tried to seek out opponents. Playing Space Hulk in the real life with local opponents is a true social occasion - something that Space Hulk: Tactics can’t achieve.
