    Warhammer: Chaosbane is an incredibly entertaining game but at this point in time, that fun lasts as long as players continue to be invested in the repetitive nature of an ARPG. Right now, the pool of enemies, while aesthetically cool, begin to feel tired after awhile. It takes a considerable amount of time before modified enemies show up and the variety of equipment might not be enough for some players to invest the time it will take to soar to the highest echelons of skill.

    Warhammer: Chaosbane borrows the elements that made past action RPGs of the same genre so addicting , perhaps sticking a bit too closely, resulting in a game that may feel a little too familiar for veterans of the genre.

    A simple, accessible, and fun action RPG that’s particularly good fun in co-op. Generic as they come, but what’s here is well balanced, detailed and smooth in motion. [Issue#164, p.92]

    Warhammer: Chaosbane brings excellent class design and interesting builds, but forgets the variety in enemies, environments, and loot.

    Warhammer: Chaosbane is a cool ARPG that would have been better if it wasn't a current gen game but unfortunately, we're not in 2005 anymore. For all of its flaws, the combat system is still well done yet the problem is that it feels like a bare minimum product. The fact that there are no optional missions and only a few bosses and different kinds of enemies makes it get repetitive very quickly.

    As it is now, it’s a bit half-baked and feels rushed.

    Even the few inventive stretches of the game are ultimately driven into the ground by a punishing sense of repetition.

    Excelente juego! la verdad que las notas bajas no se entienden. Es un juego tipo Diablo que no tiene nada que enviarle. Acabo de terminar elExcelente juego! la verdad que las notas bajas no se entienden. Es un juego tipo Diablo que no tiene nada que enviarle. Acabo de terminar el 1er capitulo y no puedo dejar de jugar. La verdad está buenisimo! lo unico malo a mi parecer es la poca variabilidad de enemigos, pero no quita que sea un gran juego. Pongo nota 10 para compensar, pero objetivamente le daría un 8. Expand

    This is exactly as advertised a Diablo clone set in the Warhammer universe. That being said, I'm finding it thoroughly enjoyable. The storyThis is exactly as advertised a Diablo clone set in the Warhammer universe. That being said, I'm finding it thoroughly enjoyable. The story and lore are top notch, as to be expected. The visuals are fantastic, although I sometimes wish I could control the camera or zoom in to see the details or what the enemies look like a bit better. Yeah, it's a bit repetitive but so are most hack and slash games out there. Bigben Interactive also released the 40K Martyr title, and that game has gotten a load of updates and DLC both free and paid for, so I am very excited to see what else they add to this game.

    If you like the Warhammer lore and Diablo gameplay do yourself a favor and get on the Chaosbane train. It's a engrossing good time.

    It's a quality ARPG wrapped in the truly wonderful fluff of Warhwmmer's old world. First point, it's a Diablo clone that knows it's a DiabloIt's a quality ARPG wrapped in the truly wonderful fluff of Warhwmmer's old world. First point, it's a Diablo clone that knows it's a Diablo clone. It doesn't screw around with the winning formula too much so any ARPG fan can just jump in. The worst part of the game is the insanely bad voice wanting. It almost ruins the story, but we aren't playing for the story, were playing for all the gory carnage. On that front it truly succeeds. Sure, it needs more content of it wants to actually complete with Diablo, but for a first go that just launched, it is definitely worth the time and money. Expand

    Skip Choasbane and play 40K Inquisiton Martyr, a much better Bad Arse game.

    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.

    The story is irrelevant. The Gameplay is no fun at all. You can kill some time playing chaosbane while waiting for a better game.

    Looked like a potentially enjoyable Diablo clone, set in Warhammer times.

    But it's so unfinished! Half done, bugged, I have no words. It's the only title I have to regularly force quit a couple times a day!
    Multiplayer is buggy, I've seen black screens. Enter into scripted dialogues with no UI coming up… to be attacked by monsters. No button would do ANYTHING. Joining a multiplayer game is hard enough.

    Gameplay had potential, someone attempted to reinvent what works, but didn't take it all the way. Press X, use a fancy skill, press X so your energy recharges, all the way.

    I regret having wasted money.
