    Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf is a good tactical challenge marred by frustrating mechanics, questionable graphics and dodgy controls. But I had fun with it nonetheless and the card system differentiates it from other turn-based strategy games. Ultimately, your enjoyment may depend entirely on whether or not you have any prior interest in the Warhammer 40k universe.

    Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf has moments of enjoyment and there is definitely depth to be found in building multiple decks, but the slow speed of the game and the random nature of the enemy placements diminishes what fun there is to be had. The Warhammer 40,000 universe is currently underrepresented on the Nintendo Switch and fans of the franchise might enjoy the game as a simple strategy game that uses the lore of the series, but there isn't much else to recommend for those who aren't familiar with the tabletop game.

    Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf offers decent strategy gameplay for those fans looking for something as similar to XCOM as possible. However, lacking tutorials, weak story, and watered-down mechanics make Space Wolf feel like XCOM-lite with cards.

    If the Warhammer universe is well represented, a weak performance, unbalanced combat system, random tactical component that discards any strategic ambitions and the game's impractical requirements, which demand a permanent internet connection, make the handheld experience near impossible to enjoy and something very difficult to recommend.

    There's an interesting and fun game buried somewhere deep beneath the surface of Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf, but you’ll need to crack the tough, unintuitive armour that protects the core mechanics before you can find it. Unfortunately, you don’t have the privilege of a Thunder Hammer at your disposal – all you have is time, and you’ll need a lot of it to get any real enjoyment out of this rather disappointing title.

    Cons:
    - encountered some minor freezes (but this could be a problem of my device)

    Tested on Switch, we really felt that in addition to cell phones this could be the best place to play for portability, for different reasonsTested on Switch, we really felt that in addition to cell phones this could be the best place to play for portability, for different reasons Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf asks us for internet connection for different things, then sometimes we could feel that we are a little limited, but it really is a great title that has a great campaign.

    The models being mainly a port of a game that came out a long time ago, many may feel it a bit simple, but really the details on their maps justify these aspects, since I have always thought that tactical games of this type, and more Now that he is one of Warhammer 40K, he focuses more on his atmosphere and the feeling of fighting.

I have played the game previously and I was happy to pay a bit extra and get it on Switch since I was not happy that it needs constant internet connection on my phone. I assumed they wouldn't include this mechanics in a single player game on a portable console. Well, I was wrong. The game wont even run without internet connection so forget about playing on the go. There is no mention about this on the store page so I suppose you can file this under false advertising.
    The gameplay itself is really fun however. The mechanics are done well and overall its a nice strategy game. Thought if you want to play it at home, you can probably pick it up much cheaper on different platforms.
