Though its strategy-RPG elements can overshadow the chess part of the game, it doesn’t change the fact that a chess capture is an instant kill. Regicide can make players feel far more capable than chess allows, but also occasionally powerless. Those who find comfort and excitement in Regicide’s middle ground, though, will have the joy of experiencing the strategic depth and twists its scrutinized balance and flexibility can offer.
Warhammer 40K: Regicide is a solid title that delivers hours of enjoyable and challenging gameplay that will satisfy chess and strategy enthusiasts alike. The low-learning curve, chances for easy upsets, and rapid pace of game play also opens the door for a wider audience. The games visual appeal may not be for everyone, but if your inner Warboss secretly enjoys watching armored behemoths tear each other apart, then it would be hard to find better at the price.
As the kind of 40K nerd who recognizes Regicide as the chess variant played in the official novels while also realizing this game doesn’t resemble the descriptions of it, who knows the Blood Angels sometimes go into blood-drinking frenzies, I felt obliged to play the campaign to see its story out. It’s the weakest part of Regicide though, even with voice actors familiar from the Dawn Of War series and comedy Orks named Rosenkrump and Gobstern.
