While the basic building blocks of a decent experience seem to be here, the undeveloped gameplay, and repetitive structure – that degenerates into tiresome battles of attrition – mean that even transplanting it into the co-op multiplayer mode and adding more unlocks and rewards won’t be enough to keep your finger on the trigger for long.

What Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition is lacking is finesse in its execution, however. And it's also lumbered with the fact that Space Marine Terminators are big, bulky things that surprisingly aren't much fun to play as. If you really love Warhammer 40K and have a great deal of patience, you might like Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition. For most, though, it'll just be an exercise of tedium.

At the end of the day Space Hulk: Deathwing Enhanced Edition feels like a fairly solid addition to the Warhammer 40k Universe. Its setting and visuals offer a great look at the dark gritty universe and the deliberate choices in combat mechanics will make you feel like a Space Marine. However, those same choices will definitely be a turn off to a lot of FPS players and when coupled with some awkward AI it’s safe to say this title won’t be for everyone.

Deathwing has so much potential sitting there with the Dark Angels alone, not to mention roaming a Space Hulk, it’s an absolute shame it falls short of the Emperor’s expectations. I’ve been looking forward to this one since I first saw it at several E3s ago. Too bad it’s as void and as lifeless as the derelict ships of the Space Hulk itself.

All in all, Space Hulk is a really fun and tense shooter that is best enjoyed with friends. Unlike many other similar games, the single player, despite its flaws, has something to offer lone wolves as well.

While at times it can be pretty atmospheric, the pacing can be too slow and certain missions can feel drawn out. Some of the missions just felt too long for our liking. Deathwing does come alive in multiplayer but, unless you're a fan of Warhammer, there are probably other co-op shooters you should probably look at first.

Those wanting a great squad-based shooter or a truly essential Warhammer 40,000 game will have to keep searching. At a glance, Deathwing seems like a solid adaptation and it nails that distinctive Space Hulk look and atmosphere, but there’s just not enough variety or depth to keep players engaged beyond those first few encounters.

While the Enhanced Edition does make for a more tolerable experience, Space Hulk: Deathwing is still held back by an incredibly under-designed campaign, along with clunky mechanics that ooze into the multiplayer. The aesthetic, and overall tone, does shine, but the core gameplay loop feels severely lacking.

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.
David Martínez — May 23, 2018
Un "shooter" muy fiel al juego de mesa en que se inspira, pero que falla en los aspectos técnicos y sobre todo en la fluidez de los combates. Se agradece el modo cooperativo y la posibilidad de personalizar a los marines del Ala de muerte. Fallos técnicos, y poca fluidez en los enfrentamientos. No se reflejan los aspectos tácticos.

La campagne solo aurait pourtant été l'occasion parfaite pour présenter cet univers particulier aux novices mais, hélas, elle se contente du service minimum, aussi bien en terme de scénario que de gameplay. Reste un mode coop un poil plus intéressant, car forcément boosté par la présence de partenaires humains. Mais pas de quoi crier au génie...

Les bougres de Streum On Studio ont tout tenté pour améliorer ce FPS coopératif et leur abnégation se doit d’être saluée. Space Hulk : Deathwing déborde toujours autant d’enthousiasme. Malheureusement, il se dégage de cette Enhanced Edition ce même sentiment de redondance capable de rendre monotone l’univers de Warhammer 40.000.

L'approdo nei negozi in formato retail non viene facilitato da una localizzazione del tutto mancante (il gioco è completamente in inglese, testi e dialoghi), ed è un peccato perché la campagna di Space Hulk: Deathwing di per sé ha molto da dare, specie agli appassionati del franchise targato Games Workshop.
Andrea Giongiani — May 28, 2018
Una nuova classe e un sistema di personalizzazione delle armi inedito aiutano a dare un senso alla progressione, ma la ripetitività degli scontri e la pochezza dell'intelligenza artificiale dei personaggi sono nemici troppo grandi anche per i più potenti campioni degli Space Marine. Il concetto base di Space Hulk è stato rispettato, ma poteva essere implementato meglio.

Deathwing è una fantastica simulazione di epurazione targata Terminator, un’eccezionale riproduzione dell’atmosfera spaventosa che aleggia in ogni angolo e corridoio di uno Space Hulk, ma allo stesso tempo è una grande occasione sprecata per una licenza che, tralasciando le sue uscite nel campo della strategia in tempo reale, necessita di nuove e fresche riletture "videogiocabili".
