About this game
Developer: Cyanide Studio
Content Rating: Mature
Bringing a unique twist to the classic gameplay of the cult board game, engage in bloody battles through an immense Space Hulk - a twisted mass of asteroids, wrecked ships and debris – as either a squad of Terminator Space Marines or the deadly alien Genestealers. Which side will you choose? Battle through two distinct, narrative-driven campaigns: lead a Blood Angels squad, which you will customise and upgrade as you progress, or control of the Genestealers for the first time in a Space Hulk game! Space Hulk: Tactics is based on the rules of the popular board game, given a fresh new spin in the form of the unique Card system. Cards give more ways to customize your squad before a match, and allow you to turn the tide of battle with powerful abilities that trigger game-changing effects when used at the right moment. Test your skills against other players in the expansive online competitive multiplayer. Command a swarm of Genestealers or a custom squad of different unit types from one of four Space Marine Chapters – the Blood Angels, the Space Wolves, the Ultramarines, and the Dark Angels. The game includes an intuitive map creation tool to design your own original maps with custom objectives, and you can share them with other players directly from in-game!

As a tactics game, the challenge and depth of Space Hulk Tactics is spot-on. The characters and levels look great. Each unit type has plenty of cool abilities to create vast possibilities for approaching a problem. Every map is laid out in such a way as to force both teams to constantly make interesting decisions.
While it isn’t going to be blowing the doors off of the tactical strategy genre, Space Hulk: Tactics is a perfectly adequate game. Thanks to a solid combat engine, good writing, twin-headed campaign, and level designer, players will certainly be getting their monies worth for the forty-dollar price tag. Now gear up and get back out there, brother. You’ve an entire species to defend!
Space Hulk: Tactics is a title that I’m sure would grow a faithful following regardless of its quality. Thankfully for Space Hulk fans, this title is worth their time and is an enjoyable game on its own merits. While there are a few setbacks that end up hampering the experience, the game gives players tools to create the kind of experience they want or to seek out fresh challenges other people have created.
