WarHammer 40k Spacemarine Deom

I finally got round to playing the demo of the Warhammer 40K Spacemarine game.....WOW! It is awesome!

For those who are unaware of the Spacemarines or Waehammer 40k, here's a brief history....based on a popular modelling/wargaming hobby which started in the 80s in the UK, warhammer 40k is set in a distant and dark future where there is only war! There are many races who battle amongst each other and the Spacemarines are one of them. 

In the game, we are Spacemarines battling the evil xenos scum that are the Orks! A scavenging, maniacal race of green-bleeders who travel in hordes and kill anything in there path.

The gameplay is easy to get use to and the graphics are good...a lot better than I thought it would be. Usually the guys at Relic do real-time strategy Warhammer games but this one is on the nose. You only get to role around with 2 other Spacemarines Which sucks as they are usually in a squad of 5 but the action is awesome.

The demo let's you play 2 missions, one allowing you to use a jump-pack which is fun. You are equipped with 4 guns, the bolter, bolter pistol, a silenced/scoped weapon and a remote-controlled grenade launcher...also the o-so famous chainsword which many may think was copied from Gear's Chain saw mounted rifle...think again.

This demo has sold it for me, it's everything I expected, blood, blood, body parts, executions and more!!! Defiantly check it out!!
