It is the 41st Millennium in Sub-Sector Aurelia, a cluster of worlds on the edge of the Galaxy, and a battle of epic proportions is about to begin. Ancient races will clash across the planets that dot this section of space, battling for the greatest of stakes - not only the claim to the land and its bounty, but the fate of each race.
Where should i start, played it through 3 times so good it is. guiding my small squad through the levels, looking for cover, using special powers. The brutality in battle, when smashing through orks got me an adrenaline kick close to an FPS. The classes so well done.
with the sniper cyrus for example, scouting out the enemy and calling in artillery barrages and/or taking out key enemies with the sharpshooting ability. or setting up devastators with their huge *** MG or plasma gun, suppressing hordes.
selectable missions with rewards, unit customization in a variety close to rpg.
only downside (which isn't really one) is that you have to sign in too steam and LIVE to play, and that its often hard to choose your squad members for wanting them all.
the campaign savegames are coupled to your LIVE account so be careful not to mix/mess the accounts up.
