Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is a Shooting game available on the PS3. It can be played in Singleplayer modes.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is a Shooting game. Shooting games present a world in which the character must shoot their way out of dangerous situations. They provide the player with an array of weapons tailored to specific tasks. This unavoidably involves a combination of fisticuffs and gun based fighting that dictates the violent nature of these experiences. Beneath this harsh exterior though is often an intricate tactile game - and this is usually what drives the player.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine can be played in a Singleplayer mode. Single Player Campaign games focus on one player's experience. Rather than collaborate with other players either locally or online, players progress alone. The campaign style of gameplay offers a connected series of challenges to play through. These chapters work together to tell a story through which players progress. Single player games are able to focus on one experience of a scenario, so that it is usually a richer, more visceral game.


Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine will attempt to move from real time strategy to third person combat. By balancing both melee and long range combat it aims to differentiate Space Marines from other action games, but with the rich universe of Warhammer so heavily mimicked by other franchises it may struggle.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine sounds about a generic as a game can be in the modern market. It can be easy to forget Games Workshop is the grandfather of chunky armoured military personnel. As their story goes, these seasoned troops were the toughest their empire had to offer and were able to take on dozens at a time, making them the perfect subject for a game.
