So, why three stars (really, I would give it 3.5)? The game suffers from a lack of diversity in enemies. There are about 6 varieties of Orks and 2-3 other enemies, and you see those same models over about 20 hours of gameplay. It gets old after a while, even though the kills are good and gruesome. To make it worse, the fights toward the end of the game get longer and more tiring, even though they are against the same group of enemies that you've been slaughtering for hours already. The combat, while entertaining, is simplistic and repetitious. Especially when it comes to melee, you'll find yourself doing the same combos and finishing moves in every fight simply because this heals your character's injuries. Other minor annoyances include the clumsy jump-pack sequences, occasional difficulty spikes, and the checkpoint save-game system.
If you like the W40K universe and/or shooter game, Space Marine is probably worth a try. While I only played the campaign and not multiplayer, the story is okay and the gameplay is polished, though it gets repetitive over time.

-Clumsy jump-pack sequences
Excellent controls, story arc, lighting, sound, animation, and so much more. Characters and story reflected the Warhammer 40K nicely. I enjoyed this game more so than the movie following the same chapter, and I don't want to gripe, but there was so much that I still want to see through great accomplishments like this in the future. The Ultramarines are not my favorite chapter, maybe we can connect a story arc with a choice of characters, I wouldn't mind playing an Iron Hands...give me the option of playing as a Chaos Space Marine...yeah, I know, too much to ask for in one game, but it would be nice...armor customization...and for those who are not familiar, my gripe is not with the online multi-player, you actually can do these things, I just wouldn't mind having this option in the solo campaign.
Great showcase of the Mechanicum forges, immense, mind boggling size and dimension just like the books. I think the Space Marines were a little soft spoken though, and should have been scaled much bigger than the humans, including the inquisitor, he was too big, same size a Space Marine and didn't have his entourage as many do in the books, but was a perfect piece to the puzzle, great character, again, straight from the books, awesome design and role.
Big fan of orks, glad they were in this game, the Warboss, again, came straight from the books, great representation. All enemies, including the final fight was peerrffffeecccctttttt!
Finish the trilogy Black Library, finish the trilogy. As I'm writing this, an online MMO version is being developed to be released on PC, PS4 and Xbox One sometime in 2015, but I really wouldn't mind the second and third installment of this story and character. Just recently started writing reviews on Amazon and needed to go back and give this game its 5 stars, I've played it a few times, including the fun online matches it offered. Great replay value for Warhammer 40K fans.
What could have been left of the ork after the chainsword bit into its hide was unrecognizable and absolute, as it should be.
This game seems to like its quick time events, and the end is a complete cliff-hanger that will probably not be resolved since THQ went under.
I have to give this game credit for trusting that I know how to hide from projectiles without sticking my Ultramarine ass to a chest-high wall. In addition, the pace is alright, so you are not doing the same thing for a long time. Not that you wouldn't want to pull on a Jump Pack and slam into Daemons with a Storm Hammer with the full fury of the Emperor.
One glaring issue with this game is that is does the thing where it slows you down during exposition, and it hides load zones with elevators. The beige-brown industrial environment isn't much to look at either, but you are on a Forgeworld, after all.
I should mention that I am a PC player, and I had no problems getting into the XBOX360 controls with this game. They are fairly tight, and I would imagine an experienced console player would do great.
I did not play the multiplayer. I heard that it is fun, but lags like crazy.
"FOR THE EMPEROR!"
For me the campaign just isn't long enough. I wanted more!
Online play is fantastic. A drawback is that the online play is in what is basically giant arenas or mazes and not like the more real world maps you get in COD. Another problem is that there isn't an option for a multiplayer campaign. There is a DLC that would allow 4 players to play in a campaign like match and some of the maps are much better than the arena/maze style. There is talk of a DLC that would bring back a Space Hulk like match as well. I look forward to that. :)
Although there is a tremendous amount of gore in the game, foul language is left out. Yea!
my first match had me on team opposed by players that had maxed out their multiplayer stats.
good game, could have been alot more single playerwise but i don't regret buying it
