Warhammer 40K: Space Marine – Full Access Preview (Also we're giving away Space Marine posters)

Normally the words “Warhammer 40K” send my brain into immediate sleep mode, so I wasn’t too thrilled with the idea of FAPing along to the Space Marine demo that recently emerged online. I thought it looked a little derivative of Gears of War, but it turns out I had it completely backwards! Clad with their jet packs and “Chainswords,” Captain Titus and his brood are the original Republican Space Rangers, and the game’s a bloody mess of fun to boot.

Also we've got some Space Marine posters just lying around that we'd love to share with you. Just comment on the story before 9AM Sunday Pacific Time to qualify for a chance to win one.

    Amazing demo. I'm hoping the multi-player will be amazing too :)

    I had some delightfully brutal fun with the demo. May have to keep it around for some more run-throughs until the game itself comes out.

    The impact of a space marine has been diluted since the onset of Halo, but I give them credit for trying. Bold choice to go with that generic name. The only thing that really impressed me was the way the camera shook when running, but other than that it looks kinda sloppy and tedious.

    wait wait wait.... you don't play as the blood ravens O.o

    I actually play 40K, so the amount of blood pleases me. =)

  • hobojesse - August 27, 2011 11:54 p.m.

    Dude, I would love this poster. :D
  • nha-izzy-trinh - August 27, 2011 9:24 p.m.

    the demo was awesome, but the orcs didnt sound orcish at all, i mistaked them for the IG. Chaos for the win! i mean, Ultramarines!

    Demo made me decide day one buy for sure. Used to play Warhammer 40K so im really pumped for the first good non strategy game ever for the universe (pretending fire warrior never came out).

    This game BLEW me away, even with just the demo. And it IS sad that people don't know their nerd history. Warhammer 40k started everything sci-fi that we know... for the better, that is.

    lmao, now when I play the game I'm gonna call the ground pound "Stinger Splash." This game looks pretty damn good though. Also, I'd be more than happy to take a poster off your hands, guys.

    Wish the demo had multiplayer though...
  • Darkhawk - August 27, 2011 6:12 p.m.

    I'm pretty sure the idea of "space" + "marine" pre-dates Warhammer by just a little bit.
  • RedhawkAce - August 27, 2011 5:51 p.m.

    I want a poster!!!
  • Aerophobia - August 27, 2011 5:16 p.m.

    This game looks fantastic. Additionally, I would construct a shrine to GamesRadar if I am lucky enough to receive a SPESS MAHREENS poster.
  • DonNatzi - August 27, 2011 5:10 p.m.

    Chances are slim. Also old disney movie reference.
  • redwolfman - August 27, 2011 4:19 p.m.

    Looks good. Cant wait for the 40k mmo to come out.
