Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is a jolly, blood-spattered tactical romp through the grim, dark future.

A better Warhammer game than the last few.

A nice turn-based tactical game, simple to understand but hard to master, set in the ever-fascinating Warhammer 40.000 universe. The experience is fun, but just two armies and one campaign don't fully justify the relatively steep price.

The only major flaws holding this game back are that there only two playable factions and only one faction gets their own single-player campaign. But aside from that, Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is a great, addictive strategy game that wonderfully translates the rules and action of the tabletop into a video game format.

Aside from some doubts about the balance and the AI, and some Warhammer-specific quibbles, Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is a great Blood Angels experience.

Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is a solid turn-based tactical game, but also quite generic. That's because the developers did almost nothing to differentiate their game from other titles in the same genre. Recommended if you're a WH40K enthusiast, but demanding turn-based tactics fans might want to look somewhere else.

Thanks to offering only two factions and a limited number of modes, Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector might not be the deepest or most complete strategy game ever made, but it’s definitely one of the best and most authentic uses of the license to date. Challenging strategic battles, appropriately melodramatic voice work, more than decent graphics, and a respectful translation of the tabletop game to a digital format make this a must-have for fans of the franchise, and even appealing for casual strategy fans who are not yet invested in all things Warhammer.

A solid turn-based strategy experience that explores the Space Marine power fantasy, marred by humdrum mission design.

Dreadnoughts! Okay, so that doesn't say much, but every time they wade into melee or open up with their Storm Bolter, it's just so cool.

The tactical approach is smart and well balanced, but we wished for more contents and modes.
