Critic Reviews for Warhammer 40,000: Regicide
Warhammer 40,000: Regicide cleverly combines two different strategy games, but it also loses something along the way. It took me a long while to grow accustomed to the Regicide rules, and I still can't honestly say that I like having my Librarian shot up by a bunch of pawns. Or how a laser toting Loota can kill my Assault Marine in one shot. Sure, Regicide takes strategy to an all new level, but this level is a tad too brutal for me.
Regicide's attempt to combine the Warhammer 40,000 setting and chess produces mixed results with a forgettable narrative and lackluster gameplay experience. While the Regicide mode that combines chess with tactical movement and combat is an interesting concept to play with, it often is brought down by odd design quirks and a gameplay experience that lacks any sort of visual flair. Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is best recommended to only the truly dedicated fans of the Games Workshop created universe.
Ultimately Warhammer 40,000: Regicide is all about the gameplay. It's fun and well optimized to run on even lower end PCs, and as a result it represents an awesome time killer. It's worthwhile to boot up whenever you're idly hanging out with friends, in between classes, or when you're just interested in challenging yourself mentally.
