Ascension is certainly the best Space Hulk video game to date - by a long way. The troublesome UI and difficulty may put some off, but these problems certainly don’t detract so much from the game as to make it not enjoyable. If you fancy a slow paced, strategic challenge with almost 100 hours of gameplay, then you will love Ascension. While it’s so close to the spirit of the original tabletop game that fans should add another point to the score. Well done to Full Control for making the Space Hulk game I had envisioned all those years ago, now get started on doing a version of Necromunda, please.

Space Hulk Ascension is a love letter to the source material. Not a single pixel does not show the passion and respect that the makers must have for the original board game.
