Warhammer: Chaosbane can stand proudly alongside some of the best games that have used the foreboding, Gothic Old World as a setting.
Mediocre and repetitive, there are far better options for action RPGs out there.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is a good, solid dungeon crawling action RPG, but outside of a well executed Warhammer theme it's just not doing anything new. I feel bad for underselling Chaosbane, as I did enjoy my time with it. However, it's standing in the shadow of Diablo III, a titan that's been doing it for a long time and that you can't help but make comparisons with. Warhammer: Chaosbane is good and it could mature into something great, but right now it pales next to its daddy.
Warhammer: Chaosbane tries to do new and unique things to the dungeon crawler genre. To simply call it a "Diablo clone" would be insulting. The team deserves a standing ovation for their attention to detail.
An overall enjoyable tromp into the fantasy half of the Warhammer universe. Many similarities with Diablo 3 allow Chaosbane to differentiate itself from its other rivals.

A good Diablo like game that doesn't does anything particularly new but still is fun specially when playing on coop.

If you're after a fairly enjoyable loot-chaser to work out some of that daily stress, Chaosbane is worth a look.
Iif you feel like switching your brain off for a bit and doing some serviceable mulching then….maybe? I feel like Eko Software had a chance to bring back some of that dread and foreboding to the Diablo formula that Diablo 3 did away with. Warhammer is baroque and silly but it’s also rich with detail and tragic heroes, and Chaosbane plays the whole thing a bit straight, storywise.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is a solid first entry into the ARPG genre for the franchise. There are some cool twists on the theme like the God Tier system, but there are equally as many baffling decisions such as the matchmaking system, lack of economy, and decidedly absent customization options. There are the makings of a solid ARPG in here, but it needs a little more time in the oven to bake.
Warhammer: Chaosbane is a good game, but it would've been better had it featured expansive environments.
