Critic Reviews for Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf

Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf is a good tactical challenge marred by frustrating mechanics, questionable graphics and dodgy controls. But I had fun with it nonetheless and the card system differentiates it from other turn-based strategy games. Ultimately, your enjoyment may depend entirely on whether or not you have any prior interest in the Warhammer 40k universe.

Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf has moments of enjoyment and there is definitely depth to be found in building multiple decks, but the slow speed of the game and the random nature of the enemy placements diminishes what fun there is to be had. The Warhammer 40,000 universe is currently underrepresented on the Nintendo Switch and fans of the franchise might enjoy the game as a simple strategy game that uses the lore of the series, but there isn't much else to recommend for those who aren't familiar with the tabletop game.

With so little effort put into making Space Wolf feel like it actually belongs anywhere near the new systems, it’s hard not to be anything but disappointed and cynical about this release.

There's an interesting and fun game buried somewhere deep beneath the surface of Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf, but you'll need to crack the tough, unintuitive armour that protects the core mechanics before you can find it. Unfortunately, you don't have the privilege of a Thunder Hammer at your disposal – all you have is time, and you'll need a lot of it to get any real enjoyment out of this rather disappointing title.

‎Personally I'm a big fan of Warhammer 40,000 and I have pretty much all the existing titles from this wonderful universe where there's only war. There are titles that are better and there are others that are worse, and the console version of Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf unfortunately falls into the second category. It's really hard for me to recommend buying this title when you can enjoy it for free on mobile devices, and it's a real shame, because with having added four improvements compared to its previous versions, we could be facing a really interesting title that would attract all fans of turn-based strategy and Warhammer 40,000. Unfortunately, this has not been the case.‎

On paper I think the idea behind the mechanics for Space Wolf could be interesting...

Despite all its flaws, Warhammer 40K: Space Wolf delivers some okay solid game-play. It forces you to slow down and think about every move and action. And when you get into a good rhythm, it’s pretty satisfying when you see the victory banner and it’s onto the next map to do it all again.

GOOD - Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf is a fun, full immersion, Warhammer experience you won’t want to miss. It melds turn-based strategy with card games to create an enjoyable time. Fans of the universe will probably enjoy the game more than newcomers, but this one is still approachable enough.
