According to ESRB, this game contains: Mild Language, Violence
Parents can take note of the M rating. The game is fairly violent and bloody and probably shouldn't be played by pre-teens or early teen gamers. However, if you're comfortable with the violence in games like Halo 2, there's nothing here that should shock you.
FPS fans who can deal with an average experience should give this title a shot. It's not cutting edge or pushing any envelopes, but it's a solid run-and-gun experience. I found it fun to play between bouts with major games in the genre.
Budget gamers will find the price hard to beat. Warhammer 40,000 can be picked up for like $10 in a lot of places. $10 for a decent game is nothing to sneeze at. I've played budget titles at twice the price that weren't half as good.
Deaf and Hard of Hearing gamers will be happy to know that the game does feature subtitles. Yes, you'll be missing a little bit of music and the sounds of gunfire, but the game itself is still quite playable.
A film critic by trade, specializing in Euro-horror, cult exploitation, and Asian action cinema, Mike has written reviews for a diverse group of print and online publications. He covers horror news, movies, books, and games at TheHorrorGeek.com and Horrorsquad.com and spent two seasons as The Horror Geek on Comedy Central's pop-culture game show, Beat the Geeks.
Mike's childhood was spent playing videogames any time he got a chance. His parents had a Pong console and his grandmother had an Atari 2600, where Mike cultivated his skills by playing hour upon hour of games like Space Invaders, Berserk, and Asteroids. From those early experiences Mike learned one thing: he loved games.
In 1999, Mike became a staff reviewer at Cinescape Magazine's website where he spent a year learning the craft of game criticism. After internal changes led to Mike leaving Cinescape in late 2000, he joined up with RPGFan in 2001 and spent several years writing reviews for them. Happy, but looking for an opportunity to expound on a wider variety of titles, Mike joined GameCritics.com and hopes to help Chi, Dale, and the rest of the GC staff bring a higher level of respect to the field of game criticism.
