Warhammer is a frustrating license. When adaptations using the brand pop, they’re fantastic. Great settings, rich gameplay, and a lot of perks that come from being able to draw from such long-lived and celebrated IPs. Blood Bowl 2, Inquisitor: Martyr and Mechanicus were all fantastic, and some of my favorite experiences.
The Adventures Of Poirot’s Robin Hood
HIGH The lovely blend of narrative and intense strategy.
LOW The characters are stereotypes.
WTF I could’ve solved my toughest challenge by watching the trailer.
Genocide From The Other Side
HIGH The crazy cool aesthetic of dark demonic warfare.
LOW I swear I clicked on that correctly…
WTF Standard missions are “Impossible” difficulty.
HIGH Hyper-crunchy team-based tactics. Lesbian cowgirls.
LOW Playing 3/4ths of the boat level without knowing I could swim.
WTF Why can’t I pick up ammo and give it to a teammate?
A Babylon Zoo
HIGH Bite-sized arenas.
LOW Paying to reset skills.
WTF Calling the enemies ‘redbacks’.
I Will Never Be The Baba Yaga
HIGH Stalking my prey and exacting righteous vengeance.
LOW Getting shot by a dude who literally appeared out of nowhere.
WTF Why does everyone think they can take John Wick in single combat?
Sacrificing Story For Mechanics
HIGH Art design and voice acting.
LOW The story is forgettable.
WTF Why do those men look possessed?
Purge The Non-Believers
HIGH New maps and characters.
LOW The additional story is a bit lackluster.
WTF The class that “hurts so good”
Put Down Humanely
HIGH The premise.
LOW The controls.
WTF Was this an early build?
