About

"Armageddon, a world whose name has become a byword for war and destruction on a massive scale…" -Lord Commander Solar Eugenian

There is no peace amongst the stars... It is the 41st millennium and there is only war!

We live in the Imperium of Mankind, the greatest empire the galaxy has ever known. Millions of planets united in their adoration for the Emperor.

But we are not alone…

A massive space hulk is drifting towards Armageddon, and the planet is threatened by the war hungry brutal Orks. Welcome to the battlefield!

ARMAGEDDON MUST NOT BE LOST
Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon is a fantasy war game set in the Second War of Armageddon. You take the role of defending the planet as the Imperium of Man against the Ork invaders. Throughout the campaign you will also be joined by three chapters of Space Marines: the Salamanders, Blood Angels and the Ultramarines.

In this hex-based, turn-based strategy game, players will lead the Imperial forces of the Armageddon Steel Legion and Space Marines from a variety of Chapters against the Ork invasion through over 30 scenarios, on the hostile terrain of the planet and its gigantic Hive Cities.

The game features a complex plot, involving known characters from the Warhammer 40,000 universe and while advancing through the campaign, the player will have the ability to carryover his core force from scenario to scenario.

Players fight alongside Commissar Yarrick and Commander Dante against the cunning Ork Warboss Ghazghkull Thraka and carry over battle-hardened veterans from scenario to scenario, using their experience and upgrading their equipment.

On top all this extensive modding options are available through a powerful and easy-to-use game editor.

Warhammer 40,000: Armageddon reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Deutsch
Rating: Since I don't think anything of a Percentage Rating (E.g. Is the Graph now 80% or 82%?) I make it easier for myself and rate from-about 0 to + +. By the way, the 0 does not represent 50%, but also a genre standard. Info: I played through the Game on "Medium." The first two of three Campania were played in version 1.03 and the last Campania In the recently updated Version 1.04 Short Update: Got the Tutorial inc. First Kampanie with version 1.10 re-played. Thanks to the new Units, some improved Layout & (Bug) fixes, the Game plays itself a bit more round. Unfortunately, nothing changes that you don't need/should use ~ 90 +% of all Units to win. Rezesion in Short Form Graphics & Sound are sufficient. The Unit Diversity is enormous But you only need about 6 different Units to win the Game. Bugs I had none but in the Kampanie 1 & 2 were (in the V1.03) in two Missions the Mission Goals wrong. The Game doesn't really take advantage of Lap Strategy. Despite some Shortcomings, the Game makes you feel Good. Buy recommendation from me. Rezesion in Exclusionary Version Graphic Graphics (in-game): 0 sufficient Graphics (in the Mission Descriptions): 0 Very nice Pictures but everything without Animation. Sound Language from Characters: 0 to + The Voices "fit" the Character Music:-to 0 Dudelt so in front of you; However, you can adjust the Volume. Lap StrategieFeatures extended by Mission Ampania 2 & 3 Entry into Game 0: Despite missing a usable Turturgical neck Amazingly fast. After one or two Missions, you know how the Bunny is going. Difficulty-to 0: Fluctuating but sometimes already demanding. Balancing--up to 0: If you have the wrong Units, a Mission can become very difficult to impossible. Unfortunately, you can only notice This when it is far too late. Unit Diversity--: There are Units without End, but you only need a few of them. I got along with a Scouting Type, a Tank, an Infantry Type and two Artillery types. Flight Units have too few Bonuses (or too expensive) to use. You can upgrade the normal Tanks to the Super Tanks (Baneblade & Co) but not the normal Infantry. Here only "sell" and buy Spacemarines anew; So you lose the Experience of old Unity. Units gain Experience and you can take them into the next Round. Lap Time limit:--up to 0 Brrr so what was modern in the 80/90s but hasn't lost anything in Games these days. Technology/Operation/Other Reload Time: + very short Story: 0 to + nice but nothing stunning. Game World: 0 WH40K offers a lot but it was built a little too little into me. But for the Game, it's enough. (I know the Universe from other Games, Books and P & P) Bugs:-to 0 Bugs themselves no had BUT the Mission Goals do not always tune. It is just frustrating If, according to mission goals, one is to occupy 4 cities, but in "Reality" with all your Units you should let yourself fall behind. Turturial--Yes, there is one but it didn't get me anything. Just done too badly. Editor: Not tested Multiplayer yet: Not tested My Conclusion: The Game is not An Eye-range, you could have hollered out of the 40K Univerum more and yes it doesn't quite run around BUT it has been Fun for me. The Update to V1.04 has also brought in a few new Units and other Goddies. There is a Buy Recommendation from me.
