Synopsis: My initial reaction was “what the hell is this?” followed by “oooooh it’s totally Hearthstone, but BETTER”. Warhammer 40K: Space Wolf is a third-person isometric card-deck building game that determines how and when your Space Marine characters can move, shoot, and interact with enemies. You start with a basic deck and over time accrue better cards that let you level up your decks before going into a mission. I had no idea what I was getting into when I started playing, but once the confusion wore off I’m really digging the gameplay.
What I like: Great graphics. Warhammer 40K franchise. Turn-based (so I can think about what to do next.) Equipping a terminator powerfist, and punching a chaos marine right in his smug face.
What I don’t like: As a Thousand Sons tabletop player, Space Wolves? Euuuugh. Plus only 4 degrees of attack? That guy is right beside me at a 45° angle – SHOOT HIM!
Would I buy it again?: Yes
