Pros & Cons
| Original gameplay – This masterfully blends RPG/FPS with tactical boardgame mechanics.|
– Turbulent gunplay. The difference between life and death rests on the perfect mix of quick instincts, and a carefully planned strategy.
– These two grueling themes well as atmosphere are dark and difficult. They will keep you on top of your game.
Sound design features dark ambient music and sci-fi noises. The lack of music is undoubtedly a plus.
– State-of-the-art graphics. The setting as well as the related textures are simply jaw dropping.
| – The plotA is serviceable, however it is certainly not the highlight.|
– Inability or inability to perform manual saves. This is a double-edged weapon. On one hand you can't eat the levels and on the other side you must endure some very painful sections just to call it a day.
Some tweaks are needed to Difficulty scaling. It may appear unbalanced.
– You might lose your progress due to a bugs bug.
– You will not have dedicated servers in multiplayer due to the lack of dedicated servers. Instead, you will be dependent on the internet speed as well their geographical proximity. Peering to peer isn't the best system in such a chaotic game.
Bugs and issues
|Bugs & Issues||Mods & Patches|
| Deathwing has game-breaking bugs. If you're really unlucky, you might encounter each of them in one playthrough. But if that is not the case expect at least one to ruin any session. I experienced the following. In Chapter 2, the final goal was for the enemy to be destroyed. When I arrived at the very end, the objective marker didn’t update. I couldn’t trigger the vital levers that would have been near their spawn spots. I planned my journey carefully and stopped at every resupply stop to make progress, but this was all that prevented me from moving forward. This issue didn’t vanish even when I reloaded the game. I had to start from scratch. I had to repeat the mission again after one of the collectibles disappeared from chapter 5. Chapter 8: Finally, the NPC I needed to escort got corrupted and the only thing I could do to fix its path was… Continue the level.|
– There is a 25% chance that your game will be freeze after reloading a file.
– It's possible that the dialog boxesA from your companions will not disappear. What do you want? Guess what you have to do…
– A certain collectible won't spawn could be found in chapter 9, even if you start over. Sorry, completionists.
– Although the AI may not be as bad, as other users have said, and although you can mitigate its sporadic stupidity more ways than you might believe, the behavior is still poor. You'll learn in the next paragraphs how to make best use of your allies.
|– At the moment it is almost certain the game has been abandoned, and it will not receive constant updates. You can forget about the official patches that fix some persistent issues. Alas, even members of the community have no control over this. The fan mods concentrate on secondary issues, like shaders, et cetera. This game desperately needs workshop support.|
Origins & Premise
Origins & Premise
Space Hulk (was and is now Deathwing). It was originally developed in 1989 as an innovative tactical board game that allows two players to compete in a fierce battle. Space Marines, or Space Hulk, is a game involving various cosmic debris and artificial buildings. These locations are so large they can be influenced by gravity and have their atmospheres. They are also so sinister that you can be sure that someone or some other entity is already using them for abode. The Genestealers are the complete opposite. These aliens with sharp teeth and fanged faces can hide inside these dungeons and infect others with their seeds. They can mutate the host to become stronger, which is undoubtedly the most terrifying scenario for a poor human being. The Space Marine isn’t an ordinary human, however. Terminators are the most experienced Space Marines and serve The Imperium of Man. They are in charge of purifying them. A Terminator is genetically enhanced, well protected and armed to a tee, but it's not the easiest meal. In fact, each Warhammer40k spin-off further solidifies the idea that ANYONE in this Marine/Genestealer duo can be a gla*scannon; Space Hulk Deathwing, however, is no exception. You'll find yourself just as weak as your adversary, but just as powerful. You should be ready for some carnage. The winner will likely be the first to strike.
The idea of combining a tabletop video game with an FPS is quite a novel one, but it works. One feature that stands out from the beginning is the inclusion of "door mechanics" in the game, which are similar to their physical counterparts. There are five options for opening, closing and blocking a door. These actions may appear simple at first, but they conceal one of Space Hulk’s most vital aspects. The concepts of opening and closing are quite simple, so let's focus on unblocking and blocking instead. The act of doing any one of those is not only time-consuming but it could also save your life. To put it simply, monsters can open doors if they're closed. They can't do it if they get blocked. Blocking doors behind you is a wise move. But what happens if you need to go back? Unlocking takes twice as long and you will be vulnerable during that time. You might as well get rid of the damned door. Anything and everyone will fall before your eyes with a properly placed punch – obstacles included. You've saved time (, and thus health points). But does it really make sense now that the area where you live is even more open to you? We're not talking here about any specific gameplay ideas. However, it's that type of stuff which adds even more emotional pressure to an already desperate situation.
Olethros the mysterious Space Hulk, has randomly changed dimensions and it is our job to remove it. However, we are informed about the twisted visions and actions of (, a well-known Dark Angel Librarian. According to the vivid imagery a much more mysterious thing is hidden beneath the bowels Olethros. Genestealers protect a dark secret about Olethros' ancient past. I won't go into details to avoid spoilers. I can mention that the campaign revolves around this cardinal truth. It also includes our journey to discover it. Each chapter will last 30 to 50 minutes. The biggest chunk of time is consumed through movement. This isn’t an FPS where navigating through the various scenarios is easy. You’re a slow, bulky, and cyborg who must carefully decide when to run or when to reload your weapon. The waves and ferociousness of hostile creatures can be relentless so coordination is important. Luckily, or unluckily two allies will stay with you throughout the adventure. They can make things easier or harder depending on how they are arranged. On one hand they can cover you (or take care your wounds). However, on the other they can move when you ask, open doors even when you don’t ask them, or stand stiffly as a stockfish in a stormful of projectiles. I have three suggestions if you want to buy the game without getting too mad.
1. Never forget that you can use keyboard shortcuts to your advantage. You can quickly and easily boss your partners around, change your approach whenever things are getting rocky.
2. If there is too much heat, temporarily leaving your companions behind is a good idea. However, it is important to weigh this decision’s risks and benefits.
3. The guy with the heavy guns will not accept ranged weapons. Instead, give him a melee weapon.
As you can probably see, the game allows for customization of many aspects. It not only allows you to modify cosmetics but also to withdraw from combat to safehavens where you can resupply on medical kits and switch inventories. This action is known "opening Psygates", but you can only have three or four of these Psygates per Chapter, or four depending on how many relics you collect per level. Relics, on other hand, are hidden items whose function it is to increase your skill levels after each mission. Management of your skills will greatly benefit the group in a multitude (more armour points, bonus to allies and even new abilities for you). There are also progressive unlocks for stronger weapons. And let me a*sure you, the 40k essentials are there. Plasma cannon and a*sault cannon are the best weapons. You'll soon encounter Genestealers strains you have never seen before, as the foes are just like me. Expect to encounter ravenous alien quadrupeds who will spray acid at and go invisible in front of your eyes. In the sense of being a regular, steady supply, new monsters will be introduced with a generous dropper. After all the cards have been dealt out, Deathwing is ready to throw everything you know and fear at the player. He fills every corridor with diverse, perennial peoples.
This brings us onto a whole new topic: level planning. It is obvious how meticulously the designers created this stunning scenery. Each corridor and chamber are filled with details. Visual effects like lighting or HUDs really bring them to life. It is easy to sense that these areas have seen a lot. Many armies have pa*sed through the area and their bodies are a testament. The design has some complex shapes and verticality, which is a well-executed concept. This is further highlighted by the mission shortings that occur before starting a chapter. Grand Master Belial reviews the entire map while we are shown it. Belial is a rare character whose voice acting can be praised. One ally sounds as though he were dubbed text-to speech. But, other than him, everyone gets their point across with a perfect intonation of vocals, rightly placed stops, and an overflowing sense to zeal (.
Last but not last, there are game modes. Although I've covered the main Campaign, the replayability doesn't come directly from it. Instead, you'll spend most time with the special tasks. These are a series of random tasks that occur in the exact same levels, (again. They are also randomly chosen at random). These missions can be played in single player or multi-player. As such, you will be leveling up your marine as well as unlocking cool goodies such skins and weapons. Although it's not a very exciting process, you'll still be able to earn some fancy trinkets as well as bragging rights about the level of your character.
You should start by going through the tutorial. It will help you to determine the difficulty level you need. Deathwing is capable of kicking your butt even in Easy mode, so don't feel ashamed about playing on it. I personally completed it on Hard, and it was a satisfying but exhausting experience. One thing I noticed was how things get easier as you play more. The topic of difficulty balance will be heavily affected by the addition of new weapons, skills and abilities. You can also adjust the amount of Medkits to suit the (setting.). My final and most important tip would be to make these dungeons easier by experimenting with weaponry and with your comrades. I'm certain you'll find the perfect balance between efficiency and fun.
Despite some issues, space Hulk Deathwing E Enhanced Edition succeeds in blending the FPS genre (that's horde-based) with the more nuanced themes of tabletop and role-playing games (. The amount of content is reasonable considering the (price point, especially on discount, that is seven dollars). This game is worth every penny. However, it will only be worthwhile if you enjoy the concept and are prepared to deal with those vile bugs.
