Well this game has been out for awhile and I am sure most of you have it and played it. So my question to you is this do you think the races were accurately represented. What I mean is did relic do a good job on translating the 40k hobby into a computer game equivilent. I have been wondering about this for a little while.

I didn\'t like the game. I found it extremely boring. The boltguns are a bit strange, they fire like machineguns!

I always thought the boltgun was a machine gun just with explosive shells. I personally found the game quite fun and can\'t wait for the next expansion pack.

For me the favourite race varies, at the moment it\'s orks in quick start. The amount of green bodies you can get on a screen in that is fun beyond belief!

I think it is a good game, it is just not a very accurate representation of 40k. All the squad sizes and weapons limiteds are worng and it is a bit weird that you can take 5 heavy/special weapons per tactical marine squad. But it is a great game. Never played it online but i heard it was good.

In terms of toughness yes. Armour and tough foot troops die at a rate you\'d expect, but as for troop choices no. But I can understand the changes to make the game playable. All in all I think that they did a fairly good job of translating the game over, but that would be because GWi had a lot of input into it. Plasma Guns arent as effective.
if you think about it though its probably not rare for a SM squad to have say 5 special weapons, but pl;aying 40k on the table top wise it would be unfair, imagne a whole tatical squad with plasma guns and melta guns

THAT would be cool...
I like the game, eldar are my favourite although the orks are goog for swamping the enemy in a sea of green...

I really enjoyed the game... the only thing is i wish there were a few choices in the story mode.. for example see it in the orks and chaos eyes, maybe two options, 1) for the emperor= choose a chapter 2) Chaos. But then I guess the game would be too huge to produce:P
