Hmm. I like Tom Chick, even though I always mix him up with Tom Francis (who I also like).
I notice this came out ages ago, and I’ve heard almost nothing about the game since… maybe there are just too many 40k games to keep them all distinct.
I’m not really a 4x player, but I found Warlock to be approachable but inconsequential. At each point there seemed to be only one useful choice so it felt like just going up through the ranks. Plus I never really had any reason to care about the units, so it all felt a bit detached.
I wonder if putting it in a recognizable setting would make a difference. I might be more likely to care about getting and preserving Terminators.
The answer to that question might depend on which version of 40k it’s based on.
If it had Eldar with Howling Banshees or Harlequins I’d be in… not sure if those still exist with Aeldariaei.
It could do with being a bit less greeny-brown as well
(What? Land Raiders are paid DLC?!! Heresy! Need to wait for a collector’s edition now…)
Aren’t you supposed to run past them? It’s a long time since I played RE1, but there were nowhere near enough bullets in that game to take out all the enemies, so it became a case of remembering which corridors had zombies in them and running past them. I think I only played the demo of RE2, but it seemed the same design style.
