Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine is a third-person action shooter, based on the Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 tabletop miniature wargame. Players take on the role of the Space Marines, battle enemies made up of Orks and Forces of Chaos, in both melee and ranged combat. A fury meter, when filled, allows the player to either perform powerful melee attacks, or slow time for aiming. The game also includes an online multiplayer mode.
Forge World Graia, a planet devoted to military production, is being attacked by Orks. Captain Titus leads his squadron of Ultramarines to the planet in order to nullify the Ork invasion, only to discover an even greater threat.
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine received mainly positive reviews, with an average score of 75%, praised for its visuals and re-creation of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, but criticized for its linear plotline and uninspired environments.
This is a high 3-star rating. Playing the game on Hard difficulty, and not dying or restarting the first four chapters, will require some good skills. There are also 14 online trophies to worry about, with plenty of weapon kills that require a lot of time. Finally, acquiring a total of 40,000 kills can be very time consuming. The online trophies can be boosted in a private match, which would bring this rating down to a low 3-star. Either way, this game requires both time and skill.
If you're playing legitimately, expect over 100 hours of gameplay, and roughly 70 hours if you're boosting the multiplayer trophies.
While it's possible to start on Hard, we highly recommend two playthroughs. The reason is that not only is Hard mode rather difficult, but you'll need to avoid dying or restarting the first four chapters. So unless you're an absolute wiz at video games, we recommend starting your playthrough on either Easy or Medium, in order to get better oriented with the game and levels.
During your first playthrough, you'll want to collect all the Servo Skulls to unlock the Librarian Of Macragge trophy. Check out the collectible guides under our Links tab for help with that. Also, focus on getting all the kill-related trophies, as well.
Once that's finished, and if you took our advice, you can start your second playthrough on Hard, in order to unlock the None Can Stand Before You trophy. In addition, you'll need to complete Chapters 1-4 without dying, quitting, or reloading a checkpoint, in order to get The Emperor Protects trophy. Check out the video demonstration under our Links tab if you're struggling with this one. Also, you can use this opportunity to mop-up any kill-related trophies you're still missing, as well as your overall kill count.
After that, you can move onto the multiplayer, to which you'll need an online pass in order to reach beyond Level 5. If you're looking for a boosting buddy, check out the forums under our Links tab. These trophies can be boosted in private matches. However, even when boosting, the Keeper Of The Armory will still take a fair bit of time, in order to collect all the weapon challenges.
Once all the online trophies are done, you can turn your attention back to the offline trophies still remaining. Most likely, True Son Of The Emperor will be your last trophy, as you'll need a total of 40,000 kills.
