First in a series of games based on the famous Games Workshop miniature battle series, Warhammer Epic 40,000: Final Liberation (WHFL) is a great adaptation of the bleak Warhammer 40,000 universe. Worthy of note is the fact that WHFL marks the first time a game company adapted this intriguing and heavily tested system as is for the PC (EA's two excellent Space Hulk games are action/strategy hybrids of the concept, while Mindscape's also excellent Shadow of the Horned Rat and Dark Omen are RTS titles based on the Warhammer mythos). Leave it to Ken Lightner of Holistic Design, one of my most favorite underdog companies, to recreate a good tabletop system on PC without any intrusive "innovations". The result, as one would expect from the creators of such (underrated) classics as Machiavelli The Prince and Emperor of the Fading Suns, does not disappoint.
A great PC version of the equally underrated board game of the same name from Games Workshop, Hero Quest is an isometric tabletop strategy/RPG game that simplifies RPG statistics without simplifying gameplay. As in the board game, up to 5 players can play the game as wizard, elf, barbarian or dwarf in a quest to banish the evil wizard. Secret doors, traps and treasure abound in this turn-based, mission-based game. Good game in every respect and severely underrated. Those who like this game should also try Space Crusade another Games Workshop boardgame conversion based on the much-improved version of the game engine.
Two more regiments of Skaven warriors just marched into sight. Your cavalry is engaged with a pack of Orcish archers and your infantry has its hands full with the first two Skaven regiments. The Black Avengers are little more than a local militia with no fighting experience--but they are your only reserve force. It's time for their baptism by fire....
Space Crusade is a follow-up of sorts to Gremlin's underrated Hero Quest. Like its predecessor, Space Crusade is an excellent tactical turn-based wargame based on a Games Workshop boardgame, this time the more famous Warhammer 40,000 universe. A ship carrying high-ranking marines have been hijacked by aliens, and it's up to you as commander of 4 veteran marines to save the day. The game can be played from either 2D overhead (useful for planning movement) or 3D perspective for up-close-and-personal view of the aliens.
A fun tactical wargame based on Games Workshop's renown Warhammer 40,000 universe, Space Hulk combines a faithful depiction of the excellent strategic choices of a Warhammer boardgame, including authentic space marines and weapons, with adrenaline-pumping action. The game is played from a first-person perspective, and offers you the ability to control up to 4 marines simultaneously, each with his own 3D view window, through a variety of missions ranging from the straightforward find-and-exterminate to object recovery.
"Dark Omen is primarily a real-time tactical game in which you direct an army of up to ten regiments that each comprise anywhere from one to twenty individual units or so. You control your army at the regimental level, so at the most you have to worry about giving orders to ten entities at any point in time. Like Myth: The Fallen Lords, it's a refreshing change of pace from most of the current crop of RTS games. There's no base-base building or unit manufacturing here - you are left entirely free to contemplate the subtleties of the slaughter. If you like Myth: Fallen Lords (and just for the record, I do), Dark Omen is about the closest you can get right now if you're looking for more.
MASTER THE ART OF WAR: Warhammer: Mark of Chaos is about WAR, focusing on the armies and battles while de-emphasizing the tedious aspects of base and resource management.
