Summary

Seriously underrated.

The Good

This game really should be more famous. The graphics are only average, but the storyline, missions, and characters really are quite creative. " Games Workshop's" popular table top game transfers very nicely to the computer with good scenery, a variety of units and enemies, and enough heros to keep you playing. Hidden items that help win battles are in good supply, And the NPCs are always fun to watch. However, probably the best addition is the camera. Like in Warcraft III, you can zoom in on the battle, change camera angle, and so forth.

The Bad

Unfortunately, there is a serious lack of cutscenes. Also the game gets very hard fast. But probably the biggest flaw is that you can only play humans. No Orc or Skaven campaigns here.

The Bottom Line

Despite some flaws, there's a lot to like here. 8/10
