Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine – pretty much the best Space Marine game ever made – turned 10 years old this week, and to celebrate it received a special Anniversary Edition on PC (thanks, PCGamesN).
Space Marine was developed by Dawn of War and Company of Heroes maker Relic Entertainment for release in 2011 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Relic left its strategy roots behind to create a fun third-person hack-and-slash/shooter hybrid that, while failing to set tills alight for now defunct publisher THQ, went down well among Warhammer 40,000 fans. You play an Ultramarine versus the Orks, with a heavy emphasis on melee (you heal via executions). It’s a bloodfest.
