Space Hulk Ascension Review

Space Hulk Ascension

You may have played the Space Hulk Board game by Games Workshop. If you haven’t you should imagine a floating space ship the size of a city filled with aliens called genestealers. Space marines dressed in space suit armor that worship the emperor travel to these leviathan ships to destroy the genesteelers.

The game is played out in a turn based fashion. There are dice rolls in the background determining the outcome of the battles. In Space Hulk Ascension the focus of the game is computer role playing and character development. This being the case Space Hulk Ascension has no multiplayer at launch and may not get it later. If you want internet multiplayer by Space Hulk not Space Hulk Ascension. You can still play multiplayer on a single computer sharing a mouse. It’s turn based and there is no time limit to make your moves. I find it more enjoyable this way anyway.

Space Hulk Ascension played on normal difficulty  is not an easy game. I have teams die all the time. Once dead a character and his experience is lost to be replaced with a level 1 know nothing. You also have to play on normal difficulty to score any achievements on steam.  A space marine is a bad ass even without leveling his skills. However it stinks to loose any advancement so be very careful on your turns.

Space Hulk Ascension has an incredible feel to it. You can almost feel the dread of launching an experienced team into a new mission you have not played, knowing your going to loose somebody and maybe everyone. The sound and graphics only add to the atmosphere. Shaky shoulder cams with sketchy connections and a sound track that makes you feel like your in a space hulk. I think its a good combination.

The one fault I have found is you can move your space marines by mistake if your not careful. The designers have also removed the undo button in Space Hulk. The genestralers don’t take prisoners either. I have lost entire teams this way. Once one team member goes down it’s not hard to loose more.

Space Hulk Ascension is not an easy game by any means. Playing on normal is required to unlock achievements. I almost never play games on easy, the only exception is for learning a game.

My opinion on Space Hulk Ascension is it’s good enough to recommend a purchase. It’s very atmospheric, turned based, lengthy, and you know it won’t be another cake walk. I have included a lets play by uploaded to youtube by SplatterCatGaming to give you a feel for the game.

Farcry 4 Released

Far Cry 4 has been released and available at most places you purchased games. I really enjoyed Far Cry 3. The graphics and game play was good. The lack of an editor is a short coming on the series. I suppose as these games get more complex to make the editors become less intuitive.

Space Hulk Ascension Developer Diary

Space Hulk Ascension is going to be a reworking of the board game into a new PC game. It will still be turned based but will have more RPG elements. It will have 10 times the content of the original game and should take 50-100 hours to finish.
