I have a complaint. I'm pretty sure I know the cause of the problem (budget looks different when you're doing a AAA action title than when you're doing a RTS), and it's both forgivable and understandable: the audio is much wholly inferior to the audio in DoW/DoWII. Not so much the DAKKADAKKADAKKA, but the voicework and music (granted, we've certainly not heard all the music). When the orks go WAAAGH near the lift it's...less impressive than when they do so in The Last Stand. More to the point, we've gone from upwards of five hours of context-senstive unit barks (~ fifteen minutes per hero, times three heroes, times three races. Now factor in regular units) in addition to all the campaign voicework to...well, just the campaign voicework. I loved
all the stuff Orks said in DoWII. Here? I barely notice. They have some forgettable stuff about killing more humans and/or space marines, but even their voices just aren't as cool anymore, nevermind what they're actually saying. Captain Titus is so restrained he's, well, boring (contrast with this
). What the hell happened to fury and zeal?
A minor complaint, and doubtless due to budgetary constraints, but disappointing nonetheless after the fantastic work in DoWI/II.
EDIT: Well, someone on another forum is telling me he read somewhere that this is from an earlier build, and the voicework has been redone significantly since there. Hope, I still has it.
Crap why the hell is the UK not allowed the demo(funny how WH40k is a UK IP)!! Website says Worldwide release for Space marine Demo, click on the link and Steam says " This item is unavailable in your region" So if this game requires steam how are we supposed to get the game activated on Steam UK when it has been removed?????????http://www.facepunch.com/threads/1119494-Game-UK-Why-these-guys-are-ruining-your-consumer-experience-on-Steam-in-the-UK
Note what the THQ rep said about GAME exclusivity as well.
