It's a good game, very hack and slash, but with tricky components, like gutter runners popping out of no-where and jumping you and your team mates have to get him off or your die so you can't just run around by yourself.

Its very games workshop, they got the feel and look done right. The maps are somewhat linear, like most fps, multiple ways to get to the same choke point, ie usually the objective, or a door you need to blow up. There is a part where you have to go visit a grey mage because his spell is failing, he is trying to protect the city with a enveloping spell. when entering the area around the tower, the layout is the same, but depending on what toon you are the area looks completely different, ie woodelf, its all forest, the fire mage everything is on fire.

Graphics are quite nice even on my old rickety machine, the physics engine is quite well done. Its a melee fps that works quite well, everyone has shooting too but the game is more focused at melee. killing a few rats as they charge at you with a bow/gun then swinging your sword and trying not to get surrounded.

The commentary between the characters (random in game dialogue) is funny, you can tell these guys played warhammer at some point in their lives. The dwarf making fun of the woodelf when your in the forest, or claiming you took his kill when you range snipe a rat he was just about to swing at.

Reminds me of dynasty warriors but better physics, and better melee, its not as god mode as dynasty warriors. You can die quite easily to a swarm of clan rats if your get surrounded as where in dynasty warriors it was only really the other named characters that could do anything to you, they rest were just peons.

was worth the 12 dollars, the sale ends in 2 hours though, it will probably be 75% off during the summer sale.

The only problem is probably maps, not sure how many their are, i've done 8 maps so far and not done act I, there are 3 acts and expansions. There is 5 difficulties for each map so i'm sure its quite repetitive in that sense, but that is all fps.
