CheatCC says - We recently got a chance to go hands-on with Warhammer: 40,000: Space Marine, the third-person shooter based around the Warhammer 40K table-top universe. However, before we could put thumbs to joystick, we were treated to a presentation by Raphael van Lierop, the game's director. In this presentation, we were introduced to Warhammer lore and basically given a "101"-style course about the development of the game and the universe in which it is set. However, what struck me most about the presentation was how directly similarities to the Gears of War series were addressed. Being a complete newbie to the Warhammer franchise, I didn't really understand why this comparison was even being made. However, with a "this is not Gears" mindset, I sat down and started playing.
