Andrew Reiner writes: If you’re new to Warhammer, don’t go into this game expecting insight into the expansive universe. The focus is mainly on the mission at hand. While a few cameos are thrown in as nods to longtime fans, little is provided in terms of character backstory, the importance of this battle, or even why mankind hates the orks. I've been a fan of Warhammer 40,000 since I started playing the tabletop miniature game in the early ‘90s. Relic's Dawn of the War series remains the best video game adaptation of this universe, but Space Marine is a close second.
