Matt Jay: "There’s a word that’s stuck out in most reviews of Warhammer 40K: Space Marine. That word is “uneventful”. We’re not sure that’s an apt word at all. Plenty happens in Space Marine, and it was able to hold our attention all the way through to the end. It’s true that the gameplay in Space Marine doesn’t quite evolve as much as we’d like it to, though. What you’re doing at the beginning of the game is very similar to what you’re doing toward the end. Does that make this a bad game? Not necessarily. Do other elements make it a bad game, though? "
