WarHammer 40,000: Kill Team Review
Game Name: WarHammer 40,000: Kill Team
Platforms: Xbox 360, PS3
Publisher(s): THQ
Developer(s): Juice Games Ltd
Genre(s): Action, Adventure
Release Date: July 13, 2011
ESRB Rating: T

THQ has release its Arcade version of Warhammer 40,000 before the disc-based game hit shelves in September. The game is a top down third-person fast paced shooter & hack and slash style of play with a few twists as well.


In this arcade-style dual-joystick shooter set in the series of the Warhammer 40,000 universe players will play single player or as a team of Space Marines. The story revolves around the Space Marines assault on an Ork Kroozer headed towards an Imperial Forge World in order to prevent the Orks from beginning a full-scale war.




The game features up to two player, same-screen co-op and allows players to choose from four different classes: the Sternguard Veteran, Techmarine, Vanguard Veteran and Librarian. Each class will have its own unique skills and abilities. Each class has a special ability that can be activated and keep being used after a “cool-down” period by using the “LB” button. Players will also be able to choose from six mission or chapters Space Marine chapters to play the game as. The game will also features boss battles against some of the Warhammer 40,000 universes’ more powerful enemies and town of enemies for you to take down 10 or more at a time.



As a nice added bonus for us fans as if the game itself isn’t enough the game also features a unlock for the disc based game, one you complete the first level you get the power sword for use in the multiplayer components of the upcoming Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine. As a fan of little bonus’ and such we find this to be a treat to us fans of the series and also helps with moving Warhammer 40,000 Kill Team for THQ.



Warhammer 40K Kill Team uses the duel sticks for combat as well as the button mashing technique. The right analoge stick is used for firing your weapon and aiming while the left to move your character. Kill Team also has multiple weapon, bonus add-ons and shield upgrades to go into six iconic Space Marine chapters to select from.



The fact that THQ and Juice Games Ltd lacked in the game is online, the game does feature co-op but not online. If it did have online Multi-Player it would bring it to a whole new level. The graphics are amazing for a arcade game download and is wonderfully put together, as in when you kill the last enemy at that moment you get a slow motion scene that zooms in so you can see all the glorious detail that Juice Games Ltd has put into the game with their sweat and hard work.



For only 800 MSP and the exclusive bonus’ the game offers, Kill Team is a must-play for fans of Warhammer® 40,000 series and franchise. The game features multiple play troughs with chances to upgrade different classes and abilities and try different classes as well as go through the game with a friend and destroy some Ork!

Game 2 Gamer’s Final Score 4 / 5
Frustration Level   


  1. Da_Koz says:

    It feels like another decent rpg action/adventure game like dead nation, but has the creativity and appeal like gauntlet did back in the days. In fact i couldn’t stop thinking about gauntlet while playing this game.

  2. Da_Koz says:

    although i only played the demo

  3. Wuvein says:

    Looks like a lot of fun and agree being able to unlock stuff in the full game is a plus as long as its not a chore to do (Red Faction Battlegrounds). Even with out online still think I would enjoy this one.


  4. link222 says:

    wow is very tempting but i dont have points for buy XD , Good review

  5. dikebog says:

    Sounds like a great game to play every once in a while until the main one comes out. The whole no-online thing is a bit of a bummer, but I figure there’s more than anybody should be expecting in this to begin with. Sounds great.

  6. VDH says:

    I wish it had online co-op too, good thing I can play it with my brother in splitsreen mode.
    It really seems a good game. I’m going to download the demo to try it.

  7. Disco_box says:

    Well I’m convinced, this looks rather decent. Agree with the graphics, it looks incredibly good for an XBLA title. I am all for these XBLA prologue releases for full games (Like DR2).

    Essentially it’s a paid demo, but that’s a good thing as your getting a proper product.

  8. montow says:

    this looks like a game i definitely want to try out

  9. Cody says:

    The demo was pretty fun and I love the look of the game. I wish I had a point card.

  10. Cody says:

    By the way, good review gamer 2 gamer

  11. Cool screenies and as always, great review 😉

    Checking out the demo ATM!!

  12. Bubs says:

    This game looks the biz can’t wait to try it out.

    Nice review and good comments.

    Keep up the good work guys.

  13. So, I checked out the demo and it was pretty damn fun. I can see it getting repetitive though so I think the co-op would probably be its strong point, but as as G2G pointed out, the offline only co-op is the downside to that. In a gaming world and age where online means a lot, developers need to explore this area of gaming and take advantage of it to give fans a better experience.

    Apart from that, the demo was such a teaser, like all others and it sort of left me wanting to find out more. 🙁

  14. Jokerzwild says:

    it has a cool look, when I saw the Space Marine from the E3 coverage I thought it was a new Fallout armor

  15. Fartzmcgeezats says:

    The demo was great, I really want to get my hands on the full thing and take down those two huge orcs and try some of the other characters would be fun. I wish the game had CO-OP, but Gamer 2 Gamer already pretty much pointed that out along with these people. Although its a hack and slash its really fun and is worth the buy.
