New Review Posted: Warhammer 40K: Fire Warrior

Mike Bracken reviews Warhammer 40K: Fire Warrior, and is brutally frank about its limitations:

"Going into Warhammer 40,000: Fire Warrior was something I did with a fair amount of trepidation. I like first-person shooters (FPS) as much as the next guy, but the idea of taking a table-top and miniatures strategy game like Warhammer and turning it into a run-and-gun fragfest didn't exactly inspire confidence in me. I mean, it's sort of like seeing Monopoly: The Role-Playing Game or Metal Gear Checkers (now with more stealth action!) sitting on the shelf at the local game emporium--it just seems wrong. To developer Kuju's credit, they've done a really nice job of taking the complicated Warhammer universe and translating it to an action game. Yes, many concessions are made in the process (like the fact that players can only be a Tau Warrior instead of any of the game's other factions) but the end result is a solid, albeit painfully traditional, first-person shooter. "
