Just wondering what the whole community thinks about this. Don't get me wrong, I want to love this game and spend months/years playing, but I'm a little let down. So far from what I've seen, it looks just like Space Marine. In the pre-alpha gameplay footage, all they showed off is Assault Marines being OP and jumping around everywhere. I'm going to go through a couple things just to state where I stand right now. First is, will this game get the attention that it needs? As popular as the Warhammer 40k universe is, there are more people that have no idea what this is. They need to make sure the public knows about this game well before release to draw people in. This is my least concerned issue, I just hope they are able to let millions of people know about this game and draw lots of players in even if they are new to this universe. Also, how are Space Marines NOT going to be flooded with people? Everyone is going to want to play them and it's going to be so unbalanced. I can't imagine the same amount of people will be playing Orks and Eldar as there are SM. Then people that haven't bought the game get to play as Orkboyz and get slaughtered in a couple seconds and just act like cattle for everyone else that's playing better roles? I know the point is to make them buy the game, but I don't think that will work. Second...is that this looks like a glorified THQ Space Marine MMO. Seriously, the UI looks pretty awful and similar to SM and the combat looks almost identical. I really wanted an in-depth helmet-looking UI to make it feel awesome with cool servo skulls are something other than what they have. Now I know its pre-alpha, but are they going to get that same UI? It just looks way too plain and cartoony, and I remember seeing that the grenade marker was the almost identical to the one from SM. I'm not sure and I hope they make it better. The combat looks almost exactly the same, and I am planning on doing a side-by-side comparison of the two to see if they just took what Space Marine did and put it in there, because that's what it looks like. They will definitely need to do something with Assault and Raptor squads and give them cooldowns for their jetpacks, or that's all we will see when it comes out. Also, how deep is this combat system? Are you going to have counters, blocks, stuns, grabs, and other things? Or is this going to be SM multiplayer where you get ruined by an Assault Marine because he is close to you and oh well you're fucked? Really want to know more about this if anyone has any information so they can prove me wrong. I guess the last thing is a personal vendetta with the art-style of this game. When I read the books and whatnot I imagine this dark and horrible world where death is everywhere and the Space Marines look like ancient Angels of Death and the Orks are terrifying in countless numbers, but when I look at SM and this footage...it looks almost childish and cartoony to me. Hopefully that's just because it's so early and they make it look rugged with armor scrapes, shrapnel and explosions, ancient buildings, and other things. I hope this doesn't look like Space Marine, because I honestly hated that whole look. Also, I found that in the Dark Angels trailer that they release that when he is walking out of the darkness with his helmet on, you could see a big part of his neck in between the helmet and armor and I almost flipped out because that is a HUGE no-no. But oh well, what are you going to do. I apologize if this seems like I'm just going on a rant and bashing this game. It's not my intention and I want to love this game. I just want to make sure that they are making something original, fresh, and have the feel of this Warhammer world that we all love. I want them to stay true to the lore and I really hope they change the proportions of the Space Marines because they are completely off. And of course it will be sort of similar to Space Marine because it's a third-person shooter also, but that doesn't mean they have to be identical. Thanks for your time guys and if anyone has information or comments, leave them below and discuss!
