    This game though short lived and many have moved on was a very fun and enjoyable game. I recently had a friend get me into the lore of warhammer 40k and first offered me to play the Dawn Of War series which I thoroughly enjoyed, and then he let me borrow Space Marine. I loved the games Single player story mode and had a ton of fun with the hack and shoot gameplay that had me carving my way through hordes upon hordes of Orcs. Now I am playing this game on the Xbox 360 so I acknowledge the fact my experience would've been better on the PC as with every game on the PC. However the biggest downside I have come across was how deserted the multiplayer is. I've seen gameplay from a youtuber channel named TimeWarriors who have been playing the game for a long time and they were also saying how balanced and fun some of the game modes were. Now I don't want to make this to long of a post but if you have Space Marine and you got a 360 I would love to play a few matches of exterminates and versus mode and have a blast. If your interested in playing some Warhammer 40k space marine and want someone to play with I'd gladly join. GT JcBxN0waDayz.

    Just don't expect to cut through wave after wave of ork in EC. That type of play will get you killed faster then a grot that gets caught trying to steal an orks teef stash.

    Agreed, its a very good game!
    Exterminatus is my fav game mode. Very intense :)
    Its a shame they didnt build further on this game cus it has alot of potential.
    "Space Marines 2" i would buy without a doubt. On PC tho. Hope some picks it up.

    I've mentioned it before, and through pure coincidence, I was googling "Space Marines 2" on the day the Eternal Crusade was formally announced. Been following ever since.

    Space Marine was very enjoyable, shame the player base was quite low and getting into lobbies was sometimes quite difficult. I only ever managed to get into a DLC/dreadnought assault game once.

    I'm hoping that, because we recently got a confirmation about the creation of DoW III that Relic also gets to develop a Space Marine Sequel. I want to know how the Titus story arc will develop, because they apparently said in an interview way back when that Titus would go rogue (not renegade or chaos corrupted) and create his own space marine chapter. Freaking badass is what I say to that.

    What would be the point of going rogue? Honestly they would get hunted down pretty fast without the resources of a chapter to back them.

    That would be a very stupid story if it actually happened, where the hell is he gonna find the gene-seed for his chapter? Not to mention you just don't go rouge as a SM, this is not freaking Halo. TBH, the story in Space Marine was not very strong to begin with.

    It's just bolter porn power fantasy. It doesn't lend itself well to good wrighting tbh. Story events are just too predictable and marines tend to be kinda bland characters in stories.

    TBH, that's how the Space Marine singleplayer bothered me greatly. That game made me feel like Superman more than SM, the other squad members were as useless as the cops in those 90s action movies, I soloed like 99% of the time. SM are badasses but that's just not how you portray them.
