4 out of 5 eggsThis game is definitely good

Pros: Campaign tells a compelling story.
Addictive Multiplayer (deep customization options allows you create a truly unique looking character).
Extremely fun weapons to utilize.
An insane amount of blood, EVERYWHERE!

Cons: Only two multiplayer modes available (third one will be available through DLC).
Not many maps available.
Campaign is fairly short.

Other Thoughts: This is coming from a Warhammer 40K fan, I picked up Space Marine on pre-order. This game has not left my PS3 since I first received it through Newegg. This has easily become one of my most favorite games, and look forward to future DLC and sequels!

2 out of 5 eggsCould have been great!

Pros: Single Player campaign. Pretty compelling story that keeps you interested.
Multi-Player classes are well balanced.
Weapons/Armour unlocks and challenges are obtainable and give you something to play for.
The customization available is great! Almost limitless possibilities. Can customize both Space Marine and Chaos. Have five slots each per race, so to play with.
Graphics are really great! Very good attention to detail.

Cons: Campaign could have been longer.
If you are a fan of the 40k Universe some parts of the game (don't want to give it away and has no real bearing on the game) don't really gell at times.
The big problem is the peer to peer system that THQ and Relic have chosen to use. When they work together you can almost guarantee there will be network issues and this game is no exception (if you ever played Company of Heroes or Darksiders you already know this). Probably the worst multi-player setup I have ever seen. Sometimes waiting in the HOURS to play in matches.
Only two multi-player modes to date (more to come I hear) with only a hand full of maps each.
Matches are too quick for the amount of time you have to wait to play.
Hard to get friends into matches on the invite system and even harder to get into a game when you create a lobby with them to look for one.
Only one minute between matches and it takes almost half that to open the customizer to make adjustments.

Other Thoughts: This game should have been one of the top 5 games to come out this year. It had almost everything right in single player and gave the player a really good feel for the 40k Universe. I gave this game a low score only due to the huge short comings in the multi-player part of the game. The campaign of normal took me about 6 hours. If that was longer and the multi-player actually worked, it would have gotten five eggs from me. But, as usual with THQ and Relic, they fell short of that front. I am actually going to return the game for something else. I get too frustrated waiting in the lobby room (you can hear other people from time to time, but you can't see them). If I didn't wait in the lobby "looking for a game" as long as I did actually playing the multi-player aspect I would consider keeping it. I will probably repurchase this game when everything is worked out. Until then......
