Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is a tactics game starring the ultimate goth space marines

I started collecting an army of Blood Angels in 1993, so if you take one look at Battlesector and tell me there are too many Warhammer 40,000 videogames about space marines already, I will not care. Because these aren’t any old space marines: these are the warrior-philosophers cursed with a red thirst that drives them to frenzies and death, and they are my special little guys.

In the last few years modern Games Workshop’s profligacy with its license has given us games where you get to be orks, tech-priests, and Necromunda gangs, so we’re due for another turn-based tactics game about shoulderpad fetishists. And it seems to be a competent one. Though I only have access to two missions and some tutorials in this beta, I’m happy to report the models look real nice when you zoom in, the voice actors confidently declaim their nonsense in gloriously macho fashion, and although some of the animations and sound effects seem unfinished, it’s competently assembled and just works. With Warhammer games, that isn’t always a guarantee.

What if war, but too much?
