TLDR: if you would like a game that is like Diablo 3 but Warhammer 40k with some better bits, and is similar to the Dawn of War series (similar, not the same).....this game is for you.
Here's some dot points for you to consider (positive and negative...up to you how you take it):
- Extremely similar to Diablo 3 in style (loot farming, random map generation, socketing, specific classes with customisation through skills and weapons, seasonal character options).
- Reasonably good campaign. Story seems ok, if you're into that sort of stuff.
- Mission generation on random maps.
- Level scaling, with heaps of options to increase difficulty.
- Disparity between characters (some are definitely OP.....Tech Priest?).
- The DLC is not bad, but it's still DLC.
- Pretty maps.
- Quite a deep tech tree for each class and sub-class to consider. Can be challenging to get your head around.......and then suffers a bit from "cookie cutter" outcomes.
- Some classes get a few weapon options, and some get everything. Good and bad?
- Crafting available. Not terrible....maybe a bit more useful than Diablo 3 when you're levelling and also early end-game.
- Not much in the end game area, outside of DLC. "Void Crusade" is a good attempt at providing campaign-level content at end game.
There's probably more, but meh. It's worth the purchase with DLC if on special. Would likely not want to pay full price for everything though. Definitely get this if you want a loot farmer and you like 40k.

In order to make this game much better there is one thing I would recommend to you:
Change the movement to wasd, map your 4 weapon skills to your mouse, auto pickups and f to use stuff.
Now you have a great game.
This a fun Diablo 3 in a Warhammer 40k setting. A bit grindy, yes, but it has lots of different game types and challenges, randomised maps, a big team mission, pvp, as well as a seasonal challenge and recently some new event came out.
I absolutly love the crusader with a flamethrower, I build him in a way that I heal myself while purging the heretic, with insane DoT.
Oh there is also an option to get in cover... but I do not see a reason to cower before the heretics!

How many companies let you pay for DLC with in game money? Huh? How many?

Review from Steam

I've played this game and on and off since release. To be honest the game is currently the best it has ever been. If you own it and haven't played in a while its certainly worth a revisit.
To comment on some things people say;
Server's constantly disconnect you: This isn't true, I've spent many hours without any disconnects. Most people I know who play have never had server connection issues. Maybe if you are on a dial up modem, it might be worth looking at your internet before blaming the game.
DLC aren't worth buying: You can literally earn "FATE" in game to get all of the DLC except the class based one (Prophecy) for FREE. All you have to do is play. It takes about 2-3 days of playing to earn 1200 Fate to buy a DLC addon of your choice. Why buy when you can play to get for free? (Yes some DLC missions are greater than others, just google it)
No content: This is an ARPG with a ton of depth. There are multiple-Meta and multiple-Off Meta builds for each class. There are relics that give functionality that enable new builds. It has about 20+ hours of Fully Voice-acted pure WH40k conversations and scenes. (anyone who says they beat the game in 3 hours is lying) Story is divided into chapters, intel missions and special missions. Its not handed to you, you have to be the inquisitor and investigate.
Game is clunky: By default yes the hotkeys are badly set up. But its like 3 clicks to fully remap your keys to your favored layout. Just cause you have fat fingers, doesn't mean the game is clunky. Remap that shit into a good setup.
Mission Grind: Literally identical to maps in Path of Exile. Anyone who complains about repeat maps at end game literally is not an ARPG fan in general. Grim Dawn resets, Path of Exile Maps, Diablo Rifts. There are about 200 tile sets in this game and maps have "distinct" layouts. This is partially due to the fact that if your on a map that is on a ship it needs to feel like your on a ship.
Loot Loop/XP loop: This is where the game shines. There is crafting of gear, upgrading gear, constant loot drops, and more. Void Missions are the best currently for loot, and there is something satisfying about beating missions above your level for rewards you can't equip yet. That feeling that your build just "shines".
Time sink: No joke, early game leveling is fast. This slows to a crawl near level 60-70. Especially if you know nothing about the game. Read a bit, learn a bit, and soon you are speeding through those levels as well. There are ways to increase level xp by well over 500% if you know how. Level 100 Cap- But you can push mission levels well over that. Satisfying.
Real Cons
-----------------
Low player count for an ARPG. This means that group play/pvp requires you to meet people in game or have friends.
Upgrades can be downgrades. Not all equipment is worth changing to, only to be replaced later with better.
Crafting is expensive.
Repetitive Loop. Its very possible to have a 3 button build that completes maps in 2 mins or less. For some, this gets boring.
Real Pros
---------------
Fully voice acted and convincing story line for Warhammer 40k.
Several dozen builds for each class, build experimentation is satisfying.
All DLC is free except the class ones. Just play the game to unlock them.
Combat is fun and impactful (once you remap your keybinds)
Has Seasons that add new gear, challenges, mechanics, and Cosmetic Reward tiers. (play to unlock)
NO BATTLE PASS!
NO IN YOUR FACE MICRO-TRANSACTIONS!
The Emperor Protects!

Review from Steam

A perfect example of why game development requires more than competency.
The game is good, the design is fine, the art is well done.
But there is no passion in this game, it's a safe execution of a contract.
There are no risks, no inspiration, no labour of love. Just a competent design team fulfilling the brief they were given.
Buy it if you've never played an ARPG, or if you are deeply in love with the 40k universe. but do not expect this to be the game you come back to over and over.

Review from Steam

Minor pre-purchase/play advice.
If you are new to WH40K space marine universe/lore you might want to research a bit into the lore and atleast get a base understanding, else it will probably confuse the heck out of you lol
Little about my personal perspective on arpgs and this game
I'm actually not a huge arpg fan, well the ones from this view perspective. I have a few but this is the only one I have with 1100 hrs invested in. (Been playing since April 24th 2020) I promise even after this review that time will still be increasing.
About classes and builds
I currently have 1 of every class and 3 of the 4 capped at level 100. Lotta build diversity and multiple metas per class and also even sub par builds that still are very interesting and fun to use. That is one of the main reasons I love this game, is the class build diversity and weapon diversity. All classes can use range or melee weapons and even a mix of both at the same time. Classes in some ways can have multiple roles.
Crusader he can be melee 2h warrior or 1h & shield baring tank if you like that raw range crowd control damager he can do that pretty effective also.
Assassin can be laid back in the pack sniper or a quick on the crits up close in your face trickster with time manipulation and hit run tactics.
Psyker this is your mage class cast them wicked chaos spells or become battle mage with sword or a gun do lil of both. Your imagination is your only limiter really.
Tech Priest that you get with the (DLC prophecy) is a minion master, you can choose your weapon be it range or melee also. But most of your offense comes from minions. Your minions also have progression, in the gear department. Tech Priest I would consider a more advanced player class, because you have to work minion gear as much as your own. So might wanna save him till you get atleast 1 level 100 character that way can fund him lol.
On to missions and story.
Story is a one shot thing per char unfortunately, meaning you can't go back and do repeats of it with the same character.
Not a huge deal but even I would love to do it again at level 100 be pretty neat, w/e though no biggie.
After story is complete and at any time outside of story, all missions are randomly generated and technically there is no true end to this game, it only ends when you quit playing it.
I do highly recommend that you get the prophecy expansion, it adds a little more story for the 3 martyr classes to play but the tech priest class gets a bit shafted as it can only play the prophecy story line even if you own martyr.
Just buying it for the class alone is worth it in my opinion. It is one of my most used and loved classes.
(like a necromancer in some ways if you need that deeper detailing)
There is a system called tarot cards these cards give you a bonus and at the same time makes enemy more difficult. Like the saying I use in RL, "caresses you with 1 hand and stabs you with the other" lol. It's a good system as it allows you to set the challenge yourself, risk and reward type system. The game does have 4p Co-Cp and PvP.
You can play all missions including story in Co-Op.
Lets go with technical stuff, updates and bugs
Yes there is bugs, I'm here to give you the 100/100 review as deep and truthful as i can.
Most bugs that exist can be solved by restarting the game. Since I started most of the bugs I encountered has been ironed out. Some still linger but not to the point that it infuriates me or anything. Some I've got used to, don't even notice anymore. The developers are still updating and adding to the game, fixing bugs etc. The game is still very much alive from a developer point of view, the community is fairly small, yet there is plenty of people including myself that stroll the forums, always wanting to help to the best of our ability, knowledge and experience. Sometimes these people take breaks from the game, including myself. Though we usually return even if not actively playing the game just to offer up a helping hand here n there.
Final Thoughts
My personal meta score 90/100
Buy this game and play the sh*t out of it like I have. If you like what my review says, there is a good chance you will like this deep, beautiful WH40K game, it is a rough edged work of art. I still enjoy this game as much as I did the day I started playing it, to be straight about it. I actually like it more today then I did as a newbie. That says alot, I can't say I own many games I still love to play after 500hrs much less 1100 hours and still counting. I play completely as a loner 120% solo player. (I prefer to). I could give more major positivity and lil more minor negativity from my review, some features and bugs I did skip but I feel the review is becoming so long most might not want to read it. I could understand that entirely.
Hope you enjoyed my review. Take care and happy gaming!

DIablo 40k, in the Emperor's name. This game is great fun, runs smooth. You can see that the developer has great love for the game, still providing constant updates and fixes for even smoother gameplay. One of the (much) better Warhammer 40k games. Recommended for action RPG fans.
