    Does it provide individual keys? I am really only interested in the technomancer (already have ICY) and would rather give away the rest.

    Didn't know it was on Steam.

    Never played Eternam but it sure looks... interesting.

    Pushover is a neat little puzzler, Mystical is a slow-ass SHMUP, Sleepwalker is a kid-kicking platformer, Bubble Ghost has a novel gameplay element, Drakkhen is pants, Elf is interesting and Eternam even more so.

    The Great Escape and Where Time Stood Still both use the same engine, and can be described as proto-survival horror games, especially the latter.

    Great value for a buck, but I agree with MotherMachinae, I'd rather have them on GOG.

    SPACE MARINE (the Relic game) can currently be gotten for free by subscribing to the HumbleBundle newsletter. https://www.humblebundle.com/store/warhammer-40000-space-marine

    ++++ Fun combat mechanics (you need to constantly switch between melee and ranged but it's SUPER fluid because the melee attacks (fast, heavy) are two separate buttons which are separate from the shooting button and aim button. Obviously not a new mechanic, but in Space Marine you can and need to be using your chainsword and your bolter. For example giving yourself some breathing room via knockbacks or hit-and-run attrition against the swarm of Sluggas on your ass, and when you have that short breathing room you can finally snap some shots at the Shootas, or mow down a Rokkit Boy. That "break" is very short so the melee/ranged non-switching switching is really important.

    ++ Orks are enjoyably hard to handle. You get rushed by Sluggaboyz and Skarboyz, there are Shootas firing aimlessly at you, which means you shoot/evade/hit-and-run melee/etc. Which isn't that bad because of how the controls are handled. But it does take concentration, which means you have no concentration left to deal with the Rokkitboyz. And then there are the Nob(z) smashing around. Oh and Bomb Squigz.

    -- Halfway through, you switch to fighting Chaos. Chaos is too fucking boring to fight. It's not that they're any easier or harder to fight one-on-one. It's the lack of variation that sucks. Most of the chosen Chaos (and CSM) units are static units. Corrupt IG who just sit there in the open flashing you. For CSM, there is like only one melee enemy (seriously); even worse, most of the ranged CSM are Havocs, very slow (or not) moving, HP sponge enemies. Small groups of Chaos Daemons will teleport to you and are quite deadly, but Orkz are scarier (and require a lot of hit-and-run) because they come in like a Tide of combined arms. Chaos doesn't do combined arms lol.

    -- Really shitty environment design. Not in terms of combat encounter level design, but in terms of navigating it is painful. Everything looks the same. Everything looks the same. This doesn't matter when I'm in combat (with Orkz) but traveling between fights is not fun at all.
    ---- QTE final fight in the game. After a whole game of no QTEs. Ugh.

    Conclusion: It is worth $0.

    I'm not sure if or how to recommend this game (except to Smurf fanboyz). Because fighting Orkz is great. Fighting Chaos is just plain boring. I recommend playing half the game if it not be free right now, and by extension it's maybe worth at sale of 50% or 33% of current retail price ($30). My intuition says it's worth $10 lol. For a 40k fanboy I'd recommend it if it were priced $15-$20. The first half of the game really is worth it.

    Edit: Seriously, though, all they'd need for the sequel is better content and encounter design. The mechanics are perfect, I wouldn't do anything besides change in equipment selection. And more realistic Bolters.

    BTW if you want a review of the old FPS Warhammer 40k Fire Warrior, just switch out all references to the Space Marine game in the above post with references to the Fire Warrior game... Presto! Instant Review!

    Yeah, no. It's not a shooter.

    The engine is based on Relic's Darksiders engine. It has melee combos. It's a hack & slash shooter hybrid or whatever you'd want to call it.

    The co-op Exterminatus mode was great fun and where I spent much of my time playing that game. And the PvP multiplayer wasn't halfbad either.
