Warhammer 40,000: Carnage Review
Some games are deep, strategic experiences meant to test you mentally, while others just give you a sword and a gun and send you forth to kill stuff. Warhammer 40,000: Carnage belongs in the latter category, and it does not disappoint one bit in that regard.
Set in Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000 universe and developed by Roadhouse Games, Carnage is aptly named. Instead of a turn-based war game or a real-time strategy game like previous Warhammer 40,000 titles, this app is a side-scrolling, old school run-and-gun game. It might seem like an odd move for a franchise that originated with very tactical war games and RPGs, but this style suits the universe just as well.
If anything, Carnage is the perfect companion to those other games for the hardcore Warhammer 40,000 (or “WH40K”) fan. Even though it is a bit “expensive” as far as iOS games go, the current $7 price is nothing compared to the amount of money that serious WH40K fans have likely spent on all of the figures, rulebooks, and battle terrain boards. It’s even not that expensive compared to other WH40K video games.
