Control Command Escape Reviews Space Hulk
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

Control Command Escape has posted a new review of Full Control's recently released Space Hulk. Based on the best-selling board game and set in the Warhammer 40,000 universe, Space Hulk is a 3D digital turn based strategy game that recreates "the classic claustrophobic board game experience."

Space Hulk then, is based on a very small corner of the universe. A Space Hulk is a derelict space craft (or collection of derelict space crafts). In the setting of the game, you control a squad of Space Marines (heavily armed and armoured genetically-modified super-soldiers) investigating a Space Hulk floating through deep space. Itís also home to a swarm of Genestealers though, who are a group of hive-mind creatures that are like a cross between the Zerg and Alien.

You must lead your squad through a series of missions, each time coming up against the Genestealers, trying to complete an objective (get everyone to a certain place, kill X number of enemies, and so on). The game takes place on a grid-based map, defined by doors and walls. Doors can be opened and closed (damaged doors can be smashed open, but thereís no way to seal a door yourself), and your marines can move, shoot, go into overwatch, defend, do a bunch of other weapon-related stuff and, er, trade (mission-specific) items with each other. Everything your marine does costs action point. Moving one square forwards will cost you an action point. Moving backwards costs you two action points. Turning costs you an action point. Special abilities like defending or going on overwatch will cost two. Then as you might expect, opening doors, shooting, unjamming your weapon and so on each cost you a point. The game is not very generous with action points either, with each of your squad each getting four points per turn each to spend. The twist then, is you get 1-6 command points per turn, which can be distributed between your squad members as you see fit to add to their pool for that turn.
