GameInfo: Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine (also known as WH40k: Space Marine) is a third-person action video game developed by Relic Entertainment and published by THQ.
Space Marine does not feature a cover system. As a Space Marine, you are given enhanced regenerative abilities and an Iron Halo shield. When health gets low, performing executions can allow Titus to get a portion of his health back. You are accompanied by Sidonus and Leandros for most of the missions, though in some instances you will have to go on solo missions. The game features a fury system that, when filled up, allows the player to either slow time for aiming or perform devastating melee attacks.
Your starting weapons include a Combat Knife, and a Bolt Pistol, though the player can acquire other weapons ranging from Plasma Guns and Lascannons to mighty Thunder Hammers.
The game includes a new weapon not featured in the actual table-top game known as the Vengeance Launcher, which can shoot mines.
The main antagonists the player must fight are the Orks and the Forces of Chaos. The Orks are an alien race whose sheer numbers and brutish warriors make a devastating opponent. The Forces of Chaos on the other hand are a far more serious threat who can literally extinguish the life of whole star systems by summoning nearly limitless amounts of horrors that flourish in a parallel universe known as The Warp. Portals conjured by the Traitor Legions (renegade Space Marines) allow the demons to cross over into real-space.
