A Solid Hulk!
Developed by Hoplite Research/Full Control/Plunge Interactive and published by Hoplite Research Games, Space Hulk is a unique strategy title that will keep you on the edge of your seat, but is it worth its steep price? That's a judgement call and here's why:
First of all the gameplay is standard strategy genre fare nothing too special, you move your characters on a grid map, give them commands, etc. However it's all fairly solid. The problem is, that there isn't all that much content to be had in the game, which is a serious issue with such an expensive eShop title. The controls are solid and very intuitive thankfully.
The main draw of this game is the use of the Gamepad which is used as a first-person camera or a map depending on the situation which will allow you to see things that you can't with the third-person view on the TV screen! This is one of the most brilliant uses of the Gamepad that we've seen from any developer and is the reason why we don't give this game a merely average score!
Space Hulk has amazing visuals for an eShop title, the video cutscenes are definitely very impressive. The character models and locations are incredibly detailed as well, though there isn't much variety which does hurt the impressiveness of the visuals a bit. The audio is at times very ambient and fits the mood of the game very well!
With solid controls, excellent use of the Gamepad and a superb audio-visual presentation, Space Hulk for the Wii U eShop can be an excellent game at times, however average gameplay, lack of content, and its rather expensive price tag seriously hurt this game's score, nonetheless we still feel that Space Hulk deserves a solid recommendation!
Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10
