Warhammer 40,000: Battlesector is turn-based and about space marines, which means it’ll rile up those who want more 40K games to be real-time and action-packed, as well as those who are sick of every 40K game being about space marines. Thing is, the last 18 months have given us games about the setting’s bounty hunters, giant robots, punk gangs, fighter planes, and fighter planes but with orks. Thank Games Workshop’s free-and-easy licensing for the variety, which is why I’m fine with Battlesector reprising one of the more classic themes.
