Despite the bugs and sometimes frustrating RNG, this is a very addicting game.

I haven’t had this sort of co-op fun since Payday: The Heist and Left 4 Dead 2. While I owned the first game, I didn’t play very much of it, certainly not even half the content. From what I remember of the crafting and gear systems in the first game, at least it’s improved quite a bit here. The howling hordes of Chaos (and their damn spawn!) and multiple career options for each character are also a welcome addition to flesh out the Warhammer atmosphere. I may never be Gotrek, but at least I can jump into the fray with dual axes, laughing maniacally.
Public matchmaking is quite the gamble. 85% of the damage you’ll take (if you’re a decent player) are mostly because the people standing beside you would rather just keep clicking LMB than block and push during a horde or stagger elites. The meta is also super real in this game, unfortunately. Watch yourself well with pyromancers or waystalkers around, they don’t seem to realize they have melee weapons. The Warhammer team really did an amazing job with the melee attacks in this game. I have never delivered such a satisfying blow to the head before this game. There is definitely nothing better than feeling the blow you have just delivered, but it isn’t only the melee that is well done in this game. The whole gameplay and fightings scheme is easy to use and straightforward.

The game has stunning visuals, the diversity of colors and if you have a graphics card the can handle the game, I highly recommend you try it. The diversity and large choice of career paths is so much fun. There are so many options to chose from, and the best part is that no matter what kind of gamer you are, you will quickly get sucked into the Warhammer world.
