Warhammer 40K: Chaos Gate – Daemonhunters is an excellent XCOM-like and one of the best 40K games since Dawn of War II.

A brutal but graceful and comprehensible mix of ideas from Warhammer, XCOM and Gears Tactics.

While there’s enough tactical depth and customization to sustain a playthrough, much of Daemonhunters’ battles feel like vehicles for getting across its great story, and not the other way around. For many, XCOM is as much about the long journey — failures and do-overs included — as it is the destination. And while I don’t think Daemonhunters offers that same kind of obsessive replayability, it does lay a crunchy, thrilling tactical base for its brazen aesthetic and brilliant story to tread upon.
