I bought Fire Warrior the other day, since I'm a big Warhammer 40k fan. I read some reviews that said it wasn't that good, but I thought I'd give it a go anyway. Turns out, they were right.
First off, running the game install didn't actually install the game properly. Well, it might have, but since I got a goofy DirectX error I couldn't be sure. The game supposedly installs some sort of managed directX component for MS .NET. I had to find the install on the CD and run it manually though. Granted, that's more of a MS problem then THQ's issue, but still, it's pretty annoying when you get an error message that says you have to reinstall the game, yet re-installing does nothing to fix the problem.
There's very few options for game setup, once it does run. The control options don't recognize the third or fourth mouse buttons, which is minor, but irritating. The grahpics choices are non-existant. I can change the resolution, and that's pretty much it. no gamma control, no nothing. You can change "graphics quality" from high to low, but I'm not sure what that does.
Gameplay is pretty average at best. You get to carry 2 weapons only, like HALO, which I personally really like.
The enemy AI consists of running towards you while shooting, so don't go looking for a big tactical shootout.
I really haven't played to much yet, so maybe it'll get better, but so far I'm not terribly impressed.
