We reviewed Deathwing when it came out in December where we were not super impressed with the game’s repetitive combat:

Space Hulk: Deathwing is a sadly boring and uninspiring shooter. A repetitive single player that could have been saved by a strong multiplayer is just lost due to technical issues and the sad fact is that the game simply isn’t good enough.
