18. Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach

A simple skirmish in Sanctus Reach

A battle in Sanctus Reach

Not quite a full moon as the Dreadnoughts - led by a wolf, take to the battlefield.

Howling at the moon isn’t required on your mission to guide the Space Wolves to their destiny—saving mankind! In Sanctus Reach, you'll take command of your own army of Space Wolves across epic, 3D, turn-based battles.

Players can blast their enemies across insane types of terrain. Taking refuge among the gnarled, twisted trees across from a felled spaceship, a unit of Space Wolves stand in a vulnerable position. Suddenly, three blasts from behind the remains of a building and each hit shatters the armor of the soldiers. Blood spills as the end of the battle approaches. But this war is just beginning.

Though it’s a tactical game—much like the tabletop game—the animation and graphics make Sanctus Reach one of our favorite games in the 40K universe. The stunning, visual beauty of this game, combined with the fun game play, strategy and extensive 40K lore make this a worthy addition to anyone's gaming library. It's also quite long, with plenty of expansions, so it'll keep you coming back for more and more. Possibly until the end of time.
