"Space Hulk: Tactics" fits the bill if you are either a massive fan of this particular universe or you love strategy games. That's the good news. If you happen to not know anything about the vast backstory of "Warhammer," then you are going to start off this game at a disadvantage, if only because you might not be able to understand with whom and why you are doing battle. Released on October 9, "Space Hulk: Tactics" is now available for the PS4, Xbox One, and PC. For the purposes of this review, I was provided a copy on the PlayStation 4. While I like a lot of the game, I could not, in good faith, give it more than a 3 out of 5. Check out the good, bad, and ugly, as well as the reasons why.

Good: The atmosphere is exactly as claustrophobic as it's supposed to be
