PSP Fanboy review: Warhammer: Battle for Atluma

PSP Fanboy review: Warhammer: Battle for Atluma
When I first heard of Warhammer: Battle for Atluma's pending release on the PSP, I got really excited. I've never played a Warhammer game, but I am a big fan of Magic: The Gathering and have been waiting for a good collectable card game for the PSP for a long time.

Unfortunately, it looks like I may be waiting a little longer for that game.

Now don't get me wrong, Battle for Atluma isn't terrible game, but I don't think it's going to win over many newcomers to the Warhammer universe.

Nerds rejoice - Warhammer screens & video released [Update 1]


You know you're a pretty big nerd when screens of card-based battle games get you hot and sweaty, but I've kept my eye on Warhammer: Battle for Atluma ever since I got wind of its development. But now that I've seen what the game looks like, it just makes me want it all the more.

While it's plain to see Warhammer isn't pushing the PSP to its limits in the graphics department, the cards do show some nice artwork and the game seems straight forward enough.

You better get ready, because the game's coming out Nov. 14. Now I just need to find someone else as nerdy as I am to play some wireless multi-player!

[Update 1: IGN just posted a video revealing how incredibly boring this game looks. You sure you still want this, Chris? - Andrew]

Namco Bandai officially announces Warhammer

Namco Bandai officially announces Warhammer for PSPLast month, we reported that Warhammer would be coming to the PSP, but just recently Namco Bandai has officially announced it plans to ship Warhammer: Battle for Atluma, a card-based battle game, this fall.

"One of the more compelling card-based games to date, Warhammer: Battle for Atluma goes beyond simple player interaction and encourages an inclusive sense of community among players through head-to-head battles, card collecting, trading and strategy sessions," said John Whitmore, Director of Internal/External Development at NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. "This unique dynamic coupled with the strategic, fast-paced nature of the game certainly sets Warhammer: Battle for Atluma apart from other games in its genre."

While the press release didn't offer up any new gameplay information, it did mention the game will be rated "T" for teen, and the title's developer is JV Games, which has most recently developed James Bond 007: Nightfire for the Gameboy Advance.

Warhammer WarCry: Battle for Atluma coming to the PSP

Warhammer WarCry: Battle for Atluma coming to the PSPWhile Namco appears not have struck gold with its most recent title, it may be able to strike it with its newest upcoming game – Warhammer WarCry: Battle for Atluma, which will be the PSP's first card-based battle game.

The game will be based on the Warhammer card game and will give players the option of leading the Grand Alliance or Hordes of Darkness to victory. Allowing players to collect more than 450 cards, 90 different units and the ability to wirelessly connect with a friend to battle it out for each other's cards has me tickled to death with excitement. Warhammer WarCry also allows for the building of custom decks and features an extensive tutorial system for us noobs out there.

I gotta be honest, I'm not too familiar with the Warhammer series; instead I've been more of a Magic: The Gathering kind of guy. But I'm up for any decent card-based battle game on the go, and we won't have too wait long, either, as Warhammer WarCry is set to ship Oct. 17.
