So, some of you may have noticed that Full Control released the Space Hulk Ascension Edition (Aka. Space Hulk 2.0) recently.

And the reviews from critics and gamers alike are rather favorable: http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/space-hulk-ascension-edition

Indeed, after having played it, i can say that the Ascension Edition is what i personally had hoped for Space Hulk to be from the very start. It adds most, if not all the features that were felt direly lacking in the first Space Hulk game and actually now makes for an expansive and engaging experience.

So, a LOT of work and polishing has gone into turning a pretty basic and anemic game into a title actually worth paying money for.

The only aspect that is still lacking in my opinion is the sound design and overall atmosphere. Full Control seems lacking a good audio designer, who can actually support the decent graphics and presentation with the right sounds to create a dense and dramatic atmosphere that draws you in, ruining a lot of immersion. A problem repeated in JA:F.

So i personally hope, that Full Control will also show as much post release support, care and development for JA:F, then there's a chance that we will actually get the game we always expected here. Because with Space Hulk Ascension Edition they have demonstrated, that they are actually able to produce quite decent games, given the necessary time.

Anyways, if you like the turn based tactics of Space Hulk, but were turned off by the barebones quality and lack of content of the first release, then you can buy this one without a thought and support Full Control financially for further JA:F development.
