I don't know where you look, but on amazon.com and ebay you can found it easily under $10 with shipping (mostly for second hand games, but even some new can be found)

Game is pretty short, and old looking, but some of its features are nice (infantry carried burst cannon !)

I bought my copy "used" on Amazon.com for ~$5. Bear in mind, though... I think I paid too much for it. It is a really, really terrible game. (The book is much better, per usual)

Remember Lasguns being more powerful than Pulse Carbines? Ah, good times. Nevermind the rather simplistic gameplay and storyline...

Honestly? I'd recommend to avoid it and save your money.

From terrible fluff idiocracy of afire warrior killing marines with his bonding knife (that thing isn't even a weapon, khorne possession or not, no way to penetrates power armor!)

To gaming logic of guns arbiterally changing power levels (burst cannon for example is the weakest gun in the game some levels, and the strongest in others)



Its a poorly made game, in every aspect of it.

I still play it fairly often actually. I enjoy it though I will agree it is a terrible game. But I think that's part of what makes it enjoyable to me. So no judgement from me if you want it haha. Plus you get to feel like such an awesome lone Firewarrior taking on space marines by yourself! :P

I'm actually stuck on the level where you enter the warp... the chaos space marines all have some sort of rocket launchers that make it near impossible to hide from them, and the rail rifle takes 2 head shots to kill them -_- . And ammo is way too limited lol.

And amazon and ebay are pretty much the only suggestion I can make for your problem as well. :?

I certainly think every tau fan should play at least some of it...just because its a game about being a firewarrior. Yes, its a terrible game with terrible mechanics. Yes, in some places the fluff is clearly wrong. BUT it is probably the only game GW will ever make with the tau as a playable race, so I say go enjoy it for as long as you can. I've never actually beaten the thing, but I'm glad I played the first few levels. :D

yeah I havn't played since I borrowed it from a video store for the PS2 and from memory it was fun as hell! if it's isn't available on a service like steam or another service provider I can download to my pc I might just have to give it a miss since by the time it'll arrive from amazon my crippling hit of nostalgia will most likely be over.

thanks for the feed back crew.

Sorry I know this is tad old but I have something that may be considered valid.

I cant seem to find it immediately but I remember seeing a mod for the game Arma 2 that gave you the ability to play a handful of GW races. Obviously renamed and altered enough to avoid legal issues. The Tau on there had a really interesting look and feel. Not sure if it's still around but it might suit to give those of us video gamers our Tau fix! Good hunting
