Space Hulk has received mixed to average reviews. Review aggregator Metacritic has estimated an average score of 58 out of 100 based on 22 reviews, with most reviewers citing a lack of polish and a too stringent adherence to the tabletop game rules.[5]

Eurogamer's Dan Whitehead viewed the game as an exercise in nostalgia, faithful to the design of the original board game without innovating in any way, "more awestruck tribute than actual adaptation."[6]

Rob Zacny of IGN said that the game's main problem was that "its designers couldn't let it deviate from or build on the simple rules of a board game experience that lacks tactical depth." It was considered, nevertheless to be "a fine game, a pleasant diversion."[7]
