Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising Review

  • Excerpt: It is a problem that has befuddled RTS developers for years: how do you create a compelling single-player campaign that's more than just a glorified multiplayer training manual? So many games, even now, don't even bother to try. Relic Entertainment, with standalone Dawn of War II expansion Chaos Rising, has dared to, and the result is perhaps the best effort yet. When it comes to daring to try, Relic has form.

Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising

Game Boyz
24 October 2010
  • Excerpt: The original Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II was a pretty solid game, playing like a combination RTS/RPG with fast action and lots of variety. It had a fairly long campaign which with lots of side-missions to keep one busy. THQ has recently released an expansion of sorts entitled Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising. One of the most significant detractors from the original is the seemingly short campaign which really just serves as a primer for multiplayer.

  • Excerpt: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising is a standalone expansion for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II, meaning that you do not need to own the original game to install and play it. If you do have the original, then you can import your squads from that game and hit the new campaign with some old friends. If you don't, then you'll be given beefed-up versions of those squads and will be able to jump into Chaos Rising's campaign without any trouble.

  • Excerpt: Get any gamers in a room and they’ll start looking for common ground.  Usually this begins with a discussion of finding shared experiences with classic gaming moments.  One of those gaming experiences is often Warhammer.  For many gamers the Warhammer games (there are several) are a gateway game that lead them to more and richer gaming experiences.

Dawn of War II – Chaos Rising

  • Excerpt: So, after defeating horde upon horde of alien horrors collectively known as ‘The Great Devourer’, you’d think the old Blood Ravens Space Marines would be in line for some rest and relaxation, but no – these guys absolutely love an intergalactic moral crusade. The Blood Raven’s primary enemy this time around is the titular demonic force of Chaos, who have returned from the Warp and who may or may not be engaging in some kind of rising-based activities.

  • Excerpt: True to Relic's style, there's no base building in Chaos Rising, the first retail expansion for Dawn of War II; it's all front line combat and non-stop action. Picking up where the Dawn of War II campaign left off, the expansion introduces new units for multiplayer, a powerful new ally in single-player, and it provides the opportunity to take your bad-ass Blood Ravens in a sinful new direction.

  • Summary: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising picks up more or less where Dawn of War II left off, and introduces a touch of Chaos to the already impressive and varied RTS/RPG hybid gameplay. New maps, new units, a raised level cap and a dark turn to the already foreboding storyline are all on offer in this expansion.
  • Pros: Solid new story and characters, Good variation in maps and missions, Corruption makes the series feel even more like classic Warhammer
  • Cons: Short solo campaign, Late-game can be quite demanding, Corruption affects your forces based on some odd choices
