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.

Dawn of War II – Chaos Rising

Thunderbolt Games
16 April 2010
  • 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.

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

G4
1 April 2010
  • 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

  • Conclusion: Online hasn’t received such a significant change – some new maps and characters for Dawn of War II’s original four races – though it never needed much tinkering to begin with. If your mouse handling skills are keen enough to survive in the frantic online domination mode, however, the ability to play as Chaos will probably be more than enough to secure an investment. They were sorely missed from the original.

  • Summary: Resist Chaos and fight back the Warp in Chaos Rising.
  • Pros: Compelling Corruption mechanic; new heroes in Last Stand; new Chaos Marines race to play as in skirmishes; original game not required to play.
  • Cons: The single-player game is more linear than the original game; not enough new characters in the campaign; new Chaos Marines race might seem to similar to Space Marines for some.

Empire Online
4 September 2010
  • Summary: Relic's standalone sequel to RTS hit Dawn of War II has landed with a resounding thud and brings with it more of the same awesome close-quarters carnage that you've come to know and love. Those looking forward to harvesting resources, building weapons factories and generally poncing around at your leisure need not apply.
