  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.
  • 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...

  • Summary: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising is the first stand-alone expansion to Dawn of War II, 2009's popular real-time strategy/tactical role-playing game based on the Warhammer: 40,000 universe.
  • Pros: Every bit as entertaining as Dawn of War II, Corruption mechanic lets you betray the false emperor, Chaos faction brings new "blood for the blood god", Abundant options for cooperative and competitive play, Cool new heroes reinvigorate Last Stand
  • Cons: Corruption doesn't alter the story until the ending cutscene, Last Stand still limited to one map, Games for Windows Live still clumsy and inconvenient

  • 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.

Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising review

Gameplanet
31 August 2010
  • Excerpt: Chaos Rising, the follow up to Relic's Dawn of War II, charges you with the command of the Blood Ravens and the defence of the sector against the Chaos Space Marines of the Black Legion. So what else is new to the franchise this time around?
  • Pros: Better focused campaign with less repetition. More interesting missions. Story will keep you entertained all the way through. Nice new units, characters and powers. Chaos army is a welcome addition to multiplayer. New maps and gameplay modes. Two new heroes for Last Stand mode.
  • Cons: Campaign is a bit on the short side. Not many side quests. Corruption system takes away some of the better loot if you want to play on the side of good.
