  • Summary: The campaign for this expansion is superior gameplay-wise to the original DOW2's, albeit shorter. However it's still the same multiplayer (same awful matchmaking, no base management, etc.) so if you didn't enjoy DOW2 MP you won't like this any better. I love Chaos and all but I still prefer the original DOW because of its base management and faction diversity. Worth picking up if you liked DOW2 but won't win any new fans to the franchise.

  • Summary: Chaos Rising continues where Dawn of War 2 left off but leaves something behind in the process. It still attains the same quality and RTS/RPG-hybrid gameplay and even adds some new twists and turns which keep the game interesting but do cause the game to become slightly repetitive because of its more linear storyline and a lack of new unit types to play with.

  • Summary: The multiplayer is dead and it uses windows live. The campaign is fun but beyond that there's really nothing past that in this game. thank god i bought it on sale!

  • Summary: Absolutely excellent. Fun game play, more fun from the 40k Dawn of War franchise. If you liked the first one, you'll probably love this one. Great story, great acting, fun game play. imaginative universe fully realized and very enjoyable! And best of all, a challenging and climactic ending! Enjoy!

  • Summary: This game holds none of the key elements of the table top game it is based after. The first dawn of war followed close with the elements and properly gave you the real felling of an rts as well as the table top game.

"An essential add-on!"

Richard, Mighty Ape
14 November 2010
  • Summary: The Dawn of War series has continued to “show us how it's done” with their approach to tactical gameplay. The original Dawn of War series redefined large scale army battles by taking away much of the tedious resource gathering components of other RTS titles, but leaving in the meat of the gameplay: strategic control of battlefield objectives, and giant encouters between large numbers of foes.

"Sweet Game"

Paul, Mighty Ape

  • Summary: Im a big Warhammer fan and really enjoyed playing the original Dawn of War series, although I found this one a little bit different it certainly grew on me, I love the idea of being able to corrupt your Space Marines, it gets the thumbs up from me. One word of warning, the game does seem to take a long time to install and update, so be prepared to spend the best part of an hour and possibly longer doing it.

"CHAOS CHAOS CHAOS!"

  • Summary: CHAOS MARINES! It's here, finnaly people get to see the darkness of Space Marines with Chaos Rising. The story is so indepth, when you start playing, you wont want to stop till you complete the story. With the additon of new Hero's and EPIC items, this expasion pack has given the game a new level of entertainment. And mulitplayer Arena style game gives players a new challenge where you fight waves amongst waves of enemies with other players online!

"looks good but we'll see"

  • Summary: the fact that dawn of war 2 was (apparently) a failure doesn't say much for this expansion pack.however dawn of war 2's campaign was one of the best campaigns that i have ever played skirmish maps were neglected BADLY but otherwise it was a great game, sure it was nothing like the original game of dawn of war but it was still good. this expansioni think will have better skirmish maps and gameplay as of the new race to play with.
