Summary: the games in this series were difficult sometimes to get into because of all the passwords and the different groups you need to join up with and getting them straight gameplay is enjoyable but not as epic as the original version of the game which was more of a battle landscape real-time strategy...
Summary: I'm a big fan of Dawn of War and Dawn of War 2. If you are unfamiliar with Dawn of War 2, It is a squad based RTS that focuses on combat rather than base building and resource gathering. I enjoy mixing up strategies by deploying my different squads and leveling them up with different skills.
Summary: a fine continuation of the first Dow2. You can continue the story from the first DoW2 using your old squad mates. Keeping the same equipment and experience (if you completed the first game). Warhammer 40,000 fans will visit some new, but familiar, places.
Summary: For single player, the campaign is a good 10 - 20 hours depending on difficulty. If you liked the original, this is definitely a decent buy. If you don't have the original and are looking for single player, I would suggest you buy the first game because that campaign is about 3-5 times as long.
Summary: Dawn of War II returns with the first of hopefully many expansions a little more than a year after its original release, and the wait has paid off. Most players will be happy to see Chaos Space Marines return, as the initial game felt oddly out of sorts with Chaos missing from the choice of sides.
Summary: Basically just a bunch of new levels, to allow additional playing. The gameplay is essentially the same, and there aren't any real changes to the game mechanics or units. One issue is that it seems to crash more than the original game, but this may be addressed in future patches.
Summary: One caveat first. This is a Windows Live/Steam game, so if you have objections to either of those things then stear clear. That said, I'm going to provide a brief review of the game with scoring not weighted by those factors.
Summary: I like this game. It arrived in good time and in good condition to. It certainly continues the series. I would recommend this to any War-hammer fan. The only thing I say is it could have had more work on it.
