  • Summary: Retribution adds variety to the Dawn of War II games but is it enough?
  • Pros: Ability to play as six diverse races; combat is intense and action packed as ever; the Imperial Guard is quite a game changer in multiplayer; new Last Stand arena is hard as hell.
  • Cons: Levels are reused in their entirety in single player campaign; campaign missions grow repetitive; slightly muddled narrative from first two games.

  • Conclusion: Retribution is a solid stand alone expansion that I would have no problem paying $50 for... and it retails for $30.

Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War II – Retribution (PC)

  • Excerpt: Retribution is the third game in the Dawn of War 2 saga. It is the second standalone expansion and, as per all Relic Entertainments previous efforts, this one reeks of quality. Unlike most expansions these days, Retribution is a standalone product, so when you fork out R300 for an expansion you actually get much more than just an expansion pack – you get a great game all on its own.

(PC Review) Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution

The Entertainment Depot
4 April 2011
  • Summary: For all Retribution doesn’t even attempt to fix, it tweaks, adjusts, and adds so much to the core that the system is still exciting and addictive. The campaigns might not be terribly different and are fairly linear, but they wrap up the storylines nicely and do a good job of getting the player acquainted with the factions for multiplayer.

  • Pros: Great feel to it, Upgrades all balanced, Way more stuff than DoW2

Six campaigns, one new race, dozens of upgrades and unlockables... and all for just $30. Win

  • Conclusion: Dawn of War II - Retribution is not a genre-beater; it has its issues. But none of its niggles stop it from being a great RTS romp. It still offers that unique Dawn of War II experience, deep strategy, interesting (although repetitive) missions and is one hefty standalone package for the $30 asking price.
  • Pros: More intense battles, Use of all races, Value for money

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Retribution Review

GamerNode
14 March 2011
  • Excerpt: Dawn of War II has made a name for itself as being the unorthodox RTS game. Instead of focusing on base building and following your way up the tech tree like standard RTS games, Dawn of War II focuses on unit-specific tactics like cover, unit facing, and hero powers, and combines that focus with role-playing tropes such as experience and equipment.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Retribution

Game Over Online
14 March 2011
  • Excerpt: When I first tried out the Dawn of War 2 demo a few years ago, my expectations were low. I knew next to nothing about the franchise, thinking of Warhammer as the alternative to Dungeons and Dragons. In looking at the screenshots, the images of guys in fat red metal suits looked pretty silly. But boredom prevails sometimes (the same reason Hollywood is still making money) and I booted up the demo. I was an instant fan.
