Summary: DOW2 - R is good mechanically, which makes it's faults all the more disappointing. I'm just reviewing the game itself from a single-player perspective; there are mods that improve the experience & if you like dow2 for its multiplayer you be satisfied.
The models and maps are beautiful. You can select a "leader" unit for some ...

Summary: This is the only game you will need to buy if you plan on getting into Warhammer 2. This is a stand alone game and contains all the armies, no need to buy warhammer 2 or warhammer 2 chaos rising. The models and maps are beautiful.

Retribution takes the formula that Dawn of War II created...a hybrid game that was roughly 70% Squad-Based RPG and 30% RTS, and retools it yet again..
Summary: Apocalyptic battle, the legendary Warhammer 40k setting, successor to two fantastic games (DoW 2 and Chaos Rising), Eldar on wings and Orcs in Pirate hats. It should be fun, but in reality it just misses the mark for me.
Summary: I am sure that this game is good but I am at a loss as to why I purchased a DVD as all it does it point my internet connection to Steam. Therein lies my problem, I pay for every MB downloaded and so to have to download over 4GB after shelling out for a game makes me want to forget it and take up...
