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. You can select a "leader" unit for some of the units, like the techmarine, apothecary or the force commander. Each one has special powers they can call upon in the game.
Summary: it takes about half a day to download any game from amazon, their for the price shouldnt be the same as the retail verison. when the retail verison downloads alot faster and you have a physical copy of it to sell when done playing. lower the price of this download to atlest $15 so its fair for everybody and most people can be fine with the long download for the price.
Summary: In the middle of a frustrating experience... You download 8 GB through Amazon, run the installer and expect it to work. Does that happen? No... All it does is open a window in Steam asking for the CD-Key and then Steam promptly begins downloading the entire game. Does the 8 GB from Amazon do anything? Who f****** knows because it seems to do absolutely nothing! Then the piss of it is that the download from steam (the entire game AGAIN) is only 4 GB.
Summary: As is usual with THQ, a yearly expansion to one of PC Gaming's best all-around RTS games has been released, but this time with mixed results. 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...this time inverting the formula to 70% RTS, 30% RPG.
Conclusion: Awesome game. Lord General added to last stand, who is pretty fun, and a new Last Stand map, which is sweet. Great campaign, loads of fun and great story. However, each race plays the same story with different vocals and different reasoning behind each fight, which seems a little cheap to me. When I see 6 playable campaigns, I expect them to be slightly different.
Summary: Das Spiel DoW Retribution ist an sich okay, ABER an die beiden Vorgänger kommt es nicht heran und es lässt zu viele Lücken in der Story offen. Chaos Rising war vom Ende her nämlich offen was die Story angeht und in keiner der 6 Kampagnen wird an dieses Ende angeknüpft. Was das Gameplay angeht ja es ist eindeutig ausbaufähig und nicht vergleichbar mit den beiden Vorgängern.
Summary: An sich eine gelungene Fortsetzung von Dawn of War II, aber wenn sechs verschiedene Völker mit jeweils eigener Kampagne angekündigt werden, hinterlässt sechs Mal dieselbe Folge von Missionen mit unterschiedlichen Charakteren schon einen sehr schalen Nachgeschmack.
