Summary: I haven't played multiplayer extensively so I can't comment on that aspect. The gameplay is the same as the previous dawn of war 2 games.The story does continue off of the previous Dawn of War 2 games but is not necessary for understanding the game as it just gives background primarily to one faction. All the factions of the story basically do the same thing so there isn't any major difference in playing with them other than who you prefer.
an enjoyable game once you get to play and get past the security

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 game this one is more like a questing game although it is a smooth play once you get into it it is a pain in the disk drive to set it up I recommend this game be bought on steam...
Summary: The single-player campaign is not very good. The missions are the same but for the different races. It is very watered down and bland. I think you might get a new race or something, but hte main draw is gone, which was the great single player RTS/RPG campaign. Multiplayer has probably had some changes, but you'd be hard-pressed to notice them. I certainly don't. Last Stand might have a few new units.
Summary: The Game itself is a fitting addon to the ever expansive Dawn of War 2 Franchise being the 2nd Stand Alone Expansion. The multiplayer is as solid as ever (adding in the IG and I think a few new units) and the Last Stand gamemode is more fun than the previous version imo. The removal of GFWL and using Steamworks really makes the deal for me but the campaign is a bit of a let down.
Summary: I've always been a big WH40k fan and played a lot of the tabletop version as well as many of the video games. DoWII:R pretty much follows the paradigm set up in the prior titles of small additions without changing the core experience much. DoWII:CR was a bit of an exception to that rule but this game brought the series back to it, for better or worse.
Summary: Dawn of War 2 retribution is a good RTS game and a decent addition to the series, However this game doesn't leave a lot of Replay value for the campaign very linear with limited units if you want to play a fun skirmish game I would recommend the Red Alert Series instead of this one.
