Summary: The original DOW2 was vastly different from previous installments of the francise, but DOW2 was an enjoyable game. The followup: Chaos Rising implemented new changes in the game design, and they were welcome and logical, but Retribution is almost entirely different, and truth be told, this is how I wished the original game had been designed. You can play all of the races now, and its just fun. Get it, play it, love it. It's Dawn of War, baby!
Summary: While the present situation of RTS's is divided between casual and hardcore ones, in our case here, we are dealing with a casual RTS witch is amazingly gratifying in a hardcore way. With different modes of having a good multi-player matches, its a good way of having fun with 1 or 2 friends, even though you require to have a few hundred matches before you are able to exploit all of the opponents weaknesses.
Summary: Seems like the whole DoW2 series has been building up to a gaming experience like this. The mechanics are pretty much the same as in prior games, except now you can build additional squads on the field during the single-player campaign, and play as more than just the space marines (the orks that talk like pirates are particularly funny). Best of all, the storyline that's taken place over both DoW 1 and 2 is finally concluded in a fairly neat package.
Summary: I've played many RTS games before and I've to confess I've found the best, DOW series. It's original DOW was super fantastic, had base construction and recruiting armies which I missed in DOW II. But, the squad based game playing has got me into different addiction now. It's so great to use your strategy skills to overcome problems and succeed in the game. Gives your brain a good exercise. It virtually makes you become Sun Tzu as you progress through battles.
Summary: This is an awesome expansion for an awesome game. the story is cool and they added an extra map for last stand. THEY GOT RID OF GAMES FOR WINDOWS LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this is AWESOME!!!!! that is something i really hated about the original game. im really happy they got rid of it. because they didnt ruin the orriginal game and they got rid of GFWL i am giving this game 5 stars.
Summary: The next installment in dawn of war 2 is also the best. You can now pick which race to play in the campaign and a new race is added to the mix over all. Also you can activate this product code on steam if you want, instead of dling it from amazon.
