Summary: I was thoroughly underwhelmed with this game. From invasive dual layer DRM (Steam and Windows live) to uninspiring game play it fails to impress. You get the game and you have to suffer through STEAM.
Summary: I'll preface this review by stating that I am *somewhat* of a 40K fan; I like the background a good bit, I own some miniatures, and I play the wargame on occasion. I didn't own the original Dawn of War, though I played the demo.
Summary: First of all I do like this game a lot, and will not stop on many positive sides of this game as those have being reviewed by other customers. What makes this merchandise a waste of money is that it requires Steam activation (that is however not the worst part) and what is most annoying it requires...
Summary: Okay, Let me explain something: The multi player aspect of this game can be awesome. Its kinda fun. How ever the single player is insufferable. Its more like a squad based rpg than a RTS. It even has bosses. Why oh why would you put bosses in this game?
Summary: This game was disappointing. It was just a rehash of the first game without the cooler invasion map functions and all the races. The character leveling function feels like they are beta testing a bad MMO.
Not the Dawn of War I've grown to know and love....

Summary: The Dawn of War series has been movie closer and closer to an RPG game rather than a RTS - and this one almost made the full transition. The incredibly small squad cap of only having 4 units per mission did make it more challenging but with it, took out one of the main components that make an RTS so...
Summary: The multiplayer additions are great, but im seething over the addition of the tyranid to last stand.... that could have been done from the beginning. I'm also incredibly sore over the fact that no matter what you do, you are playing Codex Blood Ravens online. I DEMAND to know where my chaplain is.
Summary: I don't understand... why did you try to make the game complicated and then make everything about it stupid? Worst of both worlds... Hopefully an expansion fixes this lame foundation for a game.
Pros: The new graphics are nice... the gameplay has potential...
Cons: Wow, major fail by THQ. This game's gameplay is very, very slow. The units move slow, it takes a long time to kill anything. The cover system is stupid; for example, 2 marines get behind the rock, the other 2 go huddle in front of the rock... seriously? Who would stand in the way of bullets!? The...
Summary: The people over at THQ think that RTS fans of DOW want small battles, half the unit variety and less then half of the playable races. They think that this is better because now during battles you can use "cover" as a factor.
