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: I am a huge fan of Warhammer 40,000 but this version is horrible and the only way to play the game is online which makes it hard if you do not have high speed internet. Whatever happen to just playing a game you buy instead of having to load the game then download some system from the internet then...
Summary: This game suffers from several different problems. First, steam and games for windows live have done horrible things to games that ended up being better than this one underneath. I can't suggest a game that has such restrictive DRM.

Summary: I loved DoW I. It was awesome. I bought every expansion and played the crap out of them. Even replaying the single player campaign's over and over again in Iraq when I had nothing better to do. This sequel is a supreme disapointment. There is not one aspect of the gameplay that I truly enjoy.
