Not so good to keep me interested.

Summary: The Warhammer 40K universe is built on massive armies fighting across huge battlefields. This game steps back from that to something more like a MOBA, or Battle Arena where you only have a few customized specialists on your team, that must fight against the opponents customized specialists.
Summary: The original game had a lot of choices that the player could make, regarding which squads you would take to battle, how to outfit them, and even which missions you would undertake and which you would ignore.
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: Single player is a fun game, but they could have given more missions and allowed time for more side missions. If the price is inexpensive, buy it for single and you could play multiplayer if you finish quickly and are bored to get more out of the game.
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.
Relic: Please put effort into allowing fans to update maps and Mods

Summary: Relic, I'll buy the game when you find a way to encourage fans to create & share maps and mods. The online presence is pretty boring and broken. Barely anyone is online now when I look for games. None of the metrics and cool achievements are tracked when I comp stomp or play locally with friends.
