Summary: The Good: Looks decent, good voice acting, lots of powers and abilities The Bad: Took the S out of RTS, not very fun, brutal, messy, just feels half-baked I love RTS games and Warhammer is one of the best out there. Forget the over priced board game stuff the RTS game is where it's really at.
Summary: To sum up all the greatness of the developer's work, this game is absolute first class. BUT, the online Steam platform that must be installed for this game is not welcomed. It does not allow changing of user accounts.
Summary: This will be a short review, as I wanted to just get a couple of points across. While the game ended up being decent, THQ made a mistake in their assumption that squad based tactical gameplay would be a nice addition to the Warhammer 40K universe. Why do I think this? Well, consider one thing.
Summary: DOW2 and it's expansion pack are both fun games that I have spent a lot of time enjoying. The single player campaign is fast paced and full of action, and if the game soley shipped with the single player campaign then it would be getting five stars from me instead of three.
Summary: Gaming hours on this game: 40+ hours Good Replay mode Summary: I have purchased almost every dawn of war RTS. These games get you immersed into the Warhammer 40,000 Universe. I like that with these two installments more and more lore is getting put into the game making it much more realistic yet...
Summary: I couldn't help myself. Dawn of war 2 was such a fun mix of RPG and RTS, that i had to pick up and try the expansion. While overall just as fun as the base game, the expansion had a few bits in it that kinda drug it down for me, if only a bit.
Summary: I have been a fan of these games for years. I wish Amazon had let me know that you need and internet connection to play this game as I play them during down time as I travel. Internet is not always available to me on the road.
Summary: I bought the game for 25 bucks on steam during a 50% off weekend deal. I think the game is worth 25 and happy with it. Though the junkware that comes with it sucks.
Pros: The graphics are pretty well done. Like the first DoW there are lots of kewl looking death animations for melee. There are four different race that are fairly diverse in play style, not ground breaking or anything though. The game is more about unit micro management; there is no really base build...
Cons: You need both Steam and Xbox LIVE accounts to play. Too me this is just added hassle. I already have a steam account I really don't want or need a LIVE account and find the idea of essentially being forced to get one to play multiplayer annoying. I have had problems with not being able to play th...
