Summary: I don't know why the rating is so low. especially if you have played the first one. Dawn of war 2 is like saying hey we got new equipment and we are starting the series over. The Tyranids are a great edition and the graphics are fenominal. I play all of the warhammer games including the table top game so I am very picky on how thing look in these games but I have no complaints here. keep it up THQ.
Summary: The second Dawn of War is a fantastic game in and of itself, and the expansion pack is a wonderful addition. I have always been a huge fan of the Warhammer 40K universe, and this game does the universe plenty of justice. As an RTS, it's a bit of a departure from standard RTS games, managaing up to 4 specialized squads of space marines in the campaign. Once you get used to the game, and becomes a ton of fun, and i've loved playing it.
Summary: With StarCraft II on the horizon, this epic series will last until then. It's lush graphics and chaos-centered battles ensure some great experiences. It's gameplay is not the best, but it's different. It's not trying to mimic other titles. Plus it's one of the few PC games for Windows Live which lets you connect to your Microsoft Xbox account.
