Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Winter Assault Review

VideoGamer.com

  • Excerpt: Winter Assault is not an expansion pack. That is to say, those gamers that own Dawn of War should not expect Winter Assault to merely add to the original DoW, but can expect an all new experience. While most expansions pale in comparison to their standalone forefathers, Winter Assault could have been sold as a stand alone product and no one would have complained.

  • Excerpt: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War is a great strategy game. It does a great job of capturing the spirit of the Warhammer 40,000 universe, as well as providing a fast-paced and extremely enjoyable RTS experience. Well, as long as you’re not one of those base-building types, that is. Dawn of War is built for aggressive play and players must move out across the map to capture resource nodes as quickly as possible or face being crushed by the opposition. Enter Winter Assault.

  • Conclusion: around the points. As requisition is the primary resource in the game, this design decision provides the gamer with a very simply but effective way to engage them actively in resource gathering. Gaining control of requisition points is therefore completely integrated into the action oriented gameplay, and the game is always a careful balance of push and pull and action and defense in the pursuit to capture more requisition points.

  • Excerpt: I’ve already written about Warhammer 40,000 's bleak vision: eternal interstellar war, where no side is very sympathetic, and there are forces so incomprehensibly powerful and malicious you’d go insane if you did learn the truth. Imagine then that someone shoved you into a recruiting line, and told you to go fight these forces with little more than a helmet and a rifle. Retreat is punishable by death, by the way. That’s the predicament of the Imperial Guard.

  • Summary: Its a cold day in the lives of the Imperial Guard as Wolf tags along to see if Relic's new Winter Assault is a bloodbath of an expansion or a drip of snow-melt.

  • Conclusion: In the big scheme of things, we can deal with these niggles. Even as an expansion pack, Winter Assault is a completely worthwhile spend for Dawn of War fans. The franchise isn't going away any time soon, so if you like your Warhammer on PC, this is the only option. Relic will be busy with Company of Heroes for some time yet, so don't sit on your hands waiting for DoW 2 any time soon, grab this now.
  • Pros: New Imperial Guard faction no superstar, but very dependable and solid option, Tidy new SP campaign, New units and slight rebalance amongst existing factions
  • Cons: Let us pull the camera back just a little more, Relic, Game/unit logic still needs a little work. Just micromanage better and you'll be golden.
