Summary: This expansion is really awesome. The campaign is really good with many funny dialogs of main characters. New race and many new units + better balance of multiplayer makes this a must buy for everyone who liked Dawn of war.
Summary: I rated the original Dawn of War at 9 so I am rating this one at 8. Everything from the Original is here and all the content is as enjoyable as ever but it doesn't add as much as I expected. The new faction does present new challenges and is very enjoyable to master but outside of the campaign the Imperial Guard is absolutely worthless. In multiplayer it is effective if picked against the I rated the original Dawn of War at 9 so I am rating this one at 8.
Summary: This game is the best expansion for Dawn of War, it lets you play as the imperial guard in multiplayer and skirmish mode instead of only certain levels of the campaign, it also has a story to the campaign (even if you can play as either good or bad)
