Not much here

There are a bunch of negatives, but I will stick to the highlights. There is no strategy and no significant tactical challenge playing the campaign mode. The lack of unit variety and basebuilding are other significant deficits. Basically you are given a few squads of Space Marines to kill a bunch of aliens. As long as to keep you squads moving close together with overlapping fields of fire, you will have no trouble with any campaign scenario. That's pretty much it. It's probably one of the easiest RTS games I have ever played. The multiplayer skirmishes are a bit more challenging, but the key to victory here is simply to build up units and take over control nodes as quickly as possible. And with only a total of six multiplayer maps to choose from, things get quite repetitive and dull pretty fast. Honestly, I got bored with the game after playing it for only a couple of days. Another big gripe is that it requires you to log onto Steam to play. Quite annoying. The first Dawn of War was much better. My advice is to wait until this game shows up in the $9.99 discount bin.
