@kyphe: I got bored pretty quickly too, but I played it again a few months later and got totally addicted. Happened again with Chaos Rising. You don't know what you're missing, it's good man. In fact, my only complaint about Chaos Rising's campaign is that it's too short, far shorter than DOWII's.
There is not a chance in hell of me ever playing this or any other DOW2 game until someone tells me they sorted out that absolute fail of a single player campaign system. I never even managed to finish the original dow2 single player campaign as it bored me to death with its tiresome repetition. I don't multi-play that often so if a game does not have a strong single player element its not worth my time or my money. If you have never played any DOW ignore this and go pick up the original and the expansions such as winter assault and dark crusade
Rightly deserved. Have played this EP 6 times over now, as there are five different endings. Brilliant work, and while just an Ep the new content, strategies and missions are diverse and difficult enough to warrant a purchase for any RTS/ARPG fan.
