  • User Rating 7.5

    Fun game, but certainly not better than the predecessors.

    Rated on October 26, 2012 by jstncloud

    The inclusion of additional races for the campaign was amazing, at first glance, but the abysmal length of each campaign was insulting at best when comparing them to the preceding DoWII titles (origin...

    It's great from how much I've played so far.

    Rated on March 01, 2011 by chump91

    I know this is probably too early to do a review on Retribution, considering it was only released about 6 hours ago. Anyways, so far I've played through about 4hrs of the Space Marine campaign, an...

    What Dawn of War 2 should have been 2 years ago.

    Rated on March 01, 2011 by edmond_villamor

    Oh yes mates, DOW2 is back with a vengeance, I just played the single player campaign for about an hour and all I can say is I love the new things they've done with this game. More characters to us...

    Retribution makes Chaos Rising look like a waste of money

    Rated on March 01, 2011 by george43

    The single player campaign takes the Chaos Rising formula of level/campaign design and improves on it ten fold. The original Dawn of War campaign design was clear the map kill a boss at the end. Cha...

    Is it a tactical game? Is it an RTS? Well, it is fun!

    Rated on March 01, 2011 by Dylanius

    TL;DR The game plays like a DoW2 Multiplayer/Campaign hybrid. It has a few bugs but is still a fun, solid game. I like it and recommend it. --- Having played the daylights out of Dawn of War (up un...

    Choice is the name of the game in Retribution. And boy does it make for an amazing experience!

    Rated on March 02, 2011 by RedMageNeko

    Retribution takes place ten years after the events of the previous expansion, Chaos Rising. And oh BOY have things gone straight to the Warp. Heretics are spread all across the systems, remnants of th...

    Best of the series!

    Rated on March 04, 2011 by gojiro0

    Retribution is a damn fine game - Relic seems to have perfected their formula where this RTS is concerned. The character upgrade trees are similar to DOW:2 but with the "blank" points between powers ...

    Horrible cover system combined with horrible movement and insufficient units take this game from a 9.0 to a 8.0.

    Rated on March 05, 2011 by asinantr

    DoW always surprises with new added futures, this time 6 playable races, as well as bringing the structures back into the game has done it for this stand-alone game. However many have missed out on...

    Expansions for the Expansion God! Add-ons for the Add-on throne!

    Rated on March 05, 2011 by LordRork

    I've been playing the Dawn of War games since the beginning, and they always seem to slight with a slow but promising first game, only made great by its expansions. Retribution finally allows you t...
