    Small scale hero-based RTS with brutal multiplayer.

    I'm not a fan of the Warhammer universe, or at least i wasn't until i got this game. The first game left me a little cold, i liked the idea of a system that forces you into the field and into the action. Something about ... Read Full Review

    Ambitious, but poor implementation of new features.

    This game is rather difficult for me to summarize fairly. On the one hand, the combat in the game is breathtaking. It's fast paced, tactical and beautiful to look at. This is a game where you CAN really be rewarded fo... Read Full Review

    Not bad at all

    Dawn of War 2 is one of those games that is relatively easy for me to review. It's pretty much just a solid RTS; nothing complicated. At the campaign's start, you find yourself in the position as the squad-commander o... Read Full Review

    Better than I thought it would be.

    I loved all of the old Dawn of War games, from the first to Dark Crusade. Had mixed reactions about Soulstorm. When Dawn of War II first made its appearance, I was ecstatic. I thought they would be updating the graphics,... Read Full Review

    LOL

    What the heck is this? I can tell you what it feels like – it feels like a game cobbled together by Relic from bits and pieces of stuff that didn't make it into the original CoH or the Opposing Fronts expansion pack. The... Read Full Review

    Just a solid good fun rts & rpg wrapped in one package. The story is good too with a nice non linear campaign.

    The best game in its series.

    Having played through all of the Dawn of War games (Dawn of War, Winter Assault, Dark Crusade and SoulStorm.) Dawn of War II really brought something new to the series, it brought something that made the game more fast-p... Read Full Review

    One of the worst sequels ever, It has so much top live up to. No base building and horrible population cap system!

    This game is a black stain on the reputation of THQ & Relic. Its been dummed down to a retard version where there is no more strategy involved, just pretty explosions and mindnumming commentary. They shouldn't eaven be a... Read Full Review
