    This, my friends, is what RTS gaming is all about.

    Winter Assault is an awesome expansion to an awesome game. Relic has dethroned Blizzard as King of RTS. Warcraft 3 is PURE garbage compared to Warhammer: Winter Assault. There are a bunch of races who play uniquely,... Read Full Review

    A great expansion to an already-amazing game!

    Does not add much

    In multiplayer it is just getting used to new upgrades and new units and other than that nothing new. Half the time the keyboard hotkeys don't do what they are supposed to, which is frustrating. In campaign mode there is... Read Full Review

    Although not the biggest improvement or best race they couldve chose, not really bad

    When the race in this game was announced you could say i was a little disapointed. i heard great things about the other races, including tyranids and necrons. when i finally played it, i actually liked the imperial guard... Read Full Review
