2.0 out of 5 stars so so repetitive 4 July 2011

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I love Relic, from their Homeworld series (my fav. games) and Company of heroes.
Dawn of War 1 was one of the finest RTS and I played through it in a couple of days. Loved it to bits.

When i finally upgraded my PC and got this one, I was expecting more of the same - I had disregarded a lot of reviews.
I love the fact that the focus in DoW was on the action, and the resource points you had to capture, means you weren't bogged down in your base churning out unit after unit.

In DoW2, they have removed the base building altogether (No!!!!!!!!) and moved away even more from the standard RTS template. This is more like a RPG/RTS. You have a mission screen where you get your missions and then you pick your units. These units stay with you through the entire campaign, gaining experience and items they can equip. While it is a great idea, the missions are not much fun.

The maps are recycled, heavily. You can complete a mission on one map, noticing that there are buildings you can capture - but no, you can only capture one per deployment. Ok, then another mission comes along, slightly different but on the same map, only this time it's raining (I found that I would constantly lose track of my pointer when it rained - but then I was playing at 2560x1440 so pixel pitch was tiny). Doesn't matter though, same map, same terrain.

And then this continues. Same maps, same contraints.

I wish this would have been good, but after playing through half the game I really can't be bothered any more, it's just so repetitive. I really hope that Relic go back to the DoW 1 template as that was perfect.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome game definitely worth owning 27 April 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've not had this much fun with an RTS in a long time, the factions are nicely balanced and multiplayer is relatively well executed, but its the single player where this game really shines, Very well constructed campaign with good story and unit growth. Only slight issues are that more races would have been nice (though I'm sure that will change with more expansions) and the campaign is only from the space marine point of view but these are reflections on what is not there, what is there is almost flawless.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
i am glad i bought it on amazon for the 7 ish instead of paying 30-40 each for dow 2 and chaos rising. i will admit my internet isnt the fastest but 6 days after i got the game it had finished downloading off the internet and updating itself. its a good thing it resumes if internet connection is lost or i would never have got it ! this is after so called buying it! i could have got a full pirate version off torrents in a lot less time like some friends i know. steam? you can really shove where the sun dont shine, and windows live log in as well is just taking the p1%%. so after not actually getting the game on the disc, cos it seems you dont, you then are pestered by windows live and steam. its rubbish. IF I BUY A GAME I WANT IT ON THE F*"$ING DISC!! NOT PERMISSION TO DOWNLOAD IT FOR 6 DAYS.
so i now have it and it looks good, not as good as i thought it would, but good. pity its just the looks. its nothing compared to soulstorm. very repetatitve. fiddly controls. detail on models is a waste of time because if you zoom in to enjoy it you cant co-ordinate the wider battle. charector deveopoment is nice but half thought through, why upgrade the commander of each squad and not the squad? it doesnt make sense.
so, it took an age to get running, I didnt get anything worth buying on the disc, and it dosent live up to the hype.... hoist the jolly roger ?!?!? the makers of DOW 2 seem to want you to ??
its a risk at 7!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best package so far! 8 Nov 2010
By Rage
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Being a fan of the Games Workshop universe, I can still remember how amazing it was to see my models come to life through the first Dawn of War games.
Dawn of War 2 is another step in the right direction and I love zooming in on the characters with the much updated graphics to see the textures of their faces etc.
With the Gold edition including both DOW2 & Chaos Rising, this is a must buy for all Warhammer 40K fans, plus anyone else who love RTS games!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great 4 Oct 2010
By Wallaid
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
There are a couple of downs with this game, but nothing serious.
First it required a Steam account for activation, but proved that it also needed to download a couple of GB from Steam, which seems odd when I bought a hard copy.
Second, on top of the Steam account I also needed to create a Windows Live account to be able to play the game online. So two accounts needed just to install the game and play online.
Those are minor issues and doesn't affect my review rating.

I expected a strategy game similar to Dawn of War 1 but they changed the mechanics away from traditional RTS games into the Company of Heroes style (no base building). I'm not really a fan of that kind of strategy games, but the DoW2 campaign is good fun and micro managing the small attack force is well designed.

If you're a WH40K universe fan, this is a must have. The campaign perfectly brings the characters to life.

The Chaos expansion has a small twist to it's squad management as you can corrupt your squads.
