For Dawn Of War fans this is an absolute must. Not only does it bring another popular race to the table - the Imperial Guard - but adds a number of new units to the existing races to add to the slaughter. The campaign is good fun (even better with a friend thanks to co-op) but now you can play it with the race of your choosing. Multiplayer is still brutal and unforgiving as ever, so if that's not your cup of tea then there is still the brilliant The Last Stand mode to satiate your online requirements.

It's worth mentioning that the Collectors Edition comes with special war gear for each race, normally available as paid DLC on Steam so it comes at a bargain price on Amazon. Also Relic have ditched Games For Windows Live in favour of the Steam overlay which makes inviting friends a much easier task.

Overall a brilliant addition to the Dawn Of War franchise, crafted with the passion and dedication you'd expect from a top developer. Nice one, Relic.

THQ sticking to what it knows best and, incidentally, THQ at their best.

Lets start with the arrival of the game. Comes in a meaty box with a plastic surround to protect the case. Inside the case is the game disc itself, the manual, a nice big DOWII: Retribution poster and some art cards. Nice.

Inseting the game will bring up steam. Yet another steam DRM game, no bother. For those who don't want to download all the files see below, otherwise allow it to download the files.

STEP 1. DON'T want to download.

- Insert disc and let steam download SOME files, then pause, right click -> delete local content.

- Exit steam completetly, leave the disc in tray.

- Go to Run

- Type: C:\Program Files\Steam\Steam.exe -install E:

NOTE: C: is the letter of your hard drive and E: is the letter of the DVD drive where the game disc is inserted.

For windows Vista and 7 (32-bit and 64-bit) users the path will look like the one below:

C:\Program Files(x86)\Steam\Steam.exe -install E:

- Steam should now restart. Log in and let it install.

- When install from disc is complete it will arrive around 90-95% done. The 10 or 15% accounts for updates or other content not on the disc.

- When complete. PLAY!

THE GAME

Graphics:

The graphics haven't really progressed from DOW II: Chaos Rising and DOW II though you can zoom right in on your units and see almost every tiny detail.

Gameplay:

The gameplay is same old same old.

My summary of Retribution: Stagnant, soulless & without merit. I'm not even sure it has any of the S in RTS left.

Lets' recap. The original Dawn of War was straightforward old-school RTS. You had one or two hero units, but the meat of the game was base building & wave after wave of attacks of disposable peons. Strategic slaughtering unadulterated fun. It was epic in scope if not in story. Even then, the developers made an effort to engage the player and I loved the characters & the glimpses into the W40K universe. Fast forward to the original Dawn of War II. Gone is the epic in scope, but instead we are treated to an in-depth viewpoint on the Space Marines, a tight RPG-like focus on heroes, wargear, upgrades, and tactics, as well as an engaging story. Again, I couldn't help but fall into the universe, and shepherd every marine as though they were my own children, considering it a personal failure if one died (I exaggerate slightly but you get the idea - I got immersed). In short, DOW created a saga, one that kept pulling the player back in.

By comparison, Retribution feels like a game thrown out on the basis that fans will buy any garbage with W40K on it. It lacks the tight RPG focus on heroes, because now you get those same disposable waves of peons to work with should you screw up. It lacks any meaningful story - indeed the wonderful exposition by Gabriel Angelos in the intro ... is about it. There's less pithy back and forth, no sense of evolution of heroes, almost no visible changes in them - it's a thoroughly spartan effort, as though the soul of the game got devoured in Warp transit, replaced with a little points counter & Steam achievements. So, unlike the preceding Chaos Rising which was pretty much more of the same DOWII, it has nothing really going for it.

It is a shame THQ went down. But thankfully they were able to give us some truly epic titles in their final years (Space Marine, DoW II Retribution, CoH 2, Metro 2033 etc.). Here are the reasons why you - if you own Dow II and/or Chaos Rising - should buy this game:

CAMPAIGN:
I've heard everyone complaining about the campaign but went ahead and played the Space Marine one and I have to say....it was better than I thought. It is undeniable that the Dawn of War II campaign was and still is the best in the DoW II trilogy, however I have to say that the Chaos Rising campaign actually isnt really better than this one...simply because the Chaos Rising campaign felt awfully short. While the Retribution campaign isnt as long as DoW II campaign, it certainly is longer than the Chaos Rising campaign and also takes you to more locations, although the missions themselves are certainly more bland and boring than those in the campaigns of both previous 2 DoW titles. They also did away with rewarding your degree of success with stars for completing a mission in record time, keeping everyone alive from start till finish and/or killing 100% of enemies. Furthermore, most missions have an annoyingly obvious corridor-like layout where the path literally winds itself like a snake from one end of the map to the other to prevent you from rushing it. Bridges or cliffs have been purposefully broken to prevent you from taking an alternate route. Very sad they resorted to this kind of poor mission design.

Still, what redeems the Retribution campaign is that they have taken a completely new approach: your squadmates no longer lead squads, but are one-man units. You have the option of replacing them with squads taken from the skirmish component of the game. E.g.
