5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent budget title for the non-serious gamer 18 May 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
A major thorn in the side for modern PC users is that we have to fork out huge sums of money for hardware to play games without a stuttering frame rate, this is not the case for this game. I play this on my 1.5 GHz Celeron M laptop with 512 MB RAM, with some lightweight shared RAM videocard and it runs with 800x600 resolution and no jerkiness. If you're looking for a simple strategy game with ham-acted cut-scenes then you will like this title.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I used to play the tabletop game (well i played it once) and it wasnt the easiest thing to understand, nor was it the cheapest hobby. I gave up playing it after one game as i just couldn't get my head round it. That was about 5 years ago.

However, childish as I am I still miss the cool Space Marines and Predator Tanks I used to build and paint, then relic announced they were making a RTS based on 40K, I jumped at the chance to be involved again without looking like a Kid. (no offence to people my age who play it, just proves you have more guts than me)

This game is fantastic, the looks, the playability, and the variety of gameplay are superb, from the general feel of the game as an RTS, to the full scale skirmishes you witness when things get up close and personal between the factions in close combat, everything has been thouroughly thought out to give one of the finest rts experiences available on a budget today.

Your System doesnt have to be pure gold either, my copy runs on high on all settings at 60fps on a geforce fx5200, a gig of ram, and a 3.0ghz pentium 4.

My only gripe is that the single player camaign Is a bit short.

This is a great rts that no rts fan should miss out on, even if you know nothing about Warhammer 40K

5.0 out of 5 stars Beginning of a great era 4 Dec 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is where it all started. Dawn of War is one of the greatest RTS games I have ever played. Unlike other strategy games such as Age Of Empires, Dawn of War is fast paced game without the emphasis on gathering resources or building a town, the production of units rather than individual men mean that you are more likely to get into battles a lot faster. The animation is better and makes watching a massive dreadnaught rip through an eldar aspect warrior more entertaining. The four armies provide the game with lots of variety as each army has different tactics and units that need to be mastered.

4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good RTS 14 Feb 2007
By mosta67 VINE VOICE
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Apart from the Total War series, I avoid real time strategy games. I can't be bothered with gathering nuts, berries and firewood to get enough resources to assemble lots of howitzers to rush my enemy and turn them into matchsticks.

Dawn of War has been in my cupboard after it brought back embarrassing memories of painting the little space marine figures about 20 years ago.

Installing it again after a recommendation, I'm glad I gave it another chance. Addictive it most certainly is.

No gathering of rocks, building mines and organising villagers to grow you a fighting force; Dawn of War sticks you in the middle of strategic zones with limited build resources, enough to get a few squads of marines out and about, to crack a few skulls to take over strategic points, which allow you to build more marines, tanks, and small mechs to repeat the process til you've eliminated everything on the map. Marines are created in squads, losses replaceable if there are enough resources, which mean you don't endlessly have to keep a constant conveyor belt of troops; concentrating on building tech buildings, vehicles or research into new technology.

Tank rushes don't always work, needing a variety of troop types to succeed, and keeping a newly conquered strategic point can be tricky if you've spread yourself too thin.

There's a story in the campaign somewhere, to allow you to fight orks, eldar and chaos marines, cut scenes with the game engine struggling to sync dialogue with lip movements ( roll on a martial arts game that takes advantage of this) put this across, but the aims outlined in the mission briefings don't always have a great bearing on the game itself. Kill everything that moves is usually the best idea.

The campaign is a little short (~10 missions), hence the 2 mission packs now available, but for while it lasts, it's quite enjoyable, and certainly worth playing if bundled with Company of Heroes or on budget.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, Not bad at all... 10 Jan 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Brilliant graphics, great game, good storyline, but, it's too short, I like games tolast longer than 2-3 days. maybe let down by too much cinematic footage, perhaps they should have used the space available on a DVD to make game last longer with more missions.

There is a bit too much static activity, not saying this is a bad thing as the game is based upon a specific chapter which have their own armamanent details, I have my own chapoer and work to similar designs where units are never bigger than 7 and they can only uopgrade to a meltagun etc.

But I would have liked more upgrade options with the weaponry that is available to space marines in the 40K universe. Still, miles ahead compared to the previous 40K games.

3.0 out of 5 stars Polished game but very limited 10 May 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
As probably one of the minority of people who bought this but wasn't quite impressed enough to buy the expansions I think I can write something that's useful for the distinctly casual gamer. It's definitely a great game, if you played Red Alert 2 when it first came out it's that same feeling of polished freshness but like RA2 it's also pretty limited with armies that definitely play differently but game design that's still just an arms race to get the god weapons. I had fun with this but it just wasn't stand out enough to warrant addiction, World in Conflict on the other hand just turns the whole idea of RTS on it's head and I'd definitely recommend that as my number 1 choice atm.

1.0 out of 5 stars RTS that doesn't feel like WH40K at all
A decent RTS that is based on the WH40K setting. But if you come to this game looking for something that *feels* like WH40K you will be very dissappointed. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Dawn of war
Dawn of war is an RTS, no different than most in it's format, but it is based on taking certain points on the map to gain resources, there is no harvesting ore and the like. Read more
