Is that it?!,
This review is from: Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Great expansion, but 14 missions? I appreciate that playing the game through with different levels of corruption will change the outcome and therefore give some replay value but the single player missions are completed in one evening! While the endless defend mission of the original DOW2 were slightly dull after a while and some types of other mission also got repetitive this game just feels like they got bored and just put the game out half finished.
One mission with the predators, two on the space hulk and one mission with a real 'boss' to it (the final mission). There wasn't even time to try out wargear or experiment with different squad combinations and there was no real variety in missions (although there were clearly some good ideas for this - the space hulk missions, time sensitive missions, the predator mission etc).
New wargear is fun, Chaos forces present a difference challenge and there are some great parts but there really should've been much more to it!

I'd agree that I was expecting far more from this 'expansion'. Due to a very poor broadband connection, and the fact that you're forced to use Steam, it took longer for the 'patch' to download than it did for me to play through the campaign. What on earth was in the patch anyway? I bought the game & recieved a DVD & expected to be able to play after installing, but no, I had to wait for the patch. Over 48 hours later, I started playing, and managed to finish the campaign in less that than. Very poor value.
