This is easily the best RTS game on the PC right now. It's rich, detailed, involving and fantastic to look at, if you have the right system. On higher-end systems, you can zoom right in to soil level smoothly, so that you can see the combat as if you were looking through a soldier's eye.
The combat is brutal - pitching you against Orks, Eldar and eventually (no surprises here...) Chaos. You could be picky and ask for different races, such as Tyranids, but this will no doubt be covered in a future expansion pack. You could even ask for a choice of which army to lead through the campaign mode, rather than being stuck with the Blood Ravens space marines, but hey...
Control of squads and characters is intuitive - squads spawn together and stay together, which makes it easy for you to send a fairly hefty army into a pitched battle with only a few clicks. Support weaponry improves as you progress through the game and is a lot of fun, although you'll probably yourself sticking with cheaper tanks rather than more expensive ones, just for the sake of sheer weight of numbers.
OK - The plot in the campaign mode is a bit hackneyed, but really that's not the point. You only want to progress and annihilate after all...
The only other downer is that some of the voice acting is slightly dubious. I'm almost sure it's the same guy voicing all the characters. And some of the "battle-cries" of your troops are borderline hilarious.
But, we can't knock it too much.Read more ›
Living where there are no GW stores (a rarity in this country) and nobody else plays, my prayers where answered. Although very dubious about this game to begin with, it really does work as well as any Warhammer tabletop game should.
To be honest, the faults I have with this game are basic, the fact that there are no Thunderhawks, Demolishers or Bike squadrons in the game (or titans for that matter) are firmly made up for by the quality of the graphics and the overall playability of the game. Aesthetics aside, the difficulty level of the game could do with tweaking. Orcs are one thing and should be cut down easily but against Chaos marines the tabletop games always go down to the wire, often last man standing.
These small points aside, I wait with baited breath to see what they will come up with next. Hopefully some proper Epic or even a Battlefleet Gothic game and I hope that they keep a simillar game system.
An excellent game that, in my opinion, is more addictive than class a's....
It got GOTY for a reason.
Having played Warhammer quite a bit in after-school clubs and such, I was somewhat skeptical. The only other Warhammer game that I had played was Chaos Gate, and, needless to say, it lacked quite a bit. Dawn of War, however, is completely different.
This game just blew me away. Even though the tutorial became somewhat annoying after the first fifty little snippets of voice, you only need to play it for about five minutes before you can jump into a mission, with the basics of the game, and win with relative ease. But that's only mission one.
Everyone is true to their own race. Space Marines are a blind boltgun, Chaos is absolutely off it's head with power and corruption, the Imperial Guard have crap Morale but big numbers (Hell, they have a penal legion. The Raven's probably got /that/ regiment.), and the Eldar are all knowing.
On the whole, this is a really well put together game. Even though I am slightly disappointed ot not see all the units available (Bike Squadrons, Terminator Seargant and such), it was a pleasant surprise to see a tabletop game turned into such a polished piece of entertainment.
I look forward to buying the expansion packs, and if you don't have this game, I'll say it again. Get it. You won't be disappointed.
