3.0 out of 5 stars crashes.., 3 May 2010
This review is from: Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
The game holds a rather short campaign, which is fully co-opable. I bought the game with a friend, in the intention to co-op through it. I would give this a 4/5, but end up giving 3/5 because we crashed regularly to the desktop. Sometimes both of us. In the end we'd crash after every mission to some stupid error message (can't create dump file). A couple of times it would crash IN THE MIDDLE of a mission. And since you cant save DURING missions, we had to replay them. WE DIDNT HAVE THOSE PROBLEMS WITH THE ORIGINAL GAME.

Another point of critic is that there's not much reason to be good, other than the ending. There's only a handful of items you can use, and all of them were below average or useless (couple of scrolls, never a weapon or armor). On the other hand, tons of corrupted/-ing items dropped. Items we couldnt even destroy from the inventory without causing corruption to everyone. And then some others which just wouldn't be destroyed at all, like regular items for the new squad member. They just ended up filling the inventory for no apparent reason at all.

We ended up NOT taking the new squad member for almost all missions, and just stuck with Thaddeus, Tarkus and Avitus (two ranged, two melee).

If you played through part I you should probably get this one. If you plan to co-op its still fun, but brace yourself for crashes.
