[STEAM] Dawn of War II Weekend Deal

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, I've played Warhammer 40K (the tabletop version wit little models and dice) for more than a decade and a half.

I've always thought about getting Dawn of War II, and could not resist the weekend deal.

So post your thoughts about this game... I'm looking forward to playing (currently downloading).

My impressions from another thread:

Quote:
I haven't played the new expansion, but I do own DoW2 and Chaos Rising. Even as an RTS fan I feel like these are pretty underwhelming, CoH is a much superior game, and with games like SC2 around there just isn't really a reason to play DoW2. The campaign was somewhat interesting until you realize most of the missions are just doing the same thing repeatedly on slightly different looking maps. For how much the games focus on having fewer units and more micromanagement, it still boils down to setting up your machine gunner, maybe using an ability or two from your commander, and waiting until that particular enemy blob has been slain by your units.

That sounds a lot like how the tabletop game plays
