Dawn of War

Postby ArchAngel » Thu Jun 28, 2012 10:03 pm

In light of the entire Dawn of War franchise being on sale for 75% off for this weekend on Steam, I wanted to ask the community what they thought of these games.

I'll be picking up at least Dawn of War 2, but am yet undecided on the 2 expansion packs. Being that Dawn of War 2: Retribution is a stand alone, I might just pick that up.
Thoughts?

I'm a casual gamer when it comes to Dawn of War. Haven't spent a lot of time on it, but I can say that I was a bit disappointed with the original Dawn of War 2. DoW 1 wasn't exactly non-linear, but if offered a freely approachable campaign map - which DoW 2 doesn't offer.

I guess for someone new to DoW it would not be buzz-kill to play a linear title in the series. As long as the story intrigues you. Company of Heroes was a strictly linear story RTS(from the same developers) and it was perfect for me.

Unfortunately I haven't had time to take on Retribution, but I hear it's great.

Interesting, never looked into Company of Heroes. I think I written it off as another military FPS and never check it out.

I picked Retribution from Steam, so I'll be trying it one of these days. New campaigns for each race, so the issue for plain DoW2 might not be relevant. Might.

Been playing DoW off and on for a while now, slowly working on the campaign. I like it a lot, especially the way Assault Marines blast everything around them when they jump in.

I always picture my Black Templars doing that when I'm playing tabletop Warhammer 40,000 :mrgreen:

I realize this thread is pretty much dead and all, but I have DoW2: Retribution, and I found it quite fun. I'm curious as to what everyone else thinks about it.

I really enjoyed DoW2 and its expansions. I know a lot of folks hated the fact that DoW2 wasn't 4x like DoW, but I thought it was cool to have a more tactical focus. I felt that this allowed for a more "40k feel" to the game. I also think the Last Stand game mode is pretty cool.
