Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II is set in the grim, war-ravaged world of Games Workshop's 'Warhammer 40,000' universe - a dark, futuristic, science-fiction setting where armies of technologically advanced warriors, fighting machines and hordes of implacable aliens wage constant war. Developed by critically acclaimed RTS developer Relic Entertainment, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II ushers in a new chapter in the acclaimed RTS series, as ancient races - including the dauntless Space Marines and savage Orks - clash across ruined worlds on a mission to claim the galaxy and preserve their own existence.
Powered by the re-vamped Essence Engine 2.0, the next evolution of Relic's proprietary game engine made famous in the award winning Company of Heroes, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II will deliver fast-paced RTS action with ferocious melee and ranged combat in fully destructible environments. Immersing players in an in-depth non-linear single-player campaign and a fully-co-operative multiplayer mode, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II is set to deliver the most visually-stunning Warhammer 40,000 setting ever created.
Always been a fan of the Warhammer games, this one is a great addition to the Dawn of War series. A real time strategy game based on the Warhammer 40,000 series.
Is a bit of a new concept for the Dawn of War games, you have your 4 or 5 leaders and thats it, no bases to spawn troops from or buildings to gain resources (at least in the campaign), I found this suprisingly fun and liberating as i was expecting to have to play an intense micro management mess.
You level your leaders by completing missions on various planets and gain weapons, armor and powerups along the way making this installment a much more RPG style game.
My only gripe with the game is that you only get to play as the Space Marines (in the campaign), unlike the previous games where you could play as all the races included in the game, I was quite looking forward to playing as the Tyranids (rumored to be coming out as expansions).
