The Story Continues
It is the distant future and the Imperium of Man has spread across the entire galaxy. But our days of expansion are long past. Once, when the Emperor of Man led us in battle, we were unstoppable, but no longer. The Emperor has withdrawn to Earth to rule from his Golden Throne, leaving us to fight a thousand wars of attrition in his name where our defenders die by the billions. We have little hope for support from Earth and we are losing the battle for human survival. Our only chance lies with the Space Marines, genetically modified warriors of superhuman ability and the pinnacle of human potential. But the Space Marines are few, the galaxy is large and our enemies are countless. The situation is most dire in Sub-Sector Aurelia. It is from this cluster of worlds on the very edge of the Imperium that came the Blood Ravens, a chapter of the Emperor's own Space Marines. Now savage aliens seek to overrun the sector, and break the Blood Ravens once and for all. Captain Davian Thule and a handful of Space Marines lead the raw recruits defending these worlds. Yet, another Space Marine prepares to join this desperate battle, a newly promoted Commander, ready to lead in our darkest hour. You are this Space Marine.

Gameplay
Dawn of War II is split between campaign-based gameplay playable as a Space Marine, supporting singleplayer and co-op action, and skirmish gameplay in which players can play as any of the four playable factions in singleplayer or multiplayer battles. In the case of these multiplayer conflicts, gameplay and matchmaking is supported via the Games for Windows LIVE gaming service. In addition, unlike previous Dawn of War games or expansions, Dawn of War II features an increased and more realistic acknowledgment of the importance of cover. To that end players will notice that some environments in-game are now fully or partly destructible by certain units in their arsenal, adding to the battlefield carnage and the need for players to plan their strategy and choose their playable units and battlefields wisely.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, innovative, but repetitive and steam+GFWL February 23, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is fun, but it had the potential to be amazing, and fell short. Originally I said to wait before buying, but the bugs have been ironed out, and now it's a good time, specially at the discounted prices.

Things to know:
- Requires Games For Windows Live (GFWL) account
- Steam installation and account required
- No base building (departs from traditional RTS)

=== SUMMARY ===
I just realized the review has gotten pretty long as I've added other information, so I wanted to write something for those people who want a quick overview:
If you don't mind few units, Steam, Games For Windows Live and lack of base building, you will enjoy the game a lot. The loot/items, unique characters, combat right from the start, persistent troops throughout the single player campaign, and an engaging and different 4 races make this game a great departure from traditional RTS. All wrapped up with great graphics, sound and animation to boot. The single player campaign does become very very repetitive after mission 30 or so. (there are probably 80 plus missions - I'm on 75 and counting)

=== THE BAD STUFF ===
- Steam (more details below)
- You need to be connected to the internet to play the single player campaign.
- You need to be logged in to Windows Live to play the game... ugh...
- [[EDIT February 27: While the game crashed quite a bit when I first got it, it has been very stable with the last 2 patches, improving things dramatically. I only have 1 BSOD right after a February 23 major patch. So it looks like the crashing issues have been ironed out. But it was a serious issue at first]]
- Single player campaign ONLY for marines... This is just plainly a bad decision.

4.0 out of 5 stars A new direction but still good. March 4, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was skeptical when I bought this game. It was not so much Dawn of War 2 as it was its own new game. The only thing it held in common with the original was the setting and the developer. If you can get past the fact that this isn't the original with better graphics then you should really enjoy this game.

Single Player, the campaign was very enjoyable. The story was a little lacking compared to say Starcraft but it was much better then Dark Crusade or Soul Storm. The RPG element gives replayablity and is really fun to collect different weapons.

Multiplayer, is fast paced and really enjoyable. 3v3 is where its at and you can have games that swing back and forth. The coop campaign is a huge bonus.

It does require an internet connection, windows live and steam. But I personally have experienced no problems with this and I find it to be a better option compared to others.

The future, this game has tons of options for the future. I really hope relic sticks to their promise of supporting this game, because it could be one of the greats.

2.0 out of 5 stars If it ain't broke... April 2, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Contrary the developers' opinion, this game does not combine the best of Company of Heroes and Dawn of War; rather, it is CoH translated into a Warhammer 40k storyline -- and a lot gets lost in translation.

First off, the experience of installing this game -- simply getting to PLAY it for the first time -- was something I would not wish upon my worst enemy. Downloading and registering for three separate Big Name online platforms is just the beginning; then there's Steam to deal with and the fact that THQ are not thrifty with their update download sizes. Plus there's no way you can run the game if Steam even gets a whiff of an update that it wants. For someone with unlimited broadband access this is no problem; us plebs outside the US and Europe, however, usually have a download cap, which Steam apparently has no sympathy for.

The game itself has an amusing, if monotonous, single player campaign, which is apparently touted as having great replay value. I was personally very disappointed with the RPG elements brought into the multiplayer, since this is exactly what Blizzard did to ruin WarCraft II when they made WarCraft III. Aside from the fact that armies are now considerably smaller than they used to be in DoW -- there goes another star off the rating -- the gameplay itself feels much more sluggish and unwieldy. Frankly this cover idea becomes annoying after the novelty has worn off. Combine with this fewer unit options, fewer upgrades, a tech tree that makes you wonder why they even bothered to include it, and you're left wondering how a great game like Dawn of War could have been pruned down to hatch such a lacklustre, over-hyped, and anaemic progeny.

Did THQ want to make Dawn of War accessible to younger audiences (eg. the three to seven age group)?

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game... just not from Amazon February 20, 2009
Platform for Display:PC|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First of all, if you look at the box (which you'll have to if you have the game, since if you're buying the game then you obviously didn't get it from Amazon)... right underneath the system requirements, in red lettering to draw your eyes to it, it says "Internet Connection Required." About half an inch below that, in bold text to once again draw your eyes to it, it explains that you have to activate the product via the internet and that it's done through Steam. This is before you open the game, this is before you even remove the slipcover from the game. If it was hidden in the wall of small text at the bottom that explains all of the copyright info that'd be one thing, but this is right by the system requirements and is highlighted to get people to notice it. If you don't realize it then it's not because it's not there.

On to the game itself. This isn't Dawn of War with shinier graphics. It isn't Company of Heroes in space. Dawn of War 2 is its own game, with unique single player and multiplayer components. Unlike some other games where a few scripted scenes are the only difference between SP and MP, you'll find huge differences in how these two modes are played.

The campaign plays out completely differently than the multiplayer component, having you guide persistent squads through different battle zones (on different worlds)... instead of having an entire map available to you like in Dark Crusade or Soulstorm, you have to choose between a few missions that become available at a time.
