Simply put, Dawn of War II feels like the result of some mad scientist's experiment, the by product of the splicing of Dawn of War with Company of Heroes, Relic's other, more recent RTS.

""You miss being able to build a big base, in a real "boys and their toys" way""

Ah well . But that wont stop me from getting this game , it'll still remain ma most fav rts . Hope they increase the unit cap and unit types by 1 or 2 in upcoming DLCs

totally agree with the review but not with the score . U urself said that there will be people who hate it , and some who will love it . But u allied with the former in the end and gave the score .

DoW 2 throws away all the unesscessary things from the part DoWs like the stupid dreadnoughts that used to happen when two large armies collided , n the game usually lasted for hrs .

Micro management rocks , for the first time tactics are of some use , and u have to use your brain . Base buildng is gone , m happy . But fewer unit types available is not gud .

Still Mp is top notch , and overall this game easily desrves a 9 , since u guys dont go decimal . i will personally give it 9.5 /

i was really looking forward to this game, but after reading more and more about it, i may just check it out later if i have some extra cash around (unlikely).

remaking the game for casual fans is scary. the first game wasn't broke. i just needed Tyrannids!

Think I’ll give it a bash. I’m tired of base building RTS already (After 15 years of it!). I always lost interest when I became too powerful and overwhelmed the AI. Much prefer games where you have to pick your army before the battle starts(Like Total War and erm, MechCommander, remember that one? Classic!), there’s proper strategy in it that way, instead of being rushed after 30 secs of play or overwhelmed by another player who can click things faster than you.

THis game is really great. Single player is good but multiplayer is the finest for any rts to date. 9/10 not 8/10
