Warhammer 40K Dawn of War II Chaos Rising
this game is the best computer game ever i recommend to everybody
I am looking to buy a new computer game. I like games where you make you own army. I never played these warhammers games bfore and this one looks sweet. Can any1 tell me if Ill like it and if you can play this without getting any of the other war hammers? Thanks
FINALY CHAOS IS BACK! amzing just as expected loved story mode, love online play LOVE THE GAME!
WARNING! Game only for true RTS fans you will not like it if RTS is not your mane game. This is RTS in its most pure form this is true war. I also reccomend playing the first dawn of war and winter assualt before DOW 2 the other x-packs are good including Dark Crusade witch i think is the best out of all of them but the first 2 are key to story line.
Now onto story mode it was same game play as DOW 2 just with corruption added. All that meens is you get bad after killing some bosses and wearing some armor. Corruption dose NOT do anything really until END!
Corruption is key at the end if you can try to have your worst squad be the most corrupted as they will turn against you at the end. As it turns out the snitch to chaos is you most corrupted unit unfortunetly for me when the time came Avitus was the most corrupted and he was also my best squad and VARY key to my gameplay. Hardest fight ever so PLEASE PLEASE if you read this and you havent beaten it yet my someone that sucks go bad like your scouts.
Online play is great i hate how ranked there is only points not to the death. Last stand is AWSOME a little hard for some races and not many players so when you get grouped even when lvls 15-20 you often are with lvl 3s. sucks only for PC so i cant play on the road as my laptop is mac book pro so can only play at home but overall AMAZING AMAZING GAME!
As an expansion to DOW this game is wonderful. Chaos has finally arrived and made the game series feel whole again. New units for the old factions are also included. The campaign is epic and leaves you wondering what you could of done differently if *spoiler* one of your squad mates becomes corrupted. Multiplayer is back and better than ever. Overall this game is excellent and i would recommend this game to all DOW fans!
DoW2: Chaos Rising
For one thing, I love when people bash a game for breaking off from tradition and moving to a new stage. That being said, DoW2 and it's upcoming expansion are unique in the world of rts's. The blend of real-time strategy and pre-battle decisions make for a new and exciting mission each and every time the Marines deploy. The two downers to DoW2 were the fact that it takes two very high end computers to do the online co-op and the maps in the game are deathly repetitive. I don't expect either of these problems to have been resolved in DoW2: CR.
The original dawn of war 40k PC game when all was said and done had something like 9 playable races, campaign for each one and to top it all off had so many maps it was impossible to count them all. And due to the easy access and built in mod manager it was a great game. Everything that was good about the first ones died with dawn of war 2. But the may have a chance of redemption if they bring the corrupting into the mix. That way you can be evil or good and still level up. This makes for a more enjoyable experience. This choice though simple is a breakthrough in rpg rts games and the like. I am expecting great things from THQ this time. You have never failed me in the past don't start now.
Expecting good things
I played Dawn of War 2 and loved every minute of it. By the looks of it and reading a couple sites I see that you can advance to lvl 30 now and get new war gear. If they kept the same systems from DoW2 I think this game has the potential to be great. If you haven't played Dawn of War 2 yet, then you need to get out there and try it! I'll be counting down the days to this game when next year comes.
