    Default Dawn of War 2

    Looks good or bad? I recently bought the platinum deal which got me dawn of war and 2 expansions for 30 bucks. I find them mildly entertaining, think the next one will be any good?

    DoW and DoW2 is different from my point of view. It kinda like Warhammer: Mark of Chaos ( i was disappointed since i spent 50 buks on it since there's no base building and the combat is really dull).

    DoW = Base building
    DoW2 = Tactical Squad RTS'ish

    So its different in a good way : cover system, great graphic, tyranids introduce, destructible enviroment , custimization , and some base building (not sure though_

    It got 92% in the Swedish PC-Gamer and from what I've seen it looks pretty damn awesome. Then again, never trust a person that gets paid for writing reviews.

    Is this news to you?

    Anyways, DoW2 sounds really cool, especially the fact that soldiers will matter more now instead is sending endless waves of weak peons to die for you.

    The idea is great, the screenshots look like they just reskinned everything and threw it in the COH engine hoping that it turns out well. I don't think enough time was put into the graphics to make the game as good as it could be, since this time we're dealing with an RPG rather than an RTS.

    Well it's more of a hybrid, so I'm wondering how the whole "caring" about the character will go when you control them from a top down perspective.

    On the other hand co-op is always fun.

    I really didn't think DoW was all that good until the Dark Crusade expansion. DoW2 looks awesome.

    Zerg are the ripoff of tyranids.
    Zerg first appeared in starcraft in 98, tyrannids were released in 93 in 40k second edition.

    It's not like tyranids are inspired by all and every hive/bug alien from 1920 and onwards.

    I think it looks bad, what exactly are the tactical parts apart from deploying jet-pack guys or jokeying for cover? And people act as if the RPG-element and "personal" style of this game is new when another Warhammer 40K game already had this done much better back in 1998 (Chaos Gate) and in that game your dudes stayed dead when they died so losing a veteran hurt both your overall campaign and your feelings.

    Darkfall is going to be an FPS, First Person Sworder, which means you're going to sword the first person you meet.
