"Apart from using GFWL The best merge of RTS, RTT and RPG"
4 stars"

I loved the original Dawn of War and Winter Assault, even though Dark Crusade and Soulstorm ruined the first series I was adamant to give Dawn of War 2 a go.

The Campaign is one of the most best I've ever played, because instead of focusing on building a base and then spamming the most powerful unit, you only have 4 squads to control. This ruined the game for most “Die Hard” RTS players yet it made this game immediately my favorite RTS game.

The Campaign also has the ability to play it online with a friend in CO-OP mode, which makes it even more fun IMHO.

Dawn of War 2 Gold pack includes the GOTY edition and it's first expansion: Chaos Rising. Chaos Rising continues the story of the Aurelian Sub-Sector about a year after the events of Dawn of War 2, and allows you to choose your ending, out of Uncorrupted, slightly Corrupted, mainly Corrupted or completely Corrupted. What the ending is depends on the options you take in game, each mission after the 3rd allow you the chance to corrupt or redeem your squads, also the war-gear you equip them with can also either corrupt or redeem them.

The Last Stand is my favorite game mode. In The Last Stand you choose one from: Eldar Farseer, Space Marine Captain, Ork Mekboy, Tyranid Hive Tyrant or a Chaos Sorcerer. In game you face off against 20 waves of enemies with two other players.

The one thing this game has that is lacking IMO is the multi-player skirmish.

"run and gun stratagy"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

not a slow stratagy great if you only have 30minutes. not to much thinking involved with the leveling system, so you can spend your precious time slicing, crushing and blowing away your enemy’s. Good fun

"Calling all space marines."
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

An excellent addition for any gamer. A must buy for all the space marines out there who want to kick some orc rear end. Don't hesitate buy it now you won't be disappointed.

Description

Enter the grim darkness of the future where there is only war, in the Gold Edition of the acclaimed real-time strategy PC game franchise, Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II. Including both the original game, Dawn of War II, and the standalone expansion Dawn of War: Chaos Rising, the Dawn of War II Gold Edition challenges players to use the Space Marines to defend humanity from a variety of ravenous alien factions, as well as the traitorous Chaos Space Marines. The Gold Edition contains two single player campaigns, five factions to command in online multiplayer, a co-op gameplay options and more.

Defend the Imperium of Man
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 lead in battle, and the Imperium was unstoppable. Those days are no more. The Emperor has withdrawn to Earth to rule from his Golden Throne, leaving a thousand wars of attrition in his name where defenders die by the billions. There is little hope for support from Earth and humanity is losing the battle for survival. The 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 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.
