Default Dawn of War > Dawn of War 2

Is it just me, or is Dawn of War 1 more enjoyable than Dawn of War 2?

Army Painter rocks, Unit building is fun, Units fire power feels like Fire Power, not some "Pew pew" feel. Dont get me wrong, DoW2 looks awesome, and has Awesome animations... But i wish they atleast put a "Classic" Mode that played like DoW1... Then it would had been perrrrrrrrffect!

What do you guys think?

I'll wait and see what DoW 3 has to offer but I agree with what you've said.

I do like last stand though

Yeah, i hope DoW3 has an awesome Army builder, its one of the many things that made me fall in love with the series. Perhaps a unit by unit costumizer?

Last Stand is awesome indeed. Like i said, DoW2 is awesome, but i find myself having lots of fun creating bases or even just adding more units to the squad and upgrading their gears.

This has been discussed quite a few times.

DoW DC>All Others

I play FoK DC on a daily basis, DoW2 got boring but i did play it and enjoyed it for a while.
Nothing beats building up a base, turtling for a while, then sallying forth with a massive army, especially against Insane level CPU's... on 8 Player maps.

Yeah for me DoW2 has a great look to it but I found DoW1 to be much mmore fun. I also grew up playing SC though so that might have attributed to that abit, base builders are great <3

The aftermath is red. The ground is stained with blood. Death is everywhere. A god laughs. All is darkness...

I think they stepped away from the whole base building as EA (westwood studios) had domination with C&C, then all of a sudden EA stepped away from it and trashed an absoulutly amazing franchise!!!!! WTF, if DoW 3 goes back to it i'll be well happy.

Not holding my breath though

If you've got the cash I'd say both. They are both excellent games in their own right, although I personally prefer DoW2, because I am so utterly sick of base builders. I can barely enjoy SC2 anymore and that is a whole lot more balanced than DoW DC. DoW2 is a lot more squad based, and each individual is a lot more important than in DoW DC. If you want more races and bigger battles, then go for DoW DC, but of you want great graphics and tactics then go for DoW2 Retribution.

I think ill go with DoW2 since 1 sounds a bit too much like sc2... I too am sick of base builders, other than sc cuz honestly I just love the game too much. Age of empires/mythology? Warcraft? They got boring... Question, is DoW2 like squad command for DS? I played that for a while... i had such high hopes for it :/

So, actually contributing to the discussion, looks like it depends on what you like - either base-building or squad control.

+1 for being over the base builder thing, was never a fan of it.

having said that I do like each of the games equally and playing via LAN is a hoot.
