i play it. i dont find it that great though. the only reason ive got them cause i get them for free. i find them to be an EXTREMELY poor representation of the 40k world and tabletop game. still its something entertaining to do if ive got nothing else.

I do but I play it at a friends as i haven't got them due to my Mac being too old to run windows on it.
I really like the first three but I haven't played soulstorm yet. Can't wait for DOW II to come out with the Nids.

I play them and love them. Great MP games, if you only play SP then yea they would be boring. DOW is all about automatch I just love it, I had a pretty good automatch score before the resets. Yes they are a poor respention of the Fluff but then TT is an even worse respention, so like TT I just play them for fun and read books for fluff.

Violence is never the answer, it is the question, to which the answer is, yes

I have all of them. They get monotonous after a while. But Dawn of War 2 won't be because you deccide what happens in the storyline! YAY! Can't wait for it. Also I have a brilliant mod for Soulstorm that has Tyranids on.

Yeah i have them all too, im not a very big fan of the story mode on RTS games and end up just playing the skirmish or at LANs (I have the Omega Sektor in Birmingham City Centre) i find that playing against a computer sucks tho.

i dunno if it just cheats or im doing the wrong thing but sheesh after like 10mins i cannot build 10 defilers but the computer can... Against other people tho the game is fairly fun but overall i find it very bland.

Its a shame really because Relic make another RTS game that is very good and has a nice engine inside of it called Company Of Heroes... You can get rear armor hits on tanks, better cover rules, better animation and better physics. It Acctully plays more like the 40k tabletop game than DoW does.

I hear that DoW2 uses the same engine so its looking good plus it has the nids in :D
