Skirmish and Multiplayer is impossible... you can't use the 1, 2, 3, and 4 hotkeys for squads because you can't change a squad's hotkey, they have to have been spawned in that order, and most of the ones I spawn first are just suicide hit-and-runners who just keep the enemy occupied while I build up my real force.

I got it yesterday from the Best Buy, and so far I'm quite impressed with it. The Campaign is possibly the most fun and (almost) realistic version of a Warhammer game I've seen yet. I love the continuation of the old DoWs, with references to Kronus from Dark Crusade. I haven't heard any mention of Soulstorm, though. Perhaps they glossed over that. Probably for the best.

Either way, the units ROCK! Space Marines are finally (almost) fluffy. My standard roster for Campaign is the FC, Tarkus, Cyrus, and Avitus. Thaddeus is near-useless IMO and the Dread doesn't auto-heal, which gets on my nerves. The Tyranids are a little overpowered (I've taken to calling Barbed Strangler Warriors "Bosses"), but the vehicles are a little underpowered to compensate. So far my most difficult level has been hunting down the Lictor Alpha on that desert planet.

I did run into some problems with Steam, but almost as soon as I began to play the game I forgave them, because, at least for me, this game is GREAT!

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

I have to contradict what you say... In the fluff, the Tyranids are a lot more powerful than in the game. At least, that's what the Black Library novels say. From what I'm reading, the Tyranids are a lot harder to kill than in the game. The Orks are also a little underpowered, but not nearly as much. The Eldar seem just about right.
