Compared to first one, DOW 2 is just bad. Small maps, small number of units, unresponsive units, stupid special powers i mean theres almost nothing good on this game. They tried to make it mix of DOW and Company of heroes but they totally botched it. Seems they were aiming to make game more e-sports friendly, which they also failed. They took out base building which i understand, but then again some Heros can build turrets and there are Power generators that can be build. Looks like they couldnt even decide what to leave out.
DOW, especially Dark Crusade was really good but Company of Heroes is best game from THQ anyway. Even when im WH40K fan, COH shines.
I was hoping too that destroyable terrain would have been bigger factor as in COH, but theres not even much buildings to go inside. Also tanks on DOW 2 seem more like afterthought, they should have looked more to COH and how they made tankwarfare. And those 4 special power that each commander has that you buy with requisition. Totally unimaginative. Some dont make since not at all and no balance whatsoever. I wont be buying anymore DOW 2 games, never after this turdpile they released. Too much eye candy, not enough gameplay.
Still waiting for some kind of realism mod for this game, where marines are against numerous enemies.
