The Original Dawn of War because of the awesome campaign and the kickass Inquisitor. (I still haven't completed it yet, mainly 'cause I'm distracted with DoW2, Soulstorm and Dark Crusade).

you.

must.

play.

this.

it does SO much- new units, new GUI, new everything.

Have you ever felt so at one with the world, with the universe, with everything that is, that you were overcome with love?

That is reality. That is the truth. What we make of it is up to us.

I do like all the DoW games....but i think I am gonna have to go against the tide and say I prefer DoW2 and chaos rising. Loved the campaign and the multiplayer.

And why all this hate for DoW2? I understand it's not your cup of tea, but they tried something different. They tried to be inovative and I think the game works well.

You may not like the outcome, but you should at least sort of respect Relic for trying to break the RTS mould and not just cash in on Dark Crusade and mass produce cookie cutter games with little difference with each one and call it a day.

Just my 2 pence.

From iron, cometh strength. From strength, cometh will. From will, cometh faith. From faith, cometh honour. From honour, cometh iron. This is the Unbreakable Litany, and may it forever be so.

Dark Crusade was the best Dawn of War game.

Dawn of War 2 kicks ass, but in a much different way. You can't really compare the two as 'strategy' games.

I prefer DoW2. It just feels like it's more in line with the fluff. No building of bases, no resources to collect (in any form).

That said DoW had an epic storyline. WA had some great missions as well. Dark Crusade had some cool features.

Firestorm of Kronos is cool, but some of the things added in are not needed. I played it and didn't like a lot of the gameplay changes. Graphic changes? Amazing.

My vote also goes to Firestorm over Kronus powered DC. No other strategy game (except maybe civ4 and rome:total war) comes close to being as awesome.


I have recently started a new Blog. I would really appreciate it if you would LOOK AT IT

...How do you build units without gathering resources? Cause last I checked, the becons give you resources.


The best DoW game is the original.

For mod; it's hands down FoK. The guys that made it are gods...
