Ha ha ha yeah, truth be told I'm kind of surprised


Working on the Tyranid campaign now. Its been fairly good so far. I would just like to say too that the last battle for SM campaign was cake.

Couldn't agree more. I personally loved them all. Havent finish Chaos Rising yet, but I have played a few of the Nid and Chaos missions so far. I must say, I love the direction they went with the Hive Mind. That bastard actually sounds scary now!

I just finished the Chaos Campaign on normal and it is actually completely viable to just use your four heroes and spend all your resources on upgrading them. I did this for most levels and it was not only fun but it worked quite well. I also have to say that the mission where your trying to escape the planet when exterminatus is called in is awesome, as is the cut scene that follows.

Praise the sun!

I expected campaign to last more. Started it this morning and finished it with space marines. just a moments ago(wasn't playing all time ofc).It was enjoyable, though not as good as original DOW2 and Chaos rising.I just spammed terminators in later levels and used heroes except cyrus, i ditched him for assault termies as soon i got honour guard. I have also used Venerated dread.Campaign is ok, but i miss discussion between characters etc between missions. But i guess they couldn't make that much material and story with 6 races. Did first mission with Tyranids, it looks fun with tons of units, though it seems campaign and objectives are same and only enemies are different between races. Is that true?

I may get this game IF Gabriel has sexy voice back. I've forgotten how many times I wanked over that Sean Connery-esque voice. It was like liquid honeyed gold pouring in my ears.

If you mean his original voice then yeah he has it back.

Not sold on the Nid campaign yet but I just started it. So far I can only upgrade the Tyrant, nothing else.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

I just finished it and basically the hive tyrant is the only hero that you get but you can choose the bonus things at the end of levels to upgrade your other units.

I have to say that the Nids are pretty awesome. Nothing like swarming the enemies with tons of little nasty bugs cutting up the enemy

Finished Space Marine campaign, ending is excellent. And the game's final boss is tough, especially on hard difficulty, but very fun. Now onto Chaos campaign.
