Retribution

Hey all just curious to see how many have tried out the newest Dawn of War II game. Just got it today myself and find it to be pretty freaking sweet (even though I have yet to play anyone other the Space Marines) Just curious to see what you all think of it.

i've got DoW 2 gold, which is DoW 2 and chaos rising, it is a pretty sweet game
steam really fucks you over, unless you want to spend hours and hours downloading updates, i'd recommend using steam in offline mode
rather limited, in the fact that there's just the one campaign.

i like it anyway

I like DoW2 with both Chaos Rising as well as the original. The newest one Retribution is kind of flaky at the moment. But I'm also only playing Space Marines so I am interested to see what happens.

Yeah I know I am pretty interested in trying the other campaigns as well. The SM one is a lot of fun and I like that I can field almost all terminators as well because there is nothing like rampaging around with termies using assault cannons!

The only thing I dislike about it is the fact that they moved away from the tighter focus of having just four units. Now you start with four and can build more. It is cool enough and certainly not enough for me to dislike the game but I admit I preferred the way it worked before. On the other hand this one does allow you to use tanks and doesn't limit you to the same 4-5 units throughout the game.

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?

Being drawn in by spoilers I have read the plot for the Space Marine campaign, or at least how it ends, and I was shocked. I never thought it would happen, it was always in the air but I thought that this particular event would never actually come to pass.
