I hated dark crusade and soulstorm (haven't played it but its the same) campaign so boring. Loved the campain of the first and winter assault. Wonder if they will ever come back to the blood raveans since the end was a bit of a cliff hanger!

The only thing I liked about dark crusade was the RPG element to it, upgrading your general

I was a bit dissapointed on how many guardsmen you could have personally think you should of been able to have more.

Necrons was great on how they worked thought it was good that you could keep producing warriors like that. Also like the fact you could move your base if you get a relic!

I really enjoyed the DoW games (Yes all of them). Soulstorm I thought was particularly cool, because it included an army that Games Workshop themselves seem to have lost interest in (Dark Eldar). The balance between the races in Particular is really well done, considering how many there are but as is the case with most, I found the campaigns in DC and SS to get boring rather quick, with the exception of the HQ Missions.

As for the Voice acting, I didn't find it too bad, except for SoB and Chaos in SS.

Worst thing about the Dow game is relics lacklustre support for the game. The recent 'hotfix' being a prime example. The games still broke, automatch is a joke and the top players are dwindling more and more because of it.

Best thing about it, is it is the best RTS ive played, the setting is a lot to do with it, but ive had some serious fun over the years playing with clanmates.

What are people complaining about the campaign for. And I'm not sure if you realised, but you do play as the Blood Ravens in DC, not sure about soul-storm though. The campaign is genius, the amount of actual programming required to pull that off compared to the first two. Not to mention the fact that it gives you so much more freedom to determine how you play your army.

My only real bitch is the fact that if you wait too long, the enemy simply overwhelms you. you don't just have the occasional hit and run attack or staged swarms. They simply generate too many units. I swear i could not build as many units as the enemy gets if i was playing, its ridiculous.

Dont think ive ever touched the Campaigns, having played online i dont think I'll ever be content with SP again, no ai can match playing another guy online. With regards rts anyway, SP of COD4 was great.

I used to love DoW, but then I played Company of Heroes. Then it all changed.
Now the gameplay feels lacklustre and fairly devoid of tactics...just build up a large army.
It was entertaing, but tedious after a while.
I want DoW2 to come now, and I want Kmod for it NOW.

i really dont like the way they cap certian units or make them take up so much squad cap they arent worth bothering with - it doesnt make the game any more balanced or realistic.

leman russes are worth 5 and they arent even that good really, i want more than two for fucks sake. same with kaskrin and landraiders.

>> i strongly agree wi you on this. I never play DOW any more cos I've got COHs. By far a better game in all aspects. Sisters are pretty mean in Soulstorm though.
