Developer: Relic Entertainment
I couldn’t really tell you why I wanted to originally pick up this game. The only time I ever played the original Dawn of War was back when it first released and they had a demo. Furthermore, I was so flabbergasted by the multiplayer beta they had up on Steam. The thing didn’t even have a proper tutorial! However, I found myself inexplicably drawn to Dawn of War II and could not resist it’s primal pull. I’ve always kind of had a dirty admiration and longing to play me some real time strategy games, and even have that same longing to play the actual tabletop version of Warhammer. My issue is that I could never really get into base building for digital RTS’ and I didn’t have the time and patience to build and paint an army for the tabletop game.
Enter the delicious soup that is Warhammer 40k: Dawn of War 2. This game is part RTS, part tactical RPG, part Diablo, and completely dope.
