This game is definitely on the list of "money well spent" I bought this game a couple of months ago now along with it's other Dawn of War brothers (or sisters) on sale for little under £8, the game itself is £9.99 and this isn't a bad thing, this game is worth that money and the time not knowing anythign about the game other than it is Warhammer I didn't know what a steal it was...seriously it is pretty much theft. I'm turning myself into the police as we speak. The campaign to this game reminds me that of Star Wars Battlefront II with a map segregated into sections owned by the different armies. However, there is not the basic "GOOD VS EVIL" "REPUBLIC VS SITH" "REBELS VS EMPIRE" that Battlefront II gives you on its plate. Nope. In this game's campaign you can play as the Following:
1). Blood Ravens (Space Marine chapter)
2). Word Bearers (Chaos Space Marine chapter)
3). Imperial Guard ( Now Called Astra Millitarium)
4).Orks (Not a spelling error)
5.) Tau (They have a lot of battle suit mech things)
6.) Eldar (Elves...but in space)
7.) Necrons (The ones featured on the art)
During the campaign your goal is a simple murder everyone else and rule the planet, average day in the Warhammer 40k Universe. You move and conquer enemy territory each turn, each territory giving you a bonus, you can upgrade your leader, making him a bigger badass and get bonuses to take into every battle with you. Each army plays differently and to go in that for you detail wise would lead on until 2016 so I won't do that but it is a good way of doing it as that is how the armies in actual 40k work all of them unique. to learn about what army to go in the game I would read up on the ones listed or even just look at them in game on like google or whatever and see which ones look the coolest, it is by fare the most efficient way to do it if you don't know the universe too well. The multiplayer as much as I have done is decent also as you don't have to stick to the colour schemes provided in the campaign and make your own or use the other ones in the game provided
However you must have the other Dawn of War games installed to play as the certain factions online which is honestly a terrible thing for them to do so if you like say Chaos Space Marines, You would need to add the original Dawn of War to use them in multiplayer so don't believe the notice if that is the case.
