The Dawn of War series from Relic Entertainment was a 40K fan's dream game – it was incredibly thematic, fast paced, easy to control, and terribly violent. As the series came to a close with the release of Soulstorm, it was clear that it had run its course – it was time for something new. Enter Dawn of War II.
What is exciting about this sequel is that it is in no way a rehash of the first game. It would have surprised no one if Relic had simply updated the graphics, tossed in a few new features and sat back and collected a paycheck. This is an entirely new game with a specific focus…with new graphics and some new features.
