Kotaku: Dawn Of War II Review: Once More, With Tyranids

Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War was a big hit. Relic's next game, Company of Heroes, was even better. So the company's next game, Dawn of War II, will continue the trend, yes?

Sort of.

Fans of Relic's previous two games will be surprised to find that Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War II bears little resemblance to either. Where Dawn of War shot for Warhammer's sense of epic warfare and came up short, this game goes in the opposite direction, forgoing scale for intimacy as you find yourself in command of an army of...eleven men.

Which is tiny. Teeny tiny. Definitely not the sort of thing you expect from a real-time strategy game. Which is lucky, then, because Dawn of War II isn't really a real-time strategy game. Least, not one like you've ever seen before.

The story is too old to be commented.
