Go Gaming Giant writes: "When I hear sequel in the gaming industry I can only think of one thing. Blowing the original game away and that's just what Dawn of War II set out to do here. Can RTS and RPG come together in one game?
Some of the changes that Dawn of War 2 makes are the elimination of base-building and adding in an amount of RPG. It's a hybrid between RPG and RTS, and it works well. Relic also added the Next Generation RTS Engine - Utilizing Relic's proprietary Essence Engine 2.0 to deliver cinematic visuals, detailed graphics & special effects. Achievements were also nice bonus for the hardcore gamers really into their gamer cards and points."
