Dawn of war and Company of heroes are similar in some ways but still fun to play. Metro is really great. there are a lot of interesting ideas and the atmosphere is really amazing ! Saint Row 2 is considered to be the best and Red faction guerilla is an open world sandbox which allow you to play with physics and destruction. In my opinion, this is a great bundle as these 5 games are really great.

Metro is a very atmospheric post-apocalyptic FPS set mostly in the Moscow underground, but you do occasionally come up to the surface. The game's presentation is top-notch and the gameplay is quite good too. Worth it for $5.

Dawn of War II is a squad based RTS/Tactics game. The game is great even for those who aren't normally into strategy games since it's not really a game about base-building, but more about getting your hero and troops to accomplish different objectives.

Company of Heroes is an extremely well-received RTS. Again, it's less to do with base building than with tactics - finding cover, using unit abilities, flanking, and careful planning is crucial to success. It's a game you NEED to play if you enjoy RTS or WWII games in general.

Saints Row 2 is a GTA-like sandbox game, but it's a little more fun in the sense that you can go absolutely crazy in that game. It's a game where reality is thrown out the window and you're encouraged to embrace your destructive side. Awesome game for anyone who likes to free-roam.

Lastly, Red Faction Guerrilla is another game where you can free-roam and cause all kinds of havoc, but this one isn't nearly as crazy as SR2, and is slightly more realistic. It's really fun to take down buildings in that game though, but may feel a little repetitive.

TL;DR: BUY THIS PACK.

Great Pack

5 great games , hours and hours of fun , but there is some problems like the horrible DRM that is GFWL . I cant play online in Warhammer and Red Faction because of that and its a bit bad cause I wasted my money and I wanted to play online. But the single player campaign is enjoyable for all of them , so we cant put the multiplayer apart.

All the games on this pack are great games.Metro 2033 is the best, a great fps with a great story.Warhammer 40000 is a good and solid rts,like Company of Heroes,probably the best second world war RTS .Saint's Row 2 and Red Faction Guerrilla are two sandbox funny games:destruction is the key here. Buy this because the price for all games is very low.Great pack.

Not worth it

Vercinger | Sept. 13, 2012 | See all Vercinger's reviews »

This pack seems great value at first, but it fails to mention something extremely important: The Steam versions of Dawn of War II and Red Faction Guerrilla require Games For Windows Live to run. While both games are worth playing, this horrible DRM that they come bundled with completely ruins the experience. Aside from its vast amount of bugs that have remained unaddressed for years, GFWL also limits the number of times you can install the games. After the install limit is reached, the game has to be re-purchased.

So, with those 2 games rendered unusable due to DRM, what are we left with?

Saints Row 2 for the PC is an unplayable mess that you'd be better off avoiding. Apparently THQ decided they didn't need to bother making a proper port, and could just get sales from the hype or something. This behavior should never, ever be rewarded.

The last 2 games somewhat redeem this pack. Both Metro and Company of Heroes (especially CoH) are great games, definitely worth buying. However, not in this pack. You could easily get them at a much lower price separately.

Overall, there's no sense in buying this pack. Unless you're feeling particularly adventurous and have enough free time to deal with GFWL support. They like telling you to update your Xbox 360's firmware when you ask them how to solve a problem with your PC game.

A pack full of fantastic games

The THQ 5 pack is a collection of 5 good games released in this years: _Metro 2033 is a linear FPS where you must try to survive to hordes of monster and human enemies to save your home. The game has a very good atmosphere and it's quite hard, because you have really few resources and ammunition, so you must always think before shooting and save ammos _Warhammer 4000 Dawn of War 2 is a particular RTS with a few RPG elements, where you command 4 or 5 squad of space marines, each one with particular abilities. The game is good especially in multiplayer, while the dynamic campaign is single player is a bit repetitive _Company of Heroes is one of the best RTS released in the last years and it's similar to Dawn of War 2: you don't have to command a big number of soldiers and you must not collect resources like in old style RTS In the mission of the campaign you must in general conquer and defend some territories in the map. _Saints Row 2 is a free roaming characterized by funny characters and strange weapons and vehicles. The story and the mission are interesting. The only defect of the game is the graphic, really poor and not optimized on PC. _Red Faction Guerrilla is an other free roaming characterized by a good physic engine that allow you to destroy buildings in a realistic way. An other good game, but the mission after a while will become a bit repetitive.

Extremely cheap.

Blackop2 | Sept. 13, 2012 | See all Blackop2's reviews »

Pick it up now! If you only own one or two of them its worth the price. I used a voucher and got em for 9$. That is a massive steal for these AAA games. All of them are worth the money, if you can run Saints Row 2 without any problems then it is even more worth the money, but due to its horrible optimization its the ONLY reason this pack is not 100. I suggest NOT waiting and buy it now!

Great Deal

Solictice | Sept. 13, 2012 | See all Solictice's reviews »

Bought this pack while it was 50% cheaper, and then added the 25% coupon. So only €9 for 5 great games!

Metro 2033 has been on my want to play list for ages. The graphics and atmosphere are amazing. 8/10

Saints Row 2 was one of my favourite xbox360 games, and felt much more like San Andreas then GTAIV did. Want to run around in a mankini while causing total mayhem? Go ahead, you can do it. 8/10

Company Of Heroes has to be my favourite RTS ever. Great graphics when it was released, and up to today it's still pretty good for a RTS. Gameplay wise it's stunning, it's not a nobrain farming RTS. You have to capture points to increase the unit cap, and defend these points. 9.5/10

Great price for a great pack

StewartX | July 31, 2012 | See all StewartX's reviews »

Very quick review as it is a multipack. This is an excellent price for 5 great games.

Metro 2033: Great game set in a post-nuclear future. FPS and a lot of fun. Graphics: 8/10 Gameplay: 7/10 Story: 6/10 Multiplayer: No

Warhammer 40,000 - Dawn of war II: RTS game, very different to the original DoW style of RTS. Graphics: 7/10 Gameplay: 7/10 Story: 7/10 Multiplayer: Yes and Coop as well.

Company of Heroes: Squad based RTS (So an RTS with limited resources and no "farming") Graphics: 7/10 Gameplay: 7/10 Story: 5/10 Multiplayer: Yes

Saints Row 2: Whacky GTA style game, however very poorly coded onto PC (Was a console game) and has some serious issues with windows 7. Graphics: 5/10 Gameplay: 9/10 Story: 5/10 Multiplayer: No

Red Faction: Guerilla: In my opinion this is the best game of the pack, great fun FPS/GTA style game with destructible buildings. Highly recommended! Graphics: 8/10 Gameplay: 9/10 Story: 8/10 Multiplayer: Yes

Epic pack

ruready12 | May 23, 2012 | See all ruready12's reviews »

All 5 games are completely amazing. Metro 2033 has amazing graphics and great gameplay that feels like a mix of F.E.A.R and Battlefield into a new and unique concept. Red Faction: Guerilla is a great fast-paced game similiar to the Gears of War series. The graphics in Red Faction: Guerilla are great too and with low system requirements most modern-day computers from 2008+ can play it! Company of Heroes is a great Strategy game that changes the way you think about RTS"s once you play it. The graphics are not amazing but that's a good thing for low-end computers. Warhammer 40,000 - Dawn of war II is a great strategy game with pretty good graphics for the time it was made and has low system requirements which, once again, helps with old computers. Saints Row 2 is a great Third Person Open-World sandbox game with bunches of things to do and many humerous aspects to it. This pack is a great deal and I would recommend it to anyone!
