Very good game modelachking | Dec. 31, 2013 | See all lachking's reviews »
The last stand is an enjoyable multiplayer game mode for those that don't have the actual Dawn of War 2 Retribution game. In this game mode, 3 heroes defend an area and control points from waves of different enemies. You gain more points for surviving longer and killing more enemies. You will gain experience and unlock more items and abilities as you gain levels. There are many different items, but you can only have some selected at a time, so there is a good amount of replay value as you can try different item combinations. This is a very good standalone hero defence game with strong RPG elements.

If you don't have the main game, the Last Stand is the best game mode of Dawn of War II: Retribution.
The gameplay is very simple, three players will have to fight in arenas against waves of enemies like orcs, space marines, eldars, tyranids, the chaos army and more.
You have six heroes with a few items and weapons, but every time you level up, you will get another item that change a lot the way you play the character, getting the items for all characters can take hours so the replay value is very high for this mode, it has a lot of achievements too.
Even if the main game is a real time strategy game and you don't like those, this mode is worth it.
