Reviews for Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War II: Retribution
Highly Recommended!Plasros | June 19, 2013 | See all Plasros's reviews »
Retribution adds a lot to the already exisiting multiplayer in the form of a new faction, new units and overall improved balance. On the cost of this, the single player takes a large hit and is reduced from a story driven tale of heroics, down to simple cookie cutter maps with loot, where the story is just down right bad. But, this is okay. The game instead turns the focus to multiplayer (and the developers are currently busy balancing and tweaking further to make the game better), where Starcraft 2 revolves around a lot of macro-management, Retribution takes that entire part away and fully embraces a focus on micro-management, where you use few units to accomplish great tasks. I won't lie, from a difficulty point of view, this game is a lot easier than other RTS' in multiplayer as soon as you get used to it. However, up until then, you will be punished a lot for mistakes. Overall: Great multiplayer game, great soundtrack, good graphics and well made. + the developers are still working to make it better, which is always a plus
A good strategy gameCavalieroscuro | June 18, 2013 | See all Cavalieroscuro's reviews »
Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War II: Retribution is a good strategy game, branded with the Warhammer franchise. The story is nice, the graphics good, and it has a campaign with all six races.
