About

Another game in the Warhammer universe which seeks to replicate the success of the legendary Dawn War released back in the 2000s. Dawn of War II Retribution is a standalone expansion pack that features new faction: the Imperial Guard.

The game is set in the fictional universe of Warhammer known for its factions and gore visuals. In this expansion, there are new campaigns for all game races. The action takes place in the Sub-sector Aurelia 10 years after the last installment in the series.
The developers tried to re-invent the genre of RTS, adding elements of the popular MOBA genre. The player gains control over a squad of units led by a hero and completes missions at different locations in the game’s universe. Hero levels up gather items of different rarity, learns new skills and abilities to overtop enemies and bosses.

Base building is still present in the game, albeit in a truncated form: in multiplayer, players must develop their outpost. The addition also adds a new hero to the roster and new enemy types to beat.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II: Retribution reviews and comments

Second stand alone and "extension" of dawn of War II, discover the sequel to dawn of War II and chaos rising with map that transports you to areas already explored once again. If you're a fan, go ahead. Be careful, there are uncorrected recursive bugs.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War 2: The Game is the Hammer I've been for 11 Years Warhammer Fan mann has been in the Game vie Action Brutalizing Fights and Different Peoples The DLC are also very nice and the Maps in Multiplayer also bring a lot of Variety and also Different So game Types so for any Warhammer fan it's a must have the Game:)

For a fan it is a game not bad but there is too much DLC, no strategy more building to build, in any case it has good graphics and a multiplayer mode not bad even if the majority of the people who play are not French so to play one must play at 21H minimum when we finished the campaign, there is that the multiplayer has pumped x) but it's still going! That the empreur guides the developers for a better game!

A very good Real-time Strategy title. Campaign Excellent Gambar Though over time Some Monotonous as they Are peoples campaign very similar and the Successes are bugged in many Cases. In the most common, of course, is always Top and the Units are Again depicted Grandios although there are no more official Updates for the Game but there are hardly any Noticeable Mengel. My Conclusion: Every Warhammer fan will love these Game, those who are not sure to Just buy and play you will not regret it.

Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War 2-Retribution Retribution is a Compromise that works but doesn't matter as intrigued As the more complex predecessors. Per Detailed Unit models grandiose effects sharp Textures good Animations four difficulty levels simple standard real-time Control free saving boss Battles cons and Targets remain The same for each People to have a few dreary Environments for "Professionals" to easily moderate Cutscenes Key Assignment not changeable only 16 Missions of stupid Resource system ignores Resources

Good games that really respects the world of games workshop, multi-player mode well thought out, may not be enough cards available as well as the lack of several races of Warhammer 40k (Tau, Necrons, black Eldar...). And despite a range of races still quite extended the missions of the campaign remains the same except the dialogues, and a campaign mod in the way of the "total war" would be an interesting addition in the future. A big highlight is the army customization interface that allows to bring its personal touch and wears its colors during multi battles. In either a games with a correct lifespan and a campaign that remains well leads despite a lack of variety, a game has not missing for such a low cost.
