Warhammer 40 000 dawn of war 2

The enemies of the Emperor fear many things.
They fear discovery, defeat, despair and death.
Yet there is one thing they fear above all others.
They fear the wrath of the Space Marines!

the noble Space Marine
 Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II is a real-time strategy/tactical role-playing video game developed by Relic Entertainment and published by THQ for Microsoft Windows based on the fictional Warhammer 40,000 universe. It is the sequel to the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War video game series. Dawn of War II was released in North America on February 19, 2009 and in Europe on February 20, 2009.

My first thought in this game.... HOLY SHIT.... Yeah. I am a Warhammer 40 000 fan. I always played the first game ( winter assault, dark crusade, soulstorm) and I want MORE! And finally the sequel have come. And you know what? It is so darn good....
Gwaaarghhh!!!!! Tyranids!!!!!!
Sadly, there is only 4 faction in this game, The noble Space Marine, The mystical Eldar, The violent Orks and The devourer Tyranids. But the good thing is, each of the faction is so fantastic. Each one have a different style to play, you may use the tactically space marine or for rusher you can use the Tyranids. There is also a big change on the gameplay. Instead of base building like the original one, you have now one buliding that built all of your unit. Then there is the cover system, the time when your units can take cover on and kill the nasty enemy trying to shoot you down.

Whos the daddy now! Take this!!!
 The campaign is about The Tyranid invasion on Aurelia sub-sector. The first enemy you will be encountering will be the Orks. After that there will be a story about the Eldar plot and the Tyranids invasion. The campaign is surprisingly non-linear. You can choose your own mission and equip your own wargear. It is pretty fun to play... exspecially if you love the vast story on Warhammer 40 000 world.

And then come the sequel....

So it was in the beginning; so ever it shall be.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II – Chaos Rising is a real-time strategy video game developed by Relic Entertainment and published by THQ, and the sequel expansion of Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II. The game was released on March 11, 2010 for Games for Windows.
Chaos Space Marines are introduced in the game and all the races in the previous game (Space Marines, Eldar, Orks and Tyranids) were given new units.
The game predominantly takes place on the ice-covered home-world of the Blood Ravens, Aurelia. Gabriel Angelos explains Aurelia was lost to the Warp for thousands of years, but has now reappeared along with an active Blood Ravens' beacon.

you think you can defeat me, huh? Taste this!
 Chaos is here... and ready to burn this world into ashes.... The sequel for this game is sooo... ULTRA HOLY SHIT!!! Chaos Space Marine has been added to the game, and finally the war between the loyal and the traitor rages on...

There are some added units, such as the psyker Librarian, the tough Wraithguard and the sneaky genestealer. There are also some new maps faor the Skirmish, and all was so darn good. The Caimpaign? Fantastic. It mainly focuses on the Chaos Uprising on Aurelia sub-sector. A new planet, Aurelia, suddenly re-emerged from the warp storm and has lured the Blood Raven into it. It is now the battle between the loyal and the heretic, as war rages on... One of the unique system introduced is the corruption system, where you can choose between being loyal to the emperor, or join the powerful forces of darkness. The corruption system is pretty cool, you are lured to join chaos eventhough you want to stay loyal. It is irresistable.
Urghh.... Is that my innards? cool...
Once the player reaches the end of the game, it gives out five endings that the player may receive depending on the player's redemption and corruption levels. And the ending is not completed too... there will be more! Overall, this is a great expansion, for having Chaos for a total chaos in this Chaotic game.

Suddenly, there is another expansion, Retribution...

Dawn Of War II: Retribution is the second stand-alone expansion to the Dawn Of War II series. The single player campaign will be playable for races other than The Space Marines. As of October 2010, the Orks have been announced as playable races in single-player. It will also reintroduce base building to some degree. An additional playable race will be included, but has not yet been announced. There are speculations that the new playable race would be Imperial Guard or the Inquisition, due to the Inquisition triple lined "I" used in the word "Retribution" in the game trailer. The Eldar have also recently been announced as a playable race in single player. Eldar worriors in the colours of cratworld Alaitoc were shown to be fighting the Black Legion. The motives of the Eldar and the identities of their leaders is currently unknown.

Waaaaghhh!!!!!!!!! Me will come nex to dertroy all puny humies!!!!

The next expansion, Retribution is actually coming on March 2011. I will wait, "No Fear! No Pity! NO REMORSE!"
