Ten thousand years have passed since the treasonous acts
of Chaos toppled the Golden Age of mankind. Fires burn brightly
throughout the galaxies, illuminating carnage and slaughter
as mankind defends itself from ancient enemies. Hardened forces
collide with one goal in mind, the complete extermination
of their opposition. Control one of four unique races in head-to-head
or co-operative multiplayer action, where faith, skill, and
strategy are requisites in ruling the universes...
40,000: Dawn of War is a science fiction real-time strategy
(RTS) game set in the violent, post-apocalyptic universe of
the 41st Millennium. Command hardened troops, deadly vehicles
and high tech weaponry with one goal in mind, the complete
extermination of the opposition. Whether you lead humanity's
finest - the Space Marines, the diabolic and villainous traitors
of man - the Chaos Space Marines, the brutal and savage beasts
- the Orks, or the psychic and technologically advanced alien
warriors - the Eldar, you control the action and the fate
of your race!
this is more like it. An RTS game with some real clout. Playing
in single player mode is not what this game is designed for.
However, before you tackle the realms of online gaming (or
network play for that matter) you are going to need to play
single player campaigns in order to work out the strengths
and weaknesses of each race. Sadly though, Relic don't provide
a campaign for the Elder race. This is by far the most complexed
race in the game and it would have been really handy to be
able to give them a full workout before battling online as
them, or against them.
not that this game does anything ground breakingly different
from the masses of other RTS games on the market, it's just
that what it does it does with style. Attention to detail
is breathtaking - the backgrounds, the individual races and
the battles have all been beautifully realised. It was only
really a few of the voice actors and some of the cut sequences
which let this game down in any respect.
of War will not only appeal to those single guys who spend
hours painting little lead figures and battling each other
in die throwing tournaments, it will also drag in those that
want a good, solid RTS with some incredible graphics. Dawn
of War proves that Warhammer is not just for anoraks.
