I love the 40k Atmosphere much more and DoW2 is one of my favorite games this gen. Starcraft never really interested me mostly because of 40k lol. Tyranids rape zergs everytime.
I got into the first starcraft a little bit, but the first Dawn of War pwned it so bad.
I don't think Starcraft 2 comes close, either.
Havn't played RTS games for a long time, none have interested me. But nowi have played through the starcraft 2 single player, it was great, but short. Probably the shortest game i have played through. I will try this Dawn of war.
Never played Starcraft. My fav RTS is Company of Heroes. I was tempted to buy Starcraft at one point to see what all the hype was about, but I bought Dawn of war 1 & 2 the other day in the steam sale and now I have no intention of buying Starcraft at all. Relic FTW.
I am biased because I have only played the demo for Starcraft II but I just like DOW II better.
DoW easily. I think I broke either 400 or 500 total plays in DoW; the highest of any RTS I've played. I still recall certain MP matches where our team (2v2) nearly fall but somehow rise and pull a victory. I remember doing a 1v1 on a tiny map as IG vs Chaos...that was a good match that I barely won. These matches had to have taken place a good 3+ years ago too.
DoW II is amazing just for the "arena" mini game. I'll give SC II credit for a better campaign, but for me that's about where it ends.
dow are the best games specialy dow retribution and the others
