     One of the best deals around

    | | See all DevilMayCare's reviews (18)

    If you're thinking of getting this collection, then now is the time to do it at just £18!! Another great deal from Play.com.
    The games in this collection, although fairly similar, are all very enjoyable. I don't think it was until the second expansion, Dark Crusade, that Dawn of War took the biggest change in direction, with the single player game changing to a conquest campaign where you take over the world. Then in Soulstorm this expands to taking over several planets.
    The units are well designed and varied with each race, and each expansion adds new units to each faction. As well as adding whole new factions, such as the Tau and the Dark Eldars. As I already said, all the games are relatively similar, but there are enough additions to the gameplay with each installment so it never gets boring.
    The only problem with the collection is that there is very little advancement in terms of graphics. The same engine was used for each one and by the time Soulstorm came out, it really showed, especially considering that Dawn of War came out three years before Soulstorm.
    Another thing, you definitely don't have to play the Warhammer board game to enjoy these games. Personally, I think that the board game is actually kind of sad. I don't mean any offence but it just seems a waste to spend ridiculous amounts of money on little models then stand around playing a game you had to learn from a £20 book.
    Overall a great buy, Dawn of War is one of the best RTS's I've played. Although it doesn't have top end graphics like Company of Heroes or Universe at War, it is every bit as good in terms of playabilty, strategy and just general fun as any of the more recent RTS's to have come out.
    Highly recommended.

     Excellent gameplay, lots our hours worth, fantastic value

    Playing the games in chronological order of release tells an epic story and slowly builds up the number of units and races at your disposal until it obliterates all rivals (9 races and hundreds of units) to allow for a smoother learning curve.

    The graphics and animations are what set this apart, seeing your enemies units eviscerated in detail is just a gamer's delight.

    The gameplay is aggressive and passive, with turtling possible via Imperial Guard or be a harasser with Eldar or Tau early on.

    I have many hours playing this series of games and have been a very happy and satisfied customer!

    The simple answer is no, at least not until DOW 2

    The forthcoming Soulstorm judging by the demo more than matched the previous 3 games and will take the playable faction count to a whopping 9 races, representing huge value for money and masses of depth that comes in learning the strengthes and weaknesses of said factions.

    I have to admit I've only ever played as 5 of the original 7 factions from the original 3 games, I found the one I liked and stuck with it like alot of online players seem to do. Its speaks volumes though that a game that I've had for a very long time and have put in my fair share of hours has so much content that 2 of the in game factions have remained untouched.

    This is a no brainer purchase in my eyes, only thing is DOW is so popular that I forsee many already owning at least one DOW title in much the same vein as when they released the Orange Box. That said still a great package and a title which matches up to the other two RTS legends on PC, Company of Heroes and Supreme Commander by providing a more conventional real time strategy experience.

     Good offer and amazing games

    I hav most of the games but because im giving the other 3 to my cousin i decided to buy this hole pack and from wat i have played they are intense games, its a building game and it has amazing graphics for an RTS so yes for 4 of the games it should be worth more but i suppose this is just an amazing offer so i will buy this and im happy with the offer.

     Great box set - good value

    Definitely worth if you haven't bought or played DoW yet, or maybe only have the orig game. Be aware with Dark Crusade and Soulstorm, although they introduce new races, if you do not have the previous games like the original game and Winter Assault, you cannot play those races. When you enter/load each expansion, you will be asked for your keycodes to 'unlock' these other races.

    Buying this boxset will ensure you get all races, and weeks/months of play -- enjoy. DC allows the fight for one planet SS allows fighting for a whole system of planets.
