Picked it up this weekend- the game is exactly what is advertised. If you are more expecting more that what is in the gameplay videos you will be disappointed.

It delivers the goods but I do disagree with the "Very positive" Steam rating. The missions are repetitive and the U.I./menu system is pretty barebones. With that said, I would say it is worth $15 but not the full $30.

Glad someone started a thread on this! I was wondering as well

I did pick up the (obviously? re-released) bundle of Dawn of War and Goty ed and Space Marines - the latter of which I'm terrible at, because it's twitchy and the controls are annoying for a computer keyboard/mouse, I expect they're better on a controller. The former are RTS C&C types (which I LOVE).

Just mentioning in case anyone is also looking at said bundle, if it goes on sale again. The game play of SM is really really cool, but hard (for me) and the graphics are not nearly as bad as the cutscenes from the RTS Dawn of War versions (OMG Why did they bother?! It's HORRID!)

And so far the RTS is pretty basic, but fun. I mean if you're really into base building like I am, it's a hellova lotta fun, but so far it's been very simplistic. Like I said, C&C just with a 40k twist.

Has anyone tried Man 'O War Corsair? I know Skaven aren't playable sadly (at least in the mode I'd play in) - or I'd buy it in a heartbeat. It sounds like a lot of fun, though apparently the ship to ship melee is still teh suq.

Sadly none of these live up to Mordheim - that game is freak in awesome sauce. Love it so much.

I also have Talisman: Horus Heresy which might also be more fun if I were to play vs another player I guess, instead of the computer... I'm not actually that competitive tho so it was fun for one go but honestly hardly difficult to win. Still it tells a good story and if you get it on sale, it's worth a go.

Whaaaaat? The cutscenes of DoW 1 might be graphically ugly, but these are THE MOST FUNNY I'VE EVER WATCHED!!! Lord Bale + Sindri Myr and Gorgutz Ead Unta are just hilarious!

Lord Bale: *snort* "The thought of kooow-tooowing to these creaturesss disssgust me!"
Sindri Myr: "The Orks are a tool... nothing more. And a quite effective one, I might add."
Lord Bale: "Perhapssss... *snort* But I dislike providing such unnn-predictable aliens with our own weaponryyy!"
Sindri Myr condescending and mocking: "Lord Bale! Orks are not unpredictable... Quite the contrary! You can rely on them to turn against you, but they will honour our agreement as long as you provide them with enemies to satiate... their battlelussst!"
Lord Bale: "If we intimidated them into doing our bidding... SHOW THEM OUR STREEENGTH!!! *snort* They would take pause before betraying usssss!
Sindri Myr even more condescending: "You cannot intimidate something that knows no feaaar! Trouble yourself no longer with the Orks! We will have what we're coming for and be gone before they finish the Imperials and turn on us...

Or even better Gorgutz quote:

These are among the most hilariously memorable cutscenes in the history of video games!

I couldn't get down with the camera. Way too close to the action for me. Need to be able to zoom out to take in the whole battlefield to enjoy a PC strategy game.
