    i think the single player is as good if not better than company of heroes. not finished the single player yet...taking my time killing every last monster.

    the diff between strategy and tactics argument is very pedantic and i'd say there are both in the game.

    def recommended to all. i'd like to play as the orcs/eldar in single player campaign but so far think its just space marines unless somethings unlocked on completion..

    In a way i suppose but DoWII doesn't have you moving or planning large anythings.

    I'm absolutely loving the SP campaign... though traveling between worlds so frequently doesn't make a whole lot of sense in the fluff, it's still awesome. Of course there's the added bit of "if you dont play Warhammer this is what a Tyranid is" sorta stuff but that's ok. Good that they added it so people who don't really know what Warhammer is can understand a bit more.

    Sadly they dont explain how Space Marines are 7 foot tall super humans with 3 lungs, 2 hearts, acidic saliva and all sorts of other genetic enhancements. Oh well, can't have it all, can we ;)

    I just played some co-op with my buddy and I must say it is implemented very well and enhances the experience quite a bit! I suggest everyone gives it a shot :D

    Read the 'Introduction' in the Game Manual if you bought the game box! ;) Not gonna type it all because I can't be arsed but here is a snippet:

    By His will do vast armies of loyal, genetically perfected and lethal warriors known as the Space Marines accomplish his merciless bidding. Without him and the Space Marines, the Imperium of Man would crumble to the many scourges assailing it.

    That's the reason I never will and never did buy any games that runs on steam, FORCES you to register/validate/activate your "product" via steam just to even play the damn thing I payed for.

    So much respect to the creators of old games like UT GOTY, Rogue Spear, Soldier Of Fortune and thousands of other developers that aren't as dictatorial and care about the customer, F--- steam and developers that are for it.
