The only bad I see so far is the fact that they have shown only 2 races so far and that will suck hard. I won't buy it until they put in the Tau.

I really think it will be good, because now they won't make everything, spam.

I think it is great that they are using the CoH engine.But i just hope they include the imperial guard.

first impressions? WTF? we have nothing to go on! we have some not so revealing screenshots and 2 15 or so second long clips of video that may be cut scene for all we know. We still haven't had a confermation on what they ment with the 6 squads comment. Sure, they probably ment 6 tac squads and you have other options. But, do we know that for sure? Heck for all we know this is going to get shelved for 6 or 7 years. Duke Nukem Forever had more screens and what not and it has been 10+ years for it and gone through a handfull of engine changes. I think "first imprssions" at this point it jumping the gun more than a little. Need I point out Time Shift? It had a demo release and they still took it back to the drawing boards and redid it (for the worst from the sounds of it.)

yeah iv'e read some stuff, and it sounds terrible it's just company of heroes, it uses the same engine and its following the same gameplay. DOW was original it had it's own style and now they are just making company of heroes in power armour. i'm not impressed, relic dropped the ball and im afraid I probably won't bother with this game.

Dude, forget CoH. This is DoW we're talking about, and so far it looks off the charts.

 #9 - Posted by: TDATL (Member) on 05-01-2008 at 16:34
"and so far it looks off the charts." and you gathered this from three screen shots and two clips of animation that show NOTHING of gameplay.

TDATL must be vying for Starcraft 2. I bet you think its going to be better than DOW 2 is that it? Trying to put down the awesomeness that is DOW 2??? rofl-lmao. IMO, you have a small point, but that doesnt mean anything. first impressions can and ARE made over the smallest of pictures, articles or videos. thats why they are FIRST IMPRESSIONS. Of course we know there'll be more to come, but for now, we are IMPRESSED (or those of us that voted awesome). It makes no difference that theres very little info because its a FIRST IMPRESSION. like, "huh, that looks pretty sick", or "that looks awesome". we arent at the stage to begin commenting on gameplay, so keep those feelings of yours to yourself for just a while longer. i know we're all dying to know how DOW II is gonna show up. GOD. I. CANNOT. WAIT. :thumbsup: :rock: :mepimp: and we all know SC 2's gonna suck hard compared to DOW.

The words of a fanboy. They're both going to be different games, based on different design briefs. Suggesting that one is going to be superior to the other is a sign of ignorance. It's like comparing a Dodge Charger to a Ford Mustang. Two different classes of car. Dawn Of War 2 and StarCraft 2 are likewise two different classes of strategy game. There's only one person trying to stir up a war between two communities, and that's you. Everyone else should be commended for not slinking into such a petty, childish, "my game's e-peen is bigger than your game's e-peen" mentality.

[quote]and you gathered this from three screen shots and two clips of animation[/quote] Dude, it's not like I based my opinion entirely on screenshots and previews, so don't jump to conclusions.

 #13 - Posted by: Zealot2021 (Member) on 05-01-2008 at 21:21
Ah Kouen, can i be blamed for believing a Dodge Charger is more sexy than a Ford Mustang? that keeps them in the same class now doesnt it? And therefore, my assumptions regarding SC 2 and DOW 2 are strictly aesthetic and as you so eloquently put it, "fan-boy"ish--and of course, are legit. :p Regardless, i will NOT allow myself to be considered the "childish" antagonist of the community. I am entitled to my own opinion, especially one so superficial as "SC 2's gonna suck hard", and you should take the time to ignore so small a statement, since the vast majority of my comment was discussing "first impressions" and why i found it pointless to complain about what people think. just as i'm not complaining, just pointing flaws in your complaint. :borg: Slinking? i think i was pretty in-the-open in my topics. and it was very apparent to me that i was merely joking with TDATL. But perhaps its just me :mepimp:

Uhm... After only 3 screenshots and a 44 seconds Teaser I admit I'm waiting for next Spring with childish anticipation, but maybe it's a little too early to fall victim of entusiasm.. SS is nothing more than I expected, but in my opinion it could he handled MUCH MUCH MUCH better: its graphics are as good as the medium level of the DoW series, but the rest of it shows an allarming degree of decadence. Let's see if DoW2 will be able to contrast this trend. Starcraft 2 is like Michelle Pfeiffer, while DoW2 is probably going to resemble Jessica Alba: personally my intention is to have fun with both of them.. You fanboys take care of your joystick while I play, uh? :cool:

Dude. You didn't really think people would vote bad, right ?

 #16 - Posted by: HappyMrAdrian (Member) on 05-02-2008 at 04:05
The only reason I don't think it's 'awesome' is because there is nothing to for me to get impressions on. I read the PC gamer article and in all honesty it doesn't look that incredible, mostly because it's so early in development and so its hard for relic to show anything 'new' if its not set in concrete.
