Here's A Real bargain if you're a Command & Conquer-style RTS fan, hankering for some good-looking, strategically untaxing mayhem.
Aged 18 months, Dawn Of War is still a looker, with its superbly detailed animations, excellent dialogue and voice-acting bringing the Warhammer universe to life like never before.
The gaineplay isn't quite so impressive, sticking to build and rush conventions, with only the territory-based resource gathering varying in any major way from the C&C mechanics of yore. Still, the pacey action and some beautifully imagined units make the repetition all worth while, as does the plot, which morphs from tepid to scorching in the first few levels. Dawn Of War is by no means a fan-boy game, and if you've never even heard of Warhammer 40,000 - more than possible if you didn't fritter away your youth loitering around Games Workshop - you'll still find it more of a blast than a satchel full of TNT.
