Anyone played this game or it's newest expansion?

How does it compare to C&C Generals Zero Hour?

Haven't played the expansion yet. But have dabbled in Dawn of War. Graphics look prettier in DoW. But both DoW and C&C:ZH suffer from poor path finding algorithms. C&C:ZH relies heavily on armored units, whereas DoW relies heavily on infantry units. Also, C&C:ZH has a very high army size limit, while DoW I felt implemented a rather low army size limit for a game of its caliber. The individual units in DoW seemed "smarter" when responding to an attack than C&C:ZH units.

Ultimately. . . for me, not having large numbers of units to massacre the opposing force with dims the pleasure of playing DoW. . .

DoW is my favorite RTS since GZH. Totally different flavor though. C&C is clean and shiny modern warfare, where as DoW is post apocalyptic with heavy religious undertones. Very fun.

I half heartedly hoped you were asking about he Warhammer 40K tabletop game. :D

I agree with Agro...wicked good game, IMHO. VERY true to the actual tabletop game...and a LOT less expensive.
