Dawn of War II (DoW2) is a highly entertaining strategy game. Unlike most strategy games however, there is no base -building or resource gathering, rather the game focuses only on the battle and the violence. It is very violent for a strategy game, showing blood and dismembered arms and legs as well as arm-less and leg-less torsos. The game's story also allows you to equip your squads with a variety of weapons, some quite brutal; chainswords, flamethrowers, etc.
The characters solve the problem presented them through violence, hence they are not good role models. They also uses phrases such as ``Kill the greenskins`` etc.
I marked it as educational because it is a strategy game that requires that you think and use your mind to outwit your opponents (whether human or AI).
One other highlight is the campaign which can be played through entirely with a friend. A strategy game with a co-op campaign! That is awesome!
Overall a great game for strategy and action game fans alike, it will keep you entertained for hours.
