Warhammer Universe

I love the Warhammer Universe, but am too spazzed out by most RTS games. I get all stressed out. I am thus enjoying this game very much. Do I have any other options for games in the WH Universe, or maybe an RTS that is easier? Thanks

Most 40k games are strategy titles. You should try the Dawn of War 2 Campaigns on easy, it really isn't hard.

The Dawn of War 2 campaigns really aren't RTS in the traditional sense. You only have a few units that you control most of the time. Also the first DoW games are pretty easy on lower difficulty. I'm pretty good at RTS and I have to play on the hardest difficulty for any sort of challenge and even that isn't much.

Dawn Of War Retribution and Soulstorm are the best to date

Lies. Retribution is great, but Soulstorm is a trainwreck.

Stick with Dark Crusade from the DoW1 series.

Let me rephrase - which is the easiest WH 40K RTS game. Cuz I'm see ***loads to choose from. Plus I only play singleplayer. Thanks

Who ever said soulstorm deserves to be dragged in front of the emperor and cleansed with holy fire.....


If you know Company of Heros Dawn of War 2 has adopted this play style; instead of the classic base building thing etc, the first dawn of wars to retribution have very story like campaigns!

Like you, RTS in general stress me out. It's too competitive and frantic, i can do that on FPSes but not RTS. It's why i only play SP and (easy-ish) custom games on Starcraft II.

But DOW2 is fine as long as you stick to sp and Last stand. Last stand is pretty fun and doesn't stress me out at all

Retribution goes on sale from time to time for cheap. You could also consider 'the last standalone" for $10 which contains the co-op survival mode in retribution - it's a lot of fun and not very complicated (you only control 1 unit that you equip with powers, equipment, weapons, etc). If you decide to pick it up let me know and you can add me to your friends list if you want to play.
