    The game does a good job of ramping up the difficulty in all modes of play. The tracks get progressively more difficult to navigate, and the AI competition becomes tougher.

    The combat in this game may have achieved a perfect balance of what is possible when two un-armed humans engage in combat. Throw in an addicting career mode and you have a new standard in fighting games.

    Plants vs. Zombies is great fun, and is one of those games that will have you playing just one more level until you find that you've played for another hour or more.

    The island setting is realistic enough to make you start to sweat from the heat, and the advanced AI makes for some exciting action. It's just one of those games that is experienced as much as it is played.

    So, in short, Dawn of War II is not Dawn of War, nor is it like a traditional RTS game. What it is, though, is a fast-paced, tactics-focused game that's a lot of fun to play.

    It's probably as close to real combat as you would want to get. It's probably too realistic for hard-core shooter fans, and not realistic enough for sim fanatics, but everyone else will find it to be a thrilling game.

    Its world is not as wide-open and free as it would have you believe and you can still see repetition and patterns in its AI, but the game is enjoyable nonetheless and well worth your time to play.
