I noticed that there's a lot of vitriol directed at DoW for daring to not play exactly how old school RTSers have gotten used to (having to step outside their bubble being as anathema to them as a cadian pylon to ol' skullface). This is a little frustrating since, mediocre to bad story aside, this game is outright fun as hell.
And then I noticed this about the top review:
The game has been out for just over 48 hours. This guy spent 44 of those hours playing this game. Naturally it's awful.
