Alright, so I finally got to make a full run of DOW II on steam and now I can say with certianty that the campaign was modified and changed from what it was originally when it was launched for Games for Windows Live.
What do I mean by this? well there has been very significant changes to wargear drops.
For Example, when I originally played the game at the end I had all my squads in terminator armor and my commander wearing an artificer arfmour full of bling with a sundr hammer. Now you never get those drops. at the most you'll have pure terminator armor without powerists or an actual fire range weapon.
Furthermore, now you wont be able to increase their firepower, meele or health as much as they could. It's as if they nerfed the vDOWII experience in favor of the chaos rising experience.
And yes I know perfectly well of what I am talking about and if I do it's because I have Passion for DOW. I got absolutely ALL the achievements for DOW II and chaos rising for GFWL/Xbox back in the day. I finished both campaigns AT THE LEAST 8 to 10 times each! So the new incarnation for steam ahs been quite dissapointing! I did not even got to see a lot of the important SM discussions because of the changes, the campaign felt a lot more shorter now.
