Reviewers Liked

  • Campaign has tight pacing and forces creative, interesting play choices
  • Every faction feels unique (if not quite as unique as the last game's)
  • New races and creatures provide radically different strategic and tactical options

Reviewers Didn't Like

  • Few playable factions in competitive multiplayer modes
  • Engine and gameplay systems might be too familiar to owners of the first game
  • Painfully long load times
