(this is not a I hate DoW2 thread, I love it personally just want to see people's opinions)
We're all aware that DoW2 is lacking greatly in the synch kill department and I hope relic are aware too of how disappointing this is to a lot of fans and might patch some things in but does anyone miss the epic things like how the force commander would regularly do knockback attacks on enemies that litterally sent them flying into the air (and the eldar would do an awesome landing animation on their feet).
It seems a lot of that over the top stuff has gone. Now it's purely the main heroes that can properly knock enemies back and they dont' fly far unless dead. I miss having non hero squads send other usnits flying to land in smoke trails like the ground like the necron untis who were covered in skin. I miss walkers throwing the bloody corpses of the units they've picked up and kill half the map away. I miss the silly bits of dark humour that fit so perfectly with the warhammer world like a dead unit getting stuck on the bloodthrister axe so he has to shake it to get it off.
They've added plenty of really awesome stuff like the assault jump landing knockback and I do really enjoy playing DoW2 online but it just feels like they've toned down the really silly over the top ideas from the first game and it's sad to see.
And to be honest, there hasn't been a single thing in DoW2 that has made me think "holy crap that was awesome" so much as seeing this for the first time: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aKHsj5y8UL8
Does anyone else feel the same way?
