Excited but been hearing mixed reports about the single player campaign. A number of reviewers seem to brush it off as just an expanded tutorial for the multiplayer.

Yeah, it sounds like the focus was much more on the multiplayer this time around.

Guess I'll have to wait till the game goes on sale. Not much for PvP. Damn....

I haven't played the game nor intend to ever at this point. DoW 1 was an absolutely amazing classic RTS with an awesome setting and story, by far my fav of the series and it makes my favorite games ever list. DoW 2 was a departure to a smaller scale, ability based mixture of mostly an RTS with kinda an action rpg mixed in. While its gameplay was average at best to me its story was enough to keep me hooked and overall I enjoyed it a little.

DoW 3 seems like a complete departure from the classic RTS, the game play I really loved. The story by all accounts is meh at best. The game play is more of that of a MOBA, no thank you, with some RTS mixed in. 

I have no interest even if it was on sale for a decent chunk off. It would take a serious mod that changed a lot of the gameplay for me to play.

Its sad the franchise is kinda dead to me, they have abandoned its roots and I really wouldnt call the gameplay ive seen a classic RTS let alone a RTS at all. Im sure some people will love the new direction. Just not me and anyone that liked the older games.

I've given it a play.  The single players actually pretty fun, but I doubt it'd appeal to people new to the series given it relies on you knowing who characters like Gabriel angelos are...hell I was thrown for a curve as it introduced a eldar character who only appeared in one of the DoW 1 expansions and in the novels..

That said, I would recommend it to play.  The tutorial guides well done to guide old and new players into the new features and I am happy to see a mix of DoW 1's base building and DoW 2's elite squads aspects.  Its worth a go to fans of the series.

I saw that the game is currently hitting 50% off sales if folks have any interest in saving money.
