I ended up buying it, I'll let you know how it is.
Still playing DoW 2 as well, but I can usually only play a few matches before I get tired of it. Even so it's a great game.
Edit: OK, installed and I just played a skirmish. Multiplayer seems to be offline at the moment, but so far the skirmish mode is very fun. The gameplay is fast paced and very entertaining as you learn tactics to kill and survive. Upgrades, leveling, equipment, etc. is all very intuitive and enjoyable. Gonna play a few more matches to get a better feel for it.
