DoW2 is nothing like Demigod in gameplay
Its like comparing a fps to a rpg

They're both RTS games with RPG elements with no bases where you mostly control one hero character. Tell me the differences and I'll listen, but saying they're different genres entirely is pretty far off I would guess.

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.

Like previously mentioned, this game feels so much like a refined version of the Defense of the Ancients mod for WC3. There are grunts you can kill for XP and gold, towers you have to destroy that shoot at you, and the whole levelling up and purchasing item system. Not a bad thing though, I enjoyed DotA. Is it par for the course for Stardock games to not have any sort of campaign mode? I remember Sins of a Solar Empire not having one either.

The developer is Gas Powered Games, I think it's more coincidental. Also the type of gameplay here doesn't lend itself well to a single-player campaign mode, I think the tournament mode suits it better. I played through a tournament and a couple online matches last night and had a really good time.

This game is pretty good. However, I still don't understand the lacking of a campaign mode.

Did a small graphics options overview and performance review in my blog for Demigod here: http://hardwarecomplex.wordpress.com...rmance-review/

Its been fun so far, although I haven't gone online yet (just been playing against bots). It's too bad there isn't a LAN multiplayer option though that doesn't require you to log online. I would really like to play this with my roommate and a few friends, but the cheapskates aren't willing to buy the game.

Impulse sent me some coupon codes to get this game for $19.99, if anyone wants them.

You're too much of a Steam fanboy to have one.

Sorry.
