Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War


Game Title: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War

Description: In my opinion, Warhammer 40k Dawn of War (1) is flawed in audio design. The game is an RTS and as you may or may not be aware a typical RTS player selects and deselects units often.
Units in Dawn of War respond with long ‘motivational’ sentences such as “For the Emperor” and the like when you select them or order them to attack/move. Some units give the feeling they’re holding a speech.
Combined with an unvaried combination of speeches this makes for an annoying audio feedback system while moving and fighting with your army.
