Warhammer 40000 Dawn of War - Gameplay HD 169 - 1280x720.
Well, its widescreen, even though its not supported. In-Game menu is stretched but the rest is in proper proportion. Its zoomed and cropped in this mode, so youre not seeing more; but less vertically.
A couple examples

Just as it was with "prince of persia sands of time".
Its good for widescreen notebooks, where you can't "tell" your display to not stretch 43 image to 169.

Everything was set to max.
Run pretty good on Core2Quad 3GHz, 4GB RAM, Radeon HD 4650 1GB. Win XP pro 32Bit. Of course there are some slowdowns but quite rare. Especially when there is a lot of smoke. Looks like this GPU is not good at calculating smoke-like effects. I was having the same slowdowns in high res on Prince of persia. But, hey! its one of the cheapest graphic cards on market!
Playing this in widescreen is quite inconvenient, coz like i said, it's zoomed and cropped on top and bottom of the image. And when you play this in such a small res like 1280x720, its getting pretty annoying. Normally i played this in 43 - 1600x1200 res. which was kinda good. But having a lot of characters, even on such resolution, forces you to move screen in order to control everything.
Another thing is that i tried to complete this battle within 10 min. Thats why i jumped all over the places )there was like 4min to the end of this mission. I had to wait till countdown show 00000. ;) And then- "Mission Success"

Pretty good game.
It was just "Warhammer 40000 Dawn of War". No expansion packs.
