Summary: This is an unnecessary expansion to a great game. The addition of the Sisters of Battle and the Dark Eldar do not add much, and the Dark Eldar designs are outdated. You can skip this one. Buy the DOW Platinum Pack and call it good.
Summary: Soulstorm is very much like "Dark Crusades; however, we are introduced to two other races, the"Dark Eldar" and The "Imperial Sisters". These women know how to kick butt big time. Loved the action. The game is more challenging than "Dark Crsades". It does not allow the gamer to keep what he/she builds on a providence when your race takes over that region. This allows for more difficult and challenging gaming. So, get it and take control of your destiny. Save the planets!
Summary: i bought the gold ed after having played the first one for quite some time . i have SOME fun with this game once in a while , the addition of the new race : the imperial guard , and a new squad type for each of the other races was nice . but i play it much more seldom after the gold ed instalation .
Summary: I can't get enough Warhammer products. I first played Rogue Trader on my neighbor's ping pong table in 1988 with lead figures purchased in GB pounds. Against my better judgment, I continue to buy Black Library novels well into my middle age. There is something thrillingly atavistic about the game's values. Very few contempory institutions openly celebrate willful ignorance, blind faith, intolerance and martyrdom.
Summary: I'm a huge fan of DoW, and in no small part against having two new races to play until Relic gives us the sequel. Unlike lots, I didn't scream and cry that the Tyranids aren't in Soulstorm, and I'm perfectly happy with DE and Sisters. The gameplay itself is still superb, the type of RTS you'd expect from Relic by now. Aside from a bit more slowdown in the actual gameplay than in previous DoW titles, it's everything that DC was, plus the two new races.
Summary: While Soulstorm keeps the key gameplay elements that have kept me playing the DoW series for 4 years after it came out, this game mostly just offers more of the same, without too much that is new. The two new races are pretty cool, but with 9 races now, it almost feels like there is too much in the game, and not enough to distinguish the different races. The Sisters of Battle play to me like a compromise between the Imp. Guard and the Space Marines.
Summary: This game has so much promise, it could be the ultimate RTS title but it misses the mark. Basically you gather resources from strategic points in order to build a base that builds your Army. Then you take your Army into combat in order to destroy the other guy's base. Straight forward, "gather and gun" trigger map RTS gameplay with really nice animation. The single player campaign isn't bad but the switch from Space Marines to Eldar forces is a little jarring.
