Awesome game but takes a long time to play a single mission.
4 November 2012
Summary: This game is amazing. The different races you can choose makes this game awesome. The only problem with the game that made me give it a four is that to play one mission it takes 30 mins. - 1 hr to finish a campaign mission. This makes the campaign long but i simply do not have this much time to do a mission.
Summary: Soulstorm is a great game to add to your Warhammer 40k Dawn of War collection. Good RTS gameplay with ample units to use and command. Two new races from the Warhammer 40k are thrown into the mash, The Sisters of Battle and the Dark Eldar, along with new flying units for every race. Graphics are a good improvement from the last game, with better lighting and sharper textures. One thing I found a bit disappointing was the voice acting.
Summary: This addition is great. It stands alone on its own as a great game, but also works great for the person that has the other versions of the Dawn of War game. Burn the daemons as the zealous Sisters of Battle or tourture and enslave the galaxy with the devious Dark Eldar. Great game and addition.
Summary: This is a great game. It has alot of depth and variations. The newer versions of this game may look better, but has no where near the depth and quality of play that this game has. Build your army and conquer the galaxy!Great deal on this game, it has several armies and maps to play. You can take the armies and repaint them to make them look the way you want them.
Summary: Back in its heyday I was a big fan of RTS games, but had not really played one in quite awhile when the buzz surrounding Starcraft II got me interested. After electing to wait until it was out long enough for the price to drop a bit I picked up this game instead, having frequently heard reference the various incarnations of the Warhammer universe but never trying any out.
Summary: THere are two ways to look at an expansion like this. The first is a stand-alone critique looking at the expansion alone with no outside context. The second is to look at it with respect to what it brings to the table beyond the original game (and any prior expansions in this case). This game holds up much better from the first viewpoint as it's best items are almost all drawn from the earlier warhammer releases.
Summary: No real flaws as this game was clearly made for existing fans of the series. Yes everyone has whined about this but I bring this up again simply because of this. Dawn of War II has come out and it sucked BAD. This means we can expect NO future expansions for the orginal DoW including the Tyrannids. My only other complaint is that the campagin does not allow you to customize your army.
Summary: title says it all--the game has awesome action, the AI is beefier, but I have to wonder if it is too much so. there are some levels on medium, i find, that are nearly impossible and thus could turn off casual players. Aside from this, the load times in my opinion are unnecessarily slow and it should have been fixed before releasing it as a final product. Still worth buying. on a completely different note: to all game makers: When I buy a game, it's fine.
