Reviews and Problems with Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War: Soulstorm
Showing 1-10 of 40

Summary: Soulstorm does not deliver - the campaign is sub-par compared to Dark Crusade, and 40k cannon is pretty much raped (imperial guard general simply 'loosing' one hundred Baneblades - good laugh, though). The game is, like it's precedessors, ok online, though the new races don't seem balanced enough.
Summary: This game killed Dawn of War, the introduction of flying units (that never really flew they just couldn't be attacked in close combat by other ground units) and the buggy Dark Eldar and Sisters Of Battle, again the campaign was a risk type control all locations on the system map, but you could play as any race again this ruins the story of it overall the worst expansion for Dawn of War and quite possibly the worst game ever made … Expand
Summary: This game is the best one so far,have not played Dawn of War II yet, but i think game play wise this one has that beat. The fact that now you have flying toys for your army is awesome in most cases. If you enjoyed playing any other Dawn of War title then you will love, or like this game. If you never picked these series of games up, then its time you do. Being able to play the Space Marines, or Tau and just kill everything in your path is a very liberating experience.
Summary: METAL BOXES! this is the cry of Firraeveus Carron, the champion of chaos as he boldly stikes at the space marines attacking rhinos. the units response lists are limited, reptitive, and overall really annoying. The cutscene scripts are highly laughable ensuring a high humor quality to the game. But unfortunatly thats not what DoW is about.
Summary: Of all the three I would call it the worst expansion. Really. The campaign is all the same as DC pick your side and pwn everyone non-sense. I wanted a decent storyline for once. Air units are absolute trash. The whole point of air force IRL is to fly by barraging/bombarding and be out of enemy's reach in seconds while in SS they just hover above like some awkward tanks that can' t meleed bringing absolutely nothing new to the game while being buggy as hell.
Summary: Soulstorm is a great game but i have to say if you alreay have the original dawn of war get dark crusade first. Though soulstorm is a sweet game you need the variety Dark crusade has. Soultorm is a solid game, good graphis even though it is fairly old, and I haven't run in to any bugs.
