Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
Great Graphics! Great gameplay. Great sound! Awesome storyline and campaign! There is a different campaign for each of the nine races. Conquering the universe is so fun!
Not so Keen
My first opinion when i heard about this expansion coming out last year I was like, "sweet another two races, including the Sisters of Battle". But when I heard they weren't going to go the normal route with the addition of a new ground unit and going with an aerial unit I was bummed. No Chaos Dreadnoughts fellow heretics, sorry. Even with the high probability of the air units being overly powered I still bought Soulstorm to check out how badly Iron Lore screwed it up. So I eventually got around to pick up my copy of Soulstorm at Gamestop and took my new addition of the Dawn of War series home and installed it into my PC. I did what I normally do with the new expansions and check out the new races on skirmish and found they both were powerful, but some of your AI are dumb like the Dark Eldar's Talos. Place it in Assault stance and it goes chasing a squad of Space Marines across the map. Anyway, now came the inevitable, testing the air units. Surprising to me, they're very flimsy and not overpowered at all. But again, Iron Lore left out some of the intelligence in these units. Lastly I'm covering sound for this review. The voice overs for some the new units didn't sound like the races they were assigned to. (i.e. Hell Talon) Also the voices for the commander units of the "old" races were just reused from Dark Crusade. Oh, I almost forgot about the some of the new races unit's voices aren't even there. Let's just hope they come out with a patch for this game soon. I would have liked the game better if it were to have new ground units instead of air units. But Soulstorm is still a nice expansion to the Dawn of War franchise, so if you're a Warhammer 40k or even a Dawn of War fan go out and pick it up.
Y another eldar
If you know... Dawn of war are from Warhammer 40k from game workshop. And they Have DarkEldar. Also, there's a complete story about Dark eldar, who are they, y are they here, etc. It is very original, like Chaos marines and Space marines, they and the eldars are from same origin but their philosophy, their way of live is totally different. What Good about dawn of war (especially soul storm) is that when you are playing 4v4 online, Every one can have a different faction.
Death to the False Emperor
When I first picked the DoW series up, I couldn't put it down. I couldn't figure out why this series overpowered others. (C&C) Until I realized, each unit could attack each other. Unlike the games which you needed to build a specific unit to attack another, like an AA unit. But now we are bringing in air units, which to my perspective, could make or break the game. Hopefully there will be no need for an AA unit. But why another Eldar? The originals sucked so bad.
At long last..
Man, it's been awhile since I've played the DoW series, and I am so excited for this release. Great way to attract consumers with an outstanding cover like that... I don't think a game cover has had me more eager or in awe like that until now (except for DooM3, hehe...)
For the Emperor!
This game looks very well done and will fill in nicely with the series. I'm relly tired of everybody complaining about no nids, personnally they are the worst army in 40K anyway. But anyways, flying vehicles is a very awesome addition to the series. Considering a war can not be won by foot soldiers alone and also now we have a couple planets to fight over. I'm readying my Blood Ravens chapter for a fight. Can't wait.
Another addition to a great game
This will be an awesome game. Regardless of what some people have said, the Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle will be great additions. For those who think they're bad in the tabletop obviously haven't played anyone who knows what they're doing cause both armies can potentially dominate.
nids not in but looks sick
ive loved dawn of war since the board game and i was thinking if they could put the nids in but its really impossible to b/c how would they obtain resources but the game looks amazing the new races look ehhhhh but the addition of air units is gona change the game completely the game looks sick otherwise
Dark Eldar Suck!!!!!!!
The Game Rocks but the Dark Eldar are terrable and some of the new voice overs expecialy the Space Marines Captain is really bad and is one of the worst in the game. I believe the game will be awsome but there are just some parts of the game that where not done to the best ability. I would recommend this game but I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND PLAYING DARK ELDAR (they really are terrable).
Dow and nids' dont mix
I have been a huge fan of the dow since the beginning. But all you people who wnat nids' need to realize the game engine cant handle it in a good way. This maybe the last Dow game but its likely they will revamp or rebuild the engine to do the tyranids justice.
