Review 2 for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
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.

Review 3 for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
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
Eliphas the Inheriter
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...)
Review 6 for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
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.
Review 8 for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm

Review 9 for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
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.
Review 11 for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
Response to everyone
I notice all of you have said c'mon where are the tyranids and as a huge fan of DOW myself I look at it as another DOW game and I know since they didn't add the tyranids in I can look forward to another game so once i get bored of this one they can keep making more! I don't care if they make 1 more game or 4 more they will eventually put the tyranids in but until then have fun with what they give.
Additional information about bartimeus8 could not be loaded.
I really like the new races especially the dark eldars the game is awesome so i recomend it.
Review 12 for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
This is where the 'nids are!
Relic/THQ long ago addressed why the tyranids are not in the game. Putting tyranids into DoW is not like adding masses of zerglings. They stated that they were simply unable to make the tyranids look/feel/appear in a manner which does justice to the 'nids themselves from the tabletop game. until they are able to add them in their full glory, they arent going to dumb down a seriously cool army just to put them in. On a side note. SoulStorm will rock.

Review 14 for Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm
Where are the Tyranids!!
I am a huge fan of the tabletop games as well as the PC version. I just dont understand why the Tyranids have not been included. They are a original and popular army. Do we have to go through every version of "Dark", Chaotic or Space Marine chapter before we get to them. I will still get them game but will curse GWS at the same time!
