Based on Warhammer 40,000 the third and final expansion to the genre-defining and critically-acclaimed RTS, Dawn of War. In Soulstorm, two new armies are introduced – Sisters of Battle and Dark Eldar - raising the total number of playable armies to nine. The revolutionary meta-game that was first introduced in Dark Crusade is further expanded to an interplanetary scale, allowing players to battle across the star system.
The one of the greatest moddable games!
This is one of the greatest rts games on this planet. It has also great mods you can play this forever.
I like it.
Failure expansion pack.
Campaign is just a caricature on a Dark Crusade campaign. At first sight, campaigns may look the same, but Dark Crusade's was a breakthrough, which improved the whole campaign system while Soulstorm's does not add something unique and turned out even worse - poor dialogues, silly reasons of conflict between imperial troops, less interesting strongholds and ridiculous lore blunder - Alpha Legion wage a war openly.
As regards game main component - the pack adds two races with meager balance, but what is a lot worse is aviation. Unlike Dark Crusade's new units (Harlequins, Heavy Weapons Teams and etc.), which fit the game well, aviation in Soulstorm completely can not be realized in current game engine qualitatively and looks extremely foolish.
If this pack had been created by some sort of mod-makers team, it would be a decent project. But for professional developers, who had more, than 30 employees, it is a fail.
Main thought: More does not mean better.
Best RTS since Warcraft 3.
Personally never had that much interest or like for Warhammer, but the excellence of Dawn of War made fall in love with it. have even been reading warhammer books because of this game :D
Superb graphics, Sound/music is great, animations are amazing.
The only thing i didnt like about soulstorm was the lack of persistent bases like you have in darkcrusade, but there is a mod for it, so its all good :)
The best Warhammer 40k classic strategy game, one of the best moddable games (pity that it's extremely hard to make single player maps...), and a very good game overall.
LOVE IT..that's all I can say !
The best for the modding community.
