  1. Soulstorm should have introduced decent air forces, not just these handful of hovering tank-like units. Otherwise a fun expansion as always. [Apr 2008]

The cutscene scripts are highly laughable ensuring a high humor quality to the game. But unfortunatly thats not what DoW is about. Its campaign mode is ripped from DC and the aircraft is enough to make the Emperor himself break down in tears with how low quality they are. If you plan on buying this game, do it to laugh at the campaign mode (I reccomend chaos for this one) or the multiplayer which is alright, but not as good as Dark Crusade. Full Review »
