    Soulstorm should have introduced decent air forces, not just these handful of hovering tank-like units. Otherwise a fun expansion as always. [Apr 2008]
  2. While it's getting long in the tooth, the Dawn of War series is nicely expanded with Soulstorm.
  3. The third installment of Dawn of War is motivating due to upgradable heroes and battles to conquer fortresses, which add to the standard missions. The missions, which can last up to two hours, are demanding. Quite often you will fight at several fronts at once while being pressed for time.
  4. There’s nothing new under the Dawn of War sun. Soulstorm is just a repeat of the Dark Crusade expansion, with two different factions thrown into the mix. It might be worth a look for those who absolutely have to complete the series, but most will get just as much mileage from the previous expansion.
  5. Dark Crusade had done everything already, but the two new races and better campaign are a decent addition when the price gets down to a decent level, that is.

    A robust addition to a titan of real-time strategy that plays well on PCs. But it's past time for Dawn of War 2 now. [May 2008, p.108]

    At this point, three expansions and three years after the original game, the factions in Dawn of War feel like the various menu items at Taco Bell: The order in which you pile on the beans, cheese, or lettuce doesn't make that big a difference.

    This is an amazing expansion! I got all expansions and the original game and I have to say: that the game is finally nearly perfectly This is an amazing expansion! I got all expansions and the original game and I have to say: that the game is finally nearly perfectly balanced, without too strong necrons and stuff like that. The campaign is great, there were a LOT of multiplayer-maps added. This is a multiplayer game, and one of the best ones! So much action, concentrated action due to the territory system (as in Company of Heroes)! It is a must have for a RTS-Fan! Expand

    This would have to be the best RTS on the market. The option to select from 9 different races has never been seen before in a RTS. Not only This would have to be the best RTS on the market. The option to select from 9 different races has never been seen before in a RTS. Not only is the attention to detail superb, but game play is seamless, and with the mix of 9 different races keeps you on your toes. I would recommend this game to anyone wanting to purchase a RTS.

    Soulstorm does not deliver - the campaign is sub-par compared to Dark Crusade, and 40k cannon is pretty much raped (imperial guard generalSoulstorm 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. Expand

Just simply nothing new in tactis or gameplay at all so its definetely not worth that amount of money. I'll stick with DC thanks online and single player. Expand

    Terrible. Deserves a zero purely because its Dark Crusade with two rather bad new races which are essentially clones of Eldar and Space Terrible.

Despite what the fanboys say 'air units' add no tactical or strategic options and are just land speeders hovering a bit higher Expand
