Crispy Gamer: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm Review

Crispy Gamer writes: "By the time Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War - Soulstorm hits the bargain bin and can be had for 20 bucks, it should be worth the investment -- chances are the game will have received a patch or two by then and the active mod community will have cranked out user-made content to beef up the artificial intelligence. However, as it stands, the final add-on to one of the best real-time strategy franchises of the decade is underdeveloped and overpriced.

The two new factions are the Sisters of Battle and the Dark Eldar. In the Warhammer 40K universe, the Sisters are fanatical devotees to the god-emperor -- sort of like the Space Marines, only female and not genetically altered.

What's Hot: Sisters of Battle and Dark Eldar add to the growing Dawn of War retinue; Stand-alone nature means you get all the races for solo play
