Seriously looking through the SS forum and around file front it's like watching a bunch of children bicker at recess.

If you don't like the game good for you, we don't care! don't get it, doesn't effect me any.

It's like everyone was expecting some sort of Massive change to game play and graphics, which they clearly said weren't going to happen.

So many people are bashing the game, and that's fine it's your own opinion, but thats all it is. OPINION, not fact. everywhere i hear whining about planes and balance, seriously deal with it. It's probably the most balanced dow game out (excluding the bugs the sob have) imo.

And all this gripping about cost? it's 40.00$ Canadian, if 40 bucks is going to break your bank, then maybe it's time for you to go and join the workforce, seriously if you go to a decent resteraunt for lunch the bill costs more than this game.

The game is more challenging now, and some people don't like allot of the new elements, i really didn't at first but they have grown on me, and now i am glad i can no longer beef up a areas defenses to the point were it's impregnable. I enjoy a good battle now, so when i attack a stronghold im excited when the enemy throws a gargantuan force at me to crush my meager defenses, because those are the battles i play the game for.

Im sure i'll have more to rant about later, but feel free to add something to this or complain about me and my opinions.

40 bucks is a lot for a expansion pack of a 4 year old game, it's not a matter of whether it's expansive or not as it is whether it's worth 40 bucks or not.

the thing about an expansion is it requires the original version this is a stand alone game ya dont need the other 3 so 40 canadian is reasonable if ya dont like it just dont get it, or get a job so you can. if ya say something is unfair well thats the way of thing life is unfair

Look, i played it. I think the only propblem is they rushed it, the loading bug, chaplin walks in question marks, air units spwan inside each other.

Like DC they shouldnt have released untill it was as best as they could make it rather than as soon as.

The red goes up like no tomorrow, and 40 isn't much, but a nice meal is worth 40, this im affraid to say, to me is not. I'm keeping it safe in the box untill Patch 1 comes out... then i will stop playing DC

Dinsy out

I agree it was a very rushed product and the complaining with that is almost justified, but once it has afew mods and patches im sure it will smooth out the rough patches.

Also on a side note, what is this loading bug that you speak of? i have never encountered it. And i don't see question marks when my chaplain walks, so im not sure about that though i know it was an issue in the first demo release.

There are many elements to complain about the game, im just sick of seeing little or no positive posts about soulstorm. And imo there are alot of positive elements.

WE do know it's been rushed. The build released to the public is in fact an older build that somehow got into printing.

And yes, I agree, most people are borderline stupid and just bought the game without even knowing a single thing about, with only reading the cover boxes. Thus they expected it to be just as massive as DC (which it almost is) yet all the little bugs are somewhat noticeable.

The thing is, most people don't see anything in context. They complain that SS is a smaller expo cokmpared to DC for the same price. Yet this people don't see that SS is actually bigger than WA (which also had it's bugs - most notorious the termie armor charging guardsmen) and that SS is just about bigger than any other RTS expansion. Once more I bring W#:The frozen throne to compare. That brought some slight changes to the old races and gave each about two new units unless I'm mistaken and a new hero. Compare it to the smallest of DOW's expansions WA. One full race, one unit for all the old races, major rework to each of the old races etc. Not to mention that w3:TFT is more expensive than SS.

Wraithcat frozen throne was made 6 years ago, which is a eternity in PC gaming. Standards on how to handle a RTS expansion have really changed since then.

ya but still, what did you guys expect, brand new game enqine, 1000 dif units, im sory to say this but things dont work that way. be hapy that they even made a expantion with 2 great races, and new campain. thats more than WA had and is still more than DC. i think ppl just want to complain just becous they dident check out the game befor buying, seriously they should have got demo first. personaly i think SS is pritty good my only complait is that IRON LORE cant be botherd to make decant maps and sky boxes. there worse than the orignal! other than that theres some small things but thats the main prob for me.

oi what about what ive been saying. this expasion is probally the best for modling teams suchs as my own. there such much you can imporve and change,espacilly for the air units.i must confess that i have only got the demo (im getting ss for my birthday), it is pretty bad,but liek i have been saying for ever and ever. in a couple of months or even weeks,when mods form lotw and ttru make mods ss,thats when this game will be sweet.

What did I expect? DOW2, no less. My expectations with soulstorm was pretty high because it's obvious Relic just wants dairy farm the DOW community by milking it for all it's worth. WA was made back in 2005 when adding only one new race was considered pretty good, so it cannot be compared to now where if you were to make a 3rd expansion the least thing they could've done besides the standard crap is added more graphical enhancements like the half life 2 episodes.
