I thought it was terrible when I first played it. However, once I realized that the campaign was better than it first appeared and that the two new races weren't half bad, I actually felt that it was worth the money I spent on it. If you absolutely despise soulstorm after playing a couple skirmishes or a few campaign battles, try it again. Chances are you'll like it the second time.

Honestly, the campaign is boring and irritating in comparison with dark crusade. However, if I hadn't already played through the dark crusade campaign 5 times, I probably would have loved it. The new HQ missions are awesome (although aircraft can win half of the HQ missions by themselves). The only annoying thing about the campaign is that some provinces and HQs can only be gotten to through one webway gate or province. The first time I played through the campaign, I saved the planet with the necron and eldar HQs for last. Big mistake. Imagine my surprise when I realized that the only way to get to the planet was to defeat a necron-controlled strength 10 province with only the "capture at least half of the critical locations" objective. It's hard to control two critical locations when two squads of pariahs, two necron lords, some squads of necron warriors, and a bunch of tomb spyders are constantly attacking them (fortunately, I had 4 squads of marines, 2 or 3 squads of assault marines, and a bunch of honor guard units on my side). There are two dreadfully terrible facts about the soulstorm campaign that make it worse than dark crusade (at least in my opinion):
1. Unlike dark crusade, if you capture a province in soulstorm your buildings don't stay there. They just disappear, making you have to rebuild them with planetary requisition, which is very precious early on in the game.
2. If your province is attacked by an enemy and you decide to use auto-resolve, nearly all of your garrison forces and buildings are destroyed, no matter what.

I haven't messed with Soulstorm at all, and haven't played DoW in over a year, but I must say that the clip just shown was hilarious.... I have a new 'respect' for metal boxes, lol.
