I still, however, find myself disappointed - not with the graphics (not as shiny as DoW2, but still very solid), but with the backwards step into being just another real-time strategy game. The opening movie is inauspicious, to say the least. There...

It's always difficult to step back to a previous version.* So, having tasted what the the Dawn of War II beta had to offer, I'm doing my best to give Dawn of War: Soulstorm, the latest stand-alone expansion for Relic Entertainment's...

Sometimes a developer just has to realize when it’s time to move on. A little over a year ago, Dawn of War released a very fun expansion, Dark Crusade. It did just about everything right for an expansion—new races, a fun new non-linear...

On the whole then Soulstorm is certainly not a bad expansion pack, but time has certainly conspired against it. Being released almost four years after the base game much of the game is showing its legs, especially in the graphics...

It may almost be impossible to name another game other that Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War to have received as much continued support from its developers. Released all the way back in 2004 the game has just received its third expansion pack, entitled...

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War was a revelation when first released back in 2004. It helped pioneer a new style of RTS in which base-building was minimized in favor of fast action, squad maneuvering and territorial control. Since then, the game has...

Sisters of Battle. Dessa religiösa fanatikers armé är mycket svårstoppad. Dark Eldar. Vill du testa att vara riktigt ond när du spelar strategi är detta rasen för dig. Dark Eldar utvinner bland annat kraft ur förlorade själar. Tre år är en evighet i...

International Review By FZ.se on 40

Iron Lore försöker sig med Soulstorm på att göra ett Dark Crusade . Premisserna är desamma som vi såg för ett år sen, men den här gången funkar det inte lika framgångsrikt. Det beror inte på konceptet och det är inte den gamla grafiken. Det handlar om...
